  1. Emotional Symptoms

    I am so glad to read all of these posts about people who go through the EXACT things that I do; some of those posts were almost as if they were describing me when I accidentily eat gluten. My friends don't understand it, but I sure am glad to know that there are other people out there who go through the same thing when they eat gluten. Thank the good Lord for this forum
  2. Dear Gluten, Wheat, Barley, etc., I.Hate.You. You have made my life pretty miserable. You ruined so many things for me. Why are you so offal to my stomach? You make it hurt like no other-you give me unbarable stomach issues. You disabled my body from absorbing any nutrients, you dirty rotten scum. Thanks for making me so sick all those years. You take away my focus and my ability to really listen, you took away my ability to really do my best in school. And aside from all of this, which REALLY makes me hate you-is the fact that you hurt my personality. You made me stuck in a "fog." I couldn't laugh, or be crazy, or have fun, because you forced me to be stuck in a foggy state of mind. Your the ultimate fun-sucker. You made me angry and anxious. You caused me to have very little pacients, to be very quick-tempered, to be jumpy and annoyed. You made me ask what was wrong with me, when really, it was you all along. And for this reason, I hate your guts(and dont forget you destroyed mine). I'm SO glad i learned to stay away from you. I'm SO glad I live without you now. I'm completely better without you; I'm a different person without you! So stay away from me-forever. I'll never, ever miss who I was when I was around you. Because I truely HATE YOU! I just had to get that out.
  3. Does anyone know if there is a hotline where you can call/text to ask if a food contains gluten? Something like CHA CHA, or KGB? Often i don't know if certain foods contain gluten, or if certain companies put gluten in their products. It would be nice to be able to call a hotline, or text someone reliable to find out quickly.
  4. Recently I have been getting stomach aches almost everyday. After going over and over everything that i eat, i discovered that my shampoo has Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Oat Protein, and Wheat Germ in it. But even though i just wash my hair with it, could it really be causing me so much pain, and giving me these stomach aches? Or do you think that it is something that i ate?
  5. I have had celiac disease and been gluten free for 6 months. Since then I have never been "glutened" or eaten gluten on accident. But last Sunday, I accidentally ate a bowl of soup that had an additive with traces of wheat in it. On Monday, I had stomach issues all day long (bloating, gas, and horrible waves of stomach pain). but its been 4 days, and I still get a stomach ache almost every day. They don't last all day like they did the day after i ate the soup, but they still hurt, and last about 1 to 2 hours. does it take this long for your body to get better after eating gluten? I only ate one bowl of that soup, and it has caused me alot of pain! How long does it take for everyone else to feel better after being glutened?
  6. Are they gluten free? I looked them up online, it said that they don't add any gluten, although they cannot be sure that all raw materials are 100% gluten free. Is that ok? or should i call the manufacturer?
  7. I've been on the gluten free diet for almost two months now, but I don't really feel better than I did before I was diagnosed. When people ask me if I feel like a new person now that I'm on the diet, I frown and want to say, "No. not really. I'm not." When will I get better?? I dont have alot of the stomach-related symptoms, I have more of the joint and autoimmune symptoms. I also have delayed growing. I'm 16, but I have the body of an 11 year old, and i'm skinny. When will I feel better? When will I look better, and have more energy?
  8. Buddy's Bar-b-q

    Does any one know if there is anything gluten free at Buddy's?? Is their pork ok to eat? how about their baked beans?
  9. Hi. I just got diagnosed with Celiac's about a month ago. I'm doing fine with eating so far. But I have read in two different books that natural and artificial flavoring could be a source of hidden gluten. Is that true? I've noticed that nearly everything i eat has either natural or artificial flavors in it, even my gluten free food. Should I avoid all natural and artificial flavoring? Will it hurt me if i don't? Also, it said artificial coloring was bad too. should i avoid all of that too?
