  1. My mother, bless her heart, tried so hard to prodive a gluten- free Christmas meal for me. She bought a gluten-free corn bread mix, but then sprayed the pan with a flour-based spray, and didn't tell me, until after I had eaten it. Is there anything I can do to purge the gluten out so I can start to feel better? I feel like I want to puke but I can't. I'm also feeling a groggy brain fog, so forgive me if my post doesn't make any sense. Also, hubby and I have been trying to concieve, and I just got my first period in several months, after diligently following the diet. I really think that my fertility is linked with gluten. Do you think this is going to set us back a couple of months TTC? Or maybe just this cycle is shot? I'm just feeling really dumpy after being glutened, and being around lots of kiddos at the holidays that remind me of my childless state.
  2. Does anyone know what items are gluten-free at the Hops Restaurant Chain?
  3. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  4. Amenorrhea And Celiac

    I had been using oral contraception for about five years, until I stopped in July. Here it is November, and I am still experiencing "post-pill amenorrhea," or so I thought. Hubby and I are using condoms, until my cycle returns, and have had nothing but negative pregnancy tests. I haven't had a single period since withdrawl bleeding immediately after my last pill. If I follow the gluten-free diet, I should be just as fertile as any other woman, right? I have been a normal weight for almost 8 months now. I spoke with a doctor, who suggested I just wait it out (not that I trust those boogers anyway, but that is a whole other topic). What are my options? Should I see a chiropractor, or midwife, or just keep waiting? I hope I am not getting too personal, but did anyone else have trouble comming off the pill, even when following the gluten-free diet? I have no idea if this is just the after effects of the pill or Celiac.
  5. I'm wanting some damn pizza too! Until I actually make the gluten free version....I'll just dream!


  6. It's Just A Marketing Fad, Just Like Atkins!?

    Wow, that is amazing. Thank you so much for this link, and the advice as well.
  7. I have been gluten-free for nearly a year. I was initially real excited to have a diagnosis and not puke everyday, but now its setting in that I will never have certain food items. What really irks me though is that when I eat with certain extended family and friends, they make comments about how the diet is a marketing ploy, or a silly fad, or how fifty years ago, no one had celiac. I also get comments that I shouldn't burden my husband with having to buy such expensive food items (not really true at all- I do the diet very cheaply). I really feel that the same extended family members that tease me, are actually carrying genes for celiac. Quite a few people in my family have had colon cancer, and other serious digestive disorders. There is no way I could convice them to go in for a test, if they insist the gluten-free diet is just marketing. So can anyone offer me some tips on how to respond? I usually just say that I'm happy that I am healthy, not throwing up, and weigh over 95 pounds for the first time in years.
