  1. You know what feels better for your belly. Keep in mind that YOU are the one that hurts when you eat/drink something your body can't process. I have fallen off of the wagon before, and suffered for weeks after. That's what keeps me from doing it most days....now that I know how it feels to NOT have tummy pain all of the time, I don't want to go back to all that pain. I'm to the point that I have to juice. I may eat one small meal per day, but the rest of the time I juice (I AM NOT SUGGESTING THIS TO ANYONE, IT"S WHAT I HAVE TO DO TO BE OKAY), and I've been so much happier & the belly bloat is mostly gone. I keep all temptations that are my weakness, like no doughnuts in the house.....but the ones that I care little about are here for my family (like bread for sandwiches). Avoiding all temptations is what works for me. And now I'm staying away from restaurants because of an accidental exposing to gluten because it hurts so bad! hugs you!
  2. thank you both so very much! i think it's going to be a very long time until I ever venture out again!!
  3. Starbucks

    thanks for posting this suggestion! Perhaps that means I can have starbucks again! I can't believe that I didn't think of that before!! It's a shame more employees in resturants aren't trained about what exactly gluten free means. Some people think it's just noodles For me it's so much more! Thanks again!
  4. or at least it wasn't for me! I was told by different online sites that our Chilis (Savannah) provided a gluten free menu. I decided to give it a try. Ordered completely gluten free stuffs. Explained to them that I not only had celiac but also had crohns, and asked several times to make sure they were indeed gluten free. I couldn't believe the flare up I had! I called them and asked them about their menu.....they told me that they boil veggies in the same water that noodles were boiled in.....hello???!! That's NOT gluten free. They apologized and sent me coupons (which was awesome of them btw) and I decided to go back....and the flare up happened again to spite the fact I was even more careful at what I had to eat. This flare up I had was no joke. I'm simply not going back. What do you do to make sure you don't get cross contamination at resturants?
