  1. My sister and I do the same outside gossip thing. So far her kids don't show symptoms of celiac, but she has it and sees how my mom treats us different from time to time too. If mom bakes a cake she will say my sister CAN'T have it and I WON'T eat it. I don't get why she does this, especially seeing I have been through all the biopsys and blood tests (which she was with me when I got my first results). You would think that of all people she would understand. My mom is also the type that loves drama, and probably has something mentally wrong. I don't say that to be mean to her, I love her, but I'm in my 30's now and have suspected she has a screw lose since I was about 12. You all are so right: If he stays with anyone at all I will always pack ALL of his food. Ugh. There's so many gluten free options now, there's no excuse.
  2. Yeah, well, I've talked to her. She understands, I think. I guess she never had to watch him sit on the toilet while puking into a bucket in his lap after eating something bad. The motor oil idea is funny. I know I can't protect him forever, but he's only 6! So, since he has known how to read since he was 2, I told him he is reading all the labels himself before eating. He's cool with that, and really is distrustful now of eating anything anyone but me gives him.
  3. I am celiac. I tested positive multiple times on my blood tests and had one biopsy. I always got migraines, and skin problems, along with my stomach symptoms. My son started having migraines and vomiting last summer, but has had chronic constipation since he was a baby (and he's always been small for his age). He also suffers from gastritis and reflux, like me. He was blood tested positive, but negative biopsy. I took him off gluten anyway and all his symptoms disappear. The problem is getting other people to believe he can't eat gluten. They act like it's a phase I'm going through because I used to be a vegetarian. Once I couldn't eat gluten I started eating meat. I also have PCOS so I can't eat many carbs. I just want people to take us seriously! I even have cousins and their kids that were diagnosed with celiac. My sister can't eat gluten or she gets all over body pains. So I know we can't eat it, but it's not a big deal. There are so many foods without gluten, why does my mother have to give him fudge brownie icecream? Sorry for the vent, but I know you all are the only ones that understand.
