  1. I am referring to how a restaurant makes sushi. they mKe it sticky somehow and when i googled it the article said the way its prepared is not gluten-free.
  2. Would This Bother You?

    RMJ...exactly! thats what bothered me the most, was she mentioned she thought about it but didnt buy anything i could eat. ugh
  3. I just recently found out sushi rice is not gluten free. So, I've stopped eating sushi. Maybe your neighbor was thinking about sushi? there's something about the way they prepare it to make it sticky. But...on the other hand...people are so clueless about what gluten is. Like the wheat vs. white flour. ugh
  4. Would This Bother You?

    I never expect to be catered to. I guess my point is people are insensitive...especially when they say oh sorry...and I thought of getting some veggies too...honestly it was just odd to see pasta and cake...not very balanced meal. And....yes I know I cannot change people. Just talking about it helps me.
  5. Sometimes I don't know if I am just too sensitive or if people are just plain rude and insensitive. Yesterday at work a co-worker who knows I have to eat gluten free went out and bought a bunch of pasta and cakes to welcome back a co-worker who was gone for a few months. I walked into the break room and saw nothing gluten free at all. She looked at me and said "Sorry!". She also admitted she thought about getting some veggies to go with the food...but didn't. she even said she thought the restaurant had gluten-free options! One person said she would eat a piece for me. Yeah, right. I kept thinking about this after I left work. Is it really that hard to buy some veggies? Even for the people who eat gluten? How would you feel? Would you just blow it off? I am just tired of people's insensitivity.
  6. The bigger picture might be to ask yourself if you really want to keep living with a guy like this. Doesn't respect you and your needs, doesn't believe you, sounds like he gets mad easily too.
  7. My Potluck Comment

    It only bothered me because she came right out and said "Too bad you can't eat this...it's really good!" While shoving the cake in her mouth. It was rude.
  8. My Potluck Comment

  9. My Potluck Comment

    Tee hee...thanks! It was rude the way it happened, she said this while shoving the cake in her mouth. Maybe next time I'll say "Ok, maybe I will have a bite...then I can pass gas in your direction the rest of the day!!" lol
  10. My Potluck Comment

    Exactly! She did exactly that...made that comment while shoving it in her face. People don't get it. But she also sends me great gluten-free recipes. It's weird. Before my diagnosis, I never really noticed how much people talk about food!!! It's like they've never eaten cake, donuts or bagels before.
  11. Work Potluck

    Could it possibly be something you ate the day before? Sometimes my symptoms don't show up until the next day.
  12. So today at work we are having a potluck. Everyone kept talking about how wonderful the carrot cake was. On and on and on. I didn't say a word. Most of the food was gluten free, so that was nice. Someone told me "I am so sorry you can't eat gluten, this cake is SO GOOD." Finally I just said "That's ok, it will make you fat anyway." ha. I couldn't resist. I told her "sorry, I couldn't resist saying that." Sometimes I have little tolerance....and I thought her comment was annoying.
  13. Coping With Hives

    I broke out in hives after taking Penicillin a few months ago. First time having hives. I thought I was going to die. I can't imagine dealing with this all the time. I had to go to the ER and get a steroid shot. they also gave me Atarax for itching. It helped, but made me tired. Everything makes me tired!
  14. Hi. Just curious if you eat the same types of foods all the time. I have such a sensitive stomach, I am thinking about only eating the same things over and over. It gets so depressing to react to everything I eat. My daughter and I are going to start a juice cleanse diet. I just wish I didn't have to eat. At work today there are a bunch of pastries. Whoopee. Sometimes I just want to eat a donut!! thanks for listening.
  15. Upset With Culvers

    I agree with just telling restaurant workers you have an allergy. Then they get it. And they dont want you to stop breathing. Lol.
