  1. That's so great! I say you definately get to deduct 4 years!
  2. Jason's Deli

    That is crazy. That is the location I visit most often and I never have a problem. Maybe they have imporoved since your visit. I have only been gluten free for a few months. I would have left if I were you as well.
  3. Nick's In Jackson Ms

    Thank you so much for posting this. I was just getting on here to find some places to eat when I visit Jackson for work later this month. Is there anywhere else you would recommend besides the chains like Outback, etc?
  4. Chik Fil A

    I have never had a problem with Chick-fil-a. They do a really good job. A manager at a local store told me they can do the grilled nuggets and chicken strips. I finally got brave enough to try the nuggets. I personally would just as well have a chicken breast I cut up myself, but I am sure kids would really like it. I want to try the strips next.
  5. Thanks so much for posting this. I have been battling plantar fasciitis for 2.5 years. Although I have gotten some relief through the shoes, supports, etc, it has not gone away. I was thinking about the relationship when it has recently gotten worse. I have gotten gluten 3 times recently. Hopefully, this will get better as I continue to heal! I was worried I was not going to get any better than I am now, unless I had surgery. Which from what I have read on the results of surgery for PF, I really do not want to go down that road.
  6. Yes, they are. I just had one over Christmas. I would call your local store to double check though.
  7. Here is a recipe I found that I have planned on trying. Haven't yet. I am not sure if you feel up to cooking or not. It doesnt seem to hard. http://www.grouprecipes.com/16124/gluten-free-saltine-crackers.html Recently, a friend that said EnerG has a cracker just like saltines. I haven't tried them yet either. Good luck!
  8. Jason's Deli

    I have not had a problem with the ones here in AR. They have been great and do carry the bread. Perhaps it was a new manager that didn't understand??
  9. Wonderful Friend

    That is so very nice! sounds like a true friend!
  10. That is so great! Many times I have wondered if I could get out of a speeding ticket if I got pulled over during those times. Then again the true fear of getting pulled over was the delay, not so much the ticket.
  11. Restaurant Nightmare

    I think the manager was really cheap on that one. They should have at least given you a free appetizer or something on your next visit in addition to the $8 off. Make sure they try to get you to come back. Sorry that happened!
  12. First, I am sorry if this is on the site and I couldn't find it. My DH has been very supportive of me going gluten free. He actually works at PF CHangs part time and knows about CC and knew a bit about the problems. Once I approached it as a potential problem, he was like 'I can see that...". However, I don't think he recognizes the emotional problems that can come from that. From me being glutened or me still recovering. I understand that is a much more difficult area to show. Emotional/personality changes are not something I initally thought of or recognized. However, I have done my research and understand a lot more now. He does not spend much time on the computer and is not research minded like I am. Does anyone have any tips of how I can bring up the topic and have some valid proof to back it up? He has never out right said that these problems are not valid, but he does appreciate valid sources.
  13. Dating A Celiac

    First, so awesome of you to be so caring and willing to accomodate at such a early stage. Is it wierd to carry around toothbrush - absolutely not. For completly different reasons, I used to in high school. I had some family issues and kind of traveled from friends house to friends house. I always had my back up essentials and no one ever once questioned that. Maybe I was lucky, but it is so not weird. It is just so awesome to hear someone of your age to be so compassionate about what dangers another person. You will go so far in your life whether it is with this guy or someone else all due to you being understanding. I would like to hope I would be the same way in your shoes but I was never faced with that.
  14. Peripheral Neuropathy

    I am SO curious of finding out how much my doctor friend knows about celiac and gluten sensitivity. She is about a year older than me, but we went to grad school for the first year together. She then was accepted to medical school but finished both degrees. I highly respect her knowledge and opinions so far. Unfortunely, she moved 3 hours away from me about the time I considered gluten free. I've told her through email I am gluten-free and how much it has helped me. I still don't know her understanding, compasion or knowledge of this. She just finished her residency in July so I think it would be great to know what her understanding is of this. I will find out soon. I hope that it is encouraging, rather than not. I will share either way just as perspective. Plus maybe she knows the emphasis or lack of emphasis put on Celiac during her timing of school.
  15. I just want to thank everyone that takes their time out of their lives for this forum. I know a lot of people, myself included, come here for information. That would never work if there wasn't such dedicated and nice people to share their information (probably over and over). I have had a really bad day today (not gluten related as far as I know), but just being able to read posts and information has kept me sane. There are no words to show my gratitude.
