  1. Sending good thoughts your way! It really does suck to be left out, especially when you are willing to go out of your way to meet everyone's needs.
  2. I have experienced the same kind of things! I am 100% gluten free, diagnosed celiac, but I was still feeling very ill, so I thought maybe some secret gluten was sneaking in. I went to my gastroenterologist, ran some tests, and discovered that I had gastroparesis, reflux, and lactose intolerance. The gastroparesis and the lactose problems were causing all of the severe gas pains. I went on omeprazole for the reflux and it has made a huge difference! I also use a special wedge pillow. I guess what I"m trying to say is, it could be a combination of things, so if possible, you should see a specialist. A few days of testing alleviated years of pain.
  3. My favorite comment of all time was: Friend: So you can't have donuts right? Me: No, no donuts. Friend: What about chocolate donuts? Me:....still no Friend: Muffins? Me: *sigh* This is the friend (clearly not the greatest friend) who still to this day will invite me to hang out with her and then take me to a bakery and say, "oh yeah, are there gluten free things here? The cream puffs are really good!"
  4. Losing my chance to be a humanitarian aid worker in third world countries.
