  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I Think I Was Glutened Last Night.

    does anyone have a list of companies that list all gluten? I know that Kraft and ConAgra are safe. What about others? Thanks so much.
  3. My Toes Cramp

    Before my diagnosis and going gluten free, my feet cramped constantly, with the big toe curling up very painfully. I think part of it is vitamin deficiency, but I think it can't be all from that because when I accidentally get glutened now (which is very infrequent, thankfully) I will get foot cramps for a few days. That makes me think that it's possibly part of the neurotoxic reaction that I and many other people with celiac experience. Hope this helps.
  4. this is a great website that includes both prescription and OTC meds: http://glutenfreedrugs.com/ I see that you already have the answer to your Nyquil question, but I thought that this website may help you and others who read this thread in the future. Feel Better, Lisa
  5. I went to their website a while back and did the online chat with a person there who sent me their official statement that none of the chocolates are safe for someone with gluten intolerance. I wish I had copied it so that you could read it here, but it was pretty clear. for me, the fact the M&M's are gluten free is proof that God still loves me and wants me to be happy
  6. Here's a great site. http://glutenfreedrugs.com/ I hope that helps. Feel better!
  7. Wow! Sounds like I'm not alone in my sensitivity. I'll try the sensitive skin ones and see how that goes, then take further action if necessary. Thanks, everyone
  8. Wowzer--sounds yummy--can't wait to try it! THANKS for sharing
  9. Recently I'm noticing that when I use Bandaids I break out in a VERY itchy rash where the bandaid is. This is something new for me. I had a couple of moles biopsied last week and bandages became a real problem--itchier by the day. I tried Bandaid brand and also Nexcare brand. Does this mean I'm becoming latex sensitive or allergic? Could there be gluten in the glue? Could it be related to celiac? Any responses would be appreciated. Thanks.
  10. I just noticed that newbie Rook's Mommy has a birthday today-- HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! (now go have some gluten free cake!)
  11. Fiddle-Faddle, Thanks for articulating so well what I was thinking as I read this thread. I felt like Geoff was getting pummelled for his point of view, and was trying to figure out how to say what I thought. You summed it up perfectly--especially the part about feeling like you have a choice some days and not others. I don't think ANY of us would choose to have this disease and to have to be concerned about every molecule that goes into our mouths. That's what I think Geoff is trying to say, if I hear him correctly. And I couldn't agree with him more.
  12. Shopping

    I really like the envirokids Frosted Flakes. They're GRRRRRREAT! (seriously)
  13. I'm right there with ya, Jesse! The first thing I checked after my diagnosis was M&M's and skittles Proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy!!
  14. welcome, Jesse! I know how overwhelming it feels when you first get diagnosed. It took me a while to grieve, and sometimes I still tear up a little at pizza commercials. As for "fagels" (that's what I call my "fake bagels") the glutino ones are quite good, as are the kinnikinick (not sure I spelled that right). As for breads, make sure that whatever kind you choose, you toast it a little to make it edible....makes a huge difference. It is a sharp learning curve, but you'll get there. And you're going to feel soooo much better, which makes it all worth it. We're here for you. You'll get lots of info and support here. Never hesitate to ask questions
  15. Mission Work In New Orleans Next Week

    Thanks so much for all your good suggestions, everyone. AND for your words of encouragement. As Saturday draws closer, I find myself getting more and more excited about the work I'm about to do. I just hope that it can give some families there some hope themselves. Send good thoughts....
