Finding a Living parnter with a speical diet.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This has probably been addressed many times. But from a personal view point I keep on looking for someone with a similar diet, who can put up with me and my broken self, and we can live together running my cooking side job, and supporting each other. Odd as this might sound I have a non existent understanding of love and more just want a living partner to help support me and I can help. Dating sites have been a miss for years, found a few people and made friends but no one that has this kind of diet or would be willing to stick to it. Dried all kinds of dating meet ups, dating apps, dating sites. even a gluten-free dedicated one to no avail..........

Anyone have any suggestions? Heck perhaps even start a dating or "Looking for room mate/living partner" thread. Just so annoying and drives you crazy being isolated by this diet and lifestyle, in a huge house, stuck talking to your self pacing for hours going slowly insane. Too broke to even go out and do most things or enjoy myself mostly due to medical, and food expenses....

I have aspergers, (think sheldon from big bang theory) Celiac, Ulcerative colitis, supposedly was previously diagnosed with ADHD, OCD, Bipolar, and a few other things but these all calmed down on a gluten-free diet. I have a whole list of allergies and intolerance (check my profile) . I work out daily, 5' 11'' and 128lbs   love watching anime, playing video games in the evening. And I have a obsession with power walking or biking 10-14miles a day. For fun I like going to anime conventions, theme park when I can, working with firearms, cooking, and cosplay.

YES I JUST TRIED A DATING PROFILE

Random rant done, hopefully something good comes of it.

Good for you Ennis. I hope you find someone to appreciate your creativity when it comes to food preparation. I've been on my own for some time now. I don't know if I want to subject someone else to the paranoia of ordering food etc. It's lonely at times but I've gotten used to it a lot more now. :(

We have joked on here that we should get a job at a GI office.  That would give us access to poeple being diagnosed!  Lol   

I think that the best way to meet a life partner is to meet lots of people....or be really lucky.  But, when you meet lots of people, they  know lots of people for you to meet.  Being active in something you enjoy, helps you meet others doing that.  I have known several marriages that met in on-line forums for gaming or such things.  

Maybe you don't need someone to be as restrictive in thier diet as you are? My husband is not gluten-free but willing to eat gluten-free most of the time at home or maintain proper care with his gluteny stuff.  My grown ( mostly) boys eat gluten-free at home, because that is what the cook is making.  My one son has a friend with Celiac - when she wants to eat or cook with him,  they eat gluten-free.

Maybe gluten-free in your home is the only way for you.  But, for other foods, if you think you can't eat "x", does it matter if a roommate eats it?

Yep pretty much I do not care if they eat several things I can not, it is the ones I am trace sensitive to. Gluten, Corn, Dairy, Peanuts are the ones that cc can make me sick. Few of the things I can not eat I love the flavor of, I just can not consume them as they are more of a intolerance. I love cooking with these and getting to try a bit of them before spitting it back out lol. Sounds odd but when you know you can not digest meats, or carbs (beans, rice, potatoes)  correctly but they otherwise do not bother you, or certain seasonings that irritate you, it sorta becomes a guilty pleasure to cut a bit off when cooking for someone set it a side and try just chewing it to taste it before spitting it out.

Not with corn, peanuts, dairy, or gluten obviously, but I can not digest meats, or eat gluten free foods like beans, rice, etc. Those are the ones, Like cook a steak, chicken or fish meal for someone, when done cut off a piece and set it aside and when done with everything I try it myself and chew the meat for awhile tasting the wonderful flavors making sure it is "cooked and seasoned right" before spitting it out knowing I can not really digest it. These are not things that I am trace sensitive to and I cook them gluten, corn, etc free of things I have allergies to. I did this last week cooking up a Mexican rice and bean dish with fajita chicken for my dads shop for a luncheon. I set some of each dish aside and chewed some of it and spat it into the trash can. I could then get to try it, and know I made it PERFECT.   In hindsight and if you watch some chef shows you notice they also tend to do this tasting trick....I think mines a bit more health department approved as I set it aside and carry off to try away from the cooking area.

Wish we were neighbors then me and my husband could help you with your business. But NC and Texas are too far away!

ok now I get it about chewing and spitting. Good idea. All your food always sounds soooo good

    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
