Helped My Friend Make Cupcakes... Ugh

My friend needed some serious help making cupcakes. I volunteered because she had no one else and this is a very good friend of mine. We baked regular wheat-containing cupcakes for 5 hours! I made sure not to put my hands in my mouth or breathe too deeply when mixing the flour.

But today I'm sick. I haven't felt this bad in a LONG time. Stupid me for helping, but I didn't think it would make me sick. I really didn't.

:(

I guess I just needed a place to vent to people who understand.

I guess sometimes we do learn the hard way. Personally I wouldn't have done it. Reason why is that some of the gluten you inhale gets stuck on the mucous membranes, some of which you later ingest = gluten exposure. It wouldn't always make you sick if it was only a small exposure, but it's hard to know how much will do it.

That's the same reason why I won't go into bakeries, and wont hang around near them if I can avoid it. I used to work in a bakery and used to come home with a film of flour on me even after just a couple of hours, so I know just how much flour can get in the air when you bake.

Hope you recover from the glutening quickly - you should get credit for glutening from helping out your friend :)

OH yes... she has apologized profusely and thanked me a million times. I have also told her that I won't be able to help her ever again with that sort of thing. She understands. I'm feeling a bit better today. Positive attitude and happy thoughts are pushing me onward.

Thanks for listening. :P

I made regular wheat pancakes once for my family right after I went gluten-free... wasn't good. I understand. However, if memory serves correctly, the effects didn't last as long as they normally do.

Feel better soon!

You can always make the gluten free cupcakes with her using Betty Crocker. Those taste the same as regular cupcakes.
