I've been gluten-free for under a month and I've been doing pretty well. I'm probably not as vigilant about CC as I should be, but I'm getting there. The longer I'm gluten-free, the more in tune I am with my symtoms. Anyway, I just had to share my dumb girl moment from last night. I've been trying different gluten-free Brownie mixes for a few weeks. My bf is a huge dessert eater so I thought if I could find something we could both eat that would be great! But, unfortunately, they all have a funky aftertaste and he won't eat them. Well, he's been so wonderful about all this with me, that I made him the real ones last night. Washed my hands like crazy, cleaned the counters afterwards. Dumb moment happened when I took them out of the oven and used a toothpick to check that they were done. Inserted toothpick and then out of habit, stuck the darn thing in my mouth! I spit it out instantly and just had to laugh at myself for being so absent minded. It's amazing how something so small could quite possibly cause big problems. I feel ok today thank goodness...hopefully that will continue. Happy Tuesday everyone!

You are not alone. I have done things like that before -- licked my finger after making the kids sandwiches, and such.

There is a really great recipe for brownies on here....I wish I could remember the post. But you message me, I'll send it when I get home (the message will remind me!). It is excellent, and NO ONE will know it's gluten free. It is amazing.

I am certain we all make mistakes like that one. Currently I'm kicking myself for letting someone else do the grocery shopping.

Like everyone else, we've all had a moment like that. Mine was making my family pasta in one pan and gluten-free pasta in another one and out of habit I tossed a noodle in my mouth to see if it was done. Now I tell my family if they want to make sure their pasta is done, they better be in the kitchen with me when I make it. Of course, my oldest daughter wants to toss the noodle to see if it sticks to the ceiling. Thats not going to happen! Always an adventure!

Good Luck! Tammy

Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt....lol.

BTW....Betty crocker has gluten free mixes and they have a brownie mix. I tried the expensive gluten free brownie things and hated the after taste too. I have not tried the BC brownie mix but I have tried the cake mix and the cookie mix and both were very good with no yucky after taste :)

I've done this also. Mine was pasta. Cooked the "real" stuff for my family and just absently put a noodle in my mouth to see if it was done. :blink: -- Another time it was just me and the kids for dinner. Dh was traveling. It was cold and rainy so I said how about grilled cheese and tomato soup. I got out the big pan, the one that fits three grilled cheese at once and started making three! oy... They were already in the pan when it dawned on me that of course I couldn't eat one! sheesh... Thankfully my ds is a teenage boy so he just ate two. :lol: -- And yet another time I was going to eat the last bits of the Kentucky Fried Chicken mac and cheese.

Lol... after awhile it does get easier. :rolleyes:

    • Thanks for all the input guys. Yeah I've had the vit/min panels and all that done and it was all normal. Regardless I've been supplementing with 1,000mcg sublingual B12 daily, 5,000iu sublingual D3 every few days, and since going keto, "ketovitals" which gives me some magnesium, potassium, sodium, and calcium. Also douse everything in pink sea salt and drink a ton of water. For months now I've tended to get at LEAST 10 hours of sleep per night... Usually. I still at times have terrible insomnia, which is what happened the other night, then had to get up early. Got a total of maybe 5 hours and still feeling it now 2 days later despite sleeping closer to 14 hours a night since. So Ennis, you mentioned about lectins, which I'm now reading about, and interestingly, certain things I don't do well with (usually uncooked veggies, aside from onions) seem to correspond to this. I even do fine with peas, but, I cook those. I'll have to start experimenting. The only part that gets me is that I'm reading grain-fed meats are high in lectins. I've read before that the supposed grain/grass fed difference is BS, and in fact the one thing that has never let me down through all of this is chicken, and I just buy the regular stuff for that. Can anyone confirm or debunk?
    • At 6. Months I was still recuperating for sure. Still had the dh but less of it, still had chronic pain in my abdomen but less of it, still constipated. I was in the stage of eating gluten-free processed foods, which was too much gluten for me, and keeping my symptoms active. In all actuality my C stopped a few months ago. I've been gluten-free for almost 10 years now.
    • 6 months for me stuff was still iffy. I was having bad days good days wtf days. Seemed like ANY change and my body threw a tantrum like a little kid. Yeah sleep patterns lol. I STILL CAN not change them I HAVE to go to bed at a certain time and WAKE at a certain time (9pm-4am)or my cycle goes all out of wack (also take a mid afternoon nap) , the entire day becomes ruined. Meals are the same way. There is this like 30-60mins window if I miss this shot my body goes all kinds of wonky. Mostly it become anemic and my got shuts down and constipation sets in. Always have to have hot fluids or this happens also.....no more cold drinks lol.

      EVEN if your levels are fine, supplementing is something many of us HAVE to do. For me I do not feel "Normal" unless I take my B-vitamins etc. Heck if i miss my magnesium supplement I block up, stop stomach emptying, get cramps, and generally vomit after day 2 if I eat anything. Supplementing is the new "Normal" for me.

      Still to this day food diary shows ups and downs with certain foods, I can not eat many foods, and others HAVE to be prepared in a certain way. heck up until recently I assumed it was a histamine issue or mast cell. Then I found some high histamine foods that should did not bother me go figure, then learned of something called Lectins and my prep methods that work with foods.....corresponds to lowering lectin content.....yeah SO I might have solved that mystery but am experimenting with it still.

      Health wise I am now doing much better and after 4 years found that "Perfect" diet plan for my body (at least for now). Putting on weight,  and trying to body build, still seems to yoyo with ups and days but less now.
    • Sorry to hear you are still suffering so. Have you had a vitamin and mineral panel done?  You should at least have your B12 levels checked. If they are not over 500 then try a subligual B12. That might help a bit.  I take a Stress B supplement but was able to drop the B12 after about 5 years. I know how hard it is to stick to a very regimented schedule as far as sleep goes. I suffer greatly if I don't retire and get up at the same time every day. I am trying to adjust my schedule a bit right now and paying for it. I have been going to sleep at 8pm and getting up at 4am now for a long time which cuts out any real social life.  The last few days I have stayed up till 9:30 or so and gotten up at 5:30 with a headache and generally feeling lousy.  I started getting up very early a few years ago so that I would still get enough sleep even if I have to be somewhere earlier than normal.  Is it possible to adjust your sleep schedule so that if needed you can be somewhere early and not have it mess up your system?  I try to wake at least 3 to 4 hours before I leave the house. It is amazing how much you can get done and how relaxed your beginning day is when you don't have to worry about having to get up early to accomodate an unusually early obligation. Please don't get discouraged. It can take a very long time to heal but for many of us we were ill for years before we finally got diagnosed. I hope you see more progress soon. Be patient with yourself as there are no instant fixes for us, unfortunately.
