Keep Your Hands Off My Glass!

We went out to dinner tonight at a place where we dine a couple of times a month. They don't have a gluten-free menu but they can make a plain chicken breast for my daughter and she gets it on a taco salad minus the dairy. They don't put their salad in the big flour tortilla bowl. Instead it comes with chips.

So they we were, when all of a sudden her dad started putting his hands all over her glass! Why? Who knows. He was eating a burger on a bun.

She got really mad at him and told him to keep his wheaty hands off of her glass. She was diagnosed just over 7 years ago and he still doesn't get it. *sigh*

The last time I ate out I noticed the waiter handed out bread baskets then brought our water glasses.....handed the glass to me...with palm over the top of the glass....and fingertips touching where I would be drinking from. ARRRGH! I thought...can that put gluten in me? Paranoid of trace gluten...just not worth it to me. I didn't drink the water...

Sorry her dad did that! But she is right and I'm glad she spoke up.

Keep your wheaty hands off my glass!! Good for her!

Because I used to waitress, I am a very critical customer. And this is my pet peeve! I KNOW that a server's hands have been handling money and dirty napkins, as well as gluten filled products. If a server brings my drink that way, I politely point that out to them, then ask for a new drink. Even then, I always use a straw.

I'm trying to imagine why someone would do something like that. Was he trying to be funny? Good for her for standing up for herself!

With him? Who knows. He does all sorts of things he shouldn't do or that make no sense.

Once when we were first married I went to his grandma's house for Christmas Eve dinner. His family is Italian and the tradition is that all the women gather together to make the dinner. I had offered to help but was told I could not. I did help prepare some things in advance at his parent's house. They do use specific recipes and his mom hovered over me to make sure I did things right. Alas she gave me the wrong peppers for stuffing. His dad grew them and later pickled them. He grew two kinds. Sweet and hot.

So there I was, cutting the ends off of these little round peppers and taking out the seeds like she told me to. But my hands were on fire! She wound up getting really mad at me. I was almost in tears. I ran out and stuck my hands in the snow trying to cool them. I know now that isn't the thing to do. And after she took over the job after getting really angry with me, she apologized. Now her hands were on fire.

I tried soaking my hands in milk and even putting butter on them and wiping it off. Nothing would take the burning away for two whole days.

So then we went to the family dinner. I drink diet soda and only diet soda. I can't stand regular soda never could. And now I am diabetic so it isn't even an option. I already knew that his family only ever had regular soda with their meals. So I brought my own can of diet soda.

His mom announced that she had used the wrong peppers for the stuffed peppers and to eat them with caution because they were really hot. Well... He wasn't listing to her. Took a ton of the peppers and stuffed his mouth with them. Then his mouth was on fire. And he had consumed all of his drink. There were two 2 liter containers of soda sitting right behind him. He could have easily refilled his glass. But instead, he took my can and drank it all. I was horrified. He didn't even ask! And there I was, left with nothing to drink. We were eating in the basement. There was no faucet down there. No water. Just the regular soda.

He does have ADHD. So that may be the reason why he does the sorts of things that he does. But it is greatly annoying!

    • I think that if you soaked in the paddle in vinegar and scrubbed it a few times, you will be fine.  But if in doubt, just set the mixer aside for a while until your family's health has improved.  In the meantime, use your arm to mix dough!  My grandma never had a mixer!   I bought a bunch of new stuff because I had been married for 25 years when diagnosed.  It was time for new things!   Everyone is different in their response to gluten.  Science has given us a good estimate, but we know that nothing is "one size fits all".  You just have to figure out what is best for you and your family.   My anemia resolved within months of being gluten free (ferritin levels).  I still have Thalassemia, but it is mild and my body has adapted.  It is most likely the one reason that I never made the Olympic team!  😆 BTW, family and friends are not allowed to bring in gluten into our house with the exception of beer.  They can contribute to a potluck by bringing beverages, uncut fruit and veggies, new condiments, tableware, and ice cream ......etc.
    • Thank you so much. It's so nice to have such friendly and helpful people to talk to while I await my answers.  I had an interesting experience yesterday... I ate a bowl of Kraft mac n cheese... then passed out for 4 hours and woke up vomiting. I've had a lot of experiences like that after eating over the past 2 years, but I never put those pieces together because celiac disease was totally off my radar. Just found it very interesting.  I've been pushing down lots of gluten-y foods just to make sure my tests will come out right. So tired of waiting! Really, if this isn't the answer to my 40 lb mysterious weight loss, fatigue, and painful gas/bloating... then what's left? Cancer doesn't seem likely in a 33 year old, but I am really scared.  Thanks for helping me through this. Anyone who stumbles accross this place is lucky to find such supportive and kind, helpful people!
    • Hello and welcome I don't have an answer, like you I'm eating rice in processed foods as well as a side dish so I'm also wondering if I'm eating too much. If the rice is in a product like flour there's no way to tell how its prepared etc However for this: You can pre soak and rinse the rice in advance and change the way you cook it to reduce your exposure by up to 80% Details: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2F1MDzyW55pg97Tdpp7gqLN/should-i-be-concerned-about-arsenic-in-my-rice    
    • I use almond, and coconut a lot now my bakery used to use oat and almond blends. We never used rice, or starches as our goal was to keep it low glycemic. Now days we are transitioning to cut out oats. I started having....ok I omitted and gave in after being in denial a similar reaction to oats (10% of celiacs do if I recall) over a year ago. Anyway as for flour blends premade avoiding rice and grains try simple mills at https://www.simplemills.com/collections/all I have composed a huge list of various gluten-free goods here, even recently updated with grain free, and pizza section https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hello Everyone, New here and have joined because I couldn't find an answer to my question online. I was diagnosed after a long spell with anemia in 2015 and have been on the diet (and improving!) ever since. But I wonder whether how much rice I'm eating is very healthy. I have always liked to bake and it took awhile to find a flour mix I like (Cup 4 Cup - worth its weight in gold...), but a lot of gluten-free food subs in rice (white rice, brown rice, rice flour) plus I eat actual rice as a side dish. Is this too much? Keep in mind, I also eat salads like it's my job and love making vegetable soups too. Any advice on gluten-free foods (specifically flours) that don't fall back on rice as a substitute? I should add that I can't really get excited about quinoa, despite my best efforts. Thanks in advance.
