1. My family is a mix of me, my son, my boyfriend, his daughter, Jared the cat, and really happy fish the fish.....names kids come up for animals :P All gluten eaters thus far.

2. I work 40 hrs a week as a cook at the hospital

3. It's 3 o clock in the morning

4. I got glutened yesterday from a dang Reese's!

So I work a lot at very strenuous job and get to watch people eating all kinds of food I can't eat everyday. I'm over that pretty much. After having a very stressful week with the kids yesterday was my day off and I only had one kid with me so I thought hey I'll have a Reese's and relax today. Heck no! Got glutened and was sick all day! Now I'm up at three o clock in the morning with my dh itching like crazy and can't sleep!!! Outside smoking a cigarette as I write this and thinking about my mom always telling me how bad they are for me.....I know they're bad the whole world knows they're bad! But right now I feel like I can't quit cause I've given up everything for my children and now delicious foods! Sometimes I feel like I want to throw y body I the trash! This disease is so dang hard sometimes!!!!

As I'm reading this I feel sort of ashamed.. :(

Don't get me wrong I LOVE LOVE being a mom and love my family very much just need to get it out to people who understand so well :(

Hopefully u don't all think I'm a terrible person <_<

Sorry you are having a bad time right now, hon!

((hug)) No one thinks you are a terrible person for letting off steam--not at all.

We get to vent on here!! :)

Reese's cups are gluten free.

Your symptoms are not coming from that. Your DH may be flaring from other causes. You might want to look at the threads under DH for some ideas?

You mention you work in food service.....and live with gluten eaters (even the fish probably have gluteny food.)

Those factors are the more likely sources of cross contamination.

Hopefully, your symptoms will subside soon. I know how hard it is to deal with all this.

And yes, you really should quit smoking as it serves no purpose for you to work so hard to get healthy and damage your lungs and heart in the meantime.

But I won't bug you about that too much (nothing worse than an ex-smoker preaching to you! :) ) You will quit when you're ready. One thing at a time.

Hang in there. Hope you feel better soon!

(((hugs))) It sounds like you're really having a tough time right now? I've heard that the holiday PB cups may have gluten cc. Is that what you ate?

It must be awfully hard to work around food and not eat it? Are you sure something didn't "get you" at work? Sometimes symptoms are delayed.

Just trying to help you think..so whatever it was dosn't getcha again.

I'm an ex-smoker so I understand the stress of quitting. I also understand your feelings of being deprived of things..and smoking is just one more thing to add to the list. However, once you've settled into the diet and feeling more sure of yourself..you really should try. :D You knew somebody was gonna nag you on that right? :D LOL

I'm sorry you are feeling bad. As we all told you on your thread about Reeses, they are gluten free. Its possible something else got you - like work or the gluten eaters in your home. Sometimes we can't ever exactly trace the source. Just some crumbs you didn't see, someone used your Peanut butter by mistake, etc.

I think you should continue smoking. A year from now, when you have the gluten thing figured out at your home & work, then you work on quiting.

Have you read the DH threads? Many people say iodine agravates it, especially in the beginning. Alos, some find a little relief with ointments that have a numbing agent in them or Ora-gel (for toothaches) which has the numbing stuff in it.

:D:):lol: you guys are all so amazing! I don't know what I would do without having this place to vent. Today so far is going much better! The itchies have settled down and I'm watching a movie with my little one. Thanks for the hugs :D here's a hug back to all of you!

Sorry you are having a bad day. I hope tomorrow is better. As someone else said, Reeses are gluten free but they do have other triggers in then. So something else in the Reeses could have set off the attack.

I am a smoker too. Right now while I am getting a handle on the gluten free and trying to figure out what else might be causing problems, I am waiting to try and quit. I am tackling one thing at a time.

    • You don't have Turner's Syndrome do you? My niece was diagnosed with celiac disease which later led to a diagnoses of Turner's. There is evidently some sort of connection between the two. They gave her shots of HGH to help her grow because she too was very short.
    • Kim, I tried with those two doctors you mentioned and didn't have much luck at all. They are from the Ohio Liver and GI group. The local support group isn't local and the webpage hasn't been updated in 4 years and it seems that nobody with celiac disease wants to talk about things that help out here in Cinciny. I actually posted a similar plea for help some time ago laryssabeth. I went to the local dietitian that was recommended named Anita Duck but she was no help at all. It was a total waste of money and time in my opinion. She didn't know about cross contamination, parts per million, the different certification organizations and so on. I live in Bellevue, Ky. The so called "local group" that can't be reached actually is in Centerville area almost an hour from me. You both sound local and I'd love to bounce questions off of both of you on things you've tried, successes and failures. What part of town are you two from?
    • A quick perusal of Dr. Brownstein's website outs him quite quickly as a purveyor of pseudoscience. Though he may be an MD, he appears to have abandoned evidence in favour of selling stuff people don't need by making them afraid, using his authority as a doctor. Like all such individuals, what he says has some basis of truth (eg. hypothyroid disorders are quite common, the average North American has a terrible diet), but he twists it to create fear and take advantage of those who are less scientifically literate. Conspiracy theories abound to be found at: http://www.drbrownstein.com/dr-bs-blog/ Here is a criticism of his work: https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/does-your-antivax-doctor-have-another-agenda/
    • Almost 2 years into my diagnosis after losing about 35-40 pounds I have now added about 60 with clean gluten free eating. I also changed jobs which for me has been much more of a physical change, thus needing more calories I have finally been able to put back some pounds. It is possible, for me the clean diet which helped restore my guts let me finally start absorbing the nutrients I was lacking. 
    • Hi Niza, Try to eat lots of protein.  Meats, peanut butter, avocadoes, things like that.  Try to avoid processed (pre-made) foods like frozen pizza, cereals, pot pies, cookies etc.   There gluten-free versions of many of these foods, but they are best saved for later on like 6 months after going gluten-free. If you are just starting out gluten-free, eat a simple diet of mostly foods you make yourself at home.  Also, try not eat eating any dairy (milk, cheese etc) for a couple months.  Oats are also a thing to avoid eating for a couple months.  You may not have any problem with dairy or oats, but some people do. Welcome to the forum Niza!
