I don't like to eat grocery store beef because of all the hormones and antibiotics. I LOVE bison though. Well, I just wanted to share my great fortune with you folks. I was talking to a customer whom I hadn't seen in a while. She said she was going to bring me some pork pie because she knows how much I love it.

I had to tell her about my celiac disease and how truly sorry I am that I ca no longer eat her pork pie. It was one of my favorite foods of all time. Anyway, I mentioned that I eat bison when I can afford it, and chicken most days because it is cheap.

She called me yesterday and said she was bringing me a present from an anonymous donor. I THINK she must have mentioned me and my celiac to someone at her church or something. Anyway, long story short, this anonymous person sent me a five pound bison roast, about eight pounds of ground bison, and five packages of bison hot dogs. All organic, all locally grown and "harvested". That is WELL over a hundred dollars worth of meat! Probably over two hundred.

I can't believe how good people are to me! There is barely enough room in my freezer for all of this, and between that and what I already had in there, I won't need to buy meat for two or three months. And because there is so much more nutrition in bison than in chicken, I know I'm going to start feeling better than I do now. (My energy level has been pretty low lately.)

Just when faith in mankind is at its lowest ebb (Connecticut), somebody does something to make me believe in humanity again. Merry Christmas!

I'm not a fan of bison. I ate it for about two years straight and got burnt out. It does, however, have less fat than regular beef and is good in sauces and such.

Good for you :) Its nice when out of no where you are showered with such kindness.

Yeah, it IS shaping up to be a great December for me. There have been some pretty good guitar related things going on too, and I ALSO got a new banjo that a local guy made. Best sounding banjo I have ever played. I'll most likely be spending Christmas alone with my cat, but I'll be eating well and playing my new banjo, so it'll be a great Christmas anyway. :)

Yep. I don't know if, like a lot of forums, we aren't supposed to bring up religion here, but I will say that God has always watched out for me, and through other people like this anonymous donor, He has always given me what I need.

Merry Christmas to you too.

Whenever we are feeling at our lowest, always, always something (or someone) comes our way and renews our faith in humanity.

I always believe in the goodness of people, even when terrible things happen. Good always triumphs evil.

I am delighted for you, Barty! Enjoy, honey--you deserve it. You are always so sweet and kind to others.

And because of your recommendation awhile ago , I eat bison now, too!

Much love and happiness for a blessed Christmas and Healthy New Year, IH xxoo

    • Lanolin to my knowledge is used in skin based applications only, if your needing D3 the best way is to get a sublingual in a dropper you can use there are many available. I personally use Liquid Health and just add it to a drink once or twice a week. https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-95099-liquid-health-vitamin-d3-drops-1000-iu-2-03-oz BTW while your looking Liquid Health also makes a Stress & Energy Supplement, and a Neurological one I swear by. They have many other liquid based formulas if you wish to avoid pills (I already take a bunch anyway for other health issues)
    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating. 
    • Can you tolerate nut milks? I find macadamia milk the gentlest on my stomach. The only brand I've seen here in the US is Milkadamia, and it comes sweetened or not, and fortified with some vitamins. I think this brand is from Australia. Or you could make your own. As for time, it can take awhile, and that seems to be more the norm. A recent new dairy intolerance that peaked May 3 has made me sicker than celiac ever did. Almost 3 months later and I am just starting to get better and my fatigue is improving. I had the usual ups and downs, inadvertent exposures, and trial and error.  I had only mild symptoms (comparitively speaking) at my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago, yet it took 6 months to a year for them to fully resolve after going gluten-free. It's hard to be patient when your GI tract is off, as it makes you feel ill all over.  Just keep doing the right things, introduce new foods one at a time. I would also suggest more protein for weight issues ... can you tolerate tuna? Tuna and some version of mayo? Salmon, vitamin D supplements, and bone broth seemed to have helped me recently with gut healing. Wishing you well...  
    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
