Well, I did it all by myself.

Hubs was in the kitchen making his lunch, Chinese generals chicken or something (he's not gluten-free). So he's done and I go in to fix my lunch. As always, I start with wiping down the counters. On one counter, a few pieces of his rice stuff had fallen off his plate so I pick up the few pieces with one hand and continue wiping with the other and throw out the papertowels.

I get all my salad stuff together and make my lunch. Greens were washed earlier in the day so no need to rinse them. Ten minutes after I finish, I start shaking and feeling flushed. I lay down and the tummy starts to get angry and I'm bloating in front of my eyes. Then, of course, the migraine.

Where did I go wrong? Those fingers that picked up the few pieces of rice? Yup. I forgot to wash my hands. That little bit of residue from his Chinese got me. And since my greens had already been washed, the residue stayed on my fingers.

I forgot one little step in my preparation and am paying for it.

Moral of the story, don't let Hubs eat Chinese food? Nope, wash your hands every step of the way.

aw, crappers!!! <_<

well, having "gotten got" (really stretching the grammar rules here :lol: )

a few times myself the past 2 years, despite my uber-carefulness, I can only suggest this:

I drink a lot of water, take digestive enzymes, probiotics and rest. (I also say a few choice swear words)

Sorry, babes. Hope it passes quickly. xx

I giggled. Not funny that you aren't feeling well, but generally that is what happens with getting got for a lot of people. Feel better soon.

My personal policy is that if I'm not washing my hands to the point that I need to go through a metric buttload of lotion to keep from cracking and bleeding, I'm not washing my hands enough.

    • I have read that article.  While, true, testing for antibodies seems to be better than nothing.  I have read the DGP may be better for monitoring the gluten free diet, but who knows if that is still true or not?  Endoscopies are invasive and not cost effective for constant follow-up care.   I would like to see more studies about healing outcomes for celiac disease.  Most information is based on clinical observation and just plain guessing.  While my hubby can take a hit that lasts a week, I go down for months!  I am assuming that there are variations of celiac disease, like diabetes.  You just have to find what works for you as an individual.  Follow the basic gluten free diet, but modify it for your personal level of sensitivity and accompanying food intolerances.  I wish there was a meter for my sensitivity.  I can sure identify which carbohydrates can spike my blood sugar.  Those carbohydrates that affect me do not necessarily affect other diabetics.   I am approaching five years of being gluten free.   I am constantly debating on whether I should get another endoscopy.  (My GI just said to email him directly and he'll squeeze me in within days).   But what will the results reveal?  That I keep making mistakes, am getting cross contamination from hidden sources, that I have refractory celiac disease or lymphoma or I am doing a good job?  I have chosen to move forward, stick to the diet and just simply live and enjoy my life.    Of course I say this after coming down from a six month bad stretch (tooth infection, flu, colds, daily hives, antibodies raised for both Hashi's and DGP).  Life has been good for the past month despite my family's crazy schedule.  I am going to take it!  
    • I'm glad the team found a way for the subject of the article to remain involved with the team as a manager. The young man has been through a lot in life. "Developed celiac" one wonders based on his early life medical challenges if celiac may be present in utero. And complications could have occurred as a mom would eat  a regular gluten containing diet . I was undiagnosed during my Family birthing years.  I have wondered if being undiagnosed and unknowingly consuming gluten negatively impacted my pregnancies, labors, deliveries, and the other issues my children experienced. I was not typical/average OB/Gyn  patient.  I believe I know the answer and I try to accept -with cliches of  it is what it is- and hindsight is 20/20 etc.  I'm glad he is thriving and not missing a beat as he ages and follows his gluten-free diet.
    • This sounds so much like my daughter's behavior before she was diagnosed with Celiac's in 2nd grade. My heart breaks for you...it is not easy. However, if it is the extreme stomach discomfort that is causing her behavior issues, there is a prescription drug for intestinal cramping called Dicyclomine. It can be given as needed for such emergencies.  We have also found that probiotics given regularly lessen the symptoms when she is accidentally glutened. Good news: Our daughter is 18 now, and succeeding very well in college.  A word of warning though if your daughter is that sensitive (from factory contamination): Be aware of all of the prescription and OTC drugs, make-up, shampoos, hairspray, lotions, etc.. that contain gluten, since they are not required to label products. I just recently discovered that some retainers given out by orthodontist leech gluten too. 
    • Yes I know you are correct I just think I'm in denial and that it could lead to worse issues.  In my head I keep thinking if I never went to the doctor for the mysterious rash I never would have known I had celiacs to begin with and would still be eating those Foods.  Stupid I know I'm just having a hard time with this especially since I don't like a lot of foods that are gluten-free naturally
    •   Oooo if I had "mild celiac" I will admit it -I'm not grabbing for a cc crepe - I'm grabbing a cc gluten-free pizza and gluten-free bagel! All in good sarcasm -my antibodies are still patrolling since 2016 challenge it doesn't even care for the gluten-free baked goods I make here at home. It wants only whole  foods minus strawberries this month. I surprisingly have never cared for oats prior to gluten-free and in past when gluten eating. ...and yes without this site ,the knowledgeable people here, and post challenge experience - it would be possible  to believe the smoke and mirror sales job On the crepes are fine for "mild celiacs ". As I visited here as a guest while suspecting but never knowing if I was a celiac.  Joining as a member and following some members with symptoms/intolerances  like me etc. or ones who have great personalities - showed me that mainstream celiac info / publishing / articles are very sparse, contradictary, or less than transparent versus exploring the trenches of celiac.com  🤔
