  1. I don't date much at all ...like, really, next to 0. But if/when I ever do, I almost want to require that they have celiac or gluten intolerance too because I just don't want to deal with the BS. Haha. Or maybe at least some kind of chronic condition so they can be sympathetic and non judgemental...
  2. Hello, I understand! People have given you good advice about the roommate thing. Yes you have to go kind of leper-mode when it comes to your food, and you will begin to feel like a leper too (this whole thing can be isolating, sorry to say. Ive been doing it for 10 years and sometimes the heartache...
  3. It is difficult! And cristiana, I know what you mean about other celiacs or gluten intolerants poking holes in our credibility. They'll claim to need to be gluten free but then will go and eat some cookies occasionally. I mean ...I know one who was gluten intolerant (lots of food intolerances actually...
  4. I don't have much encouragement, but at least I can say I know how you feel and I would like to go smack all those people at your party. Lol. I actually experience a lot of anger over the way other people react. My intestinal reactions to gluten ingestion are pretty severe (as are most people's on...
  5. Hanshotfirst, unfortunately I have no solutions. I just want to offer another voice of support to show that I know what you feel like. In some twisted sense it might be "easier" for me in that the pain/sickness was so bad beforehand that I kinda wanted to just jump out a window, so being on the diet...
  6. Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect. I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or...
  7. Aren't dark chocolate milky ways gluten free? I thought so but have been too scared to try. The info should be available somewhere, though. I would avoid them though, personally. Regular Snicker's are gluten free, I eat them with no problem. Not the same as a milky way, but...something, anyway...
  8. Agreed. I have a VERY specific reaction to gluten, that I refer to as my 'gluten attack' which I had abhor and is the reason I go through all this dieting crap to avoid. After it happened so many times in college, I was able to predict the progession down to a 't'. Okay...first this is going to...
  9. This thread is depressing. I guess I'm lucky because the only two times I've been full-blown glutened in the past 3 years were from movie theater popcorn (...I forget what company it was. But it wasn't Regal or Loewe's). And then, from a local cafe that purports to have a gluten-free kitchen...
  10. To the original poster...don't feel bad about being paranoid. That's how one has to be if they wanna stay gluten-free! I'm definitely on the paranoid side with this diet too. It's like, every unknown food is a potential bomb in my digestive system. Don't want that...high alert! Anyway I drink...
  11. Yeah sorry to say I have not found a replacement yet. I love CheezIts, those used to be my favorite junk food kinda snack. No such luck yet. I tried those chedder nut thins too and they are just not the same, lol.
  12. Thanks again! I was just on winter break, and my mom and I did a lot of researching about the gluten-free thing. (Books, lists, calling companies, etc ...). I gave in and started the diet January 8th...so, no turning back now! Lol. I'm ready for things to get better for me though, so. While part...
  13. Hey everyone, thanks for your replies!! I'm pretty busy at the moment to give a good response, but I did read ALL of your input. So, it definetly seems like I should do it. It is worth it both health-wise and feeling-better-wise. And that I should make sure to REALLY do it when I do! It...
  14. Hmm...no lol, I haven't. If that was the case (it being one of those), I wouldn't even know which one to randomly start with! I suppose that's the point of keeping one of those food diaries? That might be a good place to start...
  15. Hi. I've never posted before. Lurked around a little bit before, then came back today. I have ... well let's see. I guess my first and main question is, I notice that once people become gluten-free, their tolerance for ANY gluten becomes a lot worse. Meaning, a lot more susceptible to horrible...
