  1. It wouldn't let me do that, but I'll give it another try.
  2. I would like to change my birthdate back to the blank --.--.----. I tried changing it back but I get a message of needing a vaild date. Is there a way around that?
  3. I haven't found your thread about the freezer- how did you get glutened? As for the microwave at college, I took to making everything on the stove. On the plus side, some of the students envied my real food, while they heated up their 5th ramen noodle dinner for the week. hahaha.
  4. Hi Rusia, I am not sure what it smells like, although I think it must be sickening because I have gotten quick, 'WTF' glances in the past. My biggest fear is that it resembles, er, poo. If it helps, my ex-boyfriend has told me that I have had 'sick-breath' as we got to call it, which he described as 'really pretty bad'. for me, I don't know what that was like to be around. He has celiac too, and his sick-breath would remind me of spicy rank sausage (since we're on the body-odor/glutening topic). It's really torturous that neither he nor I can smell these things on ourselves! It would make things easier!
  5. Thank you everyone for your replies! To answer the questions: I have never been officially diagnosed as celiac, but there was such a difference in my health after I went gluten-free that I am sure I am of it anyway. Plus my mom is too, and we both know about the heriditary side of it. I'm going to start a food journal tomorrow, and I'm back to full-time at my job, and for me being ill at work is the absolute worst, so I'm much less likely to slide. I don't feel nearly as meloncholic about the whole situation anymore either, so things are going to work out fine. Thanks again!
  6. wow, no, I had never heard of it. But I have just visited a website and I have most of the symptoms they described! next is figuring out how to treat it. Although, could it be a coincidence that I have 5 or 6 of the eight symptoms? poor stress control, (usually) nervousness (sometimes, usually coinciding with glutening) anxiety (sometimes, coinciding with glutening) mood swings (hmm, yep, a lot, I think) severe inner tension (not sure of this one, maybe that's no) episodic anger (an explosive temper) (depends on amount of stress) poor short-term memory (I can remember fine at work and then will forget wierd stuff when not really concentrating) and depression. (off and on for 10 years, I guess) Most pyrolurics exhibit at least two of these problems. thanks for the tip, gayle. going to do more research. =)
  7. kind of embarassing, but here it is: I am very certain that I emit some kind of smell from my skin if I have been glutened, guaging other people's reactions to me, although no one will come out and tell me. Problem is, I don't always feel glutened when this happens, and I also don't know what exactly what the 'sick' smell is like, since I am completely unaware of it. does anyone else know of this symptom?
  8. I have been gluten free for a number of years now, over five, and I was very strict on the diet for the first 2 years: no gluten, no dairy, no corn, no rice, and no phosphoric acid. All of them would make me sick. After a while I found I could have everything again, except of course gluten, and I started slacking off- candy, mexican food, etc. Last summer I stopped caring nearly so much about being gluten-free. I tried a muffin at my work and didn't get really sick, so the next day I tried a sandwich, and still didn't feel what I used to. To make a long story short, I had a 3 month long binge where I ate wheat almost every day, really BAD things like bagels and bread and wheat-thickened soup. I am now having a really hard time going back to 100% gluten free, and I have much temptation to let the small things slide, like salad dressings, barbeque sauce, etc. My question is: has any one else had such a long binge, and how did you get yourself to care again. I know all the damage I have done to myself, yet that doesn't stop me. Any suggestions or stories? thanks
