  1. I am SO incredibly frustrated right now with one particular skin care company that I may end up screaming. Oh what the heck, I AM going to scream, "AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH"! Well, that was mildly cathartic. So here's the deal. I am the manager at an upscale day spa in the San Francisco Bay Area. We carry three skin care lines and one makeup line in my office. These are both retail and professional lines. The Monday after I was diagnosed I went into work and called the reps for all of the companies we work with. I got an immediate response from the make up rep, and
  2. I have spent the last several days working, taking care of the kids, and helping out with my mother in law who had a mild stroke last Sunday. No jokes about how she is trying to poison me with flour today...it would probably be in poor taste! On a positive note though, I got a package this morning from my mother (she lives in a different state). In it was a liscense plate frame for my car. I almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard. The top part of the frame says "Seitan" and the bottom part says "is evil". The bottom phrase has on both sides a picture of a sheath of wheat in a red
  3. Ah Tuesday...the day of the week that my husband and kids look forward to the most. Why, you may ask? Easy, it is what my son calls their "Gluten Filled Tuesday". This is the day of the week that the three of them go out and eat whatever they want for dinner and do not have to worry if it is safe for me, or if there is anything on the menu I can eat, and to indulge in the things that we just don't get at home anymore. For instance, last week it was deep dish pizza. Tonight, it's Chinese. This is the first of their meals out that I actually find myself envying. I LOVE Chinese food, an

    Ugh! Contamination.

    Let's see, it is 12:30 in the morning and I have to be up and bright eyed and bushy tailed for work tomorrow morning. Why am I up? Because I have stomach cramps that are making me feel like I am about to give birth. Since 7:00 last night. At this point I find myself praying for D...at least then it will get out of my system and the flipping cramps will stop. Went to dinner at a local Vietnamese resteraunt that is one of the few places I have been able to eat at since my dx. Ordered what I always do...shrimp and lemongrass beef over rice noodles (SO yummy!). The shrimp is coated in ri
  5. ...I finally signed up here and have spent the last couple of days trying to figure everything out! The information I have recieved from the posts and blogs have been incredible. Thank you for that everyone! My story, condensed and in a nutshell, is this: I have had digestive problems for probably 11 years or so. Nothing too serious, just the occasional flair up of what I called my "sensitive stomach". Almost 5 years ago I had an attack that lasted for about 4 months. In that time I lost almost 40 pounds and got to the point where I could not leave my house. Even taking the kids to
