  1. Yes! use a different cookie sheet that is only for gluten free! And make sure eveything else she bakes with and uses to touch your food is throughly cleaned before she starts with the gluten-free stuff
  2. Always bring something, be it something you bring just for yourself or something to share with everyone. I would agree-eating a big dinner beforehand is always a good idae to make sure you aren't hungry at the start of the event, but have fun and don't worry about the food if you don't have to-make sure you have options and a most time fruit and veggies can be safe and those are usually staples at parties, just be careful about the dip (I would advise against using it).
  3. Yes, celiac3270 and I both live in Boston now, but he's finishing up his first semester of senior year at Harvard, so he's been working a lot so we haven't had time to hang out, but still keep in touch and will see each other soon! Yes I graduated, degree in chemistry (I don't really know how I did it), I'm taking some time off enjoying life before applying to medical and PHD schools for graduate work, so hopefully starting one of those in the next few years!
  4. From the middle of my Freshmen year of high school to almost the end of my Senior year of high school I was corn free (along with gluten free--have been since I was 2 yrs old), corn is MUCH harder to cut out than gluten, but it can be done. I would suggest doing the corn and gluten free thing for a while, then slowly start trying small amounts of corn (for me it was non-processed corn on the cob that I had for a while before being able to eat any sort of processed corn products). The big problem with corn is HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) and other corn syrups that are in most processed foods. I would suggest doing meats, veggies, rice, potatoes, beans, fruits etc. for the time being, it's going to be a lot of cooking but it'll give your intestines time to heal before you start introducing more of the processed foods that could be causing you problems. Good Luck!
  5. The 2 things I learned when I was diagnosed (at 20 months old), so really the 2 things my mom taught me when I was young are 1. never be too nice 2. always carry rice cakes I'm 22 now, I still have a bag of ricecakes in every bag I have, along with a protein bar and such for the moments where I don't feel comfortable eating what is being served.
  6. I honestly wouldn't take the risk. I am very sensitive, even though no skin reactions or anything you don't really notice how many times you touch your face during the day, and then picking up food and stuff it MAY get into your digestive tract, it's not likely, but it is your wedding day-so I would go with I would rather be safe than sorry (also congratulations on getting married!). What I would suggest is for whoever is doing your hair/makeup just let them bring what they usually use, but you yourself bring backups just in case (really for the lip stuff and things going on your face) just to make sure in case you don't feel comfortable using what they bring you will have a backup. Have a great day!
  7. I'm stopping by to say HI for the first time in forever, so hi to everyone I miss talking to :-)
  8. It could be a lot of different things but for some short term relief I would ask your doctor about sublingual Zofran, it's the antinausea medicine that he/she may have prescribed for you but it'll dissolve under your tongue instead of you having to swallow it, it'll enter your bloodstream and since it's not entering your GI system should actually help with some of your symptoms (when I'm in the same place that you are the meds I take I just throw them back up...) It is possible it is just an AWFUL reaction to gluten (I've had ones like this that last up to 2 weeks...) but it's good that you are seeing a GI doc. Hope you start feeling better soon!!
  9. Hey guys, So about once a year I come back on here to post an update for the newbies and such to say that it is possible to be gluten free as a teenage, as a college student, and as a person for 20 years. Today is my 20th anniversary of my "diagnosis day" as my parents call it, and I'm happy to say that I've been doing great (about to graduate from college with a bachelor of science in Chemistry), and have never once consciously cheated on my gluten free diet. To all of you out there who are suffering with teh diet changes and such, it can be done! and it's so much better for you guys now that it was when I was diagnosed, the only company out there that did gluten-free was Ener-g. I hope everyone I used to interact with out here are doing well, and welcome to all the new members on this message board. 20 years seems like a long time! -Molly
  10. Hey guys, I'm going to be going to the World Series this weekend (WOO) in Arlington, and I'm gonna need food, I'm staying in a small hotel place I think and I have NO idea where I should start for getting food, I'm only gonna be there for 2.5 days so it doesn't have to be much but I'm not gonna be eating in the stadium if I can manage it. Any suggestions?
  11. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/26184891/vp/38769921#38769921 Unfortunately, while they are talking about Celiac Disease (which is always good), the doctor however says that people who are diagnosed (actually and don't just go on the diet for fun...) could possibly reintroduce gluten into their diet, which is UNTRUE.
  12. Thanks guys! maybe just maybe i'll pop my head in here a few more times a year when i have some more free time...
  13. I take centrum and they say on their website that it's gluten free
  14. Yeah I know it's been crazy, organic chem has literally taken over my life this year...
