  1. I have (had?) problems with bananas too. Not crippling stomach pain, but a serious belly ache that makes me nauseous and thinking I'd feel better if I just threw up (TMI sorry). I can eat them baked in things or fried with no problems. I kind of wonder if this problem may have been fixed after almost 3 years of being gluten free. I haven't been brave enough to try.
  2. I am so sorry that you are ill, but I do want to point something out here. YOU need to take personal responsibility also. You said in your post that BRM gluten-free Oats have made you ill in the past, so common sense would say that you should take the time to ask for a list of ingredients before eating anything, or take the risk and possibly have a reaction. If this bakery is catering to a gluten free crowd, I would bet that they would be perfectly happy to provide you with an ingredient list so that you can make an informed decision. I understand about being excited about trying a new place or product, but if you get so excited that you forget to ask about ingredients, then it's not fair to blame the bakery. The reminder to be careful is a good one, but personal responsibility has to come in to play here. I hope you recover soon. It sucks to be sick from your food.
  3. I use Udi's whole grain bread as I've never found anything that was like a "real" burger bun that was gluten free. As soon as the burgers are done, I assemble everything, then butter the outsides of the bread and throw the whole thing in a skillet for a couple minutes on each side (think grilled cheese) - YUMMY patty melt style!
  4. North Of Dallas In Murphy

    Thanks for posting this!! I will have to go try it out one of these days!
  5. Funny You Don't Look Sick?

    I hope not too! Please let them know that if they need any help, I would be willing - whether it be just ideas or actual labor in getting the place set up!
  6. Funny You Don't Look Sick?

    Actually, I have never been to a PF Chang's either! LOL Been dying to try it, but the hubby isn't fond of the place, so I've never been. We should go!
  7. Funny You Don't Look Sick?

    Nor_TX I'm sorry your coworkers are so insensitive! I DO live in north Dallas, so if you ever want to go grab lunch or something, just holler. I don't participate on the boards here much anymore but I do still lurk. Kareng - please do let us know about the new restaurant! I would frequent it for sure!
  8. Progresso Soups

    celiackitcat - try Funyons for a topping. Those french fried onions are not gluten free. I used the Funyons last year (my 1st gluten-free Thanksgiving) and no one knew the difference. Can I be the first in line for one of your care packages? I cannot find that dang soup anywhere down here.
  9. If Whole Foods can't (or won't) get it for you, you can order direct. Udi's Foods e-Store
  10. Is it joint pain? I got this too, just before going gluten free. It started in my pinky on my right hand, and then spread to my ring finger, and then into my middle finger. Once in a while my entire right arm will ache - feels-like-my-bones-are-about-to-explode aching. And the pain will radiate down into my thumb too. But only in my right hand/arm with any consistency. Once in a great while, my left side will ache, but nothing like the pain I feel on the right. I had xrays done by a chiropractor (he said he would be able to tell if it was RA on an xray) and they said it looked like the beginning of osteoarthritis. I started taking glucosamine-condroitin, and in just a couple of short weeks, the pain is better. Not gone, but better. Hope you can figure it out and get it solved soon!
  11. Good to know! I tried their blueberry muffins and they were to die for! I had wondered about the bread. Thanks for posting!
  12. If you can get your doc to test hormones (or find a doc that will), it would be worth it to have them checked out. The chiropractor that I work for said this: Now I don't know that I believe that I'd have NO PMS symptoms if everything was perfectly balanced, but I certainly DO believe that my PMS symptoms would be less extreme. Unfortunately, I have other things going on in addition to the progesterone/testosterone deficiencies that need some serious attention also.
  13. Or a sign of estrogen dominance. I used to get this a few days before my period starting. Now, it seems to start a solid two weeks prior. I have recently been found to be progesterone and testosterone deficient. Might want to have hormones checked.
  14. Getting A Collee Degree When Sick

    ranger, From what I read, yes there is, but you do have to meet certain course load requirements for different types of financial aid. To get specifics, it would probably be best to contact the school.

    And just to add this for anyone that is interested.......it takes a little bit to find it when searching on your own. http://www.snl.depaul.edu/StudentResources...lness/index.asp Cyberprof, if you have any additional resources, I would love to hear about them. Feel free to PM me if you'd rather. Thanks for posting this!
