  1. I've tried the Betty Crocker mixes, and wasn't impressed. I don't know about anyone else, but in my area they are more expensive than the all-natural gluten-free cake mixes I buy at health food stores. I can't understand why they're so costly.
  2. Ditto! When enough people tell you it's all in your head, and doctors act like nothing is wrong, it's easy to start believing it. I don't think anything I do will make my parents have an ounce of understanding about celiacs. They have always been unsympathetic people, and let me know from an...
  3. Is this the same doctor who told you that you can eat European wheat? Did you get an official diagnosis from an MD, or just this test from an acupuncturist? An acupuncturist wouldn't be able to diagnose celiac, so it could be that you're reacting to something entirely different, such as an environmental...
  4. I can't stand it when a doctor doesn't listen. The doctor-before-last let me ramble on about my problems, and didn't take in a word of it. Doc "How have you been feeling?" Me "Well, I have diarrhea every single day, my migraines are getting more frequent, and the anxiety is still crippling...
  5. It could be CC. How do you buy your quinoa? Do you get it out of those bins by the pound? There could be CC with the bins and the scoops. I tried some quinoa couscous a few months ago, and it caused all kinds of reactions. But I've also had quinoa pasta with no reaction. The couscous didn't have...
  6. I tried two different antidepressants (first paxil, then celexa) a couple of years ago, and the side effects were worse than the anxiety/depression. I was already having problems with diarrhea, but on these medications it never stopped. There was also awful insomnia, and couldn't sleep more than...
  7. About ten years ago my periods became really erratic. My old doctor put me on the pill as a way to even them out, and it worked, but she never bothered to figure out what was causing the problems. I wouldn't have a period for months, and then I'd have two in a single month. There was no rhyme or...
  8. I've only been gluten-free for four months, and got glutened for the first time a few weeks ago. The symptoms definitely felt worse than I had previously felt on gluten, but it could just be that I used to feel ill every day so it was normal, and my new normal is so much healthier in comparison....
  9. Yesterday was sweet & sour pork with stir fried veggies. Gluten-free sweet & sour sauce (can't remember the brand name), added chopped pineapple and onion, simmered on the stove Pork cut into cubes, dipped in egg, rolled in corn starch, and then fried in a wok until golden brown Celery...
