Worst celiac reaction I’ve had in my 15 years of having Celiac Disease. This was the first time I actually needed to be hospitalized because I could not stop losing fluids. People need to start treating Celiac the way it needs to be treated so I don’t have to get sick everytime I eat. I’d rather break my femur again than go through the amount of pain I was just in.
Something has to change and it has to change now.

Living in a house of boys that have no compassion and feel no responsibility for their actions for others health…I found a dirty pasta spoon on my counter along with a pot lid that was used to cook that said pasta.
Grrr I bet if it was a peanut allergy they would take it more seriously…wait one of them work in a restaurant, they should know better.
My GLUTEN FREE stickers arrived today! After an intestinal biopsy showed possible celiac, I decided to transition from a wheat-free diet to a strict gluten-free diet. Until now, I have not been careful about cross-contamination in my house, where my messy teenagers cook with wheat. No more! In the past couple of weeks I’ve been cleaning and reorganizing my kitchen, and marking the gluten-free items with blue stickers, tape, or paint. My kids need all the reminders they can get!
I have Celiac Disease also. Which I found out 2 years ago before my MS diagnosis.
It’s not nice when people make fun of gf foods. Most of the time I get irked because when people make fun of the foods I have to eat it comes off as though they’re really making fun of me and that really pisses me off. I usually say something.
Although I don’t typically eat gf food. Because most of the time they’re filled with junk additives. I’m on Paleo which is so much healthier.
Every day I see people making fun of a gluten-free lifestyle. And yet, you don’t see the same for vegan’s or vegetarian’s. Why? Celiac eating gluten-free is not a choice but a must. But eating isn’t the only thing we have to change. I cannot have hair products, make up, etc., that contain gluten, barley or rye. Anything that can seep into my skin, has to be gluten free. I can’t use my favorite shampoo & conditioner, because it has a barley protein, and barley is one of the no no’s.
When I was first diagnosed I had people in my family tell me that it would be okay if I had a little bit of gluten, because it wouldn’t hurt anything and I would only have a little tummy ache. Of course I didn’t listen to them. And a year later, I had to have my gallbladder taken out because of the damage that was done by the gluten I had been eating over the years previous.
When I go to a restaurant and have gluten-free food it is 10 times more expensive than if I would get regular processed crap food.
I have people asking me all the time if they can eat regular food in front of me. I always tell them that it doesn’t bother me. Honestly, in the beginning it did but now I’m so used to it that it doesn’t bother me anymore. I can tell you though that the one thing I miss the most is bread.
The thing that makes me sick is that companies take advantage of people who have celiac. Because we’re under the spectrum in which they think they can charge me an arm and a leg. When I was in California for my birthday this past July, I went to a restaurant and they brought me a dessert in which I couldn’t have. It contained a gram cracker. Don’t even get me started on The Cheesecake Factory. A company that has so many gluten-free foods on their menu, that I’ve gotten so many severe reactions from eating their food. The best place was California Pizza Kitchen, their gf pizza is amazing.
Long story long ha ha. More people should think twice before they start making fun of a gluten-free lifestyle… that’s the point of this.
