    Might I suggest: GO GLUTEN FREE. At least in the house. At least for a few months. Make it a safe zone. No temptations, no mistakes, no resentment.

      That’s a tough one Luna. I’ve tried to get my wife and kids to go gluten free for one day, and they just won’t bite.

    Guilt card! “You really don’t love me enough to support me through this difficult time? This is my health we’re talking about.” *sad face*

    :D

    Truly though, mine wouldn’t do it either. And then, several years later, my husband was dx’d with it too. *sigh* He sure felt guilty then. For all the years of cross-contamination. My health improved so dramatically, it was incredible – I had a lot of non-gi symptoms that we hadn’t connected to gluten. When my house became gf, they evaporated.

      It certainly is one fascinating, complex and frustrating disease :(

    I loved this post! My husband has done all these things…well, except for the evil stare. He just doesn’t have it in him. :-) When I kept getting glutened somehow, we made the house a gluten-free zone. He reads, researches, and continues to be my biggest advocate. It can be tough to “defend” the new gluten-free requirements to family and friends when you’re already feeling pretty crummy and trying to recover. I’m just now starting to get a fraction of my normal energy back. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without him. In fact, he found your blog and told me about it, thinking it would be therapeutic given the range of emotions I was feeling. (I was getting pretty tired of the “Celiac made me a better baker” blogs. No offense, but I don’t like to bake and never will.) He was sure right–reading your blog makes me feel empowered! Thanks so much for all that you do for us Celiacs.

      Thanks for the positive feedback Jen! Great to know I’m helping. And yes, my goal was not to be a “celiac is wonderful” blog.
