Hi and welcome to the team.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Hi, I am gluten free, lactose free and a kidney transplant patient. So salt and fried foods are out as well as anything with any kind of sausage. I went to a party on Wednesday night where everyone brought a dish. I made potato salad so I knew I had that to eat. With all the dishes there (and there were tons), all I could eat was my salad, some baked beans and another salad. Everything else had macaroni of some sort in it and all the desserts were out. I have been doing this for about 2 years now and just prepare for it. I don't feel dumb because this is a medical condition and I can't help it. One of the gals is allergic to chicken and she made an announcement (any of this food contain chicken or chicken broth?) Everyone asked questions about her allergy and learned something. Please don't feel dumb and educate your family about being gluten free and lactose free. It is inherited and maybe some of them have the problem too! Judi emoticon emoticon

Thanking God everyday!

Hello!
I am relatively newer to gluten free eating after trying for many years to nail down what was causing all my weird medical symptoms. After telling a doc, we discovered I had a pretty good list of things pointing to gluten- achey joints, brain fog, really bad mood swings (which my dear SO has coined being a g-head) headaches, and muscle spasms, along with stomach pain.
I am also dairy intolerant, so I've been a bit challenged with going out, family functions, that sort of thing.
I was wondering what any of you have found to help make family functions/social functions go easier? I end up feeling dumb or that I'm a pain. I dont want to have to question every dish made or make it uncomfortable for any of my family members:( What's an easy way to feel included without feeling pressured to eat things that I know will cause me issues? I am newly engaged, so I want to be part of my new family but I'm not sure how to handle this.
Thank you for any advice!!!
