Hello everyone...

I am glad to have found this site. Just want to say my heart goes out to ALL struggling with food allergies (your children too). My sympathy is given to those who have lost loved ones...

I have been diagnosed with Celiac and Lupus-2 auto immune disorders!
I have developed a SEVERE allergy to wheat and SLS (sodium lauryl sulfates) in the last year. I am 53 and the doctor said it was from years of heavy stress in my life.

I basically swell up and break out in hives when coming in contact with anything containing wheat or SLS. It has been horrible...I do not know I will get back into the work world or visit people!? I found this out when my sister ordered a pizza and BOOM I began to itch and swell immediately! Most EVERYTHING contains wheat (even make up and shampoo) and SLS (bathing products,dish soap, shampoo).

I have been a detective trying to work my life around this. I even found colorful cloth face masks that block allergens!!!

My life has completely changed!

Anyone suffering and diagnosed recently? How do you cope with life???

Thank you
