What does a celiac dream about while they are sleeping?
Well I can't tell you in general, but I can tell you what this celiac dreams about.
These dreams have happened on several occasions, leaving me distraught and feeling just a little bit silly.
I've had a dream that I was eating a piece a cake or a muffin and then while chewing, I would somehow realize or be told that it was wheat! I would spit it out and then worry about what reaction I might have. Then I would wake up and think "well that was weird......"
So, that's never actually happened to me - ever - nor do I see how it would since we only eat things at home (we don't eat out or eat packaged prepared foods).
Am I the only one who dreams about this? Probably.
But, at least I have a husband who appreciates my kookyness and a daughter that only sometimes rolls her eyes when I break out into opera singing.
Yeah, I'm a lucky gal... tormented by dreams of gluten.
The upside is that I've seemed to have stopped having dreams about forgetting an exam and not showing up or somehow forgetting that I registered for a class and then finding out at the end of the semester. Again, none of those things ever happened.. but that's just a piece of my crazy subconsciousness!
I started having those dreams long after I graduated from college too. What does that mean?
Probably that I have an obsessive compulsive disorder about worrying.
Okay, I actually do... but I'm working on it.
Am I really the only one who has dreamed about accidentally eating something that I'm not supposed to? Share!
