Trust Your Gut!

Have you ever had a conversation with someone about being gluten free, and in the middle of explaining they look at you like you're crazy and ask how something could possibly contain wheat? I find it happens to me quite frequently.  It's easy for people not living the gluten free lifestyle to view our lifestyle as extreme, however if you have done the research and you know what is proven to be safe for you then you have to trust your gut! in other words never let someone dictate what is safe or unsafe for you to consume.  Only you know your body

and your limitations therefore do not have doubt about what you know.  It can be tricky in some situations due to people not having the knowledge that you do about food, I have been in that predicament many a time.  Every time the house wins! in other words chances are you are in the right and never let people determine what is safe for you. As time goes on it will get easier for you to better assert yourself in this type of situation without feeling doubt, until you have reached a comfort level with being able to properly communicate this to people, take it slow and trust your gut!

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

You're absolutely right - knowing and trusting yourself is the key to success.
