kjk added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsUnbelieversCan anyone give me some advice on what to say to friends and family who think you are a little bit crazy because you avoid eating gluten? My Chinese Herbalist suggested I have DH and I'm positive she's right. I don't want to have the official tests done - they seem like a waste of time and money for an inconclusive result. So, I'm trying to follow a gluten free diet (although the hidden gluten and CC is causing me trouble). My motherinlaw gave me a doubting look and asked me if I was sure that I wasn't just going through menopause? My brotherinlaw asked what proof did I have? and why has this suddenly happened? If I mention celiac and can just feel them sniggering. And these are people who are supposed to be my "loved ones". I just feel like I want to crawl into a box somewhere and hide.
