My BF Parents used to have me over for dinner but ever since I was diagnosed havent heard from them it's kinda funny how impatient people are or how ignorant people can be. Having celiac has made me a much more understanding person. Now it's like there is a whole new world and I am not the only one living in it. It's pretty crazy to think of what I did not know a couple of years ago. The one thing I can tell you is it only gets better socially & physically.
