I'm also really sorry to hear that. Hope you are feeling ok.
I thought I would tell you a story which might hopefully make you laugh. I went out for lunch to a pub with my sister and a couple of friends last Summer, and I cooked all my own food to take in my lovely plastic box and lid. So while the others all tucked into their gorgeous looking roast lunches, yorkshire puddings and gravy, I had some boring cold thing which was purely functional!
So then we sat at the outside table at the pub for a little while after lunch and I tried not to watch as they followed up with sticky tofffee puddings and apple pies and cream. I don't think I'd had time to think about bringing dessert as well. But then, at least I knew I wouldn't be glutened and could relax.
Then there was a whip of wind and before I knew it, a plastic bag flew across to our table from the road outside and wrapped itself around my mouth before I had a chance to do anything. Imagine my joy when I realised it was full of breadcrumbs!
Sometimes if you didn't laugh you'd really cry :-)
