so I wanted to ask everyone what their journey with gluten-free has been like. Personally, I have been gluten-free since the age of 6 (1999, when celiac hadn't gone mainstream yet), due to a wheat allergy, so I've pretty much lived my whole life with it, and it's not really that big of a deal. My friends understand what I can and can't eat (most of the time) and I've become good at creating my own meals (since pre-made gluten-free can be EXPENSIVE). I'm in college, but I live at home. That comes with its own set of problems, right? So, basically I'm wondering,
1. Are you G sensitive, or Celiac?
2. What's your gluten-free story, has it been frustrating, easy, expensive, scary, funny...?
3. Do you think that being gluten-free make you unique, does it define you as an individual?
4. What do you think needs to happen in the gluten-free and non-gluten-free communities/industries to help us all out?
