Someone asked me that at church the other day.  I'm Celiac.  I was so ticked at the comment that I had to "Bro" the guy up...  My response...  "Bro, I will be on this diet the rest of my life.  What I have, doesn't just go away.  My diet is not a 90 day script from a nurse practitioner at a doc in the box clinic."  

 

Anyway, I know I'm not the first to experience this.  It didn't ruin my day.  I don't feel like a victim.  It just blows my mind that even when you explain this to someone, you may as well speak a foreign language to them and it would be as effective.

"My disease can't be cured, but there ARE cures for ignorance and rudeness. Why don't you look into them?" That would be my reply to this jerk. :angry:

i know it - if their aunt sadie never had it, they don't even pay attention.  even if aunt sadie had it, she didn't follow the diet, so they think "aunt sadie was never that careful - once she felt better, she ate cake!"  and they think it's overkill.  right - it doesn't ruin your day.   lolz - 'bro him up' - i will pay attention next time someone 'bro's" ;)  i sing the for ever song:  "i will be on this diet for ever and ever and ever and ever (deep breath) and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever (another deep breath) and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever <continues on.  you get my point.  they usually run away after that.  hey, barty, write me some tabs lolz  :D

OK, that's TWO reasons you should come to the Black Hills. I'll give you a guitar lesson, and I'll take you to Lintz Brothers for a REALLY good gluten-free pizza. If you need a third reason, it's the scenery. Come on out!

If it makes you feel any better, when I mentioned not eating gluten once, I had a nurse tell me, "Oh, I am so sick of hearing about that fad diet."  I had to respond, "I have Celiac Disease and this is not a fad diet to me."  You would think a nurse would understand a little better than the general public.

i had a nurse practitioner roll her eyes at me when i said my lip gloss had to be gluten free.  then she said "you don't EAT it, do you?"  i said "sometimes.   when i'm reallllll hungry..."  and stared her straight in the face.  she didn't say anything after that............... <_<

Bro, some people...

 

A few weeks ago I was at a new place that had a nice little menu, mostly gluten-free, though there was soy in stuff. I asked about it, saying I was gluten-free and couldn't eat soy. The server (and possibly owner, I think), did know what I could/couldn't have (and even said they could take out any soy for me), but asked: "Oh, are you on a cleanse?" Me: "ahhh, a life-long cleanse, I guess". she: "I bet you have great skin now". Me: "Um, I suppose it might have gotten better..."

The food was great, no problems with it at all, but MAN! I think that's the worst "this is totally a fad diet and great for your complexion" kind of reaction I've gotten from someone.
They did have good gluten-free beer on the menu, so I'll likely be back

 

for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever amen.

After reading the song earlier in the post I keep getting Taylor Swift's We are Never Ever Getting Back Together running through my head but with new words:

 

We will forever, ever be on this diet...
