When I was 17 I had my first boyfriend and subsequent gutting break up etc etc. He was a Coeliac, so I learned a lot about the lifestyle while we were together. And harboured a resentment towards gluten-free food for a few years afterwards!

Fast forward five years and to my complete surprise (when the doctor suggested testing me for it I laughed at him) and I've been diagnosed with it. Which is actually not too much of a problem. I'm just pissed that now five years later I feel as though we have something in common that's unique to us among our friendship groups and it's very tempting to get back in touch to chat about it because he's the only other Coeliac I know. Grrr! 

Anyway, a minor irritation in the scheme of things but it needed venting ;) thanks for listening!

Aha thankyou, I know. As I remember he is pretty useless at sticking to the diet (usually avoids it but drinks beer, doesn't check restaurants properly) so wouldn't be much good anyway! But you know when you get really used to stopping yourself from finding any excuse to talk to someone...?!

Sometimes I wish we could get a "Brain Block" when we know we are about to do something stupid :lol:   and yes, talk to us instead.

Haha! Yes this forum has been a great diversion and much more helpful than he'd ever be. The fact that we have celiac disease in common now (of all things) is giving all our mutual friends a laugh too :)
