it's interesting, the thing with dealing with other people about it... I haven't had that problem, and I don't know how much is the people I've known, or the area I've grown up in, but everyone has some allergy or some dislike... "I can't have nuts", or "I destest tomatoes", or "I'm vegetarian (or vegan)", or "I can't have cheese", or "I can't stand fish", or "I don't like spicey foods", or something. Everyone has very different tastes, maybe I've been around a wider variety of that, though. ;-)

Yep.....I think it just depends on the person, as well...for example, some people are more self-conscious about things, some people have understanding people around them, etc....I think it depends partially on environment and partially on the person....

In many cases, it's not that I have problems with other people, but that I feel different...when I'm eating with others who aren't really aware of celiac disease...
