Craving Gluten Free
Posted 29 May 2008 - 05:19 AM
I wasnt sure where to post this, just a littel story I wanted to share b/c my mom doesnt think anything of it.....
I am 22 and self diagnosed. When I was younger and would go shopping with my mom (way before I knew I was Gluten intolerant) I always remember passing through the gluten free section in the store and stopping and looking. For some reason I was always drawn to looking at the food, especially the pretzels. I ended up bugging my mom to buy me the pretzels, and of course she got upset b/c they were more expensive, but i kept bugging and bugging So evetually she bought them for me and after that I ended up craving them (even though my mom had no idea how b/c she thought they were absolutely disgusting- haha) My mom got pretty upset everytime we went to the store and I wanted Gluten free pretzles haha she said "why dont we just get regular prtetzels?, they are much cheeper" But for some reason I just craved the gluten-free ones really bad!
Maybe it was an early sign for my mom as if getting sick all the time and almost missing a few grades in school wasnt enough!!!
just thought I'd share
