My diagnosis is pretty new (although I posted here years ago because I already suspected) and this is cracking me up! First because I actually commented to my mom after dinner, "sigh, it feels so nice to have normal poops"

My additions to this thread are:

You have a toaster with a post-it note that says, "Mom's toaster"

You yank a package of lunch mean out of your mother's hand because she's just handled regular bread and she's about ready to stick her paws all over YOUR turkey.

You work in an elementary school and actually use the mens room that no one EVER uses as your personal hidie hole (I'm a woman).

You're reading this thread while drinking a Bard's beer and trying to convince yourself that it's almost as good as your beloved Blue Moon and wondering if your brewmaster friend could try making a gluten free beer with a little blueberry and pumpkin, just for you.

You read this entire thread and realize that you've found "your people"

You get pissed when your brother looks in the full fridge and freezer and overstocked pantry and says, "hhhh, nothing to eat." :lol:

You get irritated when people act like you are rude for not sharing your expensive, homemade, organic, took-too-d^m-long-to-cook food at work.

You pull your shirt up and flash your pregnancy-sized belly when people say I can't eat beans it makes me bloat.

You spend more time reading food labels, studying ingredients, and researching cross-contamination for every product they sell at Walmart (i.e. everything there is) than the FDA does. :blink:

You happen to mention the word "McDonalds" and the response is, please don't tell me what is in the food. I like it too much and I don't want to know.
