Getting a diagnosis. All my specialists, my kids GI (who is a world renowned celiac specialist) and my GP all agree that I couldn't not have celiac, but because of the stupid rules on diag here I can't be diagnosed!! I hate that, drives me insane. Because when I'm in hospital and stuff its all like "I need gluten free" blah blah "haven't got an official diag...blah blah" and then their faces glaze over and they get that look in their eyes like a "we are dealing with one of *them* " looks and then I have to worry about wether they are going to take my gluten-free request seriously and am scared to eat the whole time. Arrrghhhh!

I have a really bad affliction, I can't lie...or even fib ever, my mother thought it was the best thing ever when I was a teenager - she knew about everything at all times!!

Chad, your last comment made me chuckle. :) For me, it is the lack of spontaneity. I am a real foodie and I miss walking through the city I live in exploring new restaurants without having a care.
