When I read the thread title, I immediately thought that they were referring to your celiac as not being real. THAT would have riled me up.

However, if they were simply commenting on your lunch, I think you have been given enough good responses above, especially the one about the calories not being real, either. Personally, I might have responded "Oh, but it is a most delicious hallucination!"


I read it at first as " but yours aren't real". I thought they were referring to bust enhancement and wondered what that had to do with Celiac. :D

People just say stupid things. It's what they do. Listen to politicians if you don't believe me. You can always say something stupid right back at them. Or be polite and start a conversation about the food and help them understand a little better.

I wonder if you are eating a lot of processed gluten-free foods though? If so you might have a small gluten reaction going on and that might affect your feelings. I think Amy's food is somewhat questionable myself, and never eat it. I know other people like it just fine, I only tried it once years ago and had a reaction so won't try it again. I may have reacted to something else besides gluten, it's been so long I don't remember what it even was I ate. I have plenty of other intolerances besides gluten after all. It could have been the soy got me.

I guess in one respect I'm very lucky. I work in a building with two other celiacs and so it's no big deal to anyone at this point.

Now the first time I attempted to go out with a group of girlfriends I had already eaten at home. When the server took our order I told her I was just going to be having a vodka cranberry cocktail and one of my friends piped up, "she was a disease that makes her allergic to eating food". Fortunately I was with two other friends, one who has thyroid disease and the othe fibro and we all just rolled our eyes because she thinks we are all nuts (which is ok because we know she's crazy). :D I'm pretty sure the waitress just figured I was trying to diet or something. If this had happened at work though, I think I would have been really irritated.

It's funny, cause little jokes like that make me feel better! I also have always had a tendency to feel more comfortable in the presence of "humor."

I got a new job position just as I was going gluten-free and I'm in a completely new building with completely different people now. I've chosen so far to keep my gluten-freeness (I know that's not a real term, but oh well) to myself. I just don't want people to make a big deal of it, or think I'm making a big deal of it.


I find that humor is healing, hon--even when things are not so very funny (like when I was very ill.) ;)

I think "gluten-freeness" is a fabulous term! I shall use it liberally--giving you the credit for coining the term, of course.
May I?

Feel free to use my "my life in Gluten-Head Hell***" phrase, but I hold the copyright. :lol: :lol:

:D I can't even imagine being pencil thin and living on vodka but the image made me laugh really hard and I need all the laughs I can get.

I figure if you laugh really hard at least once a day, (I mean the almost wee your pants kind of laugh) then, that is a good day indeed. ;)

Yes, it is so reassuring to have other members from our planet to hang with, isn't it? Makes that giant blazing neon C on our foreheads feel less obvious when we are inter-mingled with the WEEs (wheat- eating Earthlings.)

I sometimes cover mine with a decorative bandana. But when I firmly refuse breaded chicken fingers, I give myself away. Fingers point, whispers start----and I am "outed". She's one of "them" (gasp)
