Tonight I feel so angry because yesterday I read on a different site a idiot who apparently has celiac disease and didn't stick to the gluten-free diet for years . I have read so many stories of dingbats who think there so cool by not sticking to the gluten-free diet and than suddenly they want to stick to it. Makes me so angry I know it's there choice and I will admit this is really about my frustrating health problems , it annoys me so much , I have been ill for 7.5 years I stuck to my diet 1000 % since day one and have problem after problem and than I read comments about people who apparently have celiac disease don't stick to the diet and are fine health wise :( These people should be ill and going through bad pain and tests , not people who take the gluten-free diet seriously ! Rant over !

Anyone else get annoyed by Celiac's who think the gluten-free diet doesn't apply to them ?

It's more of a head shaker for me. Just like my uncle who had lung cancer and still smokes, and a diabetic friend who eats a bunch of sweets.... Just not smart... and it makes them seem...weak to me.

The ones that really make me mad are the parents who take their kids off the gluten-free diet or let them cheat. Especially the parents who have read all the info and know there is no cure but feed them gluten still!

I know it's there choice but it's disgraceful making themselves ill and risking the future for the sake of food . I agree I believe most Celiac's are strong because sticking to the diet can be tough at times . I shouldn't laugh but sometimes I hear people on simple diets complain about there diet is hard us Celiac's have things 10 x worse than any diet . celiac disease just annoys me lots stupid disease .

I feel sorry for any celiac who chooses to ignore the only treatment available for this life-threatening disease. It's not rocket science and it's not that horrible. We're lucky we have a treatment for our AI disease that does not require drugs.

I used to get pissed off at the "cheaters" but now, I just think "well, it's your life and your choice". But if you do it, you do not get to bitch when you develop other AI diseases down the road.

And if you are a celiac who is also a parent and you ignore the treatment and then, cannot be there for your kids because you are too sick to function, well, I have absolutely no patience or empathy for that kind of foolish thinking at all. And I am all about compassion. But that is just plain stupid.

Well, that's why so many people don't want to know they have it :P Because they know they would be one of those people who would have to cheat and them be berated by people like us, so they choose to believe they do not have it and then they can eat what they want without opprobrium. :ph34r:

My sister is one of these. She knows better than complain to me about her ailments, because I will just say to her, "Weeelll, could be the gluten, ya know?" Her latest was that she and her daughter (my neice) both have psoriasis. She has seen what I have been through with my psoriatic arthritis and how I have to go to the U.S. every year to get my Humira, and yet she still couldn't resist telling me! And when I started my "Weeelll.." she changed the subject. :lol:

It used to make me crazy. Now it only drives me up a wall if they are trying to kill their celiac kids. That is the one that really bothers me. Other than that though? Wanna kill yourself? Be my guest. I've known people who have both attempted and actually killed themselves through more traditional means. I have no patience or time for these people. I don't care by what means you are committing suicide, but by all means, spare all of us the sob stories about how much your life sucks because you can't put down the donut.

It never crossed my mind that I would see a "that's what she said" joke around these parts. You never fail to crack me up. :lol: I'm sure my husband thinks I'm halfway crazy, as I frequently am laughing while perusing these forums or other random celiac related sites.
