#840762 Always Bring Your Own Food!

Posted by flagbabyds on 03 December 2012 - 06:20 PM

The 2 things I learned when I was diagnosed (at 20 months old), so really the 2 things my mom taught me when I was young are
1. never be too nice
2. always carry rice cakes

I'm 22 now, I still have a bag of ricecakes in every bag I have, along with a protein bar and such for the moments where I don't feel comfortable eating what is being served.

#772933 20 Years Today

Posted by flagbabyds on 12 February 2012 - 11:49 AM

Hey guys,

So about once a year I come back on here to post an update for the newbies and such to say that it is possible to be gluten free as a teenage, as a college student, and as a person for 20 years. Today is my 20th anniversary of my "diagnosis day" as my parents call it, and I'm happy to say that I've been doing great (about to graduate from college with a bachelor of science in Chemistry), and have never once consciously cheated on my gluten free diet.

To all of you out there who are suffering with teh diet changes and such, it can be done! and it's so much better for you guys now that it was when I was diagnosed, the only company out there that did gluten-free was Ener-g.

I hope everyone I used to interact with out here are doing well, and welcome to all the new members on this message board.

20 years seems like a long time!

-Molly
