#577434 Need Advise On What To Say

Posted by carsondcat on 23 November 2009 - 04:30 PM

I agree that with stubborn people who don't believe in such things as Celiac Disease and think the gluten-free is just the latest food fad going round, you won't be able to explain what you require. So eat before you go and take snacks with you to be on the safe side.

That said i would be pretty peeved with my other half if he ever thought that my celiac disease was causing trouble for someone else after all you're the one that has the trouble not them... You need his support not his criticism.. Even my supportive Hubby got slightly agitated the other day at his friends house because they had prepared me a lovely salad and chicken they had even thought about asking me to dish up first me to so i wouldn't get anything in it, but i couldn't make my self eat the chicken because it had been grilled and i wasn't sure about CC issues and the grill and i ended up eating just the salad which I was happy with and had no issues over. I had to refuse the dessert of baked apple and ice-cream because of the pans i saw the apples baked in and the ice-cream was cc with apple pie crust, so even with the best intentions of others you still have to be vigilant and risk upsetting people to stay healthy, It often can't be helped. Diagnosed with celiac disease for 9 years now and still taking my own food with me.
