In Topic: First Thanksgiving Since Diagnosis...feeling Anxious

Yesterday, 09:50 AM

"Awkward" sort of goes along with celiac I think, especially in the beginning. My first dinner party with friends after diagnosis I took my own little plate of food. When I (and my plate) sat down there was total quiet as everyone stared at me. At that time I was not a cook in any way, shape or form! The only comment made by anyone was "Oh, what is that". sigh! lol It gets easier. Everyone, you and those around you, need time to get used to this new thing called celiac.

Why is it not possible to not drink or smoke? Because you are young? Sorry, no excuse. How badly do you want your health? How badly do you want to live. Just saying

I understand the need for the vet prescribed diet.... but I am going to object a little here. And some of you may disagree but that's ok, I'm going to stick my neck out here anyway!
We currently have three dogs and prior to this had five, the oldest being 18. A couple of our furkids were given vet prescribed foods for various conditions. Once I went g.f. we put the kids on g.f. food as well, chucking the special pricey vet food. After doing a lot of research we felt that most dog foods, even the "pricey" ones are filled with useless grains ~ rice, wheat, oats, barley. Dogs were not meant to eat grains. Grains make for good food filler but do nothing for the overall health of the creatures. Once we went grain free for our pups skin issues went away, no more flaky itchy skin, tummy upsets went away and the two that had been on "special" diets got better.
That said, and I know some will not agree with me, research the pet foods and then decide for yourself. I, personally, do not believe in vet prescribed foods and would cook for my pets before giving the vet foods to them.

Pile your plate with lots of your own dressing, corn bread & desserts and be sure you go first. Even if it means scooping out your portions as it comes out of the oven. My first year filled my plate first I hid my plate in the laundry room till time to sit down! lol Get involved with the food prep so that you know exactly what you will be eating. And, if it makes you feel less anxious, take some meat & veggies of your own from home. Whatever it takes to make you feel safe!
