Will My Friends And Family Believe Me...

23 January 2011 - 11:06 AM

Hi Guys, I'm Deanna from the UK and have a question for you :)

I am 100% sure that I have a problem with wheat, but I am nervous that my Celiac blood test will come back negative, although I know from experience that I will need to avoid gluten, I am worried about how I explain to my family that I can't eat wheat etc when they ask me 'are you a Celiac?' and I have to say 'no, I'm not'.

Has anybody had a negative blood test and had difficulties with family thinking that 'it's all in your mind, there's nothing wrong with you...just eat food, you're attention seeking, making a mountain out of a molehill' etc?

I am pretty sure that I'm am just having the blood test so that I can hand my family a doctors note with the proof on it arghhhh!

Many thanks for contributing to this wonderful site btw, you've been a great help to me already and I can see you help many others too.

P.S. Much to my dismay the blood test results for Anemia will take only 1 week, the results for Celiac...8 Weeks! Shocking!
