#724435 Dealing With Family

Posted by tcmom on 21 August 2011 - 08:11 AM

@luvstoeat - I like the poison quote, I will use that one!

My immediate family has been pretty supportive but I haven't had much contact with others since my recent diagnosis. I have been trying to think of things to say like "Celiac Disease is an auto immune disorder that is triggered with the smallest amount of gluten to attack my body."

It also helped that my mom came with me to my doctor and the dietitian. She was shocked at the things she learned and is excited to try gluten-free cooking for me.
