Thanks for all your responses, they did help. Once again, sorry for ranting.....it's literally been in my head for five years and I needed to get it all out. I go to school in a large city so there's a lot of options for eating, so I guess I have it pretty good. It would be so nice to meet someone at my school with celiac though.....there are a few diabetics, but I'd much rather have diabetes than celiac. It's much easier. But thanks for all your responses, they did help.....especially the "built in jerk detector" when dating.
