Living with a Gluten-Free Husband

First thing this morning I read a post on the gluten-free forum regarding a husband who has celiac disease, while his wife does not.  It was like reading about myself.  Sometimes we may feel that the person in our lives who has celiac disease is not interested in taking a hand in the treatment. Like the wife in the post, I too find it to be very frustrating at times.  But then I stopped and asked myself a tough question.  Why am I doing this?  "This" being doing all the research, food shopping and preparation AND being the "holder" of the information.  Is it because on some level I am the "woman" and it is my job?

Yikes, this kind of person is not really me. It is actually more like "if I do not do it, who will?"  Like Bruce Willis says in "Live hard, Die Free" it is because I am "that guy."  But more than that, if I am honest with myself, it is the praise that is given by other people who tell my husband, "you are lucky to have someone who will do all that for you."  Ah now that strikes a nerve.  I complain about him not doing enough and then I go ahead and do it.  So to all of us out there who have a husband, we need to stop enabling these men to not take a part in their treatment.  Having said that, when I find out how to do that I will be blogging about it here.

Until then, happy enabling!

Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.

Thanks for the info. I will ask the GI about my twin sister and nephews to see if they need to be tested regularly too. I'm hoping our insurance will pay for gene testing also to help rule any of us out if possible.

In the face of budget cuts, and in a move that may offer a glimpse of things to come, doctors with the the UK's National Health Service are eliminating gluten-free food prescriptions for adults, beginning in parts of Devon. As of July 1, the Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissio...
