So I recently just started a job and I love it. On my birthday (the 22nd, and only my 4th day of work) (we celebrated all December birthdays then and it just so happened to be on my birthday) I found out that one of my co-workers also is Celiac, so I talk to him for a while and everyone is like "wow thats really cool that there are 2 people here with this" so I go to work the next day and he brought me cookies that were gluten-free that he had made because I couldn't partake in the cake and cookies the day before. How nice is that??!?!?

That's fantastic! I am fortunate to work with 3 other Celiacs so I understand completely!

That's awesome-my boss's sister is a celiac (although one that cheats frequently :blink: ), so she empathizes a bit. I got a fruit basket for Christmas, when normally I get stuck trying to fake excitement over a fruitcake or a box of cookies. Congrats!

that is awesome! I had to fake excitement over gifts of cheesecake and cookies and such this year... one of my clients though was about halfway through his massage when all of a sudden he realized that I couldn't have the cheesecake he brought and then he felt really bad... I was the one trying to reassure him that it was really ok, I am used to it and it was the thought that mattered...

one good thing, for our office Christmas "lunch", my boss took us all out to lunch, but he let ME pick out the restaurant so that he could be sure that there would be something that I could eat... I thought that was really thoughtful and nice!
