A real friend would not do what she is doing. I truly don't feel that any of us need people like that in our lives. It is hard enough to work with this problem without those who are supposed to love us and be our friends throwing stumbling blocks in our way. Not believing is a stumbling block. This is not like being a crack addict, they are not enabling, we have no choice. They would probably support a junkie better than some of us. People do the pity trip saying that addiction is a disease but it is a disease of choice. They chose to smoke, drink, do drugs. We did not have a choice with this. Personally if you have gone through two years of this with this person, I would cut them loose.

In essence what you are in right now with this so called friend is an abusive relationship. If you allow any kind of abuse then that is what you will receive from others. She feels as long as you take it she is free to do and say what she pleases to humiliate you.

Yes we are picky, it is our lives at stake. We have to be picky.

Over the past two years I have forced a lot of people like that out of my life and it was the best thing I have ever done. It was not easy but it is worth doing. There a lot less people in my life but the ones remaining are of a much higher quality.

If all the world is indeed a stage and we are merely players then will someone give me the script because I have no f!@#$%^ clue as to what is going on!

Started low-carb diet early 2004, felt better but not totally gluten-free. Went 100% gluten-free early 2005 and life has never been better.

Tell her you're bull*hit intolerant in addition to Celiac.



I have lost 2 good friends over celiac stuff. One wanted to be my mother, and badger me about my food. See ya! Another thought I was full of crap. Nope! Cant be full of crap when you have D! See ya! It was not easy, AT ALL, but I have tried to eliminate people from my life that bring me down. I have noticed that the friends that I have made SINCE going gluten-free are totally cool with it. It isn't a change for them! And my long distance friends are MUCH better about things, maybe because I don't go out to eat with them, so don't have to deal with that. But mostly, the honest-to-goodness-friends are going to shine through!

I am really sorry about your situation. If she is really that good of a friend, then you will be able to talk about this. If you can't see yourself talking to her about the situation, then you guys aren't that close, you know?

I have this list, called "The 7 qualities of women you want to be around" from a magazine:

1- They see the stregnths, not the limitations, in others. They make you proud to be yourself-because they tell you WHY you're special.

2-They trust you so fully that you feel compelled to meet their expectations. Consequently, they make you feel like a better person than you normally are.

3-They respect you for what you have done and where you come from.

4-They are authentic and don't need you to lie to them to feed their egos.

5-They live by their rules but don't expect you to follow them.

6-They are at peace with themselves, so they don't have to prove anything to you.

7-They're good listeners and sincerely interested in you, so you feel important. Because they're available for honest and genuine discussion, they make you want to share yourself.

I love this list!
