10 Things I Hate About Celiac

Recommended Posts

Honestly, the thing that bugs me the most is trying SO hard and being So careful and still getting sick and not knowing why :(:angry:

This is so true :angry:;)

Absolutely! The hours you spend scouring your memory trying to figure out where you were glutened!

And so many times, the answer here seems to be 'work'...


I'm really just here about my wife. Its all her fault!

I think it's pretty valid to be darn angry when people don't ATTEMPT to understand OR they maliciously try to prove you're not sick. There's a thread on here about someone whose spouse put gluten in the food just to prove he/she wouldn't get sick. :(

Dear Mtndog,

I agree completely! It is terrible being obsessively careful, and still getting sick! I know the source of mine is usually my parents. They don't pay attention. Crumbs are everywhere! It freaks me out! :unsure: You never know what is going to hurt you.

I have been on that thread you spoke of. It is so irritating that people do such things. My parents just are not careful. They do not seem to accept the seriousness of this disease. They say, it is all I talk about! That is because it is what my life is about! They do not understand, nor do they care to! Even worse, these people try to tell us we are selfish for wanting to be well! :angry:

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

5. Not being able to eat a blue box of Kraft Mac and Cheese.

This is one very long thread that I haven't had to time read all of so forgive me if this is a repeat. I buy the blue boxes of Kraft, take out the cheese powder and use that with my own noodles. You're right, there's something about boxed mac & cheese that you just can't replicate so thank goodness the cheese is gluten-free.


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

Peanut-Free since July 2006.
