Found Out Cashier At Whole Foods Was Diagnosed

Recommended Posts

I went friday to my local Whole food Friday for my food, and the cashier that I like to go to, she looks like the classic Celiac, very painfully thin. I never asked her anything but I just happe to ask her if she has ever had the pizza crust that I was buying and she said no and she looked at what I was getting and she said Oh I can eat this, I then asked her if she was diagnosed and she said a month ago. I was happy to know that she was not anorexic and I wanted to tell her about this forum but she had other customers behind me, and I did not want to hold up the line. so I thought that this was interesting so hopefully I can start talking to her more.

Donna,

That's great that you were thinking about telling her about the forum -- I say next time you're there, you make sure to get in her line and tell her. I'm sure she'd be flattered to know you remembered her, and even more grateful when you tell her about the forum.

Being newly diagnosed, I'm sure she's yearning for some contact with others who are going through the same thing. Your new relationship with her, and this forum -- will help her feel less alone.

She was excited when I asked her if she has had the pizza crust that I bought and said oh I can eat that and when I go next friday to do my shopping I will defiantly tell her about the site and ask her how she is coping and all.
