Can I Vent?

Recommended Posts

I 'm having one of those weeks. But seriously, i don't know anyone who has celiac. My friends try to understand but yet they still forget and eat donuts in front of me and offer me some. Im not mad at them or anything. I know i have to deal with those kinds of situations but idk .

Also my parents always make cookies and pizzas, and i get so sick to my stomach but i don't want to complain. They have to eat too.

Sorry for venting. like i said don't know anyone who'd understand

Missnbagels,

I totally understand what you are going through. The other day my brother made chocolate chip cookies (with wheat flour) and I almost died...they smelled so good! But he ended up burning them, so I wasn't too jealous!

As far as friends go, it is really difficult. Last night I went to a party and they kept offering me cake and sandwiches!! They all know of my gluten issue, but they choose to ignore it. I am not saying that they need to make me gluten-free food, but don't offer me gluten food 100 times in a night.

If you ever want to talk, you can feel free to PM me.

It's a bummer. Vent all you want to.

Do you still live at home???? I would have some gluten free goodies just incase so you don't feel left out when they're eating reg ones! That has saved me sometimes!

Good Luck!

Yeah i do live at home

I have food for me but it doesn't bother me that they have those foods, like pizzas and cookies, because i have those also. But i have problems smelling strong smelling foods like cookies browies, pizzas, etc. So when they have those foods, i can't go anywhere to get away from the smell. then i get sick to my stomach

so it's frusterating.

i know how you feel girl. i dont live at home but i do live with 4 guys that are HUNGRY and they dont have celiac so they are ALWAYS eating yummy foods, cake, cookies, biscuts and gravy, breakfast burritos, etc.. it kills me! its hard bc they dont understand.. i basically drool over their food while they eat lol. i just go and grab something else that i know i can eat and pretend it tastes the same.. haha doesnt work. thats why im glad i found this forum because no one i know has celiac disease. but its ok. im just waitin for the day that every restuarant has a gluten free menu ha. one day! :rolleyes:

Hey, I am Allie. I am new. I just want to say I know how you feel. I don't know anyone with celiac either. In the begining I stuck to the diet for several years, wouldn't even touch breads and stuff. Everyone always offers(d) me things and it was just annoying. The past 2-3 years I havent really watched what I have been eating. Which I don't reccomend. It got to me after a while, especially after seeing everyone eat whatever they want. But all in all I know how you feel. Though My friends were good with it. My one friend always made new cookies of her own for me =) my other friend would try my Gluten-free snacks with me. The Gluten-free snacks are pricey i admit, but I have things you can make from your kitchen. If anyone ever wants to talk, let me know. I'm 17, going on 18 on feb 5. Thanks for reading all that! Bye.

hey! so growing up i never knew anyone who had celiac disease, or even a food allergy. back in the day they didn't have any kid support group events so I would go to the regular meetings with my mom. in this particular group, all the people in the group were over the age of 60 and had several other problems as a result of a late diagnosis. as i got older ROCK started to form and so i would go to some of those events when we could.

I defintely suggest looking into finding some sort of group in your area and checking it out. even if they are older than you it still helps to be able to have a meal and not worry about anything and know that there are others out there.

When I moved to tallahassee this year it was so nice, because while I do answer the same stupid questions from people and have to reject food and trips to subway, so many more people have heard of it before, and a large majority of people i have met know something about celiac, and i've met a few that have it.

but everyone on here is here for you. they are soo willing to answer any questions and listen and complain with you, so feel free to complain haha..

WHY AREN'T THERE ANY KID SUPPORT MEETINGS IN FLORIDA!!!! Sorry, needed to get that out. There are none within a three-hour drive, and even the reg ones are far... <_< Kinda frusterating. Only a couple of my friends understand. (A couple meaning two.) I don't hardly know any adults with celiac, let alone kids! Unless you count here on the forum... Then I know a few... But none personally. I wish I did. It'd be great to know another girl or boy in Fl my age...

Hey! i know i went to a kids meeting or two a while ago..it was when i was in middle school..so im not sure what the age group is or if they even meet anymore, i can call my mom back home and ask her if she has heard anything about a kids group meeting. we usually had to drive around 45 minutes to get to a meeting.
