Im So Lucky

Recommended Posts

To have such great parents. Yesterday they came to see me, first time they have left the house since the doggie passed away. Well my dad brought me a couple of articles from the paper and a few glut4en free recipes. I was crying like an baby cause they thought of me, and because i know so many on here dont have families that get this disease at all. And yet my parents are the best. They even talked us into going home for the holidays and they are willing to cook the whole meal gluten free and are going to buy new dishes to cook it all in. Of course i have to tell them what they have to buy and stuff, but i just thought it was so wonderful.

I really dont think i would be coping with all of this if it wasnt for my family and the support i get on here.

Im still nervous about christmas eve, since it will be at hubbys sister. She makes a huge spread of mexican foods, like chicken mole, posole, enchiladas and such. She does have crohns so she might be able to make something that i can eat, if not i can make something that i can eat. Or heck i will just drink til im merry and not worry about food, believe me i will need to drink to be with all of that family lol. Just pray i dont tell them how i really feel after everything they pulled when the brother passed away.

They eve got me a hotel room with an kitchen, just in case i do have to cook some of my own food.

Oh Paula, they sounds like wonderful parents. I am glad you have the bond with your parents, there are a lot of people I know who are not close with their parents at all. My mom is like my best friend. I know how you feel about being lucky. :)


~~~~Gluten Free since 9/2004~~~~~~

Friends may come and go but Sillies are Forever!!!!!!!

They are the best parents any person can have. My mom is my best friend, she was my maid of honor when i got married, people were kinda shocked i picked her, but it was the best choice. I think they are just so happy that i finally found what was wrong with me, cause for so many years i would always get so sick when we had parties or celebrations and i would get so sick at them. I even left my husband to be on the alter cause i was so sick and had to run to the bathroom. I cant wait to renew our vows for our 10th anniversary ad my parents 35th next year.

I am so happy for you. You are lucky to have wonderful parents but they are alo lucky to have a child who appreciates their efforts!

I'm so jealous. My parents keep trying to get me to reintorduce gluten into my diet "so you will build up a resistance", despite the massive improvements to my health in the two months I've been Gluten-free Casein-free. And even with them seeing what happened when I glutened myself this weekend. :( :(

Hopefully I'll actually stay healty enough to keep a job and can move out soon.
