I know about pity parties! I'm in the Air Force and I was away at a military school for six weeks. My classmates and I went to Gatlinburg TN for a weekend. They decided to hit up a pancake restaurant for Easter Sunday breakfast. The only thing the restaurant had gluten free was bananas and coffee. I sat through two hours of torture while my classmates feasted on pancakes, whipcream, crepes, syrup etc...I just wanted to cry but instead I sucked it up and drank a ton of coffee. Yep, I know how you feel.

I thought they didn't allow people with Celiac in the military? Something about not being able to guarantee the ability to accommodate the medical needs in a war zone?

Is that untrue?

Happy pity party! LOL

It sucks to watch people just enjoy food without a care. But then you realize that since so many are undiagnosed and they think it's 1 in 100 that have celiac or gluten intolerance, then most likely there are some people scarfing down the donuts and having D or gas afterwards secretly.

True that!! I was talking to one woman at work and she says she has food issues too, but never cares to figure it out and she was like "what? you mean D is not a regular thing in life? It is in mine..." Thank GOODness I am not her. Or I suppose I should say - thank goodness I know what causes my issues and I stay away from it! :rolleyes:

When I got diagnosed I had already been in the Air Force for 11 years. I go through medical boards annually to ensure I'm able to conduct my duties. I think it also has soemthing to do with the career field the military member is in. I do know the military isn't letting people IN the military who is already diagnosed.
