Good Reaction To Celiac Disclosure

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I disclosed my celiac to one of my practicum supervisors. He responded really well. He had heard of celiac disease before and was very supportive. He said that he would make sure there is food for me when they get food. This was really amazing given that my professor at school was not supportive at all. He said I should tell my direct supervisor and I will next week. It was surprising to get such a good response after my school was so awful. Hopefully my direct supervisors will be wonderful too.

That's great. Luckily, most people that I've told have been supportive. Some people at work are a little so-so but I really think it's because they don't really understand what it is.

That is wonderful for you! YAY!!

I hope the gluten free food they get for you is safe.

But at least they are trying!

And that must be wonderfully validating to you to have him react that way!

It took courage to tell him but that is great that you were so well-received.

It should ease your mind about things at least.

Good luck in your academic work.

I don't know your situation at work, but I work in a warehouse. Last week my boss bought us lunch, chicken wings, one of my favorites. He actually asked the place providing the wings if they were gluten free. I didn't ask him to ask, he just did. They were and we all had wings and had a great time. I doubt he would have bought me anything special had the wings had not been gluten free, but it was really nice that he asked.

I told my other practicum adviser about my celiac. She was very supportive too and knew what it was. She was like, "it will be fine". This is such a much better reaction than I got from my school. It is nice to have support.
