Hey I am 16 years old and my name is AnnaBelle, and I was just diagnosed right before school got out that I have celiacs disease, it is so hard for me just to feel normal, and I hate going to resturants with friends and on dates when I always have to order differently, which is uncomfortable to me. I think this is one of the hardest diseases to have for a teenager, and I dont like it, but it is also so hard to prepare meals for myself as well and for my dad who has celiacs just as well, my moms over my shoulder and is saying to tell ya'll I really misss pizza! lol, and she says if anyone has recipes to make sure ya'll fill me in with that, lol. But ya, I'm just glad everytime I get on here and see that I'm not the only one here with celiacs, I just feel as if it's ruined not only my body but my childhood as well, I hate this disease, and if you have any comments to make me feel better about having it, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks a ton!
