  1. I get it!...won`t try again. No...I don`t live with celiac...but trying to live with cancer, not scary, but *~very scary~*... which by the way will eventually kill me. So, actually, sometimes friends and families do get it. Again, with any illness, the one ill needs to find how to blend with the rest of the world. Again, thanks to everyone for your imput...much appreciated.
  2. Thanks to everyone for your replies. I was curious as my sister has always been some what of a hypochondriac and obsessive compulsive....so just was curious. I am very aware of the need to adapt one`s diet for different health requirements. Having been diagnosed with cancer 11 months ago, I am in the midst of changing my diet. Even though I was always very conscientious of maintaining a healthy regime, there is always room for improvement and some illnesses do require major adjustments. It is always one`s hope to adjust while continuing to live harmoniously in society. La
  3. Hi there, My sister has celiac disease (diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago) and I have two questions. This Christmas my family visited at my home. I planned a meal that excluded any wheat and so advised my family. My sister informed me shortly before Christmas that she would bring all her own food so I did not have to worry about contamination. I have another friend who has celiac and does come to my home for dinner. I avoid wheat and she is quite fine with this arrangement. I have a number of friends that have different diet restrictions, like diabetes, etc and always go to whatever lengths to adapt the meal to their requirements, so we can all enjoy the meal together. So I am trying to understand why my sister took this route. Also, she has a cat allergy and does not not want to take a antihistamine. I have been told by a dietition there are ones without wheat. Can anyone answer my questions? la2
