Even restaurants that have gluten free menues or let you know what is gluten-free...by the time you see what you can have, it turns out to be a very limited choice. At home I can have gluten-free bread and other things that no other restaurants offer. I hate going over my speech with the waitress/waiter explaining the situation everytime I order. I hate getting sick the next day trying to figure out what caused it even though I was careful. I hate being told by a chain to call a toll free number to get information only to be told the only thing they have for me is a salad with grilled chicken or a steak (boring)!! I hate going even to other peoples houses and see them get a little upset with me even though I tell them not to worry about it. I hear Oh I forgot you can't have wheat all the time. I feel like I'm annoying them just by being there. I hate feeling like I'm always making a scene. I see my kids roll their eyes every time I order. And if I have to send a salad back because it has crutons on it even though I requested that it didn't. I am curious how others are coping because I'm ready to just eat at home and bring my own food if I have to go anywhere.
