You have put that very well. I have been living with Celiac disease for over 15 years. When my son and I were diagnosed gluten-free food was almost unheard of or was crap. I ate a lot of rice cakes in the beginning. While this is what we have to face everyday we don't have to complain daily. My friends and family are very understanding of my diet requirements. They will apologize if one of the dishes they are serving isn't gluten-free and my response is always "don't worry about it, there are other things to eat". I do know of some people who are fanatics about the possibility of perhaps a bit of gluten sneaking into their food. You need to live your life.
