    My best friend invited me to go with her and her family on an RV trip to Disneyland for her sixteenth birthday... Her family believes that being gluten free is a fad and doesn't recognize that it is serious.. My mom doesn't want to let me go because she is worried about how im going to eat.. I have only been gluten free for 5 months and i don't want my intolerance keeping me from going places and having fun especially missing out on my best friend's 16th birthday!! Can anyone share their experiences with Disneyland or give me any tips? I would have to pack a weeks worth of food... also any advice about dealing with her parents disbelief? thanks!
  2. yes...I have the same thing, ever since i have been gluten free (5 months) my period has been late every month, last time I was 10 days late. Before I went gluten free I had regular periods but they were always really heavy and now I just have random scheduling but light periods. I thought that maybe my cycle was just reconfiguring itself since I haven't been on the diet for very long. let me know if you find out why being gluten-free changes it..

    Annoying Friends!

    ha yeah i have the same problem! im fifteen and a high school cafeteria is scary enough without having to bring gross looking food... My friends poke fun of my food and intolerance and i laugh along because i don't want to be too sensitive but their "joking" daily gets old... My best friend and I recently got in a fight and her retort was "At least I can eat cake! and what the he11 are you gonna do on dates?". This made me upset because i do worry about how my life wont be normal in the dating world all the time! After i walked away she was like "gosh I'm just kidding!", but I don't think i can handle her hurtful "jokes" everyday!! but other than these jokes, my friends are really good friends and we all get along really well, I just don't know how to lightly make them stop being rude... So i guess i don't really have any advice for you since i'm struggling with the same issues,maybe you could start with talking to your closest friend about how serious it is and show her/him that there's other humor besides your food..The less that you pay attention to it the less they will continue to talk about it. I'm just hoping that it will get better once my friends grow up and realize its seriousness.. Thankfully my closest friends understand how much pain i go through when i eat it on accident, so they take me seriously, but that doesn't stop them from making fun of my food or eating all of my good food! i always feel like rude when i don't give my hungry friends some of my food but i know i wont be able to eat anything from anywhere else. Good luck!
