I hate being a Celiac!

For those of you who don't know, I have Celiacs disease, along with all the other females in my family. That means I can't have anything with wheat or gluten in it, which really includes more than you would think. Anyway, I get sick if I eat anything with gluten in it, my stomach hurts really bad. Sometimes it doesn't bother me as much, but other times I will get sick and I can't even figure out what it was that made me sick. It could be anything as small as a natural or artificial flavoring, or maybe it was something that was processed in a place where there is also wheat. Or maybe it was cooked on a pan that other non-gluten-free foods have been cooked on. It could be anything! Anyway, usually I don't think its that bad, I'm pretty used to it. But today I was sick all day long and I was in the mountains with nothing but an outhouse so it was pretty miserable. I'm just tired of it all and I wish I was normal! I'm sure I'll get over it by tomorrow though.

How awful. I'm so lucky! I don't know how you do it, keeping track of everything that might make you sick and stuff must be exhausting...

I know your pain. I am allergic to gluten as well. For me it gets a little bit more restrictive because I am also allergic to dairy, peanuts, anything citrus, corn and I even have a hard time with red-meat, processed sugar and pork. Trust me, I know exactly how you feel. If you have any good recipes, my wife and I, who were married in the Bountiful Temple, would love see them, and even share ours.
