Been asked how you cope without cheese
Dairy comes from cows. Gluten comes from grain. Is it really so hard to understand?
Nearly cried at a dinner party
There is nothing worse than sitting there with extreme food envy because there’s nothing you can eat
Felt seriously embarrassed when eating out
Grilling the waiter about the contents of each meal and their cross contamination procedures can be a bit awkward when the whole restaurant is watching you.
Faked a smile when someone has brought you ANOTHER pack of Mrs Crimbles coconut macaroons
Remember when that was all we could eat? WHY is that all people buy their gluten free friends!?
Frantically eaten before going to a restaurant/party/wedding
Just in case there isn’t much you can eat. And then there is. And you barely eat anything.
Felt too awkward to ask a friend/relative about their cooking processes
And suffered the consequences afterwards, regretting it a lot.
