I had to go on a Gluten Free diet for six weeks back in 2006. It was a suggestion by Dr's to rule out the possibility of a Gluten intolerance or allergy. It wasn't as common back then and I had many people that I knew get very annoyed with me. People that I thought were my friends. One friend told me that she wished that I would quit being so self centered and think of how it affects my friends when I won't eat the same foods as them.  I tried to explain that I was ill and just trying to feel better. And she said, "get over it, there is nothing wrong with you, you are just self centered." Sad

I've had similar experiences Tammie! When I was first getting diagnosed with coeliac people would excuse me of throwing up as a means of attention!Horrified Luckily all my friends and family were really understanding, many made special gluten-free cupboards full of food in case I visited. A few friends even had to change which restaurant they wanted to go for their birthday meal just so I could come, they never made it a problem Glad

I think negative responses just show the lack of understanding of how serious GF intolerances and diseases are.

Yes this things truly shows you who are your friends and who are your foes. As for me, I am going with by boyfriends quote. "I do not give a crap what people say or think about me, it is their problem and not mine" I started go after his quote few years back and man if life has started to bee easier when i could not care less about judgemental fools, what they think or say Laughing
