People don't seem to get that celiac disease does make you gluten intolerant and not just a pretentious douche bag.
Yup, basically. I don't know why people get so automatically aggressive and annoyed when I tell them I can't eat gluten. I see similar responses with people who are vegan.
I don't think it's a matter of people not knowing that celiac disease makes you gluten intolerant, because, well, that's all it does. It's more of a thing that people don't really know celiac disease is a thing
We had a patient last month that had pain and lots of cases of diarrhea in the past few years, and my teacher asked for an exam for celiac disease, and it was positive. I couldn't begin to imagine the pain she felt. I'm glad you were finally diagnosed after so much suffering @cara (unfortunately it took you that long though )
Yup, it definitely sucked. I'm so happy to hear that she got a diagnosis, though. It's shitty to not actually know what's wrong with you, especially when it's such a simple solution.
