You'll Know You Are a Celiac If........

I have to post this she is growing so fast and doing new things everyday!

This is sooo good and so true also!'ve ever had to give a doctor a crash course in Celiac 101.'ve "brown bagged it" to an elegant dinner

...a 7 course meal is a 1 course meal for you -Lettuce.'ve driven more than 40 miles to buy a cookie. takes you 4 hours to grocery shop and your eyesight is ruined. hold your breath through the bakery section. feel like you need a loan to pay the grocery bill.

...your bread weighs more than a moon rock and just happens to resemble one as well.'ve disinherited loved ones for putting their knife in your mayo.'ve brought a suitcase full of food with you on an over night trip

...your family thinks you're crazy for not tasting their new chocolate chip cookie recipe, because surely a little nibble couldn't hurt right? show up at the annual church pancake breakfast with a mask and lettuce rollups

...having solid poop is the highlight of your day. have actually considered using a gluten-free bagel for a hockey puck've mastered saying "I actually enjoy MY food" (without your face twitching)

... you hide the gluten-free cookies when guests come over, so they don’t eat them. read the ingredient label on green tea - plain green tea. cried when you saw your family member brushing the crumbs off their hands (from making a gluten-containing sandwich) RIGHT OVER the open utensil drawer hear of a new health food store opening in a city close by and get ridiculously excited only to drive there, spend 2 hours walking around, reading labels, only to leave empty handed

... if you know that Xantham Gum is not for chewing.

... if you don't lick stamps
