@SparkleBee11:  He sounds like he’s been really amazing.

I know it’s hard to realize but it is so much easier today with awareness than it was way back in the day. My mom’s best friend has had Celiac’s disease since the ’70s. The change in gluten free options from that time to now is just staggering.

I know this is a super tough transition but just remember you’re just starting the journey. Soon you guys will be more accustomed to dealing with.

Good luck with everything!! It does sound like you’ve found a total keeper 🙂

@Asia:  it’s an autoimmune disease. If her food somehow comes in contact with even a bagel crumb, her body attacks it and she will get sick. 

OP I feel for you! But it does get easier with time 🙂 my fi has actually started to like gluten free foods!

I’m sorry – that is really tough.  I have recently started a no dairy, refined carbs, grains, sugar, legumes and alcohol diet but DH isn’t doing it.  He doesn’t complain but it has totally affected where we go to eat, the groceries etc.  I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for you and I hope it gets better soon!

He’ll get used to it, don’t feel guilty. My FI is a Type 1 diabetic so we eat a little differently than most people and I have to wait for him to test his blood sugar and things, but it’s not that big of a deal once you get used to it. Sometimes he feels guilty about things (more serious things than diet), but I appreciate that he doesn’t freak out about it, it’s just a small part of our lives which are great otherwise!

@SparkleBee11:  I knew a bit about celiac disease, but I had no idea that someone could have such an intense reaction to such a tiny amount of bread crumbs! I guess I just need to rework my thinking so that I am more aware. I knew how sever some people’s peanut or strawberry allergies could be. Wow. Eye opening.

@Missykate:  I just had no idea someone could have such a severe reaction.

@SparkleBee11:  My SIL has coeliacs, and we went to their house for tea one night. We had chicken schnitzel, and found out halfway through that they were gluten free breadcrumbs. I was so surprised, and to me it tasted exactly the same as a standard chicken schnitzel! The gluten free range of food is evolving all the time, and to someone like me, it tastes just the same.

It will take a bit of adjusting, trying out new recipes, but in time I’m sure your FI won’t even taste the difference! And at least now he has more of an awareness about how sick stray non-GF breadcrumbs can make you!

@SparkleBee11:  I feel ya girl! I went G Free almost a year ago due to allergies and dairy free as well about a month ago. It’s definitely a challenge for everyone to overcome but you’ll both get there!! 

And I can relate on the crumbs. I can’t even use the miracle whip, it’s infested with gluten from boys being careless!

They get better at it after time 😉
