I hate celiac. You hate celiac. We all hate celiac.
With all that pent up anger, people need a place to vent.
Well…I invite you to lie on the Dude’s couch (figuratively speaking) and spew away.
I’m starting a new feature called “Celiac Rant of the Day”. (Real emails from real people.)
Need to vent?
Just send me an email with your rant and I’ll post it on my blog. No names will be used.
There’s just one rule: Once you’re done venting, you need to move forward and put the negative vibes on the back burner. Positive energy brings positive results.
Don’t you feel better already??
Here is today’s rant:
I have been extra emotional about having Celiac lately.
It seems whenever I call one of my 4 sisters or my mom they will try to get off the phone quickly, while I can clearly hear them chewing. I can tell they are out to eat. They then say apologetically they are sorry they didn’t invite me because they know I can’t go anyway.
I know it shouldn’t bother me, but it does.
Just yesterday I went to the store and had a total meltdown when I asked the meat counter guy if the brats were gluten free. He told me I could find frozen ones in the health mart and I spout off, fighting back tears, “that taste like crap!”
I then continue to try to find my sucky dinner for the night, but it was too late….the tears had already started to roll.
So here I am, a well known 36 year old mother who works at a large company in town and I totally break down.
I am not a cryer at all, but lately it has been difficult. I am trying to date a guy, I have to deal with family and friends who are not mindful of my inability to have normal food, the stores suck, I can’t go out to eat, I hate to cook and everyone and their brother gives me recipes they would never try.
I am just pissy and get sick of people saying “Oh they have that whole section in the store you can shop in!” I usually reply, “the selection of brownie mix is larger than the GF section.”
I am just cranky about it!
There…venting to someone who gets it is much better than venting to someone who tries to give me stupid positive advice when they have no clue what it’s like!
I always want to punch them in their face 🙂
