I'm sure we have all heard at least one of these over the years, just so many things Coeliacs do not want to hear!
We've all had things said to us that make us either groan, sign or just plain ignore the ignorant person who said it. Here is just a few of the ones I have heard, I'm sure there are many more!"They have steak or salad for you"
Because every Coeliac wants only those choices at every restaurant."A little bit won't hurt"
Oh yes it will, it will hurt your face a lot too."I made us toast, gluten free bread for you but I only had one toaster. And knife"
RED ALERT. Cross contamination"You have stomach ache? Are you sure those vegetables were gluten free?"
Just because I have stomach ache doesn't automatically mean I got glutened."So you have a gluten allergy?"
No I have an autoimmune disease."Want to grab a bite to eat at that new cafe?"
Only if you have extensively researched the place to make sure I can eat there safely."I could live without bread"
Sighs deeply"Oh I am doing that diet too, suppose to be really good"
It's not a FAD, gluten actually makes me very ill!"Just buy normal food, it's cheaper"
Too right it's cheaper, shame I'll be glued to the toilet if I eat it."We have chocolate brownie or ice cream"
Why is it EVERYWHERE can only offer chocolate brownie and ice cream for pudding!"At least you won't be tempted to eat that fabulous cake"
Oh I will, and I will sniff it until it makes me feel sick."What is gluten?"
Try googling it."Gluten free sandwiches taste disgusting"
Really? Try not having the option but to eat it."I suppose you don't want to come out for a meal with us"
Yes, I do, just make sure I can eat there!
