Gluten dreams and family that just doesn’t get it.

leave a comment »

I had a dream last night that I ate gluten. I was at someone’s house and ate cornbread. I realized after a few bites that it was probably full of extra flours. I remember asking if it had flour in it and they said yes, but it was organic. I started to panic and get very upset. … then I woke up.

Years ago when I took soy out of my diet, it was really hard to explain it to friends and family. Especially family. Going to a brunch where there would be “tons of things for me to eat!” and only being able to eat fruit. While I know people have great intentions and really try to accommodate my food issues and intolerance, it would be helpful to get the right one. My aunt thought I was lactose intolerant so she bought me rice milk? She also pointed out to me that it was organic.

This is going to be the hardest one to explain to people. I mean really. I work in a store where people tell me they don’t want wheat flour, they want white flour. Really, what kind of grain is white flour from then? White is a color, not a grain I’ve ever heard of. I told my dad about eating gluten free, he delivers bread for a living and has for more than 30 years and he told me I should try this one they carry that is made with flax.

But I think the real problem is that most Americans, including 99.9% of my family, has no idea what their foods look like in raw form. They now know that organic is better for you… There are tons of things that I know about foods, and there are tons of things I don’t know about foods. I’m learning everyday. I wish I could encourage people to think more about their food, but it has to be their choice and not forced upon them.

I wish I had been born with all of these food intolerance and known about being gluten intolerant/or with Celiac disease earlier in life. People who have known me my whole life, mainly family, know I could eat whatever I wanted but now don’t understand why I can’t as a 30+ adult. I’m old enough to know my body and know when something isn’t right.

Ugh.

I heard back from my doctor.

Gluten is back.

My stomach isn’t happy.

It’s Saturday, I’m excited for Wednesday.
