Wow, are you so hung up on the fact that you have a soul sucking job that pays squat that you begrudge someone who actually worked and finished their education and has a better-than-you income a gift? Really? Jealous much?
No, no, and no.

Next?

Hey, maybe you can afford to give a five hundred dollar gift to someone who makes that in 4 minutes, but I can't. Call me a cheapskate, they're lucky they got a card!

Ha!

I have heard it described as not eating anything with a face. The person got real aggravated when I brought up oysters, but you get the point.

And she couldn't just ask for the vegetarian meal and pick out the stuff that she can eat. If there is pasta on the plate, she can't eat anything there.
I've been to several events with this friend, and he doesn't make an issue of it, just asks the caterer to fix a plate of whatever sides are safe for him to eat, and nobody has ever had a problem with that. Might have something to do with not wanting their catering company linked to anyone's death or something like that. It's hard to pick up any referrals when you kill any of the guests.
Wow - I can honestly say I have never heard of someone dying from eating pasta. While I believe a lot of people feel better and are healthier when they don't have glutens, can pasta REALLY kill a person???

In my Washington Post forum, several peopel said the same thing: Celiac disease is that serious -- and that some people have it so bad, even food that merely touched pasta will have enough gluten on it that it will make them very sick.

I can't even imagine.

A recent article I read said that the likely culprit is the highly engineered grain foods we've created -- they are much more complex fibers than what we were eating in the past, and not everybody can adapt to process them fully.

That's very interesting. I never heard of that. I would imagine it's still fairly rare, though. But who would have thought?!

Yup. My friend's case is that severe. He is very careful about what he eats and carries an epi-pen with him at all times, and has had to use it more than once - usually due to somebody thinking they are "helping" him by lying about what is in a dish, in order to prove that it's "all in his head".

Try this article from the NY Times on diet as it affects something like an auto immune disease including celiac .
It closely mirrors teh diet I have been on for a month. I don't have the sensitivities(I think) and as a normal person I can tell the difference.

A good friend of mine had a problem with reoccurring yeast infections, so she tried a gluten-free diet and it took a year, but the yeast infections were gone.
