Try not to loose it. I know it’s hard to handle when you just get diagnosed with it.
It may feel like it’s the end of the world and you just want to scream no more real bread or pizza, no more bagels or pasta, you got to be kidding me. It won’t be easy but I promise you will survive. You just need to take it one day at a time.
I will never forget the day I was diagnosed which was 15 year’s ago. I still can not even believe that because back then no one had celiac disease or even ever heard of it, let alone new what it was.
When I left the doctor I really did not even know where to begin. I had to carry the list from the doctor with me around of all the food’s I could and could not eat and learn to read and understand every ingredient and know what they were.
The first thing that became my best friend was corn tortillas. They became my bread. If I had a sandwich it was on corn tortillas, if I had a hamburger or hot dog it was on corn tortillas. If I ate cheese it was with tortilla chip’s.
Fifteen year’s ago supermarket’s did not sell gluten free food’s, they did not have a gluten free isle like now.
I remember I had to go to one of those small health food store’s that were always so highly overpriced, to treat myself to some gluten free goodies and to buy my pasta and some bread once in a while.
Now having celiac is more known and being gluten free is actually becoming a new fad to some people.
So finding gluten free food’s is easier. Now it’s in just about every supermarket and some restaurant’s even offer gluten free food’s on their menus.
So now if you become diagnosed with celiac and have to be gluten free no worries it’s really not the end of the world and remember it’s actually eating healthier.
