I do not wish Celiac Disease on anyone. It sucks. It sucks even more when you don't find out you have it until you're almost 39.
I will say there are a lot of tasty alternatives for gluten containing food. For the most part, I have embraced my new wheat free lifestyle. But, every now and then, I really want to eat "real" food. For instance when the kids are eating pizza from Pizza Hut. I can't just grab a slice and go. If I want to eat at a restaurant I have to send the waitress to the kitchen with a list of items from the menu to find out if they contain gluten or not. Sometimes I can find the allergen menu online and check it out before hand.
You'd be surprised how many odd things have wheat/gluten in them. For instance, I bought some fajita seasoning today. Guess what? It has wheat in it. Regular nacho cheese flavored Doritos? Yep, wheat in them too.
I do occasionally eat a piece of regular cake or half the bun on my burger from McDonald's. I do not tempt fate very often. I tried that once. It almost killed me and landed me in the hospital for four days.
So, the next time you go to a cookout and you're eating your hot dog on a bun consider yourself privileged.
