    The worst is when they try to make something "gluten free" for me but I know they've probably contaminated it so I can't eat it. They leave me alone after that. Celiac sucks.

        Or when they think you don't eat bread because you're avoiding carbs and then mockingly point out you're eating carbs cos you served yourself a potato...

          This. Bugs me.
          The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

            Uninformed in laws who swear that they made a GF Mac and cheese for your children and then say 'wait, macaroni has gluten in it?"
            -> Insert crying child here <-

            Or the other in law who offered to bring a GF dessert to a family dinner, pulls out rice crispy treats with frosting and malt balls on top. Ugh

            Both incidents at the same meal and they wonder why I am hesitant to bring my family over for dinner!

              Or the in-laws want to make an at home pretzel kit IN YOUR KITCHEN and you have to tell them they can't. A dietitian should know better than to even ask that (or send the kit to your non-celaic SO).

                    Today at school drop off all the teachers were standing in the parking lot handing out coffee and these big chocolate biscotti pastries to all the parents (they said it was parent appreciation day ). They were standing out in the rain doing this and I felt so bad for them, I didn't have the heart to say no. I don't even drink coffee ugh, lol. Brought it home and dumped the coffee and gave the biscotti to my 4 yr old son, who did appreciate it lol.

                      watch out Sara - people are going to start screaming at you for giving that to your 4yo. Not me but some just can't help themselves.

                          This is a rotten attitude to have. People like this might be annoying (they are annoying to me) but their objective is to try and create a happy work environment. This is what they think will accomplish that. Even though you might tell them 100 times that you do not eat cake, they will feel like they are being impolite if they do not at least offer it to you even if they know you will say no.

                          Try to see the world not through other people's intentions rather than seeing it as people always being in your way. All you have to do is say no thank you.

                          And if you are celiac or have celiac children, never go anywhere without bringing your own food or being prepared to not eat. Expecting other people to care about your requirements when other people live in their own self-obsessed universes is a recipe for constant frustration.

                              I've noticed a lot of people tend to get freaked out if you don't eat the same things that they feel are "guilty pleasures" or whatever. I think on some level it scares them that someone is "able to say no" to a "delicious cake with frosting!". I just take a really relaxed approach: "Here have some cake!" "No thanks, I'm good. Looks tasty, though, thank you." Eventually most people figure out what you won't eat and it's no big deal.
