My partner was telling me on Sunday how bad she feels for me that I won't ever again be able to just stop somewhere and pick up a bagel. I feel bad about that too. I'm realizing that it will be hard to find restaurants that are gluten-aware enough that I won't worry about cross contamination. But, as incurable diseases go, celiac is definitely WAY better than some others. I expect that I will become quite savvy at planning and packing 99% of my meals away from home, and that it will just be my new normal. Right now, I'm having a hard time being enthusiastic about that.
