I just want to be like everyone else, only problem is I can’t be. Socially, these diseases, Celiac and Crohn’s debilitate me. It’s especially difficult when everyone else is enjoying a cocktail or two. Sure, there are gluten free options but my body can no longer take any amount of alcohol.
A half of a glass of wine restricts me to the couch for a few days. You would think I would remember this for the next gathering. No such luck. Am I still in denial? Do I think that all of a sudden things will be different?
I know that it may seem hard to understand that I could easily accept not being able to eat many foods but the social pint of beer or even that glass of red wine after a stressful day is much more devastating to me! So, since I am a slow learner the next time you see me please remind me to drink water instead!!
