The longer you keep on the journey, the easier it gets.
Will there be days you just want to throw caution to the wind, and get something with possible cross-contamination? Of course there will be. That’s when you make that difficult decision to take that chance or not. And possibly it becomes a reminder to keep things handy to grab and go from home, or perhaps your own packaged gluten free snacks such as pretzels, to get you through – temporarily.
Take a moment when that happens, and quietly thank yourself for being persistent in getting a diagnosis, and now for being persistent in taking care of your body. Show your strength in saying no to yourself in questionable surroundings.
