I can't agree with boydeasley that you are having a "pity party" I think its more of an awakening. I can agree that if you can start making your kids lunches gluten free it will make it easier for you. Celiac is hereditary and the less gluten your kids have the better for them, especially if they develop it later in life. I'm happy for boydeasley that it is no big deal for him. I however have seen how very hard it is on people especially if you are the only one you know that has it.
I do not have Celiac I have a reactive allergy to peppers. I can go in to anaphylactic shock if it is merely airborne around me. My mom and two sisters however do have Celiac, I do know it is not easy.
I have played with going G-free because I know I am a carrier and if my kids get it the more I take it out of their diet now the easier it will be for them later. So I do what I can to reduce the risk.
I think it is brave of you to put out there what you are going though and opening yourself to rude people in an effort to help other people navigate for themselves or understand the journey of a friend or family member.
Oh and for what its worth Pebbles are G-free so you can make "rice krispy treats" with them.
