I'm Not Just A Computer

Hi! I have a feeling you know how it feels to have everyone saying, "Hey, can you eat this?" or "Hey is this gluten free?" or "I'm so sorry!" but knowing that they are really just saying that to say it, but they seriously don't care just to step into your shoes for a second and say to themselves "oh, actually, I am sorry."

Don't  you find it so annoying when one percent of the word's population, not even just plain being gluten free but one percent of the world has celiac disease and you cant seem to find anyone?! It's as though all the people who understand you are all crammed into one tiny space and you're all alone?!

I started this blog when I was six years old to find a friend. a kid, who would understand me completely. I never found such a kid, but I know how it feels to be different. to feel left out at birthday parties and class celebrations.

I want you to know that I'm not just a computer, telling you what's yummy. I'm a kid out there, a gluten free kid, and I may not be close to you but I'm out there, and I know how you feel. I'm not going to sit here and be sorry for myself, I'm going to remember what the two months after I went gluten free were like, and I'm going to help someone get over it. I don't even mind if I don't get anyone writing back to me, I want people to hear me say this.
