Fwiw, I have friends with Celiac who seem to manage going out and drinking, and having food like a normal person, although they seem to be much more laid back and enjoyable to be around than you two, so ymmv.
They might experience different symptoms or have different issues. Some people with celiac never even know they have it until they get a blood test for it. They only find out when a relative gets diagnosed or when they have anemia or a vitamin deficiency. I personally get food-poisoning-like symptoms (including vomiting) and a horrific rash so I'm probably more careful than most people. It probably is less enjoyable to go out with me than it is for you to go out with your friends. But IDK why you are so ago about it given that I'm not asking you to do anything but let people who know what's going on give me tips/advice
Why are you anon?
Also, have you ever worked in a restaurant? Do you know how impossible it is to make sure theres nothing that touches something else in specific cases, even within specifically targeted restaurants like veg or GF-friendly? There is no way to make someone who is getting paid min wage be diligent with their life about constantly making sure that a piece of bread wasn't on a cutting board before lettuce was. There's nothing agro about that post at all, I think you sort of missed the point here. It's just the way it is... also, fwiw, this shit is not exactly the same thing as a real allergy, e. coli potential contamination, norovirus, etc.
