I’ve had celiac disease my whole life but didn’t find out until about 7 years ago, when my body began to shut down. Little did I know I had been eating something that was considered poison to my body for so long and it was negatively affecting my immune system. Long story short, it was very serious. If I ate gluten, even just a bite, I would pass out. My body just couldn't handle it. Going into my DTS this allergy was a huge stressor for me. I was stressed about how I was going to eat on outreach, how I was going to make meals work here on base, and at times, it's exhausting to feel like people have to accommodate you for every meal.
