That lady thinks everything relates to her and everyone must be concerned with the same thing she is all the time.
So, I asked what the Dr. said and what not. Then, satisfied that her Dr. had not brought up Celiac or ran any tests on him, I apologetically offered up to her that she should consider a simple blood test for Celiac and simple skin tests for food allergies too. I think it is important, I know that if I'd have known sooner my life would have been much less painful and I don't want anyone to go through that! At the same time I felt sheepish about bringing it up because then I feel like that lady!
Every day since, I want to ask if she's going to do it or if she just thinks I'm that silly lady. I'm holding back!
I don't understand people who can just embrace not knowing. They say ignorance is bliss, but I wasn't born with that gene. I have to know. For instance, I knew there was no way on God's green earth that I could have HIV, but at my last annual checkup, I asked the Dr. to order the test anyway. I figured, they were drawing blood and I had mysterious symptoms - might as well check everything! There might be a slight chance that I was exposed helping coworkers apply bandaids or something. Well, I didn't stress about it waiting for the test to come back but when it did *Negative*, thank you very much, I was still just a tiny bit relieved. Putting your mind to rest is almost as good as knowing exactly what's wrong.
That's why I'm writing this. I'm dying to know that a friend took my advice but I can't out and out ask her without bordering on crazy person so, um...if you're reading this and took my advice, let me know! I'm dying here!
