More times than not, it would end up coming back up.
Hence, the flashback to that Saturday night my senior year in college.
I tried to imagine what it would be like to have someone taking up that space, watching me get sick — the look of sheer horror taking over their face.
I couldn't imagine sharing a bed with someone when my health got this bad.
I began taking a probiotic supplement and eating very specific foods in order to manage the autoimmune disorder, and things appeared to get better for a short while.
After about 40 minutes of sitting in silence while my date downed four slices, he finally turned to me and asked, "So, are you just not hungry or something? These tiny gestures may not require much effort, but mean more to me than he knows.
By standing by when I'm at my worst (weaning off my medication and running to the bathroom every five minutes) and at my best (insisting we order a flourless chocolate cake to split), does wonders to normalize my chronic illness.
Bringing them up to anyone is awkward AF, and usually not a turn-on (one would hope).
But on another note, not eating gluten — no matter the reason — gets a bad rap, thanks to people who think it isn't a medically necessary dietary practice.
