What Celiac Disease and COVID-19 Have Taught Me About 'Adaptive Stress'

Reading now: 887

I once read an article that said the average person with celiac disease is taking their condition too seriously. I remember he proudly admitted to plucking breadcrumbs off of his salad and said that doing this is “totally fine” if you have celiac disease.

He also wrote that although gluten may not be killing us, stress most certainly is. In response, other commenters said that misinformation like this harms our community — and in my opinion, they’re not wrong.

Reading his words also reminded me of the people who expressed similar sentiments toward COVID-19 throughout the pandemic. My own housemates accused me of overreacting when I protested their coming home knowingly infected with the then-poorly-understood virus.
