College, Social Life, Gluten Free as a Celiac❤️


If you know anyone that is going off to college as a celiac... they NEED to hear this. And if you are like me and just wonder what college life looks like as a celiac, You have to go hear how Clayton rocks college and stays 100% gluten free!

In this episode, Clayton @CollegeAndCeliac, is going to share some tips that he has learned in his college journey so far. He talks about how to eat safely in the dorms, how to still participate in sports & exercise while having celiac disease, and the importance of choosing the right doctor who listens and is open minded on making sure you get the best treatment possible!!!

What I like most about Clayton's insights are how he shares an extremely frustrating and sometimes embarrassing situation along with some solutions... eating gluten free socially and how to best explain to others about why we eat the way we do 😍

As you know, educating yourself is a lifelong journey and if we want to live the healthiest and best life that we can, then it is up to us to stay up to date with the latest information. 📚

00:02:58.519 --> 00:03:04.489 sophomore in college this upcoming fall

00:03:01.040 --> 00:03:08.000 semester I was first diagnosed my senior

00:03:04.489 --> 00:03:11.510 year of high school so only about two

00:03:08.000 --> 00:03:13.489 years being gluten-free 100% but I'm

00:03:11.510 --> 00:03:15.889 here and I really thought that you know

00:03:13.489 --> 00:03:17.690 the thing that got me through after I

00:03:15.889 --> 00:03:19.220 was diagnosed was everyone else

00:03:17.690 --> 00:03:21.230 their story and I thought if I could

00:03:19.220 --> 00:03:23.150 give back to people that were once in my

00:03:21.230 --> 00:03:24.650 shoes by sharing my story I thought we

00:03:23.150 --> 00:03:27.170 know what better way to give back and

00:03:24.650 --> 00:03:29.620 just create this platform in this thing

00:03:27.170 --> 00:03:31.280 that I can share with other people I

00:03:29.620 --> 00:03:33.200 love that about you

00:03:31.280 --> 00:03:35.510 incredible because you're like in it

00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:37.570 you're in it right now in college so

00:03:40.340 --> 00:03:42.950 in present tense that's the thing I'm

00:03:41.660 --> 00:03:44.510 always in present tense because it's

00:03:42.950 --> 00:03:46.520 always just coming at me right now you

00:03:44.510 --> 00:03:54.290 know yeah you're like this is what you

00:03:46.520 --> 00:03:55.610 don't do so you help everyone else

00:03:54.290 --> 00:04:00.500 eliminate though what you're not

00:03:55.610 --> 00:04:02.930 supposed to do which is blessing good

00:04:00.500 --> 00:04:05.960 okay so you've been gluten-free for two

00:04:02.930 --> 00:04:08.960 years now yes how is that getting that

00:04:05.960 --> 00:04:10.520 diagnosis um I actually had a memory

00:04:08.960 --> 00:04:12.290 pop-up just the other day it's been

00:04:10.520 --> 00:04:14.810 about two years since my symptoms really

00:04:12.290 --> 00:04:18.140 kind of turned on I was at a basketball

00:04:14.810 --> 00:04:20.180 camp and I just thought it was a stomach

00:04:18.140 --> 00:04:21.620 flu you know I was just down I wasn't

00:04:20.180 --> 00:04:24.050 performing as well and I you know my

00:04:21.620 --> 00:04:26.240 stomach just hurt it was sick whatever

00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:27.980 and then you know after a few months

00:04:26.240 --> 00:04:30.620 went by in the stomach flu I thought

00:04:27.980 --> 00:04:34.310 never went away I was like Oh something

00:04:30.620 --> 00:04:36.169 is really wrong so you know once we got

00:04:34.310 --> 00:04:38.030 the diagnosis it was you know I'm very

00:04:36.169 --> 00:04:39.590 blessed because it was much faster than

00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:41.960 a lot of people's you know you hear the

00:04:39.590 --> 00:04:44.390 horror stories up good you know being 10

00:04:41.960 --> 00:04:46.040 15 20 years that they go and they're

00:04:44.390 --> 00:04:47.660 sick and they're you know just having a

00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:49.460 terrible time for a really long time but

00:04:47.660 --> 00:04:51.500 I was you know one of the lucky ones I

00:04:49.460 --> 00:04:53.600 say because it only took a few months

00:04:51.500 --> 00:04:55.130 and whenever we actually went in for

00:04:53.600 --> 00:04:57.260 like the preliminary testings

00:04:55.130 --> 00:04:59.300 celiac screening was on the preliminary

00:04:57.260 --> 00:05:01.130 testing so I'm very thankful for that

00:04:59.300 --> 00:05:04.640 and that I had a doctor that was

00:05:01.130 --> 00:05:06.770 educated you know what he was doing that

00:05:04.640 --> 00:05:09.590 is incredible yeah you don't hear that

00:05:06.770 --> 00:05:13.210 very often no exactly the reverse we're

00:05:09.590 --> 00:05:16.940 like pleading can you just test that

00:05:13.210 --> 00:05:19.160 that is huge so has that doctor that you

00:05:16.940 --> 00:05:21.140 went to has he seen a lot of people with

00:05:19.160 --> 00:05:23.060 celiac disease is that how or it was

00:05:21.140 --> 00:05:24.880 just his panel that he normally does and

00:05:23.060 --> 00:05:26.320 he I feel like there's a little bit of

00:05:24.880 --> 00:05:28.330 fact that I had some of the you know

00:05:26.320 --> 00:05:30.700 very generic symptoms you know it was

00:05:28.330 --> 00:05:32.740 after I would eat it would be you know

00:05:30.700 --> 00:05:35.320 the stomach issues the bathroom issues

00:05:32.740 --> 00:05:38.770 those things but I feel like he

00:05:35.320 --> 00:05:40.750 definitely is I was lucky that my doctor

00:05:38.770 --> 00:05:43.030 was one of those that tries to stay on

00:05:40.750 --> 00:05:45.100 trend if that makes any sense like yeah

00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:46.780 every time we would talk to him you know

00:05:45.100 --> 00:05:48.580 even if it was just a checkup he would

00:05:46.780 --> 00:05:50.290 say well in this you know I read this

00:05:48.580 --> 00:05:51.850 the other day or I heard about this the

00:05:50.290 --> 00:05:53.950 other day from one of my doctor friends

00:05:51.850 --> 00:05:55.390 so you know the more that I feel like

00:05:53.950 --> 00:05:56.230 you have a doctor that's kind of you

00:05:55.390 --> 00:05:58.180 know in the loop

00:05:56.230 --> 00:06:00.730 in the medical world and on top of

00:05:58.180 --> 00:06:02.650 things that you know it might be easier

00:06:00.730 --> 00:06:04.570 for you to advocate for yourself too

00:06:02.650 --> 00:06:06.910 because if they you know if it's on

00:06:04.570 --> 00:06:09.730 their radar then it's kind of easier to

00:06:06.910 --> 00:06:11.050 get it figured out that is really good

00:06:09.730 --> 00:06:12.730 and that's a really good point to bring

00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:14.080 up I know that there's a lot of people

00:06:12.730 --> 00:06:15.850 who feel really frustrated with their

00:06:14.080 --> 00:06:18.340 doctors but doing some research

00:06:15.850 --> 00:06:20.050 beforehand finding a younger doctor may

00:06:18.340 --> 00:06:23.800 be in your benefit or one that's willing

00:06:20.050 --> 00:06:25.960 to learn and grow and listen I work for

00:06:23.800 --> 00:06:27.640 an OBGYN and I'm like I have the best

00:06:25.960 --> 00:06:29.440 doctor that I work for because he's a

00:06:27.640 --> 00:06:31.300 listener and I'm like you're not gonna

00:06:29.440 --> 00:06:32.950 find a better OB because he will sit

00:06:31.300 --> 00:06:35.740 down and listen to you that's it you

00:06:32.950 --> 00:06:39.190 know yes I think that that's what it's

00:06:35.740 --> 00:06:41.470 so many um we get a runaround because of

00:06:39.190 --> 00:06:44.560 that fact that some are just fixed in

00:06:41.470 --> 00:06:47.530 more of an older traditional way and no

00:06:44.560 --> 00:06:51.580 celiac disease is up and coming and more

00:06:47.530 --> 00:06:53.530 con than ever so awesome okay so that

00:06:51.580 --> 00:06:56.010 means you were you said you were your

00:06:53.530 --> 00:06:58.870 senior year or is it easier

00:06:56.010 --> 00:07:04.030 in between junior and senior year yeah

00:06:58.870 --> 00:07:08.860 it was in the summer time okay so then

00:07:04.030 --> 00:07:10.570 you play basketball yes I do and so tell

00:07:08.860 --> 00:07:12.100 me like what emotions were going where

00:07:10.570 --> 00:07:16.060 you going through when you got diagnosed

00:07:12.100 --> 00:07:17.050 it was super super challenging and so

00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:19.600 frustrating

00:07:17.050 --> 00:07:21.700 because of the fact I was in summer

00:07:19.600 --> 00:07:23.290 league so you know summertime for

00:07:21.700 --> 00:07:25.000 basketball players is whenever you're

00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:26.800 you know doing all your fundamental

00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:28.180 workouts and lifting weights and running

00:07:26.800 --> 00:07:29.260 and it's just your time that you just

00:07:28.180 --> 00:07:32.380 focus on getting better

00:07:29.260 --> 00:07:34.240 for the winter season so it was so

00:07:32.380 --> 00:07:35.830 challenging to you know show up to

00:07:34.240 --> 00:07:38.020 practice you know I still showed up

00:07:35.830 --> 00:07:40.420 every day but I was getting to the point

00:07:38.020 --> 00:07:41.680 where I would show up and you know my

00:07:40.420 --> 00:07:43.950 body just want to let me participate

00:07:41.680 --> 00:07:46.330 like I would try every day I would try

00:07:43.950 --> 00:07:48.010 it was pretty bad there for a while too

00:07:46.330 --> 00:07:50.440 and this is kind of embarrassing but

00:07:48.010 --> 00:07:53.500 after my diagnosis you know it takes a

00:07:50.440 --> 00:07:55.420 while to heal but you know I was like

00:07:53.500 --> 00:07:57.550 well now I know the issue so I'm gonna

00:07:55.420 --> 00:07:59.440 be better right away right so I you know

00:07:57.550 --> 00:08:01.450 started going full force of practice and

00:07:59.440 --> 00:08:03.850 stuff and then I would just be you know

00:08:01.450 --> 00:08:05.770 basically just dry keeping and running

00:08:03.850 --> 00:08:08.880 and just oh it's bad there for a while

00:08:05.770 --> 00:08:11.320 but I really think that you know those

00:08:08.880 --> 00:08:13.630 curveballs that a kind of face kind of

00:08:11.320 --> 00:08:17.110 helped me you know navigate and kind of

00:08:13.630 --> 00:08:19.450 learn about my body and the healing

00:08:17.110 --> 00:08:20.890 process and it kind of tell me to do

00:08:19.450 --> 00:08:22.120 more research on my own about the

00:08:20.890 --> 00:08:24.220 disease than what my doctor and

00:08:22.120 --> 00:08:25.630 dietician was telling me and I think

00:08:24.220 --> 00:08:28.060 that's important for a lot of people to

00:08:25.630 --> 00:08:29.620 kind of you know share your story and

00:08:28.060 --> 00:08:31.480 hear other people's stories because I

00:08:29.620 --> 00:08:33.820 feel like everyone's so different in the

00:08:31.480 --> 00:08:36.340 spectrum of celiac disease is so

00:08:33.820 --> 00:08:38.380 different for everybody because you know

00:08:36.340 --> 00:08:41.530 some people the way my doctor put it to

00:08:38.380 --> 00:08:43.120 me he acted like internally it would

00:08:41.530 --> 00:08:44.470 take longer to heal but I didn't realize

00:08:43.120 --> 00:08:48.130 that I would still be having symptoms

00:08:44.470 --> 00:08:50.980 for a long time and that's frustrating

00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:59.050 because you're like ah I'm doing

00:08:50.980 --> 00:09:01.240 supposed to be doing yeah okay so how is

00:08:59.050 --> 00:09:04.750 it socially I mean that's like that's a

00:09:01.240 --> 00:09:07.030 huge time in your life okay so socially

00:09:04.750 --> 00:09:09.340 it is a challenge because of the fact

00:09:07.030 --> 00:09:10.720 that not everyone knows about celiac

00:09:09.340 --> 00:09:13.840 disease yet and it doesn't have as much

00:09:10.720 --> 00:09:15.610 awareness and but I think advocating for

00:09:13.840 --> 00:09:17.080 yourself and just you know kind of

00:09:15.610 --> 00:09:19.420 having that sit-down conversation with

00:09:17.080 --> 00:09:22.660 your friends like this is what it is

00:09:19.420 --> 00:09:24.190 this is what I can and can't do be

00:09:22.660 --> 00:09:26.440 patient with me please you know those

00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:27.850 type of things are so important and then

00:09:26.440 --> 00:09:30.130 it makes social situation that much

00:09:27.850 --> 00:09:31.750 easier to navigate because if they're

00:09:30.130 --> 00:09:33.880 you know informed about it they can

00:09:31.750 --> 00:09:36.130 actually advocate for you when you're

00:09:33.880 --> 00:09:36.860 not around so there's been so many times

00:09:36.130 --> 00:09:41.360 when I'm at

00:09:36.860 --> 00:09:43.430 or something in all order and I'm so bad

00:09:41.360 --> 00:09:45.080 and this is something that I need to get

00:09:43.430 --> 00:09:47.060 way better about but it I'm bad about

00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:48.950 always telling them I have a gluten

00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:50.900 allergy you know it's just easy to say

00:09:48.950 --> 00:09:52.520 allergy right then give me the whole

00:09:50.900 --> 00:09:54.980 spiel but sometimes I'll just ordered

00:09:52.520 --> 00:09:56.510 the gluten-free option and not even add

00:09:54.980 --> 00:09:58.730 that little bit because we're actually

00:09:56.510 --> 00:09:59.390 whenever I was on vacation a few months

00:09:58.730 --> 00:10:02.300 ago

00:09:59.390 --> 00:10:04.130 you know I ordered and then my friend

00:10:02.300 --> 00:10:06.020 looks at me and then he looks at the

00:10:04.130 --> 00:10:11.120 waiter and he goes and he has a gluten

00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:14.180 allergy and by the way that's important

00:10:11.120 --> 00:10:16.130 and they wrote so it's just finding

00:10:14.180 --> 00:10:17.720 those friends that you know are super

00:10:16.130 --> 00:10:20.180 concerned about your needs and your

00:10:17.720 --> 00:10:21.230 safety and your health is so important

00:10:20.180 --> 00:10:27.590 and that's one thing that I try to

00:10:21.230 --> 00:10:29.510 advocate on top is that yes that is huge

00:10:27.590 --> 00:10:31.640 and I think wow that's really impressive

00:10:29.510 --> 00:10:33.860 because I feel and this is totally

00:10:31.640 --> 00:10:36.080 stereotyping here but I feel like for

00:10:33.860 --> 00:10:38.600 for guys it's a lot different to like

00:10:36.080 --> 00:10:40.970 sit down and have a discussion or be

00:10:38.600 --> 00:10:45.200 like hey these are my feelings like

00:10:40.970 --> 00:10:47.000 really it's just not as common yeah I

00:10:45.200 --> 00:10:49.310 think that's wonderful that you have

00:10:47.000 --> 00:10:51.530 friends that you can be that way with

00:10:49.310 --> 00:10:53.120 yeah yeah and it's not and it doesn't

00:10:51.530 --> 00:10:54.980 always go like that I'll just be honest

00:10:53.120 --> 00:10:58.760 cuz like especially whenever I first

00:10:54.980 --> 00:11:01.400 like got on campus as a college

00:10:58.760 --> 00:11:04.460 basketball player I didn't even tell my

00:11:01.400 --> 00:11:07.070 coach that I had any issues until the

00:11:04.460 --> 00:11:08.870 day of move in whenever he came down and

00:11:07.070 --> 00:11:11.120 he was like oh I'm so glad to hear bla

00:11:08.870 --> 00:11:13.130 bla I hope you get moved in and he's

00:11:11.120 --> 00:11:15.620 like we're gonna go eat later bla bla

00:11:13.130 --> 00:11:16.970 bla and I was like well actually I meant

00:11:15.620 --> 00:11:19.730 to tell you this awhile ago

00:11:16.970 --> 00:11:22.520 but here's the thing so I don't always

00:11:19.730 --> 00:11:24.470 do it the way I should because I think

00:11:22.520 --> 00:11:26.630 you're right I think guys and that's one

00:11:24.470 --> 00:11:28.760 thing I do struggle with is I want to

00:11:26.630 --> 00:11:30.770 just you know act like nothing's wrong

00:11:28.760 --> 00:11:33.590 and I don't have issues and I don't have

00:11:30.770 --> 00:11:35.150 to be different than other people but

00:11:33.590 --> 00:11:36.530 it's so important to have those

00:11:35.150 --> 00:11:38.390 conversations and to make that

00:11:36.530 --> 00:11:41.600 connection and kind of the word I use

00:11:38.390 --> 00:11:42.920 kind of get over yourself and just do it

00:11:41.600 --> 00:11:45.560 because it's for your own good

00:11:42.920 --> 00:11:49.070 is one of those things right yeah you

00:11:45.560 --> 00:11:50.270 can't you can't not bring this up yes

00:11:49.070 --> 00:11:52.670 yeah to some

00:11:50.270 --> 00:11:56.240 you're gonna be with all the time like

00:11:52.670 --> 00:11:57.710 your basketball coach yes so hey we've

00:11:56.240 --> 00:11:59.720 kind of transition into your college

00:11:57.710 --> 00:12:01.580 life now now how hard was it we have a

00:11:59.720 --> 00:12:04.070 lot of moms out there listening to this

00:12:01.580 --> 00:12:06.740 today and I want to know how hard was it

00:12:04.070 --> 00:12:08.690 for your mom to send you away to college

00:12:06.740 --> 00:12:13.190 and not like he'd be right closer I had

00:12:08.690 --> 00:12:14.840 a community college Oh mom I mean for

00:12:13.190 --> 00:12:16.400 the most part she was great I will say

00:12:14.840 --> 00:12:20.180 that she was great about the whole thing

00:12:16.400 --> 00:12:22.280 she definitely worried a lot in the you

00:12:20.180 --> 00:12:24.830 know in the weeks right after my

00:12:22.280 --> 00:12:27.470 diagnosis I think and I've heard this

00:12:24.830 --> 00:12:28.700 from a lot of moms a lot of people have

00:12:27.470 --> 00:12:30.770 you know reached out to me with this

00:12:28.700 --> 00:12:34.030 exact same issue and I was so shocked I

00:12:30.770 --> 00:12:37.250 figured it just of me and my mom thing

00:12:34.030 --> 00:12:39.200 mom and I were bloody headed so bad

00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:41.480 after my diagnosis it was kind of

00:12:39.200 --> 00:12:43.190 ridiculous it was just you know just the

00:12:41.480 --> 00:12:45.710 fact that I was angry at the world a

00:12:43.190 --> 00:12:47.510 little bit and she was frustrated but

00:12:45.710 --> 00:12:49.850 more than anything she just wanted you

00:12:47.510 --> 00:12:51.890 know to take the pain away and to make

00:12:49.850 --> 00:12:54.470 me not you know make me not have any

00:12:51.890 --> 00:12:57.140 issues so bad and you know all these

00:12:54.470 --> 00:12:58.430 emotions were flying around because I

00:12:57.140 --> 00:13:01.130 remember one time we were in the kitchen

00:12:58.430 --> 00:13:02.780 and I was like eating I don't know my

00:13:01.130 --> 00:13:05.540 fifth bowl of Cheerios or something of

00:13:02.780 --> 00:13:07.100 the day she was like asking me like what

00:13:05.540 --> 00:13:12.830 I wanted to eat I'm just like I don't

00:13:07.100 --> 00:13:15.530 know what I can we were just going at it

00:13:12.830 --> 00:13:17.480 but you know I think some of that was

00:13:15.530 --> 00:13:19.970 actually kind of healthy in navigating

00:13:17.480 --> 00:13:21.680 the relationship between you know your

00:13:19.970 --> 00:13:23.170 parents and celiac disease are you

00:13:21.680 --> 00:13:25.610 having a child with celiac disease

00:13:23.170 --> 00:13:27.290 because you know after we had those

00:13:25.610 --> 00:13:30.020 conversations and did that research

00:13:27.290 --> 00:13:31.550 together I think she was a lot more okay

00:13:30.020 --> 00:13:33.710 sending me away to college because she

00:13:31.550 --> 00:13:35.930 knew I was gonna stick to my diet she

00:13:33.710 --> 00:13:38.470 was gonna try to do what was best for me

00:13:35.930 --> 00:13:40.940 and my health so I think she wasn't as

00:13:38.470 --> 00:13:43.400 president swimming away because you know

00:13:40.940 --> 00:13:45.920 she had seen us go through all of that

00:13:43.400 --> 00:13:47.690 together but at the same time she

00:13:45.920 --> 00:13:49.190 definitely worried a lot I will I won't

00:13:47.690 --> 00:13:52.190 let her off the line she definitely did

00:13:49.190 --> 00:13:53.630 worry a lot I'd get lots of texts and

00:13:52.190 --> 00:13:55.460 lots of phone calls about what I was

00:13:53.630 --> 00:13:58.520 eating and how I was eating and stuff

00:13:55.460 --> 00:14:00.200 like that and I bet she's so proud of

00:13:58.520 --> 00:14:02.630 you now seeing what you're doing

00:14:00.200 --> 00:14:04.670 platform and everything I just I think

00:14:02.630 --> 00:14:07.970 that that is like proud mom moment to

00:14:04.670 --> 00:14:10.700 the fullest and you failed to mention

00:14:07.970 --> 00:14:13.670 that like you're a cook you are like a

00:14:10.700 --> 00:14:16.730 little rough here so that helps a lot

00:14:13.670 --> 00:14:18.199 you love to cook so that's because we

00:14:16.730 --> 00:14:22.370 all know that we have to we have to

00:14:18.199 --> 00:14:25.880 learn that skill yeah if you because you

00:14:22.370 --> 00:14:27.290 have to learn to yes it kind of goes

00:14:25.880 --> 00:14:29.360 hand in hand so I think that that's

00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:33.110 incredible so do you have any tips for

00:14:29.360 --> 00:14:36.139 any any other moms out there I would

00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:40.760 definitely say just probably you know

00:14:36.139 --> 00:14:42.980 teach your child to cook a few meals you

00:14:40.760 --> 00:14:44.420 know don't make it like to the point

00:14:42.980 --> 00:14:45.889 where you're just like here I'm gonna

00:14:44.420 --> 00:14:47.480 teach you this but try to just be like

00:14:45.889 --> 00:14:49.250 have them around the kitchen or

00:14:47.480 --> 00:14:51.199 something and so they kind of pick up on

00:14:49.250 --> 00:14:52.519 those things because I know that's the

00:14:51.199 --> 00:14:54.320 thing with me just being around the

00:14:52.519 --> 00:14:56.300 kitchen a lot when like you know mom or

00:14:54.320 --> 00:14:58.130 dad would be cooking that I picked up

00:14:56.300 --> 00:15:00.529 that's where I learned to cook was just

00:14:58.130 --> 00:15:02.810 watching them through the years so just

00:15:00.529 --> 00:15:04.760 you know kind of showing them how to

00:15:02.810 --> 00:15:06.589 cook some staple meals or whatever it

00:15:04.760 --> 00:15:09.019 may be what you know cooking the meals

00:15:06.589 --> 00:15:10.760 that they like that would be one of the

00:15:09.019 --> 00:15:13.550 tips and the other tip would definitely

00:15:10.760 --> 00:15:15.649 just don't worry too much because at the

00:15:13.550 --> 00:15:17.750 end of the day like we're gonna you know

00:15:15.649 --> 00:15:18.980 especially college students like we're

00:15:17.750 --> 00:15:20.540 getting to that point where we're

00:15:18.980 --> 00:15:23.870 learning how important making our own

00:15:20.540 --> 00:15:25.610 decisions are so and I actually had

00:15:23.870 --> 00:15:28.910 someone reach out to me one time that

00:15:25.610 --> 00:15:30.560 said you know her child was to the point

00:15:28.910 --> 00:15:32.390 where he was so frustrated that he was

00:15:30.560 --> 00:15:34.399 just you know after he moved out he was

00:15:32.390 --> 00:15:36.649 gonna not even gluten-free anymore and

00:15:34.399 --> 00:15:39.470 this and that and what I finally had to

00:15:36.649 --> 00:15:41.000 you know tell her was he will get to the

00:15:39.470 --> 00:15:42.920 point where he kind of goes through the

00:15:41.000 --> 00:15:45.110 school of hard knocks and if he choose

00:15:42.920 --> 00:15:46.850 to do that he'll definitely wish he had

00:15:45.110 --> 00:15:49.459 no because he's gonna go through all the

00:15:46.850 --> 00:15:52.430 pain and all the suffering of eating you

00:15:49.459 --> 00:15:54.019 know gluten when he shouldn't be and I

00:15:52.430 --> 00:15:57.470 feel like that's you know with any

00:15:54.019 --> 00:15:59.449 situation it's not just celiac students

00:15:57.470 --> 00:16:02.240 eating gluten it's you know making bad

00:15:59.449 --> 00:16:04.100 choices in there too absolutely

00:16:02.240 --> 00:16:06.019 absolutely and there's even some that

00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:09.440 don't have physical symptoms and so they

00:16:06.019 --> 00:16:12.079 don't know but over time it's gonna

00:16:09.440 --> 00:16:13.250 catch up to them because we know how

00:16:12.079 --> 00:16:15.560 autoimmune disease

00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:17.360 his work and once you have one you're

00:16:15.560 --> 00:16:20.000 very susceptible to having many others

00:16:17.360 --> 00:16:22.640 and so it it is a school of hard knocks

00:16:20.000 --> 00:16:24.200 and we all have to make our own choices

00:16:22.640 --> 00:16:26.240 you know something that I try to do with

00:16:24.200 --> 00:16:28.490 my daughter Chanel when she was first

00:16:26.240 --> 00:16:31.780 diagnosed I mean it was hard she was

00:16:28.490 --> 00:16:35.600 two-and-a-half and I just remember I

00:16:31.780 --> 00:16:36.620 just kept giving her options and people

00:16:35.600 --> 00:16:38.120 were like how are you gonna give her an

00:16:36.620 --> 00:16:41.690 option I'm like because you can kind of

00:16:38.120 --> 00:16:44.150 do a mind trick game and I would say

00:16:41.690 --> 00:16:46.370 well you can you can eat this but you're

00:16:44.150 --> 00:16:48.830 probably gonna be really sick or you're

00:16:46.370 --> 00:16:51.320 gonna throw up after it it's your choice

00:16:48.830 --> 00:16:53.930 and let me tell you because it was her

00:16:51.320 --> 00:16:56.150 choice she never fought me on it and she

00:16:53.930 --> 00:16:58.400 appreciated that fact and I think that

00:16:56.150 --> 00:17:01.430 we all need that agency I don't care if

00:16:58.400 --> 00:17:04.540 you're 2 or you're 92 like we all need

00:17:01.430 --> 00:17:06.920 to feel like this is our choice and so

00:17:04.540 --> 00:17:08.449 cutting that that's hard as a parent oh

00:17:06.920 --> 00:17:10.220 yeah I can tell you from my standpoint

00:17:08.449 --> 00:17:12.620 like because if my daughter would have

00:17:10.220 --> 00:17:14.990 said oh I'm just gonna eat it I really

00:17:12.620 --> 00:17:17.329 know what I was I probably would have

00:17:14.990 --> 00:17:19.430 just helped her pick up her throw up and

00:17:17.329 --> 00:17:22.100 we would learn the next time you know

00:17:19.430 --> 00:17:24.290 like we all have to learn and so it's

00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:25.910 just sometimes you have to just let you

00:17:24.290 --> 00:17:28.010 fly and so especially going off to

00:17:25.910 --> 00:17:29.480 college I I can't imagine what that was

00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:31.190 like for your mom or for others out

00:17:29.480 --> 00:17:37.070 there I'm gonna be there probably sooner

00:17:31.190 --> 00:17:39.290 that I really feel yes okay so you also

00:17:37.070 --> 00:17:40.850 mentioned that you kind of did some

00:17:39.290 --> 00:17:42.290 research on your own you had a doctor

00:17:40.850 --> 00:17:43.940 you had a dietitian which was wonderful

00:17:42.290 --> 00:17:45.800 for you but you needed to do some

00:17:43.940 --> 00:17:48.080 research on your own what were some

00:17:45.800 --> 00:17:50.930 resources or organizations that helped

00:17:48.080 --> 00:17:52.910 you along that way for sure I'm one of

00:17:50.930 --> 00:17:57.140 the organizations that I first got in

00:17:52.910 --> 00:17:59.120 contact with was the stepping on celiac

00:17:57.140 --> 00:18:01.850 group out of Kansas City and so what

00:17:59.120 --> 00:18:05.060 they are they're a group that was formed

00:18:01.850 --> 00:18:06.200 I think three years ago now I probably

00:18:05.060 --> 00:18:09.340 should have got all the facts in front

00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:11.540 of me before I came on here

00:18:09.340 --> 00:18:14.450 so what it was is a group of moms

00:18:11.540 --> 00:18:16.310 basically and you know very similar to

00:18:14.450 --> 00:18:17.960 every mom that has a child diagnosed

00:18:16.310 --> 00:18:19.760 with celiac disease they just want to

00:18:17.960 --> 00:18:21.560 help I just want to find a cure they

00:18:19.760 --> 00:18:22.860 just want to take the pain away they

00:18:21.560 --> 00:18:25.770 just want to do whatever they can

00:18:22.860 --> 00:18:29.549 make it better when it was was a mom who

00:18:25.770 --> 00:18:31.710 you know form this 5k fundraiser to

00:18:29.549 --> 00:18:34.890 raise money for celiac disease but she

00:18:31.710 --> 00:18:36.570 didn't realize maybe she did but at the

00:18:34.890 --> 00:18:40.679 time what she was doing was creating

00:18:36.570 --> 00:18:42.299 this basically this community for people

00:18:40.679 --> 00:18:44.090 that have celiac disease or children

00:18:42.299 --> 00:18:46.620 with celiac disease to all come together

00:18:44.090 --> 00:18:49.679 for this fundraiser and into this huge

00:18:46.620 --> 00:18:51.720 event in Kansas City and theirs vendors

00:18:49.679 --> 00:18:53.820 and there's looting free food and it's

00:18:51.720 --> 00:18:56.640 just all these people can connect with

00:18:53.820 --> 00:18:59.400 each other and just having that space

00:18:56.640 --> 00:19:00.900 and having that community was huge for

00:18:59.400 --> 00:19:02.880 me especially you know after being

00:19:00.900 --> 00:19:05.640 diagnosed just a year ago is whenever I

00:19:02.880 --> 00:19:07.410 first got connected with them and

00:19:05.640 --> 00:19:09.720 actually what it was there was like a

00:19:07.410 --> 00:19:12.809 little handout and a gluten-free Bakery

00:19:09.720 --> 00:19:14.940 that was kind of local and so I picked

00:19:12.809 --> 00:19:17.190 it up not having any idea where it would

00:19:14.940 --> 00:19:19.230 take me in the next year and a half but

00:19:17.190 --> 00:19:21.059 I you know I looked them up on Facebook

00:19:19.230 --> 00:19:23.250 added them there and they were looking

00:19:21.059 --> 00:19:25.500 for a photographer and I do photography

00:19:23.250 --> 00:19:26.700 on the side so it's like you know reach

00:19:25.500 --> 00:19:28.559 out to them and I was like for sure I

00:19:26.700 --> 00:19:30.090 was like you know I'd love to shoot for

00:19:28.559 --> 00:19:33.299 you guys I'd love to help out whatever I

00:19:30.090 --> 00:19:35.790 can and so that was you know almost a

00:19:33.299 --> 00:19:37.679 year ago now on the fall and then I

00:19:35.790 --> 00:19:40.169 didn't realize that you know now I would

00:19:37.679 --> 00:19:42.450 be you know on the volunteer team that

00:19:40.169 --> 00:19:44.580 you know helps plan it and helps do all

00:19:42.450 --> 00:19:46.860 these other things so but really the

00:19:44.580 --> 00:19:49.110 biggest part about it was is just having

00:19:46.860 --> 00:19:50.730 that community and having that almost

00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:52.140 like a family that you know everybody

00:19:50.730 --> 00:19:54.299 has celiac disease and they all know

00:19:52.140 --> 00:19:56.070 where you're coming from so I feel like

00:19:54.299 --> 00:19:57.929 that made me so much more confident in

00:19:56.070 --> 00:19:59.400 it just knowing how many other people

00:19:57.929 --> 00:20:00.630 were out there and seeing these people

00:19:59.400 --> 00:20:02.910 face-to-face and hearing their

00:20:00.630 --> 00:20:05.549 challenges just made it so much easier

00:20:02.910 --> 00:20:06.540 than just doing it by yourself that is

00:20:05.549 --> 00:20:07.980 incredible

00:20:06.540 --> 00:20:09.660 you know you think like what are the

00:20:07.980 --> 00:20:11.610 chances that you're in that bakery and

00:20:09.660 --> 00:20:13.980 you saw that fire that day and it had

00:20:11.610 --> 00:20:15.660 that you know it's just exactly and if

00:20:13.980 --> 00:20:19.020 they needed a photographer like that's

00:20:15.660 --> 00:20:20.610 just that's incredible you were totally

00:20:19.020 --> 00:20:22.440 just meant to link up with them and I

00:20:20.610 --> 00:20:27.179 love that and I love when people are

00:20:22.440 --> 00:20:29.820 doing something about making change just

00:20:27.179 --> 00:20:34.770 not only their lives but to help others

00:20:29.820 --> 00:20:35.430 and I think that that's so crazy because

00:20:34.770 --> 00:20:37.500 from

00:20:35.430 --> 00:20:39.809 you know the first year it was just a 5k

00:20:37.500 --> 00:20:42.330 in Kansas City and this year it grew to

00:20:39.809 --> 00:20:43.590 three cities it was in Philadelphia and

00:20:42.330 --> 00:20:45.360 it's gonna be in Dallas and it's gonna

00:20:43.590 --> 00:20:47.430 be in Kansas City again this fall but

00:20:45.360 --> 00:20:48.960 it's just it's just growing and growing

00:20:47.430 --> 00:20:51.030 because there's so many people out there

00:20:48.960 --> 00:20:52.320 that want to have this event and to

00:20:51.030 --> 00:20:53.820 bring all these people together to raise

00:20:52.320 --> 00:20:55.559 money and especially awareness for

00:20:53.820 --> 00:20:57.540 celiac disease so it's so cool that I

00:20:55.559 --> 00:20:59.730 was able to be a part of it you know in

00:20:57.540 --> 00:21:02.070 the growing years so that's another

00:20:59.730 --> 00:21:04.320 thing that I'm super excited about that

00:21:02.070 --> 00:21:06.150 is awesome I love that we need one in

00:21:04.320 --> 00:21:09.410 California so make that one happen okay

00:21:06.150 --> 00:21:15.179 okay I'll show up with my posse

00:22:08.780 --> 00:22:12.000 [Music]

00:22:09.990 --> 00:22:14.940 let's talk about your getting into

00:22:12.000 --> 00:22:18.270 college and really break that process

00:22:14.940 --> 00:22:19.830 down as far as like who do you call who

00:22:18.270 --> 00:22:22.440 do you contact like how do you know if

00:22:19.830 --> 00:22:25.169 your school is celiac friendly or you

00:22:22.440 --> 00:22:26.730 know gluten free 100% or how what

00:22:25.169 --> 00:22:29.669 measures do you take what does that look

00:22:26.730 --> 00:22:33.240 like okay so going into college I

00:22:29.669 --> 00:22:35.940 actually had no idea how I was gonna do

00:22:33.240 --> 00:22:38.340 this I really didn't but when I got to

00:22:35.940 --> 00:22:40.799 campus the first person and it's a super

00:22:38.340 --> 00:22:42.779 great place to start almost every school

00:22:40.799 --> 00:22:45.570 has like a student life department or

00:22:42.779 --> 00:22:46.620 something very similar so I set up a

00:22:45.570 --> 00:22:50.130 meeting with the Director of Student

00:22:46.620 --> 00:22:50.640 Life and she put me you know semi in the

00:22:50.130 --> 00:22:52.470 right direction

00:22:50.640 --> 00:22:53.880 so I would you know have everybody

00:22:52.470 --> 00:22:56.789 that's going to college if you don't

00:22:53.880 --> 00:22:59.730 know where to start start there but then

00:22:56.789 --> 00:23:02.610 I quickly learned that especially for

00:22:59.730 --> 00:23:04.039 people with celiac disease a DA which

00:23:02.610 --> 00:23:08.039 chance for Americans with this

00:23:04.039 --> 00:23:09.870 Disability Act what that is is most

00:23:08.039 --> 00:23:12.059 college I think actually all college

00:23:09.870 --> 00:23:15.000 campuses have an ad a wreck

00:23:12.059 --> 00:23:16.980 so what their job is to do is just you

00:23:15.000 --> 00:23:18.149 know students with disabilities to make

00:23:16.980 --> 00:23:21.240 sure that they're getting the best

00:23:18.149 --> 00:23:23.010 college experience that came possible so

00:23:21.240 --> 00:23:26.279 just recently actually I think the last

00:23:23.010 --> 00:23:28.980 five years or less celiac disease has

00:23:26.279 --> 00:23:31.590 fallen under this category so now the

00:23:28.980 --> 00:23:33.750 rep on campus is there to also help me

00:23:31.590 --> 00:23:36.690 make sure that I have the best college

00:23:33.750 --> 00:23:39.330 experience and I do know I'm eating what

00:23:36.690 --> 00:23:41.070 I can and whatever it may look like so

00:23:39.330 --> 00:23:43.110 for me you know we sat down we had this

00:23:41.070 --> 00:23:45.510 meeting I was super lucky that my rep

00:23:43.110 --> 00:23:48.149 was pretty knowledgeable about celiac

00:23:45.510 --> 00:23:51.299 disease so what we decided you know and

00:23:48.149 --> 00:23:53.520 we create our own plan so what my plan

00:23:51.299 --> 00:23:54.899 looked like was I was set up to have a

00:23:53.520 --> 00:23:57.299 double room so I was gonna have a

00:23:54.899 --> 00:23:59.640 roommate we decided that would be since

00:23:57.299 --> 00:24:01.140 I'm very sensitive you know I get break

00:23:59.640 --> 00:24:03.330 out on my skin when I come in contact

00:24:01.140 --> 00:24:05.760 and I'm super too susceptible to cross

00:24:03.330 --> 00:24:09.120 contact so what we decided we would do

00:24:05.760 --> 00:24:11.970 is put me in a single room so I actually

00:24:09.120 --> 00:24:13.950 got my own room and then of course it

00:24:11.970 --> 00:24:16.970 was the expenses were cut because I was

00:24:13.950 --> 00:24:16.970 through the 88 plan

00:24:17.020 --> 00:24:23.260 was had a sit-down meeting with the food

00:24:19.840 --> 00:24:24.490 service company you know her and I we

00:24:23.260 --> 00:24:26.800 just explained it to them we're like

00:24:24.490 --> 00:24:28.120 this is what celiac disease is this is

00:24:26.800 --> 00:24:30.910 why it's so important this is what

00:24:28.120 --> 00:24:32.710 lutein is and then basically at the end

00:24:30.910 --> 00:24:34.000 of this meeting I just told them I was

00:24:32.710 --> 00:24:35.940 like so if you guys think you could

00:24:34.000 --> 00:24:39.460 provide food safe enough for me to eat

00:24:35.940 --> 00:24:41.020 and not be sick and you know eat out of

00:24:39.460 --> 00:24:42.460 this cafeteria everyday and what we

00:24:41.020 --> 00:24:44.380 decided was I actually probably

00:24:42.460 --> 00:24:45.940 shouldn't be eating there because they

00:24:44.380 --> 00:24:47.020 just didn't feel comfortable enough and

00:24:45.940 --> 00:24:49.210 they didn't feel like they had the

00:24:47.020 --> 00:24:51.820 resources to make sure that I was gonna

00:24:49.210 --> 00:24:54.700 be you know safe eating out of the

00:24:51.820 --> 00:24:57.220 cafeteria without getting sick so then

00:24:54.700 --> 00:24:59.290 the next step we did was they exempted

00:24:57.220 --> 00:25:01.059 me from the meal plan which you know

00:24:59.290 --> 00:25:02.770 it's very uncommon for freshmen because

00:25:01.059 --> 00:25:05.890 they almost all are on a freshman meal

00:25:02.770 --> 00:25:09.220 plan but through a TA we I became exempt

00:25:05.890 --> 00:25:13.240 on the meal plan and then from there the

00:25:09.220 --> 00:25:14.530 last thing was we set up this is kind of

00:25:13.240 --> 00:25:16.120 basically just a letter for every

00:25:14.530 --> 00:25:18.490 professor I have and what this letter

00:25:16.120 --> 00:25:21.640 says is you know it's addressed from the

00:25:18.490 --> 00:25:25.210 ATA rep on campus and then what it says

00:25:21.640 --> 00:25:27.700 is just I will be excused from classes

00:25:25.210 --> 00:25:29.710 if I'm symptomatic if I get gluten if

00:25:27.700 --> 00:25:31.390 I'm sick because Sicilia disease if I'm

00:25:29.710 --> 00:25:33.100 you know whatever if it's associated

00:25:31.390 --> 00:25:35.320 with that then I'll be exempt from class

00:25:33.100 --> 00:25:37.510 and all I have to do is give them this

00:25:35.320 --> 00:25:39.640 letter on the first day of classes and

00:25:37.510 --> 00:25:41.950 then from there just you know stay in

00:25:39.640 --> 00:25:43.390 good contact through email luckily

00:25:41.950 --> 00:25:46.570 enough I never missed class last

00:25:43.390 --> 00:25:48.340 semester because of being gluten so that

00:25:46.570 --> 00:25:49.690 was awesome of course but it wouldn't

00:25:48.340 --> 00:25:52.330 you know is definitely not without

00:25:49.690 --> 00:25:54.580 having this meeting with the ATA rep on

00:25:52.330 --> 00:25:56.920 campus and doing all these things to

00:25:54.580 --> 00:26:02.200 ensure that I will be taken care of

00:25:56.920 --> 00:26:06.580 oh I love that yeah actually the class

00:26:02.200 --> 00:26:09.730 that aired today we're recording this is

00:26:06.580 --> 00:26:12.910 a 504 plan that I've created with my

00:26:09.730 --> 00:26:15.070 kids school and I love that and it's

00:26:12.910 --> 00:26:17.080 like it's just wonderful to have people

00:26:15.070 --> 00:26:19.480 advocating for you and just feeling

00:26:17.080 --> 00:26:21.760 heard and like this is the process this

00:26:19.480 --> 00:26:24.010 is like the stepping stone to get to who

00:26:21.760 --> 00:26:26.610 you need to get to and like what a

00:26:24.010 --> 00:26:29.160 blessing and what a miracle and

00:26:26.610 --> 00:26:33.750 impressed you didn't utilize that you

00:26:29.160 --> 00:26:36.660 can skip class yeah freshmen I don't

00:26:33.750 --> 00:26:38.370 know if I want a bit now responsible it

00:26:36.660 --> 00:26:43.230 might have been sick during a final or

00:26:38.370 --> 00:26:44.790 something I don't know so bad if I miss

00:26:43.230 --> 00:26:47.220 class or something I'm like oh I'm gonna

00:26:44.790 --> 00:26:53.460 do something super important you are

00:26:47.220 --> 00:26:55.980 good good okay so that's awesome I love

00:26:53.460 --> 00:26:57.960 that you got to have your own single

00:26:55.980 --> 00:27:00.980 room I think that's huge and you didn't

00:26:57.960 --> 00:27:03.900 have to pay the price for that great

00:27:00.980 --> 00:27:06.000 protection that is that's good

00:27:03.900 --> 00:27:08.130 and I also loved when you were saying

00:27:06.000 --> 00:27:09.720 about the cafeteria they could have well

00:27:08.130 --> 00:27:11.429 said like oh yeah we'll make sure you

00:27:09.720 --> 00:27:12.870 know and then but can you really trust

00:27:11.429 --> 00:27:14.630 them that they were open enough to say

00:27:12.870 --> 00:27:17.820 you know what honestly we can't and we

00:27:14.630 --> 00:27:19.110 would way rather have honesty if you're

00:27:17.820 --> 00:27:22.559 a college out there we would way rather

00:27:19.110 --> 00:27:27.900 I wanted then to fake it right we can't

00:27:22.559 --> 00:27:29.669 take it you know every school is

00:27:27.900 --> 00:27:32.429 different so I go to a very small

00:27:29.669 --> 00:27:34.169 private school in Kansas so it's gonna

00:27:32.429 --> 00:27:35.970 look different everywhere you go cuz I

00:27:34.169 --> 00:27:37.530 know I've seen a few articles and stuff

00:27:35.970 --> 00:27:39.960 now that I'm kind of trying to submerge

00:27:37.530 --> 00:27:42.750 myself in this community where I can't

00:27:39.960 --> 00:27:45.030 remember a school up north Michigan one

00:27:42.750 --> 00:27:47.730 of those schools up there you know are

00:27:45.030 --> 00:27:50.400 making huge leaps and bounds to being

00:27:47.730 --> 00:27:52.110 able to provide for their students that

00:27:50.400 --> 00:27:54.450 have celiac disease and gluten free

00:27:52.110 --> 00:27:56.910 needs so it just depends on the school

00:27:54.450 --> 00:27:59.460 but I think you know if you are sending

00:27:56.910 --> 00:28:02.130 a child off that has celiac disease get

00:27:59.460 --> 00:28:03.600 in contact with your ad a rep get in

00:28:02.130 --> 00:28:05.700 contact with the food service whatever

00:28:03.600 --> 00:28:07.679 it may look like for you but there's

00:28:05.700 --> 00:28:09.510 definitely people on campus that know

00:28:07.679 --> 00:28:11.880 the answer it might just take some time

00:28:09.510 --> 00:28:13.770 finding that person that has the answer

00:28:11.880 --> 00:28:15.690 but they're definitely there they're

00:28:13.770 --> 00:28:17.220 definitely there to help so but

00:28:15.690 --> 00:28:18.990 definitely do your research and do your

00:28:17.220 --> 00:28:20.910 phone calls and emailing probably before

00:28:18.990 --> 00:28:23.190 classes start that's what I did and that

00:28:20.910 --> 00:28:26.160 made it way easier that's a good tip

00:28:23.190 --> 00:28:28.950 very good tip awesome okay so you

00:28:26.160 --> 00:28:29.610 mentioned that you play basketball yes I

00:28:28.950 --> 00:28:31.679 do

00:28:29.610 --> 00:28:34.640 so that is awesome but there's a lot of

00:28:31.679 --> 00:28:36.840 traveling that goes with that right

00:28:34.640 --> 00:28:38.610 that workout with your team I mean

00:28:36.840 --> 00:28:40.020 you're with a bunch of guys who are just

00:28:38.610 --> 00:28:41.280 like trying to make it to their next

00:28:40.020 --> 00:28:43.530 meal until the bus takes you wherever

00:28:41.280 --> 00:28:46.799 how do you prepare how do you handle

00:28:43.530 --> 00:28:49.200 situations like that um so you kind of

00:28:46.799 --> 00:28:51.570 have to just know where you're going so

00:28:49.200 --> 00:28:53.970 like if I knew we were playing in a big

00:28:51.570 --> 00:28:56.690 city then like I was gonna be okay with

00:28:53.970 --> 00:28:59.429 you know because we usually take bands

00:28:56.690 --> 00:29:01.020 instead of a big bus it just depends

00:28:59.429 --> 00:29:05.549 when where we're going or when we're

00:29:01.020 --> 00:29:07.020 going what it is whatever but uh if I

00:29:05.549 --> 00:29:09.090 didn't know where we were going I always

00:29:07.020 --> 00:29:10.919 keep staples in my backpack so like I

00:29:09.090 --> 00:29:13.860 always throw in like a peanut butter and

00:29:10.919 --> 00:29:16.650 honey sandwich or two or three and nine

00:29:13.860 --> 00:29:18.450 bars and then water like I always have

00:29:16.650 --> 00:29:20.730 that on me and that always there was

00:29:18.450 --> 00:29:22.770 never time that I didn't feel like I

00:29:20.730 --> 00:29:26.789 just you know absolutely needed to eat

00:29:22.770 --> 00:29:28.530 or whatever and having those staples in

00:29:26.789 --> 00:29:30.990 my backpack definitely made it way

00:29:28.530 --> 00:29:32.730 easier because if we did you know if the

00:29:30.990 --> 00:29:35.490 only place to stop is McDonald's I'm not

00:29:32.730 --> 00:29:36.659 gonna eat there I mean I guess I

00:29:35.490 --> 00:29:38.159 probably could have got a salad or

00:29:36.659 --> 00:29:43.169 something but I'm not gonna get a salad

00:29:38.159 --> 00:29:44.700 after a game so but I you know I would

00:29:43.169 --> 00:29:46.340 just eat with the team I just pull it

00:29:44.700 --> 00:29:49.080 out of my backpack I'd eat with the team

00:29:46.340 --> 00:29:51.270 and then I would be full enough by the

00:29:49.080 --> 00:29:53.520 time I got back to my dorm I would try

00:29:51.270 --> 00:29:55.620 to always have like you know a good meal

00:29:53.520 --> 00:29:57.539 like waiting for me when I got back that

00:29:55.620 --> 00:30:00.539 I could just pop in my microwave in

00:29:57.539 --> 00:30:02.309 after the game awesome

00:30:00.539 --> 00:30:04.230 yeah that's a big deal and then what

00:30:02.309 --> 00:30:05.730 about the other guys do they get it do

00:30:04.230 --> 00:30:08.880 you get do you do they give you some

00:30:05.730 --> 00:30:12.210 hard time they get it took them a while

00:30:08.880 --> 00:30:13.740 to kind of understand you know and it

00:30:12.210 --> 00:30:15.090 just depends on who your teammates are

00:30:13.740 --> 00:30:17.520 of course too because like one of my

00:30:15.090 --> 00:30:18.630 friends his mom has celiac disease one

00:30:17.520 --> 00:30:20.220 of my really good friends from the

00:30:18.630 --> 00:30:23.039 basketball team and he lives kind of

00:30:20.220 --> 00:30:24.840 close to our campus so you know it's

00:30:23.039 --> 00:30:27.840 kind of fun funny though because like I

00:30:24.840 --> 00:30:29.940 know I can go to their house I want

00:30:27.840 --> 00:30:32.490 because she is you know gluten free too

00:30:29.940 --> 00:30:33.659 so its you just never know who you're

00:30:32.490 --> 00:30:35.220 gonna run into and make those

00:30:33.659 --> 00:30:37.530 connections with because it's so fun

00:30:35.220 --> 00:30:40.020 just be able to you know go to his house

00:30:37.530 --> 00:30:41.820 whenever I want you know and hang out

00:30:40.020 --> 00:30:44.549 and whatever and I know that there will

00:30:41.820 --> 00:30:46.780 be food there for me to eat safely what

00:30:44.549 --> 00:30:50.860 a blessing I bet mom

00:30:46.780 --> 00:30:52.690 really happy to yeah that's really good

00:30:50.860 --> 00:30:55.120 okay so as a whole like how do you

00:30:52.690 --> 00:30:57.610 handle social situations off in college

00:30:55.120 --> 00:30:59.680 you like you go hang out with friends or

00:30:57.610 --> 00:31:02.170 there's a party or something and like

00:30:59.680 --> 00:31:06.850 how do you how do you handle those and

00:31:02.170 --> 00:31:10.180 do tell everyone first year um every

00:31:06.850 --> 00:31:11.610 social situation is different so like

00:31:10.180 --> 00:31:15.010 let's say if it's centered around food

00:31:11.610 --> 00:31:16.450 and if it's appropriate I don't always

00:31:15.010 --> 00:31:17.950 do this you know if it's a dinner or

00:31:16.450 --> 00:31:20.440 something of course I can't do this but

00:31:17.950 --> 00:31:22.780 if it's appropriate I'll go like 10 or

00:31:20.440 --> 00:31:24.160 15 minutes later after it starts because

00:31:22.780 --> 00:31:25.930 that's usually when they eat the food

00:31:24.160 --> 00:31:27.640 so I'll get there a little bit later and

00:31:25.930 --> 00:31:28.780 they'll be almost any eating so then

00:31:27.640 --> 00:31:31.480 it's not you know there's not as much

00:31:28.780 --> 00:31:33.640 pressure on me to eat with them or to

00:31:31.480 --> 00:31:35.500 try and find something to eat there so

00:31:33.640 --> 00:31:38.800 that just makes it easier on me to do it

00:31:35.500 --> 00:31:40.960 that way if it is centered around food

00:31:38.800 --> 00:31:42.880 then I usually you know try to get in

00:31:40.960 --> 00:31:44.530 contact with whoever it's planning it or

00:31:42.880 --> 00:31:45.550 like whatever group is sponsoring it and

00:31:44.530 --> 00:31:48.400 see if there's gonna be gluten-free

00:31:45.550 --> 00:31:50.110 options there and if there's not and you

00:31:48.400 --> 00:31:52.390 know I usually eat before I go with

00:31:50.110 --> 00:31:55.300 anyway I mean I say that but I could

00:31:52.390 --> 00:31:56.800 definitely eat two meals so it's not if

00:31:55.300 --> 00:32:00.220 they do or don't have food because I

00:31:56.800 --> 00:32:03.370 always eat beforehand yeah but like if

00:32:00.220 --> 00:32:05.500 it's like a party for example I'm not

00:32:03.370 --> 00:32:07.150 gonna sit down and explain celiac

00:32:05.500 --> 00:32:09.760 disease to every single person that like

00:32:07.150 --> 00:32:12.310 asked me to you know take a drink of

00:32:09.760 --> 00:32:14.230 something or like eat something like I'm

00:32:12.310 --> 00:32:17.080 just not going to when I go to parties

00:32:14.230 --> 00:32:20.200 I don't eat or drink anything I usually

00:32:17.080 --> 00:32:22.480 have my water with me and that's you

00:32:20.200 --> 00:32:23.970 know my go-to but it's super easy

00:32:22.480 --> 00:32:26.560 because I've learned there's other ways

00:32:23.970 --> 00:32:28.030 than just saying no cuz you're gonna run

00:32:26.560 --> 00:32:30.220 into those people that are like oh just

00:32:28.030 --> 00:32:31.960 take one drink just just come on it's

00:32:30.220 --> 00:32:34.270 not gonna hurt you hablo and literally

00:32:31.960 --> 00:32:39.160 they know like yeah it's gonna hurt me

00:32:34.270 --> 00:32:42.880 more than you even a man so some of the

00:32:39.160 --> 00:32:44.200 tools I use is like you know like oh you

00:32:42.880 --> 00:32:46.330 know you never know it's probably gonna

00:32:44.200 --> 00:32:48.790 be alcohol and their cuff anyway so I

00:32:46.330 --> 00:32:50.920 usually just say you know I'm the DD

00:32:48.790 --> 00:32:53.140 tonight like I'm the responsible one

00:32:50.920 --> 00:32:55.190 like I'm not like I have my water I'm

00:32:53.140 --> 00:32:57.649 good like stuff like that

00:32:55.190 --> 00:32:59.000 and a lot of times you know I've been I

00:32:57.649 --> 00:33:00.649 feel like I've been lucky because most

00:32:59.000 --> 00:33:01.850 of the situations I've been in just a

00:33:00.649 --> 00:33:05.720 simple no thank you

00:33:01.850 --> 00:33:06.919 works better than anything and yeah you

00:33:05.720 --> 00:33:08.570 know because a lot of times these

00:33:06.919 --> 00:33:09.980 situations are going to be you know

00:33:08.570 --> 00:33:11.539 there's going to be music and it's gonna

00:33:09.980 --> 00:33:12.500 be really loud or something there's

00:33:11.539 --> 00:33:15.440 gonna be a lot of people talking

00:33:12.500 --> 00:33:16.940 whatever you're not gonna sit there and

00:33:15.440 --> 00:33:18.409 explain to them what Luton is and what

00:33:16.940 --> 00:33:21.049 cross contact is and all this and that

00:33:18.409 --> 00:33:22.669 yeah it's just easier to say you know

00:34:39.050 --> 00:34:42.230 right now I don't have a platform where

00:34:41.089 --> 00:34:43.609 you can just like go and leave your

00:34:42.230 --> 00:34:47.149 email so right now I'm just working

00:34:43.609 --> 00:34:49.480 slowly through my Instagram page and my

00:34:47.149 --> 00:34:52.909 Instagram page is just collagen celiac

00:34:49.480 --> 00:34:55.069 simple easy you can find me there and

00:34:52.909 --> 00:34:57.020 like I tell everyone my dams are always

00:34:55.069 --> 00:34:59.119 open I love answering questions and

00:34:57.020 --> 00:35:00.420 talking to people so but yeah those are

00:34:59.119 --> 00:35:02.160 my two projects I'm working

00:35:00.420 --> 00:35:05.279 right now and I'm super excited about to

00:35:02.160 --> 00:35:06.809 help you know keep making these

00:35:05.279 --> 00:35:08.670 platforms in different ways to help

00:35:06.809 --> 00:35:11.460 college students and parents sending

00:35:08.670 --> 00:35:14.549 their child to college that is so

00:35:11.460 --> 00:35:15.990 important I love that because when we

00:35:14.549 --> 00:35:18.180 were diagnosed I'm like okay well what

00:35:15.990 --> 00:35:20.130 does that look like I I text everybody I

00:35:18.180 --> 00:35:22.230 knew that had like the a gluten-free or

00:35:20.130 --> 00:35:23.910 had celiac disease and I'm like or that

00:35:22.230 --> 00:35:25.980 knew someone if somebody like I'm just

00:35:23.910 --> 00:35:28.500 like you let me a picture of what your

00:35:25.980 --> 00:35:32.039 pantry looks like what's in your fridge

00:35:28.500 --> 00:35:36.029 like I just needed this see I don't know

00:35:32.039 --> 00:35:37.859 what this looks like so going out to

00:35:36.029 --> 00:35:39.869 college is already intimidating and

00:35:37.859 --> 00:35:41.400 scary as it is and then you throw on

00:35:39.869 --> 00:35:44.519 like okay now you need to be gluten free

00:35:41.400 --> 00:35:47.309 and it's like ah so having this visual

00:35:44.519 --> 00:35:49.109 in a youtube format is so perfect in a

00:35:47.309 --> 00:35:51.569 video and so that is really really

00:35:49.109 --> 00:35:54.170 exciting I hope you really remember to

00:35:51.569 --> 00:35:57.329 keep posting throughout the year cuz

00:35:54.170 --> 00:35:59.220 absolutely that's needed radar because

00:35:57.329 --> 00:36:01.559 you know and whenever I was you know

00:35:59.220 --> 00:36:03.089 kind of trying to think about my next

00:36:01.559 --> 00:36:05.759 project that I was going to try to work

00:36:03.089 --> 00:36:07.500 on YouTube was kind of the easy answer

00:36:05.759 --> 00:36:09.210 because I love you too you know everyone

00:36:07.500 --> 00:36:10.890 I've ever met in college they love you

00:36:09.210 --> 00:36:13.079 too everyone has their favorite youtuber

00:36:10.890 --> 00:36:15.750 I'm not saying I'm gonna be like the

00:36:13.079 --> 00:36:17.130 next youtuber out there but I thought it

00:36:15.750 --> 00:36:19.980 would be another really good platform to

00:36:17.130 --> 00:36:22.380 kind of use utilize and show people what

00:36:19.980 --> 00:36:26.160 life is being College and celiac for

00:36:22.380 --> 00:36:28.470 sure yes absolutely clean you're awesome

00:36:26.160 --> 00:36:31.079 we're having so many amazing things

00:36:28.470 --> 00:36:32.849 already and you're a sophomore imagine

00:36:31.079 --> 00:36:34.819 what is gonna transpire by your senior

00:36:32.849 --> 00:36:37.470 year and I hope so

00:36:34.819 --> 00:36:40.700 you're awesome so thank you for taking

00:36:37.470 --> 00:36:44.339 the time out of your busy to hop on

00:36:40.700 --> 00:36:45.990 spread more awareness for sending kids

00:36:44.339 --> 00:36:48.539 off to college because that's exactly

00:36:45.990 --> 00:36:50.640 what a lot of moms and dads are freaking

00:36:48.539 --> 00:36:52.740 out right now sending their child away

00:36:50.640 --> 00:36:56.039 to college with celiac disease so you

00:36:52.740 --> 00:36:58.500 are a perfect example of what we all

00:36:56.039 --> 00:37:00.230 hope our children will be when they go

00:36:58.500 --> 00:37:02.910 off to college

00:37:00.230 --> 00:37:04.380 okay do you have any takeaway do you

00:37:02.910 --> 00:37:07.380 have a takeaway that you're like I want

00:37:04.380 --> 00:37:08.130 everybody to know this um yeah I do

00:37:07.380 --> 00:37:10.950 actually

00:37:08.130 --> 00:37:12.370 um actually you told me to have one

00:37:10.950 --> 00:37:17.800 takeaway I actually kind of

00:37:12.370 --> 00:37:20.230 so we love toys but my takeaways would

00:37:17.800 --> 00:37:21.460 definitely be a positive attitude will

00:37:20.230 --> 00:37:22.090 get you further in life than you can

00:37:21.460 --> 00:37:23.800 even imagine

00:37:22.090 --> 00:37:25.810 because that's one thing that I try to

00:37:23.800 --> 00:37:28.450 be you know the most positive person in

00:37:25.810 --> 00:37:30.070 the room no matter where I go you know

00:37:28.450 --> 00:37:32.380 whether it be when I'm showing up to

00:37:30.070 --> 00:37:34.180 class showing up you know to practice

00:37:32.380 --> 00:37:36.310 and that's one thing that actually you

00:37:34.180 --> 00:37:37.540 know one of those feel-good moments that

00:37:36.310 --> 00:37:39.670 you don't even think about that you have

00:37:37.540 --> 00:37:42.310 with yourself and the end-of-the-year

00:37:39.670 --> 00:37:43.690 meeting with my coaches that's what my

00:37:42.310 --> 00:37:45.520 coaches had to say they're like you know

00:37:43.690 --> 00:37:47.380 what you were that guy that always had a

00:37:45.520 --> 00:37:49.840 smile on his face showed up ready to

00:37:47.380 --> 00:37:51.850 work and just you know had that positive

00:37:49.840 --> 00:37:53.650 attitude and you know just hearing them

00:37:51.850 --> 00:37:56.140 say that that kind of you know RIA you

00:37:53.650 --> 00:37:57.610 know Reese Park that in me to be that

00:37:56.140 --> 00:38:00.030 person and to be that positive attitude

00:37:57.610 --> 00:38:02.680 everywhere I go so that's so important

00:38:00.030 --> 00:38:04.870 the next one is just finding your why

00:38:02.680 --> 00:38:07.360 like when I get up in the morning like

00:38:04.870 --> 00:38:10.420 what is my why like what is my purpose

00:38:07.360 --> 00:38:13.240 you actually on a phone call ask me what

00:38:10.420 --> 00:38:15.220 my purpose was starting this brand in

00:38:13.240 --> 00:38:16.750 that honestly like I think about that a

00:38:15.220 --> 00:38:20.770 lot more than you probably even thought

00:38:16.750 --> 00:38:22.630 I would but I think about that and you

00:38:20.770 --> 00:38:24.220 know whatever whether it be it's

00:38:22.630 --> 00:38:25.690 different for everybody so you know my

00:38:24.220 --> 00:38:26.950 why is gonna be different than your life

00:38:25.690 --> 00:38:29.560 course and it's gonna be different for

00:38:26.950 --> 00:38:31.210 everybody but find your why that's so

00:38:29.560 --> 00:38:33.880 important and then the last takeaway I

00:38:31.210 --> 00:38:35.680 have is going back to n you know my

00:38:33.880 --> 00:38:38.380 athletic background have that you know

00:38:35.680 --> 00:38:39.940 quote unquote hungry mentality so like

00:38:38.380 --> 00:38:41.320 getting up in the morning and just

00:38:39.940 --> 00:38:44.080 telling yourself you know I'm gonna be

00:38:41.320 --> 00:38:46.030 the best today I'm gonna be the best and

00:38:44.080 --> 00:38:47.800 whatever I'm doing so like when I get up

00:38:46.030 --> 00:38:50.530 I'm like I'm gonna be you know the best

00:38:47.800 --> 00:38:52.450 I can be in class when I'm going and

00:38:50.530 --> 00:38:54.820 taking notes and doing whatever I'm

00:38:52.450 --> 00:38:56.560 gonna be the best you know I can for

00:38:54.820 --> 00:38:57.880 called celiac on this you know on this

00:38:56.560 --> 00:39:00.010 platform I'm going to be the best that I

00:38:57.880 --> 00:39:02.260 can be in sharing my story or whatever

00:39:00.010 --> 00:39:04.090 it may be so having that hungry

00:39:02.260 --> 00:39:05.380 mentality I think is super important too

00:39:04.090 --> 00:39:07.600 and that's just kind of my athletic

00:39:05.380 --> 00:39:09.640 background talking but I think those

00:39:07.600 --> 00:39:12.700 would be my takeaways for sure that's

00:39:09.640 --> 00:39:14.350 fabulous you are positive you're all the

00:39:12.700 --> 00:39:19.090 things that's incredible you are the

00:39:14.350 --> 00:39:20.890 best like that is such a good reminder

00:39:19.090 --> 00:39:23.140 and sheesh you've learned life lessons

00:39:20.890 --> 00:39:24.600 at such a young age and I think that's

00:39:23.140 --> 00:39:27.330 what comes with

00:39:24.600 --> 00:39:28.650 having trials there's Slingbox things

00:39:27.330 --> 00:39:30.840 that try to throw you away you know

00:39:28.650 --> 00:39:32.490 throw you down and just being able to

00:39:30.840 --> 00:39:34.200 come up and conquer it and you
