I have Celiac Disease, and agree with you. I don't expect accommodation, but when people do carefully accommodate it feels like a huge gift and brings tears to my eyes! What makes me depressed is when people actually try, but then use an ingredient like soy sauce that I can't eat. Or they make a casserole and put bread crumbs on one half and not on the other, thinking that should be good enough. It's hard to face their dissapointment after they've made the effort, but it will make me sick to eat it.
