I work in a small office with 3 other people. I am extremely gluten intolerant, and recently one of my co-workers started the medi-fast diet, which is powdered food full of Gluten that fills up the air and makes me so incredibly ill. I have been open about how sick I am (without getting into the gory details) and we are trying things like opening the window, and getting an air purifier, but unless you are gluten free you don't understand the pain that i am suffering through! I feel like they don't take me seriously! What do I do? I can't just tell everyone to stop microwaving their lunch of choice (and they don't seem to be volunteering that route anyway). Any suggestions on how to handle this? I am so sick and totally at a loss :(
