Boy, that's got to be hard! I don't know why your family would be so disrespectful of your health if they didn't know the consequences. UGH! I think dad should take the lead and read GF LIVING for DUMMIES: tinyurl.com/262xtu
and then you should work together to set an example.
Personally, my house is gluten-free. Once in a while I'll bring in a snack cake or a loaf of bread, but not very often. But my family is really pretty good about "gob dropping" and clean utensils. After diagnosis, I tried being a good sport and having my own things and own area of the counter, etc; but I was paranoid in my own kitchen! I decided I wasn't going to live like that at home (on top of living paranoid in the outside world). My home is now my safe haven.
Unfair to them as it may seem, it's really a family-affair. I mean, you'd do it for THEM, wouldn't you?
