Celiac Disease- another one for the list

Yes, the lab results are in with a yes to having Celiac disease. My family said they are taking dibs on what next disease I will be diagnosed with. (THANKS!) I am hoping that a lot of my health problems were the cause of this celiac disease and that everything else will get better as I avoid gluten and wheat etc. A lot of research to do, but it should be okay. I am actually ready to face this bull by the horns and hit it straight on and hopefully I can become self-reliant without wheat products. It is amazing what it is in, like shampoo's and conditioners, lotions, any food that is processed, even lunch meat! Yikes, this is going to be a struggle for a bit until I get the hang of it. Luckily my doctor kind of thought that I have had this for a while and I kind of tried to wean from wheat, just not whole heart idly because I wasn't going to go without until I knew for sure, but I tried to avoid the basics, so I have started anyway being more aware and now it is time to be a strict Gluten Nazi.

Oh that sucks! I'm sorry! Hopefully you will notice a big difference and feel better. Love the fake poop and air freshner stories!!! It would be hilarious to hear the old tapes you found!

Amy! I haven't checked out your blog FOREVER! (What a good friend... :)

I'm sorry about the Celiac diagnosis. That sucks? The good news? It's becoming more common and there are at least more options around than there used to be.

Maybe I could be a good friend and we could get together again! I lost your contact info but you can email me at
