If I could give one piece of advice to those just diagnosed with celiac or gluten sensitivity, it would be this: Live your life. Do not let celiac hold you back. It’s a bump in the road, but it’s a bump that is manageable. I promise.
Yes, you’ve got some serious adjustments to make.
Yes, your body will take some time to heal.
Yes, you will lose a little bit of freedom and spontaneity in your life.
But you know what? You’re getting your health back and that’s what matters.
There is an unbelievable amount of fear-mongering online. “You can’t have this” and “you should stay away from that”.
Some of it is accurate. Some of it is complete BS. Stick with the facts.
Do not live your life afraid to do things simply because of GLUTEN.
No matter what people say, it’s NOT everywhere and you CAN lead a normal life (with a few adjustments).
Take precautions. Educate yourself. Use common sense. And if in doubt, do without.
And if you have any questions about something, just ping me. I’ll set you straight.
