Celiac Rant-of-the-Day: I Want to Punch People in the Face

June 26, 2012 | 80 Comments

I hate celiac. You hate celiac. We all hate celiac. With all that pent up anger, people need a place to vent. Well…I invite you to lie on the Dude’s couch (figuratively speaking) and spew away. I’m starting a new feature called “Celiac Rant […]

Celiac Disease: Assumptions vs. Reality

June 25, 2012 | 75 Comments

When I got my celiac diagnosis in 2007, after a year of not feeling well, I ASSUMED I would start feeling better if I just stopped eating gluten. Much of what I read online led me to that conclusion. But like many things with […]

June 21, 2012 | 47 Comments

So last week, I met with a doctor who is now my primary care physician. Gave her my recent symptoms: exhaustion, headaches, stomach aches, etc. But also went over my medical history (celiac, bladder cancer, pulmonary embolisms) and she was quite perplexed as to […]

Review: The Gluten-Free Bar (and an Ugly Sweater Goes to the Movies)

June 19, 2012 | 35 Comments

Ok…The Gluten Dude is jumping into the product review business. Well, I wouldn’t really call it a business ’cause, you know, I’m not making any money on it or anything. But lately I’ve been getting samples sent to me. It’s pretty cool. But I […]

Love and Dating in a Gluten-Free Life

June 18, 2012 | 52 Comments

I was more than blessed enough to be married already when I was diagnosed with celiac disease. I can’t imagine dating while dealing with the food issues we’ve got to deal with. As Mrs. Dude says jokingly (I think)…”Good luck finding somebody who will […]

Dear Gluten Dude: How Do I Deal With Insensitive Comments?

June 15, 2012 | 59 Comments

People are idiots. Not me of course. And certainly not you. But everyone else? Idiots. How else to explain the utterly ridiculous comments that so many celiacs must put up with? Come on people…common sense and common courtesy really aren’t that difficult. We’re not […]

Woo-hoo! I No Longer Have Celiac Disease. Oh…Wait. Yes I Do.

So my doctor’s assistant called me yesterday with the results of my endoscopy and the associated biopsy. She said I am not showing any signs of “celiac sprue”, as she called it. Stomach looks good. Villi are just fine…thank you for asking. For a […]

Being a Bitch Girl with Celiac Disease

June 11, 2012 | 87 Comments

I know what you’re thinking… “Gluten Dude, unless you somehow “changed teams” over the weekend, how you can possibly know what it’s like to be a girl with celiac disease?” In response to your wise-beyond-your-years observation, let me introduce you to today’s guest blogger. […]

Who I am. And who I'm not.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.

I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
