I hate celiac. You hate celiac. We all hate celiac. With all that pent up anger, people need a place to vent. That’s one of the reasons I started this blog. There’s just one rule: Once you’re done venting, you need to move forward and put the negative vibes on the back burner. Positive energy brings positive results. Ready for some rants? Read on.
Dude note: To help celebrate and promote Celiac Awareness Month, I will be writing 30 blog posts over 30 consecutive days (weekends excluded) with the theme “30 Days of Helping 30 Celiacs”. Each post will be aimed toward helping one specific person or group […]Read More
We don’t owe anybody any explanation of why we eat gluten-free. It’s our life. It’s our body. It’s our health. It’s what we do to thrive and survive. Yet with the fad diet in full force, I know some in our community feel the […]Read More
It never ends. It seriously never ends. The constant ignorance out there and the constant need to defend ourselves about our disease and other food intolerances. What set me off this time? An utterly ridiculous article on Huff Post titled “Why Do Your Kid’s […]Read More
I love this. I really, really love this. It’s a celiac rant with a positive spin. Because our disease is connected to food, it’s the food that tends to get all of the focus. Food is sexy I guess; disease…not so much. But the […]Read More
The below comment was left on my blog post about children with chronic health issues a few weeks ago. I was stunned and I reached out directly to the woman who wrote the comment. I told her how sorry I was and asked if […]Read More
Think back to when you were first diagnosed with celiac disease. What was your first reaction? For many people, it was relief. Relief that they finally had an answer to all of their health woes. Relief that it wasn’t cancer. Relief that they could […]Read More
While I love being a sounding board for people’s celiac rants, it saddens me that I still receive so many of these. Today’s rant comes from a fellow celiac whose ill father simply doesn’t give any credence to our disease. Now where have we […]Read More
Celiac is such a strange disease. You can go stretches where you feel totally fine and you find yourself thinking that you’ve got it all figured out. But then you get hit by god knows what and you become a prime candidate for the […]Read More
There are currently 515 emails in my inbox. Yeah…I’m a big backlogged. Buried within them are some nice passionate celiac rants that the community has shared with me. Now I’m going to share them with you. See how easy this is?? Rant #1 I […]Read More
I have a hard time with ignorance. I can deal with a lot of things when it comes to other people: anger, jealousy, pettiness, etc. The fact that we’re all so different is what makes the world go round. But ignorance? Simply not believing […]Read More
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.
