Dear Gluten Dude
I get emails. Lots and lots of emails. People looking for answers. People sharing their stories. People asking if I’m single. Just kidding about that last one. I do my best to reply to every email and I post ones that may ring a chord with the community.
Hey everyone. I got the following email a few days ago. Being a teenager can be tough enough without dealing with a misunderstood disease like celiac. She’s feeling anger, frustration and even guilt that her sister was also just diagnosed. Please take a read […]Read More
Confession time. I was bullied mercilessly as a kid. Pretty much from 2nd grade to 6th grade. Even my “best friend” joined in when with others. Mike Perry…if you’re reading this…there’s a special place in hell for you. And why was I bullied? Cause […]Read More
Oh my…I am so behind on emails…it’s mortifying. I’m going to have to do a big, great, huge, sizable, substantial, immense, enormous, colossal, massive, mammoth, vast, gigantic, monumental, stupendous, gargantuan, elephantine, titanic, mountainous, monstrous mailbag soon. It may take you days to read it […]Read More
First…just tons of thanks for your support and kind words last week. Seriously means the world to me. I can’t say I’m not still in a bit of a dark place, but I keep looking for the light. I’ll find it. Speaking of support, […]Read More
I’ve been a bad boy. So many emails that I have not responded to or acknowledged. I swear I do read every one of them, but time prevents me from responding at times. So my apologies to those who have reached out and have […]Read More
Happy Celiac Awareness Month folks. In years past, I’ve always tried to do something unique for this month. One year I wrote 30 blog posts in 30 days (boy…was everyone sick of me by the time THAT month was over); another year I tried […]Read More
After being sick for more than a year and ignoring Mrs. Dude’s plea to go see a doctor, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in September of 2007. You know…back in the days when nobody knew what gluten was and I was actually […]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.

I'm all ears
