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.
I am doubly blessed when it comes to my work life. Not only do I work for myself, but I also work from home. And because I run an web design company, I rarely have to travel. (It’s ok to hate me for this…I […]Read More
I’ll admit it…I”m kind of a geek. In my “real” life, I own a web development company and even though I spend about 16 hours a day online, I’m still amazed at the power of technology and its ability to reach the far corners […]Read More
Celiac can affect you in so many different ways. It messes with your health. It messes with your freedom. It messes with your mind. But I never considered it messing with your career. Unless of course your goal is to become a chef. That […]Read More
When it comes to celiac, I can only think of one thing worse than having the disease itself. It’s being a kid and having the disease. One of the benefits of being young is supposed to be having a care-free lifestyle before you reach […]Read More
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 […]Read More
First, a quick Dude health update: I went to see my GI yesterday. He says something is definitely going on, but it is not necessarily the celiac. My blood work from a few months back showed no gluten antibodies, so it’s not hidden gluten […]Read More
Dude Note: To honor Celiac Awareness Month and to help raise awareness of our disease, I will be attempting 31 blog posts in 31 days. My goal is simple: to make most of them not suck. If you’ve got ideas for a good post […]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.
