Though the medical community has come a long way in the past 10 years, let’s just say they have a long way to go when it comes to celiac disease?
We’ve all had our dose of doctor horror stories. Heck…many of you shared your story right here. While I’m grateful for the care I’ve received over the years for the myriad of my health issues and especially grateful for the care Mrs. Dude received […]Read More
Because my audience keeps growing, every once in awhile I’ll post on Facebook an older article that I’ve written. Yesterday, I linked to the Doctor Horror Stories our community has shared. And holy moly…what a response. So many stories…so much heartbreak. And all of […]Read More
Did you know that today is Celiac Awareness Day? That’s right…our disease is so big that we get our own special day to try to spread awareness. Heck, we even get our own month, which happens to be the month of May. (And yes…there […]Read More
We need to be our own best advocates. I’ve been saying that for years. We simply cannot trust that the doctors word is final. Because far too often…it’s wrong. Especially when it comes to celiac disease. If you have not already, check out the […]Read More
We’ve all heard the doctor horror stories (and if you haven’t, read them here…disturbing to say the least). We all know that celiac disease continues to be misdiagnosed and that the average time to get accurately diagnosed is 6-10 years. We all know that […]Read More

When I was diagnosed five years ago with celiac disease, my doctor nailed it right away. I didn’t really think twice about it at the time. He’s a doctor. I was a sick patient. He did his job. But since I’ve started this blog, […]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.
