Celiac Disease: A Soldier’s Story

April 6, 2015 | 41 Comments

One quick Dude Note: For those that don’t follow me on Facebook, I had a bit of a scare this weekend. Intense chest pain that landed me in ER. All tests came back negative. Good times. For those that sent me messages of support, […]

Question for Female Celiacs: How are You in the Boob Department?

December 16, 2013 | 79 Comments

I assure you I don’t ask this question for personal reasons. As a matter of fact, it took me ten minutes to come up with the above title to make sure I used the least offensive terminology as possible. Out of the 20 slang […]

Celiac Awareness Must Start With the Medical Community

May 30, 2013 | 119 Comments

As we wind down Celiac Awareness Month (and what a month it’s been!), there is one aspect of our disease that seems to get overlooked far too often: the role the medical community plays. Or perhaps I should say the lack of the role […]

On a Day of Tragedy, a Guest Post from a Bostonian

April 16, 2013 | 16 Comments

Yesterday was another day that shook me to my core. I’ve realized that my kids will never grow up in the same world that I did. And I have this sinking feeling that the aggressive nature of mankind will eventually destroy this beautiful planet […]

Celiac Disease & Infertility: Is There a Connection?

March 12, 2013 | 36 Comments

Although I’d like to think I handle the tough gluten-related topics on this site, it’s not too often I delve into actual “medical” discussions. Why? Ummm…lawsuits, expensive trials, prison time and taking showers with a bunch of criminals would top my list. Or maybe […]

What's it Like to be a 15-Year-Old Celiac?

December 19, 2012 | 35 Comments

I can say with absolute certainty that I was an awkward teenager. I tried to portray myself as cool and collected, but inside I was tangled mess of nerves and insecurity. I’m assuming many teenagers feel the same way. Now on top of that…add […]

A Celiac Gives Thanks

November 21, 2012 | 56 Comments

Sometimes it’s hard for a celiac to feel thankful. I get emails…every day…from fellow celiacs who I know aren’t feeling very thankful. They’re angry. They’re resentful. They just want their life back the way it was. I get it. I’ve been there. We’ve all […]

A Dudette Goes Gluten-Free…And Lives to Tell the Tale

August 9, 2012 | 32 Comments

One of my lovely Dudettes has been promising for some time to go gluten-free for a week to show her support. A lovely gesture indeed and to be honest, it was one I was hoping for. If nothing else, it’s a good discipline test. […]

Gluten-Free Living: Life Lessons in Friendship

July 17, 2012 | 38 Comments

Some years ago, my nephew got diagnosed with leukemia at a very young age. He was quite sick and it was naturally devastating to the family (he’s fine and thriving now). But I’ll always remember something my brother (his dad) told me at that […]

Celiac Disease: Is This as Good as it Gets?

July 13, 2012 | 60 Comments

A month or so ago, I was in the midst of a pretty crappy stretch health-wise and went all-out to find a cause and a solution for my health woes. Truthfully, it’s been up and down since my diagnosis in 2007 and I simply […]

The Gluten Dude App: For a Better Gluten-free Life

Eating out with celiac disease is stressful. The Gluten Dude app lists only restaurants that have been personally vetted, so you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying yourself.

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.
