Tackling celiac with a sense of humor is an absolute must. A fellow celiac who was just diagnosed wrote a poem to gluten and she shared it with me on Facebook. I simply love it. And so I’m sharing it with you. That’s how […]Read More
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
Oh Linda, Oh Linda Where do I start? You so hurt my feelings You so broke my heart I guess the best place Is to start at the top Though be patient with me As my tears have not stopped I made a simple […]Read More
Yeah…yeah…I know. We’re healthier now so we don’t miss those evil gluten-filled foods. Blah, blah, blah. Just play the game. 🙂 I received the following email recently (actually October but who’s counting…yes I’m that backlogged) and it just got me thinking. Hmmmm…what would my […]Read More
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 […]Read More
For years, Mrs. Dude has been trying to come up with a name for me when I get glutened (besides the typical curse words she deservedly calls me under her breath). Well…after convincing her that Breaking Bad is the best thing since sliced bread […]Read More
Celiac disease Is a disease of the gut And more times than not It’s a giant pain in the butt A pain in the butt Can mean so many things For all the problems it causes For all the angst in brings But today […]Read More
There are so many lame attempts at gluten-free humor out there. Most of it is just mean-spirited because it’s done by people who don’t have gluten issues. Here is a perfect example. It is so lame…and it’s done by a, cough-cough, comedy troupe. But […]Read More
I have a few recurring dreams. One is that it’s time for my final exam and I realize that I haven’t gone to class all year and I’m in full blown panic mode. This is odd in and of itself but add to it […]Read More
Did you hear the joke about the girl with cancer who may have to have one of her breasts removed? Or how about the one about the guy with MS who lost his vision in one eye? And of course there is always the […]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.
