Ugh…the media. What a disaster of a ride it’s been with them when it comes to celiac disease. From Jimmy Kimmel to Dr. Oz to Disney to the Today Show and on and on and on. Here…I do my best to take them all to task with the ultimate goal of getting people to take our disease more seriously.

Celiac.com: A Tragic Tale of Good Intention$ Gone Awry

January 17, 2020 | 8 Comments

I’m going to tell you a story. I take no pleasure in writing this story, but it’s an important story. It’s a sad story. It’s a story of deceit and betrayal. It has villains. It has heroes. And it has a lesson of morality. […]

What Happened to Celiac.com?

November 1, 2019 | 23 Comments

How the mighty have fallen. Flashback: I was diagnosed with celiac disease in (…trying to remember the exact date/month…) September of 2007. I was sick as a dog. I was confused. I was angry. And I was lost. No…I wasn’t lost in the flood. […]

May 10, 2019 | 26 Comments

I’m warning you ahead of time…this post may be a bit sloppy and all over the place (kinda like my sex life when I was younger) as I’m still trying to grapple with my thoughts behind it. Ok…here we go. As most of you […]

This is not a rant. Since the gluten-free bashing has been going on for years and years, I’ve sadly become pretty numb to it. So as you read this, picture me using my quiet voice; the one where I’m just out of words to […]

January 22, 2018 | 34 Comments

Just when you think we’ve hit rock bottom…the bar keeps getting lowered. I thought it was bad when The Today Show called celiac a new trendy disease. I thought it was bad when The Today Show said we were picky eaters. I thought it […]

November 7, 2017 | 34 Comments

Back in 2014, there was an article on Huffington Post titled “Why Do Your Kid’s Allergies Mean My Kid Can’t Have a Birthday?” It was a pathetic display of journalism and I gave the author the beat down she deserved. Oddly enough, the Huff […]

I've Also Got a Book

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.
