When it comes to celiac disease, you need a support system. I am stunned of all of the emails I get from people who just don’t have it. Spouses not caring, parents not taking precautions; friends intentionally glutening people cause they don’t “believe” in celiac disease. It makes me sad.
When I was kid, oh how I hated September. It meant my summer at Long Beach Island was coming to a close. It meant shorter days. It meant cooler nights. And it meant…EGADS…back to school!! I wish I could say I had pleasant memories […]Read More
Once or twice a year, I write a blog post that has nothing to do with celiac or gluten. It happens when I want to call out something, or in this case someone, special. Today is a double anniversary. First, it is Mrs. Dude […]Read More
Dear Mom & Dad, You don’t know me, but I know your daughter. She’s not in a good place and you don’t seem to care. How do I know this? Because she reached out to me a few days ago privately. You see…I’m a […]Read More
Ok…I’m back. My little blogging semi-vacation is over. Two blog posts in two weeks is totally lame. I’ve got TONS of emails to get through and I’ll be posting them here in the next few weeks. I figure, if one person has a specific […]Read More
A girl phoned me the other day and said, “Come on over, there’s nobody home.” I went over. Nobody was home. I think sex is better than logic, but I can’t prove it. Impotence: Nature’s way of saying “No hard feelings”. You know “that […]Read More
Two quick Dude Notes before I get going. Dude Note 1: Such an awesome response so far on the Faces of Celiac Disease. Many of you have asked me where you can view the wall (that’s what I’m calling it). Well…I’ve now got hundreds […]Read More
Dude Note 1: Celiac Awareness Month starts tomorrow. Well, the “official” month starts tomorrow. I think I have a good idea for this year. Check back tomorrow. Dude Note 2: I am WAY behind on emails. I promise I read every one and will […]Read More
If you’ve got a supportive family, count your blessings. I’ve received so many emails over the years from others who are not quite as fortunate. This one came in a couple of days ago and it has her doubting whether she should even mention […]Read More
Happy Friday everyone. A few quick Dude notes before I kick things off. – Note #1: I’ve gotten a bazillion messages asking me about the Pizza Hut gluten free pizza. I’ll need more info before making an informed opinion. My original thought is that […]Read More
Happy New Year everyone. Hope you all had a great holiday. Personally, I’m pretty psyched for 2015 and am happy to see 2014 in the rear view mirror. Let me ask you a question. During the holidays, did you eat any meals at someone […]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.

I'm all ears
