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.
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
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

Dude Note: I went back and forth a bit whether I should be posting Mrs. Dude’s breast cancer story on this blog. After all…this is a blog about living with celiac disease and how much of my audience really wants to hear about breast […]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.
