“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” — Neil Gaiman
Another year in the books. Another one ahead. Let’s review where we’ve been and where we’re going in the world of celiac disease. Topic by topic.
2021: They still suck.
2022 Prediction: Do I have to say it? They will always suck. Please support small businesses that care.
A pill for celiac disease
2021: No pill yet (and still am really on the fence about this one).
2022 Prediction: Nope…not this year either.
The Gluten Dude app
2021: Blood, sweat and tears. Official launch in July.
2022 Prediction: Will kick booty. Stay in the loop.
Celiac Disease Foundation
2021: Still block me on Twitter.
2022 Prediction: Instead of listening to valid criticism (i.e. Cheerios), they will continue to block me. You’d think a non-profit company that is paying their CEO an obscene amount would be more open-minded. Ah well…such is life.
2022 Prediction: [lots more crying…but fingers seriously crossed]
Gluten Free Jokes
2021: FINALLY…the jokes started to simmer down.
2022 Prediction: You’ll still get the occasional bonehead who thinks GF is a joke, but hopefully most of society has moved on from minimizing our autoimmune disease. Hey…a Dude can hope.
2022 Prediction: Unless we turn things around, we are in a world of hurt in so many areas. Greed and power have corrupted society.
2021: Celebrated the 10th anniversary of starting Gluten Dude.
2022 Prediction: I ain’t going anywhere.
