Two quick Dude notes before kicking things off: 1) This is my 600th blog post. Yowsa! Serious kudos to all of you for keeping this community rocking. I thought I’d run out of things to say after 6 blog posts. 2) I am WAY behind on responding to emails. Hang tight. I’ll get back to you. Been a busy Dude.
So let’s have some fun today.
Yes…I am blessed to have my celiac diagnosis so I know what was ailing me. Yes…I am much more aware of everything I put in my body now and have become a better person because of it. And yes…we need to look forward and not back once we are diagnosed.
But dang, we’re still human. There is a mourning period after your diagnosis of the life you will leave behind. And to be honest, 7 years after my diagnosis, I still long for certain things. It’s ok to admit it. It certainly doesn’t consume me. But it’s there.
So instead of keeping it all bottled up, let’s get it out in the open. Let’s admit that there are certain things we miss since our celiac diagnosis.
Let’s name 3 things we miss the most since our celiac diagnosis.
I’ll start. I miss 1) spontaneity, 2) real pizza and 3) eating out anywhere I damn please. There…I feel better already.
Ok…now it’s your turn. In the comments below, tell me: What 3 things do you still yearn for? What do you long for? What cravings, desires, hankerings, urges, and lustings do you still have? (And no “I don’t miss anything. My life is so much better now” answers. )
