If you have tripped and fallen into this blog, I am going to assume that you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. If so, congratulations! Not that this is considered a badge of honour… childhood dream come true anyone? But as someone who has spent years suffering and completely un-diagnosed, I would say that a diagnosis is a pretty big step *pats on the back for everyone!* If you’re someone who doesn’t have a clue what I’m rambling on about then I’d say that you my friend, have some seriously weird Googling methods but hey, maybe this site will help you fully appreciate the luxury of a healthy villi-plentiful gut.
As you may have already guessed, I have celiac disease. Yes, I am a celiac, and I heard somewhere that admitting it is the first step so I’d say it’s going pretty well so far. Unfortunately, that is about as far as I’ve gotten attitude-wise. I don’t need to bore you with a synopsis of my hospital antics over the last 3, almost 4 years now- maybe another time. Let’s just say that the last time you were in an ER and saw a girl yelling “In my head? Did you just say that my pain is IN MY HEAD?” at the doctors and nurses, that was probably me. So….. nice to finally meet you as I sit here calm with a cup of tea, you wouldn’t even recognize me now!
Throughout this blog I want to share some of my day-to-day experiences, problems, hard life stories and yes, maybe even positive outcomes with everyone. I have lots of recipes I have tried (before I became totally lazy) that I wish to share along with some of my favourite advice, quotes, books, products and resources. If anyone has anything to share with me that won’t totally make me broke and living on the streets (unable to read any further posts on my ever-weakening wifi signal) I would love to hear it. But seriously, GF stuff is expensive and I’m a struggling student here!
In all seriousness, it takes one hell of a strong moth*rf*cker to have celiac disease and I can’t wait to get to know all you tough b*tches out there!
Your Unapologetic Celiac
