May 1st is the start of Celiac Disease Awareness month.
This time last year, my life slowly started changing for the better even though I was dealing with some bumps along the road. I have been living with non-Celiac Gluten-Intolerance for almost a year now even I may have had symptoms for a lot longer. It has not been fun or glamorous.
It involved with many trips to the bathroom and frequent trips to different doctors and specialists. The road stopped for me when I started living Gluten-Free and eventually saw one of the awesome doctors at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
The frequent trips to the bathroom have stopped. My need for Zofran and Baclofen for episodes cross-contamination when I was in the fetal position from the severe abdominal pain is down to NOTHING. My sinus infections frequencies has dropped to almost nothing (but this weather since February has not helped in that department.)
I am currently involved with Team Gluten-Free as a fundraising participant. I will be training for the Twin Cities Marathon this October while raising money to send 2 kids to camp in Summer 2014.
During the course of the month of May, I will have some articles with some topics and factoids on living with Celiac Disease and/or Gluten-Intolerance. Some information will be interesting and some will completely amaze you as it did when I started my gluten-free journey.
Until next time...
