I couldn’t just leave you with my Angry Celiac post. It’s Celiac Awareness Month after all.
I was diagnosed with celiac disease five years ago. My life has changed quite a bit since then.
Before my diagnosis, I was sick all. the. time. Like, I couldn’t make plans because I’d never know when my symptoms would strike. For nearly a year, I “lived” like this. I struggled – wondering “Is this just normal? Does everyone live like this? Am I just being weak?”
January 2015: Visiting New York for a birthday weekend for my boo, filled with surprises – including his parents arriving for brunch, Aladdin on Broadway, and dinner out with a champagne toast from my parents (via technology).
Well. It’s Celiac Awareness Month again. I’ve written about living with celiac once or twice before.
Today’s post is for my fellow celiacs who have lived with this damn diagnosis for awhile now (five years for yours truly) and are well and truly over it. This isn’t a “yay we can do it!” post – this is a “yeah but WHY” post.
