The doctor called today with the results of my biopsy. I have been officially diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
After sharing the news with my family, I put it out on Twitter. People seemed to be torn between saying “Congratulations!” and saying “I’m sorry.” Let me just say that there is no reason to feel bad. This is a time to celebrate! I have already gone almost a week eating gluten-free and this is the best I have felt in a very long time. I am so thankful to have a diagnosis, especially one that is curable with food. I have a few friends who have been going through the same thing who do not have Celiac Disease and still don’t know what is causing their painful symptoms. So please celebrate with me! If I could, I would have you all over for a Celiac party!
I’m sure I will be posting more about Celiac Disease and my journey towards complete healing. You can expect all of my recipes to be gluten-free from now on, but that does not mean that they aren’t for everyone. I promise that I would never post a recipe if it wasn’t delicious!
You will also be seeing some other big changes going on around here. I am switching over to a new site that I hope will be cleaner and easier to use for all of us. I am also partnering with an amazing organization that I just cannot wait to tell you about.
Change is good. Let’s celebrate!
