“Pizza of Doom”

I got the call on Valentine’s Day 2014 – “Your biopsy and blood work confirm that you have Celiac Sprue.”  It was a shocking revelation.  I’ve felt good and have been healthy my entire life until one night in October of last year.  I started having some persistent and severe GERD like symptoms that came on abruptly after eating a “wild and foraged mushroom pizza” from a local pizza place.  Weird, I know!  Well, it was delicious by the way, but I had been referring to it as the “Pizza of Doom”.  Anyhow, I spent months going to doctor’s appointments, researching like a crazy person, and attempting to self-diagnose.  Celiac disease wasn’t anything I thought of or came across. Obviously, it’s not the end of the world and I’m so very grateful to know now but, it’s a life-changing diagnosis and has been quite an adjustment for our family.  So stay tuned – – I’m looking forward to sharing tons of things (links, recipes, books, product recommendations, etc.) that I’ve found super helpful these past few weeks.  I’m also happy to say that I’m pretty much back to my old healthy self.  Darned gluten!
