I got the call on Valentine’s Day 2014 – “Your biopsy and blood work confirm that you have Celiac Sprue.” Â It was a shocking revelation. Â I’ve felt good and have been healthy my entire life until one night in October of last year. Â 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. Â Weird, I know! Â Well, it was delicious by the way, but I had been referring to it as the “Pizza of Doom”. Â Anyhow, I spent months going to doctor’s appointments, researching like a crazy person, and attempting to self-diagnose. Â 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. Â 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. Â I’m also happy to say that I’m pretty much back to my old healthy self. Â Darned gluten!
