About Me

I'm sure I have had this gene since birth, but my first real problems started after breast cancer surgery in early 2005. Very early and small, so I had partial mastectomy and radiation. Clear five years later.

 

I started having bouts of sick stomach and my energy level dropped steadily.My arthritis (hips and knees) got much worse.

 

In January of 2008 I collapsed and was taken to the emergency room. BP was 60/40. I was about gone. Thank God the GI doctor on call recognized my symptoms. I was diagnosed with celiac by biopsy.

 

Since that time I am strictly gluten free. I am strong, feel good, look better and the joint pain is completely gone.

 

I know I come over as Pollyianna. I don't mean to make light of the problems inherent with celiac. I'm just SOOOO much better!
