I have celiac disease, which was shocking, but looking back, not really surprising. I want to say I was diagnosed quickly, but was I? I went to the doctor with a rash in August. Have had the rash on and off for two years - it took me that long to realize that the intensely itchy, seemingly reasonless and scarring rash on my knees, elbows, and shoulders was nothing less than something more than "plague" which is what I affectionately call my DH.
I have celiac disease. All the blood tests, skin biopsies, SI biopsies and exams - they all say the same thing. I am lucky. I have concurrence. I have a definitive answer. All the health issues I've previously endured now make sense. The challenge now is not to look back but rather to look forward and to claim and embrace a new, healthier, tastier, safer, fun as heck life.
I am blessed. I ask for blessings to be dispersed to more and more and more. The more people with more blessings, the better!
