About Me

I have had
--increasing needs for sleep for a decade up to 18 hours in bed June-July 2010
--increasingly nasty abdominal cramping
--Restless legs at night, awake and asleep, for five years
--periodic diarrhea, probably after high gluten intake, for two decades and constant "borderline diarrhea" for at least five years
--Low iron levels for a decade
--Lactose intolerant for a quarter century
--Mostly sick for most of the winter for a decade, many doctor visits for sinus and ear infections, bronchitis, and pneumonia for two decades until taking Flonase, Singulair, and loratadine, and eliminating corn three years ago

On July 31, after two months of horrible cramping, restless legs, and needing 18 hours in bed to get inadequate sleep, I cried out to God for help, asking why life was worth living in these circumstances.
On Sunday August 1, God told me that I had Celiac disease. On Tuesday 8/3 my doctor said "maybe, go back on gluten for a blood test which misses 20%" On 8/17, I had my last intentional gluten and got the blood test. On 8/19, doc's message: test was negative, continue eating gluten-free it it helps
