About Me

*I'm not affiliated in any way with the xgfx.org website. "xgfx" is a shorthand cutesy designation for "gluten-free vegan" and I like it. Veganism is important to me for personal reasons and my freedom from gluten has also become very important, so I wanted this incorporated into my username. I don't know anyone affiliated with the xgfx website, although I've been known to look up recipes there on occasion.

I'm 30-something years old, and have discovered my gluten intolerance in June 2011 after a lifetime of asthma, "acne," and anemia, and 5 (6? I forget) years of fibromyalgia (and a million diverse symptoms blamed on fibromyalgia). I've got invisible disabilities that cause chronic pain (arthritis-spine, spondylolisthesis), but it was the fibromyalgia symptoms that really impacted my lifestyle. Most doctors blame everything on fibromyalgia, and I was complacent and accepting of it for a long time. I've had negative tests, but am convinced gluten is toxic to me since avoiding it has made such a difference, and have accepted that current medical science can't formally diagnose me.

This board has been a huge asset for me in this journey. Thank you for your inspiring stories and helpful information.

I lost my career to celiac disease, but now that I'm on the mend, I'm trying to get back to work again.
