About Me

Symptoms for 8+ years (some go back 14 years):

  • Constant abdominal pain and bloating
  • Constipation/Diarrhea swings
  • Constant Fatigue
  • Night Sweats
  • Anemia
  • Depression
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Joint pain
  • Near-constant hunger
  • Inability to lose weight


Diagnosed myself after inadvertently doing a gluten challenge on myself (eating homemade gluten steaks)--OhhhhhWEeeeee was that bad. Had suspected for years that I might have a problem with gluten, but never really considered Celiac as I didn't fit the typical profile (myth) of the skinny, underweight Celiac.


Went gluten-free on my own and within 48 hours all of my symptoms were improved or gone altogether. It feels like a MIRACLE. So thankful to be on the road to wellness. And so frustrated that after many trips to the doctor, I ended up figuring it out myself. Hey--that Bachelor's degree in Nursing came in handy after all!
