So, it's official...I now have a blog. I've played around with these things before, but just never really got into them. I suppose that is because I never really had anything to write about.
I was diagnosed with Celiac disease roughly four years ago, but just started a gluten-free lifestyle about one month ago. I was tired of feeling terrible all the time, and I also considered the long term complications and problems that may hinder my health as a result of continuing to eat foods containing gluten.
Making the switch to a gluten-free lifestyle has been huge, and has impacted nearly every aspect of my life. It's amazing how just one change can have significant residual effects and impact on everything else.
Returning to the idea that I posed at the beginning of this post, I believe that I actually have something to write about now. I have my experiences to recount and share with others, advice to offer to others suffering from gluten sensitivity, a forum where I can ask questions and hopefully receive advice, and an environment in which I can feel comfortable talking about life as a Celiac.
Hopefully we can all create a lively community where we can share our stories and experiences, in addition to learning more about Celiac disease and how to live with it.
