Coping With Kisses

Recommended Posts

I'm happily married so I don't have to deal with the dating aspect of this, but I thought this was a nice article. It is especially relevant to me because in the last few months I've had to start having my wife warn me if she is wearing certain lipstick (or any) for that matter. :/

I did like this quote from the article though:

In an email discussing our airport picnic date, this is what I wrote:

Undiagnosed for 20 years since first symptoms.

March 2009 - Negative Blood work

April 24, 2009 - Gluten-free

April 29, 2009 - Notably positive response to gluten-free Diet.

May 2, 2009 Dairy Free

May 6, 2009, Soy Free

May 27, 2009 Enterolab Results: Positive Anti-gliadin IgA, tTG IgA, Casein, HLA DQ2.2, HLA DQ8

June 4, 2009 Refined sugar free (except Raw Honey, pure Maple syrup)

June 29, 2009, Dad diagnosed Celiac by GI specialist via blood work and dietary response.

July 2009, Dad's gene test: double DQ8! Thanks Dad - I'll try to get you something nice for Christmas! :)

August 8, 2009 Really Soy free this time - Thanks Blue Diamond for the soy lecithin in the almond milk! :(

Yes, it takes every bit of spontaneity out of the first kiss, if you don't want it to be the kiss of death.

Arrrgh!

It is a huge learning curve. I did really well in my first month of gluten-free but didn't really believe that things like kisses and pots could make that much of a difference. Now that I've eliminated all those "tiny" sources like gluteny kisses and non stick pots my recovery has been amazing!

Gluten free since April 6, 2011 ~ Also sensitive to coconut, coffee and food dyes

Joint pain, mouth sores, back and neck pain, migraines, stomach pain, chronic fatigue, ADD and depression are all gone.
Wishing I had been diagnosed before celiac robbed me of the cartilage in my toes and the 3 babies we lost to miscarriages.
