  3. I have been sick a lot of this year and I never know why, I went to see the doctor. The doctor tells me they don't know what is wrong with me, then I went to see a special doctor that's when good things is starting out nice, since I finely find the answer I am looking for my sickness and I give the doctor my blood test they find out I have Celiac Disease which the other doctors I know well never find out about this and to be honest with you I never heard of this Celiac Disease in my life before now. It is not a easy thing and plus I also have an problem with milk too so. It is a struggle you think well it is at times, but I rather to take care of my body then to killed it and I love my body then I ever did in my life before. I was born with {CAPD} Center Auditory Processing Disorder and learning disability, which I have a hard time communicate to people and understanding to hear them, or they have a hard time understanding me. But I am slowing getting to be heal through this Celiac Disease it might do the trick. I believe in God and I know we can here to Earth to have a body, but not just a body a great beautiful body that we need to work on and to happy about ourselves the way we look.
