About Me

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2000. Suffered for many years before I discovered Celiac disease and asked a doctor about it. My blood tests came back negative but I still acted like I had it because it made me feel better. At the time I was questioning celiac, I also found out I was allergic to rice all of a sudden. This complicated things to a great deal. After a year of being gluten free, I decided maybe I was torturing myself for nothing and started eating gluten again. My pain that was diagnosed as Fibro never really completely went away. At first eating gluten seemed to be fine so I went with it. Fast forward 2 years, my health depleted greatly. So I decided it was definitely the gluten. I also have a laundry list of other food issues, lactose intolerance, hemochromatosis. Now as of today I am pain free and have been for well over a year. My health is still not perfect but at least now I know what the majority of the problem is.

  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!
