About Me

I am a female living in Houston, TX and working in the field of Psychology. I was diagnosed gluten intolerant 7/2014 after the run around for several years. I also have Diabetes type 2 (insulin dependent), Fibromyalgia, and Hashimotos Thyroiditis. I am a Cancer warrior and survivor (Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma). Very grateful to have some answers and feeling hopeful for a gluten free life.

  1. Today marks 3 weeks since going gluten free. Overall I feel a world better!!! At first, I was sleeping really good (like the first week and a half), but for the last week and a half or so, I've had horrible insomnia. Now, I am a chronic insomniac anyway, but I was rather enjoying that week and a...

    Thanks, Doc

    So I went to my follow up appointment with my doctor today, 2 weeks since going gluten free. After HE said to go gluten free and it will help a great deal.

  8. So I am starting to think that several of the things I have beend diagnosed with, and/or are struggling with (including severe insomnia) are directly tied to gluten. Just over a week in, my insomnia has gotten noticeably better. My fibromyalgia pain has gone from constant pain to, seriously...
  9. First grocery shopping trip since diagnosis. Here we go!

  10. Thanks so much, Colleen. Yep I am excited!
  11. Thanks, I actually had to reschedule. Very long and frustrating story behind that one. But I'll definitely post a new blog when I do have the sleep study and get the results.
  12. Well, 7 days down... a whole week gluten free... and I'm feeling hopeful. Good sign, considering I really thought I'd be down in the dumps over this (thank you to this forum and the book 'Living Gluten Free for Dummies by Danna Korn for the push in the hopeful direction!) We are making our very...
  13. 1 Week Diagnosed/Gluten Free, and Feeling Much Better Already!

  14. Sleep study tonight. Here we go!

  15. I am getting a sleep study done tonight. My Oncologist referred me for one. I have had chronic insomnia since I was 15 years old. I am now 34. My sleep is awkward, and I go through phases where I literally can't sleep at all (despite being on sleep medication prescribed by my psychiatrist), or I...
