About Me

I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease in October of 2011. In May of 2011 I had a terrible stomach flu which is what triggered my problem with gluten. I was getting stomach aches EVERY time I ate. I could eat a bowl of pasta,bread,cookie, anything and it was so annoying that I went down to barely eating. At that time I was about 118 pounds. I would wake up and eat a roll a day because that was all I was ever hungry for. Little did I know a roll was the worst possible thing I could be consuming. Over the course of about two months I lost 20 pounds bringing my weight down to 98 pounds. I'm a fairly petite girl and always have been but I just constantly felt weak and never had the desire to go out with my friends. All I wanted to do was lay in bed which was very unlike my peppy energetic self. In November of 2011 I had an endoscopy which showed no damage to my stomach but my blood work from the previous month showed my antibodies were positive for Celiac Disease. At first I was very discouraged about what I could eat. I felt like I couldn't eat anything and lost an additional pound and a half. Today I am doing much better and adjusting to eating out :)
