  8. 21st April - So then, let me add weepy eyes to my seemingly neverending list of symptoms - previously endured with barely a second thought! - everything it seems, can be linked back to gluten. I look terrible the dark circles under my eyes seem to be darker than ever, although headache and heartburn...
  9. 20th April - I have dragged myself through this beautiful spring day feeling horrendous, trying to comfort my two boys (it looks very much like they have chicken pox) whilst feeling like I just want to curl up under my duvet in the dark and sleep through the next 3 weeks - of course I would fail...
