About Me

I am a 38 year old woman and native San Franciscan, now living in northern Nevada...I'm also a Blogger. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease on April 15, 2000 - the Millennium year proved to be quite significant for my life, minus any YK2 computer crashes. My diagnosis arrived sincerely just in the nick of time, because at the ripe old age of 30 I was on my out of this life, due to almost a decade of severe sickness, complications and misdiagnoses. There are still many a day when a flash of my pre-diagnosis past enters my mind and I remember glimpses of my life during those years of confusion, sickness, despair, and ultimate frustration. I don't recall ever feeling fearful of what was happening to me though, because the funny thing about the human spirit is - we fight to live; it's innate to our souls...and of our being. However, I can honestly say that my parents and brother would not concur with my last sentence because they were laden with the fear and uncertainty of my future more than I - my job was to fight through, research, keep living, keep filling up my soul with whatever joys and enjoyment I could still physically and emotionally take in...and I did just that.

I would be honored for any of you out there to take a look at my blog and see what you think, or better yet, please subscribe to receive my blog postings...it's easy to do from the home page at www.glutenfreebowlofsoul.blogspot.com.

  1. It's been a while since I penned a blog entry for this site and it's been something I've missed. I intended to post something in June, but the gluten-Gods had something else in mind for me, and on June 20th I was seriously gluten-poisoned while eating out at an Italian restaurant - and have been...
  2. I love to travel, in spite of airport security and the hassle of packing, (especially for a Celiac), but really...I don't mind. I still love the feeling of rushing to the airport to catch a flight to somewhere...and as the plane takes off, the feeling of soaring above the earth is really one of my...
  3. I'm a public relations professional and have worked in this industry for many years, enduring more than my share of work luncheons, social gatherings and banquet dinners, like the one I'm attending tonight with a client. When I do attend these events I'm always apprehensive beforehand, worried that...
  4. Over the past few weeks I have made two trips to Denver, CO—one to visit family—and the other for work.  During both trips to the Mile High City, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the knowledge of celiac disease and eating gluten-free is fairly prevalent. I always worry a bit...
  5. It's been a while since I had the energy or time to sit down and focus on writing or blogging, but I'm back. I also find it interesting, from a physiological perspective, that after being gluten poisoned two months ago to the day and being so inundated with sickness, pain and trying hard to feel...
  6. I accidentally consumed gluten almost three weeks ago and I'm still suffering with the serious consequences. It usually takes me a solid month, depending upon the amount consumed, to fully recover from being "gluten-poisoned"...so it's been a long and challenging few weeks, to say the least.I am...
  7. I'm a huge tennis fan and French Open groupie! I mean what can be better than hanging out in the City of Light and watching Rodger Federer dash around on the red clay?! So for the past couple of weeks I've been reading all about and watching as much of the tennis coverage from Paris as possible,...
  8. Now...I've been intending to sit down every evening for the past two weeks and post a new entry, but the time slips away...warm evenings have caused me to linger a bit too long in my backyard, but it's been worth it. In addition to this blog, as I mentioned last month, I've become an author on Celiac...
  9. I became a Celiac "Blogger" at the beginning of this year. For months I had longed to take the time to put my words to paper or keyboard and write snippets about my life's journey as a Celiac and in doing so, offer up all kinds of fun food, product, and restaurant tips to others who are searching...
  10. I've written in journals, on pieces of scratch paper, on torn-out magazine pages while sitting in airports, just about anywhere I can put pen to paper when the moment strikes and inspires me to move the ink across the page...I suppose I have much to say...not that anyone has to listen - writing and...
