This is how I picture Mr. C. (That's how I refer to my Celiacs)
I get mad when people try to explain to me why I got sick or what I should have done differently. I'm sure that over time and likely when I'm feeling better, I will not get mad and will be able to talk more freely.
Today, I'm going to talk about my Celiacs diagnosis.
First of all, Celiacs is an auto-immune disease that people are genetically pre-disposed to having. I did not do anything to cause this.
It is NOT a flare up. It is not an allergy or dietary fad. I get VERY SICK when I eat gluten containing items and serious damage has been caused to my intenstines which causes a whole host of problems. I get sick when there is cross contamination, meaning that my meal did not contain any gluten but a plate or knife or something else touched my food.
