I want to first start out by stating how amazing the gluten-free community is and how social media has become an incredible platform to help others. I recently got a post on my Facebook Fan Page from someone looking for help with various resources. I responded to her request but thought I would reach out to all of you as well. It’s interesting because I’ve been thinking about writing a book for quite some time and I think her question at the end pushed me over the edge. Yes, I’m currently writing a book but I unfortunately don’t have one for you yet.
My doctor gave me this 50 page Celiac Disease print out, and advised me to stop eating Gluten. Now, some friends of mine tell me in order for the test to show that I have Celiac, I would have to eat at least a piece of bread daily! Ok, I’m in pain, doing this, and yes sometimes, I just can’t help it, because I’ve eaten bread etc. all my life. I want to stop, because my system is not excepting gluten to well, I’m ready to make the total switch for medical reasons. It’s painful, physical tummy cramps, headaches, swelling in face, I have an epipen just in case. It’s painful emotionally, to cook, the way I have most of my life for my kids-> smells so good, and taste testing does not help me!
Can you help me, with some great recipes/ideas/ the whole family may enjoy, because I cook separate meals each day? Also, Do you have a book?
I’ve sent her some information but please comment on this post if you have some information that you would like to share with her. Even if it’s some emotional support or words of encouragement, remember everything helps.
