“I Need a Vacation From Myself”

Ok…the good news is that I am dedicating time to go thru all of the emails I’ve received the past month. The not-so-good news is that I have A LOT to go through. Like a real lot. If you’ve emailed me for advice/guidance/whatever, I’ll do my best to get back to you. If you’ve emailed me asking me to diagnose you, sorry, but you need a doctor, not a blogger.

Here’s an email from a fellow celiac and it has a line I love so much, just wanted to share it with you all on this sunny Friday morning.

Hi Gluten Dude. Thanks for your work. The rants…the raves…the support.

I was dx about 5 years ago at age 40ish. Like a lot of celiacs, my gut reacts to more than just gluten. The list is long and growing (which is worse because you never know what ingredient was the latest culprit). I loved your what three things do you miss blog. I’m just recovering from my latest exposure to something (lousy potato starch is the culprit this time) and after several days of pain and severe bloating to 7 months prego – like I said to my husband “I need a vacation from myself!”

I am lucky to have an extremely supportive husband and family. My friends are awesome too. I’m grateful for my dx versus the unknown years of suffering. I’m even happy about the fad gluten-free life-stylers who have made eating gf more common.

It’s just that some weeks when you have some reaction, you just really wish you could have that vacation from celiac and all it brings.

Thanks for your efforts for the celiac community.

“A vacation from myself.” Yes…this. A thousand times…this.

I’ve said it so many times in the past: celiac sux but for the most part, it’s manageable. And not by expensive drugs or therapy, but simply by food. So in the context of some other diseases, let’s face it…it could be worse. But the one thing about celiac is that it’s constant. If on a given day, you feel great, you still need to think about every morsel of food you put in your body. It is what it is, but it can be tiresome.

So yeah…a vacation from myself sounds pretty darn good. I’m off to find my happy place.

Where should I go??
