Fabulous is an incredible word- dontcha think? I mean, who wouldn’t want to be fabulous? And, if I can be completely honest here- I wasn’t always fabulous. Shocking, I know! See, for a long time I had to deal with the unknown and for me it came with a price. I never understood why I always felt sick, why I felt horrible after eating certain foods, or why I was having horrible migraines. I avoided social situations, developed a fear of food, and well, at times, became miserable! That all changed a few years ago when I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. What? No gluten? You’ve got to be kidding. Nope, they weren’t.
I’m sharing my story and journey here to shed some light in on a subject I hold close to my heart. Celiac Disease isn’t fabulous but once you learn to embrace it, make some changes to your lifestyle (okay a lot of changes), you’re given a chance to finally embrace life and truly live it. Now when people ask “how are you doing?” I don’t have to think twice- I simply tell them, “I’m fabulous.”
