At the direction of my doctor, I tried eating Gluten-Free in June 2007.  Within 5 days, my stomach stopped hurting and the frequent dashes for the washroom subsided – within 5 short days, I started to realize just how bad I had been feeling.  When I think back, I remember at least 3 years of suffering – I was in college, university, it was probably my first real experience with stress.  I have no doubt that gluten plagued me prior to that time, but I know with confidence, that I  suffered for at least 3 years.  I now watch my diet much more carefully and my body is responding well – I’m starting to feel good again.

 It definitely hasn’t been easy, but I think that I’m passed being angry and frustrated.  I’m past feeling bored and limited in my food choices and instead embrace all of the hidden, delicious ingredients that I now have the pleasure of exploring.  Gluten-Free is a whole new world, and when you stop being scared, it starts becoming exciting.  There is a plethora of knowledge, information and insight on the Internet – so many blogs have given me tidbits of information that have helped me in my Gluten-Free journey.  I want to keep my own record – but I do hope, something, somewhere might also touch a few of you out there.

  1. Fellow gluten free blogger,

    I’m staring a carnival blog as a one-stop shopping place for gluten free information. A blog carnival is like a magazine of articles that gets published on a schedule. Every 3 months (I hope it catches on so that we can do this more often – at least monthly), bloggers submit an article related to the GF lifestyle to be published by the host blogger. We will all take turns being the host blogger (if you are interested in hosting, let me know!). We hope that we can all learn from each other and introduce our readers to other food allergy sites out there.

    Joining the community of contributors is a great way to get more readers to your blog. It’s easy to do. Just follow the below link and fill in the quick form linking one of your best blog posts to the carnival page. Topic areas will include recipes, tips, research, advice/support, etc. Your post will get posted along with contributions from other GF bloggers.

    The deadline for the next carnival is July 25, 2009. Be sure to let your readers know about the first carnival. It’ll be posted on August 1st at http://thefoodallergycoach.blogspot.com/.

    Looking forward to reading your post,
    Kim
