Gluten free again
So my mom may have celiac disease. And she is kinda having a bit of a meltdown over it. She is 57 years old and may have been living her entire life with that bitch of a disease. Her doctors are pretty sure she has it but she has to get some test done to verify it.
So I’m going to go gluten free again with her for various reasons. And they are:
1. In solidarity. She’s gonna need all the help she can get and I don’t want her to go it alone. And if she is 100% celiac then I need her to be successful.
2. Her doctor told her that if any of her kids have symptoms they should get checked out bc it can run in families. Welp, I’ve been noticing bad symptoms with wheat products for a while. My mom actually brought me up and said my daughter complains about gluten products. And also has MS. The doctor had a “yeah she should def get tested” response. So I shouldn’t probably eat the gluten either.
3. MS diets don’t like the gluten so I should just bite the bullet and remove it from my diet.
4. When I lost the most amount of weight my diet was sans gluten products. So there are definite shallow benefits to this diet.
So yeah. I’m about to go to bed and in the morning I’m going gluten free…
Ugh. Right before the best season for beer! Back to being whiskey snob.
