All over creation and back again

The celiac diagnosis is still up for debate. I’m really really tired of waiting. So I’ve opted to take semi-measures into my own hands. I had blood drawn forever and eight years ago, and it was supposed to be back in a few weeks. I called on Thursday, to see if they had gotten anything back. Of course, because I have no clue who my primary care doctor is, I may not get a response any time soon. Plus, it’s not something that I will be prescribed medication for, so I’m sure they’ll take even longer. (I’m expecting to have to go back and have the tests run again. I have GREAT luck with medical records.)

I have been being really really good about the amount of gluten I consume. I THINK it’s starting to help. I did find that my favorite crisps are technically gluten free (depending on the oats, there might be trace amounts) and that a lot of things that I buy regularly at the Wallyworld and are their store brand are CLEARLY LABELED “gluten free”. This made me extra happy. To help me cope and think more positively about things I CAN eat, instead of what I CAN’T eat, I’ve started a list of things, and the brands, that I buy that at this point are safe. Things can change from time to time, so I’ll have to keep an eye out, but it’s very comforting.

So, I’m telling you all this, so I can tell you this.



Can I throw a tantrum now?

    Yes. Throw a tantrum. Beating up a pillow is often very effective in loosing your pent-up wrath. Throwing said pillow at hubby’s head can be satisfactory sometimes too. Just sayin’…
