Gluten is the devil

In the past few weeks, I've been experimenting and quite sadly it appears that I must give up (NO, not cartooning - shut up), something called gluten. It's in wheat and other stuff like beer. No bread. No beer. I'm over the suicidal stage thanks to all the gluten-free products available at many stores these days. I even made GF bread in my bread maker and it turned out great. I'll probably lose weight. What I've already lost is a bunch of physical discomfort. It wouldn't be so bad if I weren't also allergic to dairy and a few other things like apples. I think it's time to try some alternative medicines. The gluten thing is not an allergy but the others are and I believe that a few accupuncture needles will take care of them. I'll let you know.

Are you going to try the procedure Addison was talking about? (I forgot the name of it, but it's named for a female physician of Indian descent???) Let me know how it works!!

Yes, I am. I will most definitely blog about the experience.

Gluten is the devil, you're right about that. But after being gluten-free since November (with one month back on gluten for the purposes of having an endoscopy), it ain't so bad, really. In fact, I can't believe how much better I feel. Check out my blog for recipes at www.IAmglutenfree.blogspot.com. And good luck to you. Let me know if you have any questions.

THanks, Ellen!
