Hello, I was given the news today that my DNA testing came back with strong indicators that I'm gluten intolerant. I went to the doctor this morning and received a lot of information about what all of that means. As he was speaking, I realized that the lunch I had packed for work today was not 100% gluten free because it had some cheese and olive salad. The cheese probably came from milk from a grain fed cow. And I'm not sure what kind of vinegar was used in the olive salad. WOW! The things I need to think about before I put food in my mouth is a little overwhelming at the moment!
On the bright side, I have high hopes of becoming healthy and energetic. After years of being in pain from undiagnosed musle and joint inflamation, I had just about given up on ever feeling good again. I seldom spoke about my discomfort because I didn't want to give it any power in my life. I had accepted that I was getting old and that is what old people feel like. But I'm not old. I'm only 53 and I have a new diet and lifestyle that is going to help me feel my age and feel better. I have a lot to learn though!
