Well, hello there everyone! I am back in so many ways. Not only am I back to writing here, and back from a trip to visit my family, but I am also back to normal health. I am so glad to report this to you. I don’t really want to share all of the details as they are very personal, but I’ll just say that there is nothing physical to worry about. I’ll tell you that I saw many doctors, underwent numerous tests, and it finally came down to me in the end. It came down to a decision. And, now I am well.
I still have celiac disease, of course, but my other ailment is no longer a problem for me. I cannot even begin to express how much happier I am to be back to being me. I am also happy to be back to writing here. During that period of struggle it was so hard for me to want to write, especially when I write about food. I was becoming very unhappy about food. I was depressed about food. I hated food. Yes, me, I hated food. I loathed working on the weekly meal plan. I loathed cooking delicious foods for others. I loathed cooking bland food for me. However, I did learn to embrace what I could eat and to make it as interesting as possible.
I learned so much during that period. I wish I could share it all with you, but it’s locked inside me as a part of my personal journey. The best thing I can tell you all is to allow the difficulties in your life act as teachers of bigger lessons. You’ll be surprised how much more you’ll walk away with if you’re open to learning.
