Thanks to Anne Blackwood, for inspiring me and giving me the courage to tell this story! This is the first time I've written something in this style, so if you could drop a comment or a review with some feedback, that would be great!
I have Celiac Disease, which is a condition where my small intestine attacks itself if I eat certain foods (to put it simply). I was born with it, but was diagnosed at age 5 and have been gluten-free ever since! Feel free to ask questions, if you want. It doesn't make me uncomfortable to talk about this stuff :)
this is an old piece that i just felt like republishing since i am cleaning out my portfolio and found it :)
Well, I was really surprised because I had never thought that someone who had a disease and had to go to the doctor's a lot would resent them for it! Of course, I totally understand why you would at the time, but it had just never occurred to me before reading this.
Maybe at the end of the piece, the author can include an official definition of the disease for all who want to know.
Oh, sweetie, I hurt for you. I am so sorry that you have to go through this. I hope you find a way to cope with the suffering. I will be praying for you. :)
