5 Months

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on June 30, 2008

Wow.  It’s been 5 months.  That is a long time.  I am kind of awestruck.  Obviously 5 months gluten free/celiac would happen, just like 6 months, a year and 10 years will, but wow.  I didn’t realize that I have been eating this way for so long.  I kind of don’t notice it anymore, at least not at home.  My friends are getting better and better about remembering.  Often (at school) they would ask what I was eating, or if I could eat something.  Though, whenever something is spur of the moment, like someone brings a cake for a birthday, or someone says that they don’t want their cookie, then they don’t remember until after they’ve started eating the treat.  Thats fine.  When there is a big cake, I can tell, that unless someone says, “This is Gluten Free, it has no Wheat, Barley, Rye, Oats, or Additives,” I won’t be eating the cake.  Thats ok.  Because, honestly, a lot of the time, the gluten free stuff tastes really good.  Yes, it takes getting used to.  Yes, it’s not the same as wheat.  But most importantly, I can eat it.  So what if it takes experimenting, doesn’t all baking?  With that said, this is 5 months.  I am ready to start getting into shape.  Be the athletic person I was, no I am.  I need to be that typical, fit, healthy teenager, that my friends are.  That I was, and I know I can be.  I will be.  Just give me time.  That’s all I need.

Enjoy your milestones,

Congratulations Lauren. It keeps getting easier and easier as time goes on. I’ve been gluten free over 10 years now.

It’s good that this issue was discovered while you were still young :)

Every milestone should be celebrated… if only by eating something wonderful and gluten-free! I’ve let time get away from me, but now you’ve pointed your milestone out – I’ve been gluten-free for one year and 7 months! Every day is better!
