My Thanksgiving was safe…

on 23 November, 2007

well safer. I did my best not to eat gluten anything. I figured I would just give it a try for Thanksgiving. I feel fine today.

My dh’s cousin is cutting into a pie and she says, “this pie is dairy and gluten-free.” My jaw dropped right that moment. Turns out she has been dairy and gluten-free because of how sick she has been. Her doctor’s found nothing wrong with her. So, after some research she gave it a try. She was better until she went back to the doctor and he made her go back on gluten for testing. She had tests on Wednesday and stopped eating gluten and dairy right away.

So, we got to talk all about gluten free and dairy free. We talked about the link to a gfcf for those on the spectrum as well. She knew the prophet had Asperger’s (she works with children) even though no one had shared his diagnosis with her. It was a great talk. And, it was one of those points in life where you wonder if you are going down the right path…and then some one comes along and reaffirms it for you.

    Oh that is so wonderful! Somewhere there is always someone who understands. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving, and I hope the cousin shares the pie recipe!
