For the longest time, I suffered from a variety of medical issues—from digestion problems and unhealthy weight loss to extreme fatigue and depression…and that’s the short list! When I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I realized it wasn’t my fault. The condition was beyond my control, but I had the power to decide how to handle it.
Life changed in a big way. In a sense, I was learning how to live a whole new lifestyle with little guidance or know-how. Still, through research and trial-and-error, I developed ways to overcome the challenges.
It wasn’t easy. There were years of deciphering ingredient labels, questioning restaurant menus, avoiding social gatherings, and feeling like I could never be too careful. All to protect the one thing I truly needed in life—my health. Along the way, though, I realized something: I wasn’t alone.
So, I decided to build a community. I wanted to help others with similar conditions navigate this journey. I wanted to create resources for my children, who might also be affected by this disease, so they can enjoy good health throughout their lives. That’s how me & gfree began.
I know what you’re going through, because I’m living it, too. This isn’t temporary, it’s not a fad, and it’s not a choice. For us, it’s a way of life—and life is meant to be lived well!
Let’s view this as an opportunity to try new things and enjoy new experiences. Let’s stop being the subjects of our diagnosis and become the masters of our future. me & gfree is here to help guide the way, and I hope you’ll join us.
