The Rumors of My Demise are Greatly Exaggerated

I've been AWOL for a while and I apologize. Apparently the combination of the stress of my toxic group at the evil day job and my Type-A personality's insistence on trying to do it all made a really bad combination for my health.

I've been diagnosed (so far) with obstructive sleep apnea and a heart arrythmia (probably congenital and not horribly severe) and, as of about two weeks ago, celiac disease. This has, as you might imagine, taken most of my time and attention for a few months and pretty much everything else has had to take a back seat.

Thankfully, I am feeling a LOT better as I am getting the various conditions treated. I'm back to writing now that I have more energy than just that needed for survival. So you should hear a lot more from me in the near future!

Wow - lot to deal with all at once! I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. I was diagnosed with celiac in 1997; it definitely gets easier to follow the diet with practice.

Thanks for the note, Chris. I'm glad it gets easier. Just a single trip to the grocery store takes me 90 minutes at the moment.

You're doing better than I did - my first trip to the store? I abandoned my cart in the middle of the aisle and left crying.

I cannot recommend the magazine Gluten Free Living enough, especially their recent "Best of" issue. They provide lots of great information, backed up by science (compared to some of the urban legendy stuff you find on the internet).

If you want to ask questions via email, the best way to reach me is via the email in my sidebar. You are more than welcome to do so.
