I Am Such A Liar

I don't have Celiac Disease, guys. Calm down! It's okaaaaaay!
I have NCGS - Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity. And if you think that's boring, I have way more banal tidbits about my personal health struggles of 2018 I can share with you. There were multiple blood tests, thyroid biopsies, ultrasounds on lots of things, naturopath appointments, GP appointments, specialist appointments. But in a nutshell, what I've discovered is that gluten is the devil (for me personally, I mean...if you like gluten that's awesome and please enjoy a danish for me).
The fatigue and brain fog are mostly gone. I do get the odd day of unexplained fatigue, but not to the extent I felt when I was eating gluten. It was nuts - I could not function.
I've jumped really hard onto the Marie Kondo bandwagon. You know you're feeling better when you have boundless energy to fold your underwear with love. So! I'm excited to enjoy this year in full (or full-ish) health because last year was a big ol' bummer in that department.
