Oh, FUN.

On this, the last morning of 2008, I have made a brilliant discovery that will affect the rest of my life forever:

Wheat is one of my migraine triggers.

If you'd like to know more about migraines (and some of the foods that are major triggers), you can read about them online (like here). Dr. Theda also highly recommends this book: Heal Your Headache. Reading that book saved me a trip to the dentist to have my bite corrected during one of my worst episodes.

I'm hoping that one day, I'll actually be excited about this. (Probably sometime when I don't have a headache.) I've suffered with terrible headaches most of my life, so it's old hat (pun intended) at this point. I can't actually imagine my life improving. But a New Year is as good a time as any to start trying.

May 2009 bring a better life to us all!

what a great discovery, though sorry it didn't come sooner for you.

if you're interested, Valerie has many many wheat-free recipes that she's tried out (her eldest sister has a number of food issues).

But I don't WANNA have issues! I just want to be a normal kid!

(I like having an excuse to email Val, though.) :)

At first, going sans wheat is a pain in the tuckus. But the lack of pain is so blissful that you reconcile to it before long.

Welcome to the world of wheat & gluten-free living!

In the category of too crazy for fiction, my best friend's brother-in-law has psychotic episodes due to a wheat allergy. If you need to go gluten-free, I'd be happy to wrangle his recipe book. It's guaranteed to stop the angry voices in your head...
