There are people who want the world to know they are not gluten free by choice. These are usually individuals diagnosed with celiac disease who feel forced to live in a way they find distasteful (pun intended).
I think this is a sad way to live. Things happen over which we have no control. But one thing always remains totally within our control — our attitude.
When I first began the gluten free lifestyle I was afraid it would not be the answer to my serious health problems. But I was also afraid it would be. How could I not be angry and resentful learning that years of suffering, much of it at the hands of doctors, had been for nothing?
When symptoms started going away and I began thinking clearly, none of that mattered. Staying away from gluten isn’t a problem for me. All I have to do is remember the way my life was. I will never go back. I choose to live gluten free because I choose health.
Being resentful over not being able to eat certain things is not an option for me. Why would I resent something that gave me my life back? Life is good.
