A Decade Since Diagnosis: 10 Years, 10 Lessons

Recently, I had my 10-year Celiaciversary! To commemorate it, I thought I'd share this blog post with you all...


10 years ago, my mother sat my sister and I down and told us that one of us might have Celiac just like our younger brother. Not in a million years did I think that it would be me. I was tall for my age, slightly overweight, and, with no other apparent health issues was quite far from the clearly sick boy that my brother was at the time. But the blood work didn’t lie and neither did the endoscopy. So 10 years ago today, I began a journey that is going to last for the rest of my life—my journey with Celiac Disease.

I was diagnosed with Celiac at 12 years of age, when no one really knew what it was, and had to learn to live with it through the most formative years of my life. It was definitely challenging, but I’ve become a much better person because of it and have learned a bunch of things along the way. To share a little of my knowledge, I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 things I’ve learned in the past 10 years.
