Of course...

"...Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things..."

Okay so I don't eat meat and I hate noodles. But I love apple streudels, cookies, biscotti and cake. I love pita, baguettes, bagels and rolls. I love pizza, pasta, croutons and ciabatta bread.

Basically I love stuff made out of wheat, oats, barley, rye and pretty much every other derivation of grain there is.

But now, as if I don't have enough to worry about in my life, I have to worry about gluten. Just when I thought I had merely developed a freak allergy to pizza that would go away once it was forgotten about, it turns out that I am allergic to gluten. Coeliac disease apparently (if you wanna' get technical).

How can I be allergic to gluten?

Why me?

Isn't enough that I am allergic to any and all things that come out of the water?

This sucks. I need a new body. Next thing you know I really will be allergic to air...

And to think I was there when all the little bumps started coming out...
Don't say you're allergic to gluten until you've seen a doctor (please don't be allergic to gluten, we're running out of places to go eat!)

hmmmm did you think i came up with that diagnosis all by myself? It was a doctor who suggested I might have that and then the evidence has leaned in his favor. I am going to go see an allergist though. There better be a cure for this!!

It could be worst, you could be allergic to the sun.
