Getting Back Up Again

Hey readers, sorry for missing my post yesterday. I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it on this blog before, but I’m gluten and casein intolerant. For those who aren’t familiar with those terms, it basically means that I can’t eat wheat products or dairy products because the fire up my immune system and my body essentially starts attacking itself.

To explain what it feels like for me to get dosed with casein, think of the last time you had the flu. Now, not the full-blown flu, but the day or two when you knew it was coming but had no way to stop it. It’s that sort of thing – achy and dizzy, with a head full of mucus.

Gluten – well, that’s a whole different ballgame. That makes me shake all over and makes it difficult to even speak.

Yeah, it’s not the most fun life, but at the same time I do feel like it’s turning my poor eating habits around, so a silver lining to everything, right?

Anyway, I tell you this because I missed yesterday’s post after getting a huge hidden dose of butter. Not an excuse, but I had trouble concentrating on much more than putting one foot in front of the other, and even that had some iffy moments. I’m still not 100% today, but it’s an improvement, and I’ll take it.

In the meantime, things are getting close on Room 3. I’m expecting the edits back tomorrow, and will be working double-time to get them as soon as I can. From there it’s straight on to release, and the print version is just about ready to go once they’re in.

Hang in there, things are about to get exciting. Just a little more…

  1. Yeesh. Eating out must be like walking through a field of land mines.

  2. As a community, Austin is very good about supporting all different sorts of diets. Mr. Aniko and I were bewildered by the amount and variety of gluten-free, wheat-free, meat-free, totally-natural options available here. I’m sure that over the past five years, and with the greater acknowledgment of how widespread the gluten intolerance is in our population, those have become more standard offerings elsewhere, too. In any case, I am sorry you suffered, and I hope you continue to find foods that don’t hurt you.
