Memorial Day

 

 

That’s it for the last few days.  I feel like I’m about to make another excuse for the lack of content, but dammit, it’s a good one.

As I mentioned recently, I’m in the middle of trying to sell a house, handle the bills for someone else, and I’m trying to find a potential sibling.  To further the last goal, I took a 23andMe test on the off chance that she also joined one of these programs.  I’m already on Ancestry, but no luck with that one.  I decided that since I already had an ancestry test, I might as well go with the health test as well.

The good news is the results came back a lot sooner than I expected.  The bad news is that the results show that I’m likely to have a wheat sensitivity or have celiac disease.  What’s worse is that I was scarfing down a pizza while reading that part.

The short version is that I have a couple genes that flipped from a T to a C or vice versa, and because of this it could cause my immune system to treat wheat like an infection.

I have a doctor’s appointment scheduled in a week or so, but in the meantime, I’m trying to go gluten free.  And it sucks.  Not the food replacements, but having to check EVERY FUCKING LABEL.  Seriously, Pringles has wheat in it.  Granola bars aren’t necessarily safe.  Fucking Rice Krispies has malt flavoring, which comes from barley.

I don’t think I’ve craved a pizza so much in my life.  At least I now have an excuse to try a gluten-free one. 😐

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
