Jax and Me Black WhiteI hope WriteMeWell connects my love of writing with my quest to find solutions to problems, especially my problems that are other people’s problems, too. Having celiac disease certainly can be a big problem, but it’s also a grand adventure as I discover new foods, new restaurants, new products, and new sources of information about living gluten freely.

I enrolled last year in a clinical research trial of a medication that may help prevent further destruction of the GI system that happens when we get “glutened,” that is, cross-contaminated by a glutinous substance sneaking into a gluten free one. I didn’t get randomized into the actual test of the drug because the gluten free diet has worked “too well” and my gut wasn’t damaged enough. Talk about a mixed blessing.

So I’m here to share what it’s like to be a subject in a series of research trials known as life with chronic illness. I’ll share what works and what doesn’t work, at least for me. If I enroll in new trials or encounter new health issues, I’ll share about those, too, and I’d love for you to share yours with me.

I think God gave me myriad health problems so I could become a better, kinder, more helpful person, one who never takes for granted this all too short life, and one who just might help others enjoy their lives, too.

Thanks for joining me!
