I saw this on a page I follow,
Explorations Early Learning, and it reminded me how kids don't have to have celiac to be greatly impacted by it.
Many of us (and I raise my hand as part of this group) are impacted by gluten emotionally. I was a yeller. I can't imagine myself screaming at my kids now, but sadly, I know I did. Gluten makes me angry, depressed, and generally mad at the world. Thank goodness it wasn't 100% of the time, but now when I get gluten it is!
Its not any easier to "just get over" than hunger pangs or being cold on a winter day without the proper attire. But with the proper gluten free diet, its amazing how that dark cloud can move aside to let the sun shine in; for the person who needs to be gluten free as well as those who are a part of his/her life.
And if you are like me, impacted for years before discovering your answer, and then being blessed to discover a much more peaceful life, please help others discover this too.
Our kids are waiting.
