A year later, 2004... no symptoms, no pills... I expect a card from the pharmaceutical industry, "Hope you get better at being ill."

From a woman turning 40 ("Therefore," the doctor says, "it happens when you reach forty") it's always all about age. I had pica, reflux, restless leg, joint pain, IBS, migranes, alopecia, exhaustion, neuralgia, anemia, and worst of all bifocals! I now have none of these! Not even glasses!

I spent 2005 straightening my learning curve of celiac disease and still every day of that first year I wondered if the curve was a full circle and that there was no reprieve.

But, as I look back, I promise you there is. Seven years later, I'm the proof.
