Living with psoriasis

One day in particular sticks out in my head, I think I was in grade 8 at the time (so, 13 years old?), I was playing in a baseball tournament, my Catholic school against one of the public schools. At the time I was Catholic, I’ve since recovered ;) I was standing near the batter’s cage, I’d be up next. I was sweating, and the psoriasis on my head and down my back were itching like crazy! I had my hair up in a ponytail because it was so hot out, and someone said “eeeewwww what’s that rash all over you?!” Kids can be cruel! Read More

Happy Holidays!

The holidays can be a trying time for those of us with celiac disease, or food allergies and intolerances. Avoiding gluten this time of year is tricky, to say the least! I have spent the last week and a half or so watching everybody at work munching on some of my old favourites of the season; gingerbread, shortbread, pannetone, sugar cookies, squares of all sorts, and cakes of all kinds. It’s been non-stop junk food in the office, and not a single bite of it can I eat. Yes, it’s tricky. But I know if I indulge in any of it, I’ll be sick for weeks. In pain, constipated, bloated, foggy brained, migraines, and etc… So what do I do? How do I avoid all the crap that I can’t eat? Well it’s simple really. I just don’t eat it. It’s not willpower. It’s life. Read More

Confessions of an Autoimmune Collector

About 3 or 4 years or so ago, I was having a heckuva time with extreme exhaustion, chronic vertigo, scatter brain (one step up [down?] from the usual autoimmune brain fog), systemic inflammation and pain, and just general overall bad health that the doctors could find no reason for at all. I lost my job because of it. Of course given that I already had 3 diagnosed autoimmune diseases I kept telling them it was probably another one. Or maybe even two or more! They ran tests, and they kept telling me results were "inconclusive". One rheumatologist said to "come back when you have more or worse symptoms" and a neurologist told me I probably need a psychiatrist, because he couldn't find anything wrong with me. Read More
