Connecting the celiac disease and food allergy/intolerance community together by sharing our stories to food freedom. From our beginning struggles to striving after a diagnosis, we can all relate and help each other out by sharing what we’ve learned and our unique personal journeys.
As long as you keep sending in your amazing stories and keep giving me incredible feedback, the Freedom Feature will be able to grow, inspire, and accomplish its goal of being a platform for us, food allergy THRIVERS, to share and connect! I love getting everyone’s emails back to me with their stories and answers to my questions. We all have so many similarities in our journeys, each and every one is so different. That’s why I’m always so excited to share these stories with you all. They’re inspiring, heart-breaking, beautiful, and real. No matter if you have food allergies or not, I know we each can take something away from them. So today I’m excited to share Georgianna, from Celtic Celiac, (who just celebrated her 6 year celiac anniversary) and her amazing journey to freedom.
Background: Who are you?
I am an Irish American girl (or really woman I suppose at this point seeing as I’m in my 30s) living a gluten free life on Long Island New York with my husband Michael (an aspiring Registered Dietician), our four chickens, a crippled bearded dragon and a few fish. Professionally I have various roles. I am a social worker, writer, editor, researcher, and owner of the site Celtic Celiac. I’m passionate about restrictive diet management, the psycho-social influences of health, food justice issues, and preventative health. I also love the outdoors and try to hike, walk, and explore as often as possible. I’ve recently started purchasing more camping equipment so I can get more serious about camping and longer hikes.Read More
