It’s that time ladies and gents. Time to evaluate our personal failures of the year before and vow to do better in the fresh, new, one. I’ve got plenty, but instead of confessing every last oopsie to you fine people, I’m just going to focus on three areas of improvement for this celiac. Well, that’s three plus one huge one that is TBA. Yes, that is a cliff-hanger! Stay tuned.
In the meantime, here are my three gluten-free new year’s resolutions.
1. Take My Damn Vitamins — As I tell everyone else to not forget to bulk up on their vitamins and minerals, mine hang out in the cabinet. That’s dumb. And possibly one of the reasons I don’t feel awesome even without the daily gluten consumption. Honestly, what is my problem?
2. Always Carry Snacks — Lest I find myself cruising into In ‘N’ Out for the fourth time in a week, I’ve got to load up on the g-free mixed nuts. Like, yesterday. You should too! Or just buy stock in In ‘N’ Out. Either/Or.
3. Take No Shit — As I sit here waiting for my Zen tea to brew, I’m going to take advantage of my last bursts of rage before the embers are out.
I’m incredibly lucky that the majority of my friends and family members have been nothing but supportive since my diagnosis. If they do any fun-poking it is behind my back, as it should be. I’ve had more gluten-free meals prepared for me, and more accommodations made than any one person should ever expect. My horrific restaurant experiences have been few and far between. However.
When someone attacks a celiac, just for the fact that she can’t eat gluten, I’m going to fight back. No, it’s not battling against hate, homophobia, or racism; and therefore I should calmly educate the jerk and walk away. But 2013 just might be the year that I educate someone with a swift kick to the ass. So watch out, assholes.
What are your resolutions? Are they as pleasant as mine?
Happy New Year GIMBers!!! I love you all.
