The forest begins to thin, the long winter snow begins to melt, and the silky sun peaks out from behind the rugged mountain my feet are climbing. I'm in utter awe and shock as I stare at the warmth of the sun, mesmerized. I have Celiac Disease. I finally know where all my pain is coming from. I finally have my answer.
I tested positive. Wow. Ummm....yeah...wow. Today has been a roller coaster. I've been waiting for the results all week...and when they finally arrived, my heart was pounding. I knew that if the test was negative, I would be headed back to the drawing board. And, as we all know..the what the crap is going on and where to I go next, room...yeah-not so fun. I literally screamed out loud in excitement when I found out my test was positive. Like loud. I just can't believe it. I have Celiac. My costochondritis IS my celiac. I have costo because of Celiac!! WHAT?! I'm gunna get well?!? Breathe, Lucy. Breathe.
A million things have been running through my mind. I'll share more later. But I know that many of you rock stars have been waiting on these results with me- so I wanted to share. Hugs to all of you. I'm sure the wheels are turning in some of your heads. -) Cause yall- I ain't the only previously undiagnosed Celiac who has costo. Holla!
All the glory and praise to God for today. In every way, I'm so thankful to Him for taking me down this road. It's so humbling. My heart is celebrating in this exciting truth about my body...and warmly, I can feel the sun on my face and smell the sweet aroma of the approaching Spring.
