I had a doctor's appointment on Tuesday, the first one in, oh, 7 or 8 years I guess. The doctor ordered a blood test for Celiac Disease. For those unfamiliar with it, it is an autoimmune disorder where the body cannot process gluten, and it causes damage to the intestines and leads to a host of other health issues and, if untreated, organ failure. Sounds pleasant, no?

I'm a little freaked out by the prospect, but on the other hand I know something is wrong and I need not only an explanation, but a way to fix it.

Have I ever mentioned hospitals/doctor's offices terrify me?

Yep, fun times.
