what! me, wheat intolerant?

i think i might be wheat intolerant and i don't really want it to be true.

i've always binned food allergies and intolerances in roughly the same category as sick building syndrome and chronic fatigue syndrome. i won't deny your right to claim that you might suffer from these broadly defined and difficult to prove maladies, but i was quiet sure i'd never suffer from them and was always a little suspicious of people who claimed to fall victim to them. me thinks the previous statements require copious filling-in-the-blanks, but it's late and i'll leave that as an exercise for the reader.

in any case, i've been feeling "not entirely correct" for some time and became increasingly suspicious that the symptoms might, just might, be indicative of wheat intolerace. just to prove myself wrong, i decided to gradually cut out wheat from my diet. and dammit, i feel better. some very real, yet difficult to quantify, physical symptoms have subsided and i'm feeling like i might just want to go completely wheat free. i have no idea if i'm gluten intolerant or wheat intolerant or what - all i know is the less foods i eat that contain wheat, the better i feel.

i don't think you realize how embarrasing this is for someone well versed in the the scientific method.

eppur si muove.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
