Glutenberg has hit the shelves in the state of New Jersey, and it's quite a treat to have access to a beer in a can. Not too long ago, there were just a few gluten-free beers, and now there are so many options. It also wasn't so long ago that everyone wanted all of their beers in a bottle.

One of the problems with any chronic illness is that the way in which it changes an individual's life can be ambiguous. Trying to pin down exactly what is different can be difficult. There is change, and it can start to feel overwhelming. When this happens - in relation to Celiac Disease - the person ceases to work through their transition from what their life looked like before diagnosis to a new and functional (and hopefully happy!) gluten free life.

Sorting through what has changed and what hasn't can be confusing.
