Adventures on The Planet “Glutenia”

Gluten-Free Fiction Date 001; Hour 01
I was just out of my doctor’s office. It seemed soooooo long ago, yet it was probably only a few moments to someone anywhere else. But I had arrived. Per my recent diagnosis, when leaving her office, I exited her doorway onto the Planet Glutenia! This is what I saw.
I wondered if I could breath… and I could. I was afraid to take those first steps. But I did.
My doc had said something about “Celiac Disease”…???
I wondered, “Am I a Celiac?” “What the heck is a Celiac?”
“Will I find more Celiacs here?”
I closed my eyes and tried to fall asleep, praying to have nice dreams… Perhaps I can wake up some day on a different planet that the one I just walked onto. Or even better — maybe I will learn to adjust and possibly I can learn to thrive as a free person…. a Gluten-Free person… on Glutenia.
More later… I hope.
