It had been a long road, but she was comfortable and able to spend more hours at work than ever before.  Then she had a stroke.

Theodore “Teddy” Berman was in middle school when his life-long aversion to cookies and cake became excruciating stomach aches and his body stopped growing.  Luckily, he ran into someone living with celiac disease and discovered the

They tell their recovery stories to Adrienne Lauby.  With thanks to Sheela Gunn-Cushman for editing assistance.
