    • Ceph you go girl! I know what you mean about the learning curve. We are wheat-free but try to live the stticrer gluten-free life. I figure if I’m gluten-free than I’m wheat-free for sure.It was hard learning to think wheat-free. Like I can have chicken-fried steak but I use rice flour for the coating and cornstarch to make gravy. I also found going to the internet for recipes made life easier. There are so many people out there willing to share their gluten-free journey. You can do and it can even be tasty 🙂

    • Thank you for sharing your story in this wonuerfdl book. I couldn’t put it down. My brother was diagnosed with LBD in September. He is 64 and a marathon runner. In the last 30 years he has run and finished in 170 marathons. Right now he can hardly walk. He knows that my mission right now is to find a cure for him. He is in a skilled nursing care facility and only up until recently was I able to stop crying. I know there are more tears, but for now I’m going to be strong. I have been giving him some Chinese Medicine (ganoderma lucidum) that has been around for 4,000 years that helps with dementia and the Parkinson’s like symptoms. I’m hoping this is the miracle I have been looking for. So far it seems to be helping. He is walking better and most days knows who I am instead of calling me Mommy! We are all here to help each other. It is so helpful to me to hear other people’s stories. Blessings to all who read this.

    • I think I’m the mom whose comment you ptsoed about… And, yup, I’m still in the stressful part of the learning curve! I don’t eat meat (except occasional fish and seafood), limit my dairy to cultured dairy like cheese and sour cream with very little ordinary (milk does wacky things to me)… And now no gluten. Quitting meat was very hard. I had to relearn how to cook. Limiting milk was inconvenient. It took me awhile to find out which brands of soy, rice and almond milks I liked for what purposes. But eliminating gluten is the most difficult yet. I have been aiming for 99%+ GF for her and 95%+ GF for me. I’m grateful for the support I’m finding online and am glad I’m a creative cook!My DD is a few days from 10 months old and I have no intentions of weaning her until she chooses to. I’m hoping I will be able to have a bit of gluten here and there once her rash is cleared up (she doesn’t have significant GI or behavioral effects from exposure) and that she will outgrow it. But I’m not holding my breath. So we are wheatless for the foreseeable future.

    • I started radeing Elizabeth’s book on my blackberry line by line and could not put it down except for the drive home where I transferred to my ipad and read straight through. I laughed, even cried, learned a lot about a disease I knew little of and was inspired by a true love story. This truly is a must read for anyone. If dealing with dementia Elizabeth’s book will inform, and provide solice to you. It is written with wit, compassion, hindsight and foresight, and eloquence and simplicity.

Here is to Elizabeth for her courage and commitment during and after and for sharing this story and part of her life.
