After more than a week of being gluten-free and still getting sick, I finally made another doctor's appointment. Being new to town, I explained what my previous doctor prescribed - Prilosec - and how it was not working.

After a two-hour wait and paying a hefty bill, my doctor finally told me that I have acid reflux and prescribed Nexium (a $150/month prescription btw). I was disappointed that he didn't tell me anything new as the first symptom I said I had was acid reflux, but I'm hopeful that this overly-priced treatment will help.

The good news is that I can eat gluten again! I can't tell you how starved I was this past week. We managed to find some great recipes and had a lot of support from readers and colleagues, for which I am very grateful. Now let's go have a gluten party.
