72 Hour Kit For A Gluten Free College Student
This kit works well, whether you are a college student or not. I did this one for my daughter who is away at college. Last year was the snowiest it has been in many years, where she attends. They had some power outages and later flooding and had days they were asked to not shower or flush toilets. We didn’t know how bad it was going to get and wanted to make sure she had some things together in case they had to evacuate.

Celiac Symptoms & Their Severity- How Bad Do You Have It?
Many people think that the severity of your symptoms is a sign of “how bad you have it”. This is one of my pet peeves because you don’t have to have severe symptoms to have serious damage occurring to your intestines, when you have celiac disease. Everyone with celiac disease has it really bad!
