I have coeliac disease. As long as I am in control of what I cook and eat, however, I can avoid any problems.
Eating out can be difficult as explaining flour is tricky in foreign languages and even in England! Gluten poisoning renders me sleepy for a 4 to 5-hour duration and stays in the system for 6 months after consumption.
During my time in Yangon, I by and large avoided anything with gluten; there were a couple of sleep-ridden days and a few times where my stomach was less than thrilled at the move. Overall though, I stayed in good gut health!
Upon moving to the village, it became more difficult. In Sittwe, I noticed I was becoming sluggish. I suspected that my favorite eatery was slipping MSG into their stir-fry. In the village, I noticed there were huge sacks of MSG dotted about. I tried gently to explain to my student that this was very dangerous to me, but he simply replied with; ‘Yes, teacher, I don't like it either, but it’s their tradition.’
