I created a four-panel comic for the Food-themed issue of the Nib Magazine. Although I could write pages and pages on living with my obnoxious food allergies, I chose to focus on one aspect: the fact that Celiac disease is considered a disability in the United States. My diagnosis (a fraught topic of its own!) changed my life, mostly for the better, but it continues to be a journey to advocate for myself and accept my body’s limitations.
I’m proud to have my work in this issue filled with interesting comics journalism and personal stories about food! Thank you to editors Matt Bors and Eleri Harris. You can find the comic on The Nib website here.
