I am 23 years old, and was diagnosed with celiac disease when I was 6 or 7. I was on the gluten-free diet until around age 12 when I miraculously "recovered," or so I thought, until last month when my problems started all over again.

Ok so I was at Walmart a couple of weeks ago and was looking at the rice cakes, which are like stale cardboard (but since I can eat them I love them) and ran into a lady who's daughter has celiac as well. It was really amazing, I had never met anyone with the disease, other than myself of course, and being new to North Carolina, she gave me some really good advice about where to shop. I know she will probably never run across this, but I just wanted to thank her for all her help and great ideas, she made me realize that it is not a punishment to have to eat different than everyone else, that I too can have the "good stuff", I just have to learn how to make it. So to her, Thank you and GOD BLESS!
