Thank You Everyone!

This is my first post but not my first time at this site.
I am so thankful to everyone that has posted caring, informative, realistic information about how to live with this disease.
I found out (my own research) that i had celiac disease about 3 months ago and went on the gluten-free diet at the same time. I started feeling better right away but am just starting to feel as though i have my healthy life back in the last few weeks. I am trying not to feel depressed because i feel like i lost the last three years of my life feeling sick everyday.
The advice i have found on this site has made me realize that i am not alone or psychotic or "just stressed out".
I just want to encourage everyone else to stick with the gluten free and healthy diet (even though it seems nearly impossible to resist the urge to run to the bakery for a chocolate cake and cookies!).
It is worth the limitations to feel great again because my body is now so quiet and content!
