Okay for the tax thing I just realized it's on the home page of Celiac.com, so... Scroll down towards the bottom under Celiac.com Site index, it's the 5th link from the bottom. Save all your receipts from stores, online purchases, etc... Just make sure you're very careful and honest with what you submit because they may audit you, and make sure that you were doctor diagnosed, not self proclaimed - which I doub't anyone sane would even consider. But I hope it helps!

word of caution though they are made on the same lines so there is a chance traces could get in there.Not for the super sensitive.

This thread has really made my day! It's been great reading everyone's positive words. I'm printing this off and keeping an ongoing list on my frig!

* Being gluten-free has really made me aware of my nutritional needs.

* I have lost some nagging unwanted pounds.

* I have decreased my joint pain by atleast 75%!

* My husband tells me my "restless leg syndrome" is not a problem as it used to be (I guess I would kick him so much it would wake him up.

* I have energy to take on more activites.

* I love having the extra couple of hours a day to enjoy instead of napping.

I'll keep thinking of more, thanks for the spark.

:D I have to agree with what everyone has said so far, except for shedding all those unwanted pounds. How are you doing it? I lost 20 and I fell like I've gained some of it back and I don't want it!!!

The best things for me is the knowledge that I have gained, the "friends" I have made, and the encouragement from everyone to let me know I am not alone.

:( I hate to be the "party pooper," but Cheetos & Fritolay "say" they are gluten free, but if you check the label, they contain MSG = gluten. I have a major reaction after eating them. Sorry!!! They are one thing I really do miss... does anyone know of a good gluten free cheese curl?? Thanks!

Today, especially in the US, MSG is made with sugar cane or sugar beet. MUCH more cost effective to produce. Thus, Frito-Lay must be using non-gluten containing MSG in it's products if it is claiming to be gluten free. Sites I've read basically state if you're buying a product made in the US that contains MSG, it will be gluten free. But, do not assume the same for imports.

Thanks for the MSG info. ~ Then I must just be very sensitive to the use of same lines to make gluten items. Bummer!! I can't eat any of their products without a serious reaction. :( I thought it must be the MSG... oh well. :blink:

We don't have to take any yucky medicine where the side effects are worse than the original problem. Also, we eat healthier and it gives us a reason to come together and discuss our lives!

Also, I appreciate food more now than I used to. I waste less food and basically cherish all my special gluten free foods. Like gluten-free bagels, and gluten-free bread.

It really has been amazing how little food I waste. I used to look at leftovers as something less than attractive but now....
if I have gluten-free leftovers, that are foods that I don't have to forage for.
Lunch has been my toughest time of day and having the leftovers has truly been my savior.

One of our family friends has cancer and she has to undergo very serious chemotherapy treatments.

I feel so blessed that all I have to do to get well is eat right.
