Thank you to everybody who encouraged me to get the gluten out of my house.
My friend came over 2 weeks ago and took all my gluten away. We also got rid of all the containers, pans, spoons, and cutting boards that possibly had gluten hiding in them. She wiped down all my cupboard shelves and cleaned out my drawers. Then I washed all the hot pads and oven mitts.

I can't believe how free I feel! :D

If anyone is debating whether they can make the switch to being totally gluten free, I say go for it!
Life is too short to be thinking of gluten and cross contamination all the time.

I've suffered from intestinal problems since childhood.
Age 30--I was told I had IBS and that I'd just have to "get used to it".
Age 33--I went wheat-free and felt a little better.
Age 36--A friend was diagnosed with celiac disease and recommended that I get tested too. I demanded a test even though the doctor assured me I did "not want it". Test was positive and I have been gluten free ever since.
Age 37 and Counting--I never would have guessed my body could feel this great! :)

I absolutely agree that life is easier and healthier if your home is gluten-free. It helps so much to know there's one place to relax and not worry about everything you touch and eat :)
