IrishHeart, I haven't seen you here for a few days now. I'm a bit worried. Are you OK? I miss you!

You have done so much for me and I need to thank you again. Everyone here has been so helpful, but you are the one who has given me the most unjudgemental comfort and understanding. To me, you are the "face" of celiac.com. I have found it easier to talk to you than anyone else, either online or in real life. It's not so much that I feel like I know you better - it's that I feel you know ME better than anyone.

With all of the ups and downs I have had for the past year, there were times I got so depressed I felt like giving up. Somehow you were always able to find the exact words I needed to hear. You gave me hope when I had none. You gave me great advice. When I would make a mistake you would correct me so gently. I felt like a fool when I found out my vitamins had gluten in them, and if it weren't for you I would still be glutening myself today.

I love ALL of the wonderful people here, and I have gotten great help and support from all of you. But IrishHeart is so special to me that on a few occasions when I was home at night and feeling sick, knowing I could talk to IrishHeart right here in the morning made it easier to get through the night.

So please, let us know if you're alright. I owe you so much and I want you to know that if there is anything I can do for you, I am here. I hope you're just on vacation and having the time of your life. Let us know. :)

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Thanks, Jersey! No wonder I didn't see it - it was in the cooking forum, and as everybody knows by now, I am the world's worst cook! :lol:

Ha, then you understand my less than stellar computer skills.... add that to a temperamental laptop and it makes for some pretty hard to read posts.

Glad you were able to decipher it:)

IrishHeart is like the heartbeat of the forum. Who knows how many lives she has saved?
She's like a beacon of hope to all who enter here.

She's stern when someone is being pig headed, she's suportive when someone feels weak, she has a great sense of humor, and is so giving of her time and knowledge. She has a lot of hard earned knowledge! She has come from the brink of death..and her struggles continue, but she's always so giving to others.

Bartful said it best..she lets others know that she knows them, and that's so comforting. :D

I :wub: Irish too!

She also occasionally needs a break, though, right guys?

I'm sure her hubby is appreciating the time she's spending off the forum :wink: !
