When I was first diagnosed, I found such a great amount of comfort on this forum.
Lately, I've noticed - not just in this thread - this self-satisfied notion among "long time" celiacs and a real condescension to anyone who hasn't been at it as long.
It's turned me right off. Minimizing the experience of "newer" celiacs will drive them away. Like me.
the difference may be that I have been gluten free for almost 4 years .
At 9 months gluten free I was still grieving the loss of gluten and was ( like you) searching for a gluten free bread that was the same ( taste ,texture ) as gluten filled bread .
Now, after almost 4 years gluten free there is absolutely no temptation or desire for gluten in any shape or form .
