Thanks icelandgirl & Ennis_TX. Hopefully more people will respond.

@icelandgirl - Congratulations on your 3 year GFD anniversary!

It's good for me to read the different responses. I was really upset (and still am) about getting glutened after 1 month. I was finally starting to feel better and get some energy. I'm also upset because it was in my home, which I cleaned multiple times like a mad woman. I threw away the pan that I think was the culprit. I'm at 5 days since my last glutening  and hope to break my 1 month record. :P

Hi Sara,

Thank you!  I can't believe it's been 3 years...so crazy.  The first time I was glutened I was devasted...I remember it really well.   You will continue to learn and things will get easier and easier as you go along.  As diligent as you are, I have no doubt that you will beat that record quite soon. ?

I hope you get more responses as well...I find this really interesting!

    Thank you Ranchers Wife.  Since I'm asymptomatic, I would not know if I had gluten. I cannot imagine having to worry about getting sick from cross-contamination. 
    Hi Jenna1028, They test for DH by taking a small skin biopsy from clear skin next to a lesion.  If you have DH, you have celiac disease.  But, you need to be eating a gluten diet for 12 weeks (gluten challenge) before getting the skin bi...
    To the OP, once in a while this stuff happens.  Please feel free to start a new topic if that would make it easier.  I am afraid this is just part of forums on the internet. I hope this didn’t chase you off.
