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!
