Hi Steve.

I agree this is best site. All the help and support I've received from everyone. Going gluten-free is very stressful, but here we can find a refuge, and a support not found anywhere else.

Glad you are here.

I completely agree. We are so lucky to have this resource. I have learned nearly everything that I know about celiac disease here! Everyone has been so great. I know that we would not be in the the same place in our gluten free life without the help of you wonderful people. Through this forum I have learned about diagnosis, cross contamination, cooking, the diet and more. When my son was first diagnosed I thought we would be eating rice cakes and grilled chicken breasts, but you all have shown me that great food does not end with diagnosis and for us it was only the beginning of a healthy life for my son.

Thank you everyone. :)
