Deb, do you remember a man from Florida, who started posting here about 3 or 4 yrs ago and he posted in hours---"I have been gluten free for xx amount of hours and this ......... has happened". Between my hysterectomy and celiac, my memory is shot, and I can't remember what his name was in the forum--his posts were wonderful. He didn't drive, he rode a bike--he was in an accident with his bike and broke a bone, which would not heal--that's when he found out he had celiac disease. His name is Tim, I have his phone #, but never can catch him at home--you know, he is working when I am sleeping and I am working when he is sleeping. I gave him my private email addy and phone # and helped him through so many glutenings that he started calling me his celiac angel.

With busy lives, you lose touch, sad but true of us all. I will have to try and call him this weekend and maybe around midnight tonight, when it seems my mind does it's best thinking, then I will remember his name in this forum!!!!!

Merry Christmas everyone and the Happiest of New Years!!!!!

I am not able to participate very much because I got healthy (thanks to this forum) and was able to start a new life. I was days away from getting fired from my previous job and found a new one that pays a six figure salary. Of course that means I work 60-70 hours a week but I am healthy enough and grateful enough for a second chance to do that. 2008 looks to be as busy as 2007 was but that is a good thing considering how bad things were at one time. Overall things are good and I have no reason to complain.

I still check in from time to time but that's all I have time for.

Aww, thanks Deb - I definitely fall under the category of those who disappeared for a while... it's definitely a sign that I've adjusted to the diet but I have learned so much from you guys and just wanted to say thanks to everyone that helped me get to where i am with this diet. Maybe when things quiet down a little for me i'll be able to post more regularly again. In the meantime...

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE! :)
