5th Anniversary gluten-free

Recommended Posts

I am celebrating my 5th Anniversary as a Gluten Free person!

I just wanted to say thanks... I don't frequent this board daily as I once did... but I do refer to it often, and recommend it to people I meet who are newly diagnosed. It is amazing to me how far the world has come in 5 years regarding knowledge of celiac, products available, etc.

I feel better now, more than ever, and want those who (or whose loved ones have been) newly diagnosed to know that the gluten-free life is incredible, and is worth every minute of the diffculty... for the health and happiness that is the result.

Thank you.

Ruth

Happy Anniversary! I agree - this board is priceless!

Congratulations!

I was just thinking the other day how much better I am feeling these days... physically really better than I remember for a long time, now at 2 years and 1 month gluten free... how much more enthusiasm and motivation and hope and stuff I feel, as well as how quiet and smooth, painfree, my gut is.

I don't get on this board that much anymore either...but read it daily when I was first going gluten free...and this board is what got me through the tough times and confusion...the roller coaster my body went on before and even for a long time after going gluten free.

So, congrats, again, Ruth! And to any newbies... hang in there... sometimes things change very slowly, over time... it is certainly well worth the efforts and hassles, in the long run!
