I was diagnosed and went gluten free 21 months ago today, and I realized I have turned some kind of corner. So I thought I would write this for the people who ask

Thank you for this wonderful post. I am not known for being overly emotional, but this brought me to tears. What a great outlook you have, and it is so nice to think about focusing on the true pleasures in life. I am only 7 months into this crazy gluten free journey, and while I feel a million times better, I still have some complaints and hope that they will continue to improve. I hope to be able to write a note like yours in another year. Thank you.

Thank you for this.

I'm only 8+ months into this lifestyle and still have so much wrong with me physically and so much more to learn....even though I already feel positive and hopeful your post increases the level of my hope for eventual recovery.

And I'm truly happy for you!! :)

What an inspiring post. It has been a rough couple of days for me because I got glutened. I have been doing this for almost 3 months and I feel a lot better, but I still have a ways to go. And dealing with the emotional side of this is just as hard if not harder than living with the physical side. I love to come to this site when I feel people don't understand because I know that there are people here who do. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I think I'll print it out for a friend of mine who has been gluten-free for 2 months and is progressing slowly.

So, thanks for your post today. You touched many people I am sure many of whom didn't leave a comment.

Thank you so much for this post! I have been trying to eat gluten free for about 6 months. This part touched me especially:

So know that it will be hard and that you will experience accidents, frustrations, tears in the supermarket, anger, denial, grief, acceptance, depression, obsession, feeling overwhelmed and there are even times when you might think about giving up in some way. But you will get better. And there is light and hope and a better life at the end to look forward to.

I get SO frustrated, often to the point of tears at times, when I'm glutened. And for a long time I was in denial that I was as sensitive as I am to gluten, cc, etc. I've only been able to go a couple weeks at a time without being sick, but it is getting better, and I just need to stick to this. And you are right, this is leading me to some healthier eating - I'm getting better about having fruits and vegetables regularly. Fortunately, or unfortunately :D , one of my favorite indulgences - plain potato chips - are generally gluten free, so I tell myself it's not all bad! But you've given me additional hope. Thank you!

Hope is the operative word here. Thank you for that! I am 9 months gluten free and, while I am much better, I am not back yet. And, it is frustrating. Sometimes I feel like just eating a twinkie and forget about all this nonsence, but then I think about the consequences. Yikes! Your message spurs me on. There will be a day when your words will be my words. Thank you!

Thank you so much for an awesome post! My 9 year old daughter has been gluten free for 5 weeks and still is experiencing stomach aches and has been asking when they will go away. She has been going through a lot of emotions. I read to her your post so hopefully that has helped her. Thank you!
