So forewarnin, if ye cant stand ramblin, ye might now wanna read this.

Anyway, I just wanna say, I love the new me. I have so much more energy and strength. I am finally able to get back down to my normal weight again. Exercise is fun again. I dont lose my breath walking up one flight of stairs no more. My GI problems are essentially GONE! My anxiety is gettin back to a manageable level. I dont get sick all the time anymore. I have energy to actually do housework. Cookin is fun again. And truth be told, food has NEVER tasted so good to me. I ate an apple and a larabar and some soymilk last night, and I could not help but moan how good it felt to be eatin real food again. I love my bed still, but in the mornin I can bounce right out. I have normal sleep habits again. Oh, and that sensitivity to anythin that touches my skin? As long as I use gluten free products, its GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so happy I discovered this intolerance. I actually feel human again. I feel like me again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
