Kim - you may want to read GF Living for Dummies as soon as you can. It'll better help you decide your course of action (or inaction). There are over 250 symptoms with celiac ... if YOU have this? Think of all that research right there at your fingertips for those docs! We need you - lol. :) (And where do I sign up to do your job?)
Ferret - I just love the way you write. What a gift with words. They're like fluffy clouds puffing at me.
P.S. Re: librarian/books...paper?
Get this connection: I read in a book while at the health food store (I think one by Kathleen Desmaisons .. the author of Potatoes, Not Prozac), that people who are carb addicts like paper (don't know why) ... and I am a stationery freak and love(d) scrapbooking/rubber stamping/card making. I hoard books and paper.
In fact, I remember dumpster diving when I was 6 or 7 and finding a giftbox with a handle on it stuffed with old Christmas cards. I'd gone to heaven. It became my 'teacher' briefcase. I'd always wanted to be a teacher: I'd get to handle and correct more papers, AND write on the chalkboard.
(This was NOT my sister, btw, who did become a teacher!)
Okay, now I feel really weird. *slinks back into corner ...with books*
Maybe it's a weird form of "information pica" - lol.

KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB!
