Hi and welcome to the team.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

emoticon newbie gf emoticon s. Nice to meet you both.

The transition to gf is doable ... one day at a time. No freaking out allowed. ;) Learn as you read online, and apply what works for you. It IS overwhelming at first. Esp when you're likely not feeling well. Keep a good thought about the future - it's brighter on the other side.

Thanks for the tip, Bailey!

JennJann - We've actually tried a few of the gluten-free products from the local discount health-food store. The gluten free chocolate chip cookies are some of my husband's favorite cookies, already, and I really enjoyed the gluten-free hamburger buns although he couldn't bring himself to try them the time I brought them home. So, at least I know there are good options out there. I'll just need to start replacing all our carbs. Good luck!

After struggling with many months of my husband's baffling symptoms (now, I realize it may have been more like years), I have taken a solid look at celiac disease (his aunt has it, and mentioned that some of his symptoms were similar to hers when diagnosed). So, here I am, trying to find out more, and some options for helping him to cope. Luckily, our health-food store offers some great gluten-free options that we already know and love, although it's going to be a hard change for a carb-a-holic like me. But, perhaps overall, it will help with a total lifestyle change and a healthier future for both of us.
