Hi Jen and welcome to this group. I am glad that you are feeling much better being gluten free. It certainly does make a difference. I have been gf since July of 2009 and feel so much better.
I can certainly relate to what you are saying if you ingest gluten accidentally and feel horrible for a few days. The longer that you are gf and you ingest gluten (at least this happens to me) It would take me about an hour before I was sick now it takes me minutes.
Keep us posted on how you are doing.

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.

Hello everyone, my name is Jen and I am relativly new to the GF scene. Been eating GF for about 6 months now and really noticing a difference. I found out I had a gluten intolerence when I had eaten Sourdough bread at Grandma's house and my throat got itchy and sticky and 2 doses of benadryl weren't helping. I didn't realize why I had been feeling so terrible the last 2 years until I started reading all the symptoms of GF intolerence, maybe even longer. I had most of the symptoms listed. I am pretty much symptom free now except I sure do know when I have accidentally been exposed to Gluten! Whew I feel it for a few days afterwards : ( Don't miss Gluten at all! Glad to be a part of your group.
