Hi all!
I was diagnosed with "gluten sensitivities" four years ago by a homeopathic doctor. Things didn't work out well with him; I was just told to avoid bread. I felt better when I didn't eat wheat, so I slowly started avoiding it altogether. It was a frustrating, as I didn't know what gluten even was and felt really alone about the situation. At least I got a diagnosis out of him, as I had been feeling sick since before high school.
Since then I've read a few books, scoured the internet, and learned a ton of things! I feel so much healthier today being completely gluten free. I cook my own meals, buy my own groceries, and only eat my own food. I've started school again, and am now halfway through my college program. I can focus and think straight, and my grades are excellent. It's hard at times, as I've become overly sensitive to the smallest amount of cross-contamination, and some people in my life just don't understand that. But overall I feel great, and I'm happy.
There are definitely more packaged gluten-free items on the shelves than when I first started the diet, and most of those are fattening and yummy. I've joined Spark to count calories and keep track of my food progress. I probably won't be posting too much here, as school keeps me busy, but I just wanted to say hi anyway!
