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. Charles Stanley
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!
