I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 3 1/2 years ago. Being Gluten-free has been an adventure. Really I feel so much better, I never had any idea how sick I was. Our house is competely gluten-free and I have a very supportive husband. I'm not dairy free, that would be another challange, but I know many who have done it. Even in the last three years I have seen many changes and there are a lot more options. You will never really see the benefit if you don't just go cold turkey. You may have a period where you feel worse, but give your body a chance to adjust. I had headaches, they called it wheat withdrawl. Jules Gluten-Free has recipe books that are gluten-free and have dairy free options. Really you do get used to it and it becomes a way of life. The only time it gets to me is in social gatherings, especially the holidays. The other thing is the sticker shock of the cost of GF items. Hope this information helps. - Sharon
