I've come across a lot of info lately on this diet (although I hate the term "diet") and have read hundreds of success stories. I know it's a radical thought to give up grains, lactose, and most sugar but I'm at the point with my disease ( 15 years and counting) that if it will give me a somewhat normal tummy, I am going to try my damndest! I'm lucky in that I don't really like pasta, rice, alcohol, and ice cream much so I don't think it will be that hard for me to stick to. I actually ran into someone at the market today while I was looking for the yogurt starter, who tried the diet a year ago and has had no symptoms since. It was totally random but a great sign I believe. If anyone is interested on how it is going, I'll be trying to write a daily journal entries on my profile to list my food consumption and how it is going. I'm really upset at the many doctors I've seen who have never mentioned this before. Sure it may not work but if so many people have had success with it then why not at least mention that. But no, they would rather prescibe me medicine that lowers my immune system, causes bone degeneration, and could possibly cause cancer. It's a messed up system.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
