    Hi all, I've been coming on this board more and more, love playing the new games someone got going on here. But I haven't seen Pippi on here in a while. Have I just missed her somehow, is she OK?

    Thanks for the warm welcome home!

    Yeah, I was AWOL for quite awhile there.
    But it's so GREAT to be back!!! :D

    I was too sick to post (or do much of anything) for several weeks.
    Back in December, I nearly "bought the farm"!

    But now I'm healing! Actually healing & not merely managing symptoms (which weren't actually being managed at all, really).

    In December, in addition to my original illness, I was DX'ed with Celiac Disease.
    Since early January, I've been completely gluten-free, & I'm getting stronger & having less pain & the truly dangerous symptoms are going away.
    It will take time to heal completely, of course, but I'm well on my way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm doing LOTS of research on Celiac, & discovering that gluten hides under many false names, & is in everything from soup to lipstick!

    It feels SOOOOOOOOOOO great to be up & outta that wheelchair!!!!!!

    I'm still wobbly & using a walker, but as soon as I regain my strength & balance, I'll be walking w/o any assistance! YAY!!!!!!

    I feel like I'm coming outta some kinda nightmare, but I AM coming out of it!!!

    It's great to be "home" here on the boards!!!
