  1. Is This Anyone Else?

    Wow, guys, these posts make me choke up in tears. I too feel my last 20 years or so have been lost. I am so thankful I have finally found something that works (which is to give up gluten). I messed up royally in college, stayed at a job I hated, all because I had no energy or joy for life. I turned to alcohol for some bit of solace. I ate my "nutritious" breakfast every morning, which consisted of a sandwich of whole-grain bread and soy burger, unintentionally poisoning myself for the first meal of the day... I now feel so much better and rested during the day. I have only been gluten-free for three days, but I want to shout from the rooftops how much better I feel. Although I regret many, many decisions I have made while in the "fog" I am at least glad I feel better now and can have a better future.
  2. Hi, everyone! I am new here. I have been a different person mentally and physically I believe simply because I consumed gluten. Whole grains are supposed to be good for you, right? What a scam. I have had digestive issues for as long as I can remember. I am 32 years old. I have always been bloated, grouchy, extremely fatigued all day long, unable to function in social situations, unable to make new friendships, irritable, and the list goes on. I don't know why I didn't think to cut out gluten before. My mom was tested recently for food sensitivities and was sensitive to gluten. I decided to stop eating it three days ago and feel better than I have my entire life! I am elated and have new hope for myself and my future. I cannot express how grateful I am to finally have an answer. I have been diagnosed with depression, bipolar, anxiety, delayed phase sleep disorder, and was given medications for these illnesses. All the pills did was drive me crazy (crazier than I already felt). I wish I had known that my behavioral and physical issues were related to consumption of gluten. I really messed up my life in a lot of ways due to feeling bad all the time. So I felt depressed and continued scarfing bread and pasta. The question is, which came first, the depression or the gluten intolerance...
