  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I noticed some replies are without the quotes. When I send a reply the post that I am responding to is always in a box. Can I reply wihtout the boxed in quote?
  3. Thanks everyone for the validation. 2 days now gluten free and I am actually feeling better already. I think I'll stick with the gluten free diet and get back to life. Does anybody know where I can go to find a list of prescription drugs to avoid in this situation, or are drugs even an issue when it comes to staying gluten free?
  4. I had some of the same porblems. Took Lexapro for a couple of days. Totally waked out of my mind. I quite it immediately. I'd call your physician though because you've been on it maybe long enough to have withdrawal symptoms. I wonder if Lexapro is a pharmaceutical that is bonded with gluten? I read that some drugs can bring on symptoms similar to that of gluten. Or, maybe it's just a coincidence! You will get back to normal once you stop taking the Lexapro in a day or so. It took me about two full days to feel "normal" again.
  5. What does steak, cheese, and/or tuna have to do with Celiac disease or gluten intolerance? I'm new to this forum and just recently finding out about Celiac and possibly tying it to my ailments. Are these foods related somehow?
  6. Hi Lauren, I live in Ohio. Wellsville. South of Youngstown and north of Steubenville. It appears you are in Columbus? I'm new to this group and I have not been diagnosed but I have little doubt. Would love to get recipes. Joe
  7. Hello, I just registered as a member. I'm battling, daily, problems with my cognitive processes. It's getting worst. I can't think straight; hate to have coversations because I have difficulty making eye contact, making any sense, and I just don't seem like I can pull myself together to express myself and to have fun and talk about things that normally move me. This is not me! I love sports, intelligent people, and I am passionate about my work. I am behind closed doors in my office and my staff think I am crazy or in a bad mood, and consequently they stay away. I am unproductive and need to get things done. For several years now, I've noticed when I put myself on a carb-free diet, which of course is gluten free by virtue of eliminating breads and cereals, I am ok. Each time I go on a carb or gluten free-diet and then go back to gluten my symtpoms seem to be more intense. This weekend I thought it would be ok to have some chocolate and candy with my daughter. I had a few other things that could contain gluten, such as coffee creamer, a couple of cookies (definitely has gluten) and I don't even want to go home because it is a chore to look my wife and kids in the eyes (that eye contact thing)! I've heard about Celiac disease and gluten causing problems, so I've decided to look into it. I do not have the intestinal problems, but, wiht out a doubt my negative cognitive process is related to the carbs and/or gluten that I consume. Is it common to have these neurological symptoms without the gastro troubles? I'm just hoping to get some of my thoughts validated. Irishjoe P.S. How do I use those cool Smilies?
