Ok so here goes. Im not even sure if I should be posting since I am feeling rather sad due to contamination

I have several questions and have also posted to other boards to break this down

I went gluten free last spring (its January now).

the brain fog/depression cleared completely.

I feel smart, alive and I have so much energy I had to start running (anywhere from 5-8k) to let it out. Due to the running/exercise I dont have back problems anymore, I have strenghthened my core. I have lost 35lbs through not substituting (eliminating most carbs) and running, taking care of myself

I started noticing things since I can think clearly now. I was unhappy in my marriage so I have separated.

I feel like I know what I want in life now

I joke around and call this my midlife crisis (i am 29 but hey what if I only live to be 60? it happens alot, car accidents, cancer what not)

so Im 29, did not have the luxury of a childhood so now I feel this urgent need to do all that stuff like go to the club (tried the club, didnt like it. Not doing that agian),

find a few guys, get a small cute tattoo,

I have webbed toes so I had them pierced. I always wanted to do that. Its pretty cute actually

(this cant all be glutens fault right?)

I feel like im gonna explode if I dont have fun. I feel robbed because I never had the opertunity to do these things I was supposed to do as a teenager (dont get me wrong I am being responsible about it :)

I just worry because I look at miley cyrus and I see that she was a good kid until she went gluten free? you can attribute her insanity to many things, being a celeb, teen crazies, whatever but I just feel like I see a pattern and it worries me

Surely I cannot blame gluten for all that has happened right?

I have no desire to be married but I know that if I never switched diets id still be there, oblivious to my need for attention/affection, thinking this is the happiest ill ever be.

Is this completely off? am I overthinking this? Am I going off the deep end? this is so completely oposite of pre-gluten me!

maybe it will tapper off after a few months? (its been ~9 months since I ditched gluten)

The truth is I am completely happy (like for real) even through the process of being (recently) separated. Tottaly happy! until I get contaminated.....I cant even shower today, dishes are piling up, Ugh! I feel like I cant trust my thoughts when this happens. I feel like I shouldnt talk to anyone because I will scared ppl away from me (as of now I do not have true Friends that would understand my condition)

like what?

I hesitate to post, because I'm not sure if this meets the " helpful" criteria. :)

Depression/ anxiety are often part of Celiac disease. Eliminating gluten can make if go away for some people.

Also, with a healed gut, you are able to absorb the nutrients in your food. Maybe you were a bit anemic or b12 deficient before and now you aren't. That can lead to a big energy surge.

I'm wondering at what age you got married, or why you are saying you never got a childhood. Not that it's any of my business. At any rate, it is "normal" for people to have a point at which something triggers a breaking point for them and they choose to experience everything they feel they missed. It has absolutely nothing to do with gluten.

You probably just snapped finally. It happens. I know, it happened to me, which is why I can say with surety that it has nothing to do with gluten. I was still undiagnosed back then, but it is obvious to me now that my symptoms began when I was very small. You did what you were supposed to, what was expected of you, the right thing, and finally one day it's like you wake up and realize that the last whatever space of time has been a complete and utter lie, it isn't you, and you want to fix it. You can't undo it, and maybe you aren't entirely sure who you are because you've never been allowed to completely be you, but you can find out by changing things. Then you suddenly realize you can have back the part of your adult youth that you never had. So you do.

 

It's that whole thing teenagers go through in the process of discovering who they are, etc. We're just late bloomers, which also has the perk of wine. ;)

Sounds like you are discovering the world.  I did enough of that and I found it empty.  Trying thing after thing and on to the next thing, because nothing truly satisfies.   I fear you may be making choices outside of your good sense, or outside of what you have always believed.  In my mind you need to be leery of doing all your heart tells you.    I hope you find true long lasting happiness!

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thank you, Arlene, for making tea come out my nose!  I should have known not to read your post while drinking......
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      sella.........in 11 years gluten free, I have never been glutened by natural flavorings. I know some of the older literature on Celiac says it may contain gluten but they rarely do.  For more info, I have put in a link that briefly explains how it works with labeling for those.  The link is dated 2013 but I have yet to read any updates that list any pertinent changes to this.  It will take a few years or longer for a person with Celiac to really learn how to read a label to the point where they feel comfortable with eating that food but I guarantee you'll be a food expert! http://www.glutenfreeliving.com/gluten-free-foods/gluten-free-nutrition/gluten-questions-and-answers/natural-flavorings/ As to your other question, yes, Celiac most certainly causes balance and neuro issues.  I suffered from extreme vertigo for years, which disappeared after being on the gluten-free diet for a while.  I had no idea it was connected to celiac disease but it completely disappeared on the diet.  I also never had anxiety issues but now, on the rare occasion I sustain a hit, the anxiety is bad.  It disappears after about a week.  This is well know to Celiac's but many doctors still don't get all the symptoms we suffer from, that are related to gluten ingestion.  Frustrating!
    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      SugarCube, I saw your other posting today.  I can not believe that I missed your original posting!  Maybe I was doing something super fun that week (oh, my parents were visiting!).   Your celiac blood panel was positive and you had intestinal damage that was caused by both celiac disease and Giardia?  After treating the Giardia, your CD resolved or went into remission?  Are you consuming a diet containing gluten still?  Have you had a follow-up biopsy?   I read your link to the study, but that feature just one patient (a child).  Have you found any other larger studies?  Inquiring minds want to know!       
    • Week late aftershock!?
      Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder like lupus, MS or R.  Arthritis except the trigger for a flare-up is known -- gluten.  Unfortunately, no one knows what causes lupus or MS to flare-up (lots of theories, but no definitive answers).  For some celiacs, a flare-up is just a day or so.  For others a week or months!  I can vouch for months!  My antibodies were sky high after a glutening last summer six weeks after the occurrence.  I also became lactose intolerant for three months!  I was so bummed!   Plus, my symtoms were so different from when I was diagnosed.   I am sorry that you were glutened.  I hope you feel better soon.   Oh, I tend to alter my gluten-free diet to include soft easy-to-digest foods after a glutening.  Maybe this will help you.   
    • Emergen-c All Flavors gluten-free
      I hope this information is still accurate because according to their website they do not actually test the end product. http://www.emergenc.com/misc/faq Are your products free of Gluten? We do not use Gluten during the manufacturing process. However, we are unable to confirm its presence or absence as the end product is not tested for gluten

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
