Anxiety, Stress, And Ultra Sensitivity

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!!!

I'd really appreciate your support on this one, because I'm confused. Big time.

Sometimes, I get major mood swings...I know there's a thread on it somewhere, but I don't remember where it is or if anyone posted a message similar to this one.

It seems as if celiac disease has "thinned my skin" (opposed to the saying, "having thick skin.") I have been worrying about or forgetting things a lot lately. I keep having fears that everyone thinks I'm a different person, when I know that's not the case. I keep missing cross country practices because I keep forgetting the times for practice. I swear someone told me when had to run at 7:00--why were my teammates running at 4:00, then?

Oh, Lord. Am I getting cross contamination?

I love you all. It's comforting to know I'm not alone.

Does caffeine increase stress/anxiety in Celiacs? I had coffee shortly before dinner, and after that my heart began pounding, thus starting my anxiety. Am I imagining things? :(

I don't think the caffeine helps with stress........okay, that's putting it mildly.....caffeine is bad for stress or anxiety......you might want to stay away from that a bit....or at least limit it............about the other stuff.......I don't know what's with forgetting or imagining things. Someone here...I think it was Jessica (angel_jd1) made a thread awhile ago about being forgetful.....I didn't really read it, so I don't know if it had....sort of imagining things in it, but if you found that one, it might help with forgetfulness..................

celiac3270,

I guess I'll try to limit my caffeine intake...but there have been incidents (two) without caffeine that I've been extremely worried about. Today, the episode was identical to the ones I had before my diagnosis...

I don't know.

Thanks for replying,

Jill,

I'm almost 29 (I know it's hard to tell from my pic :lol: ) and if I don't get enough sleep, I cry like a baby... I have these super-sensitive moments that just can't be explained (it's not hormonal either). Usually Eric (my fiance) sends me to bed to get some rest when that happens. If I can say anything, it's directly related to the amount of sleep I get, because I seem to need a ton. I will set my alarm clock and a few seconds later have to check to make sure I did it right.. Hahahahaha! What I'm saying is you're not alone... I forget appointment times too. I really wish I could offer you advice, but if anything it's just best to know what your limits are and say "no" when you can't do what other's want from you. I think it's just that our bodies need a little more grace at times... they work pretty hard.

I had to fight with my doctor and insurance company to get me an appointment with a dietian. I had to wait 2 weeks for the appointment. That day I forgot all about it. I called crying, I could not believe I missed the one appointment I though I might finally get some help. She was nice and forgiving and rescheduled it for me.

oh, and I have never been able to tolerate too much caffeine. Makes me VERY jittery and nervous. I wonder if our bodies are still in a state of shock or on the defensive. Working hard to heal takes alot of energy, just like when you get the flu and your body is working so hard to fight the infection.
