I Don't Want To Make Y'all Mad

It turns out my hormones were so screwy that it was giving me panic - not attacks, but panic syndrome.
I've lost 23 pounds. It was ME who searched the net and found that my symptoms equaled gluten intolerance.
Well, the hormones have helped except I'm still goofy.... well, my glasses broke so I was trying to super glue the frame back together but it was hard because I had to put my left hand on the frame and the right side on my knee to put the super glue in there .... so the glasses got stuck to my knee and you know how when you can't use your hands it makes your nose itch? So my nose started itching so I scratched my nose, but there was super glue on my finger, now there's my finger stuck on my nose and the glasses got stuck to my knee and Lord or Lord, I was a big ol' mess with all that but it all worked out.
I know you all said my doctor doesn't know what he's talking about, but I am better, only I can't take caffeine or sugar anymore.

I think so many of us here have been through so much where we had to hunt and fight to figure out what's wrong, most of us are just happy to hear that someone else has found the answer for their own health, no matter what that answer is. COngrats - I hope your doc had some good hormone therapy that works really well for you.

Glad you're feeling better and rid of those awful symptoms, and kudos to your doc who figured it out.

Hopefully you were smarter than I was when I superglued my glasses to my nose after I ran into a cupboard door. When the end of the day came I just ripped them off my face. Yowch!!!
