I'd stop the oats for now and see if your symptoms improve.

Okay, so about 3 weeks ago me and my fiance of 7 years broke up. We are still living together (financial reasons). I have recently decided to try eating oatmeal (not the instant premix- normal oats "100% oats"). I seem to be doing fine in terms of gut but I am also feeling rather depressed and like I want to cry a lot. Is it an effect of possible CC or just me feeling crappy about being single again. I know you are not me and I'm really the only one who can answer it but maybe you guys can throw some opinions my way that can help me think it through further.
Depression and anxiety are what I feel when gluten CC hits. Weepy, sad to the bone, feel like I wanna cry if someone speaks to me. Then the rest of the reaction hits, but the depression, anxiety and sadness are overwhelming. Thankfully it goes when the gluten goes. I hope you drop the oatmeal for now. You have enough going on. I'm sorry about your break-up. My ex divorced me over this illness and we were together 7 years too. It definitely can be the feelings of loss of your relationship but you wanna be sure you don't add gluten to the grieving process. Hope you feel better soon.

What brand of oatmeal are you using? I have to use certified gluten free oatmeal, like Red Mill. I can't eat any other oatmeal but that or I will get sick cause of the CC.
However when I'm extremely stressed out I'll get sick like I've been glutened. Last time it happened, my good friend died and I took it very hard and I was moving away by myself to a brand new city to start college, and I was sick for about a month, even though I know I wasn't eating anything with wheat/gluten. After I came to terms with it and started to move on, I started to physically feel better as well.
I often wonder if depression/stress have the same effect on my gut that wheat/gluten has.
