Is it normal to be almost depressed after diagnosis? How did everyone deal with it? Will my urge to stuff my face with all the processed alternatives go away here soon? My pants can't handle it much longer!

Oh gosh, I ate everything I could get my hands on. Just because I could! I'm much better now after a few months. At first though it was part of how I coped, which wasn't healthy but it kept me from going crazy. I found out I could eat something so I'd eat it. Not because I wanted it but just sort of to because I needed to feel like I could eat things. Now I am much more responsible six months in.

As for feeling depressed, can be due to gluten withdrawal. Give it a few months. It took me 4 months to get over withdrawal symptoms.

I also find that I am quite grumpy and tired. By the end of the day, I want to avoid all people... I would avoid me if I could.
Best wishes to you. I hope you are feeling a lot better soon.
