Topics I've Started

Seasonal Depression (sad)

13 December 2009 - 02:49 PM

If any of you think you have SAD, a common ailment that affects people who do no get outside and who are bummed in the winter.......last winter was awful for me and no doctor put their finger on it. This winter I suggested to my doctor that I might have this, he agreed and put me on a much larger dose of Vitamin D, Melatonin for sleep and an anti-depressant. I was having so many "nerve" headaches (used to have migraines, but don't anymore) and "episodes" where I was so very sick that I just had to go to the bed and sleep it away, kind of like I was in a stupor. In the beginning I could attach each "episode" to a gluten accident, but not the three in one week that I had Thanksgiving week. After I saw the doctor, and went on the three things he suggested, I feel so, so much better and even am a nicer person. Christmas is a very hard time for me and then the cold months of January and February are tough too. I had just a crappy winter last year and am looking at a much better one this year. Happy Holidays.

Recipes Using Betty Crocker Cake Mixes

21 November 2009 - 08:58 AM

Just google gluten free carrot cake recipe and it will take you to lots of places, but I just chose the Betty Crocker site and there are what looks to be lots of really good ways to use their mixes. I am going to try some of them. Betty Crocker has really come through for us, and will line their pockets with gold due to the fact that their mixes are so expensive. We are worth it, though!!!!!


Floating Poopies

Did I hear that floating poopies are a sign of celiac, or gluten sensitivity?

Gluten Give You Neurological Symptons?

19 October 2009 - 01:04 AM

As I am gluten intolerant/not celiac, I have a different reaction to major gluten. I feel sick to my stomach, light-headed, dizzy, sweaty, tired and like I am in a stupor and I just have to go to bed until it passes. This used to happen to me sometimes before I went gluten-free..........like a major sub or lots of pizza, very bready things. It happened to me when I ate Quaker oatmeal last summer and the I, foolishly, ate some pumpkin bread last week. I won't be doing that anymore. I also think that when I get gluten it bothers my fibromyalgia.


Tried Regular Oatmeal Twice

20 May 2009 - 06:20 AM

Last Thursday and this Tuesday, I tried regular oatmeal and it tasted so good with a little brown sugar and milk. However, I was so sick on Saturday night and last night which for me is extreme nausea, light headedness, and exaustion so bad that I could not stand up, I had to go to bed. I used to have these incidents before going gluten-free five years ago and have not had one since going gluten-free. Do you think eating oatmeal could have caused this? On Saturday I thought it was just overdoing it last week, but now that it happened again yesterday, I suspect the oatmeal. FOR SURE, I won't be eating it again and if it never happens again, I will know oatmeal and I do not get along. Do you think it could have been from Thursday to Saturday for the first batch to have caught up with me?
