Hmm...what about me. I'm married, three kids, and went gluten-free two days after my 40th birthday (2009) while were on vacation. It was getting so sick from the whole wheat crackers and cheese we ate for lunch that pushed me over the edge. I went dairy free about three weeks later.
It wasn't until 2002 that I really began to notice significant issues with my health, but I'd had intermittent diarrhea since I was about 20 (always chalked it up to stress), and when I was 19 I suddenly (literally overnight) developed allergies and chronic rhinitis. Then chest pains (at 21) which continued for the next 19 years. "Stress" again. Lots of little things looking back over the years, but nothing ever connected together until just recently.
I'm feeling better than I have in years, haven't had a single 'heart attack' pain since going gluten-free, but I'm having ups and downs. The downs are becoming somewhat easier to deal with since the gluten and soy induced depression, anxiety, and panic attacks have decreased (unless I get glutened or soyed accidentally).
