#670679 Please Help My Sister By Sharing Your Story

She sounds alot like me, especially when I was younger. Im now in my early 20's, and just found out I have celiacs. I want to possibly help someone else out there that may be going through what I did. When I was 16 and younger, I cycled between severe depression and rage. I would scream, punch holes in things, I even ripped a door off a hinge. I was such a thin thing I have no idea how I did that. I was always sick with pnemonia, bronchitis, fevers, and severe stomach pains. What I did eat was $1 frozen burritos, pasta, plain ground beef, cheerios or bagels with cream cheese. I would stay in my room and think about what was going on in my head and why. It was like I was my own psychologist, I knew it wasnt normal so I tried to wrap my brain around it in a rational way.

After I was 16 I was able to take my health into my hands and went vegetarian and ate mostly organic. I improved but I was still eating wheat. My stomach was always bloated like I was pregnant even though Ive always been underweight. I've had bad acne since I was 16. I cut down on gluten for the past 6 months, but two weeks ago I found out I had celiacs and have cut gluten out of everything down to my chapstick and beauty products. Im feeling so much better, my hair, skin, and nails are improving. I actually had 3 hallucinations out of the corner of my eye the first week I cut gluten out. Then I kept at it and felt even better and they didnt happen again. I hope that my story might help her. She may just need someone to really reach out and get to her understant its out of love. It might take a while to adjust to the new food alternatives. Maybe do the diet with her? I dont know either of you personally, but perhaps she's rebelling? (I had blue hair and a long list of things I did lol). Just a thought...
