In Topic: Skin Tags ... From Celiac?

16 May 2015 - 05:02 PM

I have noticed more skin tags since my diagnosis of Celiac Disease and going gluten free.  A doctor has asked me if anyone in my family is diabetic, because "diabetics have skin tags and dark patches"..... my mother had the same --dark patches and skin tags but NO diabetes in the family.  I find the mention of insulin resistance and skin tags very interesting.  In addition I have started to crave sugar.... not sure what that means.....

In Topic: More, Worse Symptoms,.... Depression Taking Hold.

16 May 2015 - 04:42 PM

I do not take meds for depression and I do not want to, or need to.  I have these downward spirals periodically, but not regularly enough to call for meds.  I know the reasons for the downward spiral, and there is not a whole lot I can do about it, except to let it come and this too shall pass.

I am all alone in the world.  No one cares about me.  My worst problem lately is the amount of travel for work and the huge difficulty of having a pleasing meal, that is warm food, and having that meal also be gluten free.  At home I have no problem, out on the road,... I am tired of eating flavorless crap,... it is very difficult to bring anything that requires refrigeration, because we check out of hotels and move every day,... there is no way to keep things cold enough all day long in a hot car.  I am not made of money.  Small towns don't have gluten free options.  I am over 50 and there are NO job options available to me --- no one wants to hire an old lady who they think will leave in a few years.  (I am going nowhere---I am flat broke, not a nickel to my name, where would I be going?)  

In a nutshell it is a fact that: life is a bitch and then you die. 

In Topic: Increased Hair Growth

15 May 2015 - 06:49 PM

in addition to celiac disease I am now in menopause, so everything is totally out of whack.  currently my hair growth is not that great,.... it's even less on legs and under arms.  The hair on my head had been getting healthier - stronger, but due to a current relapse of symptoms it has become weak and unhealthy again as well.
