In Topic: Does Gluten Affect Your Thinking ?

02 April 2013 - 07:04 AM

Apart from major problems from glutening like anxiety, depression, flying off the handle (general temperament probs), tearful - to name but a few!

I am none of these gluten free - a real happy bunny :) .

Have also noticed it affects my piano playing (for pleasure) and mental arithmatic.

It's as if it gets into your brain and then it can't function properly - sort of clogged up.

In Topic: My Thoughts On "types" Of Dh

02 April 2013 - 06:56 AM

A psychologist told me that the DH on my back and scalp was self harming (!!!!!! :o ).

Doc told me that I was spreading it by scratching it !!!!

This was some years ago and although I had no idea what it was myself - I did know that I WASN'T self harming.

Hi tennisman


I take Lamberts Vit D 1000iu per day available through Amazon (or quality health food store). I think it is a good one and I definitely feel better with taking it. 

Like you, I am in the UK and struggling to remember what sunshine looks like!


Additional thought - have you had your thyroid function checked. I would say that low thyroid = feeling low/depression.

Might be worth checking just in case.

Hope you feel better soon (and hope we get a beautiful summer).

Been there!

It's like getting bogged down in a swamp and like 'what the hell can I actually eat???'

All I can say is that it gets better and it gets much easier - I guess, with practice.

I am sure some people are brilliant from day 1 but I suspect for most, it's a big learning curve. Getting it wrong is part of learning and providing you keep at it - it will improve along with how you feel.

Hope you feel better soon :) .

The only time mine vanished (to my surprise) was when I had a course of strong antibiotics and steroids to treat a bad chest infection. It came straight back afterwards (this was over 20 years ago). 

It was somewhat helped by a long course of oxytetracycline antibiotics (sp?) prescribed for it by doc who said it was infected skin (?????????). Came straight back after and a second course had negligible effect. (Again, this is years ago)!
