Anger Anyone?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've never been an angry person, until the last few weeks. I went gluten-free about two months ago and it's been a total roller coaster. I've felt pretty good, and then even sicker than before. Lately my temper has been absolutely boiling. Does anyone have this reaction if their consuming hidden gluten? Or could it be an adjustment to being gluten-free? It's totally irrational, too. Nothing in particular sparks it.

Thanks... :angry:

I did a posting on anger. You might find it informative because my husband has the exact same problem that you do. It seems as though it is very common. If you look under my topics....it is called ANGER.

Celiac/Gluten Sensitivity sure seems to be a life long roller coaster. However, like a lot of posters have said, hopefully the highs will outweigh the lows. Most people I know think it's the end of the world when they go gluten free. Good advice is to think of it as the beginning of a great new world--of greater health. More good advice is to think of all the great things you can have instead of what you can't have.

A couple of times my husband would say "have some gluten" you'll feel better. How little he knows about celiac. You're allowed to have an attitude every once in a while. It may be the body adjusting. It may be hidden gluten. I don't really know.

Have you been limiting your dining out meals? That can go two ways. First, you may need a break from cooking and need a change of food. So find a good, trustworthy restaurant. Or, if you've been dining out frequently thinking you've been gluten free, you may be getting it inadvertently. Who knows. But, looking back I can definitely say I was more rollercoaster like emotionwise at the beginning of this thing.

What about your favorite foods? If you loved cakes and cookies, but haven't really had anything since you went gluten-free, go get some good mixes or look up recipes and get baking.

I get angry when I have gluten. I also get really frustrated, drop stuff, knock into stuff, get weepy, etc. It is a rollercoaster.

However, knock on wood, I haven't had any gluten accidents in quite a while and am finally feeling pretty good about it. I think it's been at least two months. It does get better!

Hey Puckster,

I've been dealing with similar emotions and I've been gluten free for 2 months as well. For me, I feel like I've lost a part of myself through this process and think I become angry knowing I can't eat all the foods I used to eat. I definitely become moody when I accidently eat gluten, but I think my anger stems more from knowing I can't eat something I want. Is that what you mean?

Thanks, Rachel! The spinning question mark was making me queasy but I didn't have anything else at work to put up. Now I've been home spending a lot of time with my cat, I had to put him up there.

Hi Puckster:

I also have those episodes but I know it is not gluten induced. This time of year for me is absolutely hell. I have been a long sufferer of SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder - and this time of year I am sooooo short tempered and irritable. The really weird thing is that I seem to be at my worst the same time every day - around 5 p.m. - I can feel myself just slipping into anger and snapping at everybody. Thankfully, both me and my doctor are pro-active about this time of year and increase my medication. Unfortunately, they have just recently changed me from Prozac (which I have been on for 10 years) to Effexor. My gastro specialist thinks that maybe Effexor may lessen my diarrhea somewhat. Well, so far, there has been absolutely no change in my diarrhea, but I find that I am a lot more sensitive emotionally and feel like I am just "existing", not really living. I hope the new medication will kick in better soon........

Sorry for the rambling - just wanted to put out another possibility for our anger...

I also get angry when I've been glutened. I call them my "I don't like people" days. My roommates (and even my dog) have learned to steer clear on those days, I make it pretty clear that I won't talk to them.

I've found something cool, though. I've been learning to play the guitar for about three weeks now, and it really calms me. Helps the gluten-depression, too. And it's something I can do where I feel productive even when brain is foggier than San Francisco.

Gluten and casein both make me feel like hell - depressed, irritable, really angry, hostile, over emotional, weepy... If any of you guys know for sure you've not been glutened but still feel that way, I would seriously suggest getting tested for casein intolerance ($99 from enterolab.com). The protein looks and acts just like gluten. If you're gluten intolerant there's an 80% chances you'll be casein intolerant too.

Me too! I wouldn't mind the digestive symptoms, really, it's the emotional ones that I dread.

OK, one more off-topic response:

Does your cat have a short tail like that also? :)

So we both have look-alike cats and a sensitivity to nightshades.... Separated at birth?

Stephanie

Stephanie, he looks just like my male cat.
