Hi,

i wrote this this to your mum I think a couple of months ago,

Have you tried completely removing dairy from your diet? I know the last thing you want to hear is that you may have to give up yet more food, but it may be holding you back and causing at least some of the anxiety you are suffering? 

Hopefully others will have some advice also. Sending you best wishes from here in  the north west

Hi! I am 18 now and was diagnosed with celiac four years ago now. Celiac is very hard to deal with especially when you're first diagnosed with it, but know it gets easier! I also had a hard time dealing with anxiety and I know it's not easy at all. First step is to contact all your teachers and possibly your counselor to make sure they can help you stay on top of all your work. It will feel very  hard to catch up once you are able to come back but you can do it! Most teachers will work out a plan with you so that you can get the help you need and not fall behind, there is a plan where you can continue doing work outside of school (I can't remember the name of it but someone at your school should), don't be afraid to see tutors, do a home tutoring program or go to a summer school program if you need to! And honestly as bad as it sounds, it is okay to have to take a grade again if that ends up what needs to be done. Next, it's great that you're seeing a psychologist, but if you continue seeing them and you feel it is making you feel worse (when I went to one I ended up feeling way worse and like I should be feeling worse than I was and stuff) find a new one or take a break all together. Thirdly anxiety does not affect everyone the same but for me I have to find ways to distract myself and get back to normal patterns. It is so hard to go back to school and make yourself do things you would normally do but it is soooooo important. Doing things like being around people and moving around can help boost endorphins so for me that really helps. Even just calling to talk to a friend or something can help lead to a turn around. Taking time to try and "meditate" can help. Doing things like finding music that relaxes you, praying or using yoga breaths can you calm yourself. Some people even find things like reading, singing, dancing, painting or other forms of art can help. Even simply taking time to do thing you find enjoyable can really help. Try writing in a journal to see if you can find what triggers your anxiety and focus on learning how to cope with it, for me I got sick almost every Sunday and missed school on Monday and could not figure out why until I was able to track I was thinking about school the next day and getting sick at the same time with the same symptoms. Once I knew that I could learn to work around it. Always remember it's okay to have anxiety it's not a willpower to get over it, it's more a coping mechanism to work with and around it. Another thing that works for some people is essential oils. Try buying a few like lavender, rose or frankincense - they are surprisingly easy to find, most whole foods stores sell them. They can be dabbed on areas like the neck and back and put on your hands where you form a small circular cup with the other and take deep breaths of it or a diffuser can be bought, some can even be put into water or tea. Looking up ways to battle anxiety can be helpful there are all sorts of ideas out there and you can find what works for you. Remember you can do this! You can get through this! There are tons of people who love and support you and want you to get better! Don't push yourself too hard but keep trying, and keep trying your best. Even if your best feels like the worst you will get through this and you can do this. I hope this helped you some!

Many times with celiac disease the anxiety is intensified by nutrient deficiencies in things that effect our nerves, brain and mental well being. Common ones are the full B-vitamin spectrum, vitamin D and magnesium.  Look for stuff like Natural Vitality Magnesium Calm, start with small doses 1/4tsp and work it up over a few weeks to the full dose. Liquid Heath makes a sublingual vitamin D and 2 mixes i SWEAR by, Stress & Energy and Neurological Support I take 1tbsp each 3 times a day.....never giving those up lol.

Hi Janwill. I am sorry for your loss. You are lucky to have discovered that you cannot eat wheat now. Better than suffering for years with misdiagnoses and the damage the wrong treatment can cause. Once you get over mourning your loss you will find life is better. For starters you will likely avoid diabetes and obesity. That is good, yes? Wheat consumption causes all sorts of metabolic deficiencies with their individual complications. For your anxiety: I have been sad or depressed for ever until I started D. I and several people I know got great results from vitamin D3 at 10,000 iu a day. While the dietary recommendation is a minimum of 400 a day, that is the limit below which you are susceptible to rickets and bone loss. Less researched and understood is the role vitamin D plays in immunology and mood. The acceptable blood level for D3 is from 30 to 120. Some researchers estimate that 80% of the US population is low, but doctors are taught not to treat it until below 30 for some reason. It takes a while to get your bucket of D filled. You fill up D by eating organ meats and getting sunlight. Organ meat creeps me out, and sunshine, well, skin cancer. Besides I prefer to stay in. It took me a year at 10,000 a day to get to the point where I can stop taking it everyday, A friend, seeing his psychiatrist after a few months on 10,000 iu, had his Seriquil reduced. After taking 10k a day for a year his blood work came in at 70. I was on Buspirone for anxiety which worked well for me but no longer need it. I am now off it. They call it the sunshine medicine because we get it mostly from sunshine, but our lives now are avoiding sun. "In fact, 20% of our tests revealed 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels below 30 ng/mL, a number that even conventional doctors recognize as insufficient. When you realize that almost all people we tested were taking at least some supplemental vitamin D, you can understand the magnitude of the epidemic of vitamin D deficiency that exists in the general population."http://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2012/ss/vitamin-d-blood-levels/page-01.

As far as overdosing on D, it does not seem likely. One research study gave a single dose of 125,000 iu to a group of  kidney transplant patients and tracked their recovery over a year. There was no difference with the control group in terms of rejection.

You may also want to look into supplementing Iodine for healing and energy (why are so many celiacs taking Thyroid hormones?),one sheet of sushi seaweed a day is good and don't ignore the fact that you may be iron deficiency anemic.  I was pleasantly surprised how fast and well Geritol worked.
