Steve, I haven't been on the computer today, just found this thread, and I am pretty upset about what's happening to you. I am afraid that your mother did do it on purpose, to prove to you that you're wrong about the 200 ppm not being safe for you. However, since you say it has bad effects on her as well, she may not be rational anyway, and as somebody said, acting like she is stupid. Being your mother, she can't be stupid for real. But the gluten is making her that way.

It is a shame that in the UK the coeliac society and doctors will declare that all celiacs are safe consuming the 200ppm stuff.

Please just rest, drink lots of water and don't make any plans right now to do anything (other than calling your aunt, so she can let your mother know you are safe).

Once you're rational again, it might be best if you write your mother a letter to explain what happened. Let your girlfriend read it before you send it, to make sure it doesn't sound angry and hostile. Tell her why you will never feel safe in her house again, because you can't be sure she won't knowingly feed you things that you told her will make you ill. Make sure you also tell her that you love her, and will see her when in England, but on your terms. And that you won't be able to stay with her again.

Don't bother talking to your brother, he apparently isn't even trying to understand how you feel. I know what you mean about the books not being in alphabetical order really bothering you. My autistic tendencies are much stronger when glutened, and that one could happen to me as well (except with me, the books would have to be arranged by size and subject :rolleyes: ).

I really hope you'll be okay. Please keep us updated.

:blink::unsure: Why does gluten cause such anger? I relate totally and find I need to "hide" until the rage and symptoms pass. Is there a mediacal reason for the anger?

So sorry for your troubles. I whispered a little prayer for you and all of us...

Chatycady, for many of us gluten has a neurotoxic effect. The action of the body trying to protect itself from a toxin that is coursing through the bloodstream can create reactions in any system. In addition there are chemicals in the brain that can be thrown out of wack by gluten. I believe it has something to do with neuroreceptors and transmitters causing either a blocking action or the opposite excess electrical impulses. In some of us gluten can even cause seizue activity. I personally think gluten intolerance is behind a lot of the depressive disorders and it also has a strong link for many to autistic syndromes. If you do a search here on 'Neurological effects of gluten' you should be able to find some links to some medical journal articles.

I know it's probably around 4 a.m. in the UK and hopefully you are having a wonderful deep sleep and tomorrow will be a brand new day for you.....

Please post when you get the chance to let us know how you are doing......

When I was thinking about you today, I thought that the "neurological" glutening of the brain would probably affect you 10 times more than it would affect me. If our brains were musical instruments, I would be a fiddle and you woulld be a finely tuned Stratovarius! LOL! :lol: A brilliant mind like yours would probably be much more susceptible to toxic gluten than mine would! Considering when I get glutened, I change instantaniously from my normal self into "The Incredible Hulk" with an explosive temper, I can't imagine what it must feel like for you......

Thinking of you and sending hugs.

Karen

Steve,

I don't know you,but I can tell from the enormous response from these wonderful, caring forum members that you are a special man. Once again, I am absolutely amazed by the level of compassionate concern here! I ,too, hope you are finding sleep at this moment. I find that sleep will be your best friend until this glutening is over. If you are not sleeping, would you seek a druggist over there and ask for recommendations? Maybe you can find someone who will understand you have zero tolerance for gluten. I am sending you positive vibes across the big pond!!!

Steve,

Eventhough we have had our scraps, I am very upset that you are suffering so much. It's really not fair that you have had to go through a situation like this. Especially since you are the "careful one" when it comes to gluten. I think everyone has given you some of the best advice. Stay clam and wait for your girlfriend to come to your rescue. I hope that you are feeling much better today. Hopefully, this will be over soon. Take care off yourself.

Vicki :)

Im so sorry your going through this, I hope you are recuperating now and feeling better. I feel so bad for you being away from home and having to be out when your dealing with it. I know no words to help as my mom did something like this to me on purpose, she thought I was being paranoid about cross contamination till I had a full blown seizure at her house from it. I have forgiven her but Im not sure I can forget it. I felt betrayed so badly.

Take Care

Autumn

Hi Ravenwoodglass,

I have read most of your posts, and was so very interested in what you had to say about celiac disease! I started a gluten-free diet only a month ago, after reading Dr. Graham
