So.. in the few years leading up to my diagnoses my anxiety was getting WAY out of control.. and for some reason that effected phone calls more then anything, I absolutely couldn't work up the nerve to call and eventually I got to the point where I only answered the phone when I absolutely had to..

Since going gluten free however, My nerves are returning to normal and even improving as each day passes =D

And without further ado, I overcame zed fear RIGHT NAW, I called Hershey Canada and I questioned that guy about gluten like A detective pro >.< =D

I did merge some words together at one point but then after that initial zomg stage I just..dropped all that nervous energy =)

Not assuming everyone cares about that but I just wanted to throw that out there for anyone else with a silly fear, and to let them know it feels GREAT to overcome it lol

I'd also like to state, York Bites are gluten free =P and not produced on a shared line.

how awesome!! i know *exactly* what you mean - i was 'letting things go' aka not making phone calls/answering calls. general anxiety about everything. but - after a year gluten free - recently i DROVE MY CAR 750 MILES to visit family. travel is one of my favorite things ever and i couldn't drive without freaking out/vertigo/etc. my husband couldn't believe i did it! (brought my daughter just in case i had to make her take the wheel) then when i got to my old stomping grounds, i couldn't wait to jump in the driver's seat and sightsee - wooooohoooo - went to an unfamiliar grocery store while there (you hafta pay a quarter to get a grocery buggy in NJ - whaaaaaa?? lol) with no problems :)

back home i am more likely to Leave The House. i may actually make it back to WORK eventually, which i miss very much. not to mention i like to make My Own Money so..... this thing really creeped up and paralyzed me. so much more than i ever realized.

congratulations to you !!! i'll come over and we'll make prank calls!! ("HEY. is your refrigerator running??") lololol

Awesome! I wish I could get over my own reluctance to pick up the phone. I don't know what it is about that damn thing.

That is totally cool! I thought I was the only one with that phobia. I finally overcame it somewhere during college, but I can remember a time in high school when I wanted to hear a particular song on the radio and I begged my sis to call it in for me because I couldn't bring myself to do it. For whatever reason, she wouldn't. Maybe she thought I was going crazy. :P Never did get to hear it that night...

Congrats Newtoitall! :D

Boy do I understand this one!! I'm in a new position at work that requires me to make a certain number of Cold calls every day. I've been unable to do it successfully and it's getting ridiculous!! I don't want to lose my job and I desperately WANT to make these calls and do well at work. But everytime I try to pick up the phone, I freeze. And I've been gluten free since February!! I can't seem to get over this - the anxiety is making me nuts. I really don't want to be medicated, but I don't know how else to overcome this. Every night I tell myself that tomorrow will be different...tomorrow I will do it! Well here I am at 9am and I'm shaking with the thought of making these calls. Praying for the anxiety to go away soon...don't know how much more I can take.
