Just registered for these forums and was thrilled to find this discussion!!
I have not been very diligent since Thanksgiving in staying gluten-free. I kept thinking I was having just a taste here and just a taste there. But I was not feeling well and I attributed it to being laid off and a host of other stress related events.
About six weeks ago, I finally had a complete emotional melt down. It was absolutely horrible! I didn't make the connection until my mom asked if I have been staying gluten-free. Wish you could have seen the HUGE light bulb over my head.
I had all the symptoms of a major depression, too many to list here but I'm sure you all know what I mean. I had forgotten that gluten has that affect on me when I get too much in my system.
I have been gluten-free again since then and I feel so much better! Even my allergies have cleared up.
I have found that if I remain gluten-free that I am also able to remain med free. There is a definite connection!
Let's behave out there!
