    At this point getting myself well again. It has been so long.
  1. Yes,more need to know about how celiac affects our brains. She is very interested in this. She has done some research to help me and I have printed out parts from the forum for her. I have been lucky to have her.
  2. Could anyone direct me to some good articles or sites on depression and anxiety in celiacs. My therapist is very interested in knowing more and how it affects our moods and so on. Thank you
  3. ADD

    That is a problem with me also! I want it fixed now.
  4. ADD

    Thank you every one for your help. I saw my gastroenterologest yesterday and all of my blood work is GREAT. He said it is very unusual to get this far so fast. I have worked hard for it! I am still having all the head issues but getting help with counseling and a psychiatric to try to get the meds right for me with depression. Then on to the ADD. This is a great community and has been a huge help for me. It helped to give me hope and deal all of this. Thank you again.
  5. Detox Symptoms

    I was starving for a week or so and go through it a few months in. I did have a horrible headache for almost 3 weeks.
  6. ADD

    I have bought everything new for myself kitchen wise. I do not eat out. I have checked all the meds and vitamins I take. I feel like my next issue will be OCD! I am feeling better body wise and allot has cleared up and gone away. It is just the depression, anxiety, and now ADD. I am really struggling with these. I go to therapy once a week and a psychiatric DR. to get the meds right. The meds do not help much so far. I would not even be on here if it were not for spell check. It is a daily struggle for me right now. I have applied for disability as I cannot get through an interview with my memory or anything. My Dr's are all encouraging this. I really feel stupid. I can see celiac all the back to school and the ADD also. So I am going through the anger stage of being 57 and finding all these things out now. I feel I missed out on allot. I just want it fixed. Sorry to ramble on in my self pity trip.
  7. ADD

    On top of depression and anxity, I have now found out I also have ADD. I am not responding to meds for depression. Do other Celiacs find they also have ADD? Is this common? I just want my head back. I have been gluten free since January and diagnosed the day after Thanksgiving by biopsy.
  8. You did the right thing getting away from him. How childish. You can go on in life and find happiness for yourself. Put yourself first now. I am so sorry he did that to you.
  9. Can We Get A Chat Room?

    Would love a chat room!!!!!
  10. Too Hot

    I cannot tell you how many tower fans with remotes I have gone through!! I would be at that fan all night. On and off and low or high!!!LOL I do not use it much anymore and I actually get cold now.
  11. Too Hot

    I used to be really hot and sweat up a storm. Summers were awful for me.I have been on the diet 2 months and noticed it is going away. It was always blown off as the change from Dr's or my allergies.
  12. Licorice

    Trader Joes has gluten-free Scotty dogs.
  13. I called Ponds and asked them about a product I Was using. A moisturizer. They told me it had no gluten in it as the rest of their products. I am new at this and find calling these companies is not always true answers. So discouraging at times.
  14. I had very tender joints and sesitive skin. Four weeks on diet and all of that is gone now. If I even banged my arm or leg it would hurt really bad.
  15. I asked to be put to sleep and they did. It was not bad at all.
