  1. Newbie here I understand how you feel and I'm in a similar boat. I have been following a gluten free diet on and off for the last year or 2. My stomach issues subside but I have yet to rid myself of the fogginess in my head which is my biggest complaint. I follow the diet really well for a few months and then I get discouraged and depressed and gorge myself on every processed food I can find. Lol. Can you say set back?! I was just tested for celiac and it came out normal. GI said its a wheat intolerance and I should follow the celiac diet. Maybe I just haven't stuck to it long enough to see the fog lift.... I'm back on it now and plan to stick to it for AT LEAST 6 months if not more in hopes I can get my life back. You are not alone. I understand the unsupportive family members and them not wanting to hear about it. it sucks because you feel like you are alone. Just know there are others out there and we will support you the whole way. We will support each other. I am more doing paleo because I cut out processed foods, even organic gluten free grains/foods. I'd rather not chance it with ingredients I don't know or understand. Now that I have found this amazing forum I am really excited to learn more and see your progress! We can do this!!!!! Best wishes new friend
