Very thought provoking! I remember the days when I could go completely nuts with my temper. At the time that I was totally losing it in speech and actions, I would think "why am I doing this and stop it". But, I could not stop it until the episode was over. I would not hit people but would break things when I was at my worst. Those days are now gone since I have been gluten free.

Me too!- At one point I was told by my manager that I was scaring the new person. (I was also scaring myself.) I also wonder everytime I look at a show where thay are feeding inmates, soldiers or the homeless what effect of those two pieces af white bread that everyone gets has on them, physically and mentally. Do you think we'll ever see the day when gluten free becomes the norm?

it really is true. My husband and I were talking the other day about how people are unhealthy and overweight and depressed all the time now, and most of them eat gluten for breakfast lunch and dinner.

You can tell when my girls get glutened, the first thing that happens to them is emotional symptoms, they are like different kids all together.

What a good article, Claire. I know that gluten affects my mind. Now I can look back and see it clearly. I had panic attacks, depression, anxiety and paranoia. I functioned ok on the surface, but was continualy struggling with myself. Thank you for always posting such useful information :)

Awesome article!! This needs to reach mainstream medicine, In my lifetime hopefully. I'm having problems with people I know trying to get me to eat gluten again..Why are they doing that? It's pissing me off and have decided not to be friends with them anymore..I'm running out of friends and don't know what to do. I guess that they don't want me to be healthy or they want to feel better about themselves. Who knows.

Hi Thomas -

Friends are hard to come by. They probably are just ignorant rather than deliberatlely trying to hurt you.

You need to say to them what you have written here - that your health is important to you - that gluten endangers your health and predisposes you to serious, often irreversible, conditions. Tell them you would just like them to drop the subject - in the interest of retaining friendship. If all that doesn't work, then you need to find some new friends. Find a Celiac Support Group - where everyone knows the score. Claire

That article is soo true. I am soo much more calm and easier to live with now that i am gluten free. I used to be hot headed and fly off the handle a lot. My mind is much more clear now. Now, I find that I am just soo much more patient. Soo, being gluten free does have it's benefits! :D

Because it took so long to find out that I had Celiac, I ruined many relationships with my fly off the handle temper! I could not understand it but couldn't stop it either. My reactions to things seemed almost manic: Very very high or very very low. I could not stand to be around myself, At one point I thought I started menopause because me emotions were so irregular. Glad to say that part has subsided. When I get glutened, it starts all over again and a few days later it stops as quick as it came. Strange disease!

That is soo right that you said that you could not stand yourself, because I remember on one occasion I actually told my doctor those exact words!!!! She put me on depression meds back then. They didn't help too well.

That's one of the first things I noticed (well, that DH noticed ;) ) I never had a temper until college, and then I would fly off the handle for no reason at all. I felt really out of control. Now I feel a lot more emotionally stable and normal. It's great! :D

Great Article!

I was the same way! Sometimes I wonder why my husband married me! I was diagnosed 3 months after we got married and was at my worst for that last 6 months. I threw fits, was depressed, panicky, and irrational. My husband is a quiet level headed guy, and really can't take drama. He has talked about the difference in me since the gluten-free diet, and agrees I'm much much more stable now. It's funny, because if food is ever in question he is the first to stand up (even before me) and say "SHE CAN'T HAVE THAT!!" :P

    • Have you tried keeping a food journal?  If you do, you might be able to spot problematic foods.   One problematic food might be those potatoes.  They are in the nightshade family along with peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant.  Nightshade vegetables contain alkaloids that can be the cause of digestive problems.   After going gluten free, I ate a lot of potatoes and continued having digestive problems.  I cut out nightshade vegetables and had almost immediate improvement.   The alkaloids in potatoes contribute to leaky gut and inflammation.  Here's a scientific study done with mice: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12479649 Here's another article: https://paleoleap.com/nightshades/   Hope this helps!
    • Contaminated mushrooms.....they often grow them from rye or barley seeds that they put the spores on or grow in a compost that con contain wheat...in my case the company says they used rye seeds for the starter. (called after the fact)   I assumed the sliced prewashed ones would be safe and they were on sale....go figure. Anyway Might try my tips for using microwave prep ware for awhile things are cheap. Clean out the microwave put paper towels down inside and cover your food if you need to. Jen gave some decent tips also. I might say if you do dry beans watch out for them also, I am on a keto/paleo diet myself pretty much a very low carb diet consisting of mostly nuts, seeds, egg whites, low carb veggies ...... https://www.nordicware.com/microwave ^Steamers, egg cookers, splatter guards. egg poachers, bacon racks, etc...everything you need to fix your meal in a microwave without pots or pans and cheap... you find alot of them in the microwave section of walmart. I even make make shift tortilla bu using the plates with a lip or the omelette maker and mixing up egg whites, with a tbsp or two of coconut flour and sometimes another nut meal pouring it in and cooking for 1-2 mins making a thin sheet I can use to roll stuff up in.  
    • I live in a house where some people eat bread.  I do not use the toaster that toasts regular bread. All sandwiches are made in a special area of the kitchen and I do not prepare any of our other food there. If you have touched bread, you have to wash your hands before you touch anything else in the kitchen.  After you eat bread, the dishes go directly (and only) into the sink.  I rinse any plates and forks extremely well that have had bread on them and then I put them in the dishwasher (they essentially get washed twice). Then I rinse out the sink.  I have a separate dish scrubber that I use when the plates have had anything with gluten on them.  We don't cook with flour or bake with real flour(except once a year when I let my kids make their birthday cakes). The flour goes everywhere and coats the surface of countertops.  Do you make all your soups from scratch? A lot of soups have flour as a thickener. Also Nuts are often times made in facilities that process wheat. Planters nuts seem to be pretty safe or shop at Nuts.com - they have quite a few options. Hope you feel better soon!
    • If you're like me, you've already tried all multiple options without very good answers, thus the reason you are on the boards...
    • Yes, I was. I had two weak positive blood work, then an endoscopy not for celiac but was very inflamed, and one positive genetic for celiac. My diet is very limited right now. I am almost paleo. I am really struggling to find food that I can eat and not bother my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts, peanuts, beans, chicken, veggies, fruit, and soups. I have cleaned out the house from gluten (except for my dad's rolls  ) I can not change out pans and cookware. I could try to get my own personal but it would be hard. How did you get glutened?
