  1. I guess I am lucky. I have a husband that is fully on board with the gluten free eating. All our dinners are gluten free. We do have gluten bread for sandwiches for lunches for the gluten eaters in the house but I am not expected to touch it. I am going out of town this weekend and told my DH that he could make what ever he wants for the family when I am gone. He told me he likes the way we eat, he thinks it is healthy, and that he is going to continue with the gluten free dinners when I am gone. He, also,loves the gluten free brownie and cake mixes. He tells people that complain about being sick all the time about my results and tells them they should try gluten free diet.
  2. You are still healing. Some foods may not digest so well until your small intestine is working properly. I have been gluten free for 7 months. I have problems with pork, apricots and milk. I do not eat or drink too much of these because I get a stomach ache.
  3. My Doc did it with just diet alone and my life is so much more positive now that I will never go back to eating gluten. I feel no reason to find out through testing.
  4. Here are some quotes form famous dyslexics and dealing with thier dyslexia. I wonder where this world would be without them? (More quotes http://www.dys-add.com/backiss.html#famous) I was, on the whole, considerably discouraged by my school days. It was not pleasant to feel oneself so completely outclassed and left behind at the beginning of the race. --Winston Churchill He told me that his teachers reported that . . . he was mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in his foolish dreams. --Hans Albert Einstein, on his father, Albert Einstein I, myself, was always recognized . . . as the "slow one" in the family. It was quite true, and I knew it and accepted it. Writing and spelling were always terribly difficult for me. My letters were without originality. I was . . . an extraordinarily bad speller and have remained so until this day. --Agatha Christie My teachers say I'm addled . . . my father thought I was stupid, and I almost decided I must be a dunce. --Thomas Edison You should prefer a good scientist without literary abilities than a literate one without scientific skills. --Leonardo da Vinci I just barely got through school. The problem was a learning disability, at a time when there was nowhere to get help. --Bruce Jenner, Olympic gold medalist Young George . . . although he was bright and intelligent and bursting with energy, he was unable to read and write. Patton's wife corrected his spelling, his punctuation, and his grammar. --Biographer Martin Blumenson on General George Patton
  5. I am dyslexic and I can tell you this is not dyslexia. You would not be forgetting numbers you would be getting them out of sequence. So if your room was 369, you may remember it as 396. Spelling would not be great. Dyslexics depend on memory. Erin Brockovich has dyslexia she depended on her memory so she would not have to depend on writing about all those cases. She would have to write it down eventually but she would not have been able to write it down while she was speaking to the people. Most dyslexics have better spatial orientation. If you look up info on dyslexia you might be surprised to find out the many famous scientist, actors, inventors, and politicians that were and are dyslexic. Dyslexia is not brain damage.
  6. I came off Lexapro last June. I do not need to take it anymore since I stopped eating gluten. I still have some sleep problems, sometimes my brain will not turn off.
  7. Yeah JerryK! I have gone 7 months without gluten. At first it was hard. At some restaurants I wanted to cry. I feel soo much better now being gluten free is very easy. It just became a matter of retraining my shopping habits. My husband is a big help. All dinners at home are completely gluten free, with no complaints. His life easier now that I feel better. Stick with it it will become second nature.
  8. I find exercise and meditation helps me. It lifts my spirits.
  9. What you are feeling is not a placebo effect. The fog is very real. When I came out of it I became very angry with people who seemed to depend on me being in a fog all the time.
  10. No test, just a lot of symptoms. I have been checked for just about everything else. All symptoms went away when I quit eating gluten. I have been able to go back to college after having to quit after 9 years.
  11. Thanks for the replies. My struggle right now is convincing family members that have the same symptoms I have to stop eating gluten. Depression, fatigue, mood swings, food allergies and IBS run ramped through my family. I have an aunt who says she cannot eat sandwiches every day because she feels awful if she does. We all also have a problem with pork, too. They have stopped eating pork.
  12. I have been gluten free for about 7 months and have lost 35 lbs. I believe it is a combo of things; I am not hungry all the time, I am not fatigued and not feeling panic and anxiety. I feel soo much better that I am more active and I am eating at home more often. My life has improved 100% since I have gone gluten free; because of this I find it very easy to remain gluten free. My husband
  13. HI, I am new here and have a question. I was told by a doctor years ago to stop eating gluten, so I cut back on gluten and my "arthritis" went away. I went many years just cutting back. Then I was seeing a psychotherapist for anxiety and panic attacks. I told her about my gluten allergy, she said to get off of it completely. I did not know that it was causing my depression, mood swings, anxiety, panic attacks, brain fog, IBS, headaches, and feeling sick all the time. I have been off of it for over 6 months now. I feel great now! I spoke to my doctor (different from the first) about being tested for it. She told me that it is very invasive and not needed. If I feel so much better by not eating gluten, then don
