  1. Hi everyone. I'm a new poster here. I'm glad I found this place. I have not been officially diagnosed with a gluten intolerance. The last time I brought up testing with a doctor she informed me they don't do food testing, and it's highly unlikely I will find a place that will diagnose me with having an intolerance (?). So, I figured I know my body best, and I'll just eliminate wheat. I noticed about two years ago I was feeling dizzy, and nauseous. I had a headache all the time, and I couldn't concentrate. Pin that with sinus pain and pressure nonstop. I read about giving up wheat, so I tried. Fast forward to today, I decided last week it would be okay to have breaded food (Wednesday), 6 donuts (Wednesday-Friday) plus toast for breakfast on Sunday. As of today, I'm really feeling down in the dumps. It's been this way since about Tuesday. Zero motivation, brain fog, struggling to concentrate and stay motivated at work. The other night I was watching a TV show about people buying homes, and I seriously got emotional over this abandoned house that nobody seemed to care about anymore. I'm short tempered, and I get easily annoyed with my partner. As far as sleep goes, I can't. I wake up during the night, and usually use an OTC sleep aid to fall asleep. How long will it take for this to pass? I haven't had gluten since Sunday, I'm hoping I can feel normal soon again. I feel like I'm walking around in a fog, with zero direction and zero motivation. But, it's a double-edged sword, because when I feel that way emotionally, all I crave is bread/sweets. Any advice would be appreciated, just so I can feel like I'm not alone feeling this way. I am 100% committed to becoming more careful about my food choices. I cannot continue to live this way. Thanks so much. Lynn
