hi there - anyone relate to the above? Increasingly when I get glutened I seem to really struggle mentally for a period after the gastro symptoms have eased. I appear to be pretty sensitive to gluten and am generally fine so long as I only eat food we've prepared from scratch at home. I'm coeliac, diagnosed 5 years ago after decades of symptoms.
We had a wedding to attend at the weekend, i let my guard down and was convinced by the caterer I would be safe, and you can guess the rest.
However the last few times this has happened I seem to hit a really tough patch mentally afterwards - struggling to find the joy in life, exhausted, irritable etc etc - properly down. It really is like a black cloud has descended while I know logically I'm lucky enough to have a generally lovely life (normal good and bad bits etc). Seems to last a good few days, up to a week.
Anyone relate? Just after some reassurance really X
