Wow. Wish go back in time stop eating gluten years ago, maybe avoid every problem ever had entire life.*
Because suddenly everything better.
- BG not so spiky. (Empirical data!)
- Not depressed. (Wants be w. friends, do things, chat, play UNO/Blokus, make plans for future skiing, parties, trips, etc.)
- Not anxious. (No sensory aversion problems: drink entire kale smoothie instead of no way/hide, novel length/brand socks, different fuzziness-level fleece…)
- Also this: all week muy hypo. Turn insulin down maybe 10% each day over course of 1 week, change 9:30am – 4pm I:C from 1:15 to 1:18 & then to 1:20 then to 1:25. More science: today forgot bolus for banana/peanut butter snack. Spiked entire hour+ later. (I.e. took over 60 minutes for that banana go crazy zzztzzzt HIGH OVER 200 in there!)
Could be real biology?
SEPTEMBER: Celiac disease undiagnosed, epithelial lining intestine flat. Maybe glucose crash right through into blood–cause crazy spikes & need more insulin & somber/anxious mood.
NOVEMBER: Celiac disease diagnosed, GF diet adopted, intestine heals/forms layers, layers villi/microvilli, glucose gobs can’t bust into blood in big rush? Seems like. Anyway.
Could be true. OK if not true. Happy feeling better any reason; celiac escapade work out like gangbusters.
Other thing really helped: Hyperbole and a Half. Now a book. Very serious, funny writing/drawings about depression, anxiety, problematic dogs. Not children’s book, some F-bombs, but def. recommend for child/adult w. this peculiar, simultaneous set problems. Maybe OK if mother just introduce as this has some F-words in it, but it’s only because the protagonist is very upset, and I know you know to not say that word but I still think you would like this book. Not stop laughing. Love book so much almost today adopt 8-year-old chihuahua w. harelip because resemble The Simple Dog.
Really like Scully said this. Felt like dawn on, yeah. Felt like: how did I ever have the energy/time to analyze everything to death like that? Today decide try meet self where self is. Sometimes need analyze everything, sometimes run away w. silent scream in head, sometimes all copacetic not even cross mind might consult oracles, sometimes wrapped up in It’s fascinating! She lays a terracotta colored egg. (Next one: jonesing for a glossy creamcolored convertible with dijon velvet upholstery and you.)
**Not strictly true. Bigfoot also stop gluten, develop rash (?) corners of nose, very flaky. Seems like thing would happen when person add disruptive food. Wise friend point out very likely gluten toxins exit body via nose corners. If notice in person, remain nonchalant.
