I do have to apologize for not updating for a couple of days but had a hectic schedule and one teething child to deal with.
I think I have found one thing that is definately not helpful whilst battling depression. I am gluten intolerant so I should not be eating any gluten. Lately I have consciously stopped eating gluten and have found it has helped a lot.
Well on Saturday, I was naughty and ate lasagne for lunch and a muffin. Well believe me that night I paid for it. I found that by Saturday night I had such strong self harming urges that it was scary. I couldn’t believe just how bad it was. However was it due to gluten?
I am strongly thinking that it was due to the gluten because I have had no gluten for the last two days and have not had any self harming urges. I am documenting when these urges occur and seeing if there is any link.
I am also going to do research into the area and put together information in regards to depression and gluten.
