Interesting factoid: they are finding correlations between depression and gluten, and my dearest friend just went gluten free, and she is on depression meds for the rest of her life due to chemical imbalance. However, she noticed that she felt over-medicated a few weeks ago, and I suggested she cut back her meds (after checking with her dr. of course) because of the significant change in diet. So, if you are grain free, ergo gluten free, that might explain it. You are probably looking better, too, which can do wonders for women's self-esteem. I know when I am heavier, I tend to blend into the crowd a bit more (not too much, as red hair just doesn't blend!) than I do when I'm thinner and stronger.
Glad to hear it! Diplomacy is a skill that can be honed to keep you out of trouble, but at least you are standing up for what you believe in. Last I checked, most folks get in trouble for doing so (just as MLKJ), but that is also how you change the world. Cheers!
