    Try going gluten free and / or read as much information on the gluten free diet as possible. You have listed some of the main symptoms of someone who is gluten intolerant.

    Are you serious? Thats the best you got? Obviously you don't have a clue of the pain that drives one to being so depressed that you want to end it all. And you offer a gluten free diet? Get a clue.

    Actually, I do. Been there. Had it worse than you actually, with a brain tumour, gluten ataxia and kidney neuropathy. So. Having been there, I'm offering you an alternative to look into to see if it applies to you.

    You can either take it, research it, research other things or just sit there bitching and complaining that life isn't worth living. It aint' going to get any better honey unless you do something about it.
