Yes, cookies make me depressed! Not only if I eat too many of them but specifically if they contain gluten. My middle son has always had an issue with gluten ever since he was little and could never eat it. I always cooked separately for him and we continued to eat regular foods. I noticed about two years ago I was starting to get arthritis symptoms in my fingers once in awhile. I always had a sensitive stomach but I am allergic to just about everything, so I thought it was just my allergies. I noticed I would get "old lady hands" after I ate pizza, cookies etc. I never thought it was the gluten.
I also noticed some days my mood would be so out of wack and it was not that time of the month and I would just be plain depressed, tired and irritable for no reason what so ever. I was doing research and reading for my son and realized I was gluten intolerant. I stopped eating gluten. I put the whole family on a gluten free diet. My stomach issues have cleared up, no longer have old lady hands and my mood and energy has improved. My husband says his knees no longer hurt him.

When I eat gluten, I feel it in my hands immediately and then my mood and I am so tired.
C maybe for the Cookie Monster but not me.
