I'm not crazy...I'm allergic After a lifetime of dealing with what she was told was depression, “Julie” found that her problem wasn't all mysterious and uncontrollable chemical reactions. Medically identified sensitivities and/or allergies to foods and environmental conditions seemed to have a strong correlation to the same emotional and mental states that she had experienced throughout the years as depression. These were sometimes accompanied by so-called typical allergy symptoms, but in some cases those medically-recognized symptoms were missing. In desperation she reached out to family member and author, Sherilyn Powers, who had been exploring her own unusual reactions to foods and environment. Together they explored the connection between allergies and depression enabling Julie to take control of her life after fifty years of helplessness. This book is a journey of discovery and search for medical studies to help explain how every day things could be related to reactions like panic attacks, depression, uncontrollable crying, brain fog, body aches and pains and many more, when the popularly accepted allergic/sensitive reactions only include symptoms such as itchy eyes, a runny nose, and hives.
