My mother asked me the other day if I consumed gluten or real butter, because I got manic and she wanted to see if there was a food allergy involved.
I hardly eat bread or real butter. I've grown up on margarine and I use it sparingly unless I cook or bake, which is usually one or twice a week for big meals.
Problem is, my body produces excessive dopamine and there are no foods to reduce that particular chemical. Meds do their thing, but I've got to gauge my direction constantly.
