By Alicia Woodward, LCSW, Editor-in-Chief, Living Without Magazine Katherine Davis, * 19, came to my office complaining of low-level depression and heightened anxiety. She worried all the time, she said, and always felt jittery. This anxiety kept her from going out with friends or speaking up in class. A vegetarian whose primary foods, besides salad, were bread, cereal, pasta and yogurt, Katherine confided that she had a "touchy" stomach and suffered frequent bouts of diarrhea, along with chronic gas and bloating. As I asked about her family history, Katherine mentioned that an aunt had similar digestive issues and a cousin had gluten sensitivity. At the end of our session, I gave Katherine an important homework assignment: Get tested for celiac disease.
