  1. THANK YOU ALL, SHE IS PLANNING, ON GIVING YOUR SUGGESTIONS A TRY, WE DECIDED IF WE BAKE THE BREAD AT HOME, IT WOULD BE BETTER THAN STORE BOUGHT BREAD. SO I THINK SHE WILL PLAN ON TRYING ONE OR TWO MIXES. DO THEY HAVE BANNANA BREAD AND OTHER FLAVORS AS WELL?
  2. OK, HERE IS THE PROBLEM, MY FRIEND BOUGHT THE GLUTEN FREE BREAD AT THE HEALTHFOOD STORE, BUT SHE HATES IT, SHE SAYS IT HAS NO FLAVOR AND HAS THE TEXTURE OF A SPONGE, OK I FIGURED I WOULD MAKE SOME, SO I BOUGHT A MIX....HELLO RATHER EXPENSIVE.....I MADE IT, SHE DIDN'T LIKE THAT ONE EITHER, OK, I HAD ORIGIONALLY INTENDED ON GETTING A BREAD MACHINE, AND MAKING BREAD, BUT I FOUND OUT THAT WOULDN'T WORK. SHE MISSES SANDWICHES SOMETHING AWFUL, AND I'M WANTING TO FIX THIS, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, GLUTEN FREE BAKING FOR HER HAS ME ALL CONFUSED. GETTING THINGS LIGHT AND FLUFFY SEEMS TO BE IMPOSSABLE. HER OTHER MEALS I HAVE MADE SHE IS INCREDABLY PLEASED WITH......I JUST FEEL AWFUL I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND A BREAD THAT'S NOT LIKE CARDBOARD........PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN....YOU ALL HAVE HELPED WITH MY OTHER QUESTIONS AND HAVE MADE THIS TRANSITION RATHER EASY
  3. THANK YOU ALL, I APPRECIATE ALL OF THE NICE COMMENTS, AND ALL OF YOUR HELP. I'M JUST PARANOID ABOUT ACCIDENTALLY POISONING HER. AND GEE WE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT HAVING HER OWN TOASTER AND STUFF LIKE THAT, WE MADE A SPECIAL TRIP TO GET HER OWN KITCHEN IMPLIMENTS, AND BATH PRODUCTS. SHE WAS NONE TOO HAPPY ABOUT THE MAKEUP, AND SHE ISN'T REAL HAPPY ABOUT THE CHANGING LIPSTICK COLORS, SHE HAS GOTTEN PRETTY ATTACHED TO CERTAIN THINGS. BUT WE MADE A JOKE ABOUT IT AND MOVED ON.
  4. I'M NOT A CELIAC, BUT I AM HERE FOR MY FRIEND, WE LIVE IN NE OH NEAR THE PA BORDER, ABOUT A HALF HOUR FROM ELLWOOD CITY. SHE WAS DIAGNOSED ALMOST A WEEK AGO, I'VE BEEN IN HERE FOR A FEW DAYS SEARCHING FOR INFORMATION FOR HER AND BUGGING FOLKS WITH ANOYING QUESTIONS. BUT I FIGURE, THE MORE I KNOW, THE EASIER IT WILL BE FOR ME TO HELP HER. I'VE BEEN TAKING NOTES, I KNOW IT SOUNDS REDICULOUS, BUT THIS IS NEW FOR US, AND I'M AFRAID I MAY FORGET STUFF. ALTHOUGH I THINK I KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS THAN HER DOCTORS DO.
  5. THANK YOU SO MUCH, I'M SURE WE WILL GET USED TO THIS EVENTUALLY, IT WILL JUST TAKE SOME TIME. I WAS WONDERING WHEN BAKING IF THINGS RISE LIKE THEY DO WITH REGULAR FLOUR, BECAUSE SHE BOUGHT A PANCAKE MIX AND THEY DIDN'T SEEM AS FLUFFY AS THE REGULAR ONES.
  6. THANK YOU EVERYONE, THIS IS A MOST HELPFUL SITE, I DID PRINT THE LISTS OF THINGS SHE CAN'T HAVE, AND I TOOK IT TO THE STORE WITH ME. SINCE SHE STARTED THE DIET ON MONDAY, SHE HASN'T HAD TO RUN TO THE BATHROOM RIGHT AFTER SHE ATE, THAT HAD GONE ON FOR THE PAST 17 YEARS. I WAS WONDERING WHY IT TAKES DOCTORS SO LONG TO EVEN CONSIDER GLUTEN TO BE A POSSABLE CULPRIT? WHEN I RAN THE SEARCH ON THE WEB MANY SITES CAME UP, SO IT DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE AN UNHEARD OF THING, ESPECIALLY FOR A GASTRO DOC.
  7. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, FOOD ALLERGY, TMJ, STRESS, BUT IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING OUT OF ALIGHNMENT IN YOUR NECK, IT WILL CAUSE YOUR HEAD TO HURT. MY DAUGHTER ALSO SAYS WHEN HER PONY TAIL IS TOO TIGHT, BY THE END OF THE DAY SHE HAS A HEADACHE.ALSO HAVE YOU HAD YOUR EYES CHECKED LATELY. CAFFIEN SENSITIVITY?
  8. I AM A TAT DESIGNER/PIERCER. I HAVE TWO FULL SLEEVES, AND MY TOTAL INK COMES TO ABOUT 400 HOURS WORTH, I THINK I HAVE JUST A TINY BIT OF EXPERIENCE HERE. ASKING SOMEONE IF IT'S GOING TO HURT IS A RELATIVE QUESTION, I PERSONALLY FALL ASLEEP WHILE GETTING INKED, TO ME THEY DON'T HURT AT ALL. YOU HAVE TO JUDGE FOR YOURSELF HOW YOU DEAL WITH PAIN. BUT I TOTALLY AGREE WITH ASKING AS MANY QUESTIONS AS YOU NEED TO FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH YOUR ARTIST, THEY SHOULD IN NO WAY MAKE YOU FEEL AS THOUGH YOU ARE BEING PUSHED INTO ANYTHING. IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE....WALK OUT, OR RUN. THE PLACE SHOULD BE SPIC AND SPAN, AND EVEN SMELL LIKE DISINFECTANT. IF YOU ASK THE ARTIST TO STOP BECAUSE IT HURTS HE SHOULD, AND NOT MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE WUSSING OUT. IF YOU ARE LATEX SENSITIVE MAKE SURE YOU TELL THEM, THEY SHOULD HAVE THE NON LATEX GLOVES. THEY SHOULD OPEN A NEW NEEDLE INFRONT OF YOU AND BREAK IT WHEN THEY ARE DONE, ALL THE LITTLE INK WELLS ARE DISPOSABLE, AND THE TUBES SHOULD BE PLASTIC, INFACT EVERYTHING IN USE SHOULD BE COVERED IN PLASTIC, CORDS AND EVERYTHING (WE ARE) RED IS THE MOST SENSITIVE COLOR, WHITE, AND THE GLOW IN THE DARKS GENERALLY LAST THE LEAST. ALTHOUGH I STILL HAVE ALL OF MINE AFTER 12 YEARS. YOU DO WANT TO BE CAREFUL WITH THE LOTIONS YOU USE AFTERWARDS, I PERSONALLY LIKE AVEENO.USE ABSOLUTELY NO LOTION OF ANY SORT BEFORE YOU GO IN, SOMETIMES IT'S HARD TO GET OFF AND YOUR INK WON'T TAKE WELL. AND YES, ABSOLUTELY CHECK THE CREDENTIALS OF THE STUDIO, MAKE SURE THEY HAVE AN EXCELLENT RATING FROM THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT, AND THAT THEY HAVE POLICIES IN PLACE ABOUT INKING PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN DRINKING, AND PEOPLE WHO ARE ILL. CHECK YOUR ARTISTS WORK BEFORE YOU CHOOSE ONE, THEY SHOULDN'T MIND YOU WATCHING THEM WHILE THEY ARE INKING SOMEONE ELSE, THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO CHECK THE ATTITUDE OF THE ARTIST AS WELL. IT'S ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO BRING IN YOUR OWN DESIGN AND WORK WITH AN ARTIST, THIS INSURES YOU HAVE A ONE OF A KIND PIECE OF WORK THAT WILL LOOK GOOD AND LAST YOU A LIFETIME. USE THE HIGHEST SPF SUNSCREEN YOU CAN FIND TO INSURE THE SUN WILL NOT FADE YOU MASTERPIECE, INFACT THERE ARE SOME ESPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR TATTOOS THAT HAVE A HIGH AMOUNT OF ZINK IN THEM.
  9. HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT A CAN OF CAMP DRY OR SCOTCH GUARD?
  10. PERHAPS YOU SHOULD GIVE HIM THE FEEDBACK THAT HE WAS PUSHY AND RUDE!
  11. OK I HAVE WRITTEN BEFORE (IN ANOTHER POSTING) THAT MY FRIEND HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED EARLIER THIS WEEK, SHE IS MY BEST FRIEND AND I HAVE BEEN POURING OVER WEB SITES AND BOOKS AND STUFF (PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING I CAN GET MY HANDS ON) WE WENT TO THE SUPER MARKET TO SEE WHAT THEY HAD SHE WOULD BE ABLE TO EAT, AND I THINK WE ARE GOING TO GO BLIND FROM READING THE TINY LABELS, WE ALSO WENT TO THE HEALTHFOOD STORE, WHERE SHE DID GET A FEW THINGS TO TRY. SHE ORDERED A FEW THINGS ON LINE, AND I PRINTED A BUNCH OF RECEIPES AND MADE HER A COOKBOOK OF HER VERY OWN, SO I CAN MAKE STUFF OUT OF THERE. I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANYONE E-MAILING ME ANY GREAT RECIPES THEY HAVE AND ENJOY. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT THE THINGS I CAN DO IN THE KITCHEN TO PREVENT CROSS CONTAMINATING ANYTHING I MAKE FOR HER. ALSO I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT ANYONES SUGGESTIONS OF THINGS WE MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT YET, THOSE LITLE THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED THAT WE MAY USE EVERYDAY WHICH MAY CONTAIN GLUTEN THAT WE DON'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT. I WOULD HATE TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SENDING HER BACK TO THE HOSPITAL ACCIDENTALY.....OH THE GUILT. I'M SURE SHE WOULD APPRECIATE ANYONE'S FUNNY STORIES ALSO, SHE HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT HAS KEPT A SUNNY DISPOSITION THROUGH THIS VERY TRYING TIME. THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP YOU MAY BE ABLE TO PROVIDE, I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH HOW IT WOULD BE APPRECIATED........CHELE STINGERKILLS@AOL.COM
  12. WOW THIS IS SO COOL, BUT I DID LEFT CLICK AND I DIDN'T GET ANY COLOR, BUT IT'S STILL WAY COOL!
  13. I WAS WONDERING HOW LONG FROM THE TIME YOU HAD IT PIERCED UNTIL THE TIME YOU NOTICED THE LUMP AND THE GOO? DID THE GOO HAVE AN ODOR AND/OR COLOR? AND BEING AS THAT I'M A PIERCER/CUSTOM TATTOO DESIGENER, MY BIGGEST QUESTION WOULD BE DID YOU GET IT DONE IN A SHOP WITH A GOOD REPUTATION, AND A CLEEN RECORD FROM THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT?
  14. I AM NEW TO THIS WHOLE THING. JUST EARLIER THIS WEEK INFACT. MY BEST FRIEND,(AND SWEETHEART'S SISTER) WAS DIAGNOSED. I WENT TO THE SUPERMARKET, WITH PAPERS IN HAND LISTING WHAT SHE CAN AND CAN'T HAVE, AND TO THE HEALTHFOOD STORES SEARCHING FOR ACCAPTABLE SUBSTITUTIONS FOR HER. RIGHT AWAY I WENT ON LINE LOOKING FOR SITES, AND RECEIPES JUST FOR HER, INFACT MAKING A RECEIPE BOOK JUST FOR HER. I AM ALSO LUCKY IN KNOWING A FOOD SCIENTIST WHOM I CAN CALL AND ASK WHAT MAY BE SUBSTITUTED FOR OTHER INGREDIENTS. AND IF I DON'T KNOW WHAT SOMETHING IS, THIS IS A TREMENDOUS HELP. THIS IS A LEARNING PROCESS FOR US ALL. NOT JUST FOR HER. THIS AFFECTS HER QUALITY OF LIFE....FOREVER. SHE HAS SUFFERED ENOUGH, AND IN MY OPINION WE ALL NEED TO LEARN ABOUT IT, AND MOST OF US ARE ACTIVLY SEARCHING OUT INFORMATION. IT DOES HELP, AND MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE THAT THE WHOLE FAMILY IS VERY CLOSE KNIT AND ACTIVELY INVOLVED ON A DAILY BASIS. I ASKED FRIENDS IF THEY KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT IT, AND IF THEY DID THAT WAS GREAT, AND EVEN FOUND A FEW WHO KNEW PEOPLE AND WERE ABLE TO POINT ME IN SOME RATHER HELPFUL DIRECTIONS. IN MY OPINION, IF YOU CARE FOR SOMEONE, YOU WOULD WANT TO BE AS HELPFUL AS POSSABLE, AND FIND OUT AS MUCH AS POSSABLE ON THEIR CONDITION, TO MAKE THEM MORE COMFORTABLE. IN THIS CASE FAMILY GET TOGETHERS WILL BE GLUTEN FREE! WE WILL ALL BENIFIT.
