Maybe the brain fog just lifted this morning?

 

" You're out of the woods

  You're out of the dark 

 You're out of the night. 

 Step into the sun,

step into the light ...."

 

:)

 

 

Nuttin' like that fog lifting for good.

I'm going into the light....

 

Oh,  I will need to strap some parasols onto my chair as I am terrified of the sun.  And, no offense Irish, I would like California since the humidity is lower, just saying...

I do not do humidity. Like... ever. There is simply no excuse for water in the air. Utah is beautiful year round. Plus we have skiing. Lots of people say we have the best snow on earth, better than CO anyway, all they get is our leftovers. :lol: I don't do snow either, but I can keep the cocoa hot for the snow bunnies all winter long.

 

Plus we have Moab and Arches National Park. Tons of forests and canyons and that sort of thing too. And cities for us civilized folk. The kind with In N Out.

 Nonsense!  it gives curl to your hair and makes your skin all dewey.

 

(but really, this is why they invented "central air")

Wrong!  It gives kinks to your hair and frizzy ends and makes your feets swell :ph34r:

I must be "different". :ph34r: my "half-Mediterranean" roots and all?? Neither my Dad nor I felt this way in the humidity.

 

NOTE: We are coming NORTH in July and August to see the ponies at Saratoga and visit family & friends

in Mass, NH and Cape Cod.

BINGO! I think that some of us are just different. I couldn't stand the weather last time I visited PA and it was only in the 80s most days. It was all I could to to drag myself from bed to the shower to a chair to sweat in all day.

 

I hated the humidity growing up, and I hate it more now. To be fair though, my hair lost all its curl when I came to Utah. :( Straight as a board now, and totally tragic.

 

But hey, if it doesn't make you hate life I say enjoy it!

I want to thank everyone who responded to my post i really appreciate all your feedback. I don't know anyone else with celiacs. Alot of the time i feel like people think i am exaggerating about how i don't want any food with gluten around me. Trying to explain that a simple crumb can make me sick. When food gets brought into the house like pizza by my teenage boys makes me cringe. It's just nice to have people that understand and know more about the disease than i do. I can tell you all are going to be invaluable to me and i thank you.:)

    • Hi, Ok good advice and I am sincere when I say how much I appreciate a lot of the responses, advice and encouragement that have been posted here. I'm not sure what a nutrionist is but a dietician (here in the U.K.) is a heavily regulated medical profession and my dietician is based most of her week in a hospital where doctors and MD's as they are known refer patients to her for help. She works every day with celiacs, dh sufferers and people with crohns, ibs etc and seeing my skin, listened to what I was saying (particularly about how my redness and blisters resolved on a gluten free (though not wheat free) diet for several years, and sent a report to my doctor/MD requesting a battery of tests - tests that can indicate dh, celiac and associated complications. I also have a friend with a wheat allergy and two with celiac (all diagnosed) and they are encouraging me to go ahead with getting these particular tests. So that's great but reading the above quote that suggests that situations like sharing an oven used to cook gluten-containing pizza, should not cause a gluten reaction. I thought, my god what's the point of going through these tests if my recent reactions aren't actually to do with gluten. Although my dietician is concerned about possible dh and has been through years of medical school, I also really trust the advice of an advanced member on this site and if they think oven-sharing shouldn't cause any gluten reaction, what hope do I have with an MD? It has taken me years to pluck up the confidence to ask for any medical help because I feared that sort of response along with a focus on psychological issues and hormones etc early on in the thread (even though, I only started feeling depressed since yesterday). Actually, I'm a mental health nurse so it's good to see people are alert to these issues but I am also pretty familiar with depression and I know that many people with physical health problems are fobbed off by doctors with talk of depression, stress, and hormones. I'm sorry that I took the (above) quote to heart and I know that I allowed that to colour my perception of the whole thread, which has been helpful in many ways. Best wishes to you all, even those I didn't agree with! Rhian 
    • I thought maybe doing a trial period to see if he reacts positively to being gluten free and then adding it back to see if symptoms come back would maybe be helpful to the doctor? But I guess that's true, it might skew things regarding any future tests that might be warranted. 
    • If you haven't had her tested yet please do not go gluten free. Get the celiac testing first as if she does feel better gluten free when she has to go back on gluten for testing she may have much worse symptoms.  There will also be a higher risk of false negatives.
    • I did not mean to imply that you should put him on a gluten free diet.    If you suspect a problem with gluten, please get an opinion from a GI who is celiac savvy.  All celiac testing requires a patient to be consuming gluten.  The slightly equivocal TTG?  That warrants a gene test at the very least.   http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf
