I just knew you'd be okay.

 

When I had my brain MRI for all the neuro symptoms,
and it was negative, I said to Jack tearfully "well, they looked at my brain, but they didn't find anything in there!!!".


which prompted laughter, of course. :D

 

Please, have a daiquiri for me, too! No, 2!!! 

 

SO happy for you, hon! xxoo

Thanks guys!

 

Last night Me and Bob, from the Red Mill, are getting things together to make brownies.  I'm gonna add walnuts and the walnuts I have are whole nuts.  So I hollar out to hubs in the garage, "how do I make chopped walnuts",  he pops his head up and starts laughing at me and says "grab a clever and have at it".  Now I'm thinking, did I really not know that?  In my defense, I thought some kind of kitchen appliance would chop nuts.  

 

I'm thinking of starting a community in Love2Travel's back yard for the "Cooking Challenged".  I know there are some of you out there who have never chopped nuts.  Anyone with me?

It sounds like you have been carried well!  I hope you will soon feel well strong, and recovered from gluten.

 

I am celebrating by making my first post for days.  My computer didn't let me post for at least 3 days.  I also had trouble reading the site.

Argh....there's nothing like renegade nutz. Nutz that go rogue. Misbehavin' nutz.

 

I ,too use the mini chopper.

 

but this whole discussion has prompted a memory of a funny joke.

 

Shall I tell it?

This works better as a visual, but here goes:

 

Little boy, dressed head to toe in a cowboy outfit goes into an ice cream shop and stares at the woman behind the counter.

She says: "well, aren't you adorable!" 

Kid pulls his little toy guns out of the holster, points them at her  and scowls,  "No, I'm not! I'm a cowboy and I'm tough, so don't make me mad!!" 

She plays along, saying: "Okay, cowboy, what'll it be?"

Kid curls his lip , points the guns again at her and says gruffly: "Gimme a sundae and make it quick!"

She can't help but smile at his tough guy routine, but asks; "would you like vanilla or chocolate ice cream ?"

Kid, becoming irritated snarls: "Chocolate and make it quick!"

She: "pineapple or hot fudge?"

Kid: "Hot fudge and make it snappy, yer makin me mad, lady"

She asks: "and do want marshmallow or whipped cream."

Kid, face turning red and waving the guns in her face yells "yer really pressing it....whipped cream! hurry it up!!"

She can't help herself: : "and do want your nuts crushed?"

 

and the Kid says>>>>>>>>>

 

 

Guess what the last line was????

 

Kid says:

Ohhhhhh...that's a good one Irish.  I was picturing Dennis The Menace as the kid and Zena, Warrior Princess as the Server.  She could do a number with those nuts.

it's.......

 

Lady: "You want your nuts crushed?"

 

Kid: "You want your boobies blown off?"

 

 

 

Probably crossed the line there, :ph34r:  but it is Colleen's celebratory thread and she likes to laugh, so I'm leaving it there. :lol:

 

for a few minutes......until we probably need to  "hide it".

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
