Going on our May Croatia trip in just a few days so thought I'd drop in to tell you that I've not dropped off the face of the planet.  Will be happy to trade snow for green grass, blooming plants and warm temps.  Cannot wait to see what our house renos look like!  :D

 

Please tell me I won't miss our Bingley too much.  :(

 

"Talk" to you soon!  Will report back on some of the intriguing culinary delights we discover (I'm sure there will be one or two as usual).

Caio, Bella! and Safe journey. 

 

No worries about Bingley. We had to leave our Bella for a month and she did fine with a pet sitter.

We left some of our shirts for her to snuggle into our scent.

 

You deserve this vacation in the sunshine and already,

You need the spring and sun and to get out of that frozen tundra!

 

You may miss your new little guy but you have so much to look forward to that you will soon have little time to spend missing him. I'm sure he'll find himself equally distracted, as dogs do.

 

And just think, by the time you come back there may even be some green in your tundra too. :D

We definitely do need the sun and warmth and green.  Everything is all white and/or brown.  Not a stitch of green (well, except for the shirt I am wearing at the moment). 

 

And you are right about Bingley.  We adore him but to be honest it will be a great break, just my husband and I.  There is so much to see and do there we could be occupied within an hour radius for many years.  There is the sea, castle ruins, higglepiggledy ancient villages, towns over 2,000 years old with cobblestone streets, Roman ruins, gobsmackingly gorgeous scenery and amazing food.  :)  

 

My back pain is my huge concern - these long flights nearly kill me.  Honestly.  From our door here to our door there is 36 hours of no sleep, intense pain (most of all, being forced to sit in those brutal torture chambers they call airplane seats) and so on but a good massage therapist is waiting for me at the other end.  Just wish there were painkillers strong enough to help but alas...there are not.  I assume it is sort of akin to childbirth.  You go through agony and then right before your eyes lies your hopes and dreams.  Then you forget the ick.

ah, the essence of vacation....no "ick" factor :)

 

I know how hard it is to travel, hon, and I wonder....can you get some low dose muscle relaxers maybe? skelaxin is not as hard on the system

as flexeril (so I am told)

 

Now, you know how I am about drugs, but maybe there is something for you to take perhaps?

 

I hate the thought of you in pain for so long. I was pretty ICKY after just 1200 miles.

    • Swanson Chicken In A Can
      The original post from here is 8 years old and the product information is likely outdated.  I would contact manufacturer on any info over a year or so old, but even then things can change.
    • Anyone done commercial testing?
      Have you subscribed to gluten free watchdog? They have some great test results and info on what tests they do and why.  If you want specific items to be tested and will fund it, you may contact them to see if you can help the community as a whole.
    • Help understanding test results??
      I am a 20 year old female. I recently had some blood work done to test for celiac disease.  The ref. range for all of the following is 0 -- 14.9 U/mL: Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGA = <0.5 Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGG= <0.8 Deaminated Gliadin PEP IGA= 1.3 Deamninates Gliadin PEP IGG= 242.9  Yes I have a follow up appointment with a gastroenterologist because the last panel was high. I am just hoping that someone can explain the results in a way that is easier for me to understand. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
    • I got WELL!!
      manasota, When I first was diagnosed with Celaic disease I was beginning to have Thyroid problems.  But I began studying up fortifying myself with knowledge which led me to Chris Kresser's site where he has a free book on Thyroid disorders it might be worth downloading it and reading it (I have not) but read some of his blog posts. I think of it like one of my fellow blogger's I follow Susan Hughes Healthy by Nature quoting when she says "I find the human body to be pretty amazing. It is capable of healing itself when given the proper tools to do so. These “tools” include nutrients, thoughts, rest, among other things – all dependent, to a degree, on the unique needs of the individual. Many times proof of this incredible healing capacity of the body is backed only by anecdotal evidence, which, no matter how valid, lacks the respect that formal research supporting this notion would receive." With that in mind consider what I have learned on my journey is all I ask. I will share what has made me feel better. Chris Kresser (I don't remember why) says selenium first then Iodine for thyroid problems and a lot of these fatigue issues can be tied to your thyroid. Having said that my thyroid is better by that I mean I no longer need meds for my thyroid and my chronic fatigue is better. I find two or three brazil nuts a day will give you most of the selenium your thyrorid needs.  Find a Kelp supplement for a good source of Iodine or just start putting idoine (betadine) from the drug store on your legs each night until it stains you in the morning then you know your body has enough Iodine since it readily absorbed when it lingers on the skin for more than 12 hours you have enough iodine. For the Chronic Fatigue I can not over emphasize Magnesium CITRATE in divided doses 3 to 4 times (with each meal and at bed time).  Great book on the subject called "the Magnesium Miracle".  Make sure it is a 100% Citrate though or your body will have time absorbing it. Your energy will really perk up.  Muscle cramps will improve.  Restful dreams (if you can't remember when you last dreamed) will come vividly. Search for the posterboy on this site if you want to read all my posts and see my profile if you want to know what other vitamin's or minerals I have taken to help me "get well". Good luck on your journey.  Read the topic "Still Sick 1 year after diagnosis" for  a summary of other things I have done by the poster ryan7194.

Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your medical regimen. 2 Timothy 2:7 and 2 Cor 1: 3,4 Posterboy,
    • Stomach sore from eating gluten free foods?
      I agree.  Since the cookie was gluten free, your body was reacting to something else.  I also think it's important to not self-diagnose/test because even if you feel better without gluten, you don't know if you are celiac or just have an intolerance to gluten and/or wheat. It's better to go through the testing.
