Adalaide - Ouch! Darn doors....

 

After dinner today I was telling my 5 year old to "Put on your socks!" as he was heading out the door to find a toy he left on the snowy and wet law. He is holding up his foot and showing me his stocking foot and I'm yelling to "Put on your socks!"  Finally my hubby started yelling down the stars: "Shoes! She means shoes!"

 

I just started smacking my head on the table. :blink:

 

winner...yep did this one too...laughing OUT LOUD ....giggle, giggle, shoes :)

 

ps...so when we were in the snow for the weekends we regularly had extra kids...i'd go thru all of their names plus my cat and dog -- ya we dragged them along...then went thru socks, shoes, boots, ski boots, etc....by they time i'd spit out what i meant they were long gone with a wave and a ya...i know mom .... wink

 

pss...they always remembered that we cared to yell after them...............

Mine is due to my head cold but today so far:

 

I somehow went out without brushing my hair. I realized it when i went to wash my hands in the public bathroom after i blew my nose. Luckily, my hair is short enough it doesn't tangle. :lol: But i stood there for a good couple of minutes before i realized what happened.

 

I also forgot to stash one of my water  bottles in my bag. Another thing i never forget to do.

 

Yeah... and then there was the incident last night. I thought i was all done with my homework and i was excited to go to bed early.... only to realize i did the chapter that is due next week instead of today. <_<

I know...most moms go thru every child's name, the pets' names and the next door neighbor kids names before getting the right kid! We just like to blame it on Celiac rather than old age or drinking! :)

 

Hah... and here I thought brain fog was the ONLY celiac symptom I DON'T have. But when I read this post, I realized I've always qualified! I just always used the term "space cadet" instead.

 

At least now I don't have to blame it on old age and drinking....

 

 

Oh and for the record, I've locked my keys in the car three times in the last two months :(

Me too!!!! I could not figure out what people meant by brain fog (maybe i was too foggy?) and i figured it didn't apply to me. These past few month i've realized how often I mess up words or forget why I've gone upstairs or didn't buy the main item I went shopping for. It really is a bit disturbing. I used to be pretty sharp with a great memory - I could remember where on a page a great line in a book was but now... not so much!  lol :rolleyes:

Lol nvsmom...ohh youre totally describing me! and one of my worst faults is getting lost, specifically in my own village I should easily know. And on one occassion about 10 yrs ago, I was driving from Sheffield to Filey and ended up near London...for those not from the Uk, the travel time should've took an hour and a half but instead it took closer to 7 hrs ! :( (my family still won't shut up about it!) I never admit to it but I feel comfortable on here hehe :)

 "space cadet" 

At least now I don't have to blame it on old age and drinking....

 

 I called it "gluten head hell "  PLUS, I blame both of those, too..and celiac.

I  told ya, I blame celiac for everything.  It's the ultimate scapegoat. :D

 

Forget to do something? "Oh sorry, honey, gluten head."

Didn't screw the top on the coffee mug quite well enough this morning. Set it down to tie my shoes, went to lift it by the top....it went all over the family room floor I had just washed yesterday and..then trickled down the top stair....drip drip drip....arrgh!

 

Any of you hear that blue streak I cussed?........ because it was a  &^%$# doozy.

 

Hubs says "what happened?"

me: Celiac made me spill my coffee. (like it's a person)

Hubs: You know, it's been 2.5 years. Your brain works fine now and you don't have memory problems. You can't keep using that for an excuse..

Me: Using what?

I can't remember to take my meds - thyroid and supplaments. I set alarms on my phone and on my way to take them get distracted.....

Gotta improve because I just started t3 and my body gets really unhappy if I'm not on schedule.

Which reminds me, I'm about 3 hours late....

I have come close to losing part of a toe many many times. Still, I never wear shoes in the kitchen. Impressive feat to manage to lose part of two digits in one night!

Was reminded of a few other "lucy ricardo" moments even while sitting.

 

I fell down a flight of stairs while carrying a laundry basket full of clothes in my parents' house. Caught my foot on the stair rug (we assume) and did a split like a cheerleader. Don't know how I did not split myself in two like a wishbone. Broke bones in my foot, banged up everything I own  and injured an area that no one should injure. (if you get my drift)   My Dad felt so bad, he ripped the carpet right out. 

 

When I still has major parasthesia from celiac, I was sitting in my chair, got up and before I realized my legs were still prickly and numb, (cause that was all the time really) I took a step, my ankle buckled underneath me and I heard Crack ,Crack, Crack. I swear, I saw stars and flying birdies and nearly passed out. The hubs was at golf and I could not get up off the floor for about an hour. That ankle took 5 months to heal properly. Torn ligaments and tissue damage. Doc said he wished I had just  broken it "like everyone else does" as it would have been easier to just set it.

 

And a classic gluten head moment (right after Dx and still "froggy")--

Put on some olive oil and garlic to saute for dinner, walked in the other room to ask the hubs a quick question and completely forgot about it.

Ever smell burned garlic and olive oil? yuck.............and the pan, well, let's just say it was given a proper funeral. :lol:

Oh my gosh Irish!! Those injuries sounds terrible!! I have killed at least 3 frying pans with oil, takes FOREVER to get that smell out! I'm so lucky that I didn't burn the house down. Eek.

I was a full on gluten head yesterday. Nothing I said made any sense!! Then at home last night I spaced off during a conversation with the hubs... He laughed at me and told me to get it together! I went to playful smack him, missed, and end up losing my balance and banging my hip into the counter. Good grief! X-)

Bahaha! That sounds about par for the course in this house. :lol:

 

Many many years ago I worked in a small local hotel at the front desk. I worked the occasional night shift which I rather liked. All was quiet by about midnight and I could do my rounds of the hotel and read a book. Then the bar closed at 2, after which I would mop and lock up. Then, until I had to go unlock doors at 5 in the morning I was free to do whatever I wanted which included napping in their incredibly comfortable chairs in the lobby. The owner of the hotel also owned a nightclub down the street and on Friday and Saturday nights the bouncer would come up, knock on the window and I would get the cash back from him. One night he comes and knocks gently on the front window, I wake from my little catnap and pop right out of that chair to let him in. Well, I fail to notice I had tucked my foot under me and it was completely dead asleep. I almost fell into the front window! I ended up on crutches for weeks.

Oh I am totally a "dodo" bird when glutened or legumed or a dozen other -ed's.

 

Not Molly -- I have done this too -- so many times -- the clutsy thing runs strong in me and my kids...funny thing is we are all much more coordinated since removing gluten -- imagine that ;)

When I first went gluten free, I gained 15 pounds in the first month-I

have stretch marks from it. But it was ALL in the hips, my butt like,

exploded. So for almost a year after that I kept ramming into things

with my hips because they were bigger than I was used to! I mean,

the first 15 came quickly, but I continued to gain weight that year, and

it was mostly in the hipp-al area. Constant bruises, it was pretty funny

honestly.

 

I still do stuff like misjudge the swing of the door on the car I've had

for FIVE YEARS and crack my head or my arm or some unusual part

of my anatomy..... I'm an expert faller, I've never broken anything from

falling down and I most CERTAINLY should have..... :ph34r:

You know, I've never actually broken anything from falling either. I don't think jumping off a swingset when I was like 7 or 8 counts. And I don't mean swinging high and jumping off a swing. I climbed the set onto the top metal pole and jumped off. It was in the yard and my mom yelled at me constantly that if I didn't knock it off I was going to break something. Eventually I did. :ph34r: I hobbled into the house, ate dinner and went to bed walking as well as I could and saying I didn't feel well. I didn't want to tell my mom I hurt myself and get in trouble. FYI, going to bed with a broken foot and ankle means you can't get a cast because it will be too swollen in the morning.

 

It isn't all clumsiness. Sometimes it is plain stupidity. :lol:

    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
    • You should never have cut out gluten until you had the biopsy done. It's much worse to have to go back on after you've been off gluten for a while. There's no way I could ever do the gluten challenge after being off gluten for even a month because my reactions got so dramatically worse.  Stress definately can trigger celiac- before I was diagnosed - it got the worst after surgery and after a stressful time planning my daughters wedding. 
    • Hi not diagnosed celiac, Welcome to the forum! Your doctor should be sent to remedial celiac disease training.  Since that probably won't happen, I suggest you find a new doctor.  He doesn't know what he's doing when it comes to diagnosing celiac disease. You should not have gone gluten-free before completing all celiac disease testing.  The testing for celiac disease depends on the immune reaction being active.  Removing gluten before testing removes the antigen that causes the immune system to react, and lowers the chances of getting a correct test result dramatically.  The University of Chicago celiac disease center recommends: ******************************************** http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ Prior to blood testing we recommend 12 weeks of eating gluten. Prior to an endoscopic biopsy we recommend 2 weeks of eating gluten. In the case of a severe reaction to gluten, a medical professional may opt to shorten the 12-week challenge and move immediately to an endoscopic biopsy. May, 2013 ******************************************** So you will need to go back to eating gluten before your endoscopy.  That may cause worse symptoms than before when you were eating gluten.  So it would have been better to do all testing before going gluten-free. Can you search for a celiac disease support group in your area?  They exist in many parts of the USA and world.  They can be a good place to get a knowledgeable doctor recommendation.  There is also a doctors subsection of this forum where you can search to see if any doctors in your area were recommended.
    • Hi All, I'm new to this and very confused! I have Lea & Perrins WC sauce, it lists it's first ingredient as Malt Vinegar.  I have the Coeliac Society of Ireland Food List 2015 here, and it says "All Vinegars are Gluten Free including Malt Vinegar." Doesn't that mean that L&P Worcestershire sauce is safe?   Their website states " Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire Sauce is cholesterol free, fat free, preservative free, gluten free and has 80% less sodium than soy sauce. " I'm cooking for my coeliac niece, can't afford to make a mistake!
    • I get these crazy cravings for some things I can not eat anymore. Not only am I diagnosed with celiac but I also have a allergy to corn, olives, sesame, peanuts, and intolerance to yeast, soy, dairy, and a very low tolerance for carbs/sugars, Top it off with I can not digest meats or egg yolks, they just give me the burps and come up later.
        To deal with these I find myself turning to Republic of Teas (They have a great desert tea line up all certified gluten-free) and sweetening them with monk fruit extract, or stevia. And I find myself making Puddings bases that I use for shakes, dips, and ice-cream for meals. The puddings are normally a blend of cashew, or almond milk with a thickening agent like agar agar, pectin, or knoxx gelatin, blended with a sweetener like xylitol, swerve, stevia, monk fruit or a combination. And flavored with Lor Ann Oils (all gluten-free certified and you can find the kosher ones listed as such) super strength flavors or fountain syrups to match something I can not eat normally a combination of two flavors (Strawberry Cheesecake, Banana and Carmel, Cookies & Cream, etc) Then I add a fat that matches best, like almond butter, cashew butter, hemp butter, ground flax seed, coconut flour, chocolate, Pumpkin seed butter or a combination) These bases are normally blended up and consumed with 1-2 scoops of protein powder and eaten with steamed vegges as a side dip or loaded into a ice cream maker for a desert after my meals.      Also found myself making desert soups....like a pumpkin soup that taste like pumpkin pie. I am sure we all have our little quirks but this is one of mine for getting that sweet craving taken care of. Most premade items are off my list due to the allergies and it seems most companies use the oils, starches I am allergic to as non stick or thickening agents, Even the semi safe ones tend to put way to much sugars in them and I find myself only being able to nibble . There is also my little binge issues with almonds, pumpkin seeds, and, cocoa but that was explained to me as normal And on my most craving for peanuts I have found sancha inchi powder to work great, The Powder itself taste like the girl scout peanut butter cookie sandwich from my childhood, And is great mixed with a bit of almond milk into a butter or used in baking and smoothies. Before this I have been making Artisan blends of almond butter for years and even made a market selling them to pay  for my own consumption. Baked goods wise I have a bunch of recipes I make for others and sell at markets and this allows me to nibble on a sample to check it, as most contain a bean or gluten-free Harvest Oats/Flour in them and the carbs from that and the coconut sugars bother me. Still helps with cravings there, I only have 2 recipes that sell good and are safe for me to eat full servings of but are so expensive as they use almond and coconut flours, low sugars/xylitol and are paleo that I only can afford to make them once a month. Posting to hear about some odd and out there ways others deal with substitutions and cravings. Please do not bash mine as odd as they might be as they keep me from going crazy. (Yes I know DROP THE OATS, fact is I only get them when tasting stuff and they are gluten-free Harvest, the only ones I have never gotten glutend with)
