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

 

 

I prefer to think of it as "wisdom challenged".

I've totally walked straight into a glass door at a shoe store. It was open when I went in! My friends didn't let me live that one down for a while, and damn my head hurt!

When brain-foggy, I'll often think I've done things I haven't, or assume I haven't and do it again. I do a lot of walking into the kitchen instead of the copy room here at the office (next to each other) to, you know, get my printing from the fridge.

Lately I keep putting my clothes into the washing machine, walk away while its filling up, and come back an hour late to discover I forgot to put the lid down! argh!

 

But yes, definitely less brain-fog idiocy when not glutened. The rest is just natural.

Hahaha Keeping the copies in the fridge should be standard practice. That way I could always find them!  ;)  I feel you on the washing machine, I just ran an entire cycle WITHOUT the clothes in there. FACE.PALM.

Hey Irish!  Yeah, I'm still ok. Physically, if not mentally. HA!  Hanging in there and counting down the hours.  :wacko:

A clean washing machine is a good washing machine. I have never done that one, but I have put the wet clothes in the dryer

and then, failed to start it. DUH!

 

well, Amy if nothing else, you are convinced of the reality of gluten head and no matter what your test results say,

I think you know what needs to be done.

 

now, if you will excuse me, I have to go check to make sure I actually put the food in the slow cooker this morning before turning it on and walking away. :mellow:  :D

as i am smugly thinking:

 

*i* don't have gluten-head anymore...  i read my shopping list and it says:

 

bandaids

bandaids 

 

lolz i think that's just natural, no gluten involved.  i do keep in shape by regularly running up the stairs to forget what i went up there for.  i remember when i get back down, so there's always 2 trips involved :)  who needs 'insanity'?  when you have *senility* hahahaaa

This morning I straight shot myself in the face, eyes wide open with Aqua d'Gio cologne.  Brutal.  I also went all "Rick Perry" on a coworker...  I was making three points about the question at hand...  After the second point there was a long pause and then I said...  "Well, I forgot the third one...  Oops..."

This morning getting ready to take the kiddos to school, I put my pants on over the shorts I slept in not realizing what I was doing until I catch myself tucking the shorts in because "something didn't feel right!" Looked over my sweater three times hanging on the coat rack (who would find it there?!) I mean I looked on the rack three times! How did I miss it? Sometimes I feel like I'm on the Truman Show, I start looking for hidden cameras! It's gonna be ona dos dayz....

Too funny! I guess two layers is better than going out WITHOUT pants though! ;)

I can add another: Came home from work to find paper towels in the fridge and milk on the counter.

Once found an empty can of peas in the dish washer. I blamed the cat.

C'mon now, let's  all chant the celiac motto, everybody:

 

I promise to perform only one task at a time, one task at a time, one task at a time........ :lol:

 

 

To all the newbies: It does get better, I promise. I can multi-task again. like a champ!

 

 Just ask the cat how she liked her nail clipping experience while

I made bread, vaccumed and cleaned the bathroom yesterday.

 

Worked out fine! Bread caved, never got to the vacuuming and the cat thoroughly enjoyed her dunk in the tub.  

 

As did I.

 

....and those scratches on my arms should heal in a few days.

I thought about bathing the cat but many people talked me out of it - a cat rescue lady, several vet techs, the 2 people at the boutique pet treat store...They all said to get a furminator.  Gracie loves it!  She was purring!  Then Cooper decided he wanted to be "raked" too.  He loved it!

 

A lot of my brain fog went away when I was no longer extremely anemic. 

 

We  blame stuff on the neighbor or his dog.  The things those 2 have done!

no, the" tub dunk" was not planned, K---I would never bathe a cat intentionally :blink: --I don't have a death wish! LOL

 

I was clipping her nails, the tub was soaking for a cleaning, and she wanted to see what was in the tub......and, well,.it got all crazy for a second.

:lol:  She loves to be brushed.

 

 

I agree--the anemia clears up, the brain fog goes. yaay!

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
