as i am smugly thinking:

.  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

 

...methinks we really should be quite fit from all this "second tripping we do"...

I coach my boys soccer team and I am constantly mixing up the kids names. It's gotten to the point where they don't respond immediately when I call out instructions because they are waiting to see how I'll correct myself first.

My Dad (who surely had this, too) used to run the list of all our names before he got to the one he meant. He'd start with my mom's name, then my sister's, then mine then my niece's....it was funny back then, but at least now we know why he was doing it. 

We still do it with each other just for funzies in his memory.  :D

My latest repeated FUBAR was leaving the tea kettle on and going to bed.  Fortunately it almost always had enough water in it that it didn't go dry by morning.  Maybe once or twice tho.  I used to have dyslexia and mix up  numbers fairly often.  But not much problem with that now.

 

The door frame attacks are not something they warn us about in safety classes.  Those things are viscous! :)

I have a heavy duty kettle that has survived a boil off a few times... it's a bit discoloured now... has character.

I once fell asleep making beef stew. Fortunately it was in a very resilient non-stick pan that survived the ordeal. The stew on the other hand... not so much.

You guys must sleep like the dead to not hear a whistling tea kettle squealing like that.... Lucky dogs!

Nah, I managed to boil my kettles off while I was up and about in the house, walking by it repeatedly. It has no whistle, just lots of steam.  LOL

well, that makes more sense if there is no whistle, but your wallpaper may have peeled a bit and you probably got a nice facial and hair curl out of that

misty air? :lol:

Oh no, it would whistle like a wolf if I had the flame up high.  But I always keep it very low, so no whistling.  I don't mind the tea water taking a little longer to get hot.  If it takes awhile that's fine.  I usually keep it half on and half off the burner so it warms up even slower.

 

The bear was fun.  But who can resist a Lady with a feather?

My bunny is up all night, every night, playing. On top of that my husband sounds like an entire army of chainsaw murderers when he sleeps. It is a miracle that with my earplugs I can even hear an alarm go off in the mornings. Sleeping with them takes some getting used to, but it sure beats going to jail for murdering your husband because you can't sleep. :lol:

Not knowing what a grunion is until I read further along in your post, I had

at first assumed it to be something local to you like Bigfoot or the chupa

cabra, and was very interested to see what photos you came up with!

they are little silver fish that come up on the beach to lay their eggs...sad to say we didn't see one and we checked from the tip of La Jolla to the Jetty in South Mission Beach -- (pacific beach in san diego) -- no little silver fish..hoping they choose tonight...but sadly I'll be camping in the local mountains so that I can spend tomorrow watching pro bike riders pedal up the mountainside.

 

going to turn in a couple pictures of me and beautiful empty beaches taken at 1230 and 230am pt -- along with an essay on reasons why the grunion no longer run...i'll get a couple points and that is all i need as long as i ace the final :)

 

will try to post one of the photos of me flipping off my professor with a big smile when i get back from camping!

 got this today in an email. Maybe it isn't a celiac thing after all. :lol: maybe it's just us.

 

 

 

A.A.A.D.D.- KNOW THE SYMPTOMS!
Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.

Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. 

This is how it manifests: 

I decide to water my garden. 
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
 
I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. 

As I start toward the garage, 
I notice mail on the porch table that 
I brought up from the mail box earlier. 

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. 

I lay my car keys on the table,
 
Put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,
And notice that the can is full. 

So, I decide to put the bills back 
On the table and take out the garbage first... 

But then I think, 
Since I'm going to be near the mailbox 
When I take out the garbage anyway, 
I may as well pay the bills first. 

I take my check book off the table, 
And see that there is only one check left. 
My extra checks are in my desk in the study,
 
So I go inside the house to my desk where 
I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking
. 

I'm going to look for my checks, 
But first I need to push the Pepsi aside 
So that I don't accidentally knock it over. 

The Pepsi is getting warm, 
And I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. 

As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi, 
A vase of flowers on the counter 
Catches my eye--they need water. 

I put the Pepsi on the counter and 
Discover my reading glasses that 
I've been searching for all morning. 
I decide I better put them back on my desk, 
But first I'm going to water the flowers. 

I set the glasses back down on the counter ,
 
Fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. 
Someone left it on the kitchen table. 

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV,
I'll be looking for the remote, 
But I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, 
So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, 
But first I'll water the flowers. 

I pour some water in the flowers, 
But quite a bit of it spills on the floor. 

So, I set the remote back on the table, 
Get some towels and wipe up the spill. 

Then, I head down the hall trying to 
Remember what I was planning to do.
 

At the end of the day:
 
The car isn't washed, 
The bills aren't paid, 
There is a warm can of 
Pepsi sitting on the counter, 
The flowers don't have enough water, 
There is still only 1 check in my check book, 
I can't find the remote, 
I can't find my glasses, 
And I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
 
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,
 
I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day, 
And I'm really tired. 

I realize this is a serious problem, 
And I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.... 

Do me a favor. 
Forward this message to everyone you know, 
Because I don't remember who I've sent it to. 

Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!
P.S. I don't remember who sent it to me, so if it was you, I'm sorry

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
