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! :)

That bear waves back better than my stubborn kids did when they were toddlers.  ;)  LOL

 

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!

 

If  a guy sneezes 3 miles away, I am wide awake. :lol:

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:

I cracked the first egg into the pan and threw the shell into the garbage, and the second egg

got cracked into the garbage and the shell thrown into the pan. Yeah, he looked at me funny

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

    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.    
    • Thanks for the replies so far everyone, much appreciated Great, another doctor gets it wrong, how many more times can they make a mess of this diagnosis process?! Bloating had gone down a bit in these first few days of cutting the gluten so I guess expect that to come back. It's one way to have a farewell tour of the gluten foods I guess - if a little or a lot makes no difference may as well go all-in... The doctors didn't diagnose this at all, Google did. If I trusted in the health professionals I'd be blaming the symptoms all on stress and having counselling for it whilst the fire raged on inside me due to a clinical condition they'd missed. Just glad one of doctors agreed to run the test on second time of asking to keep me quiet as much as anything. Believe me I've read that newbie thread multiple times, as well as numerous others around the web. Been doing nothing but since Tuesday when the blood test results came back and each time I go into the comments sections a little bit more of me gives up inside. Seems so many don't ever heal and so many associated complications too. The reality looks bleak apart from a lucky few it seems. In the nicest possible way the vegetarian choice is non-negotiable, it's a core part of what I believe and the thought of eating any form of animal \ fish flesh would make me physically sick (sorry meat eaters) so will have to find some way around it, how I don't know yet. Perhaps lots of this... http://www.pulsin.co.uk/pea-protein-isolate.html The cooking bit is a concern as it's something none of us do well at home, adds to the feeling of being completely lost right now. I kick myself for the decision that lead to the stress as I could've avoided all this. The only thing I can cling onto there is that I was having some pains in the side before that time which I blamed on a muscle strain... maybe that was the early stages, in which case I could feel a bit better knowing it had just come on gradually. With the biopsy and gluten from what I read the villi take a long time to heal up so they'd still see that. With the blood test result as definitive as it was surely the disease is pretty much confirmed? How can it heal enough for non eating gluten to throw a biopsy result yet on the flip side take over a year to heal (that sounds like the best case scenario time-wise from what I've read). Not suggesting anyone is wrong for one second but need to understand how that works with what's going on inside to make any sense of this situation.
