Mushroom (Neroli) Memorial Thread
0

66 posts in this topic

Irish kindly told me about this dreadful news when we were in Croatia. Talk about shocking and so very sad. She leaves a void and will dearly be missed by so many who cherished her. She was so helpful and kind and witty; yet she told it straight when necessary. I appreciate that. I bet she touched more lives than she realized.

Words cannot adequately describe how I sympathize with Shroomie's family. Typing this just seems so wrong. I hardly even know what to say. Take comfort with good memories. Hold them close to your hearts.

I was wondering if anyone (mods?) has Neroli's address and would be willing to pm it to me? I'd like to send her husband a card with a short note telling him how she helped me and my family with our health issues and what a difference she made in our lives... even from so far away.

I'd be happy to. Give me a few minutes to get to my address book:)

Did you get it to Nicole?

 

a few days ago there was a mushroom shoot in my grocery bag tomatoes -- got giggled at by someone whom has mushrooms everywhere this time of year -- but they are rare in my neck of the desert

 

then yesterday I was watching the movie 'Epic' in 3D with the son -- in one scene the forest magically comes back to life and one of the first images is shrooms popping up that looked very much like Shroomie's Avitar -- jeez her spirit is just as strong as her personality -- miss you Shroom-ster.

Oh my goodness, I just found this thread. How sad and shocking... mushroom was SO very helpful when I first landed here, and well, always, really.

 

That's a really beautiful poem, IH.

I read it at both my Dad's service and a good friend's memorial service and I should have given the credit to the author.

 

I first heard it on television and looked it up because I found it to be quite beautiful and apropos for someone who is a" force of nature" like Neroli. :)

 

It is adapted (rather liberally) from A Parable of Immortality, by Henry Van Dyke..

My husband and I lost a lifelong friend on the same day as Neroli -- yep it was one very tough day for us.  Yesterday we attended a huge memorial celebration for our friend followed by a paddle out at the beach we all grew up on.  Was privately wishing I could have attended my other friend's memorial -- been able to meet her family and friends and let them all know how very much she is missed.

 

So from my crew to hers...here is the send off we gave our San Diego Friend -- Farewell Neroli :)

That's very beautiful, Lisa. I'm so sorry about your friend.

In an unfortunate coincidence, directly before opening the email from Shroomie's husband informing me of her passing, I learned that a friend of my husband and I had also passed that morning. He had been fighting colon cancer and doing well, so this was for the most part unexpected.

Right back at you Patti -- sorry for your additional loss this past few weeks :wub:

Umm.....it's me again.... :rolleyes:

 

It's so great to celebrate a life, rather than the loss.  Time will heal and the memories will eventually find a smile.

 

(is everything spelled correctly, or she will find me :o:rolleyes: )

Exactly right....God has scooped up one of the best.

Through tears I type...Shroomie you will not be forgotten - by me - or by countless people that you graciously advised with accurate along with sensible words...each and every day that you were able to do so.

Often late in the evening we would be the only mods online and would tag team --- I have missed you each time you've been ill...but firmly believed you could beat anything in your path....we joke about super powers...but I was certain you actually possessed them.

Rest in peace my dear friend...I will miss you always..."my Lectin Cuz"

My prayer today is for Neroli's husband, family and friends that they will find peace and that Shroomie has left a bit of her strength and determination behind to help them through the days to come.

 

It's been a year....has been another tough one for me with this silly health puzzle that keeps me searching for answers. 

 

You remain a strong presence in my thoughts -- pushing me to live strong and help those that are looking for answers that we may have already found.

 

Miss you, my friend :)

Truly one of a kind:). I came across her name recently in my address book while looking for someone else. Made me smile.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
