Looking For Karen From Braintalk
0

6 posts in this topic

Sorry to intrude like this...but the Braintalk Gluten Sensitivity/Celiac Disease forum crashed about a month ago and has not returned, and unfortunately some of us have lost touch! I suspect many are scattered among the various other Celiac Forums. I am looking for Karen (founder of MADD (not mothers against drunk drivers)), and mother of Ted. If anyone knows where Karen is, could you please let her know I am looking for her. She can contact me through http://jccglutenfree.googlepages.com/ .

I'd love to hear from other displaced Braintalkers, too!

Thanks,

Cara (jcc)

Hello! I was a brain talker too. I miss the forum so much! Has anyone heard any updates from the admins?

So sad to think the wonderful Gluten File is gone!

Hi Cara and Nancy, I was on BT to and I really miss it, is there any chance that it will ever come back?

Hi Nancy!

Someone suggested that I put The Gluten File out on a website, so I did. It is not the same, though, because without the forum to go with it...well, its just not the same! It is also missing all the great discussion threads that were attached to each section. But, at least, for those interested in this sort of information..it is still there. Thank goodness a couple of people suggested I make a back up copy a couple of years ago. My backup was from a year ago, so it may be missing a few things.

As far as I know, nobody has heard anything from John Lester about getting the board back up. There are murmurs from other BTers (gluten forum and others) about setting up a new forum. If there ever is another site that comes up I will certainly include it in the Favorite Links section of The Gluten File...so book mark the site...and check back periodically. I don't think it would happen before October.

Hi Turner~

People are losing hope that it will come back. There have been no updates, which to me, is a bad sign. Still, there are so many displaced people...on our board, and also the others like MS, Chronic Pain, PN, Child Neurology, Epilepsy, Spinal Disorders, and more. As I just mentioned, there are a few murmers from some longstanding BTers about starting up a new board. So far just talk, but stay tuned. I would definately put it somewhere in TGF if something opens up, so keep an eye out. Again, I don't think it would be anytime before October.

I'm really missing it too. The people :).

Hi Nancy!

Someone suggested I put The Gluten File out as on a website, so I did. It is not the same, though, because without the forum to go with it...well, its just not the same!

It sure will be a sorry day if Bt never comes back, there were so many people on there that were getting help and information. I know there is no other site like it, still keeping my fingers crossed that it will come back. Patricia

Wow! That's excellent you made a backup of it. And you did such a beautiful job. It really is beautifully formated. I just read your story about the gluten sensitivity self-diagnosis, it was wonderful!

    • i hope you tipped that waitress well????
    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
