Good Monday mornign sills........though a sad one. :(

100 degrees here today....five better than yesterday. <_< Alas, am possibly heading to foothills today to help feed, as mentioned, about 75 phyrephighters. Now, normally this would sound titillating but.....today, will be about 93 degrees up there :angry: and two,

I'm an old lady now and most of these guys would be just chillens', I'm thinking :lol:

plus I have to take all my own food, AND I'm not camping there overnight so - a drive home late at night, which means little to no wine with the boys around the campfire. :lol:

decisions, decisions.

Emmel, did we come up with costumes yet fer yer scary party?

...and WIH??? was going to list MORE tatt on Ebay but paypal tells me I must 'verify my account' before selling 'owt else

Bev is in Massachusetts, so it is the same time for her as it is for you.

I am happy with who I am and want only to be the person my daughter believes me to be :)

Thank goodness I don't have that to live up to; hard enough being the person I believes me to be :huh:

We've run into a huge snag wif the house we're planning to have built :angry:

And, pray tell, when has there evah been a house built that hasn't run into humongous snags?? Coulda told you NOT TO DO THIS (if you had only asked). Talk about major aggravations and marriage breakupstressors--this has to rank right up there, maybe at the top. Two years from now you will look back and laff (if yer lucky). Of course you will probably also have a very nice house (I am sure you will take special care with air conditioning and mold reductionhumidity control :D

Daggone right! I used to be a people-pleasin' doormat.

Now that sounds about as true as a moon made out of cheese.

Suppose I'd have to be the one gagging and barphing from the sidelines to get their attention

Somehow or other that never quite made it onto my list of attention-getting devices :lol: Very cute video though. That barphin' cat was one of mine, I'm sure. She was an expert! Didna know they took lessons in kitteh school.

Well, I thinks I has avoided the dreadful H place with the IV line :) , because my cellulitis has bowed to the onslaught of double doses of flucoxacillin (and so has me stomach , I might add) Take on an empty stomach :huh: :huh: indeed.

Roll on June, because they are predicting more snow within sight of our house today; t'is becoming a very early wintah. And cold!!! Have to go bake some yeast-free bread because Dh has concluded his sinus problems are related to candida and is going on anti-candida foods. He's eaten up all my pineapple already. :( Don't know what that has to do with it, but he assures me it is recommended. Have to watch what I say now because I keep finding him reading celiac.com when I'm not looking.

nighty-night, Tea... :wub:

Well OMG, it's 8:30 and look who's already home. :lol:

My boss, I have figured out, always makes things sound WAY more exciting and fabulous than they really are. :huh:

Um......I drove 90 minutes to get up there (no big deal but the last 30 are on a VERY windy, narrow road - paved, thank God) and........we..........sat................around...........and that's it.

:blink:

I didn't even CARE about the stupid firemen.....there were a smattering of cute ones, but I could hardly be bothered (the cute ones were VERY young, in fact nearly ALL were very young, the old ones looked fat and sloppy - I don't think firemen are as hot as they used to be? :huh: it's just the ones in movies and on TV that are hot <_< )

It was VERY hot, humid, and......I got so antsy, crazed with boredom and discomfort (and all the flies) and had to leave. They were quite puzzled as to why I'd only stay - less than six hours? - but I just HAD to get out of there, can't even EXPLAIN it. But my boss was in the cook trailer the entire time (only room for one in there, and HOT AS BLAZES, his comrade was cooking the civkebs on the grill, the boys were sitting around just staring vacantly, and I just

COULD NAE TAKE IT - gahhhhhhhhhhhhh!! :blink:

So driving down the mountain I decided that I just have a really, really low tolerance now - unlike the past - for pain, discomfort, and misery. I want cool cotton sheets, air conditioning, and a shower :lol:

Not to mention good conversation, some yummy g f snacks, decent wine, a lounge chair, and cool breezes when I camp.

Would be nice to have me sills there. Can you imagine? :rolleyes:

very cranky. Off to bed!!!

oh - shroomie!! meant to comment on yer post - where is it??? but very funny, the marriage-wrecking house-building part :o:lol:

Good morning, Psills!

Sooozle's Project Phireman was quite disappointing. .. ...I was hoping for a great, rustic, sublime, Steinbeck-ian tale. .. .....instead it was rather Hemingway-ish. ...

Alighted at the scene. . . . ...served the food, reclined and pondered. Descended the mount.

:rolleyes:

And no DH for Mini-minimom! 'Tis fab. But then, what in hell IS it? :huh:

sat in my folding camp chair, stared at my young miscreant colleagues, swattted flies. Surveyed sweltering kitchen trailer and made my egress.

:huh:

<I don't know which author that would be - it's just Soozle on a tired morning :lol: >

dang!! so quiet in here!!!!!!!!!! :blink:

I awake to one post from em and nuttin' else?

WHERE IS EVERYONE??????

:huh:

gotta go kick Sophie's teacher's ass today. Can't wait. this master teacher is Satan himself.........such a semester she's had. Horrible, miserable, mean-spirited black-souled, sexually harassing, verbally abusive, alcoholic man. It actually made her physically ill, being around him every day - increasingly sick and miserable until she blacked out last week with searing chest pain as she could not describe, and ambulance was called. Did I tell you guys this already?

so - her gallbladder and giant gallstones were removed Friday....she is still in pain with some pyloric ulcer? 'tis EGREGIOUS. :angry:

so - get this - this EEEEEEEEEVILLLLE man (has a vendetta against her due to her WONDERFUL father and requested her as his student teacher <_< ) has now asked that she do lesson plans for the entire rest of the school year (almost a month). Um, the ba$tard's been teaching for 25 years, I'm SURE he doesn't need them. :angry:

So, we're gonig to take in what work she does have (she can nae lift it all) and *I* am going to put my foot down right then and there. *moo hoo ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!*

Should I take the Skull Cracker for extra affect?????

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I called this doctor's office again to inquire if my medical records have been corrected. When I called to amend my records because there was inaccurate information, the staff member told me that I need to write my complaint in email to doctor. So, that's  what I did. The doctor wrote things I said that I didn't say, which changed the meaning of what I said so I wanted to correct that. I talked to a different staff member today. Her tone of voice is irritaing because it's condescending and argumentative like she refuses to help you. Todays she said the doctor wasn't going to commit fraud by writing something I tell her to write. I don't feel irate when I talk to the other staff member who answers the phone. Anyway, this staff member said she printed my email for the doctor to read  and she'll reply when she wants to reply (never). I said that it's not the doctor's choice to choose whether or not to correct inaccurate information in medical records. I said I think by law, it must be done so if the doctor continues to ignore my request to correct inaccurate information, then I should probably file a medical complaint somewhere. Finally, the doctor called me back. She asked what was inaccurate when I said I wanted to correct the incorrect information. Then, I asked if she read my email. She said she did not have time to read patient STORIES. I said a good doctor would make the time to read a request to correct inaccurate information in a patient's medical record. Then, she said I'm sick to keep writing letters to her. I said I only wrote one emailto her and it was because a staff member said that is how to amend the inaccurate information. She added that if I really had physical symptoms, I would not have been able to get a college degree or write letters to her. Although I explained to her during my consult that I took online classes and did homework in bed with lots of breaks, she thinks I must be pretending to have symptoms. I also explained during my consult that half of my dizziness and migraines are gone since being on a gluten-free diet. Yes, this makes sense why her office makes me feel so irate! I ended the call by asking if she was going to correct the inaccurate in my medical redords. She kept rambling on how only sick people keep writing letters to doctor's letters. Again, I told her I only wrtote one email to her and thaty's because her staff member told me to correct inaccurate information in record. The staff member recommended this instead of filling out a record amendment form, which I don't think they have.  Since my neurologist referred me to her when I inquired about help for my memory problems, I'm afraid she will tell him negative things about me. Her office is just across the hall from his. Doctors are more likely to take the word of another doctor over a patient. In contrast to this doctro, my neurologist is a real competent doctor. Do you ever think that sometimes doctors are crazy, but they get away with making others think it's the patient who is crazy because they feel more powerful? This doctor is a neuropsychiatrist. I will never see a neuropsychiatrist again due to this bad experience.  My appointment with the neurologist is in another week. I don't know if I should briefly mention my bad experience with this doctor to him so he won't believe her if she tells him that I am faking my symptoms. It would be like I was faking my whole life if I was faking my symptoms. Maybe I could say something like the brain testing wasn't very helpful with that doctor since she assumed my symptoms were all in my head since I would have never been able to graduate from high school or get a college degree if I was sick. I also told her during my consult that I received average grades in high school because I often went straight to bed after school not having chance to do homework.     It
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Hello to all -this is my first entry! I am checking with everyone to see if they have been having a reaction to the Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin (chocolate) shake mix after drinking it.  When you read the label on the container, it states that it has Oat Fiber in it -but then reading online through their website it shows the ingredients contain "wheat products".  I don't have severe Celiacs but now that I have been gluten-free for 7 years, I notice when things aren't right.  I started (my wife starting giving to me) the Nature's Bounty mix around 4 months ago -but have only recently (within the last month) been experiencing stomach pains after drinking (pretty much immediately -before I am even done with it). Does anyone else have this issue?  Does anyone know specifically if it is NOT gluten-free?  It does not state so on the container or on their website. Thank you for any input you can provide. Pete
    • Gluten-Free Safety Starts Here
      How many of us have suffered from cross contamination? Most celiacs have felt the side effects of getting gluten in their food. If it is not your own kitchen, utensils, pots or pans it can be a bit nerve racking. It is not only extremely unpleasant, but unhealthy to our intestines as well. It can cause damage that can be very detrimental in the long run. View the full article
    • Help!! Testing 3 1/2 year old
      Your son is very young and it is extremely difficult most times to diagnose a young child.  Many do not develop enough damage to trip a blood test for conclusive results until more time has gone by and more damage occurs....which you want to try and avoid.  I would definitely get a second opinion and maybe even schedule an endo.
      If those come back inconclusive, then I would do a strict dietary trial to see if his symptoms get better or go away.  Include the gene testing also for purposes of ruling the genetics for it out. What caught my attention were his symptoms.  Those are very specific to Celiac, or can be.  Mouth sores, abdominal complaints and skin rashes.  I had canker sores as a kid and stomach issues but no one was looking for Celiac back then and there were no blood tests. So....I ended up going to the age of 46 before I was diagnosed with Celiac, not to mention the 3 other AI diseases I acquired along the way. That should not happen to anyone. If his symptoms go away or improve greatly, then document this and take it back to a doctor for his record. The diet is not hard to do but it is not convenient. I would say a dietary trial as a last resort is important because undiagnosed Celiac can really take it's toll on people and diagnosing or ruling it out in kids can be especially challenging.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
