I'm bored...and restless and...lazy. I am almost done reading "Duma Key" by Sephen King, and I have to say it's pretty darn good. I have been reading his books since I was in the fourth grade and I have always considered him my favorite author, as pedestrian as it may sound. No other author can offer me the 'suspension of disbelief' factor that he does. He went off on a bad trip for a while--I actually thought his wife wrote one of his recent books for him. But he is still a genius--the man can't deny his inner vision.

wish I could write half as well... <_<

I was even a little creeped out last night. Had to stop reading and just go to bed, because every sound in the house was a creepy creeper creepin' up on me :o:unsure:

I am taking my girl to open swim at the city pool in a while, then home for showers, then off to the library for her prize (she joined the reading club and has been reading like crazy). Then, I think I'll make some shrimp scampy for dinner. Meanwhile I will do whatever I have to, to avoid going down stairs to the (creepy creeper) basement to exorcize demons clean the post painting/sump pump leaking mess :ph34r:

I remember when I read Stephen King's "Thinner", I literally couldn't put it down and read the whole book within 24 hours. The kids were younger, so I read all night till 5AM to finish it.

Are ya all dazzled by me pearly whites?

Jyaghnutt!!!!........We'll be at the pic-a-nic.....you?

I'm thinkin of trying to track down an old friend and invite her, too. She's recently diagnosed and I hear thru the grapevine that she's a mere skeleton cuz she doesn't know what to eat. She actually was Nathan's middle school science teacher AND a leukemia survivor.

Brian went to the prosthetist today. He made some adjustments and VOILA!......he can now walk without a cane! He also said that if Brian were to wear long pants, people wouldn't be able to tell he had a prosthetic. Fitting for the permanent leg is in 4 weeks :D .....He's hoping to go back to work even sooner. :rolleyes:

:lol::lol:

How about warts, moles and scars? Perhaps a package of them with adhesive backing, so you can accessorize your own limb. . . . ....

OMG.....this reminds me of a classic Stephen Wright line - - he claims to have been walking down a busy street in Chicago, and seeing a man sitting on a park bench with "an artificial leg, but a real foot". . ......

:huh:

Oh Sills, I made a yummy dinner. Sautee'd shrimp scampy (with butter and fresh lemon zest/juice and garlic and parsley and olive oil and white wine and fresh cracked pepper) with boiled sweet corn. I ate mine with the corn sliced off of the cob so it could roll around in the left over buttered herbs from the shrimp, gumbo-laya style. OMG it was to die for :P

Now, I need some advice...

which show would you see:

Tapdogs

Bowfire

or

Menepause the Musical

?????????????????????

I need to make a choice and use the tickets to the Macomb Center my friend gave me.

I'm seriously leaning towards Tapdogs.

JoDog's blood work all came back fine and dandy . . . now we just wait to see if it happens again. I looked up epilepsy in dogs and it says that if a dog has epilepsy, they usually have their first seizure sometime between 6 months and 5 years. JoDog will be turning 5 . . . any day now (as we could only guess how old she was when we got her) . . . so life back to normal as far as she's concern. Hope it stays that way.

      Yes, ATTITUDE, in all caps, and i am in the field of health care...!
    • TTg IAG > 100 but also Hasimoto's
      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...

      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.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
