Hey! Juuude! Sounds like all good news. Yeah, things are changing as we are all getting older, and everyone around us seems to get younger. Why is that? Anyway...I believe we are soul sisters.....love of flowers and playing in the dirt, gardens....I hate cooking too! Probably the worst thing about this diet in the increase in kitchen activity! Too poor to hire someone else to do it :( Telehubby claims to like cooking......wish he'd do more of it. :D

Nik-a-nik....sorry to hear that you're pheeling so bad! Most of us in my family get migraines...no phun a'tall. Get better soon.

Guess it's the weekend...always seems a bit slower here then. Hope everybodees doin' all rite. Sloozan is cooking up a storm (no snoaugh please). Send some phood here....if you got some extra.

Manda-Ville.....sorry about your troubles. My heart goes out to you all.

Later.....Tea

Well, I is back. My ears are completely blocked and sore -- a rather tumultuous, bumpy, turbulence-ridden flight. No one cleaned up 'round here in me absence. I have all of my laundry AND all of theirs to do. :angry:

Man, I just wanna go back to where I was. The ocean, no little people to listen to, clean up or feed.... . . ...'twas heaven.. .. . <_<

It sounds like a downer weekend for a lot. Let me tell you about my train trip.

It started in Alliance, Ohio at 1 am. Couldn't sleep before cause I have sleeping problems (no biggy, light sleeper). Boarded an Amtrack train. Sat in the lounge car all night talking to my Grandson and smokin. God, the good old days when you could actually smoke in public, and thank God, they're gone. Pulled into Union Station in Chicago at 8 am. Spent the day doing tourist thing - Sears Tower, Art Insitute, ect. Boarded train at about 8 pm. The Cresent city. On our way to "The Big Easy".

The party started on the train. We ran into a group of travelors from Australia (they were wild and crazy guys) and a Rastifarian. We partied with them all night! Landed in NO the next morning, really tanked! Spent 2 days in NO.... Ate at Emerel's, I danced with a young punk guy, ate Alligator, and I GOT BEADS! And, a huge hangover!

Boarded train again. Goin to the Grand Canyon. After a train ride via El Paso. to Phoenix, we embarked at 3 am. The Australians were on the same train! Got a hotel room for 4 hours, took a shower and a nap, and headed back to the train station. There were the Aussies! They had spent the night in a bar and were heading for points west. They were all drunk! We got on a train to Flagstaff, and then a bus to the Grand Canyon.

It was AWSOME! Had a cabn, and spent 2 days there. Grandson got a hell of a sunburn on his earlobes. Grandaughter lost 12 lbs.

Back on the bus, then train to LA. Up the coast to San Fran, where both my son and sis live. Stayed first night in San Fran, and then spent 4 days with my sister in Pittsburg, Ca. In SF my Grandaughter turned 13. On Pier 54, I arranged a steel drum band to play happy b-day to her, and for my sis (who has a great voice) to sing "Bad Boys". One night, I made potatoe encrusted salmon and spinach salad at her house. We ate at a couple of great restuarants, and had a picnic of sandwiches and Corona on the Bay. We ate at an Ahgan restuarant in the " Haight"

Back on the train for a grueling 3-day trip back home. By this time, I was so sick of my granchilden that I never wanted to see them again! Got over that.

I'm ready for another road trip,

but this time, I won't take the Grandkids!

Nik......this does not sound good! :unsure:

Have you been to the doctor?

makes me nervous to cook........HATE IT.......... :ph34r:

I hate it too, Judee......but what can ya do? <_<

Hey, Amanda!!!! Were those soups condensed? That's my biggest problem with recipes that have cream soups.

No Wegman's here, though.

Souzun.......your trip sounds awesome!!! I absolutely hate car trips, but I think I would love a vacation on a train.

GAWD!.......I never get to go anywhere! :(

Hubby decided he wanted to be a pirate for Halloween, so we picked up some stuff at garage sales on Saturday. Such a gorgeous day! Went dancing today!

May I recommend bacon? :ph34r: :ph34r: :unsure::P

Of course! Bacon!!! :lol: Did I ever tell you this little story? When I was growing up, there were many of us. My mother was often concerned about feeding us all enough (btw, we all had all we needed....this is not a poor us story.....but then again, times were very different then). Anyway, many times we all got small portions of what ever we were having...especially things that we didn't get often....like BACON (!) So, when I was (so-called) grown up and on my own, I decided I could have as much as I wanted of anything I wanted (wonderful phreedom), and proceeded to buy, cook and eat an entire pound of bacon. Well! You may be able to imagine just how very sick all of this greasy bacon made me. Couldn't touch the stuff for years without feeling queazly. I am proud to admit that now I can eat bacon.....love bacon.....could be tempted to eat an entire pound in one sitting....except for my stupendous-iron-self-control (and the fact that I do not want to be sick from it ever, ever again). Love bacon.....right up there with coffee...it is.

How're y'all doin this loverly a.m.? Probably holidaying whilst some of us poor stiffs has to work!

Well, the last of my bacon went into my fish stew, so unless I do the bacon wrapped turkey again (last year's source), I'm done with it for many months to come.

Realized that I leave for Hawaii on Saturday and I have yet to figure out how I'm getting to the airport (or any other part of the equation, for that matter). Having fun is so much work...

Mornin', Psills!

So, when I was (so-called) grown up and on my own, I decided I could have as much as I wanted of anything I wanted (wonderful phreedom), and proceeded to buy, cook and eat an entire pound of bacon.

:lol: Love this. . . .. . ..planned, symbolic overindulgence, and with bacon, yet.... .. ..a pound of it.... . . ..icon8.gif, but :o and :lol: .... . . ....

I luuuuuurrrrrve bacon wif peanut butter. Actually, anything with PB.

There are only two things that do not go with this wondrous, dangerously addictive foodstuff: tomatoes and mushrooms.

I bet it would go very well on a pizza, or slathered on a prime rib roast... . . ..or mixed in with mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts.. . .. ....have tried none of these combos, yet, and tonight is Thanksgiving dinner 'round here... . .. .. .. ... :unsure:B)

Morning Sillies

The soups come in boxes like swanson broth- ready to serve. I bought the cream of mushroom but I haven't used it yet.

Yesterday I made the favorite chicken nuggets recipe from Chex.com. It came out very nice, first time I ever breaded chicken on my own. they were very tasty. the recipe wasn't under the gluten free I dont think but I just use my own ingredients.

Jess is there room for me on your voyage? I take up little room and I dont smell at all....that I admit or am aware of ;)

Happy Thanksgiving Canada Sillies!!!! Eat Lots for me!!!

Been busy busy busy here. I've been called to sub right and left at the preschool and at the elementary school (library) . . . pholks out cause kids are sick and then they get sick themselves. I got three requests for today!!

Had the in-laws over on Saturday. Made chicken and wild rice soup . . . FIL hated it :P He didn't say that but he only ate a couple of bites and then did a lot of talking to try and distract us. At least he didn't try to hide it under his napkin or flush it down the toilet.

Em . . . Smakl used to eat ham and peanut butter sandwiches . . . I'll pass.

Hmmmm....well, we rake up all the leaves out back and front, put the turkey in, slice up the BACK bacon, throw the beer in the fridge, wine on the top shelf, apologise to some people, mash the potatoes, set the table complete with some crumpled red maple leaves and pine cones strewn out as a centrepiece (from morning yard raking), apologise to a couple more people, start in on that big bottle o' chablis... . .. .

That's about where I am now.

AND I am very jetlagged.

What a woman.

Did someone say BACON? :lol: :lol: Ate my share of it yesterday- YUM!!!!!!!!

Viva Las vegas Velcro! I love it!!!!!!!!!!

Ranger Sleuzen- That party train trip sounds amazing!!!!!!!!!

Well, we had a busy weekend. Friends in with their two little girls from Seattle so we shwoed them the town which really just consisted of going to the county fair, eating like pigs (I found gluten-free french fries that were like really thick potato chips-want more NOW!), getting kissed by a goat :D Alas, the trampolines have shrunk and are for the chilluns only now so no trampoline jumping for me. Baby bunnies were seen, candy apples eaten. Very phun!

Their oldest daughter is hilarious. At the ripe old age of 5, it takes her awhile to "warm up" to people so she wouldn't talk to Kurt or me directly. At one point during dinner last night she said to her mom, "Could you tell those people you are talking to to pass the salt?" We all burst out laughing!

Where have all the psillies gone? It is very quiet here the last few days.

Hmm...this IS perturbingly disturbing.

Rachelle- I am sorry about your brother's MIL :( . Glad you had fun with your mom though.

Nik- Hope you feel better soon!

Jess- How is Lyle? I want your heated mattress pad <insert jealous face>

Em and Pieter- Happy Thanksgiving! can't wait for ours!

Wow!

I wanna Weggies in Canada!

And New England!!!!!!!!

Jyesss is going to HAWAII?? :o:):)

Wowie. Wanna come, more than I wanna Weggies down the street .. . ...

    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
       
    • Thank you. This is really helpful. I will call around next week.  I just want to heal! 
    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
