He really liked Carla's naked/6 pack idea too, but then he said it would have to be wine or sumpin' since I can't drink beer.

And I actually got dinner last night. :rolleyes:

Em, did not know you are a career counselor. I believe that when my 14 yr old sees this, he will have found his career. Snow shoes, bear cubs, wolves, elk......it's perfect!

Well, of course it would be gluten-free beer!!!

So what was for dinner? Can he cook, too?

Grilled steak and red potatoes, salad, and scotch.

It was a great dinner, but I seemed to have a bit of a headache this morning. Must be the potatoes.

Loved the bear cubs.

Can't you have potatoes? Or do you think he used something he shouldn't have?

Sounds delicious. I'm anemic right now, I could use a steak, but instead I'm making chili .....

Either that, or lack of sleep.

Lack of sleep? Oh, just because you are in bed does not mean you are asleep, I guess. ;)

If a 9.0 magnitude quake hits in Oregon, Rachelle's home may well suddenly have a beach front on the Pacific Ocean. Assuming the tsunami does not wipe it out. :huh:

:unsure: <skeert>

I'm 30 blocks from the river, quite uphill.... But the bridges would no doubt be wiped out for sure and since I live right across the bridge on the WA side, I cannae be at work when this happens! Must be close to my beh-beh's!!!

Jeeze, then to think of all the volcanos in this area, dormant or not, a josteling like that would likely shake 'em all alive :blink:

I got a ton of groceries yesterday ;)

mmmmmmm

first time was not a fluke.....

:lol::lol::lol:

Either that, or lack of sleep.

Or the constant josteling..... :ph34r::lol:

Me Psillies- I have missed you all! I have been following along on Gmail but haven't pooped in cause I'm teaching 2 online classes. Spending too much time on the computer. I broke the last one and had to get a new one!

All I know is good news- Geoss's blue-eyed love muffin. Me likey. :wub: :wub: :wub:

Is everyone else OK? Good? Great? Please say yes!

Here's my excuses: teaching 2 classes, looking for a house, uhm.....there's an early N'oreaster here (usually a winter snow storm)and it is pouring rain and howling wind.

I have been thinking of you all a lot lately. Last weekend I went to the county fair and as all you long-standing members of the thread will remember, this was the scene of the cosmo-drinking, trampoline jumping crime. Fond memories :D Twas about the time Richard's, our Founding Father, daughter was winging off the chandeliers. That was 4 YEARS AGO!

Just wanted to poop in and say you guys are always with me too!

I'm happy that I've known you all for that long. Funny that even the newest people could, with several cocktails, start at the beginning and be entirely caught up on the relationship. :)

Bev's fairs are much more exciting than ours!

Boys are home from school. The teachers need a break from them. They will be off Friday in 2 weeks, also.

So here's a question I have been wondering about: what happened to the guy who started this psilly thread?

    • 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!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
