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?

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • 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.
