Loey!!! You did not need that :o You must promise us you will not come up with any more of these things, especially the ones we can't pronounce :rolleyes: I hope they are taking good care of you.

The first treatment they try is a painful enema. If not, surgery. I'm still smiling though and feeling blessed to have all of my psillies in my life. Evidently everything I have is connected. They're all autoimmune and you're more susceptible (as we all know). I'm going back to my PCP in 45 minutes and then I'll know what the next step is. I've seen my PCP 3 times this week (as well as once a week for the past two weeks). Coincidentally I see my GI tomorrow (pre-scheduled 6 month checkup) so that's handy.

I need to go in my basement now and dig around my rewards from when I taught first grade. My PCP has had her adorable (and precocious kids with her the last three visits. The last time Clark was there with me the youngest one tried to get him to give him $50. He was jumping all over him. I know that Clark secretly enjoyed it.

One last happy note - I think my insurance got screwed up when I got on Disability. I no longer have a co-pay with my prescriptions. Now that put a big smile on my face. It's an enormous financial burden lifted. I just hop it isn't a mistake. I'd hate to have to pay it all back. Does anyone know if this is a part of disability? I'll be able to get medicare but not for another two months.

Miss and Love you all! wub.gifwub.gifwub.gif

Loey

P.S. I swear I'm not trying to make the Guinness Book of Records as the girl with the most autoimmune diseases. laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

thanks to you all for letting me Wine or Wodka or Wat-ever! Lol.....I never could drink....wish I could. I do plan on firing my Dr. office in total. They have been rude on a number of occaisions to top it all off. As soon as I find a decent replacement, and get a grip on this new information.

I have started physical therapy....working first on the neck pain/issues, before addressing the many other areas of pain. Seems I can't have anti-inflammatories or Nsaids...as they are triggers for the big D with the colitis. I've known for a long time now that I can't take them....they make me ill. (Duh). The therapist said that no wonder the other meds that the PA had me try didn't work......(Duh again). I can't wait to fire them and tell them why! I have some fun fanatasies about that....but I promise not to be "too" cruel and sarcastic. (Assume that the word "too" is a relative term).

Hugs to you all, and great health and happiness in the coming year!

The word "too" has an unlimited range; I think you should explore its upper end :D

So let me tell you how my day went. <_<

I got ready for work and decided to start my carto give it a headstart at warming up(it's in the driveway), then went in the house to grab my things, forgot there was something I needed to bring and went upstairs to get it. I walk out the front door and see my car backing out of the driveway. It's still dark so I can't see who's in my car.

I'm thinking...."I can't just stand here and watch my car get taken away!" So I run up and start banging on the hood screaming, "GET OUTTA MY CAR!!! GET OUTTA MY CAR!!!"....all the way out into the street.

Then he stomps on the gas and zooms down the street....still in reverse. So I'm standing in the middle of the street watching him and he stops,puts it in drive, and is coming back this way!

For one second I thought, "Maybe I should stand in front of him and make him stop!.....no wait, that only works in the movies." So he zooms past me, close enough for me to bang on the side of the car and scream at him again.

I watch him drive past and stop at the next stop sign and pick up somebody.

Now there's nothing to do but go back in the house.....only I'm locked out. He has my house key!!!! At least Brian is home....sleeping. He goes to work in the afternoon. So I have to bang on the door to wake him up and then he can hobble on his crutches to let me in.

So after calling the police, insurance, rental car, Brian takes me to work and stops at the hardware store on the way home to get new locks for the house.

But there's a happy ending. A few hours later the cops spot my car, give chase, and end up catching 2 guys. A third got away. And the car is fine...except it stinks of cigarette smoke <gag>

And by the way car thieves.......I have your earbuds....nyah, nyah!!!!! :lol:

Three good things:

New set of earbuds

You didn't have to find pencil and paper to write down the license number

They at least knew how to drive

oh, and another:

They didn't change the license plates :D

What a discombobulating way to start the day. Now you need two sets of keys for the car: one to warm it up with, one to lock and unlock the doors while doing so.

I could've done that but wasn't thinking. Hubby doesn't even want me doing that, though, cuz he's afraid they'll just break the window. I think we're going to look into the electronic car starter. If they don't have the key. the car will shut off as soon as they press the brake to shift out of park.

Febreeze does a good job on car odors. Also, supposedly, lots of newspaper and a closed car works. Must separate the pieces of newspaper and, for my van, I would need to steal a lot of paper from the neighbors. The paper is supposed to soak up the odor.

There are car detailed that can wash the inside & get smells out. We have 5 cars. I can't remember the plates. Should write them down.

Look for a source near you of a product called Nok-Out. It is more effective than Febreeze. It works on just about any odour of organic origin, including tobacco, but also skunk, urine, vomit, feces, sweat (gym bags), etc.

We sell it in the store, and use it ourselves. It is awesome.

Well, we could use a regular bottle of this in my household for yes, rank hockey/gym bags, but I am thinking more for the room-clearing wind that is regularly broken by DH.. . . ....he remains completely gluten-free but lactose intolerant and still eating some dairy. .. . .. . ..yup, I'm looking for Nok-Out.....

The cops never asked for my plate number. As long as you can remember your name and date of birth, they're good to go :) Aren't computers wonderful?

    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure how much fat I'm having, I will check. That could be contributing. Yup I do know about the link between Type 1 and celiac. But when it was first discovered my blood sugar was high, my insulin was tested and it was high...actually it was double the normal amount. C-peptide was tested too and I don't remember exactly but I think it was slightly high? If I had Type 1 or LADA, wouldn't my insulin be lower? It is strange though how I have none of the risk factors for insulin resistance and/or type 2... And in fact I had been on a super healthy whole food, "anti-candida" diet for several years before my blood sugar suddenly went really wacko!

    • Chipolte New Marinade
      I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      Is there anyone else "pre-celiac" and asymptomatic like me who has had long-term success without losing their mind and still enjoying eating out without feeling like you have to stay in a plastic bubble?  This site has been helpful to me these past months.   I don't have it "Yet" and I am scared.  Sorry this is long but I wanted to be thorough: Two years ago I started experiencing GERD (heart burn, pain under my left rib cage, and regurgitation).  After trying probiotics, kambucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar, aloe juice, eliminating chocolate, citrus, tomatoes, spices, cinnamon, mint, alcohol, not eating 3 hours before bed, I was no better. I got an endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The dr found gastritis and esophagitis.  No hernia, infection or ulcer.  He started me on PPI.  I got 99% relief.  After 6 months I decided to go off PPI.  After suffering for 3 months, I went back to dr and back on PPIs for a year.  Because I am young, 39, and the PPIs have side effects, he discussed surgery with me. I went to a specialist. All the tests showed my esophagus was normal but my lower esophageal sphincter was not closing properly.  I was a good candidate and decided on the MUSE, (Endoscopically stapling the esophagus to prevent reflux) When the specialist did his endoscopy (1 year after previous one and before I was on PPIs regularly)  he saw villi damage that looked like textbook Celiac.  HUH?  I don't have ANY symptoms.  No cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gas, discomfort, NOTHING.  He took biopsies and the results were "non-specific" perhaps "clinically latent celiac sprue" or a number of other things. So I took blood tests.  The celiac gene test was "susceptible" and I had "high" antibodies, but not positive.  Dr said go gluten-free to prevent  celiac. Did the PPIs cause the villi damage because I couldn't absorb the wheat properly and triggered celiac in me?  It sounds reasonable.   I wonder if now that I have had the MUSE and may be able to stop PPIs, will I be able to digest gluten better? Very interesting.  I plan to call a celiac specialist where I live to discuss this with him. I have not eaten gluten intentionally for 2.5 months now.  It did not help my GERD before the surgery.  Dr said they were unrelated anyway.  I am concerned about CC, breathing in, and accidental ingestion, but since I have no symptoms, I can never tell.  So I take glutenease when I eat out and glutamine powder to try to repair the damage.  How careful should I be since I don't have it "yet"? Amy's gluten-free frozen foods are great, and I read every label at Trader Joe's, eat off the gluten-free menu, corn tortillas @ Mexican, no soy sauce or imitation crab @ sushi, steamed veggies @ Chinese, & gluten-free pasta @ Italian. Member Lisa wrote, "Even though you eat as gluten free as possible, you probably consume close to that amount of gluten due to cross contamination in processed gluten free food and other exposures. ...Eating 100% gluten free is a total improbability. "
      Most people with Celiac can handle 20ppm.  So is that equivalent to breathing in flour?  Having a half a teaspoon of soy sauce by accident in Asian food?  I can live without bread and cookies, but gluten is IN  so many things. Some on this site with Celiac have separate toasters, don't eat out, and don't walk into bakeries while there are others that eat out and eat fries made in shared oil at BK.  Even I haven't done that.  Isn't it dangerous? Thank you for you help!!
    • Pins And Needles
      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.
