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.

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

Gee whiz Lo! Hoping you can get some relief from some of this! The fun sometimes just never ends. Sorry to hear that the saga continues....but glad that you have some answers. Hang in there!

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.

I will have to look in to your suggestions. We lost a 17 yer old kitty during Hurricane Irene, a few months ago. I still miss her at the door waiting to get in. No more kitties in this house. No No.

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.....

At first I was certain that this article was from The Onion, a clever website that Jack visits regularly and from where he's constantly forwarding me news releases. Here is what he sent me last night:

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?

    • Hi.  I have been reading your post and thinking about how my pain was around diagnosis.  It was above the belly button, I think where you are describing.  At the time I assumed I had a stomach ulcer.   I had been taking Neurofen for an ear problem and assumed it was the NSAID that had caused my stomach ulcer (which I actually didn't have, when I had an endoscopy a few weeks later my stomach was looking great! My small intestine was not!).   Going back to the pain, it was a burning feeling.   My doctor prescribed Omeprazole but it didn't touch it.   In fact I ended up with bad D. which eventually lead to me having all the tests for Celiac Disease.   I still get that pain if I eat oats (pure oats) that are supposed to be OK for most Celiacs.     I get various pains in different places in my digestive tract from time to time, but that burning pain is something I won't forget. The other thing I had that you mention was that pain between the shoulder blades.  I had that - I felt almost like someone was pushing my shoulders down.  So odd. I get palpitations when I am anemic.    I hope you get some answers soon.  It is pretty tough having to keep going from one doctor to another, but sometimes it is the only way.   
    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
