Keepin' me outta the wine... . . ...all I can say is, the raincheck better be soon.... :rolleyes::ph34r:

Since the big forum re-vamp, I have found the pages on here taking a VERY long time to load..... .. . .and it ain't my computer, as other sites I can zip through. Anyone else finding this?

I also notice that threads on the topics page can be labelled "HOT". Interestingly, Psillyville is always HOT, it seems. But then, that's no surprise....jus' lookit the regular contributors.....

Mine takes longer to load too, Em. I use Firefox, tried Chrome but that didn't help.

Just voted--didn't take long--only one lady ahead of me. Mark went before work, and had a short wait.

We voted by mail. You can also vote for several weeks a head of time at many locations. Love it! Friend said she dropped a kid at high school about 8 and then voted. 45 minutes.

I am predicting "to close to call" to night, and a long drawn out post election battle. Have been predicting that for months now. Time to test my prediction i guess. ;)

Shoulda met up for a post-election party/sleepover.

Only if Ohio is an issue, right? If one person wins enough e-votes without needing another state or two, then provisional/mail in/reissue etc ballots are less important.

My prediciton?

I predict I'm gonna have to put the down comforter on the bed tonight. Seems that the weather is finally getting cold. It's been in the high fifties here. Haven't turned the heat on in more than a week.

Better stock up on gluten-free provisions. I don't think Zombies like to eat gluten free brains!

Excellant idea!

I've had the comforter on the past 2 weeks. Our bedroom is over the garage--coldest room in the house even with the heat on.

I put the heated mattress pad on Sunday when I changed the sheets but I haven't turned it on. I still have my summer bedpread on, although I have an extra blankie across my feet. The other night I had the pirate on one side and the cats on the other. Was so warm I had to fling all the covers (and cats) off.

I only have to share with Tyler and Mark but that lil' kitty takes up as much room as a small person the way he sprawls out. I wake up contorted between the two of them. :rolleyes:

Yep . . . I agree. Just got back . . . no line as I predicted even though I was a bit early. Now I've got an "I Voted" sticker . . . where do I go for the free stuff?

I'm sure the pirate appreciated not being flung with the kittehs.

Yesterday Ohio Gov Kasich was practically already apologizing for how long it'll take them to count it up, what w/ all the new voter suppression attempts expected to result in record #s of provisional ballots.

Rock the Vote, stubborn, committed attempted-suppressees!!

(I'm leaning towards "supressee" actually being an actual word, btw)

Maybe we can get extra lucky & not have to care about Ohio's electoral votes. What can I say - I'm a dreamer. :wacko:

Can't remember who said it and it takes so freakin' long for the pages to reload . . . but whoever said that the forum is slower than preupdate needs to report it in the "bugs" thread in the technical forum. You'll see there are plenty of people already saying that . . . just need to add to the list.

I do want to point out that the "bugs" in THAT thread have nothing to do with Shadow's bugs in THIS thread . . . hopefully.

    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
    • Sigh. I totally do love the packs of stretch pants at Costco though...
    • hey, i'm vegetarian and gluten free as well
      have you tried making any recipes with cashew nuts like cashew cheese or pasta sauce? they're really good, easy to make and an excellent way to get more protein/iron
      i can send you some of the easy recipes if you like  
    • Right, fistulas or fissures are usually associated with Crohns, but not celiac.  It is not impossible to have both conditions though.
    • Bravo for being strong enough to bring this topic up.  Depression, anxiety, and other mental or neurological issues are common in celiacs and those with NCGI.  Science is finally catching up to what many of us have already known to be true.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641836/ I have suffered from anxiety and still have some neuropathies.  At first I blamed menopause (that alone can make you crazy), but my symptoms tend kick in after a Gluten exposure and improve as I heal.   You are not crazy!  Gluten can cause so many problems.  What other disease requires that the patient be in charge of "medicating" and caring for themselves?  Most of us after a diagnosis get a "Well, just avoid gluten.  Lucky you that there are so many restaurants that offer a gluten free menu!", speech from our doctors.  We never get time off from thinking about food, our next meal and will it be safe?  Our relationship with food changes dramatically and it can be exhausting.   We do need more resources and support from medical, but for now, at least this forum is helpful!
