I had trouble remembering my own birthday when I was a kid. Not too big

on dates and anniversaries and the like, so it's nice that there are so many

internet and computer and phone things that remind you!

Alright guys i have a major delima......

So wasp #5 showed up whilst i was in the bathroom. I quickly shut the door and went to find something to clean it with. It was above my head and all i had was shower cleaner (works rather well for disabling them). I sprayed, it fell down, and i squished. But i failed to take into account all of my stuff on teh counter.

My retainer case (with said retainer in it) was sittng atop of a major spray doused area. I'm pretty sure none got in however, when i went to check there is a major possibility that it did.

How do i clean it so that it goes away? :( Right now its sitting in some hydrogen peroxide. I need my retainer and i can't afford to replace it.

I don't know, i think part of it is because of the warm/cold weather thing thats been going on. Then others in the building leaving the doors/windows open. I've contacted housing and thats the reason they gave me.

I'll do that after the peroxide. My mom said to just rinse it off really good, but i'd rather be on the safer side.

Wolfie- give it a good rinse with running water then a good soak. It will be fine. It didn't have the stuff on it for more than a few minutes.

Okay :)

I tried the viniger and baking soda, that was a fun experiment :lol: Right now the retainer is soaking in some water. I've got to go clean the case. I think with that one i can get away with some dishsoap on it.

Wow, you are way cooler than I would be!! That's at least flowers, maybe jewelry in my book. Or a book of course.

Very sweet though :)

Hope you had a lovely birthday. Good film?

I've always told Superman he didn't have to get me anything for my BD or Anniversary. He does so much for me year round. He'll usually get me a card and once in a while (when we have $ he'll knock my socks off (like the Christmas that he got me a gorgeous platinum, dark gold and light gold wedding ring and earring set covered in diamonds- I got him sweat pants that year). It's really important to me that I throw him a birthday party for his 1/2 a century birthday because last year when I was delirious I did't even remember his birthday - 1st time in 23 years I forgot). I have girlfriends that tell their BF's or DH's that they don't care about their special days but it's really a trap. I have no respect for them. I think your birthday call was very sweet and he didn't have to tell you it took fb to remind him. Anyway wishing you a HEALTHY year!!

Love,

Loey

So, I am getting close to 6,000 posts (this should be 5,998). Scott is a post ahead of me when I last checked.

Bad karma is already coming my way!

I drive a 12-year-old Toyota 4Runner. The hand brake cable is sticking. I use the hand brake all the time, because I shift for myself (manual transmission). 2000 was the last model year that you could get a 4Runner with a stick shift in North America. :(

We were going to bake pizza crusts Saturday, but the oven gave off a smell of burnt plastic and then died. Need to place a service call in the morning. The stove is an antique--we may have to finally consider replacing it.

And, as if we did not need more, the drain from the washing machine is backing up. I have checked the trap in the sink, and it is clear, so the problem is downstream from there. Need to call a plumber, too.

Got some laughs from watching Blazing Saddles on DVD this evening. Now to bed.

On the upside, when the oven catches fire you can put it out by running the washing machine....

Update on the retainer: it has been cleaned as much as it can be. Even the dentist couldn't get it this clean O.O

On other bad related news. One of the moles on my back has decided to start an exploration. Right now its a oval shape multicolored monster about the width of a penny. The next time i can get to the doc isn't until later in december, so i'll ask her if i can just have it removed. I had one on my inner thigh (was born with it apperenlty) and it decided to get bigger. Long story short, had it removed, the doctor at the time took the stiches out too early, the site busted open in class (stupid hard desk), back to the E.R., also discovered during this time i had a problem with neosporan and bandaids, now have a nice large scar. Ugh. I also know the dangers of moles very well. Its in a spot where i'll have to be careful once i have stiches. And of course i can't badage it myself or take care of it.... grrrr...

on yet another note, my computers display keeps crashing. It was just in the shop in august-september for over a month for a motherboard replacement.

Looks like I may be superbitch wife from hell on this one then :o

Been together 12 years so must be doing something right :)

I did work out early on that by 'give me some hints what you want' meant tell me exactly what you'd like, preferably in writing!

At Christmas we often get each other tickets, and then enjoy a concert or festival together the following summer. We don't really need more stuff...

Sounds good, hopefully the fixes will be simple and not too expensive:)

Don't forget the thumb reports ! :)

Here it is! Post number 6,000 by yours truly. Scott is still at 5,997.

The plumber and his helper are here, trying to get to the root of the problem. Well, that is it, you see. The drain is partially obstructed by tree roots that the plumber's snake is having trouble getting through. This is a condo, so the part of the plumbing outside the walls is the responsibility of the corporation. Hmmm.

    • Hi everyone! I'm feeling very frustrated. I have been dealing with GI upset, bloating, very painful gas(that is hard to release), alternating from constipation to diarrhea for a long time now:(... my symptoms seem to be getting worse. Sometimes I get painful spasms located on my upper right quadrant of my stomach and low grade fever. I recently went to a GI doctor and he put me on a lactose free diet. He said I might be lactose intolerant and may have IBS. He did not think I would have celiac. I did relatively well on the lactose free diet for 2weeks.This diet alleviated some of my gas discomfort. Also, he had me get blood work for celiac, ulcerative colitis and H pylori. My bloodwork was positive for celiac disease. The antibody TTG was high 36.6, which is specific for celiac. My C-reactive protein was high as well 13.4--Norm is 2-7(C-reactive protein checks for inflammation anywhere in the body). They called me and told me I had to get an upper endoscopy, which biopsy showed up normal. So should I just leave it like that, or go to a different doctor and get a different opinion? I'm just wondering why TTG antibody-A  was elevated. I'm so frustrated and I really don't want my symptoms to get worse... is there a lot of false negative biopsy? What should I do:(??? Should I just give up...
    • It's all very frustrating.  I had the skin prick tests done last year and they told me I had no allergies, but I have reactions all the time, such as itching, watery, runny, itchy eyes, digestive issues, stomach cramps, IBS-type symptoms,  mental fogginess, etc.   I had blood tests done by a naturopath a few years ago and my worst food intolerance was wheat/gluten by far.  The naturopath found several other reactive foods but said most of them were mild compared to my reaction to gluten.  I looked online at the ingredients for both products, but it's confusing, the main ingredients shared by these two products were brown rice flour and potato starch.  I've used brown rice in baking with no problems, it could be the potato starch, which I don't often use, but I don't have any reaction to eating real potatoes.  
    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
