Jess! - UGH!!! Sorry to hear about the new drug and additional food restrictions . . . but this caught my eye

Went to the dermatologist for a rash on my face. He said it's dermatitis that's exacerbated by my psoriasis. He wants me to start taking methotrexate (a cytotoxin) and stop eating sugar, carbs, and alcohol. So no more fruit, rice crackers, wine. Nothing that I can just throw in my backpack and take to work.

. . . you get to take alcohol to work??? You must work for the goverment.

Picturing Julie circling said treadmill, sniffing it, tentatively touching it but withdrawing her hand rapidly (in case it bites - which it may :blink: you never know)

Tomorrow Julie can hold the rail (good luck ;) )

Sillies - - I was in a terrible vortex all day yesterday............and I'm emerging from it now....... I missed such hilarity!

Hi all,

I don't think I'm gonna take the job What a loser

Patti - - I am late in responding to this..........but as everyone else has already said, you are NOT a Loser, not one bit!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't make us hurt you...........

anywho - - you did the right thing and I don't have anything else to add to what everyone else has said. Besides, you need to keep your sillies company all day, counsel us and others on this phorum.... :P

A nekkid tree hugging lady, but something is missing.......must pound pots and pans over head whilst turning clockwise one quarter turn facing each direction.

now that cracked me up........the quarter turn..... :lol: Yes, I can DO this job!!!! I"ll bring the skull crusher, and a dingo-ish dog, and, I think some sort of magic warbling chant needs to accompany this job......also perhaps some sacred yeti scat.......................

:lol:

T'is a rather grey, wet, dull St Georges day here in blighty <_< .......nothing to do but chores :rolleyes:

this sounds PERFECT! I'll be over soon...... :P

So, I'm drinking my water, and getting ready to go for the blood draw. Hopefully it's a lab issue like Amanda suggested. Could also be all the Tylenol I use for my neck Julie, I didn't realize you still had liver issues going on. I'll keep you posted

Patti - - sorry you have to stress about this.....my friend in San Jose had elevated enzymes for years and years......she went psychotic over it (but that's how she is :blink: ) and finally, they were regulated when it was discovered she had an overactive thyroid and they put her on the meds for that - but the liver levels were elevated for almost a full decade before the discovery of thyroid condition.

Susie! Could you do this kind of job? You're looking for some part-time employment....

But wait....you're not elderly nor Chinese....

But I CAN be!!!!!!!!! :rolleyes:

Brief whiny rant.

Went to the dermatologist for a rash on my face. He said it's dermatitis that's exacerbated by my psoriasis. He wants me to start taking methotrexate (a cytotoxin) and stop eating sugar, carbs, and alcohol. So no more fruit, rice crackers, wine. Nothing that I can just throw in my backpack and take to work. Just what are you supposed to eat when you can't eat grains, or fruits, or dairy, or beans, and don't like meat?? How many days can I live on frozen shrimp and bell peppers??

I am so frickin' tired of having to schedule my life around preparing food!!!!

I hate this i hate this i hate this ihatethisIHATETHIS

:( Jess......this IS heinous. My brother eats no carbs/sugars/flours etc - except for oatmeal. For about three years now.....though he does eat his fish and fowl/foul? :blink: Fowl. <it didn't look right :lol: > Are you quite sure this derm knows what he's talking about? I'd want a different answer. :angry:

hmmm, guess I'll have to think about this as I finish off the 4 bottles of wine I need to consume before starting this nasty medicine on Saturday.

And a bit of scotch

Oh, and that last glass of rum

Dang! I had no idea I had so much to do at home. Better leave work early.

:lol: :lol: what, no wine in your backpack at work today?

Now be careful, I barphed most heartily in Vegas the day AFTER I quit taking the antibiotic......

So day 3 of Operation Target Expanded Bottom here, treadmill has not been used yet

*snort* Yes, must ease into it, like the cats Nikki described...................

Julie - - I just LOVED your ladybug analogy of - yesterday? Mentioned it to Kissey last night - - we had the most wonderful, long chat - - he could NOT have been more dear as I was gently crying over the paltry state of my life - and he agreed, I need a ladybug to come to me, I simply canNOT look for a job, pretty much ever again. It will have to come along, and Kissey has a lead about which I am most excited. :) Stay tuned.

Must take the Squeezee out for a walk.

I missed you yesterday, Susie--elated that you got out of the vortex :D

Yep--you and I will wait till the time is right. At least we have each other :rolleyes: Although, can not WAIT to hear what Kissy has in mind for you on that front.

Or, we could transform into Chinese women and go up and give Emily a hand with her tree :D

Amanda! You're jogging? You held the rail one day, then the next you stood on it without moving, then the next you put it on at a very slow speed....right? :rolleyes:

Patti! Did you spend the afternoon with Jess in her wine-drenched lab? :lol:

Okay, here is the rest of the tale of the telecommunications mess in my life.

I went into the store Tuesday morning and temporarily rerouted the voice line to the data equipment so the orders for today's delivery could be polled. The data line was still dead. The last piece of the work was supposed to happen in the morning. Late in the afternoon, just before five, I called the store and had the employee on duty check the line. Dead. :(

I called Bell at the repair service number. Got a woman who either did not understand what I was saying, or did not know anything about how a telephone worked (like, a pair of wires from the central office, to the pole outside my store, then along a wire into my building, etc.). I had the reference number from the original trouble ticket, but she could not seem to access any information. :blink:

She tells me I need to have a technician come to my store and check the wiring there. If the problem is with my wiring, there will be a service charge. I try again to explain that I have already had a technician, and the problem is not on my premises. She does not get it. :angry: :angry:

So, I give in, and she opens a new trouble report, and schedules another on-site technician for this morning. He shows up at about 10:30. He gets in touch with someone who is actually in Canada and can tell what is going on. Turns out the frame work order to rewire the other end of my line cannot be found. This guy understands the problem, and wants to fix it quickly. He does not know the people in my switching center, since he does not usually work in this part of the city. But he manages to talk to several different people, and gets the tech on the other end of the wire to start working with the promise that a new work order is being written and will arrive. It took about 20 minutes for all that to transpire.

Everything is back to normal, at least for the moment. :)

The infrastructure is old in this part of town, so another problem is not without possibility. Sunday morning a short developed in my line somewhere between the pole outside my store, and the telephone switching office about 1.5 miles south of me.

Tomorrow, I'm taking the day off. Jacquie is working my usual Thursday shift. I get to stay home and look at taxes (the Canadian filing deadline is April 30). Oh, such fun! Not. :o

That's all for now, my sillies.

Oh, that HEINOUS BELL CANADA! :angry::angry:

What a waste of your time, Peter...

Here is what you should have forcefully told these inept telephone people and technicians:

"Look...I'll have you know that I hold official Oracle status. I therefore do NOT suffer fools gladly..."

You mention the Oracle designation, and watch them snap to attention. ;):lol:

Oy .. . .I feel for ya Jess

Eeeek - rant away m'dear

...not much advise on the phoody phront (I suspect Phatauoghmn can help here)

I don't do much of the pack'n'go.

More than a few times, I've resorted to bringing a spoon & a jar of almond butter.

Or a bag of nuts.

My cold-smoked sockeye (no sugar) might travel ok. Not sure how long it's ok w/out refrig - maybe pre-freeze?

Hummus maybe - but I usually use the brown rice tortillas.

(Ack! I don't know how to do food-on-the-go at ALL!)

Okay...Jack has another tough question for us all to debate.

Another choice to make:

You must choose either option, or you will be dead. <_<:huh::lol:

Would you rather have:

A small (but unproductive) butt on your forehead....

OR

Two little feet dangling from your chin?

:lol::lol:

    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.    
    • Thanks for the replies so far everyone, much appreciated Great, another doctor gets it wrong, how many more times can they make a mess of this diagnosis process?! Bloating had gone down a bit in these first few days of cutting the gluten so I guess expect that to come back. It's one way to have a farewell tour of the gluten foods I guess - if a little or a lot makes no difference may as well go all-in... The doctors didn't diagnose this at all, Google did. If I trusted in the health professionals I'd be blaming the symptoms all on stress and having counselling for it whilst the fire raged on inside me due to a clinical condition they'd missed. Just glad one of doctors agreed to run the test on second time of asking to keep me quiet as much as anything. Believe me I've read that newbie thread multiple times, as well as numerous others around the web. Been doing nothing but since Tuesday when the blood test results came back and each time I go into the comments sections a little bit more of me gives up inside. Seems so many don't ever heal and so many associated complications too. The reality looks bleak apart from a lucky few it seems. In the nicest possible way the vegetarian choice is non-negotiable, it's a core part of what I believe and the thought of eating any form of animal \ fish flesh would make me physically sick (sorry meat eaters) so will have to find some way around it, how I don't know yet. Perhaps lots of this... http://www.pulsin.co.uk/pea-protein-isolate.html The cooking bit is a concern as it's something none of us do well at home, adds to the feeling of being completely lost right now. I kick myself for the decision that lead to the stress as I could've avoided all this. The only thing I can cling onto there is that I was having some pains in the side before that time which I blamed on a muscle strain... maybe that was the early stages, in which case I could feel a bit better knowing it had just come on gradually. With the biopsy and gluten from what I read the villi take a long time to heal up so they'd still see that. With the blood test result as definitive as it was surely the disease is pretty much confirmed? How can it heal enough for non eating gluten to throw a biopsy result yet on the flip side take over a year to heal (that sounds like the best case scenario time-wise from what I've read). Not suggesting anyone is wrong for one second but need to understand how that works with what's going on inside to make any sense of this situation.
