Amanda--you in for the Sillie Summit? ....And yes, we must find a way to git our friends out west here for this historic meeting B)

I am in for the Silly Summit, but I am hoping it will be held somewhere outside the Philly limits, since I will be traveling alone and I cannot do city driving and I get lost....it is scary for me....We can meet in other places out side the city though right?

Amanda--we'll have to figure something out that's good for everyone. :)

Well....I didn't make it to the Chiropractor :angry: I've been sick to my stomach since I woke up and was struck with D for the third time as I was locking the door <_<:(:angry:

Felt terrible for having to call them so late and say I wasn't going to make it. This hasn't happened is a long time....I think it's the new creamer I've been drinking in my tea--it has a little casein :ph34r: . I knew sumphin was up when I didn't go for 3 days, and then today this. I bought the creamer last Friday, so I'm sure it's the culprit.

I told Mark that it probably wouldn't agree with me since it was so good :angry:

I hear ya.

Yesterday I had some nachos with rice and beans and hot sauce that was made from pure ground up pepper seeds. Many things that I shouldn't have eaten. Towards the end of the day my tummy hurt pretty bad, and I was musing over my list of acceptable foods that I could eat that would soothe my tummy. -nothing. I ended up having salmon and nothing else.

Just got a response from the shelter. I appear to have passed the initial application phase. I'll go visit them on Saturday to see if we get along.

Oh patti and Jess- Sorry you're both feeling uggy.....Unfortunately, I'm on your bandwagon with you. This 8 week part of antibiotics is uhm...sucking lemons. Headache, super achey and no appetite. Is it over yet? (No- 5 more weeks) <_<:(

Clearly the preferred cat of Silly yaks.

Yep- our male has coon in him!

Last year I got a note from a girl that said, "Thanks for helping me become a better person". Things like that remind me why I'm there.....

OOH!....reminds me of a story.....

Two years ago, near the end of the school year, I read some poems written by a boy for a class assignment and thought they were awesome...so I asked him if I could copy them.

I always gave him parental-type advice in a way that I thought he would listen.

....Then he met someone and proceeded to tell me about this first encounter with another boy....Tongue and all!!!! :o TMI!!!! :o:o:o

Doesn't that just get you- I had a similar note from a boy I had who was described by his previous teachers as a lazy, good for nothing slacker. He wasn't- he was a recovering alcoholic (15) and desperately wanted to do well but all his teachers had been mean to him. I still have the note and will always keep it!

If they feel like they can share stuff like that with you, you got the MS mojo baby!

Oh!! I forgot the greatest weakness question.

Or "my inability to convince people of my infallibility".

Or "WEAKnesses!?? Do you mean lesser strengths?"

My favorite answer was that I'm too hard on and impatient with myself :P

Ooh--great news! :D

Ugh--compared to what you go through, my tummy ache is just a minor inconvenience! Keep your chin up, Bev, you're doing great with all this and just know that there is light at the end of the tunnel :);)

I so truly loved working with the kids at the high school. (all this talk about schools and the kids has me thinking about it) We lived in a smallish town where everyone seemed to know everyone else.

I couldn't go out of the house to the grocery or whatever without running into one of "my kids"--who always greeted me with a big hug. I do miss that since we moved, although I stay in touch with one of my former co-workers who became a friend -- she keeps me up to date :D

Bev!! Hang in there. ...I so admire your attitude, your phunniness when you're sick! :)

And Bev says she's IN for the Psilly Philly Psummit, if she's not family vacationing at the time....YAY!!

Sun's out here this AM, more rain later <_< .....basement report: new sump pump is working beautifully (and constantly) as well as the new dehumidifier! :D Operation dry-out is working!

Yay! Patti, did someone suggest that you invest in a backup sump? We did after our big flood....good insurance, and it can be programmed to kick in if the main one fails.

Just got a response from the shelter. I appear to have passed the initial application phase. I'll go visit them on Saturday to see if we get along.

Yessssss!! How exciting! Jess, you may come home wif' yer arms full of homeless cats/kittens...like, ten of them er sumfin'. I know that this would be a very real and present danger for me..... :rolleyes:

OMG - - just picturing my students greeting me with huge hugs... :lol::lol:

The French, I would say, are Europeans who are generally not openly affectionate or physical. At least, certainly not professionally - - there is clearly a line drawn. However, the Venezuelans? The Italians? Unable, at times, to extricatre myself from their arms.... :o:lol:

I was discussing the merits of a one-eyed cat with my room mate. He's against it, so I told them I was just going to meet them on Saturday and decide. He rolled his eyes at me and said "Yea, right. As soon as you see them you'll want them both."

Crazy cat lady status here I come.

If - and it's still a big if - this becomes something that can ameliorate even 10% of the misery some of these people go through, isn't it worth it? Even if a few people get stinking rich as a result?

/dismount soapbox

funny from the folks:

An elderly Texas cowhand went to the local drug store and asked the pharmacist for the little blue Viagra pill.

The pharmacist asked 'How many?'

The cowboy replied, 'Just a few, maybe a half dozen. I cut each one into four pieces.'

The pharmacist said, 'That's too small a dose. That won't get you through sex.'

The old fellow said, 'Oh, I'm past eighty years old, and I don't even think

about sex much anymore.

I just want it to stick out far enough so I don't pee on my new boots.

Here I was, suddenly struck..."Hey! Who's BILL IN MARYLAND? Mygawd...a real new Newbie has started reading, and then actually POSTED here??!" I got all excited. But he's way over in another section, a safe distance from Sillyville.

Elsie's appointment is at 3:30. I'm leaving in a few. Knots in stomach..... :(

It's Ptaoughmghmn's unofficial job, methinks. To notice, and then draw our attention to, these things.... :lol:

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
