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.

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

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?

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..... :(

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
