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:

:lol:

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:

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
