Well, I guess the Summit should be renamed "Tea with Emily and Patti" :lol:

And then there were two.......... :lol: It will be a nice tea Patti, of course we will all be there in spirit :D (Silly Spirits)

Now, think about the Outer Banks in September or October (HIGH HURRICANE SEASON, BUT THE HOUSE IS CHEAP....hee, hee, hee.) Any interest???

Sounds lovely Lisa :)

Hi Sillies- Sorry, I am WAY behind the curve. Was with the famdamnly from Thursday to last night on an island in the middle of Lake Champlain. We were technically in VT but you could swim to NY or Canada (I swam to neither :P). I had a GREAT time still antibiotic free!!!!!!!!!!! However, several strange events occurred that I must tell you of:

Welcome back Bev :D Sounds like you had a fabulous time, strange events and all :lol: I'm so happy to hear you felt good too!!!!!!!!

Een-kway Ikki-nay!!!!!!!!! I can try, but using koe-lee-ack will be a struggle.

We have landed in Philly............ :)

Amanda!! What in hell?? You do NOT need that job. Quit, I say! Meet us in Philly!

I am SO disappointed that you won't be here with Patti and me. :(:(

Okay, Patti, it's you and me....

I've scouted out our Starbucks. Looks like it will contain our mirth and hilarity, but only JUST.....

I am SO burned out from NYC.

Between the Empitre State Building, Times Square, Staten Island, Broadway.....mygawd, I'm a wasted shell.

Many hilarious things to recount to you all, but Patti gets the in-person, in-depth, first-up edition in approximately 48 hours..... ;):rolleyes:

OK . . . can't be bothered to go back and quote . . . let's see how much I remember . . .

Jess - :lol::lol: - my thought's exactly, best thing to do with a neighbor like that is mess with her mind!! It would be fun to borrow another baby from someone and then Amanda could say something like "We were at the playground and I thought this was Landen, but now I don't think so. Do you think Jen will notice?" or "Can we borrow some beer? Landen is not wanting to go down for a nap and I want to put a little in his bottle so he'll get sleepy."

Nikki - grating - :lol::lol: - damn butterflies - :angry: - :lol::lol:

Amanda - OUCH on the meeting comment.

tom - yes, I think we're going to have to distinguish the two Lisa's some how . . . perhaps we could call (the new) Lisa, Curly . . . think of all the fonedick possibilities . . . and so both of you Lisas know, you have no say in this.

Bev - sounds like a fab time.

LisaGoose and Sarah - I'm spending the night in Asheville on our way to Fripp for vacation. Either of you close by?

Hopefully it's working it's way out of your system. How are you feeling otherwise?

Emotionally, better than I had expected to be at this point... makes me feel even more sure that the Prozac was NOT doing its job, and was instead making things worse. <_<

Physically... not great, but definitely not terrible. Still having the electric-shock-tingles, pounding heartbeat, and dizziness- all of which leads to nausea. But thank God, it's not constant... comes and goes. From what I've read, that could last for MONTHS :( ...but doesn't always. For some people it only lasts a few weeks... and everyone else is in between.

Absolutely can NOT sleep without some kind of medication- I gave up even trying for now. And odd dreams... And fatigue...

I'm not feeling great, but it's a huge relief that the emotional storms have died down. A couple days last week were completely... unbearable. But I've felt really good emotionally now, so- I'm happy about that. :D

Some people shell out a lot of money on controlled substances to feel this way. Maybe you could just add something to induce hallucinations and pretend you're back in college.

Ah Jess, there is a reason for the name.

LEDGEND has it... that Pirate would walk their old nag horses up and down the dunes with a lantern around the horses neck. It would look like a ship rolling on the sea. The other Piratiers would approach what they thought was a ship and run aground onto the dunes. The Pirates would salvage the booty from the wrecked ship. Thus, we have the name Nags Head. Now, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Whale Bone Junction - I haven't a clue.

Romantic, naw.

Done. AND......NOT in my Reeboks, but in my Birks, if you can imagine.

Beat DH, too. :ph34r::P

I had trouble singing in this @#!!@#* humidity. It's almost as bad as Ottawa.

OMG....We have a FREE happy hour at this hotel....FREE alcoholic beverages in their very swank lounge from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, and free snacks - - gluten-free salsa and corn chips, and sliced fruit!

We're doing some Ben Franklin things tomorrow......

He really was quite a Renaissance man, now, wasn't he? :)

Furthermore... The Outer Banks are the final resting place of more shipwrecks than anywhere else in the world. I have a map of them around here somewhere, probably still packed in a box, and it's amazing! There's so many shipwrecks off the shores, that it's harder to find bare ocean bottom than to find a shipwreck.

So romance is an accidental occurrence that stems from cowering under the covers to avoid the undead, seaweed-laden sailors searching for the descendants of those who caused their predicament?

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding is that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes in bowel movements (sorry if tmi) but they rarely last more than a couple of weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!    
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??

      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
