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:

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?

    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      Update!  I went to my follow up with my gastro. He's hesitant to diagnose celiac without an endo, but said he will redo the blood work after I'm several months gluten free. My DGP IGA should drop after being gluten free, right? This could confirm the suspicion? I know the TTG levels drop, but want to be sure the DGP also drops on the diet.  Thanks! I've already replaced all kitchen equipment and pantry/fridge items. Early on I didn't realize the potential for cross contamination in restaurants. Now I do, so eating out has been put on halt for a bit. 
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Yes.  You have to be 100% gluten abstinent when you have Celiac Disorder.  It gets easier to be gluten abstinent, not because you get used to it but because of the negative effects that ingesting gluten causes when you accidentally eat something with gluten.  Nothing tastes good enough to go through a glutening.  As your system heals it will become less tolerant of your occasional lapses into gluten consumption--accidental or otherwise. You have to take this seriously.  You get used to it and there are some wonderful gluten-free options out there.  But you can't go back to gluten and stay healthy.  It just doesn't work that way. Good luck.
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      I  think you need to watch where you get your medical info!    Of course you can't introduce gluten back in. And  of course you have to be strictly gluten-free and not intentionally eat gluten.   "The gluten-free diet is a lifetime requirement. Eating any gluten, no matter how small an amount, can damage your intestine. This is true for anyone with the disease, including people who do not have noticeable symptoms. It can take weeks for antibody levels (indicating intestinal damage) to normalize after a person with celiac disease has consumed gluten. Depending on a person’s age at diagnosis, some problems, such as delayed growth and tooth discoloration, may not improve. The gluten-free diet requires a completely new approach to eating. You have to be extremely careful about what you buy for lunch at school or work, eat at cocktail parties, or grab from the refrigerator for a midnight snack. Eating out and traveling can be challenging as you learn to scrutinize menus for foods with gluten, question the waiter or chef about possible hidden sources of gluten, and search for safe options at airports or on the road. However, with practice, identifying potential sources of gluten becomes second nature and you’ll learn to recognize which foods are safe and which are off limits." http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment    
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      FlowerQueen is correct.  Once diagnosed with celiac disease, you should never consume gluten again without the risk of becoming very ill (osteoporosis, liver damage, lymphoma, etc.).   I think everyone has trouble in the beginning sticking to a gluten free diet.  That's because gluten is in so many processed foods.  It takes time to learn to read labels, make a safe kitchen, learn to eat out, get your family to support you.  I would advise reading out Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum.  It contains valuable tips for becoming gluten free.  Also, check out the University of Chicago's celiac website to learn about celiac disease.  Knowledge is power!   Everyone has different degrees of damage, but I would say that learning the diet and healing can take months to a year or longer.  The good news is that this is an autoimmune disorder that is treatable -- avoid gluten at all costs!   Take care and welcome to the forum!   
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Not sure what you mean by perfecting your diet? Do you mean accidentally eating gluten?   As to re-introducing gluten again, if you have celiac disease, please DO NOT ever re-introduce gluten again. It's an auto-immune disease, not a food intolerance. It will damage your gut again if you do.  Hope this helps.
