Oh gawwwwwwwd the lunacy . ...
After days of lonely laments - lonely Lentan laments even - including earlier today if I'm not mistaken?? :wacko:


Lonely Lenten Laments!!!!!!!!!!! another song by.....I forgot which of our bands....... Phecal Phats?

It IS always possible to get dates. Whether they're good, worthy, interesting - that is another story, as we all know. ;)

Date must know these words - a bit of a test, from now on:

Lascivious
Squalid
Erudite
denoument
sycophantic
Phecal Phat
....and many more. :lol:

Jesus really said that? Whoa...I thought a cubit was a metric area measurement or something. Did Jesus use the metric system? He was a carpenter, true, so he would be measuring widths and angles....in centimetres? <_< :rolleyes:
Morning, Sillies!!

:lol: you silly. 'Tis now translated to say cubit, don't know what the original measurement was........but he really did say it - and I remember the first time reading it, in high school or college - it quite struck me - how worry doesn't change the outcome of anything.......

I'm not much of a worrier. Just worry that I"ll be old, impecunious, and alone. :lol:

OMG - Emily your dad had a massive heart attack? I am SO glad he's okay and you've had more years of silliness with him. :)


psssst! Richard is on the board........


<_< soooooooo fleeting.......here and then.....gone....just like that. BAH!

MORNING SILLIES!!!!!!! Amanda - don't work too hard.....and poor John, sick again. :(

You know - I bet our Nicola has found herself in a forumless abyss again........horrors!

No. A cubit is what you get put into when you work at a cheap office. So actually, you don't want cubits added to your life and since worrying won't add them, I guess that means worrying is a good thing.

I've missed you all as well. My how time flies...I can't begin to catch up on the silli-bidness that I've missed, but I'm glad to see you've kept the lights on.

I actually logged on today for "official business" :o

To make a long story short, the last two minths (and counting) have been an absolute roller coaster for me and my family...My younger sister has slipped into a deep depression and we are all very worried for her. She finally agreed to go see a Dr. and he promptly put her on anti-depressants. Hopefully this will help. I had an epiphany last night, which leads me to my "official business" here today... I was laying in bed think about the situation and the light bulb went on that perhaps she is suffering from Celiac's...My older sister was Dx'd before I was, my mom is asymptomatic but carries the gene (not THE "Gene" Bev) :P ...so it kind of makes sense that she may suffer as well... I'm not off base here, right?I was trying to see if there is research that showed celiac disease manifesting with depression as a symptom. She has none of the GI symptoms...

I just want to help her get better...it's frightening -the change in her demeanor and her withdrawl from the world at large.

Sorry to cast a cloud over the siliness. Off to take care of business.

Ugh--I remember that well :( Tis truly heinous. Maybe a wee bit of chocolate?

Richard!

Great to see you! :) I'm so sorry about your sister--I have a very similar thing going on in my family. I wrote about it here a while ago (so hard to go back and find anything in this thread), but the gist of it is that my sister has been in and out of the hospital for depression 3 times this past year. It seemed to become debilitating (she lost weight, stopped eating, and was found to be anemic) as she had to deal with her husband being diagnosed with a serious illness.

I have gotten nowhere in trying to have her get tested for Celiac--even though I carry the DQ2 gene and since I'm diagnosed, she has a much higher chance of having it.

I did some research into the links between Celiac and depression and found that there most certainly is a connection. I think it's definately worth a try for your sister--I know Susie will have a lot to weigh in on with this subject. Please, urge her to get tested.

An aside--my sister was put on antidepressants as well, but they don't seem to be helping as much as expected. (She also sees a therapist). My take on it is that she may not be absorbing the meds, and that's why she hasn't seen much improvement in over a year.

Anyway, I send good thoughts your way--when you get a chance, keep us posted and if you want any of the articles I found, let me know. :)

Richard, so good to see you! It's not been the same without you :lol:

So sorry to hear about your sister. My heart goes out to you, your sister, and all in your family.

I don't think you are off base at all suspecting a celiac connection, gluten wreaks havoc on the neurological system. And given it's in your family, and your mom has the gene, it is very likely that clearing gluten out of her diet will be very helpful.

Here is a link discussing this very thing:

A little silly--

Two men are out ice fishing at their favorite spot sitting quietly and drinking beer.

Almost silently, so as not to scare the fish, one guy says, "I think I'm gonna divorce my wife - she hasn't spoken to me in over two months."



After slowly sipping his beer, the other guy thoughtfully replies, "You might reconsider... women like that are really hard to find!"
