Not All Meetings Are Virtual!

What can I say? It's great to meet forum ppl in person, and I got to meet Momma Goose, mouse & broncobux earlier today, in Scottsdale Az. :)

It was at a mah-velous "gourmet pizza" place which is not only rightfully popular for their regular pizza, but also so serious about gluten-free pizza that they make it in a separate room. (It must be separate oven too mustn't it?)

This month's WhFds gluten-free meeting (in Tempe) is "Pizza Picazzo Night" btw.

Needless to say, I highly recommend meeting forum folks in-person. :)

Hey broncobux! Pls do NOT root for my Bears today!! I saw what happened to your Bengals and her Seahawks!! :P

(Oops never mind - Bears won) :D

It was great to meet Lisa and Tom in person. Now when I talk to Lisa on the phone, I can put a face to the voice. After everybody had to run off to games and sightseeing, Tom and I visited over coffee at the Coffee Bean.

No, I did not forget to mention Chris (Broncobux) and his beautiful girlfriend Tiffany. But, I already saw them last weekend - hee, hee.

We shared different kinds of pizza. I had never tried the cheeseburger pizza and now I will have to make it one of my special choices as it was so good.

What a treat for me!!! Getting to meet mouse, chris and tom was really cool. Lunch was to die for. Four gluten free pizzas were served that the three of us almost devoured. (what a good sport Tom was as he abstained - a will of steel)

As always in life, it was too short. But our visit was long enough to be reminded, what wonderful people there are on this forum. What a lucky one I am. ;)

Did he get it right? Arizona's pretty weird. In the summer we're same as CA, PST, but when everyone else changes their clocks, AZ doesn't, so most of the year we're Mountain Time. :wacko:

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
