I made a typo on a post and want to correct it, but I don't see the edit button.

ETA: It's here on this post, although my first edit didn't "take".

The post in question is this one:

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=35643

The edit envelope has closed. :blink: The edit button will remain on a new post for several hours then it disappears. This is the results of the "tweaking" of the site several weeks ago from the administration.

I would vote for getting the edit button back. Having the option to go back and edit if I've decided that the medical info. I've posted is too personal / identifying is important to me.

Yes, I could do that, I just don't want to. I guess I'm just not a message board person - that's okay with me. I guess it's that I say things that I wish I hadn't, even though I really do feel that way - at the time - my bad. Part of it is that through these last 2 years gluten-free, my opinions have changed at times. I sometimes don't feel like I did last year, or eve 5 minutes ago. I wish i didn't care about people who are struggling, but I do, and so i let a little piece of me go out there. I offer it up because maybe it'll help someone, but then I realize how rediculous it is that I think I can take a piece of me and help someone else with it. Nonsense. I own this.

I think I won't be back here to post again, but there may come a time when I feel differently.

thanks for everything, Safe Travels, Take care, yadda,yadda,yadda ...

Kat,

We all share pieces of ourselves with the hopes that we can help someone. That's what this board is about. There is a lot of support given here. It's here to take or here to give.

Thank You, I appreciate that.

I guess the fact (if you'll all indulge me) is that communication is much more than a bunch of words in a post. Believe me, I'm a huge fan of words, context, grammar, if you will, but readers can't hear Vibe. What I'm communicating now is just more of the same ... will it be misunderstood? Possibly, in fact, probably, it will - at least to some degree. Am I over-thinking? Maybe, but what happens when the wrong person says the right thing and it's taken the wrong way? I make so much more sense in person. I don't think I'm alone in this - I just think I'm less of a risk-taker than most. I'm just decreasing the odds of accidentally making someone feel crummy. I don't want to be responsible for making someone else feel crummy just because they can't hear the inflection in my voice. I'm not bummed or anything. I'm happy as a clam to stay out of forums, where things such as this exist for me. Nothing happened today or with the other thread that hasn't occurred to me many times in the past. The only difference now is that what I said before can't be changed - at least not without the type of effort that I'm not really willing to put into it.

The risk is the same for all of us. You have no control over how people interpret your words, no matter how carefully you choose them.

I just figure if somebody wants to put a negative spin on my words, it's just a reflection of their own unhappiness. Maybe I can change that, maybe I can't, but I know I'll feel bad if I haven't at least offered my opinion. And my happiness is something I can control.

I hear what you're saying, and I feel the same. I suppose that's why I do reply, and why I'll most likely continue to reply, despite my desire to withdraw myself from the forum. Everyone here takes that risk, and I know that. Thanks for offering up your opinion ;):lol:

    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)

    • I had a biopsy done (2 samples, 1 on a lesion and 1 next to lesions), and also more bloodwork done. All came back negative. However, I only had been eating gluten for 2 weeks prior, and it took a week of gluten for lesions to reappear. I also used a topical steroid off and on (1x a week approximately) for a month or so before testing. The dermatologist told me to stay off gluten though, and said she wants to do more allergy testing (her next open testing appt is in 6 months!!). I know I'm not the DR, but I dont think it's allergies...without a doubt, my skin begins clearing about 2 weeks post gluten-free diet...this is without changing anything else in my lifestyle. And when i had to go back on gluten before my biopsy, it took about a week, but did reappear. Now, about 2 weeks post biopsy and gluten-free, it had begun clearing until i worked outside all day in heat, humidity,  sweat etc and it has definitely irritated all the places that were healing (not new breakouts, just aggravating what was going away!). All that being said, i have a friend who is an MD( who's hobby is to attend conferences on skin conditions!), and she has told me that without a doubt, I have celiac/DH.  I think I just feel like I need test results and paperwork to show for it...especially to show family members who are unsupportive (gross understatement!) of the extreme changes I've had to make!
    • Sorry ! I have never cruised before.  Just wanting to follow your topic.  Good luck! Have a great,  safe vacation.  
    • Hi there, I hope you're all having a good day! I'll be heading on a week-long Carnival cruise shortly and had a few questions: -What is the tipping protocol? I've prepaid gratuities, but feel like the food request will warrant something extra. Should I tip the headwaiter? Hostess? Regular waiter? Chef? Those cooking at, say, the sandwich or pasta bars? If so, how much is appropriate, and should I tip at the beginning of the cruise, the end, or split it up? -It looks like the main dining room will be closed during lunch hours on most days. Any recommendations on safe bets for midday meals? I'll be on the Carnival Sunshine, for what that's worth. Thank you so much for any information you can share!
