Flexiflyers rock - we use many plastc sleds - trash can lids - yet nothing beats my flyer on the right hill with loads of fresh to land on.

I don't think I'm ready for a flyer - make a snow angel for me.

Wishing your pain away and Hubs safe return. You are amazing - even in pain your creations are nothing short of miraculous.

Hoping your pain becomes less each day :)

You are so sweet. :) Cooking keeps me sane many days, even if I must break down the recipes into its various components and just do one at a time, rest, do another, rest... Part of it is the fear of losing my passion for things. I do not want to go down that path! So far, so good.

I FINALLY slept last night. Most nights I must get up and walk around because of pain. Last night I did not get up at all. And this afternoon the one I love more than life itself will return. Amazing how when one marries your heart bursts with love and you cannot fathom loving him/her any more than you do but then it grows and grows and grows into something even more incredible. I love my husband. :wub:

Yesterday I mixed up a batch of rub for making jerky today which I am just about to do. I am going housesitting for a few days tomorrow and of course cannot cook out there. So, am making a few snacks to take along that are better choices than pigging out on chips and such like.

Tonight am making a bit pot of chile con carne with chipotle and a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Bay-infused white rice. Shaved Brussels sprouts with a Meyer lemon Dijon vinaigrette. That should keep us nice and cozy tonight. ^_^

I can relate to this sentiment on every level, dear girl. It was my husband who kept me from going mad when I was at my painful, sickest worst and our love only grows more with each year. He's my rock and my heartbeat :wub:and I light up like a firefly when I hear the door open and he

yells," I'm home, Babe!'

A bit mushy and goofy, I know, but I don't care.

For years, I spent many nights waking around and around my house at night because of the pain. I barely slept for 3 years.

It's better. I sleep nearly 6 or 7 hours now.

And I go to the gym. That seemed impossible 2 years ago. I could barely walk.

I promise you, honey---just keep doing all the therapies we have talked about and I think in time, you'll have more relief, too.

Hang in there, my friend.xx.

It's darn cold here, so it's feeling like a chicken and rice soup kind of day with cheesy rolls.

I'm going for a double trial--grain and dairy- let's see what happens. I know, I know.... I should try them separately, but I am feeling lucky. :D (and going against my own advice to others is a bit rebellious....)

Funny, I ended up doing cheese and rice together. I seem to have survived adding the gluten-free soy sauce too.

Dinner is as many roasted vegetables.as I can get my hands on, and most likely lamb.

Yes. You understand so thoroughly, Irish. I wouldn't even need to explain anything to you. All I would need to say is "Ouch" and you would know. Our husbands are Heaven sent. My favourite time of the day is whenever mine gets home from work or wherever he is. Then he puts everything aside and we lie down and discuss my day. He dislikes talking shop and I dislike discussing pain. He knows and gauges my moods/pain levels well. So, we discuss the new dog I saw in the park or the ingredients that go into dinner, etc. Sure, we discuss the yucky stuff, but choose not to dwell on it. We try to find ways to change/improve things. My husband is not perfect (who is?) but he is my rock and makes me feel so loved, cherished and secure. And no, he has no brothers! Well, except for Irish's husband. ^_^

OK. Enough mushiness for today. My jerky is smelling soooooo good! How can I wait for six more hours to taste it?? The cure I used is from Michael Symon's new book, "Carnivore". I would NOT make a good vegetarian. At all. :wacko:

Not a good vegetarian here either. I love meat. I admit it. It's a moral dilemma for me as I love animals.

I wish I could be a vegetarian or even a vegan. I do not think my muscles can recover without the meat protein right now.

And I feel bad when I look a cow in the eye. I cast my eyes down in shame when we pass by the neighbors' farms.

I will not eat the venison my neighbors offer. I just fed those guys in my backyard :unsure: sigh....

well, my guy is an only child and every female I know asks me " does he have a brother? "

I would clone him if I could. :lol:

It is a moral dilemma for me, too. I LOVE animals. In fact, we are becoming foster "parents" soon. We lost our precious border collie three years ago and we feel it is time for another one to love. I grew up on a farm and saw a lot of butchery (pigs, cattle, sheep...still not sure where my black sheep Ebony went) and all manner of poultry. But I have such respect for animals and as I grow older the mushier I get. In fact, I cannot handle seeing a stray dog or abused animals on the news. My husband used to be a bow hunter but he cannot do it any longer. He is about the most serious animal lover I have ever seen. He's the type who will even approach dogs on chains whose hair is standing up on end and snarling with saliva dripping all over the place. Well, I'm exaggerating just a touch, but still. He cannot pass an animal without touching it.

Managed some real cooking tonight. I've been sort of secretly lamenting the fact that I'll never have Chinese food again since I can't have soy, probably ever again. Then my husband is all, you should find a recipe for lo mien. <_< Not to be deterred I began searching for a soy sauce alternative and kept coming up with all sorts of make your own with beef bouillon or stock, both of which I can't buy and finally happened on coconut aminos. Third health food store and finally they had some, I was afraid for half a second that he would balk at the $7 a bottle price but I was quickly like oooooh, that looks cheap. BAM! in the cart.

So, we came home and made some chicken lo mien for supper. I rather enjoyed it and I was quite happy. I asked him what he thought, he wasn't impressed but thought that if we tweaked it a little maybe we could improve it. Well, at least the leftovers are all mine! He can make his own supper tomorrow.

and tomorrow I'll make two of these - without the fluffy icing -- I prefer more of a ganache (sp?) look - but will use berries along the base and "Betty Boop" salt and pepper shaker set for decor -- yep, someone very important to me looks like Betty Boop and was born the same year Betty was created...hope to bring a bit of cheer along with the cake :D

Caught a bug that was going around. I've still sort of got it. :blink: I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It'll be a week tommorow that i've had it. Though, i have been feeling better, my stomach is taking its sweet time.

    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.
    • Celiac.com: Traveling While Gluten-Free? What To Consider From Someone with Celiac Disease
      There are a few definite truths about living gluten-free: You miss bagels every day. Curious friends regularly badger you with questions like “is ... View the full article
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
