Its in the 80s here with rain drizzles. We went from blizzarding one week, to rainy week, to summer stuff. Everything seems to have  jumped a foot and my allergies are going crazy.

 

Dinner? No clue.

I had some errands today that couldn't be put off. It seems I have decided to become allergic to the sun. I have a positively beautiful rash from it. <_< I don't think I want to play the is it just from exposure or is it from a product/food and exposure combo game. I will simply avoid the sun midday.

 

Now that I am home, and totally beat I am just going to do some reheated pasta and meatloaf for dinner with some fried garlic green beans. I picked up some Moroccan mint and some mint strawberry at the garden store today since the herb shop doesn't sell mint.  :blink: I suppose I have to wait until close to sunset to go play garden hero.

or from me... I can tolerate the sun without overheating, rashes and bumps. Maybe it is one symptom  I "escaped"?

( that would be a first, since I have everything else on celiac, food intolerance and HIT symptoms lists.)  <_<

IDK you guys, sounds like the sort of thing that could be contagious. :P

 

I managed to get my mint in pots and all three (short) rows of corn in the ground tonight. My husband probably thinks I'm a little weird for gardening barefoot. Oh well, he can think what he likes. I like walking in the dirt in my bare feet.

Well, you got THAT from me. :D  I have always played in the yard barefoot. And I have the bee stings to prove it.

What can I say? I hate shoes. (not a girlie thing to say, I know) 

 

Going back to the gym today (although lugging things up the stairs for 5 hours and hurling them over my head into the dumpster  sure seemed as if I were at the gym the last few days) and then, the monthly BJs run (oh boy!) and then, my workout with the PT/MT and then, to Sherry Lynn's Gluten Free cafe. Yup, all G F all the time. I am so lucky to have her nearby and to call her my friend. I am trying to convince her she needs to open a franchise in Florida, Colorado, Kansas, Utah, California etc.........

 

Dinner tonight will be: whatever we do not finish for lunch. Her son gives us portions the size of Texas. And I hold him entirely responsible for my postDX weight gain (because I certainly did not shove those Boston cream  donuts, carrot cake cupcakes, cinnamon raisin bagels and almond cookies down my throat)

I have self-control. :ph34r:

late congrats, mw!!  i WISH i could get some of my family members (and even my friend, whose doc keeps her dx bouncing from lupus to rheumatoid arthritis to pre-diabeties) to at least TRY to remove gluten from their diet if not get tested.  even though they can SEE how much better i am!!!  so - i am very happy your mom is jumping on board :D

 

tonight is ski-lisa inspired teriyaki burgers with grilled pineapple

some kind of beet salad

and pot cheese if i know my husband.  and i do :)

Hubs is working tonight til 8 so we have a very small window to eat and get out of the house. Burgers and fries and out the door when he gets home. It may not be healthy, but it will get us through our night. I forgot to get up early to do errands before the middle of the day. Oops. :ph34r: I guess I can go this evening before dinner.

 

Last night I was standing in the kitchen in my bare feet covered in dirt. My shirt, my pants, my super dirty feet and I managed an epic belch. My husband was like way to be lady like. I just looked down at myself and and back at him and asked if I really look like a lady. :lol:

 

And there really is something magically special about being in the grass and dirt in bare feet. I don't think my husband understands because his mother probably never let him be outside barefoot after he was 9. :( I'm not sure he would find it wise to be out without shoes at this point which may be wise but is still sad.

Thanks for everyone's good wishes about my Mum. For what it is worth, I went for an approach of slow drip feed, transforming my health, and major emotional blackmail, when I told her as I couldn't get a diagnosis, but if she did, it might help if the kids ever needed it. Not proud, but desperate and happy.

Dinner is whatever goes out of date today.

When i was younger i always went barefoot. I learned how to run quickly across the dark road in 90 degree heat. When i moved, however, the area  i lived in was really rocky so i couldn't really do it.

 

Pasta tonight. Very little time on my hands.

Mothers have been emotionally blackmailing their children for untold centuries. Besides, in the words of every mother who has ever done this to her child... "its for your own good!" :lol:

Skipped dinner for the past couple of nights...some sort of allergy type fun prevented normal life....am feeling a bit better after resting this morning so I think ill make something nice for the men....steak, oven fries and asparagus with some kind of desert.

High point from the past few days....on my biology field trip the other day I had the Professor's ear so I was teasing him a bit about there being no As in his class...I suggested that I didn't think his computer was calculating grades correctly .... and I was right!!! The formulas for weighting tests was wrong....everybody's grade went up 4-10%. The old chick in class is now the hero :)

Old chicks rock! ;)  hope you feel better ASAP.

 

Making bison stuffed peppers, fresh green beans and sitting down after a week of more hard work and declaring it's "miller time". A startlingly cold bombay sapphire on the rocks with a few olives...ah, that's the ticket!

Histamine be damned.

 

Whew. All done. I even mowed the front lawn (which takes an hour) and I am feeling smug (despite banging my head on the half open garage door this morning--thanks dear hubs, I'm challenged enough without setting up land mines for me LOL ) and then, nearly poking my eye out with a tree branch as I ducked under the pin oak.

 

I should get hazard pay.

I rethought last night's plans. I forgot I had grabbed a pork loin at the store on sale so I just threw that in the oven for dinner. Tonight we'll do burgers because I'm subbing a night class and won't be home til about 9ish. I have no interest in anything that takes more effort than my counter grill and microwave tonight.

 

You should get extra credit for being generally awesome. B)

 

And most of us should get hazard pay just for getting out of bed. :lol:

    • I would like to ask if anyone has eaten puffed rice from Arrowhead Mills.  My daughter, who has celiac, wants to eat it and I am looking for advice.  The only ingredient is rice, but they do not test the product so do not label it gluten free.  I called the company and they say they clean all their equipment between each product, but since they don't test it cannot label it as gluten free.  Would you allow your daughter to eat this product?
    • He might have celiac disease (or just the start of it).  He might have Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance, which is real, but there is not a test for it.  He might have other food intolerances (milk, dyes, etc.).  You have been to an allergist and he did not positive for allergies (I assume wheat was included in the panel.).  Trialing a diet is fine, even a gluten free diet, when you ruled out everything.  But you have that quirky TTG result.  I gave you the link from the MayoClinic (top notch) and their algorithm recommends further evaluation.  An allergist is not a celiac expert nor is primary care doctor.  You should get a referral to a Ped GI.  If she/he suggests a gluten-free diet, then fine.  Because if he improves then, the GI will give you a diagnosis.  By the time you see the GI, he might have ordered another round of celiac blood tests, genetic tests, or he might want to order an endoscopy.  This case is not clear and that is a bummer.   The cure is the diet.  But he will be going to school and a diagnosis will pave the way for accommodations all the way to college.  And anyone here will tell you that once you get off gluten (and that is the root cause), it is awful....horrific... to go back on it for further testing.   This is his life and yours.  You must do what is best for your family.  I wish you well and we are here to support you.  I care.  I am mom.  
    • This just published: Highlights   • Kernel-based gluten contamination in oats skews gluten analysis results. • Grinding inadequately disperses gluten to allow a single accurate analysis. • Lognormal distribution of the test results renders a single test unrepresentative.   Abstract Oats are easily contaminated with gluten-rich kernels of wheat, rye and barley. These contaminants are like gluten ‘pills’, shown here to skew gluten analysis results. Using R-Biopharm R5 ELISA, we quantified gluten in gluten-free oatmeal servings from an in-market survey. For samples with a 5–20 ppm reading on a first test, replicate analyses provided results ranging <5 ppm to >160 ppm. This suggests sample grinding may inadequately disperse gluten to allow a single accurate gluten assessment. To ascertain this, and characterize the distribution of 0.25-g gluten test results for kernel contaminated oats, twelve 50 g samples of pure oats, each spiked with a wheat kernel, showed that 0.25 g test results followed log-normal-like distributions. With this, we estimate probabilities of mis-assessment for a ‘single measure/sample’ relative to the <20 ppm regulatory threshold, and derive an equation relating the probability of mis-assessment to sample average gluten content.   The full article can be accessed at Gluten Free Watchdog if are a subscriber.
    • If I may say something right now, the suggestions, advice, and information provided to you in this forum is just that: suggestions, advice, and information.  What has been provided can be used as tools to help figure out what is going on.  Please don't go away disgruntled or too frustrated.  There have been times myself when advice and suggestions was given to me, and I was not sure what to do about all the information.  I had to think and pray on it before I could act on it because my brain was functioning enough to do something about it right away.  It was on survival mode.  Forgive me if I am wrong, but I believe this is where you are at right now.  You are not sure where to go or what to do, so your body is just doing what it can to function day in, day out.  If this assumption is correct, I GET IT!  It is not fun, neither is it easy. Don't give up.  Things will get better.  Take all of this information and go to your primary doctor to see if you both can put your heads together and figure this out.  The answer may not come right away, but be patient.  it could be everything coming at you at once that making your body go into hypersentive mode.  I don't know, because I am not in your situation.  Until you go to the doctor, do what you know to do and God will take care of the rest.  There is something that has kept me sane through this past year: It will be okay because God is in control.  He knows what is happening to you and your future is going to be.  When you have a good day, enjoy those moments.  When you have a bad day, bring back to memory those good days and see if you can do something for another person.  I have found this year that if I focus on someone else through the bad times especially things don't seem as grim. I will be praying for you.
