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:

    • It sounds like you're doing great. That's amazing that your anxiety has decreased like that. You're obviously doing something really good for your health. With the other things I'm sure they will get better in time. After I gave up gluten I had a bad year but overall it got better. Things like anxiety and insomnia massively improved over time with being gluten free. However, going Paleo (which you are on your way to with the no dairy too) really helped my anxiety, as did running and self-taught acupressure. In particular I found processed gluten free foods were awful for my mood. I know you have to find your own way but I really want to encourage you to see how you feel without that if you haven't already. I also can't afford therapy but when I did have it, that helped too but just being well, gives you the chance to sort your own thoughts and feelings out even without a therapist. Good luck
    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
