Hard To Keep Up With All The Posts
0

13 posts in this topic

Okay, I haven't been a member for very long. But I'm noticing more all the time how hard it is to keep up with all the posts on here. It's getting more and more popular. I went on today at lunch and there were 3 pages of new posts and 3 more pages after work. I'm not complaining or saying anything should be done to fix it. I was just surprised that so many are constantly building up. Does anybody read every post? I probably only even read about 1/4 or so, because it's too time consuming to read them all. And I know I'm probably missing out on some important or cool info.

:)

You are so right, it's really hard to read all of the posts, so I have to be a bit picky. I do try and pop into the new ones at least once and see what they are about. If I can't help or it doesn't immediately pertain to my situation now, I usually let them slide for a few days, then try and check in later when things are quiet here. For instance, if someone is looking for travel info back East, then I won't bother with it, as I'm out West :D

I read most posts. I don't have DH, so I usually won't read those...I don't read about stuff like "local stores in ____, CA" since I'm on the East coast. I read most everything else, but then again, it's the summer, so I have plenty of time.

During the school year I'm much more picky... I check the new ones and then drop some if they aren't interesting to me--like Viola.

I also read them most of the time but yesterday I was gone for about 3 hours and came back and there was a page and a half of new posts :o It's a good thing the site is getting more popular though :D When I have courses I take though I can't be on here as much so only will read the ones in certain sections.

It is hard some days to keep up with the posts, especially if you are out most of the day :) I think it is great though! I love getting all the posts. Obviously I don't read all of them, but I reply to the ones that I think I can give helpful advice, humor, or share a simliar "story" ;)

I read most of them, but don't get involved or read ones that don't apply to me, or that I have no info to offer...

I check in a lot during work too. When it's slow I come on here a few times a day. We were really busy last week after a while of being slow and I said to my husband "It was so busy today I didn't have time to check the celiac board!" I guess it's a sign of how much work I have as to whether or not I come on the board.

I would like to be able to check all of the posts since a lot of times the comments go off to another topic or people post interesting things. It is good though that more and more people are joining. That means people are learning about this!

Some days it is all I can do to check in on those I have already posted to. Is there a way to get more than the last ten?

Other days, I go through and look at most of them, checking to see if I can add more than those who have already posted. Unless I can add something of value, I just back out and move on to the next one.

It's summertime, and so I share my cpu time with my kids, so I don't get on as much as I like to. When I find pages and pages, I pick and choose what I read, just as the others have said. During the school year, I read most of the threads. Of course, since we have so many more posters now, that might change!

Definitely! Either go to "today's active topics" on the main page, or, even better, between "my assistant" and the # of new messages, "View New Posts" will show you all the posts since you last got on the board...now, stay away for a week and that will be five pages...I get at least 2-3 pgs. each day...the reason it's not more than 5 each week is because at a point, there aren't too many new ones being created, but people posting a lot under the old ones.... I'm rambling.

SHORT ANSWER: yes, go to "view new posts".

Thanks, celiac3270. I meant more than my last ten posts. I use the assistant regularly. It is a great way to just see what's been up since my last visit. I just tend to post more than ten times when I am in here and I like to see if anyone has commented or asked an additional question after my post.

      I hear you Gemini. It's nucking futz!

      I went gluten free & never looked back! I have dh, the celiac rash. That makes it pretty darn easy to go gluten-free the moment you figure it out. I was not about to continue eating gluten for even one more day just so the medical establishment would be satisfied in my dx. There was not a moment of doubt in my mind that I had dh & therefore celiac. As it turns out, weirder than weirder than weird and the odds I can't even begin to imagine.... I have since, by sheer accident, had 2 docs officially dx me. Is that crazy or what??!! I did not go in asking for a dx nor even hoping for one. Frankly, I just plain didn't care what they thought. The medical community has failed me numerous times throughout my life so I don't have the highest regard for them. You are 54, I was 54 when I figured mine out. I have no kids so did not need to consider them in my decision not to go for an official dx. My parents had already passed away so that was not an issue. My brother had passed away so that was not an issue either. I did contact my nephew & tell him to let my sister know so she could get tested. So I have done my duty by her & she's an adult and a nurse & can make her own decisions. I do urge people to go for an official dx whenever possible, especially when they have kids or other 1st degree family members. If it's doable for them I think they should make a good effort at it. Also, there are certain people who express they don't think they can stick to the diet without the official dx. I think those people should pursue a dx with all their might. I have never had the slightest problem sticking religiously to gluten free eating. I have never doubted myself. I know you have tired HARD! Super, super HARD. I commend you for your dogged pursuit. I would not, could not blame you for giving it all up & just going gluten free this instant. That is a choice only you can make but I fully support whatever decision you make.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Your brother sounds like mine, Squirmy.  He was a Type 1 diabetic and had flaming celiac symptoms to boot but his docs always, always blamed his diabetes on everything.  He lived in the country and the docs in his state just were so far from being Celiac savvy.  I doubt they ever diagnosed one. His health was failing so badly that in the end, with the 3 MONTHS of non-stop diarrhea going on, he became so dehydrated that he had a heart attack and died last August 4th. His biggest mistake was trusting these idiots completely.  I think his brain was so messed up and confused that he just couldn't understand what I was trying to tell him.......that good ole brain fog.  He did what celiac's may do when left untreated for years and years.....they slowly fail and then die.  It still is extremely painful for me to think about because I was close to him.  I still see many people in my life that I think have it because of their extreme symptoms. Listening to them complain that the doctors aren't helping them. Try suing them for malpractice too......it would be too hard to prove. And then we have those who know there is something very wrong but won't give up wheat bread because that is unfathomable to them.  This disease can drive anyone crazy, for many different reasons.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
