Twinkle star and I both have tried to message each other and it won't go through...why? I went through the right procedger...and got a" message sent "pop up, but she never got it! she sent me one...and I didn't get that either!

when Richard sent me a message last week It worked fine...we sent several messages! NOW..nothing!? Is it a tecnical problem maybe?

Originaly when we FRENDED each other there was a line under our info stating that we were unable to participate...which wasn't the case. we both had that...so we comunicated via comment box...but that keeps cutting us off before we run out of letters...equaly fustrating...at least we know its not personal..but messaging would be easier...and a little more PRIVET!!!can someone check into that please,we would apreciate that very much! :D

Cougie, I sent you a private msg. I clicked on you cute kitty pic then the send me a msg under your pick on the profile. Then i have to scroll up to see the message box. You may need to refresh your page to get the message. It should show up as a number in the top right corner of your forum page ( where your pic is & it says sign out. See if it works. Send me a message & I'll look for it.

You got my message and I got yours. Did you send the messages the same way I did? If so, that is probably all I know to do. Maybe someone else knows?

It could have been my computer playing up at the time too. I'll give it another go :) But what is the go with running out of letters in the comment box? It's annoying to have to retype your last sentence, lol!

That's not messaging, nor is it very private. It's just supposed to be a brief " Hello"

Messaging is restricted for new participants. Those in the "Members" group can only communicate with the moderators.

Those in the "Advanced Members" group can connect with any member except a new member.

Individual members can disable the function in the Privacy Section of Notification Options on the user's settings. Twinklestars, can you check that? I know Cougie's is enabled as I have exchanged messages with her.

Cougie, I have gotten all 238 messages from you and the friending! :P

My notifications of messages finally disappeared, too. Life is good.

Maybe Twinks computers on the other side of the world don't work well upside down? Maybe she has to flip it? ;)

    • I got WELL!!
      It sounds like things are looking up for you. Happy dance, happy dance! Happy Valentines Day!
    • Help understanding test results??
      I forgot to add this...I only had one positive on the complete celiac panel.  I had a positive on the DGP IgA test, my visual endoscopy "looked fine" but my biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe villi damage).  My symptom at the time was anemia.   Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  This is really important!   Hang in there!    
    • SO HUNGRY. All. The. Time.
      Over my 6 gluten-free years, I have endured this "Starving Syndrome" several times.  Actually, I have lost count.  I am 5'4" and frequently eat more than my 6'4" husband.  My weight has gone from a low of 93 lbs. to my current high of 105 lbs.  I eat as much as I possibly can.   I agree about the fats helping me to feel full.  I'm beginning to test out the "grain hypothesis" as mentioned above. It seems (feels) to me that when I go through a major healing spurt, my body just wants more food!  No idea if this is actually what is happening.  Still, I have come to look at it as a "good thing" when my body wants lots of food.  I just relax and try to give my SMART body what it wants.
    • I got WELL!!
      Update on my progress: 1.  By thorough and consistent evaluation of my food diary (every item ingested for 6 years); I've finally figured out that both dairy and nightshades cause me PAIN!  I had tried eliminating these previously; but it was no help.  I tried again anyway...and IT WORKED!!  Maybe because I'm healthier now?  Never was lactose intolerant; but BOTH these items cause me PAIN!  All over, wish-I-were-dead PAIN! 2.  Just completed 2 courses of Xifaxin.  One in November and one in February.  The first course helped some with the Buddha Belly.  This second course helped a lot!  Fingers crossed that things will only continue to improve.  (I actually think it may be helping reduce the fatigue!  But I won't mention it as I don't want to jinx it!) 3.  Added back rice.  Had been grain-free for 3 years.  Seems fine and maybe even beneficial.  I'm pursuing adding more variety to my diet.  Looking at amaranth and buckwheat.  Plan to discuss diet with nutritionist after my next GI appt.  to get tips on this.  (Had to postpone this appt. due to bad headcold--first in many years!) 4.  Plan to discuss changing levothyroxine brand at next internist appt. in a couple weeks.  Currently taking Tirosint--and love it.  But...investigating other options like Levoxyl since I may have felt better on that.  Sadly, Pfizer was NOT helpful the last 2 times I called them to discuss gluten content/contamination.  Mylan generic was VERY helpful!  Choice to be determined.  Goal is to reduce fatigue. 5.  Continuing with exercise, meditation, drawing, etc.  Paying attention to mindset and emotional calm.  Optimism is my friend. 6.  On a humorous note, my hairline continues to advance!  I always had the highest of foreheads.  Ha!  Now my hairline is moving, from all directions, closer to my eyes!  i actually have developed a widow's peak!  This is too funny.  Sixty-six years old and my hairline keeps getting thicker and more extensive!  Mother Nature toys with me! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to everyone!!   Remember to love yourself!
    • I got WELL!!
      Posterboy, Many, many thanks for providing such complete information.  Your efforts won't go to waste.  I will look into each item you mentioned. Not sure the iodine is an issue as I no longer have a thyroid.  And too much iodine can aggravate my intermittent rashes.  (Never was tested for DH.  Didn't see the point as I was already diagnosed with Celiac.) Thanks again!
