Saw this on FB. From Perpetual Kid. Not exactly a joke but a funny idea:

This weekend, you should try walking into a store all panicked and ask what year it is. When they respond with 2012, smile... start laughing uncontrollably and start screaming, "IT WORKED!!! IT WORKED!!!" If you can capture this on video, even better.

An old woman came into her doctor's office and confessed to an embarrassing problem. "I do that all the time, Doctor Johnson, but they're soundless, and they have no odor. In fact, since I've been here, I did it no less than twenty times. What can I do?"

"Here's a prescription, Mrs. Harris. Take these pills three times a day for seven days and come back and see me in a week."

Next week an upset Mrs. Harris marched into Dr. Johnson's office. "Doctor, I don't know what was in those pills, but the problem is worse! I'm doing it just as much, but now it smells terrible! What do you have to say for yourself?"

"Calm down, Mrs. Harris," said the doctor soothingly. "Now that we've fixed your sinuses, we'll work on your hearing!!!"

That reminds me of a coworker I had who complained all the time. He would use that old saying, the squeaky wheel always gets the grease? I got sick of it one day and told him that sometimes the squeaky wheel gets rePLACED. He got fired a week later... :D

Heard this one today.

A tough old cowboy from South Texas counseled his grandson

that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to

sprinkle a pinch of gun powder on his oatmeal every morning.

The grandson did this religiously to the age of 103 when he

died.

He left behind 14 children

30 grandchildren

45 great-grandchildren

25 great-great-grandchildren, and a

15-foot crater where the crematorium used to be.

GOOD: At Houma, a policeman had a perfect spot to watch for speeders, but wasn't getting many. Then he discovered the problem--a 12-year-old boy was standing up the road with a hand painted sign, which read 'RADAR TRAP AHEAD.' The officer also found the boy had an accomplice who was down the road with a sign reading 'TIPS' and a bucket full of money. (And we used to just sell lemonade!)

BETTER: A motorist was mailed a picture of his car speeding through an automated radar post in New Orleans. A $40 speeding ticket was included. Being cute, he sent the police department a picture of $40. The police responded with another mailed photo of handcuffs.

BEST: A young woman was pulled over for speeding. A Louisiana State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book. She said, "I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the State Trooper's Ball." He replied, "Louisiana State Troopers don't have balls." There was a moment of silence. He then closed his book, tipped his hat, got back in his patrol car and left.

It's a good thing it wasn't me driving that car when he said that.

I may not have known to leave well enough alone.

    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My friend, I'm sorry to hear of your pain. I don't know if mercury is related, but I will give you my brief experience. I went through so many health issues, medications, and dr's and nobody could find anything wrong with me, but I knew something was wrong. I've been through many doctors, shots, pills, etc and nothing helped. For me it all came down to gluten. I had blood tests that shown the antibodies and the endoscopy that proved I had celiac, which I don't think is needed. If your body makes the antibodies I can't help to believe you have it. Anyway, long story short. If you are sick, you are sick and if a doctor can't find the reason, move on to a new doctor. Celiac, at least for me was simple. Stop eating gluten and every other health problem goes away. I have 30 + year old amalgam fillings and I feel amazing as long as I don't put anything in my mouth that isn't naturally gluten free, which means I only eat meat and vegetables. Our bodies are all different. I guess my only advice to you is if you're sick, your sick. Nobody lives inside your body but you and you know best if you feel better. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself. 
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Ok thank you for the input! I am happy to hear what you think about her biopsy. Her GI is actually getting a second opinion from the celiac specialist. Our appointment is in a week. I have always thought she had celiac too. I asked them to do a biopsy years ago and they did but it was normal. She has more neurological symptoms than GI. She has headache and POTS. But she was reacting to all kinds of foods all of the sudden a few months ago. The low histamine diet really helped and she tolerates more foods now. I make almost everything from scratch, there is no gluten anywhere in the house and I don't use gums because she and I react to them. Breakfast is the hardest. Eggs are high histamine, she can't have oats, can't have fermented foods (yogurt), Breakfast is a nightmare. Many fruits and veggies are high histamine. She eats the ones she can tolerate. That's why I was asking about breads. What do you eat for breakfast? Are flax seeds safe or are they like oats? I can't find any flax seeds that say certified gluten free.
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Hi! So I've never posted in a medical forum but y'all seem super helpful so I figured I'd throw this out there! Sorry if this is long lol. Basically, I'm a 22 year old who has stomach problems for as long as I can remember and it's recently gotten worse. I remember having bad stomach aches and diarrhea off and on since I was little. I finally told my parents and saw a GI in high school who took an xray, said it was IBS, and told me to eat more fiber. Around the same time I was feeling weak all the time and I was having what kinda felt like panic attack symptoms without the actual psychological panic. It kind of felt like a hot flash or too much adrenaline? I just kept telling the doctors that I felt "off". I was also diagnosed with atrial flutter, sinus tach, and asthma for no apparent reason, and I just felt like crap in general some days with no explanation.  I leaned to deal with my stomach problems because everything seemed to come and go. Oddly enough when I went away to college it was a little better for my first year or two. Fast forward to about a year ago, and it started getting more consistent so I went to a new GI. She ordered an ultrasound of my abdomen and from there I actually found out that I had a poorly functioning gallbladder (without stones). I had that taken out in November and have not felt any better since. What's weird is that I never had what I would consider "gallbladder pain", as there really isn't a particular spot that hurts every time. Also I want to add that I am a super levelheaded person, so my doctor telling me it's IBS and to cut stress and see if it helps makes me roll my eyes. This is often how my diarrhea starts off these days: I'll feel bad hot flashes or just "off" and foggy for no reason, then hear the gurgles, get pain, and then diarrhea. Most of the time I feel better after that; sometimes I don't. But I think it's weird that I often feel fluish before my stomach even starts hurting.  Basically I just have all these weird vague symptoms that don't seem related and have been coming and going since at least high school. My current GI doc ordered IGA and IGG tests last summer which came back negative. She also did a colonoscopy a few weeks ago and that was negative too. Now she wants to do a small bowel xray with barium.  Here are my main symptoms: diarrhea 2-6 x a day (it ranges from just loose stools to full-on watery)  severe bloating to the point I look pregnant weird hot flashes that seem correlated to my stomach problems headaches had my gallbladder taken out even though I'm 22 and normal weight short stature (4' 10") nausea bad eczema   Does this really seem like IBS or could my blood results be wrong? My doctor seems to think she's thoroughly tested me for celiac. Would the small intestine xray show any of that? Thanks in advance!!!    
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I have been struggling with  symptoms for over a year and had lots of other testing done by my GI.  She did the celiac disease blood test a few weeks ago.  It came back positive for the two genetic markers but my antibodies were negative.  I received the results by phone from the (stupid) nurse who only relayed to me that "your tests showed that you are positive for Celiacs Disease.  you need to go on a gluten free diet and follow up in a few months".  I was so surprised by what she said it didn't even occur to me to call the doctor directly so I took it upon myself to research the disease and going on a strict  gluten free diet.  The first two weeks were horrible!  EVERYTHING I ate gave me diarrhea.  After two weeks, I started to feel better but anytime I inadvertently ate gluten by accident or was cross contaminated, I had horrible diarrhea again.  I spoke with my GI doctor today (I work at the hospital where she works) and she explained the blood results better to me.  (I still haven't expressed my anger about the nurse to her yet...but I will!) It doesn't make sense to me that I have the gene, have been experiencing IMO full blown symptoms (significant weight loss, malnourished, diarrhea, migraines, increased depression/anxiety, etc) but my antibody test was negative.  Could it be lab error?  I asked about an endoscopy and she said we could do it but it still may not confirm the disease.  I've also researched IBS and I don't seem to match up with those symptoms. Part of me wants to know if I have a gluten intolerance or the actual disease.  Either way I'll continue to follow the gluten-free diet but I think it's important to know if I have an autoimmune disease correct?  Or does it? Just looking for some guidance...
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely!!!!!!! Your doctor seems to think all her villi have to be completely wiped out for her to be celiac. Like cyclinglady says.... get the records & get a second opinion. BTW, I happen to agree with all the rest she said too but I just wanted to emphasize the second opinion part.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
