Anyway, did I mention this is gross? :P I am dripping sweat not even doing anything. :angry:

No No No . . . you're GLOWING . . . you're dripping with glowness!!

Move to Vancouver, WA. You don't pay state income tax (Oregon), and you can shop in Portland and not pay sales tax (Washington).

Ummm . . . :blink: . . . OK :D

LOL, Best of both worlds! When I was in high school my friend's mom (they lived in WA) used to have me come up to shop at Vancouver Mall with them for school clothes so I could show my Oregon ID and not pay sales taxes.

Just got this from my aunt in Ohio.

IT'S SO HOT .....REALLY - HOW HOT IS IT ........?

......the birds have to use potholders to pull the worms out of the ground.

.....the trees are whistling for the

dogs.

.....the best parking place is determined

by shade instead of distance

.....hot water comes from both

taps.

.....you can make sun tea

instantly.

.....you learn that a seat belt buckle

makes a pretty good branding iron.

.....the temperature drops below 90 F and

you feel a little chilly.

.....you discover that in July it only

takes two fingers to steer your car.

.....you discover that you can get

sunburned through your car window.

.....you actually burn your hand opening

the car door.

.....you break into a sweat the instant

you step outside at 7:30 A.M.

.....your biggest motorcycle wreck fear

is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to

death"?

.....you realize that asphalt has a liquid

stage.

.....the potatoes cook underground, so all

you have to do is pull one out and add butter.

.....the cows are giving evaporated

milk.

.....farmers are feeding their chickens

crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

IT'S SO DRY that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists

are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving rain checks, and the Catholics

are praying for the wine to turn back into

water!

Today's high, a predicted 96 degrees. Low, 64. And we are under threat of dry lightning. With all of the dead trees and the lack of rain, it could be a scary day. :unsure:

I found a spot to park in the shade today at the Docs office, then had to use my inhaler to walk that much further to the door :blink:

Yesterday I had an hour to wait between getting nuke material injected and then the scan, I waited in the car so I could recline. Left side leg and forearm sunburn B)

My shoe heels get stuck on the asphalt by my mailbox, really annoying.

Ohioans can also drive with their knees to avoid the steering wheel at all costs, thus leaving two hands free to eat and drink.

:lol:

I kind of glad I haven't been able to drive. I whine like a little girl when I have to touch a hot steering wheel. I've been whining every afternoon when I go out to water my plants. Monday was okay, but yesterday and today I've practically gotten sweaty just looking out the door. I've been dripping by the time I come back in and it seriously takes like 5-10 minutes. This is kinda ridiculous.

There was one evening it was cooled off a bit and was raining, I went out and turned on the grill. My husband was kind of freaked out a little that I'd be out in the rain grilling. I was like it sure beats standing out in the sun at 100+ grilling.

It's funny living in Phoenix.... Our temp is hotter at 6:30am when I go to work than most everybody gets all day.

My car, while sitting at a stop light the other day, told me it was 130 - must have been getting heat off the pavement. Air temp was only 117.

It's usually 90-95 when I head to work.

"Cooled down" to 90 yesterday, but the evenings are "cool enough" at 75.

But if we do not get some rain soon, the apple orchards will be in trouble, (again--same as last year) and the local corn crops are looking shabby.

I feel bad for the local farmers. :(

It is my fantasy that not only will the drought hurt the corn crop, but that a blight will occur that wipes corn off of the face of the earth. Of course I wish for farmers that they find a lucrative replacement crop so they don't go broke, but that whatever that replacement crop is, it be something that no one is allergic or intolerant to. :rolleyes:

I have to admit to a moment or two of pleasure at the sight of ears of corn withering on the stalk :P but then considering that there could well be fields of sorghum nearby :unsure:

Last summer, here in Kansas, the corn withered and died. The sorghum looked great! Perhaps it's a bit hardier than the corn?

We were suppose to have several days of really good chances/percentages of rain . . . they are drying up and blowing away :(

Can't tell you the last time I was hoping for rain this much . . . hoping to be inconvenienced or have any outside plans cancelled at the last minute!!!

Mango, what part of the world are you in these days?

Actually, the corn is grown for their dairy cows, not for people. These are dairy farmers around here (I'm in NY). I feel bad for them because they struggle already and without the rain, it's just going to make it worse.

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
