Good news is I made some homemade mustard.

Bad news is all they had were a few yellow mustard seeds and a bunch of black

Good news is I was able to make enough to last me 4 yrs.

Bad news is it is very pungent.

Good news is tastes okay with honey.

Bad news is the honey won't get the yellow stains off the counter top :o

Good news is I learned baking soda is how to make it light and creamy

Bad news is the baking soda couldn't cover up too much vinegar.

Good news is cooking the jars in a big pot did just fine to seal

Good news is that I know to never use black seed again

And there you are more good news than bad news so I win!

Ain't that the truth. Maybe I should make some pancakes every time I get sad like the ihop commercial and just slather it in honey. I feel better just thinking about it.

Hey! I discovered my happy place

Thx beachbirdie.

At some point in my life I knew I had to change my thinking. I was 245lbs. And always miserable, hungry and depressed. I heard someone mention that in order to be happy in life, we needed to be less like a thermometer and more like a thermostat. A thermometer is a direct reading of the environment we are in but a thermostat senses the environment and changes it to favorable conditions. That is pretty much the best we can do.

I have grown up a lot since seventeen, the first time I was actually hospitalized. Eventually, I learned that a positive attitude turns life in your favor. I finally realized that I should Choose to be happy despite what my life is like. What is the point of having a negative mentality, just to torture yourself even more?

Without hope I would never had stumbled upon this forum and gotten myself set back on a path to self-embetterment. Everyone on here is very selfless and helpful. It is a good environment for hope. :)

Well feel free to learn from my mistakes. When you make catsup make sure if you use balsamic vinegar, that you read the FRONT label to make sure it is balsamic vinegar and not balsamic vinaigrette. Woopsy I grabbed the wrong bottle. Oh and do not shop when you are hungry or cook something newfrom scratch when you do not have an abundance of time. One more thing, if it says it takes "T" amount of time it is really T x 2 if you have not made it before.

Just thought I would mention it in case you get your butt in gear. Haha I was using voice keyboard and it exed out the last 3 letters in the word b***. Really? Get with the times doggonit. And to think they are supposed to be cutting edge. HA! Sharp as a cotton ball.

    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
    • so does it mean a person who carry dq2 or dq8 gene will have high chance to develp celiac disease if they continue to eat gluten or some other stuff trigger it??      
    • I just wanted to share my experience. I started with the endoscopy because I was having symptoms of a hernia + I had a colonoscopy at the same time to test for Chron's. While getting the scope the doctor noticed damage of the small intestine and did biopsies and they came back positive for Celiac disease. We followed up with the necessary blood work to confirm and those all came back like yours, negative, however my genetic testing was positive. So although rare, it is possible to test negative on the blood work and still have damage and be a positive. I don't know why my blood work was off, but I am glad I had the scope first because I would have never known the damage I was doing if I relied solely on the blood work. 
    • You're welcome. Good that you're having the gene test as well. If you DO have the gene(s) then you realize one can present with celiac at any point in life -- any age -- so you would need to be tested like you were, every 2 years in the absence of symptoms. If one develops symptoms then they need to be tested right away instead of waiting for the 2 yr. mark. It's not common, but is possible to test negative on the blood and still have villi damage on endoscopic biopsy. So depending on the results of the gene test....... you might see if your doc will do a endoscopy for you OR you might be what they refer to as something like a pre-celiac where you're not testing positive yet but most likely will soon.
    • Just don't give up.  Good luck and best wishes to you.  Let me know how it's going for you.  Been there, done this.  It ain't fun.
