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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
