Newly Diagnosed with Questions

Well, your outfit does sound like it will be more flashy and colorful. You can always paint the boot heels a different color tho, no problem doing that every day in fact.
No Scotch for me. Maybe a little bourbon or rum. Or some water from a glass sounds ok too.
See you when you get back from Oz LJ. We will keep a light burning for ya.
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul

Huge hugs to you!
Also glad you are giving the chem testing a pass over the holidays - I think fp is right on this one - given time you will figure a lot more out on your own.
And one more big HUG headed your way
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE - finally the last piece of the puzzle (I hope) -- the cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.
If you have read this far - hang in there - obtaining health with any AI is a marathon, not a sprint!
This stubbornly tenacious feisty optimist is vertical once again.

I have a few minutes, so wanted to see what was cooking!
Wow FP, I am speechless with the beauty of the candles glowing...and you know I am not speechless often! That is an amazingly beautiful picture! I do appreciate the simple beauties of our world--and you just sent one of the rare beauties...light! Thank you for an amazing glowing image--I will "see it in my mind's eye all day today!" ... Truly...
Hi GottaSki, thank you for your kind words about my GinGin--she was the "healthy one" we thought. The 25+ year old cat (Khaki) is hungry and wants canned food as often as possible, every 3 minutes is her request...and the 24 year old cat Sampson is sleeping in the closet only to come out to visit when I am on the computer. My wonderful male Golden Retriever has the rampant and nasty Valley Fever (AZ disease) that in some animals (and people) *never* goes away...He is one. On 2 meds twice a day....Who would have thought it would be GinGin to go first with that list??? We miss her still...But we all know we can't predict when someone's time is up.
Which brings me to a more positive thought Let us value the small beauties of light that fill our lives! --whether they be beautiful gifts from GFF's , animals who love unconditionally , or the people in our lives who care and listen/talk when we need to (and vice versa)... That's all of the philosophy of thankfulness for me today!
FP--I guess I got my words back after being speechless, eh? Talk soon my GFF's!
