and when Sylvia says this to me : "Pffft!"

it makes me laugh and I know she is really saying "Psshaw" or piffle!

:)

Now really, does ANYone still say Psshaw!!?? :lol:

The one that got me for a while was KWIM? :D I guess it's better than "you know"...... one of my pet peeves - NO, I don't.

or "piffle" for that matter ? :lol:

arrgh!! on the "you know what I mean?" <_<

I have a relative who punctuates every sentence with this ---and my sister and I mouth to each other "no we don't" --because she never really says anything. No full sentences whatsoever.

In 30 years, I still have no clue what this woman is talking about.

and FWIW ...to the OP, we have not really gone OT, as we are trying to amuse you during your difficult gluten challenge. ;)

Hey, I'm stumped again :blink:

Kite with insufficient momentum?

Kid with immature Mom?

Koalas wading in marsh?

something to do with a kangaroo or kazoo?

IMO (in my opinion) we are certainly OT (off topic) - hopefully making the OP (original poster) :D while laughing at ourselves.

uh oh ...well, now 3 of us are involved with these hijinks and shenanigans and hooliganism...and so, we should probably stop.

IMHO, FWIW, KWIM? so, let's KIO!

but, definitely do not lick the toaster oven handle.

Most of us (silently) agree, but do what you have to do and we can be your cheerleaders. :)

Make a "bucket list" of your favorite gluten containing foods - I forgot to add glazed old fashioned donuts to my list while I was being diagnosed - I hadn't had a donut like that for quite a while prior to dx and I really don't miss gluten very often, but boy does that image of a freshly made glazed old fashioned jump into my head at the strangest times

That's a good idea. I am getting fatter by the day though because I am only eating the gluten at night, and normally my big meal is lunch.

Honestly, if I could have one meal again (from "my other life") pre-DX...it would involve beef wellington and a pastry crust or something with phyllo dough. Because there is no way to re-create that--not that I have found anyway.

But everything else can be done gluten-free, I promise you! We have an in-house chef who will help you : love2travel.

Otherwise, I do not miss poison at all.

okay, good night and I say this with a bit of mixed emotions because I know it's making you feel icky..., "enjoy dinner".

Yowzers, if you can perform a multi-quote (something I still have yet to figure out after 2 years), then your brain frogs are laying low!

Hang tough, kid.

Erm, hit the "multiquote" button in the bottom right of each post you want to quote. Then when you are ready hit the "Add Reply " button at the bottom of the thread. Tis' easy-sleaszy.

    • This easy to make bean dip makes a great addisiton to any good munching session. Goes gret with salsa and gluten-free beer. View the full article
    • Good grief!  :o. I'm so sorry, I wish there was something I could do or say to help you.  I agree with the NP, your primary needs to be requesting copies of your records from the other doctors, as well as the records and lab reports from your hospital stay.  They are supposed to work together as a team, not just individually out in left field.
    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep.
