I did exactly what you said, Gee FREE....and nothing happened.

Maybe I am just "multi-quote challenged" :unsure:

The important part is the last part -- after you have done your multiquoting you do have to hit the Add Reply button to get them to pop up.

Ta Da --- I'd failed many times too...I had been using the "reply" button of the last post I selected for multiquote.

Add Reply at the bottom of the thread - finally - thanks all!

OK, then I must not have said it right, or clearly, or in English. Somehow I screwed it up. I am better with pictures myself, so here are a couple that might help. I am getting out my anti-doofus spray now.. Pssst.....:D

Notice at the bottom of the first picture the multi-quote button in your post is green after being selected.

And at the bottom of the thread, not the post,is the "Add Reply" button. It is normally blue until you select it and then it turns green like in this picture.

That's it, clicky the clickable "Add Reply" button and it will open a reply window with all the multi-quoted posts in it. It gets confusing if there are a lot of them and the posts are long. I don't do multi-quoting a lot myself. But it is nice to be able to do something the Irish can't ! :) I feel so very superior now. Oh dang, my hat is getting too tight! Headache! :( I didn't know how to do this for a long time either. And then somebody explained it, i don't remember who.

I could never make it without all of you!

Your doing great through a very frustrating process.

Let us know if you have any last minute questions before you meet with the doctor on Tuesday.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend - even if just during the daytime ;)

Thank you for all the encouragement! You have a great weekend too, Lisa!

I left my notes at the office, but if you don't mind, maybe Monday I could post the info/questions I'm bringing with me and you could let me know if I've left out something obvious...

Sure...as you can see -- there are more than a few of us that can help -- or you can PM me.

Take Care!

Well someone on another floor did something wrong -- and the Fire Department came. So today, all toaster ovens have been removed from the building.

The only toaster in the building is in our commissary and it's full of gluten. Darn it. I may have to hide a toaster in my office.

FYI, I already have an illegal space heater in my office. :) I think I would have good logic for my own toaster though!

I'm feeling pretty poorly. It feels like maybe a cumulative effect of all the gluten at night -- I'm not really "resetting" in the morning anymore. The last couple of days I've been waking up with the fatigue and muscle weakness. My appointment with the GI is this afternoon and I'm going to try to see how quickly she can schedule the procedures. Fingers crossed. Although I have a couple of more "last" meals to get in. Crazy that I want last meals, right?

And not crazy at all.

Just know that whatever the results, you can still go gluten-free and enjoy better health. There are substitutes for all those "last meals" you think you will miss. We'll help you find them.

The truth is, no gluteny food tastes as good as feeling well.

Keep us posted. Fingers crossed for you!

yep...I was teasing...I actually had my own toaster I kept in my office at one point - never had to justify it, but would have happily explained that the common toaster was medically unsafe for me.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
