I took a nap and had a dream that there was a massive tarantula in my house :blink:

I suppose, since I'm stuck with unwilling celibacy at the moment, I can be the

one who takes this one for the team.... (for now.....) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yay Bunnie!!! Finally feeling better here...don't need any added limitations right now ;)

PS...hope you don't have to remain in this unwilling state much longer.

My GERD has decided to say hi tonight. Probably because i was so stressed today :/

Its at the stage of "enough to be annoying, but not enough to take something for".

Man....lotsa unpsilly stuph goin' on, here... . . . . :( . . ...GERD (which I suppose actually CAN be somewhat psilly -- I've always thought the acronym to be, anyway), and a pending root canal. Have you had one before, Vynscent? My daughter was in a horrific accident when she was twelve and all four of her front teeth had to be root canalled -- the proceedure was like a walk in the park -- no pain, in and out in an hour. My sister has had two, also painless and no big deal. However, once we start talking about the $$$$. . . ..well, THAT was an ordeal..... :(

Sorry V :(

My husband has terrible teeth--despite excellent oral hygiene and dental visits. His teeth are soft, and after a while just crumble. He has had more root canals that I can count, and actually fell asleep during one of them! Hopefully, yours will so smoothly and painlessly.

Good luck Vince. They'll numb you (or put you out) and give you pain killers afterwards. I hope it goes smoothly.

Sending extra positive energy and healing hugs,

Nope never had one before, but I have LOTS of fillings. Over 20... lost count along the way.I cna tell you every one of they was an extremely painful process to get done.

I brush/floss every day now... but when I was a teenager I could not be bothered and was haphazard with it, so i think I am paying for that now. All I know is right now my tooth REALLY hurts. The whole side of my face does, and even my temple feels tender. Grrr.

I missed the call from the doc office yesterday to set up the appointment. Grrr.

There is stuff at the pharmacy called red cross dental - it'll take the pain away until you get to the dentist. Warning - it tastes horrid! But does buy you time.. We take this along when we travel as my husband also has soft teeth that have a knack for breaking away from home.

Decidedly un-psilly! I will try to rectify this with a joke:

On the first Xmas, the first of three Wise Men stepped carefully into the stable but sank his golden slipper into a big pile of manure.”Jesus Christ!” he yelled.The woman beside the manger turned to her husband and said, “Now, Joseph, isn’t that a better name for the kid than Irving?”

Just got back from getting me hair trimmed. It was longer on the left side than the right, and was driving me nuts......it must grow faster on that one side since it was even when I last had it done. :huh:

Or I am lopsided :lol:

Luckily i've never had a root canal :blink: i have had four major fillings though (on my very back four teeth no less). I actually became un-numbed during one of them whilst he was working on it, not fun (he did call be brave though).

I've always had strong roots on my teeth. When i had my baby teeth, most of them (i kid not there were maybe 5 i got out myself) had to be removed at the dentist because the roots were the size of the tooth if not bigger :blink: they just would not desolve. I actually had a tooth bust in half (baby tooth) on pasta no less and i had to pull the rooty half out. :blink:

My teeth have strong, long roots too. Found out when I cracked a wisdom tooth on a popcorn kernel....<ouch> and had to have it pulled.

Took over an hour :o

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
