That's better! Somebody tell a funny! I'll go first.

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint

pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a

decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater,

on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300°C.

The Russians used a pencil.

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.

So sorry for your suffering. Two dentists back I told that when I was little (eons ago) my childhood dentist taught me the incorrect way to brush my teeth. He actually gave me gas when I was 3 or 4. Their way actually caused all of my gum and sensitivity problems today.

Vincent give them a call and tell them it is an emergency. Most of my gazillion docs leave me a message giving me the date and time and tell me to call if I'm not available.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers,

Healing Hugz,

Loey

Karreighn said "rectify". :P

Good catch Patti. Us Jersey girls (I might have had to move from the State but I'll always be a Jersey girl at heart) have good eyes and big hearts (especially yours). Time to try to go back to bed.

Lovin Hugz,

Thanks Loey... they put me on the top of the cancellation list, otherwise I wont get in before I leave for Christmas tripping!

My Christmas holiday is the best cause I get a long chunk of time off (I work at a university) so we hop in our truck and drive. Probably cover 2-3k miles, several states and I will finish up by being the guest preacher at a small church near Pittsburgh.

USA Today.

Not the newspaper. A day trip to Niagara Falls NY.

We needed gluten-free Bisquick for a holiday recipe that WardGirl wants to make. It is not available in Canada. We also grabbed Corn Chex and Bob's Red Mill gluten-free rolled oats. Picked up some stuff at Best Buy, too, that they don't have in Canada. We shopped at Wegmans for the first time in probably ten years. When the family had property in the Finger Lakes, Wegmans was the go-to store. The property was sold in 2006, but we had not been there in a long while before then.

So, my stomach is still being annoyed, i'm trying to figure out what set it off... was it:

A. stress (mind you its finals week)

B. a virus (i'm around many people Monday-Thursday)

C. the going bad milk (one day past its date, kinda tasted off but i played it up to my imagination)

D. CC'd at the memorial on thursday (handshakes with many gluten eaters eating gluteny things)

My stomach has been feeling off since thursday (my GERD has been acting up, no fun either).

So what say you?

I'd go with a possible combo of all four.

Take a nice long hot bath with epsom salt and bubbles -- or just shampoo or handsoap in a pinch.

Try to get a good night's sleep.

Keep food simple during finals and if something smells bad...toss it.

No tub for me, just a shower stall... :) But i've already stood in it once today.

Sleep? i'll try.. :)

Of course. I'm going to keep it simple this week.

Luckily i don't have too much homework to do, just type up a paper (a short one less then 3 pages no less) that i'll hit tommorow. I'll also have to prepare for an inclass essay that is the final. And of course a history final that i have no idea what will be on. Fun fun...

    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best  
    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich        
    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
