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.

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...

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
