He actually tries a back-flip, but, unfortunately, turkeys are anatomically unable to back-flip.

Perhaps I could be a knight?

Yeah, he seems about right! I'm going on a week of three hours a night,

don't you get too tired to wake up anymore at some point? What the crap....

PTSD sucks.

Bun, I am gonna be honest with you here. In order to heal, sleep is vital. Vital. I went through an extended period of awful insomnia in the last year to where even Ambien didn't work. I was desperate to sleep, and the only thing that helped was Ativan. Unfortunately, it is also extremely addictive. They say "causes dependency" but I say addicted since it took me 7 months to get off of the small dose I took for probably 6 months.

What did help me is Zoloft. I didn't want to take it, but was out of options and had a professional by then whom I trusted. Took a leap of faith, and within weeks I was sleeping normally and my appetite and interest were back. I take a very small dose--but it made a ton of difference. It doesn't take away your feelings, but gives you (me) the means to have the energy to cope, if that makes any sense.

Try the OTC stuff I suggested on FB, as it was helpful to a couple people I know but if it doesn't cut it I wanted to let you know all this and did not want to do so on FB. ;)

Thanks Patee. I have gone through a couple cycles of not-sleep and it has resolved itself inside of two weeks,

so I'm pretty thankful for that. So far I've just been riding it out when it does happen, if I find myself inside an

extended insomniac sleep cycle I will definitely consider those options.

We posted at the same time! That's great that yours resolves on it's own--hopefully an OTC or similar "home remedy" will offer a bit of relaxation.

Gotta get your sleep! B)

I've tried that counting sheep thing, but they start coming faster and faster and I get all tense trying to keep up. To keep them at a reasonable speed I have to institute military-like strictness, and who can fall asleep whilst keeping sheep in strict formation?

Ahhhh--a nice new fast 'puter! Have phun wif it B) And congrats on cleaning out the garage--we kinda dumped stuff in ours when we moved in, and are now in the process of going through everything, selling the old kitchen appliances, and phiguring out what to do with the rest.

Do you have a salad spinner?? I neeeeeed a salad spinner

:P

I wasn't FOR A MOMENT thinking of anyone roasting our yeti! ... . ....Just other, ya know... . ..wild yetis. . . . .. :huh: . . . .. . . ..... :rolleyes:

We have been LOOKING for the wild yetis at the country house!! Out on the quads. Max is DETERMINED he will find one! There's a way to look at broken tree limbs and determine the difference between Yetis and elk...

Sigh... psillies all have lives... lonely Friday night *sniff....

;)

Mine was a boring Friday night. But it was most welcome since the 24 hours leading up to it weren't so boring :rolleyes:

Ok. This is serious! I sat on the couch for a minute to check my FB and the accidental Kitty sat on my lap. That was 20 minutes ago? My wine glass is about 8 feet away on the counter! help! M is upstairs doing homework and hub is in the basement tying flys!

Text... Send email... I know I'm a few days late but this is what I do to Madeleine :P

...Actually, I kinda want bacon now...

:lol: :lol:

They say it's the vegetarian's gateway drug back into meat. My fav bar in town has bacon night on Wednesdays. At 9:30 you will find a bowl on every table and for every 2 people seated at the bar. Then this very large, jolly man comes at you with a giant stainless steel bowl FILLED with bacon! He fills your bowl, tells you what kind of 'flavor' he's made and then every 15-20 min comes back with ANOTHER bowl of a different flavor! Captain's fav was the 'peanut butter cup'... :unsure:

If it makes you feel any better, I haven't been sleeping either.

The cake and bacon help with that.... :ph34r::D

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
