Ugh, my stomach has decided that sweet potato is no longer good on my stomach tonight. I got halfway through it and yep.... To my defense it was a little grainy....

You are really stressing about finals and maybe even going home. So...it might have nothing to do with the food, Hon. You will be fine.

grass...greener

I love Sonoma in the winter....too many allergens in the air for me in the Summer -- my daughter lives in Santa Rosa :)

Hubs grew up there (high school) so had already been treated for local allergens. We lived there for 20 years and he didn't have much of a problem. Move down here and it was just a sneezing chorus, and because of undiagnosed celiac - sinus infections. Densensitized again, especially for cocksfoot grass, which was originally (early settlement days) a seed crop in our area :blink::rolleyes: Durned ssttuphph is everywhere !

I think you need some phun and company in your life so you can think about something else and phorget about papers and finals (and yer stomach). Life is for living :) It's been a tough semester for you, honeybun. Now go out and have some outrageous phun !!! over Christmas B)

Shadowicewolf - I teach in college, and as a teacher I encourage you to remember that you will not think of finals on your death bed. So study and do well, but don't let it suck your life.

Technically i'ma.... 4th year.... I think part of this is stress relating to that (which generally wouldn't bother me), loosing one of my favorite professors, being sick, not sleeping, etc.

I have not been getting enough sleep and its been throwing off my routine. So hopefully with this break, i'll be back to normal :)

Thanks guys.

Great advice, Chaser! I teach, as well -- adults. They stress themselves out, I am sure, more than kids do.....I'm constantly telling them simply to do their best. You'l be just fine, Wolfie! ;)

Back from root canal. Keep in mind, I am a black belt in karate - undefeated in competitive fighting. I have had a freaking metal stake jammed in my side, and have hit an oak tree at 50+ miles per hour.

NONE OF THAT COMES CLOSE! Worst freaking pain ever! I literally jumped out of the chair a few times. :

BUT it is behind me now... I can recover now right? Just need to get a crown... dunno what that involves, but cant be worse... right?

Oh they tried their best, tried three or four different kinds of numbing agents/tricks - just I am highly resistant to the stuff.

Easy-peasy, little round thing they slip on your noggin. You may have to kneel down tho. Did ptaumn abdicate or sumfin? :)

Ifn it was a dental crown, they just take a mold and make it in the lab with all the other cyborg parts. Glue it on and shine a bright light in your mouth to set the glue and fry your tonsils. The glue tastes really good too! Try not to swallow it all before they zap it with the light.

If the anti-know stuff don't wurk you can always apply your own anti-aesthetic at home before going to the butcher, I mean dentist. Best to have someone else drive tho.

They put your tooth on your behind? Is that the part that hurts the worse - like you're sitting on a hard pea every time?

The hard part is over. The crowning is painless. Been there more than once. A crown sculptured to match the drilled tooth is made and attached to the tooth using a strong adhesive. No drilling. No pain. :)

I'm here, after being distracted for a while. It has been a busy and stressful couple of weeks. Some of you know from Facebook, and my moderator colleagues know as well.

My father-in-law was taken to hospital December 4 because he was suddenly vomiting blood. His health had been in a slow, steady decline for a while. On Saturday evening, he passed away peacefully in his sleep. We got a phone call just before midnight.

The funeral was this afternoon. The weather was cool, but the sun shone brightly. The service was held in a small church built in the nineteenth century. Bob planned the service himself a few years ago. In his instructions, he said: "Lots of music, nothing sad. I have done very well. I could have been buried in Holland, 1945 along with 3,000 other Canadians."

In attendance were Bob's widow, son and three daughters, two grandsons and four granddaughters, two great granddaughters, two sons-in-law and his daughter-in-law. Many other family and friends joined us.

May God continue to bless you, Bob.

My condolences to you, Peter.

Shadowicewolf, how are you doing now with the end of the semester?

(I have a truckload of essays to grade, and I am thinking of giving a bunch of default A+ as a sign of protest. Except that maybe then I would be fired.)

Thanks! The first two were good, one was actually awesome. I will miss this seminar - I had a wonderful group. Have been receiving grateful and heartfelt emails for the past couple of days, which is pretty moving. Yeah, I am a softie.

Personally, I think there should be no grades.

Sorry to hear about your loss. I am glad Bob's funeral went well, it makes such a difference when you know they would have been happy with it.

Take it easy x

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
