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?

Please tell me you had them give ya extra numb shots. I've been known to wear out between them. Did it before on a cavity fix. No fun. Got praised as a tough one though.

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

    • 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  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
