I would love to do that! I want to meet all of my psillies!

Love,

Loey :wub: :wub: :wub:

Wouldn't it be great if we could all take a cruise together? We took a cruise to Alaska before I got sick. I'm determined to come back fighting with a vengence and be stronger than ever!!!! I want to meet all of you psilly people in person.

BTW, I'll be in NJ either the weekend of January 19th or the following weekend. I'm throwing a big party for Rob's 50th, Tony's 21st and me being alive. It will be at Romeo's pizzeria in Plainsboro NJ. Anyone who can make it let me know. Plainsboro is next to Princeton. And yes they have gluten-free pizza & Pasta. It' my last big splurge with my inheritance from my 1st husband's mother. After that I have to buckle down.

OK, rather stay on forum and I might be back but the withdrawal is pretty awful. I have 327 emails to go through. I'll probably do more Xmas/Chanukah shopping. Buying Tony gifts for his trip to Israel. He'll be home Thursday and leave Sunday for 10 days. I'm gving him prayers for the wall and they'll be one for all of you.

Love,

Loey

A racing sailboat, the name Nizam she bore

With owner/skipper 'Hargie' and a crew of four.

The boat was fast, the crew were 'ept'

And other boats in her wake she left.

Forty knots of wind, no big deal,

Up on the rail, guys, she's got too much heel.

So those were the sailing days of yore

And one of the crew was my ex-brother-in-law.

But her glory has faded, her crew have too!

And the time has come to say adieu.

Hargie went first, because he was the oldest

Struck down in October last;

Alllan came next, although always the boldest,

His service was the Friday just past.

Neice Jane said to her navigator dad

Come to the funeral and don't be sad

But dad said I'll soon be attending my own

And so be it, this Friday - his spirit has flown!

A proud, bold crew who hung together

And intent on joining each other forever.

RIP Jim.

silly pages is better format for chat...the new chat has too many folks looking for celiac disease info

Yep, just a little organization is needed so we don't have five different conversations interspersed amongst each other. (like I just did before I corrected - you can quickly lose the context). But then, maybe we is too old; however, methinks, with feets like dat, Bunnie is barely hatched. :D

Thanks for all your sympathies. It's funny, it has affected me in ways I did not ever contemplate. I never tried to write a poem for someone before :wacko: I just hope they all get to go sailing together again :rolleyes::)

Jack-e if you are still hanging in yhe sillies -- very sorry for your loss too. Peter shared the wonderful service your Dad planned -- must have been one special man.

He was a good Dad. He taught us a love of reading which is something we'll always have as a reminder of him. He also taught me how to be financially responsible and he gave my brother an unbeknownst lead in to one of the best lines ever.

And here is the story that goes with the line: When we were younger my parents would rent a cottage for 2-3 weeks in Hastings. The cottage was very basic. Electricity but no running water or heat. If we needed water we went down to the Trent River to get some or the well for drinking water. If you needed heat late in the evenings you used the wood stove. One year we forgot flashlights. We needed river water and it was after sunset. My mom asked someone to get some and Dad said he'd get it cause he knew the layout of the docks and such. Time passed and Dad came back up to the back door and asked my Mom to open the door and put some papers down on the floor. Mom asked 'What happened'. Dad replied 'I walked into the river'. Nobody said a word except my brother. My brother being who he is and was said 'What did you do Dad forget your Jesus Boots' It still something I can vividly see and hear after 35+years.

JACQUIE'S GOT BALLS! :huh:

My lips are sealed on that one :D

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
