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

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
