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.

That is PHABULOUS!!! :P

I know that it might be a bit tacky of me to scream my divorce finality across the world, but I don't care. After what that man has put me through the past year, it's sad to say that last night I was happier than on the day I married him! :rolleyes:

Love you all!!

Bisquick has shortening in it, so yes you can but here's the ratio for Pamela's to shortening:

something weird happened today :blink:

I was outside shoveling (bundled up with gloves and everything) and three of my fingers on my left hand started hurting. I thought nothing of it and kept on going. I finally come in and those three fingers were simi-swollen (the third finger especially) at the ends :blink: Nothing was in the glove and they were rather big on me as well. As of the past twenty minutes two of the three are nearly back to normal and the third is still sort of swollen (its under a heating pad at the moment).

This is new :blink:

I've never had that happen before.

It may just have been how you were gripping the shovel.

Hugs shadowicewolf. Try not to think about school for a while. Your hands any better? Could it be an allergic reaction or something?

A friend of mine had a t-shirt made for me. It has my motto "my body is trying to kill me" written right on my bum. :D So next time I go running I will be a living ad for autoimmune disease awareness!

Hugs & Kisses to everyone traveling. I hope our midwesterners safely make it to their destinations. After the holiday I might start a thread on the dangers of pills covering up illnesses and how hard it is to get off of them Any comments? I've been going through wicked withdrawal off ALL meds. I know I have celiac, CLL, Epstein Barr but I came too close to killing myself because I was told to take a pill. Anyway, pardon my mini rant. I've been up all night.

If I'm offline I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday surrounded by those they love most and I'll see you next year.

Love

Loey

P.S. still planning the birthday bash on the 19th anyone near Princeton, NJ welcome for gluten-free pizza. Obviously it will be pushed back if I still feel like this.

Last day of finals for the High School and all the grade school kids have thier parties today....school cancelled. The wind is wicked. It rained before the little bit of snow, so it might be icy underneath. Glad M doesn't have to drive in it.

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
