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.

My toes do this when I wear my Uggs with no socks on freezing days. No idea why. Saturday it was 1 foot and it was hot, swollen and itchy. then it goes away... :blink:

Wow. You must be so proud, that is fantastic :)

Very!! It's hard though bc her brother struggles and has to work very hard. I'm careful to give her the kudos she deserves without making him feel like he's not as smart as her. The thing is, he's sooooo smart, school is just harder for him.

It could just be that he doesn't learn the way school teaches. Might have to work at teaching him to teach himself.

Yay! Well done shadowicewolf! A completely random question for you - is there any natural red food coloring you can have? I am looking for natural reds I can use for a red cake...

Thanks :lol:

I haven't tried it, but beets should be okay, the juice is used in red velvet cakes. Generally those ones, from my understanding, are used in place of the chemical or bug made ones :blink:

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!

LOL

I agree. He is also a perfectionist. Math comes easy, reading does not. I don't constrict him to the table for homework. As long as he's working somewhere quiet, I let him get comfortable. You should see him when he's reading at home-he's literally rolling all over the place. I also let him read silently by himself for 15 min before he reads the same passages to me. Helps with his confidence and thus his fluency. He has a wonderful teacher and I meet with her frequently as well as his reading teachers. It DOESN'T help that I'm the only one that works with him. His dad can't fit it into 'his' schedule. I'm doing everything I can...

Congratulations!!!! :D

M learns best when he is moving or listening to music with a beat. This seems to be a boy thing. He was fortunate to have some teachers, 2-5 grade, who let kids stand at their desks and fidget as long as they didn't bother anyone. His 3 rd grade teacher knew he was interested in animals and gave him a book of animal hero stories. He would do his out loud reading to the dog. Maybe Simon would like to hear some stories? Animals don't correct their reading or roll their eyes like an older sibling if they mess up a word.

J never liked to read. He would do his required reading off the Internet. He would read the rules of cricket or tennis or the differences and benefits of a brushless motor or video game cheats and strategies.

It's a girl thing, too. The good news is that you can make it to grad school even if you can't sit down still. I mean, I did still nicely in class, but I pace when I read/think, and "chair dance" when I am writing/dancing :P to the perplexity of my colleagues.

Not for nothing, I am writing a diss on the physiology of body movement in reading/writing techniques :ph34r:

A tip. I was never a reader before i got into the Harry potter series (then it took off). Try to find things that would catch his interest, be it cars, bugs, or something else. :)

ButterflyChaser that diss sounds very interesting :)

When I was working I used to take copious notes in meetings and workshops, and in lectures as a student. I almost never read them again, but if I didn't do it I remembered nothing. It was like I had to 'code' the words via movement.

I have 50 pages of research punning the word "hang" in every possible way except the obvious obscene ones. Now, that was a feat.

I am the same way with notes. I think it is a form of body memory. Not a neuroscientist really, but I think it has to do with the way in which you have to process sound into writing/visuals via your body movement.

Most excellent. I used to teach about theories of humor and comedy, from Freud to The Simpsons. Punning is my favorite. I think my dyslexia helps. :o

I write down the power point (even if the professor gives it out) and take recordings of the lectures.

As a special ed teacher I think you've been doing everything right in the role you play in helping your children's individualities. Don't let anyone ever make you feel like anything but a stellar role model! (and if they do send them to me!!!!!!)

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
