YES Indeed Bunny!

My five year plan is finding cholesteral and blood pressure meds that makes me feel "GOOD". Still not a happy camper! Feel free to PM me suggestions.... :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

Hmm, you're asking quite a bit there, lady ;) Better call on your good fairies for help, I'd say. Course, you could always say that valium improves your blood pressure (probably does!)

Five year plans?? Dear gawd.... . :unsure: .. .. ...I have trouble planning my day.

I admire so much people who do this....actively map out where they want to be in a set time.

I'm so lucky, and life is currently so great for me, that I guess it's just full steam ahead, trying to keep this fabulous status quo going.

Forty Year Plan: Continuing to keep any and all diabetes complications completely at bay. This has been my life plan for many years, but it's nice to actually see it written out...

Man, it ain't sailing around the globe..... :( . . .. . ....perhaps I could add this to the plan. Not an easily do-able combination, I fear -- very tough to perform constant blood tests and insulin injections during the famous South Pacific swells....I'd be jabbin' everything BUT me arm or leg........ . :rolleyes:

A 5 year plan? Hmmm.

I found my first grey hair on 12/21/2012.

My son is 13. So for the next 5 years I will be busy raising a young man to adulthood.

My daughter is 10. So I am raising a young woman. (These are considered the toughest years for a female.)

Trying to stay healthy. Keep up with the husband and kids. Knit some stuff for fun and gifts. (Looking in to "prayer shawl" or "Operation Linus" I think it adds some mystery to knitting. I'm going to try a special little shrug sweater that is for mastectomy recovery, haven't found the right yarn yet.)

5 years, hmmm.

Getting 2 small children going through school, seeing if I can rebuild my health to get back to part time work. I would love to take a 6 month sabbatical when the kids are old enough to appreciate it, and travel as a family. I''ll be sure to pop by if I am passing :

Edited to add, mommida, the shawls and blankets are such a lovely idea x

I have to admit I am intrigued by the prayer shawl. I bought a clearance Prayer Shawl book, because the patterns looked soo easy. I did not expect the personal stories would be so interesting. The story on page 59 caught my interest. A wounded soldier at Walter Reed was asked what he had wrapped around him. He said he didn't know, someone just gave it to him. He likes it because it keeps him warm. He then added a confession to the monk, he hears praying voices when he wears it.

Even if I only make 1 a year, I think it will be worth it.

I think I'll take my chances ;):P

In 10 years Max, God willing, will graduate from high school and then other than an occasional birthday party, wedding, etc. here and there, there will be NO reason to have to speak with or deal with Jesse. THAT, my friends, will be a big part of that happily ever after!! :D

Coconut, since I cannot have almonds because they make me drowsy. I think it was 55 grams of coconut for 2 cups of egg whites - plus some salt, baking powder, xantan and psyllium... You get six 6-inch bagels. The texture is a bit odd if you are looking for a chewy, dense bagel, but I am not fan of chewiness, so I appreciate their crunchy, golden crust and airy inside. Yum!

BC--thanks! (I can access the board now from my computer, but have problems posting after a quote :blink: ) Even now, I can't "return" to form paragraphs, but I digress :D I'm the opposite of you--allergic to coconut, but eat loads of almond. Since I also prefer light, crispy bagels (like Udi's), I bet I'd like those--will try with almond flour :) .

Glad to help :) I think you will have to play around a bit with the proportions: coconut is high in fibre and absorbs a lot of moisture, so it requires more egg than almond flour.

I simply poured the mixture in my donut pan. I know that's not how you make bagels, and I used to make-boil-and-bake my own back in the days, but I personally don't think I could make a coconut batter that would be good for boiling.

Let me know how it goes!

I'm way behind on posts. Still thinking about my five year plan and responding to the posts I haven't read. The party was beyond my expectations (except I wish it was nearer to some psillies- I'm determined to start meeting my dear forum friends). It wiped me out for a week because, as usual, i OVERDID IT (big surprise). hey, I was celebrating two special birthdays (3) and my living! Didn't cost quite as much as i expected so we can throw Tony a nice party with his friends at Brown for his official 21st. He only had 3 friends at the party but he more than made up for quantity with quality. These friends either waited a week to go back to school (the theater major parlayed it into an assignment) and the other 2 drove back from school.

Anyway, since thee isn't a set psillie group email and i don't have everyone's I wanted to share this with everyone in case I didn't have your email to send it to:

    • Just a quick one to say I got a diagnosis of celiac disease today. I know in the past it's been helpful for me to know the outcome for other folk, so thought I would update. The moral of this story is even with a VERY borderline blood test it's worth persisting. thanks for all the help Sue 
    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.)
