I'm sick of being sick :(

My stomach has decided to rebel and give me "D" for the second day in a row. My head feels like its in a fog. My indigestion seems to think that its a wonderful time to act up. I keep going from hot to cold and back again. My throats sorta sore and red. yet.... above all....

I have no fever....

I had to avoid going to my last class yesterday due to my stomach (all it took was a sip of water... <_< ).

At least its the weekend... but still.....

Hi dear psillies. We made it through the night with no power outages. Not out of the woods yet but we're supposedly more than 3/4 through the blizzard. Next issue is high tide. As I mentioned we're on a hill but still crossing fingers that we remain unscathed. DH will have a huge workout when he clears the driveway (no snowblower and he doesn't want to pay someone while unemployed). I thought he said a power generator was $1,500 but he wants to get one for the entire house and that will cost $!5,000. So .. next windfall that's the plan. How long until that happens is another story. I choose to remain optimistic. :D

Well this will be brief as I've been up since 1AM. I became fascinated with the "thunder-snow." Today will be a "timed" nap (don't want to sleep too long). If I don't take a nap I'm sure I'll be ready for bed by 6 or 7 and then I'll be up early again.

Hope you are all safe and warm.

Lots of extra hugs,

Loey

P.S. Hmmm .. wonder why the ad saying NEVER EAT has an arrow pointing to me?

So my son's team just won their basketball game - 37 to 14. My son got to play in all four quarters, which is really cool because he is the weakest player on the team (he never played any team sport at all before). Usually he plays maybe 1 quarter, and that is it.

So while I feel bad for the other team, I glad they lost so badly that coach could give the weakest players on his our team some game time.

So sorry that you're feeling so poorly. I hope whatever it is goes away FAST!!!! Sending you lots of healing hugs and a big steaming bowl of gluten-free Jewish Penicillin.

Love,

Loey

'shroom, I LOL'd... I always visit home (Italy) in the Summer, so it's really just a question of driving across the country. I got fed up of waiting for the announcement of the American leg of the tour, and worried there wouldn't be a NYC date in the Fall - which would have meant no date for me, since I have to teach in the fall - so... :wub::ph34r:

<------------ THIS. Meaning my avatar. I was brought up listening to Depeche Mode: pretty somber for a toddler, but hey, my brothers also read Poe and Lovecraft to me, so I guess that fits the picture. Synthesizers were my favourite toys when I was four or five (we had some around the house). :ph34r:

So (this question is for the ladies) you know how you've always been told that exercise

will help your cramps? Yeah, that's a bunch of CRAP. I just did major cardio shoveling

and it's WAY worse. I feel like the people in the Aliens movies, something's about to come

bursting out of there! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

Maybe it's exercise for weeks before the cramps? The only thing that helped when mine were bad was a hot pad and some muscle relaxant they used to give in the previous century.

I am sorry you feel so miserable; but glad the pain left your powers of description unscathed. :)

I think it was not the exercise, but the temperature. Cold, even if you were well-wrapped, is never good for cramps. I am one of the lucky folks for whom the "exercise prescription" worked: I'd do a round of crunches and leg lifts and I'd be as good as new in 5-10 minutes. Maybe it only works with certain types of exercise - and shoveling is not one of them.

Hope you feel better today.

I think the exercise just keeps your mind off of it for a few minutes. I'm with K - handfuls of drugs.

Are these menstrual cramps we're talking about? Yes, for me exercise does little to nothing. Extra-strength Ibuprofen does it all.

Gluten cramps.....well, nuttin' helps with those......except time..... ((((sigh)))....

That may be it- it was about 42-43 degrees, in the sun shoveling I got so warm I had to strip

a few of those layers of wrapping! Clearly, shoveling is not one of the 'recommended exercises'.

:lol: :lol:

I'm pretty sure it's stress that's made the past few months worse. Which is frustrating because

I've kept my diet super-clean, 90% organic, grain-free, sugar-free..... Any you ladies dealt with

super-sucky periods from stress? Any advice? :huh:

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
