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:

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
