I hope all of you in the path of the latest storm (is this one Q and when the H!@# did they start naming snowstorms?). I'll keep you all in my prayers. Right now it looks like we're just getting rain and snow but I don't trust Accuweather as much as the Weather Channel. We could be in for it. I kept the number of the snowplow guy in case of another Nemo. Superman is great at shoveling but when it's the size of Nemo it's just too much.

 

DH went grocery shopping for me and bought all the ingredients to make paella (he even read all labels since what I originally put on shopping list had soy in it - my worst trigger). We're getting close with a couple up the street and we've been planning a trip to Newport with them that keeps getting put off because of snow and cold temps. We went to their house last Sunday and I invited them over for paella this Sunday. Haven't made it in years - fingers crossed. It is so nice to have a couple we really relate to. They were original Pfizer transfers from Michigan before they got laid off so there's a real connection.

 

STAY SAFE!!!!!

 

Love,

Loey

Its nice to have a snow day. This is only the second time in all of my years here. It takes a lot for my school to cancel :) But right now the official snow count is 5-8 inches out there. When i watched the news earlier, they said it felt like 0. And then the wind :blink: I have no doubt there are snow dunes moving about.

You go Vincent!!! We've been having trouble with our washer and DH has to literally pull it out and take it apart. The most recent time it was not letting us unlock the door and the clothes were still soaking in suds. The first time we had a repairman come and it cost $160 for him to show DH where to go to fix it. This time he was determined to fix it himself. After an hour he discovered a color catcher sheet was clogging the hoses. Hopefully your blow torch fixed the problem. I pheel for you.

 

Hugs,

Loey

So far so good! No leaks! Fire work good!

When you're an old lady, it's hard to wear a short skirt if your nipples are going to show underneath it.

Serves me right.... Been feeling good, got most of my problem food groups back, don't seem to be as sensitive to cc...... you know what's coming... lol

Had to stop at CVS to get a card and saw the Snickers beckoning to me in the check out line. I figured, what the heck-- ..... 2 hours later the cramps started. Right on schedule. What an idiot.

lol!! It was good, though.

I hold on to clothes too. I am determined this spring to go through and donate what I realistically don't wear anymore -- I don't have as much closet space as I used to.

You are not an idiot. I picked up some homeopathic pills to deal with the UTI pain (ladies {and gentlemen} you know the side effects of antibiotics on females). It said it contained trace elements of soy protein (my worst trigger is soy) and I took it anyway. Wound up sending DH to CVS to get me Benadryl after he was dressed for bed. My lip had started to swell. So, if anyone's an idiot it's me! At least Snickers taste good. BTW, I hope your cramps are gone and I'm glad that that you enjoyed the Snickers. We all sometimes have to feed a craving. 

 

Love & Healing hugz,

Loey

 

P.S. I also lifted the laundry basket when it was overflowing  :blink: (a big NO-NO for my back) and pulled it out a little. I wanted to at least start folding laundry before Superman got home from CVS. Now I'm headed back to the chiropractor. I was ready to go to every two weeks and now I'm seeing her two days in a row. I know she'll straighten me out (no pun intended).  :lol:

Ouch! Low!! Hope the chiro fixes ya up:). Ugh, soy in the Homeopathics.. I use a few things by Boiron-- the only carriers I've seen with them are lactose and fructose.

The only symptom I got from the Snickers was cramps. A few hours worth, but that was about it. Amazing!

Glad it was just cramps although those ain't no picnic. Hope you've recovered already. The chiro did a great job and said I caught it in time. 

 

When in doubt, always have benadryl on hand.

 

:D  that's something I always had in the house when DS lived here.

We do have the best men on this forum. I'm pretty lucky on the home front as well. OK, let's see how my first multi-quote experience turned out.

I'll touch base later. Superman is ready to taste my lentil stew.

 

Love & Hugz,

Loey

 

P.S. I finally crossed into the thousands and I didn't even notice   :blink:

Any of the "best men" of this forum still single? :D

 

Speaking of which - one of my smartest freshmen proposed, was accepted, and is now getting married: darn them kids, they always make me feel warm and fuzzy! Feeling old in the age of Facebook.

    • Hi everyone, I've been reading this forum sporadically and have some questions of my own. I'm in my 40s and was diagnosed with celiac last December by biopsy and blood work after months of tests by my primary and then a gastro. My husband, around the same age as me, was dx'd with stage 4 cancer a month later, so admittedly it's took me longer than I'd have liked to learn about celiac. Now I feel pretty on top of my diet. I mostly make my own food - proteins and veggies, with some certified gluten-free snacks in the mix - and am pretty strict about what I will/won't eat at friend's houses or in restaurants (I prefer to go to dedicated gluten-free kitchens whenever possible). I'm doing okay on the diet, but still getting glutened every so often, usually when I let me guard down outside the home. I also periodically see my primary and a naturopath (who happens to have celiac!), but still, I have many questions if anyone would care to answer:

      -FATIGUE. I'm still so tired, fatigued so much of the time. My doctors blame this on the stress of my husband's diagnosis and my periodic trouble sleeping. But even during weeks where I'm sleeping enough (8-10 hrs a day), eating right, exercising as I can, trying to keep stress at bay, I'm still so bleeping tired. Maybe not when I wake up, but by late afternoon. Often my legs even feel weak/wooden. Has anyone else experienced greater fatigue early on after being diagnosed? This will pass, yes? I know I could cut out the sweets and that could help, but also, being a caregiver is hard and sometimes it's nice to eat your feelings between therapy sessions.  

      -SYMPTOMS CAUSED BY FATIGUE? Sometimes I'll have other "feels like I've been glutened" symptoms if I haven't gotten enough sleep, though I'm trying so hard to sleep at least 8 hours a night these days. Hasn't happened in a while thankfully, but there was a point this summer where my insomnia was bad and my arms were achy and I had some crazy flank/back pain I'd never experienced before. For weeks. Doctor ordered me to sleep sleep sleep, taking Benedryl if needed. I did, and the symptoms went away, but weird, yes? Has this happened to you? I ask because I want to make sure I'm getting all strange pains tested to the full extent if there's a chance it's something other than celiac. I do sometimes still feel that strange side stitch after a CC incident.

      -SKIN PROBLEMS. I have had a smidge of eczema since I was a teen and it - and the dermatitis herpetiformis I've acquired with my dx - are out of control right now. I recognize the connection with stress, but also, has anyone found any great natural remedies for DH to stop the itching? I've tried so many useless ointments and medicated creams, a number of them given to my by a dermo months ago. I see my naturopath this week, but thought I'd ask here too.

      -MOSTLY gluten-free KITCHEN GOOD ENOUGH? My husband is supportive of my diet and mostly eats gluten free meals with me, but we still keep a gluten-y toaster for him and the gluten-y dog food in a corner of the kitchen and he still makes the occasional meal with gluten for himself on his own cookware (ravioli, pizza, mac n cheese, etc). Or sometimes I make eggs/toast and the like for him when he's too sick to move. Otherwise, we're militant about how we cook, which cookware we use, etc. He even has a kitchen nook off our den where he makes sandwiches. But sometimes I wonder if having two separate sponges in our shared-ish main kitchen is enough and I should just banish all gluten whatsoever from the kitchen. I can't be the only one with a mixed kitchen, right? How do you do it if you have a mixed-eating family?

      Thank you so much!  
    • Hang in there!  Count your blessings.  Do something you like to do and relax. I know that is hard to do as a young mother (as I sit here in the kitchen sipping coffee quietly as my teenager is sleeping in after a late football game last night where she marched in 90 degree plus weather in full uniform).   But seriously, take a few minutes to relax!  
    • Meredith, this is very true. A colonoscopy is for diagnosis of the lower intestine, endoscopy for the upper intestine.  How did your doctor interpret the tests? I suggest you read the link Cycling Lady gave you because it contains a lot of good information. 
    • Sorry, but this product (supplement) is not even certified gluten free.   Seems odd that a product geared to Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance would not take the extra step of getting certified.   I guess I am a Nervous Nellie, especially after the reports that several probiotics were contaminated with gluten.   https://celiac.org/blog/2015/06/probiotics-your-friend-or-foe/
    • Thank you for posting that. I've had a lot of that bloodwork done and everything is normal. At the peak of this belly bug I had blood work done and my white count was fine. I think it's just my health anxiety scaring me into thinking this is something scarier (to me) than celiac. Maybe the anxiety will subside once I go gluten-free. The anxiety is brutal.
