Just started watching an unbelievable TV show called Touch. Posting a quote below that really resonated with me: 

 

 

"If two points are
destined to touch the universe will always find a way to make the connection.
Even when all hope seems lost certain ties cannot be broken. They define who we
are and who we become across space, across time, along paths we cannot predict.
Nature always finds a way."


I believe I was meant to meet all of you - even if it took Celiac to bring me here.

 

I'm going to start a thread for this show. If you don't watch it and have time it's extremely uplifting. The first season and beginning of second season can be found on Hulu. It airs on Fox.

 

 
Love,
Loey

That's really sweet, Loey :)

 

Second day in a row I wake up with eyes semi-closed by an allergic reaction. WHAT on earth is causing this? The only new thing I ate these nights was coconut butter, but I am usually ok with coconut in any form? I am so, so tired of this. As soon as I think I mastered one allergy, something new comes up. This sucks big time.

I am so sorry that you're having an allergic reaction. I ate something yesterday that triggered my celiac but haven't figured out what it was yet so I can totally empathize. Hang in there and take some Benadryl if you have it (or if not see if someone can pick it up for you). I usually go back to the very bare bones diet when I can't figure out the trigger but that sucks more than your reaction. Could it be another type of allergy (dust, dander, mold)?

 

Sending you a big dose of positive energy, healing (((hugs))) and love,

Loey

Not berry psilly, but berry gluten-free related if you eat food produced in the USA.

Hi GFinDC (tried typing in just gluten-free and it kept auto correcting to gluten free). Long time no talk! What is the Eli Stone Program called? Is it just Eli Stone. Been watching Zero Hour and it's not as good as Touch but still well made.  Hope  you're doing well my friend,

 

Love Loey

I can't even wear sandals because of hideous feet. One foot has a crossed bunion toe (some people cross their fingers, I cross my fingers and toes). I also have a Vulcan Sign on my other foot because my toes go into the perfect Spock Split fingers))  :blink:

Hi Loey,

 

Yep, the show title is just plain Eli Stone.  It's about a lawyer of all things.  But he i has "prophetic visions" that affect

 people around him.  Kind of fun and odd.

Thank you Loey - and I am sorry you got CC'd. My body is in alert-mode: I think what triggered the puffy eyes was a Neutrogena wash, because soon after gaining sight again I realized that my face was burnt red and sand-paper rough. It b****y hurts. To even have facial expressions. I also have a bright, boil like strip on my wrist, where I carry my watch. So, yeah, pretty much anything I use causes me a reaction.

 

On the psillie note: I am ready to baffle my baristas once again! Known in the Heights as 'the woman with the teeny-tiny travel mug' (8 ounces), I have recently got a new mug that measures 4 ounces. I feel so cool. B)

 

I have met other scholars interested in the problems I tackle in my dissertation. Weirdly enough, they are all in cybernetics. :blink: How on earth did THAT happen?

Saw this on facebook. Had to share

 

Grandmother says... Carrots, Eggs, or Coffee; "Which are you?"

A young woman went to her grandmother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for
her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give
up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem
was solved a new one arose.

Her grandmother took her to the
kitchen. She filled three pots with water. In the first, she placed
carrots, in the second she placed eggs and the last she placed ground
coffee beans. She let them sit and boil without saying a word.


In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the
carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and
placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a
bowl. Turning to her granddaughter, she asked, "Tell me what do you
see?"

"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

She
brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted
that they got soft.She then asked her to take an egg and break it.

After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.


Finally, she asked her to sip the coffee. The granddaughter smiled, as
she tasted its rich aroma. The granddaughter then asked. "What's the
point,grandmother?"

Her grandmother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity--boiling water--but each reacted differently.


The carrot went in strong, hard and unrelenting. However after being
subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had
been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior.
But, after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became
hardened.

The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water they had changed the water.

"Which are you?" she asked her granddaughter.

"When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?"

Think of this: Which am I?

Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity, do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?


Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the
heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a
financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and
stiff?

Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and a hardened heart?


Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water,
the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it
releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things
are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you.

When the hours are the darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate to another level?

So go there for and be coffee!

Thank you Loey, that's amazing! :wub: 

 

Vydor - that story is fantastic, and now I finally have a morally upright justification for my caffeine addiction. YAY! I would also add "coffee" to the survival grocery list :)

 

So... one of my hobbies is upsetting social expectations on dating websites (it started off as a joke, but I'm often considering making this into a writing project). Now, this morning I saw a loser writing this about himself:

 

"Food: The most important activity is eating. I love food. I don't date vegans, vegetarians, or people on a gluten-free diet."

 

What the effn' effe? :angry:  I wonder why you are single *facepalm*....

 

If any member of the celiac community would like to convey to this... thing... their sentiments, feel free to post your mind here.

Dating things can be hilarious.  Whe we're really bored, the bf and I sit around and read each other Craigslist ads.  One guy's post started out "Looking for a woman who can read and do finances".  Dunno.....pretty high expectations there dude....

Was he looking for a date or for an accountant??? :blink:  I like the missed connections section. Sounds like a very rude British comedy (not that there's anything wrong with that from time to time).

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
