I should be able to.

Right now i'm still dealing with this cold, my ears are itching deep within and so is my throat. Ugh, I love you cereal for getting this started (it should be noted that i have no issues with milk or ceral, when i get sick like this generally my throat and ears itch). Its decreased to mostly my ears but still <_<

You might get some relief from the cold doing a hydrogen peroxide soak in your ears once a day,

and when my ears get itchy I put a little olive oil in them. It's soothing and virucidal.

I use hydrogen peroxide too. My inner ear gets itchy whenever my body is flaring. Never heard of olive oil - will give that a try next time.

Shadow- so sorry to hear of your professor's passing. If you are feeling up to it get to the memorial - it doesn't take away the loss, but certainly helps process it.

Hoping you are feeling strong very soon.

I had a wicked earwax impaction, and had been putting a drop of olive oil in each ear

and squidging it around by mushing that ear flap thing that covers the hole every

day for two weeks, and finally saw the ENT doc, and he said it was actually quite

a good idea and made the removal much less traumatic than it would have

been otherwise, and it's also a very good idea when your ears feel dry/itchy inside

when sick or in the winter. So the internets gave me the idea, but the ENT doc

gave it a thumbs up. Don't get much better than that! I soak a q-tip in olive oil, stick

it just inside the ear canal, and then press it against the side to squeeze out the oil.

I should put it in a dropper, that would be easier.

Vinyl is back! My 19 year old is collecting now -- bought him a turn table last Christmas with USB connection so they can transfer their vinyl to digital...yep...stay tuned we are not as old as we thought - well that may be going a bit too far ;)

The current vinyl comes in a wide variety of colors, transparent, opaque, etc. -- not the solid black of yesteryear - kinda cool.

I have all of my parents' vinyl from the 50's thru 70's! I CHERISH them!!! Lots of Beatles 45s!

Yeah, i'm planning on it now.

I've heard of olive oil and have done peroxide before. I was one of those kids that had ear infections every other week it seemed. It stopped once i moved away from FL. Hmmmm....

Since you all are talking about wax, and it's getting to be the cold and dry air time of year,..

You can make a hand/skin lotion very easily. Just get some beeswax and melt it with a little olive oil. Stir it and let it cool. The oil will keep it soft or even liquidy if you add enough. That's all there is to it. Unless you want to add wonderful additional ingredients, like lemon scent or exotic sounding oils or what not. It's very easy to make a lotion this way. Before applying lotion you should rinse your hands with plain water to moisturize the skin. Then apply the lotion to seal the moisture in.

This is the end of your public service announcement.

thanks :)

I found out from another history professor of mine that the vice chancellor of my school maybe doing a memorial for my late professor. I'm planning on attending if i can. She helped me so much and i figured it would only be a good thing for me to attend.

I'll be out of sorts for the next few days, no doubt. Times like these are when i really appreciate this forum.

so sorry to hear of your loss. We are all sending you condolences and warm fuzzy hugs.

Love,Loey

be happier with all the snugglin' I'm getting!

Please get some snuggles in for me. Found out today I have a heavy duty case of Epstein Barr to add to my list of ailments. At least I know why I nap so frequently.

Hugz,

Wolfie, I am so sorry to hear about your professor. A memorial would be a good thing...it often is for many..... . ..

I think I'll make that PROCLAMATION FOUR.

Well, King Ptaoughmnn, I know what Proclamation Five needs to be. At least, The Ripper has requested this:

Please proclaimeth THAT:

"EPT" is a word.

. . ....and that we all need to start using it.

He has realized that the word "inept" exists, but no contrary condition.

While I am quite ept at spotting dangling participles, mathS remains a place where I stumble madly about.....

It's decided.

In honoUr of the admirable efforts & all-around eptness of The Ripper & cohorts in the production of Woody Allen's Don't Drink The Water [ohbummeritwontshowimg]http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151309767266043&set=a.10150151170591043.343333.558001042&type=1&relevant_count=1

******PROCLAMATION smileys-king-741814.gif FIVE******

As a useful contrast to the word Inept, Ept is officially Royally Recognized as its opposite & has been added to the Psillyville Royal Dictionary.

Or will be added. Did it get left in the other thread? So little time to pack . .. whaddaya grab first?

If the Psillllyville Royal Dictionary did, in fact, get left behind in the mad retreat to Psillyville 2, methinks it could be recreated. If we each contribute one word per day, and put someone (not me, she says quickly) in charge of the compilation thereof, should be done in no time. We already have two words today, ept and clement in nonalphabetical order. I will post my contribution shortly.

    • 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!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
