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

Haha, it's not a baby of mine, two friends of mine have now had their babies and I couldn't

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.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
