Well, this is from real life: at the entrance to the funeral home/cemetery near me, the big, austere, stone-surrounded sign at the main entryway says, "Drive carefully.....we'll wait"....

At least around year 2001ish, there really was a hair salon in the Pittsburgh area that was named "Shirley's Curl Up and Dye."  I would always laugh on it when we took a certain road it was on.  LOL

check, check, check for Irish and check, check, check, check for karen

 

anyone else want to play stump the emergency pack....well one of those checks for karen is a pair of comfy shorts rather than undies...my dear aunt gert drilled it into us...lever leave home without spare panties in your purse -- that is an embarrassing practice when you are raising little boys that are digging through your bag for a snack (cuz there was always one -- long before i had ever heard the word celiac).

I don't leave the house without a package of wet wipes  :ph34r: and an emergency stash of meds.  Thinking I'll have to add the bottle of wine to my go bag.  I don't know why I didn't think of that....it's so obvious  B)

wipes - check, but were dried out

meds - had to add the silly epi to the go bag thus the reason for today's inspection -- figured if I had to add epi, i would take the opportunity to add wine -- which is what I am about to do to my day

 

pouring now :)

If you are pouring your your wine into a glass, and it is not full:

If you think the glass is half full, you are an optimist.

If you think it is half empty, you are a pessimist.

If you believe that the glass is the wrong size, you are an engineer!

Engineer here...just went to a larger glass...cuz I spilled a touch from the last pour. Now I have a large glass...half full ;)

Edited to add...'tween pours I got the pool plumbing hooked back up again and bathed the dog ... Poor thing has been scared of water her whole life and is now 15 and has skin eby-jeebies...we splashed around in a warm epsom bath and she seems to be happy now.

Added fun...the salt water chlorine generator has an alarm issue....perfect water salivation and copper levels....but the generator is still unhappy...thankful for amazon prime right now...new generator to arrive mañana :)

I drop my drinks so often, my husband made me buy a bunch of those lidded insulate cups with straws, and I like their protection so much, I only use those if I am away from the kitchen table!  Kind of sad, but it works!

 

Being all anal retentive and OCD, you would crack up at the stuff I kept on me at all times.  My car has two ice scrapers, tire pressure thing, spare cords and chargers, an emergency baggie with floss, q tips, tampons, bandaids, wet wipes, alcohol wipes, hair ties, pen... i keep a brush and floss picks in there (i like to floss, a lot.) and an emergency roadside kit.  None of these things are visible, all neatly tucked away in my pretty car that I like to keep very clean because I don't like dirty things.

 

My purse is a greater extension of all that... lol... but the #1 thing I never leave home without is HAND SANITIZER!!!  I'm a serious germaphobe and pretty much die inside if I don't have it when I need it.

Check on all that except the thing my husband used to "love" picking up at the store before I lost that plumbing ;)

Was joking with hubs tonight...I think I could build a crude tent with emergency blankets and duct tape....and outfit it pretty well...all with my emergency response team pack....of course I am no longer sure I could carry it a great distance.

Omg......I am exactly, ridiculously, frighteningly the opposite. Do I actually even have ONE ice scraper in my car?.... :unsure: ....not sure......Umbrella?....Jumper cables?....emergency candles/blankets.....?.....I would be a pathetic mess if suddenly stranded on an isolated stretch. And my PURSE, well......no feminine products (actually, got them in my gym bag).....no band-aids (always asking DH for one -- always in his wallet....he is the ex-boy scout, OCD-ready-for-armageddon type), minimal makeup....no hand sanitizer. I remain a germ-covered, makeup-less, food-between-my-teeth miscreant.....Gawd, how do I keep friends?   :rolleyes:

We've got a dual- anality (I think I just made that word up)  thing going on here. J and I both have "kits".

We now live where you must keep a "disaster kit" for hurricane season. Being a celiac requires advance thinking for travel anyway, so

I've got a "got-to" bag anyway, so I just added to it a bit. His has bottled water, tools, duct tape, batteries, flashlights--seriously, how many flashlights do you really need? apparently 10 or so. (Now this made sense when we lived in the remote countryside, but here? )

Mine has shelf-stable food, hand mirror and small bag with er, grooming materials LOL--waaa? I like to look good in any weather,-the famous TP--I think the TP thing is ingrained having had issues all my life until DX lol--1 change of clothes for both of us--which is a tee shirt, shorts and undies lol, paper towels. Things like that.

Yes, the car has items like this too--all the time---bandaids, paper towels, flashlight< see what I mean?-- stash cash, car cell phone charger, beach shoes. 

And of course, now Bella the cat has to have a "got-go" bag too.  :lol: right next to her carrier in case of evacuation. (note to self: get kitty cat valium.....)

Shake flashlights! Even better than solar because, when you need the solar flashlight it's been sitting in a dark " go bag" or under your car seat. These things you shake them up and they work.

    • 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. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)
