Pity Party
0

9 posts in this topic

I broke down and had a pity party today. I'm sick with a cold thanks to body unable to fight it off due to the 60mg/day prednisone due to allergic reaction (poss. Wheat). On the way home from work, I just felt Soooo bad and wanted comfort food (I.e. kids cheeseburger meal-fast food). I cried, but didn't stop, came home and took a nap. Today was just so hard, then DH is nice enough to tell me he got him something from there. Uggh men!

We all have the occasional pity party. I've been known to have some pretty epicly bad moments myself. Seriously though, what business did he really have going out for fast food when if he had any sense at all he would have read your mind and known you were having a bad day craving it? I swear, men never learn. And then they wonder why we're grumpy. :P

I think you should pat yourself on the back for not getting really mean.

One thing about pity parties is...they do not last very long when there aren't many guests. :D

Hope you feel better soon!!

If I were you, I'd have a go at a carton of Haagen Das ice cream (if you can eat it ?)

and not share a single spoonful with Mr. Wisearse.

If you can't have ice cream, sorbet is always a great option! I indulge frequently, and have the hips to prove it. :ph34r: I've been tempted a few times to try ice cream substitutes but I don't want something that pretends to be something it isn't, which is why I go for sorbet. It is what it is, and doesn't lie to me about it. Perfect for pity parties!

So once upon a time there was a woman whom had successfully removed gluten from her family's life -- yet one person in particular would still crunch and munch on WHEAT THINS in front of this Princess (yes....now she is Royal and said Toad was crunching her former favorite snack cracker).

This was a Princess that loved to bake so she made a sinful chocolate-dark chocolate chip cake with fudge candy topping and set in the center of the dinning room table -- oh on top of the cake in sparkly green frosting "Lisa's Treat - DO NOT TOUCH"

Moral of the story -- the Toad and the Tadpoles of the house no longer crunch without checking this Princess's mood!

Seriously -- it gets better -- but on the bad days our loved ones should tiptoe thru gluten gardens.

Hang in there :)

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
