Posts I've Made

In Topic: Small Rant

25 November 2007 - 09:15 PM

I live with my sister and she always leaves crumbs around. Somehow they get everywhere and she thinks I am paranoid by insisting that even one crumb can cause trouble.

Yesterday she made me some relish from beets I prepared earlier. She made a big fuss about not using malt vinegar in them. I told her red vinegar would be fine because the beets were red. She still fussed about not using the malted variety. Anyway today I had diahrrea so something must have crept in somewhere. I am dreading her making her christmas shortbreads.


In Topic: Getting My Granddaughter Soon - Yikes!

She has had a lot of change in her life. It is hard having been an only child and now having 3 other kids to deal with. This was not her decision and she needs help. Instead she feels she is being punished for being grumpy. I would be too if I was her.

You will get further by givng her love and understanding than by making her write assignnments on gluten issues. Encourage her to talk about the way she feels and try not to be dismissive or judgemantal, just listen. Tell her you care so much about her that she is NEVER allowed non gluten treats at home or out. Tell her you trust her to remain gluten free. Also tell the teachers at school.

I have a sister who everytime I tell her how I feel about some issue, tells me to stop focusing on it and that's not right so forget it. All I want is for her to listen to me and not force her perspective onto me.

Being gluten free can be hard enough without being shunted off to the rellies, no matter how nice they are.

In Topic: Baby And Husband With Symptoms

I am no expert in this, but you say your husband has psoriasis? That is a spondyloarthopathy.
I believe that spondyloarthopathies and celiac are both HLA diseases and both are related to gut problems. That's all I know. If you could get your other children tested, I would.

Oh great thats anther symptom I have. I was diagnosed with spondylitis and acording to the site linked they are all much of a muchness.

And yet my idiot doctor does not believe me.

In Topic: I Did The Silliest Thing Today

Thank you all so much for your great replies. I am checking out that email address and Nyxie I actually have some smoked paprika on my spice rack. I completely forgot about that.

It's just that I am vegan and I love sweet potatoes with barbeque sauce drizzled over them instead of butter as I am casein free too.

I ate some fries yesterday that must have been cooked in with the battered fish as today I Have diarrhea again


In Topic: Should I Get Tested?

17 November 2007 - 07:00 PM

My main symptoms are asthma, excema, chronic low feritin levels, atrial fibrillation, osteoporosis, Graves Disease, migraines, depression and tiredness. I also had gas and bloating coupled with constipation.

I have been on a gluten free diet new fo 6 weeks and I feel much better. I did eat some gluten at 2 weeks and I came out in a generalised itchy rash all over my body, but mainly on my back. My current doctor won't accept that I had a positive antibody test done in 2001, so she considers me self diagnosed. I don't care much as I feel so much better.

For goodness sake stop eating those suspect foods. It seems that dairy is a problem at least. Maybe you have multiple food allergies and react to additives in foods. I have to eat carefully or I get palpitaions called atrial fibrillation. This is caused by monosodium glutinate and artificial colours in foods. when I abstain, the palpitations go away.

Maybe if you switch to a vegetarian diet and stop eating highly processed foods for a while the condition will correct itself. Clinical depression can lead to feelings of impending doom. I know because I often feel that way. It's then I realise that I am getting depressed.
