#880262 The Funny Pages - Tickle Me Elbow - The Sequel

Posted by curlyfries on 19 July 2013 - 03:55 PM

Hey everyone! I found the Yeti! Apparently he has found employment doing the voice for Garmin. You know....usually you get a woman's voice telling you to "turn left in 1 mile". So my husband recently discovered he can change the voice and one of the options is YETI!! I kid you not :P

How crazy! Can I assume this is our public school system? And I wonder where the effort has gone for our teacher to motivate our children. :huh:


Oh yes. It's administration that dropped the ball. Very hard to do my job whilst trying to resolve all these issues. Seems others I have talked to have had similar experiences.....yet the problem still exists.

#785845 Update...and Very Scared Now!

Posted by curlyfries on 07 April 2012 - 03:35 AM

Lucky you on 2 counts!

One....if the test was positive, you have you're answer. No doubts, no second guessing. You know what you need to do.

Two....since she actually wants to talk to you,you may have a doctor who will be of some help, not one who gives a diagnosis and pushes you out the door.

#784087 Sharing A Hospital Gluten-Free Experience

:blink:

Funny, yes.....but terribly, terribly sad.

I hope your friend set her straight...in front of the administrator.

There is no excuse for a dietician to be so extremely misinformed.

#779973 If You Have Celiac Disease, Would You Keep Your Children Gluten Free For Life...

Posted by curlyfries on 11 March 2012 - 05:54 AM

This is a hard one to answer. We are dealing with it now with my 2 year old grandbaby. I am self diagnosed celiac/gluten intolerant. My daughter has been tested, came out negative, but accepts that whether or not the test is accurate, she must be gluten free. She decided to start her baby out gluten free. When they are so little, they can't tell you why they are fussy or why they won't eat. If she were eating gluten, we would always wonder. My daughter has not yet decided if she should introduce gluten when her child is better able to communicate how she feels.

If you really think it caused you problems, you could be having issues with dairy.

#777793 Non-Food Items Your Baby Or Child Needs To Avoid

Posted by curlyfries on 02 March 2012 - 01:13 PM

Cortizone??? You mean the stuff I've been lathering on my daughter's intensely itchy skin might be more of a hinderance than a help? She hasn't been diagnosed (The blood work came back negative but we are going gluten free to see if it helps her myriad of issues but the doc's have given us creams and lotions, and pills and... grrr! Not one of them made one dang bit of difference!


Many of the op's statements are inaccurate. Please do some research before reacting to this thread.

Could we get a tricked out bus, like a rock star? With all our various diet issues, it would be good to have the ability to cook.


Well if we're gonna go that far, might as well have a personal chef on board ;)

#775259 For The Older Ladies W/o Gold Seal Dx

Posted by curlyfries on 22 February 2012 - 03:13 AM

Wow.....looks like most of the women (and men) here must be going through menopause! :unsure:

Let's just take everything a woman could possibly complain about and call it menopause. :rolleyes:

And you've had no changes in your cycle?

What kind of test did you have? If you had a positive blood test then you're celiac. Add to that the fact that you have improved on a gluten free diet. Doctor's are so good at making us feel like we don't know what we're talking about. Go with your gut ;) .....and the proof and don't let doctors tell you differently. Trying to label it menopause, to me, is almost as bad as "It's all in your head."

#773590 Packaged Nuts And Frozen Fruits/veggies

Posted by curlyfries on 15 February 2012 - 03:08 AM

Most of the foods I eat are not specifically labeled gluten free. Frozen fruits and vegetables are naturally gluten free. The only exception might be those with added sauces. Nuts are also naturally gluten-free but as you have noticed, some have an issue with cc. If there is that possibility, it will be stated as such. I have had no problems with Planters nuts, and I eat them every day. (Note: I have never tried the fancy flavored kinds, so can't speak for those.)

#760666 I Thought I Was Gluten-Free, But Apparently Not. Ugh!

Posted by curlyfries on 29 December 2011 - 05:37 PM

The more you can stick to simple and naturally gluten-free foods.....meat, fish, veggies, etc., the less label reading necessary.Stay away from processed foods for awhile, except the ones you are already comfortable with. Then venture out and try something new occassionally that may require some investigating. Hopefully this will eliminate some of your stress, so you don't feel so overwhelmed.

Personally, I eat very simply......don't have to bother with finding specialty gluten-free foods (except chebe mixes :P)It is much healthier and safer (and cheaper), but I realize not everyone is willing to take that step ;)

#753592 Did Your Partner Support You ..........

Posted by curlyfries on 04 December 2011 - 07:14 AM

Hopefully he will change his tune after you've been gluten free for a while and he sees how much better you feel.

I never got an official diagnosis, and my hubby is my biggest supporter. He will speak up at restaurants before I get a chance. And I really don't spend any more on groceries....just eat simply. No processed food, except for my pizza crust mix :P
