#819504 Help!

Posted by txplowgirl on 24 August 2012 - 09:48 AM

Just because it says gluten free dosen't mean it is. It still has trace gluten in it. Under 5 PPM. You may be supersensitive and reacting to that trace of it.

#732792 Eating Gluten Again

Posted by txplowgirl on 21 September 2011 - 03:46 PM

I was gluten free for over 2 and a half years then went back on gluten for tests. I was fine for about 2 weeks then everything started happening. From D to anxiety, stomach pains etc. It takes time for the antibodies to build up in your system and then you start getting sick again. You need to be eating gluten for at least 3 months and the equivelant of 2 to 3 slices of bread a day to Hopefully test positive.

#732786 Made Myself Sick For Nothing

Posted by txplowgirl on 21 September 2011 - 03:23 PM

Bummer, the dr's office called late this afternoon with all of my results. Celiac negative, Lupus neg, Lyme neg, cortisol fine, thyroid neg. I had 15 different tests and every single one of them negative. All I wound up getting out of it was being put on Paxil and Nueronton for the pain and fatigue of my Fibro and Chronic fatigue. On top of that i've been having problems staying gluten free the last few days.
Uugghhhh, it's harder than I thought it would be. I thought I could go right back to being gluten free without any problems but I get cravings so bad and I grab something I shouldn't. I go back to work tomorrow so I can't get the actual results until I get back home in a month. I'll post the results when I get them to see what all of you guys can tell me.

#727184 Too Old For A Diagnosis?

Posted by txplowgirl on 01 September 2011 - 04:39 PM

Welcome, I know exactly where you're coming from. School PE was bad for me too! Who else do you know that would get an F in PE? I refused to dressout and workout because i hurt so bad and I would get physically sick if I did jumping jacks, situps, etc. I have had this since I was 8 years old that I know of and found out about all of this mess at the age of 44. Hang in there, you will get better.

#716211 Going Mad....

Posted by txplowgirl on 13 July 2011 - 05:24 PM

Well, number 1 is the Benefiber. It's a NO NO! Wheat Alert! Wheat Alert! Number 2 The Chex cereals get me, kick those out for a couple of weeks and see what happens. Number 3 kick the bread out for a couple of weeks as it bothers some folks to and last but not least the tomatoes which is in the nightshade family. Some of us can't handle those either. I get throat burning as well as reflux along with joint/muscle pain and swelling with those.

#714727 Help!

Posted by txplowgirl on 06 July 2011 - 05:04 PM

Hi Jewell, welcome to the forum!
He has Celiac, he had positive tests. As far as the biopsy is concerned, Depending on how many places were biopsied they could have missed the damaged areas (after all there is at least 22 feet of intestine)or his Celiac was caught in time before any damage was done. He needs to be kept gluten free for sure.

#713840 Can Someone Give Me Info About Canning Stuff?

Posted by txplowgirl on 02 July 2011 - 01:43 PM

Shayre, lol, First off you can start out with a water bath canner and something called The Ball Blue Book. It's what my relatives used to call the Official book on canning. And yes you can can meats.
To get started I would suggest you check out Jackie Clay's blog on Backwoodshome.com. She has recipes and everything you would need to know. On the first page she has an article on canning 101 on canning jellies, jams and whatnot.
Canning is kinda like just learning about being gluten free. Lots and lots of info you need to learn but once you get the hang it's easy. Have fun, once you figure things out it is addictive! I love it.

#710486 Lost And Confused And Sad

Posted by txplowgirl on 20 June 2011 - 02:01 PM

Hi Marie, just a little advice. You don't have to buy the processed gluten free foods. It's best just to start out on naturally gluten free foods like plain meats, fish, chicken, vegetables, fruits, rice, etc. These will help you a lot better because the processed gluten free foods for one are expensive plus higher in carbs and sugars.

#708395 Did You Have A Dark Time Dealing With This?

Posted by txplowgirl on 13 June 2011 - 02:39 PM

o gosh, how do you do it?? husband drives (16 in the air, 2 on the pavement lolol) and i used to go on the road with him. we would usually do sandwiches or whatever for breakfast/lunch, raid the truckstop (cheez crackers, snackies, etc, DONUTS) then stop at a truckstop restaurant for supper. husband has been running otr so long he knows which ones are decent and which ones to avoid. even so, we have ordered things and had the waitress screw up the order or have the food be downright disgusting. now, i am so afraid to go with him and he overcompensates (even on car trips) and deprives himself when i don't feel comfortable eating places. and our kids are grown now and that was our plan: for me to go with and see some stuff. visit some people. now, that is in the toilet (LOL couldn't resist) GOD love you txplowgirl, you just keep on trucking. he has a fridge and a nucrowave. doublebunk, standup sleeper. relatively new truck. right now he is on a dedicated and i have been there a few times (tn-mi-tn) but when he actually has to start running the board again, i am either never going to see him or have to suffer thru???? oy. he runs flatbed. well, conestoga - what are you hauling? are you an o/o? if so it's gotta be rough out there! anyway, i say an extra prayer for all truckers and their families every night. just so's you know... stay safe and well!



Hi there! Well, I have a microwave and an electric skillet, with 2 plug in coolers I keep well stocked. I visit a walmart every few days and I keep a lot of fruits, nuts and vegetables on hand. I eat at truck stop restaurants occasionally but not real often. Have several waitresses whol run for the hills when they see me coming. :P
I drive for Prime inc out of Springfield, Mo. Leasing a truck at the moment thinking of buying one. Not for sure what i'll do. It can be a bit of a challenge at times. But where else can you get paid for taking vacations! :D :D I see a lot of beautiful country and sometimes even get to stop and do some sight seeing. That's what keeps me going. I absolutely love it.
There is no reason you can't ride with him. Just pack some things for you to eat, get an electric skillet, etc. Go inside the restaurant and order a steak and baked potato. Make sure they understand to clean the grill and no seasonings, no bread on the side, corn or a type of veggie that you like. That's what I do, no problem so far.

#708322 Did You Have A Dark Time Dealing With This?

Posted by txplowgirl on 13 June 2011 - 11:01 AM

I'm sorry you feel terrible, big ((((hugs)))) to you. Myself, I drive a big truck across this country of ours and having Fibromyalgia and other food intolerances has been somewhat frustrating. Ok, I fibbed, downright frustrating and often times miserable. There have been times i've had to pull off to the side of the road and cry or sometimes i've screamed my fool head off. But I know that everyday won't be this way. As for family memebers not willing or believe. Well, I have finally learned to just go my way and if somebody is curious and wants to ask questions then i'll help them. But you know the old saying. "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make himm drink."
You could still be going through some withdrawals. Try to be happy that you finally found what your problem is and be grateful for that. I know easier said than done, huh. :) Think of something that you enjoy and go do it. Go out and find you a quiet spot out in the country and yell your head off. Get it out of your system because you could be in a grieving process and not realize it. Then again you could be somewhat depressed which could be another reason you're not motivated. But setting there not doing anything but feeling bad for yourself isn't helping is it? Hang in there it will get better, just takes time.

#706643 Normal Blood Work, But....

Posted by txplowgirl on 07 June 2011 - 01:04 PM

You have possibly developed other food intolerances. Dairy and soy seem to be the top 2 that a lot of people have. Might be advisable to do an elemination diet and cut out the most common food allergens. Hope this tidbit helps.

#703965 Deactivate My Account Immediately

Posted by txplowgirl on 30 May 2011 - 02:43 PM

I'm sorry you feel the need to leave. I not only have a gluten problem but Fibromyalgia, hypoglycemia and rhuematoid arthritis. Most of the people on here have other have these and other problems as well. They have helped me on numerous occasions on not just the gluten but the hypo and my Fibro especially. I think your problem is you can't or won't take any advise everyone has given you to help you. Seems to me all you want is people to pity you. I feel bad that you feel this way but if you refuse to listen then by all means, please leave, maybe you can find someone else to listen to you. Good bye and good luck.

#703544 My Son's Sad Look Upon His Face

Posted by txplowgirl on 29 May 2011 - 10:58 AM

Karl, you need help. Flat out you are living in depression and grief. Disabled, I'll give you an example of overcoming a disability. My ex brother on law and his wife both were paralysed on a car wreck and they had 3 children. What did they do? They didn't wallow in self pity. When they recovered enough to live on their own they went on with their lives. They raised their children, they went fishing, I watched my brother in law crawl out of his chair and fix the motor on his van. I watched him replace a motor. They showed me how not to let my gluten problem drag me down. You are wallowing in self pity and for a grown man I think you you are acting like a child. Grow up and get some help.
