In Topic: Do Your Symptoms Always Run The Same Course?

RAndom and different every time. Sometimes it's just stabbing pain in the intestinal area. Sometimes D and vomitting. Sometimes just horrible gas pains, or brain fog or depression.
I got glutened 2 weeks ago and it's only been better the last few days. This was the worst ever in two years, and it was from cc. Oyy :(

I go to Azteca every once in a while. Here in the OC, the food is quite good. I haven't gotten glutened, nor has my son.

In Topic: Other Issues - Where To Start?

Unfortunately, intolerance testing is sketchy. Most of us figured it out the old fashioned way: a very strict elimination diet. I know it's tough to stay away from dairy, but you just have to be very, very diligent.
Best way to start is free of the top 8 allergens: dairy, shellfish, soy, gluten, peanuts, and I can't remember the rest! Sorry about that.
No processed food. Meats, fruits, veggies. Nightshades are a problem for lots of celiacs, and were for me for a while. The good news is that most intolerances go away. It's temporary while the villi fully heal.
Hope that helps!

In Topic: Glutened Recovery Time

I had a bad glutening 2 weeks ago. It was a solid 9 days until I felt human again :( I did not intentionally eat gluten, it was likely CC, but MAN was it bad. Whew! For future reference, LGlutamine seems to work to eliminate issues. My little boy sometimes cannot resist tempatation. We were at a party and he wolfed down 5 gluteny cupcakes when I wasn't watching. Fortunately, several of my gluten free girls were there, too and saw him. I gave him 5 capsules and he had no issues. He usually barfs, then spends the next 3 days in the bathroom. Haven't tried it on myself yet, but definitely will next time!

In Topic: To Dye Or Not To Dye

I think you should do whatever YOU want to do, what makes you happy. I am one who always said I would grow old gracefully. My Mom (cherokee) and all my siblings went gray in their teens. My Dad, not til 50's. At 44, I thought I still had a few more years, but no, I have gray and do not want to live with it.
My BF is 55. He was laid off during the Great Recession and thought about dying his hair for the same reasons. He thought it would give him an edge, and appear younger. I told him I LOVE his gray hair and didn't want him to change it. So he kept it gray and managed to survive and compete against the younger crowd.
If you like the gray, go with it! If you are confident in yourself, it will show to others more than what color your hair is. Me, I think I will feel more confident NOT being gray. At least til I am 50 :D

A woman I know dyed her hair red for years. She recently let it go silver, and she is stunning. It looks so much better than the red and she looks younger!
