#936012 Just Have To Get This Out.

Posted by notme! on 03 December 2014 - 12:13 PM

i broke up with my dad.  my mom is dead.  i am orphaned  :/


my dad is the most unscrupulous man on the planet.  if you met him, you would like him, because he is always good to strangers.  he saves the 'omg i can't believe he did that' for the family.  he treated my mother terribly.  he married the perfect woman for him, as she is just as greedy as he is.  their last visit to my home, the woman steps out onto my back porch and hollers in pain.  then she created such an ugly scene and went back to their hotel room.  my dad asked me about my homeowners insurance.........  yep, he's *that* guy.  i told him i do not have any insurance and that i love him because he's my dad, but we're not doing this anymore.  he doesn't understand how stress makes my body react and i am still underweight in spite of eating almost non-stop.  he doesn't care.  i had to break up with him.  


i completely get what you are saying.  save yourself...!

#935765 Not Sure What To Think At This Point

Posted by notme! on 29 November 2014 - 12:43 PM

if gluten is a problem for you, you can stop eating it, but you still have all the inflammation that takes awhile to go away.  nicole is right, keep a food journal to identify problem foods (not necessarily gluten, keep in mind) and you may have to lay off certain foods until you're healed enough to digest them.  you may want to try probiotice and/or digestive enzymes to help your body break down foods and help digestion.  


ALL my doctors missed the celiac dx, so don't feel alone.  many of us on this forum were misdiagnosed (i heard rumors that i had anorexia and/or bulimia....  thanks, dumb family) when i was finally diagnosed, i started to get better.  i am still having improvements and have no doubt that this was what was causing my symptoms <oh, and they gave me every pill you can imagine for the symptoms but never identified the cause of the symptoms.  ibs is a joke dx but i heard that and colitis almost every time i went to the doctor.  


welcome to the forum and i hope you feel better :)

#933540 Frozen Pie Shell!

Posted by notme! on 27 October 2014 - 08:11 AM

so, i'm moseying along in the kroger, always snooping in the 'freak' frozen section (lolz) and what do i see??


gluten-free frozen pie shells!!  just in time for thanksgiving!!  W00T!  they are 'wholly wholesome' brand and come 2 to a package (i guess you can 'unmold' the 2nd one to make a 2 crust pie)  but perfect for punkin pie.  and they are basically allergy free  <even corn!)  so, to make the holidays a little less hectic, hopefully they don't taste like cardboard!  (shoot, they're even kosher, wow - they've got all their bases covered lolz)


i'm gonna give them a try sometime this week :)

#933538 Just Diagnosed!

Posted by notme! on 27 October 2014 - 07:45 AM

here is some very helpful info:




i was recommended to see a dietitian - insurance would pay - called for an appointment:  sure, see ya in 2 weeks...  


*blink*  what?  sooo, what am i supposed to eat for two weeks??!!  my husband googled and he found this site.  i cancelled my appointment a few days later.  pretty glad i did being as the next time i went to my g.p. for my blood pressure check-up, the nurse practitioner didn't even know what celiac was.  she looked at me all stupid when i said i replaced my lip gloss and said, "what do you do?  eat it?"  o, boy   <_< so, personally, i have better faith in people who actually have to live gluten free every day.


welcome and good luck  :)

#931951 Kraft Products ... I'm Shocked!

Posted by notme! on 03 October 2014 - 09:52 AM

If you read the labels on products you will be safe. That's the bottom line. Wheat in some cheeses? The label will say so. If it does, don't eat it.


And for those of you who insist Kraft products are not safe, just don't buy them. That will leave more for those of us who know better. And by the way, I'm one of those "old timers" who has been glutened exactly ONCE in three and a half years. (And it certainly wasn't by cheese, nor a Kraft product.)

yep - on the 14th it will be one year since i was glutened.  NOT by cheese or a kraft product or any grocery item i purchased in the store and read the label to check ingredients.  it was from eating out.  ONE YEAR.  lolz, i must be so bad at keeping safe...  


that being said, i will put an item back if there are any ingredients i don't understand or look like they could be sketchy.  (ha!  and i looked up one ingredient in the store one time and it turned out to be coloring made from crushed bug bodies - YIKES - no more fruit cocktail cherries for *this* girl.  gross.  but, hey, even crushed bug bodies are gluten free, so, technically, i *could have* eaten them safely!!)  i think we are all pretty sensitive, but maybe you are feeling badly from some other source.  like everybody else who has been walking in celiac shoes, i want to stress label reading.  and suggest using a food journal if you are having symptoms that you need to track down the cause of your troubles.  if you really think all these things are making you sick, please let us know when you are miraculously cured by not eating cheese and kraft products.  thanks and have a pleasant day :)

#931294 Dh Sometimes Look Like Poison Ivy?

Posted by notme! on 25 September 2014 - 08:07 AM

While both Celiac and DH are a bodies response to gluten, they are not the same. While it is easy to lump them together they are totally different from each other medically. DH is an auto immune disease that creates a systemic histaminic  reaction. Celiac doesn't. I am not a doctor but have had medical doctors explain the difference in medical terms that I do not fully understand, but that is the bottom line.





there is an explanation in layman's terms that even not-doctors can understand...  dh is celiac.

#930817 Could Your Retainer Be Preventing Healing? Yes.

Posted by notme! on 16 September 2014 - 08:07 AM

good luck with your paranoia, people.  years later, when your kids have permanently crooked teeth, because you buy into this bs, i hope you remember exactly why you spent thousands of dollars on braces, just to have their teeth move back to their original crooked places.  


i wasn't supposed to drink soda when i had my braces.  i told my mother i never did.  but i did EVERY DAY.  so, noooooooooo, your kids aren't cheating on their diet/messing up a little.  it must be that retainer.  (really there is gluten in METAL?  wow.  just wow.)

#930196 The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Posted by notme! on 09 September 2014 - 07:38 PM

I would say add a little egg and a smidge of flour.  But you don't do egg.


Has anyone tried the waffle iron using mashed potatoes - sweet or white?  My Irish Grandma used to take leftover mashed potatoes add a bit of egg and flour and fry like a pancake.  We called the Irish latkes.  The recipe book guy did left-over mac and cheese in them.  Let me see if he did anything to the mac and cheese.

MADNESSSS!!!!  you had me at irish grandma  :D  i love to play with my food - hmmmmmmm..... o snap, you could put corned beef, sauerkraut & swiss - ta daaaaaaaaa!!!  REUBEN LATKES!!!!   OR, orrr, stay with me now........:    BACON &chedda, sour cream, chives, etc and have a LOADED LATKE!!!  this is very exciting - ha, i bet hubs will love it.  you can't really do anything wrong with a potato  :D

Thanks Irish! :) The zucchini that I got given to me were enormous and the pancake recipe came nowhere near using them up! I will check those out.


I used to work in South Florida--I did a 9 month missionary project down in the Florida Keys. While I was there I stayed on Grassy Key, about 6 miles from the town of Marathon.

i make zucchini lasagne that is delicious and easy - just make like you would 'normally' make lasagne except sub zucchini sliced thin lengthwise for noodles.  it takes longer to cook, depending on how soft you like your 'noodles'  :)

Posted by notme! on 18 August 2014 - 09:09 AM

Really...I never tried that.

I have doc notes in all of our wallets....never needed to pull them out'

i bring food everywhere, and, ditto - never had to pull out my 'prescription note' lolz - usually, if i've never been there before, i ask if it's ok and i get somebody's name to drop at the door.  i've brought my own beer into clubs and bars, too.  i try to be discreet (until i get a good buzz on hahaha) 


if you need to call somewhere, and they start giving you a hard time about bringing your own, start asking them a kazillion questions, then tell them what you need them to do if you're not allowed to bring your own.  they give in pretty easily.  (i talk real fast lolz)


tonight is mini crab sliders (the oldest is in town with her hubs and 3 y.o. AND my soon to be born grandson #4!!!!  - which will make 5 grandbabies for us.  big sis maddie says his name shall be called:  red bird :)  lololz)  and fresh corn on the cob.  going to try that peeling trick - supposedly shucks the corn without leaving any pesky silk)


the other night we made zucchini lasagne - it is truly delicious - and so easy.  just have to remember it takes longer to bake than regular noodles.  hubs sliced the zucchs with a Janky Mandolin.  so totally jankified - plastic + dishwasher = warped.  but it still works.  i should get a decent metal one...   <_<

#926348 Gluten-Free Eggs

Posted by notme! on 04 August 2014 - 11:04 AM

chicken feed goes through digestive tract of chicken.   eggs come out of reproductive system.  two different 'highways' which are not combined.  


y'all lost me on this one.   except if maybe they don't wash them ?  because, eggs are made from, well....  egg....   :huh:


otherwise, my grandpa was right - feed the cows chocolate and they'll give chocolate milk   ^_^

Posted by notme! on 31 July 2014 - 11:17 AM

mmmmmmmmmmmm.....  sammich..........   :)  


i eat alot of sammiches - i like to consider, nutritionally, what i'm putting *on* the bread rather than the bread itself.   the bread is simply a vehicle to deliver a plethora of vitamin rich goodness to my mouth hole :D :D :D

Well, shoot...there goes my Pumpernickel!!   :D

yup - sorry!  it was three bakers brand rye style (with caraway seeds)  gluten free - i got it at kroger.  somebody asked me how it was - it was frozen, then i baked it to thaw it, then i loaded it up with thousand island dressing, sauerkraut, corned beef and swiss.  then i pan fried it.  so, for that particular application, it was good and 'held up' <didn't turn to smush and wasn't all cardboardy)  and i did alot of things to it!  lolz


hang around, smri, we swap recipes on here - eventually somebody will come up with a good pump recipe (if they haven't already)  ;)
