#922120 Contamination Anxiety- Help!

Posted by notme! on 30 June 2014 - 05:22 PM

I fully support your right to be "anal" about gluten.

hello, friend.  you seem to be obsessed with the buttholious. <_<


there are people on here who will get really sick from drinking regular beer and soy sauce made of wheat.  if you are too weak or unwise enough to resist these things, please do not try to encourage others to engage in things that will hurt them.  i am thinking that since you are still ingesting gluten regularly that you haven't experienced the clarity of mind that comes with a celiac completely removing gluten from their diet.  maybe you should try it :)

#920856 Brain Fog Please Begone

Posted by notme! on 19 June 2014 - 09:04 AM

What I want to know is - if everyone keeps displacing their Brain Frogs - where are the poor homeless creatures going?  cause I don't want them coming to live in my head again!






Also -coconut mojito?  Yum!

they WERE in the pool................... (say in jason lee 'earl' voice>  turns out, they hate chlorine!  (actually, pretty sure they vamoosed as soon as we took the cover off)  


i didn't realize how foggy my brain was until it started to clear up.  it manifested itself in Not Making Decisions = disorganization.  if you know what i mean.  i couldn't sort through paperwork, i couldn't organize the clutter in the laundry room, i couldn't decide how much $ to contribute to retirement, blah, blah.  i finally feel like i'm tackling things (FEELS GOOD!) and making pro-active decisions.  also, combined with more energy, my house is looking better/more organized.  i'm even painting :)  <couldn't decide what colors, so....... no painting, kwim  :(

How do you do fried goat cheese?

first, you get goat cheese - plain is good, i haven't tried any other flavored ones.  it's easiest to cut it with dental floss (plain) just put the string under the log and crisscross pull.  about 1/4"- 1/2" slices.  dip in beaten egg, dip in panko-type bread crumbs (i put italian seasoning in it, the recipe i used called for parsley) mixed with salt & pepper, put into the fridge for at least an hour (i did mine the day before and turned out good as well) then fry in oil.  drizzle with honey.  i am thinking of eating them with raspberry jam next time.   it's easy and yummm !


i love playing with my food :)

#917972 Letter From Dentist To Dental Patient With Ai Suspicions What Should It Say?

Posted by notme! on 27 May 2014 - 08:35 AM

not everyone has celiac that has dental issues.  or of the THREE HUNDRED SYMPTOMS we get alot of that on here.  it must be gluten.  well, maybe it's not.  maybe some people just don't brush their teeth or practice proper hygeine.  my tooth enamal is just fine, so, if you're going by that,  i just blew your theory.  my dentist would not be that irresponsible.

#916662 Severe Eczema On Hands

Posted by notme! on 19 May 2014 - 12:49 PM

also, if you use hand sanitizer, it's made with alcohol.  which is very drying.  i use soap & water (love my face olive oil soap) because sanitizer only makes whatever is on your hands germ-free.  so, if (this is what i did lolz) you're making sandwiches/handling food, say, at a bbq, and you use hand sanitizer then eat your burger with your hands..........  you see where i'm going (straight to the bathroom haha) with this ;)

#916657 Brand New And Scared

Posted by notme! on 19 May 2014 - 12:20 PM

I feel like I have to go to all my favorite places one last time.   And it's so final.  It's not like a diet with an end cheat meal day.  It's for enternity. 


aw, it's only until you die.  of old age, hopefully, and not a complication from untreated celiac. ^_^  once you start seeing symptoms start clearing up, you will be more encouraged.  it takes a minute to wrap your head around it, trust me, i know.  i was in denial in the beginning, until i was so sick i couldn't function.  honestly, once you start feeding your body the 'right' foods you will probably be pleasantly surprised at other things (seemingly unrelated) that may clear up.  celiac makes your body not absorb any of the vitamins and minerals your body needs to stay healthy when you eat gluten.  once your body gets all those good nutrients, it will repair many things!  sure, it's a pain sometimes.  but it beats being IN PAIN ;)  good luck :)

A new morning here in Sunny San Diego!


Thankfully the winds are switching directions today which will bring the much needed cooler air - hoping for gentle wind speeds -- to help our firefighters get control of the mess this asshole or assholes created. 


As usual with these wildfires the reports of houses being destroyed are heartbreaking -- a friend from HS's older sister's home is gone this morning, heartbreaking but she and the others will rebuild -- lives can't be replaced -- a body was found in close to one of the clusters of homes that burned -- waiting for the news that it was a homeowner that decided to protect their own property.  If you receive an evacuation order for whatever reason -- take heed and live to complain about the displacement.  Oops...hoping off the soapbox.


Last night we had breakfast for dinner -- only niece and nephew as guests -- their SDPD parents were off doing evacs -- this is a detective and an investigator -- one of which hasn't been in uniform on the streets for over fifteen years -- this is how stretched our emergency personnel is :(


Today I get to watch another nephew, my "angel baby" (6'5" 24 year old loves when I call him that in public) graduate from SDSU with three degrees...check out his functional art:




Happy Friday Dinner Peeps :wub:

:( wow - really scary out there, huh.  i hope everybody complies with evac orders, although i don't know how i would act under the circumstances!  it would be hard to leave my home on a moment's notice :(


your nephew looks like an 'angel baby'!  congrats!!  (and that is one funky chair lolz - have you tried it out?)  :D


tonight's dinner will be a crap shoot.  hubs snapped a front spring in dayton oh and ran it all the way down to knoxville without realizing it was broken.  he must have an army of guardian angels.  an.  army.  of.  them.  


being a trucker's wife is so romantic, when you're out there at 3 am and he whispers softly in your ear, "baby?  would you hold this?"  - it's the flashlight................... :rolleyes:
