Topics I've Started

Has Anyone Applied For Ssi/ssdi?

12 September 2013 - 09:23 AM

I'm thinking I might do it... Working is just plain too much with my anxiety.  I'm told if you have anxiety you can get it...  My anxiety is quite severe, and I just have a hard time living life AND working, and I'm not even working all that much anymore, and its not even something I enjoy.  I want to start an at home craft business thing, since that's something I can do on MY schedule, I'm good at, and I enjoy.  But with being a mom, and a wife, with my anxiety, I never have the strength to do what needs doing around the house, I don't go to church anymore because I'm too overwhelmed, and I can't keep on top of my health...


What Do You Eat?

Okay so I can't have: Rosemary, Gluten, Dairy, Fish/Seafood... Plus all that goes along with Esophagitis.

So when you can't eat spicy food or tomatoes or onions, and all that jazz... what do you eat? Like for example, what do you put on your noodles?  Or like what do you put on potatoes?  Do your tacos seem really bare? So on so forth.

Well, so I just had the experience of reviewing all my trusted restaurants for gluten free food... too bad getting gluten free and dairy free is almost impossible without being at a vegan restaurant and my hubby is rather antagonistic toward vegan restaurants...

Finally I found a morsel to eat at Wingers... But THEN they screwed up my order.

First they cooked my tacos with the cilantro lime sauce which had dairy... I told them to take it off...

So they come out with a new order.  Hubby gets home and we open it up... FLOUR FRICKIN TORTILLAS! I said CORN!  AND GLUTEN FREE!

And I should have been unable to get more because well, its closing time almost... But I just said, 'Honey, call them and see if there is anything they can do for us next time...'  Well they said they would remake it and he could come get it despite the fact technically they'd be closed by the time he got there.

So guess who's a hungry cranky butt!  This gal!


Another One? Come On!

So now, I'm trying to eat VERY 'cleanly' with my esophagitis, gluten intolerance, and lactose intolerance (with likely casein allergy).  But stupidly, it would appear now that I've got something ELSE I'm not responding to, and I can't figure out what it is.  I itch, and if I had white skin it'd be flaming red.  (I'm a brownie so red doesn't show up on my skin)  And then there is the fact the corners of my mouth are very cracked, and my throat feels swollen.  Faceplant.  NOW what?

 

I am SOOOOOOO frustrated now!  I want to feel good!  Is it too much to ask to figure out EVERYTHING all at once?

 

Also, I'm considering seeing an allergist, but those tests where they see if you flare, I'm afraid nothing will show up because I've got brown skin and don't turn red so they will say I don't have any, when obviously I do...  Are there other alternatives to it?


Wic Issues... Again

So now that I've a lactose intolerance officially dx'd but I also suspect a casein allergy/intolerance (they only tested for lactose strangely... oh well.), I have to change what milk I get through WIC... But they don't do rice milk, nor do they do soy based alternatives, at least not for the moms... I'm SCREWED because I'm fairly certain I won't handle lactose-free milk thanks to casein, but I absolutely cannot handle goats milk.  (Believe me I've tried... I have NO control over my bowel now thanks to the goat milk.)   Evidently goats milk still has lactose but supposedly its easier to digest... I think I might just tell them to take milk off my checks period... cause I don't even want to RISK the lactose free milk...

 

Opinions?  What do you all drink/use?
