#803490 On The Subject Of Memory Problems

Posted by Newtoitall on 14 June 2012 - 11:08 AM

OMG...That is SOOOO true....My hubby just couldn't understand why I couldn't remember what I did earlier in the day...he was convinced I didn't do ANYTHING while he was at work! The truth was ...I just couldn't remember! Heck I couldn't remember what I had for breakfast...I couldn't remember if I HAD breakfast! I'd go all day without eating...then realize I hadn't EATEN by 5:00pm, when I was getting dinner ready! and that was years before everything got REAL obvious! right before I was DX! I so relate to the not remembering what a fork was....Ummmmm...you know ...That THINGY!...With the sharp points! :blink:
Or I'd stop and have a food related question for the boys while making dinner...and it would sound like this..."Ddddddd...ddddd....ddddo....ddddd...ddd...dddd...DO yyyyyu.....dddddoo....yyyyyu......wwwwwwant?DDDDDDo yyyyyu....wwwwwant? uuuuuummmmm....IIIII forggggot!"My God! I thought I was having a stroke!(It didn't help at the time I was light sensetive, my extremities kept going numb, and I was having chest pains and had had a migraine for 2 months straight!)...REALLY SAD AND PATHETIC....then my arm or cheek would start twitching or I would feel like passing out!(turned out to be celiacs/and caesin...the dairy was causing migraines, muscle seisures and hot flashes...go figure!)
I am SOOOO glad THAT is in the past! THINGS are SOOOO much better now! Still have a little trouble remembering how to spell words, and I have ALOT of trouble still with GLUTEN ATAXIA...my hands,calves and forearms especially! but MAN....things are SO much better by a long shot! you totally brought back some memories there! :blink: :D
One time I was walking and compleatly lost the feeling in my toes on my right foot and 2 toes on my left...gone ..it was like they compleatly disapeared...not tingly(that happens alot too), but disapeared like they wern't there! Trust me when I say THAT is rather unnerving! :blink: :rolleyes: :lol:
But a Glutenfree/caesinfree/nightshade/soy free diet ( well mostly soy free...still rooting out the soy, it rears its ugly head in unlikely places...LOL!)...has made a WORLD of difference! and it will get even better when I can beat this malabsorbtion issue I'm sure!Still have along way to go....its only been since sept. 2011. My Doc says it takes a while especially since I have at least 40 years worth of undiagnosed Celiacs damage to heal(I can trace it back to age 6... when I had stomache issues/ fainting spells and severe migraines!....6 yr.olds shouldn't have chronic migraines or fainting spells! with all the bloodwork and catscans, they NEVER thought to test for FOOD allergies!) :( ....But that is a story very often told among us Celiacs! ;) ...Better LATE than NEVER! :rolleyes: :D


If you don't mind me asking, how did you come to suspect Nightshades? I've seen that a few times but never considered it a whole lot, one other thing, I am quitting dairy in general and sugar if I can avoid it totally, but it is some intense withdrawal I feel like an addict the way I want milk or something lol did you get anything like that? pretty sure one day off it and my back pain is already gone =/

I've been making eggs for breakfast for like, the last 2 years and the last week I don't know what it is but I've constantly left the burner on! going to destroy my damn cookware lol it's weird, I dunno how I can go fine for 2 years and then just start forgetting something so obvious, it's not like I'm rushing for something after it's made o.O

#800553 How To Make Boyfriend And Friends Understand

Posted by Newtoitall on 04 June 2012 - 08:37 AM

All I have to say, is be glad your not a guy. I find guys are much more willing to sacrifice for a girl then girl's are for a guy, having to be the forward one usually makes the first kiss awkward as F when you have to find a way to be smooth about saying "so hey yeah, I can't kiss you unless you go brush like a fiend! with .. this kind of toothpaste.. ahaha it's funny to think about it because it will never happen. I wish you the best of luck with it though. Would love to have good advice on that one =P

If I come off as insensitive, my bad, I'm not saying all girls are that way, just alot of them find it way easier to just move on, I can't blame them either.

This is a question to those, who HAD memory issues, brain fog, ect. and have since Solved zed problems with a gluten free lifestyle, or... w.e it was that solved zed memory issues for you =D

Keep in mind, I'm looking to see if there is any..Stories of triumph not..depressing tales of ongoing struggles.
not that my heart doesn't go out to those people, it does, I just need to know if anyone's licked this xD

#712673 How Do You Clean Gluten

Posted by Newtoitall on 28 June 2011 - 01:58 PM

I remember an older post about this, and someone said Formula 409 is great. I usually wipe down surfaces with vinegar and hot water or (1-3 or 4) or bleach and water using latex gloves. Then I toss the dishcloth in the laundry. (I'm OCD about dishcloths.) Don't you wish you could just send them outside with their gluten? Like smokers? Maybe in 20 years or so, we'll see people standing outside of public buildings eating biscuits. :D


XD I like that idea

#705696 Attention Dog Lovers!

Posted by Newtoitall on 04 June 2011 - 12:02 PM

I don't bathe my dog all that much because hes a jack russel, hes small, and every time he goes outside, he voids the point of a bath, because I sware in 5 minutes he will absorb a month of dirt from outside lol

BUT I will bathe him now and then, despite the fact he seems to prefer to be fithly so he can pretend hes a hunter =P what should I use?

my skin is absurdly sensitive, I imagine to the gluten in thing's perhaps something else, but for now, what is a good gluten-free shampoo to wash my dear ole dog with?
