During my worst flares we use my least favorite, yet extremely accurate nickname....'Human Amoeba'.

'BubbleGirl' takes care of my "allergic" reactions to environment and exercise.

And then there is one many of us like to use...I'm feeling froggy...started when someone with brain fog mistyped...and it fits.

lol, my hubby and I use BubbleGirl too. When I'm making dinner, I hold at least one thoroughly washed hand up as if I were a surgeon avoiding contamination of my patient.

They call me Patty Poopy Pants

And I don't feel so hot

My brain is in a constant fog

My rash itches a lot

 

It's hard to get to sleep at night

Although I'm always tired

My doctor thinks I'm crazy so

It's time that he was fired

 

My feet are swollen every night

My joints all really ache

I get the hiccups every day

I just can't catch a break

 

I need to keep a bathroom near

Except when I'm constipated

The gas pains have me doubled over

No wonder I'm so frustrated

 

The doctor says it's IBS

Or else all in my head

Sometimes I think if I had a gun

That doctor would be dead

 

For years I've suffered needlessly

With nausea and tootin'

When all I really had to do

Was take myself off gluten

That is awesome!  :lol:

Sometimes I say that I look like the Pillsbury Doughboy!

Oh yeah, I get that too. Whenever I get glutened, at some point I will also be menstruating since my symptoms tend to last 5 weeks. I have certain clothes that just will not fasten during those weeks.

One night the hubby and I was watching Cloverfield and he made a funny, at the time it wasn't so funny as we had in july an incident with a local PF Changs mentioned in a past post but that is another ball of wax. So back to the cloverfield deal, in the movie where the one actor Lizzy Caplan plays as Marlena Diamond gets bit and they are in the  army lab and she states I do not feel so good, and they grab her yelling we have a bite and she starts to swell and explode. Well I  obviously do not physically explode, but I cry, and turn emo, and ragey and have terrible bloating and other not nice things to  speak on. So  we refer to gluten and glutening as "glutenfield."

:lol: Too funny! I haven't seen Cloverfield yet, but isn't it funny how gluten is like a horror movie? I literally have nightmares about eating gluten.
