In Topic: Latex Allergy

Yeah, I think I might go with a bracelet just because I'm going off to college and I would hate to have something go wrong when I'm away from my parents/anyone who could advocate for me. My symptoms aren't life threatening, I don't think, but I'd hate to have it develop into something worse. As I'm gluten-intolerant, I don't think I need that on a medic alert bracelet because I'd rather deal with the symptoms of that than die in a life-threatening emergency. If I were to be diagnosed with any other autoimmune conditions, I would of course add that.

Stuff's making sense again: always itching after playing with rubber balls, wearing gloves, sanitary pads, appliques on shirts, etc.

In Topic: Birthday Cake?

Cherrybrook Kitchen makes a pretty good cake mix that can be made easily dairy-free. They also make a frosting mix (don't buy the pre-made stuff, just the mix) that can be made dairy free (all products are inherently dairy free, but you add the milk you want - rice milk, almond milk, etc. ). The frosting requires butter/margarine, which you could make dairy -free.

Or you could be gluten intolerant. That would make your blood tests negative too. It's possible for one person to be celiac and one to be gluten sensitive in one family, though I admit your chances of celiac are higher.

In Topic: Recipe Suggestions?

I've asked about a Crock Pot, and my RA is finding out for me. I don't think Foreman grills are allowed period because they have an open burner. I might be allowed to bring one and store it.

In Topic: Juice Fast

If you've never done one, be aware of how your body can react. I've juice fasted as part of church fundraisers several times and done horribly. I get a bad headache from all the sugar, jitters, nausea, extreme crankiness -- in other words, I don't react well, and will probably not be able to fast again. My sister, also prone to headaches, gets nasty ones herself when she fasts. So if you are prone to headaches, make sure you drink plenty of water, and listen to your body.
