Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

The powdered sugar at the health food stores usually does not have corn starch as an anti-caking ingredient. As always, check labels.

Thanks Julie--I didn't know that. Is it just plain powdered sugar then?

I'm not feeling so hot, and it's all my own stupid fault. :angry: All the talk about ice cream earlier--I made some banana/chocolate chip/cinnamon ice cream (Vance's). I used confectioner's sugar instead of regular sugar. I had a nice bowl when it was fresh out of the machine--topped it with sliced almonds--it was so good! The bad news is that since about an hour after I ate it, I've been going back and forth to the bathroom :ph34r: . How is it that I didn't know that confectioner's sugar has cornstarch in it? :blink: Cornstarch <_<

So sorry Patti, a lot of you have upset stomachs, you, Tavi, Donna, Andrea, little Seth..I hope you guys all feel better real soon :)

Ok I need some support from my rachelville coinhabitants. I had this great mini vacationa dn woke up today in the best mood. I don't get D when I get sick but the opposite and I was really scared flying would just kill me since it can affect normal people. But I woke up happy and then I went to the broom and was just on cloud nine( god the things that make me happy are so funny) Anyways Breakfast was fine but at lunce I got so sick I didn't have anything weird but I realized I used the same cucumber I ahd yesturday and yesturday I felt I was having a mild reaction to somehting and coulden't figure out what it was no I am sure it was th ecucumber. I feel so sick and have since 12 today . I am sos frustrrated because cucumber is the one thing that almost always sits welll with me . I'm alaways careful about where I buy tem and never buy them with that waxy crap on the outside. I feel so frustrated becaus ewhen I get sick from something like that I feel like I have no control over being sick at all. I was so happy this morning and felt like I had made a positive trun because it had been a few days without a major reaction to anything which is a big deal for me. I feel like I was just knocked back down.

Patti,

Yep, just plain powdered sugar, but since it doesn't have the corn starch in it it gets a little clumpy. I buy mine at Vitamin Cottage, a local health food store here, in their bulk packaged store brand- so I don't know if you can find any in your neck of the woods.

Wholesome Sweeteners, a brand carried at Whole Foods and Wild Oats now has corn starch in it, (it didn't use to that I remember) so definitely read the labels. :)

I know how you feel! I had been feeling pretty well for the last couple of weeks and then today I made a mistake and bam! Definately knocked back down :(

I'm sorry that you got sick--I sure hope that it passes quickly. I understand how frustrating it is to have this happen.

Thanks Donna, I am still not used to my name and it's been 49 years!

Here are the ingredients in the orange chicken I ate:

Vegetables : should be ok

sauce: water, orange juice concentrate, distilled vinegar, modified corn starch, dehrdrated garlic, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, salt, sucralose non-nutritive sweetner, dehydrated bell pepper, xanathan gum, sodium benzoate flavor, spice, citric acid, and extractives of paprika chicken white meat, water, modified tapioca starch, salt, sodium phosphate.

Does anyone see something gluten here? I don't have the package of the taffy I ate. The only other thing I ate was frozen yogurt from Dryers, praline and cream.

Man I forgot how awful this is.

Tavi,

I'm not sure. I looked at Dryers and the only frozen yogurt they list is with Praline is Caramel Praline Crunch which has modified food starch.

Have you had this dish before, the orange chicken?

The frustrating thing is I really want to try out new foods to create more variety in my diet but I can';t when I am having a reaction becasue then I just react to everything. I hope this passes quickly. I'm sorry you also had a reaction - God I wish it wasen't food that we had to avoid - Imagine if it was just those spiders- now that owuld be easier

Lots to catch up on.

Vinecnt -- appranetly, we make up words in Rachelville all the time, so I guess we are not too worried about spelling.

Here is the updat on our son -- DW and I are not all evil like he says...we had an hour long meeting with his psychologist today, and when she double checked her math, he is on TOO SMALL a dosage for his medications....that could be causing the mood swings. He is still moody today, but we are going to let him get it out of his system, and get some sleep and we'll see. I also am trying to get him on the Gluten Free diet as I hear it does wonders for kids with ADD/ADHD.

I am at work tonight---stupid shift owrk---stupid air traffic shifts---- :angry::angry:

Talk to you all soon!

I'm premature posting (Learned that from Susan.) because I checked in very late today. Blame it on the cafergot, which destroys the migraine but puts me to sleep. I have read far enough along to catch up with all your good wishes for me. You are all so kind, and I love you! Whoa! What? Crushed ice? Lord have mercy! I never thought of that! How dumb can I be? :blink::blink::blink:

TAVI - what a lovely name! Is it pronounced Ta- (short "a" as in ah), and vi ("i" as the European "i" pronounced as the long "e" sound in Peep)? Accent on the first syllable?

Tavi, our entrenched bum. Love it!

Daxin,

gluten-free diet does wonders for some ADHD cases. It depends on the root cause of the ADHD. In some cases its a physical issue that can be corrected, in others it is a mental issue that can only be learned to cope with as it can not be fixed.

In my case ithe gluten-free diet does absolutly nutin ( I have been DX with ADHD by two indepent docs). Another thing to check besides gluten is food dyes and addtives. Many ppl react ot them and they cause ADHD like symptons. Also should check for Anemia, that could also cause ADHD like smptons. Another thing to check is Autism, esply AS. Its offten misdiag'd as ADHD and unfortunitly the ADHD meds do nothing for it. ( I think this is my case acutally as I did Ritilan and Concerta for a while and realy did not help).

Just some tips from someone that understands the ADHD world by personal experence.

OMG....Donna I need your help!!

I'm still having problems with these "biting" ants. No more being nice and swatting them away....I wanna squash these suckers right into the ground. :angry:

What the heck is going on?? How can regular black ants bite or sting me like this?? I'm finding the whole thing to be rather disturbing. These are some very mean ants. <_<

They are in a very bad mood! The heat has affected their wee brains, you see. Sprinkle a line of boric acid across doorways and/or windows, wherever they can gain entrance to your peaceful abode. :angry:

My son's Asperger's symptoms overlap quite a bit with ADD/ADHD. He seems able to handle gluten and casein, but what works wonders for him is a scheduled day, with lots of exercise (bike rides after school, Tae Kwon Do twice a week, etc) scheduled in. Swinging on the swing set for ten minutes before school makes a big difference in his day. When he was very little, we got the school to agree to give him a break twice aday to walk around the school for five minutes.

I would like to suggest that in Rachelville, recess NOT be immediately after lunch!

No I have never bought this chicken before, I just saw it at the grocery store and bought it because it looked ok. I am not sure, what about the distilled vinegar? I think I just won't try anything new. I am not sure about the frozen yogurt, I had thought all of their stuff was gluten-free except for the one's we would know weren't like cookies and cream and cookie dough. I usually but the regular ice cream so I just don't know. I can't believe I was so careless, I should of known better than that. :unsure:

Thank-you Cissie, Let's see I think you are saying it right, it would be the short a and vi sounds like a long e. My mom was reading a book and came across the name, it was actually a boy's name. The book was The Far Land, but I lost my copy years ago. I believe the man that gave her the book was George Boothalee or something like that, think he moved to Oregon someplace. I don't know why I am giving you that history lesson. Must be the gluten! :huh:

Susan, many wise words spoken. I'll add a story about my grandmother. About a month before she died we were having tea and I said to her, "do you know what I figured out Gramma" and she said "what?" and I said between birth and death there is just this one breath". She looked at me and her eyes kind of went "clang, clang, clang, like a cartoon character in a funny way, and then she laughed and she said, "that's true". So, a month later she went travelling and she went off her medication and she fell ill and died but not before 15 family members travelled to be with her and spent the day weaving a net of love that lifted her away. Twice she stood, after hours of nothing but death rattle for breath and announced she was going to her Lord. :)

Only in this breath do we have the opportunity to express our deepest heart, the past is gone, the future is not here. Please do not be too hard on yourself, the fact that your family loves you says much about the person you truly are and not the misery laid on you. :)

Profoundly beautiful story, well told, Rinne.

Well, I have to agree. Our teachers on this board can probably chime in as well. Home Economics is gone for most schools. Schools are being forcrd to cut out programs such as art, music, home ec, etc over athletics. Due to high demands of organiized sports most children today cannot be just that CHILDREN.

Pardon this rant butt ....

Too many bloody parents think their children are the great athletes of all time and will 1) get a college scholarhip or 2) go pro. I cannot stand some uneducated parents on the sidelines of an 8 year old soccer match yelling at a 12 year referee. I get very mad and I want to smack the parent.

Too many "coaches" do not know what the F#$% they are doing. They read a book and think they "know" how to coach. Very frustrating. Team sports are supposed to show children how to work together and accept an outcome -- win or lose - -

Pardon the rant ...

Rave on, MacDuff!!! When you're right, you're right!

In my capacity as Distinguished Chair of Literary and Historical Oddities Department at UCCF, I bring to the attention of all citizens of Rachelville that there was a time, within recent memory, when children actually played. Alien though the concept may be to modern minds, children were not organized into structured activities, supervised by politically correct adults. Yes, dear ones, it's true; children once enjoyed the freedom to play as they pleased, and what's more, (I hope you are all sitting down.) they had FUN!

As you may have surmised, I was one of those children. We went bare-footed all summer; we climbed trees, hung from branches, and built tree houses from the planks of fallen fences; we grabbed hold of sturdy vines and swung down mountain sides; we played Capture the Flag, Crack the Whip, Mother May I, and Aunt Dinah's Dead; on extremely hot days we played Monopoly on a shaded porch; we played Pirates, Gypsies, Cowboys and Indians, and Little House on the Prairie - from the books, not from the TV adaptations; we pulled wagons along neighborhood sidewalks, collecting "tin foil" to support the war effort; we rode bikes and skated on those sidewalks, suffering our scrapes and bruises as just temporary nuisances; we played impromtu games of softball with scruffed-up balls and falling-apart mitts, and if our quarrels broke up the game, our mothers didn't rush out to impose peace; and sometimes we did the unthinkable - the thing that would raise horror in the minds of today's grownups - sometimes we lay on our backs in the clover, gazed upon the sky and clouds, AND DID NOTHING AT ALL!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D

FREEDOM, SWEET FREEDOM!

Folic acid--that seems to be in most supplements-hmm-must be why vitamins of any kind make me feel sick-could be some of the problem. I force them down to get the nutrients, but maybe shouldn't be doing that.

EDITED :) FOR TOPIC RELEVANCE

Cissie,

I would love times like that. That sounds like a lot of fun, excercise, as well as healthy sunshine and fresh air.

Tavi-love your name-I think of rikki-tikki-tavi when I see the name. I don't know what the book is called, but I remember one of my kids read a book with a character called that. What a lovely name it is, you lucky bum. Geez, pretty much

I think that was the book rikki tiki tavi book from the Jungle Book and the mongoose was Tavi. I know I have heard that for a long time.

I am going to go lay down, I really don't feel well. It looks like the streets of r-ville might be rolled up so I am going to meander over to the park bench, pull my straw hat over my eyes and take a nap. Thank-you for all your kind words.

night
