Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Julie - I love the new pic but am anxiously waiting to see one with your Tiara on!

Good googly moogly Rachel ... never doubt your royal Presidential scientificness abilities.... being spaced out and fuzzy is perfect for Rachelville!

Oh and yes... another sleepless night for me.... Sleepless in Florida.

Julie,

Is that a new picture or just lightened up. You look fantastic!

Cecile,

I thought that was Sleepless in Seattle.

Rachel,

No other could be prez of Rachelville....brain fog and all. Boy six weeks huh. Does that mean the brain fog could last that long?

I'll add Bev and Susan and Robbin as hiker/trail guides. Look for a new list tomorrow....I'll give you guys a break tonight. :P

Sheeeesh...are you guys sure you want me as your President?? :ph34r:

First, I abandoned the cult farm for a few days and now I come back all spaced out and fuzzy. :blink:

Remember, oh visored one, no gluten in R-ville and perfect balance for our bodies, hence no thyroid meds necessary, either, so all will be well. Plus we have a VP, I forgot who it is though....we will certainly forgive your Edward and Sons crackers (what are those adn I guess I should not try them?) slip-up.

am delirious from paint fumes.

never doubt your royal Presidential scientificness abilities.... being spaced out and fuzzy is perfect for Rachelville!

or....there's THAT option too! We don't care how you are, we can all be as spaced out as we want...and BTW scientificness is now another new word for us!

my poor sleepless in Florida friend.....we must find a benign drug (oxymoron) to knock you out.

Julie - excellent pic - - like Rock Star Supernova...... :lol::lol: hot rocker chick!

Isn't it the pits. When you don't feel well and need sleep, you can't get it. :(:angry:

Yeah, but at least I can come on here and play... no matter what time of night... someone is here... makes me feel less alone.

That's another great thing about this board. It's like inviting each other right into our homes, but we can still wear our pj's. Of course, lovely Susan wears her pj's out sometimes. :P

Rachel, I hope you are feeling better soon.

THYROID.!

What do you mean by it was "way low" your TSH was elevated, or t3 t4 were low?i have to get mine checked too.

I wonder about the compounding pharmacy, are the drugs even really working in your body? The armour was you said, at least keeping you at a normal TSH.

You said that you were loosing hair for the last 2 months, umm thats not somthing to mess with.

You kind of led me to believe by reading your posts that everything was improving, and that you were feeling a little bit better, due to your histamine diet, etc, and changes and discoveries.

How is your jaw?

-please answer me back this time, dont like being ignored, thanks

Our VP is Patti.....shes been handlin things while I've been "lost" and now "found" but yet....still not all there.

Actually the brainfog is lifting. I think the low thyroid is causing a constant mental dullness....but this major brainfog was caused by something evil. Either Auxigro or gluten. :angry: I did start eating lettuce again 2 days ago....right when I started having bad headaches and brainfog. My hands smell sweet. Thats what happened when I ate the sweet potatoes!!! :o

I'm thinking it might be the lettuce since I ate some this afternoon and immediately afterward....major head pressure and brainfog. Damn....I've been Auxigro'ed again. <_<

Didnt I say I was gonna stay away from all veggies cuz I have bad luck?? Seeee....it never fails. Veggies are my worst nightmare...and then...on top of it...I never "suspect" them because they are so healthy. I totally forgot about the lettuce and kept on eating it til my head was about to explode. :blink:

or....there's THAT option too! We don't care how you are, we can all be as spaced out as we want...and BTW scientificness is now another new word for us!

Celia....another word for the Rachelville vocabulary. I love it. :lol:

Now if only I can remember how to spell that one. :P

Have to hit F5 now to see the Super Nova hot rocker chick!! :lol::lol:

:o

THYROID.!

Yes....thyroid....its low.

What do you mean by it was "way low" your TSH was elevated, or t3 t4 were low?

Yeah...low thyroid and a need for increased meds = elevated TSH and low T4/T3.

I wonder about the compounding pharmacy, are the drugs even really working in your body? The armour was you said, at least keeping you at a normal TSH.

I'm still on Armour. I suspect if the Armour wasnt working at all I'd be pretty messed up considering I have no thyroid gland. My hair was falling out....thats about it. If I was laying in bed all day with fatigue, aches and pains I'm pretty sure I would have made testing a higher priority. Once the dose is corrected TSH will be normal again. I already knew I would need to increase....I had the labslip since May...just didnt bother with it till now.

You said that you were loosing hair for the last 2 months, umm thats not somthing to mess with.

Ummm...yeah...I lost more hair than usual. I realized this 2 months ago and I knew my meds were gonna need adjusting. My last haircut the lady mentioned it to me and I said I needed to adjust my meds...it just took me awhile to take the test. Shame on me.

I know all about thyroid and meds since I've had thyroid disease for quite some time now. Thanks for your concern though. :)

I just have other priorities right now.....like figuring out why I'm having reactions to everything and fixing it. It just seemed more important to me than worrying about some hairloss. Sorry if this upsets you. :unsure:

You kind of led me to believe by reading your posts that everything was improving, and that you were feeling a little bit better, due to your histamine diet, etc, and changes and discoveries.

Ummm...do you feel that I was trying to deceive you or something? :huh:

I post things as they happen in my life....thats what I've been doing from the start of this thread (and every post prior to this thread). When I post that I'm feeling good....its because I'm feeling good. If I post that something is helping me....its because it is. If I feel bad or make a mistake...I post that I feel bad and I try to figure out what I did wrong. Thats how I learn.

I felt good the past couple weeks. I ate something that caused a reaction yesterday and now I dont feel so great. I never thought...nor did I imply....that I would never make another mistake...or never feel bad again. Spinach happens. Even in Rachelville.

As far as I'm concerned hairloss doesnt rate as lack of improvement....it was really the least of my concerns. Sorry I didnt post about it. Sorry if you felt deceived because I failed to mention this.

How is your jaw?

Its fine...it opens and closes and all that good stuff. My jaw got better a long time ago and I told you that a long time ago. I post all my woes right here on this very thread. If something happens to my jaw....you will read it here. Today my reaction consisted of a bad headache and bad brainfog...I think thats what I mentioned in my post. Yeah...I'm pretty sure but like I said I'm kind of brainfogged so maybe I forgot. :unsure:

-please answer me back this time, dont like being ignored, thanks

I stayed up WAY past my bedtime to make sure I didnt ignore any of your questions. :D

Sorry if you felt I was ignoring you. If I dont respond its generally because you've already asked me the question several times and I've already answered it several times....thats all. If anything changes....you'll read about it here....just like everyone else. I'm not trying to deceive you or anyone else....I'm trying to get better. Thats it.

In the future if you have anything negative to say to me....just think about it....and then dont do it. Thats not what this thread is about and I would like to keep it positive.

If you feel you must....pm me...dont bring it into the thread. Thanks. :)

Also there are alot of caring people here that have responded to your posts....trying to help you. Maybe you could acknowledge them??? You keep addressing me....even though I'm not responding. I'm sorry for your troubles but I dont have the answers for you. If I could make everyone better I would...I'm just trying to get myself better and the only way I know how is to be very vigilent with my diet, research, work with my doctors and come here for friendship, laughs and support.

Its therapuetic...try to have fun in your life, be positive, do things that bring enjoyment into your days. It helps to take away the negative things and replace them with things that will have a positive effect on you and this in turn will have a positve effect on your health.

It never fails, I go to bed, wake up and have almost 3 pages to catch up on! My body just wants to go to sleep around 10 and wake up around 6--easier if I just go with it :D

Celia, I hope you were able to get some sleep last night. I know if I get glutened (even mildly), I have trouble sleeping. Did you have to use spinach? :unsure:

Susan, I trust you're keeping your place well ventilated while you're painting--I always hate sleeping in the house with all of the paint fumes in the air--but unless I camp out in the yard, I got no choice :lol: Did you finish--and most important, did you have enough paint? I know you were getting nervous about that.

Rachel--How great is it to have you back!! Interesting how different foods affect people. I can't do fruits, except banana and a couple others, but veggies are fine for me. I eat salad, potato, and other veggies every day. I do wash and peel everything first--I must not be sensitive to the stuff on them. Thank goodness I can eat them because those and meat are pretty much my whole diet.

Don't feel bad about the crackers--I feel the same way about Lay's chips! They can affect me (sometimes, I think it depends on the bag), but I really want to be able to eat them. I wish someone would make a frickin potato chip in a non-gluten facility. <_<

Sorry about your thyroid :( it's always something :angry:

Good morning to everyone--and welcome to our new residents :D

NIkki, have I wished you a fantastic holiday yet? And bullocks on the cleaning, ( :ph34r: oops, that's probably a naughty word in England)....we will miss you!

LOL! :lol: My thoughts exactly where cleaning is concerned!

Susan,glad you've picked up a bit :)

I'm not off on me hols until next Sunday (13th) (if I can get my act together,gosh,haven't even tackled the ironing yet!!)

How exiting,2 new members!!

Beverly and Judy,good to have you aboard!

Rachel-Step away from them crackers girl! :lol:

Patti and Robbin-Terry is seeing doc about his back tomorrow-if nothing else I'm hoping he'll give him a strong painkiller-let you know.

Cecile-how are you after your meal out??(Not in a spinached mess I hope)

Well back to the cleaning-good googly moogly(I've been dying to say that) a truly heinious task!! :lol:

Dang, someone has a life, we get all worried and send out the dingos.... :P

(except that our FOUNDER usually does post every day, so that was worrisome!)

At least the dingos won't get bored :P

Susan -- I hope you find some relief from your week in the climbing. Sometimes just getting away for a day can do wonders for someones mood.

Thanks to all who responded to my little work dilema. Although I would have to say that ATC is not the most stressful job there is. It can be where I am as I am at a base that trains pilots, and they can make it interesting. However, I think like any job it's only as stressful as you make it. I try not to bring bad days home with me, nor bring a rough family day into work.

Rachel -- Sorry to hear about the crackers. Hope you recover quickly and the fogl ifts so yo ucan enjoy what is left of the weekend?

This may be a silly question, but is it a long weekend in the States as well?

Gotta run for now.

Nikki-Thanks for the welcome..I'm coming and will feel honored to be appointed to the position of 'Landscape helper under the direction on the master gardner Robbin...If on the days, i can't get the compression stockings on (like today :ph34r: or the custom made ones :ph34r: or the wrap :ph34r: (Just pitched them over my head and went off to Rachelville---) can i please help the ladies working with Armetta in the library..as i have the credentials for that job..spent 15 years in the medical library..but my medical skills are 'mental only ' and we all know how the mind goes South with this disease

....So If Lynne can garden with a walker (I use a cane) I'll help in the gardens still.....

Don't know what i would have done with/out Patti and Susan yesterday..It was a 'down under day'

Wondered at times if i really was in Australia????

It's a new day and Rachel is home so all is well with the world.

Vincent..many of my posts to you on here went 'unnoticed by you :lol:' but since i know how hard it is to look at this thread, i just figured you didn't see them...I don't have any dingos but i could send my cat..altho he bites..and didn't want my Vincent to get attacked.

Hubby just brought me coffee so going into the shower now and then :ph34r: try the leg dang wrap again..

Hope Susan and her Dingos get home safe and sound..esp that she has a good time.

hugs

Judy

Daxin, it isn't a long weekend in the states, as far as I know :lol:

Unless there is some holiday/day of observance that has slipped my mind :unsure:

Judy, hi! To me you aren't new. :lol: You've been around since the beginning of this thread, popping in ocasionally.

YAY Judy,

I'm so glad you're staying in R-Ville my friend!!

What a perfect job for you...I was gonna suggest something in gardening for you but its all taken care of! :D

I posted to you in my "lost post" but I was so "foggy" yesterday couldnt remember any of it. :rolleyes:

Beverly,

Welcome to you too!!! Did you get a job yet?? Oh...I recall something about climbing instructer...is that right? Or is it English teacher? :huh:

Sheeesh....I dont remember half of what I read yesterday.

I got my results back from the C-Diff test. It was normal. I had no bacteria or yeast overgrowth this time....still no parasites and I had normal growth of good bacteria. My doctor had put a big happy face on my test results. :D

At least I know everythings good as far as that goes now. Did you get your second results back yet? Are you feeling any better?

I feel the same way about Lay's chips! They can affect me (sometimes, I think it depends on the bag), but I really want to be able to eat them. I wish someone would make a frickin potato chip in a non-gluten facility.

Patti, hi! Have you tried Red Bliss Potato Chips? I think they are by Terra. I usually eat these when I have potato chips, made with red bliss potatoes and olive oil. I don't seem to have a problem with them, but maybe it's just me.

Nikki- you reminded me we need cleaning and ironing fairies in Rachelville :lol:

Judy- glad you are making yourself a permanant resident :)

Great news on the C-Diff test Rachel! One less thing to worry about :lol:

:( an english teacher? Welllll I guess it was only time before some one came along that would not like me. :(

Oh...but I'm NOT that kind of English teacher! My favorite kids were the troublemakers who couldn't spell. I like all my students (except the one who threatened to blow up my car). And I NEVER give detentions. :D

:lol::lol::lol:

but I thought of a new job for Bev - unless she really WANTs to be the English teacher (our jobs are usually more fun than the ones we have - or don't have :ph34r: - in real life) - - - I nominate Bev to head up our new climbing and mountaineering section of R-ville, and I will be her assistant if I can get my arse in shape again.... BEV, what say you??

Oh my yes- I really do like to teach writing (especially to the trouble makers :D ) so I'll make up my own job here. I will be the mountains of Rachelville Activities Coordinator (do the mountains have a name? How about the Rachleville Range and we can each have a peak named after us like Mt. Rachel (she'd be the tallest) and Mt. Dingo and Mt. Patti. I'll open my school at the base so I can teach and then I'll import the handsome, gluten-free climbing guides (you know to whom I refer Ms. Susan- your future husband) and ski instructors and the avalanche dogs (we'll get then specially trained from Switzerland as we don't want the dingos to get hurt). I'll just oversee the Rachelville Mountain Activities Center.

How does THAT sound???? :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::D:D:D

Thanks all for the warm welcome! This thread is awesome! And I happily accept whatever position you deem appropriate. :D (well- except town ho, but I'm assuming prostitution doesn't even EXIST in Rachelville because it is filled with perfect happiness!).

Rachel- Man, sorry about the thyroid but glad the C-Diff is gone. My C-diff retest came back negative but I still feel like holy heck. Something is NOT right (diarrhea, joint pain, exhausted, headaches, skin feels burnt). Verrry strange. So I might get scoped this week- oh fun! I'm wondering if it's my thyroid. Thanks for asking and I'll keep you posted.

OK- I'm off for the day. Friends rented a lake house and even tho I feel poopy, I'm going up (because I think my apartment is possessed- but that's a story for another day). everyone have a happy day and I'll see you tonight! Thanks again for welcoming me with open arms.

Karen, the cows can be lactose free, but they also have to be casein free. What great cows we will have and they will have the cleanest teats - he he.

Isn't Rachelville the greatest place to live. We will never have to worry about being glutened or cross contaminated.

Went to bed early and woke up to three pages to read to catch up.

We also need a wonderful restaurant in Rachelville so that we can safely eat out. :):)

Oh good googly moogly......so many funny things and since I STILL don't know how to do multiple quotes, can't even respond to them......I am cracking up this morning.....obviously our two "new" residents will fit in quite well, Judy whose mind went so far SOUTH she thought she was in Oz :lol: ....and Bev. TOWN HO, sorry, we alreayd have one - kind of ;) - she's our Altoid Ambassador.....bring on the mountain dogs and the climbers, Bev...... :)

Robbin - yes oh my yes, cabins, mine is going to be at the base of Mount DINGO....

Cecile - - you are neither an oxy nor a moron, just flat-out SILLY is what you are.... :) And a great joy to my life....

Vincent - - you'll note that we have never sent out the dingo search team for ANY male, since you are all such sporadic posters....and we have seen you around the board, you know....but don't you worry, we do need our town troublemaker, who evidently will now be the teacher's PET...

Rachel - lettuce - - oh dear. doesn't seem to agree with you.... :( I sense we'll have some posts with wordage of scientificness soon.....ha ha

Hi Nikki - how's the cleaning going? absolutely dreadful, isn't it....you should see my bedroom, I think a bomb went off in it :ph34r:

HI Ryan - - had something to reply and forgot it - - if I go back, I could lose the post...

Evidently my young nieces are not even awake yet, so I am just dawdling around....no hurry as we'll be there all day. I am SO out of shape, I was up quite a bit during the night worrying about how I can even climb any more.... :o and what I will take to eat..... And how I"ll be the oldest and most out-of-shape one.....with gray roots today.... :ph34r: (also up worrying about the PAINT situation....oh Lord....it was supposed to be enough to cover all the square footage.....argh)

HI Patti and Julie, who else....hi Christine....come join us here and have some FUN with us! The silliness helps in our recovery....you know, I was thinking, I am quite silly with all my friends here in town, of course, but none of them are Celiacs, and so it's such a comfort to find fun, warm, wonderful people who are not only Celiac but goofballs as well....a great comfort to me. I joined the party late and I"M so glad you all let me crash your thread.

gotta dig out my dusty old climbing gear and get ready.....

Love you guys....hi to anyone I missed....
