Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Thank you- I am hoping tomorrow will be better.

Miamia

Mia Mia, I am so sorry you are not feeling well. I used to get colonics once or twice a week for a time and I always felt horrible afterwards for a day or so, they really took a lot out of me. Please rest, and I too hope tomorrow will be a better day for you :)

Miamia,

I too hope you feel better soon. Remember Rachel said the meds take about 1 month before you start feeling a little bit better.

OK..I am soooo far behind! :blink:

Did anyone actually go to work today (besides me)??? :huh:

This is a premature post...but I need to know right now....is this true????

I mean, hell, if gluten-free Big Macs exist in the world, can't the colonel help us out? :huh:

:o

Where is the gluten free Big Mac???

I will go anywhere!

Is the Big Mac bunless....cuz how can it really be a Big Mac without the bun? :unsure:

Yep Rachel, it was a pretty busy day here!

I believe there's a country in Europe that offers gluten-free Big Macs. Can't remember which one, though.

Finland, maybe?

So I see everyone has a job here...what should I be? Has anyone volunteered for Village Idiot yet?

-Dave

:lol::lol:

:o

"The Dave" would like to be the Village Idiot???

Hmmmmm....I'm pondering this. <_<

Well....far as I know that particular job has not been filled...so I'm thinking as long as you don't do anything sooooo idiotic as to bring gluteney Burritos and HAMBURGERS into Rachelville...the job is yours (if you choose to stay). :D

Besides, if you even tried something like this the geese would be all over it! Like "white on rice". B)

Oh...since that particular job wont require alot of effort on your part....you will need to actually pick something else a little more "functional". I mean...even the town bum has a side job clearing out the tumbleweeds. ;)

Miamia, Susan and all- I hope you all feel better soon. :(

miamia- Your picture is so pretty....very classic and elegant.

OK- my "colonoscopy" tomorrow :ph34r: has become quite the family drama.

My hubby (Kurt) has this huge board meeting tomorrow a.m. that he has been preparing months for so he was staying in Boston tonight (about an hour and a half away but also where I'm having my oscopy) so I made plans to have someone else bring me in in the am (his brother who was my best friend in high school and college and how I met Kurt to begin with.... uhm..OK I dated his brother first but it was like 10 years before Kurt and I got together and short-lived and clearly MUCH BETTER as a friendship but has gotten many a laugh nonetheless).

So, kind hearted BIL is going to take poopy SIL in, drop her off and Kurt is going to pick her up.

Well, my poor hubby gets to the place he's suuposed to be staying tonight with a co-worker (I insisted he NOT come home and follow his plans because this is a BIG board meeting) and the guy he's staying with comes out to talk to him. The guy's ex-girlfriend is there and she has borderline personality disorder. It took him 4 months to get her out peacefully (she was living with him and she was hitting him) :unsure:

Well, he has a great way of explaining BPD. There are two types.

Type A 2+2=5 and that's just fine

or

Type B

2+2=4 but it makes you REALLY REALLY angry

Uhm.. she's Type B. So she's there and he comes out and tells Kurt he'll have to seek shelter elsewhere while he tries to get said ex out (I feel really bad for this guy)

So Kurt's coming home and BIL is on his way up and we can't make contact. Just finally got through to BIL and told him he was relieved from his poopy duty. :D

My gosh- the drama. :huh::P:P:P

Oh and when I went to pick up the lovely medication that precedes this procedure, I'm in CVS and that dumb pop song "So you had a bad day" is playing. I wanted to scream.

Then I get to the convenient store and the woman who works there (she's a hoot- her son Jake has VERY severe colitis and had like 6 feet removed last year) has on her fake surgical scrubs and I tell her and who comes walking in but her son Jake. So from henceforth my procedure is being referred to as a "Jakeoscopy". She tells me to enjoy the red-eye. :P

So, it has begun. I should just take my lap top into my new "office" and type from there. Oy vey!

This whole thing should come with a massage.

i was so tempted to eat something completely forbidden before I took the "stuff" like a Reese's (I even briefly contemplated a cheeseburger and fries). But am now glad I didn't. well, except maybe the Reese's. Or a pint of Ben and Jerry's chubby hubby. Oh well- too late now.

evening all......must.....turn.....off.....computer.....now - - - just a quick note before trying to salvage the remains of the day...

RACHEL - - Finland - gluten-free Big Macs!! it's true! Go to the website of the Celiac Chicks, they had a whole fab trip to Finland. Finland and Italy, them's my travel plans one day....very Celiac friendly. Must regain that portion of my heart that is STILL in northern Italy.

Robbin - - OMG I think earlier you said something about that crazy JR and HE being my hand-holder....I probably would have a gluten reaction just from having him in the room....but yes, he does have a beautiful voice, and it is getting raspier with age....maybe I should call him.... ha ha h aha

Miamia - - so sorry you're not well. :( hoping you are better soon.

Patti - does your h usband still need a job.....train maker, if he wants to do that, he can...does he want to fix our cars? that doesn't sound fun.....we will come up with something....

Rinne - my gosh, Manitoba....sounds so exotic and remote! The parts of Canada I have seen were truly magical.

Andrea - - I am in Central Ca and I don't know where exactly Medford is, could look at a map, I suppose... I think the drive would take you at least 14 hours.....yeah, just see if you can get here before I eat the nuggets (not to worry, folks, am limiting myself to JUST SIX today)....

Vincent - what is that heart test? should we be concerned for you and do I need to prep the dingos?

the red letters ARE so pretty Cecile! Why don't you put some * ** * *** ** ASTERISKS in ** * * ** so it can be extra pretty..... ha ha ha ha :lol:

Clearly we have lost our minds. :wacko: Er, some of us, anyway.

Do you guys have ANY idea how hard it is to read 8 pages of posts when the only thing you can think about is "Please God, don't let anything have happened to Rachel"???????

Sorry I got lost and couldnt report in. :(

I have learned my lesson and have taken measures so that if something so tragic (yes, I went through withdrawl) were to ever happen again....the Rachelvillians wil be able to contact me. :D

I got back in my car and I said out loud, "Please God, give me something in my life that I can feel this GOOD every day . . . that I can help at least one person EVERY DAY that I could feel that I have done something good for someone . . . " It was not so long after that -that I got to open my clinic . .
Lynne, I LOVED this story!

Thanks for sharing. :D

I'm still lagging about 10 pages behind in this thread but soon as I get a chance I'm gonna have to read the "wedding thread". Looking forward to it. :)

Susan,

We are 27 miles north of the Oregon/Washington border via I-5.

Seth has taken a great interest in the heater vents. Needless to say he gets quit cold with all that cold air blowing on him. :lol::P

Actually, Tavi has the job of keeping the paths leaf free and keeping tumbleweeds out. We could give Dave the Tumbleweed job if he wants to be a resident.

Bev....stop.......you're making me.....delirious with this crazy talk of Viking men.....

ha ha ha !! Dont' forget Norway - - there is a small town there named after my ancestors on my mom's side (er - maybe they were named from the town? I don't know :blink: ) and I am 1/4 Norwegian - - yes, yes I think you're onto something....

Cecile - - my job titles are kind of obscure and don't translate well to my signature :lol: and it's long....what should I put oh goofy one?

Good googly moogly, holy cow, and jeepers. :D I am gone a few hours and wow...so much has happened! Bev, yikes-sounds like a celiac seinfeld episode at your place, lol. All jokes aside, though I hope they figure this out -too much already, right? Who knows, if you get to the bottom of your problem, it could spread like a healing balm throughout the R'ville community. I really think we all have a histamine problem. If we could get this under control, maybe we could FINALLY heal. I was so frustrated today at lunch I wanted to throw my plate across the room (no I didn't do it, it was circa 1930 thrift store gem :P Just watched Antiques Roadshow, lol) Anyhoo, I had eaten a chicken salad sandwich-all homemade-Hellman's canola mayo, home grown onion, organic celery(well scrubbed) and got a hot flushing headache within 20 minutes. This happens lately no matter what I eat. Then later around 6:00-hit with big bad D. What the heck? I am so tired of this "food war" as you all are, I am sure. My ds asked me if I wanted a " whaaaa burger to go with my french cries" when I whined. :blink: He is a "Mister" tonight too, Cecilia, lol.

EDIT-OMg--Swedish men *******************************************

Mia, you poor little darling girl-you look so sweet and kind and I am so sorry you are so ill. I hope you can get some rest and strength.

I am trying so hard to find out some answers and something that might help us all. I am going to try to fast a couple of days and then try one food at a time, journal every single thing and symptom and dissect each and every chemical in the stuff if I have to. This soooo sucks that we are so sick still after giving up so much already.

Ryan-I have had similar situations with moving that Patti had but dh came home on weekends. It actually made us appreciate each other more and helped us become closer in a lot of ways. A separation will not break the bond if the bond is strong to begin with.

Susie-Q-Whaaaa?!! Nuggets? Is this another intervention needed?!

Cissie-you tease!! I see you for a couple measly posts and then, poof! you are gone.... :( I sure miss you!

Andrea, You amaze me with the list--I read it every time too, lol!!

Rachel, do tell us about our village idiot-Is he qualified enough for the job? He looks pretty cute, though. I suspect he is lying on his application and is not really a qualified idiot, lol.

Vincent--Is the test you are having that awful thingy with the iodine in the vein?! Good grief, man, you must WHINE while on here. It is a requirement. Speaking as a whiner myself, I feel so good after a good rant :D

Done. I'll post as soon as I know what Dave and Bev's husband want to do....providing the answer the application questions.

This is Rachelville....anything is possible.

Andrea (a.k.a. Mother Hen)

You simply amaze me. :)

Who else is this organized??

Oh my goodness, please let us know everything that happens and all reports.... I had the ultrasound thing done on my heart... but I don't know what MUSA is... so I guess I'm not in the know <_<:lol:

The MUGA Scan... aka MUltiple Gated Acquisition is a pretty easy test realy. I show up and they take some blood (why do docs ALWAYS need blood? Sheesh) and then they put a radiotative dye in it and inject it back in to me. Thats the freakest part cause you blood at this point is COLD and it it freaking weird feeling it travel up you arm to your heart. Theres no way to describe how wierd that feels.. anyways after that they stick me under a big camera and I have to try and lay still for it for a while OMG thats so HARD!

As for why? The short version, my heart is all brooken and stuff.

The longer version... I have a left bundle branch block. You see there are 2 major nerve branches that contorl your heart, one on the right and one on the left. In my case the one onthe left is non functional (aka dead) so theres no "BEAT NOW" message being sent to the left side of my heart. The body is designed with a back up plan for this case, and the message can travel via the right side and jump over, but its slower and less efficent. So the end result is my heart does not pump enough blood. I score about 44 or so % in what they call "ejection faction", which is not at all good.

So I get this MUGA twice a year to see if its getting worse or stable. If its stalbe I might be okay, if its getting worse that would be very bad. A pacemaker is almost garrenteed to be in my future... oh yea. Im only 31 way to young for this junk.
