Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Sudoku? It is the devil's work, my friends......another one of those things they make you do in hell, along with Excel spreadsheets, don't forget........ :lol::lol::lol:

OMG, premature post, drive-by hello, I have only read the last page, :ph34r: am so behind, just saying hi to everybody from my land of Christmas Chaos and the inevitable suffering from procrastination in which I find myself almost every year! :huh::o But I made marshmallows last night, OMG, SOOOOOOOOO good and so tasty.....need to send them off in the mail so I won't eat them all! help me stay away from these fluffly white dream squares..............

I don't know when I"ll catch up..... :huh: Wub you guys!

:lol::lol::lol: We discovered this game on Chevroncars.com/games/

I love puzzle type stuff!

Those marshmellows to sound good. Wonder if I'd still think so after I saw the ingredients.....definately better than store bought I bet. :)

Wow Susan--you MADE marshmallows? That's incredible--they sound delicious.

I was in CVS earlier, and saw a Sudoko book in with the magazines. I thought about Andrea! :D

:lol:

I brought mine to Bioset last night. She looked at it and said "You better start out slow". She tested it and said "2 drops....thats it." :huh:

I told her it says to take one drop and then slowly increase. She said "yeah....you can increase after a couple days...increase to 2 drops a day." I asked how many days I should stay on only 2 drops??

She was like "Ummm.....indefinately....thats all you can handle...2 drops."

How the heck am I gonna kill anything with 2 tiny drops?? :blink:

You'll get there....give it time Rachel. Two drops is a start for now.

Not to worry, we're still in the "I'm sure we can fix you" phase, lol. I may be special in a few weeks though. :lol:

:lol: We already think your a special person, but let us know when your doctor thinks so. :)

Dr. Rick wants to see me in two weeks...can't remember why, lol. I guess cuz I'm sick now...don't know. I should start taking a tape recorder with me. :lol:

Hope you feel better after all is said and done. Glad you are starting to get some answers. :)

And does anyone else see kielbasa when looking at the word klebsiella, lol. :lol:

:lol: Me too.

Miamia, hang in there. You'll start getting some results soon.

I was sitting here (playing Sudoku) and thinking..."boy the board has been quiet". I haven't gotten any email notifications today and didn't realize anyone had been posting. I just signed on to see, just in case and I was 2 pages behind.

I dont...mainly cuz I dont know what Kielbasa is?? :unsure:

I dont know what Klebsiela is either?? :unsure: Is it a parasite.....ummmm I mean....is it a "bug"? :ph34r:

Did you ever get tested for H. Pylori before? I know HN tested me for it and also the GI did when I had my endoscopy....but I didnt have it.

Keilbasa is a sausage, lol. Klebsiella and H.Plylori are both bactera. I had no parasites and didn't have C.Diff. Dr. R at Camino tested for H.Plylori when he did the endoscope back in April, but he didn't find any. Dr. R at HN said it can easily be missed in the same way blunted villi can be missed if they didn't take the sample from the right spot, but that H.Plylori and klebsiella in the stool can't be missed. I thought they checked for it again when I had the stool testing done by Camino back in February...I know she looked for C.Diff but maybe not H.Pylori.

I made an executive decision today....since I decided there was no way that I had the power to send out Christmas cards this year, and I was really sad about that....I decided I'll write upa nice Christmas letter and insert pictures and send that out....not what I wanted to do, but sometimes, we have to learn to say no, right?! (I am learning, albeit slowly, I'm learning).

xoxo

That's what we do.

Hope you have a good holiday weekend......that goes for everyone.

Just a quick hello ! Mango - did you like Aust ?

Anyone think I am onto something here ? - my friends 18yo daughter has mult food allergies, excema, and CFS.All still out of control after 2 years of a naturopath. Could that be Lyme ? They lived in Chicago for a while. And now live in Sydney which has Lyme.

My DH who I wondered re Lyme - now is responding brilliantly to his new cortisone meds for adrenal fatigue. He just needed the more bio identical ones. That's my xmas present - a new man :lol:

Merry Xmas to all. Its hot as hot here and we have Xmas in shorts and have cold cold food like snapper, crayfish and prawns !

I like when you are gabby- especially sinnce all of us have been so quiet!! Plus with your new picture it is only fitting that you would be gabby- it is so upbeat!! It sounds like you have alot to deal with with all the new test results but hopefully they will lead to some new improvements in your health.

Andrea-

I am a puzzle girl too-

Crosswords and sudoko. I am really a dork and look forward to new york times weekend crosswords- Yes really a dork.

Carla-

I say you should just pull that thanksgiving thing if your tired figure out what needs to be done and assign tasks to everyone - you deserve to relax!!!

i am alright I am trying to get stuff done early while i have a liitle energy I just made like 100 biscotti- ithought of you with your cookies!! Of course right now I can't eat them because of candida issues but at least my house smells really good. Its crazy that I can;t eat cookies that are wheat dairy and soy free but I am looking at it as funny instead of sad and I know the people I am amking them for will enjoy them and that makes me happy. Now I may go attempt to wrap gifts- a scary thought .

How are you?

I'm good, and in the same boat that you are. All of those yummy cookies, and I can't eat them. :angry: Oh well, the rest of the family will enjoy them.

I didn't feel well after eating them, and now have developed a yeast infection :ph34r: I think it must be from all of the excess sugar. I just can't believe how sensitive my system had become. I was so careful to use safe ingredients--none of anything I'm sensitive to.

What the heck are we gonna do??? I thought by now, some of this would have cleared up, but I'm more sensitive than ever. Ugh! At least we have each other--people try, but just don't understand this type of thing.

I finally did get all of the gifts wrapped--a lot of them had to be sent out of town, and we did that on Monday. Believe me, when you finally get through with all of that wrapping, you will feel so much better! It was a load off my mind :D

I did some of the wrapping so I jsut ahve to finish. Since I ahve been sick it seems like I really can't stand having anything I have to do - it eats at me. So I just try to get things done right away. I guess part of it Is i never know how I am going to feel so if I feel like I can do it I am better just to get it done as opposed to putting it off.

I am definitly more sensitive now than I ever was before I ahve said this before but I swear the more I cut things out and the longer I am off something the more sensitive I become. It is the opposite reaction alot of people have . Thats why at this point even if something leaves me alittle uncomfortable I try to just cut down on it as opposed ot eliminating it completly- If I keep doing that I will end up with nothing to eat.

I agree thank god we have eachother!! Who else could possibly understand these things?

Mia, I think I will do what I did Thanksgiving (this was two Thanksgivings ago). I also told Adam that I'm not going to feed everyone coming over ... I'll have out appetizers and sweets, but I'm not doing the whole dinner. Just the thought of not feeding all of them makes me feel better already. They'll be able to make a meal out of it, but just the fact that it doesn't have to seem like a meal makes it easier! Maybe I can find some jewel colored plastic plates ... totally not me, I'm usuallly a "It's Christmas, get out Grandma's china!!" person. We will have our "traditional" Christmas dinner Christmas Eve, but it's different than what most people think of for Christmas -- shrimp, cheese grits, asparagus, and cole slaw -- so it's easy. The kids talk about this dinner all year and could care less what we eat Christmas day.

Sounds like most of you need a Morgan! Last night I gave her gifts to wrap, told her who they were for and she wrapped them. I'm all done with Christmas shopping and wrapping except for her stuff, which I'm doing today with Adam. I tried to help wrap, but I was too sore to lean over and do it. I'm assuming this increase in muscle aches may be due to the samento. I'm also lifting weights, but I've been doing that for years and it doesn't make me sore anymore.

My family is all understanding, the big difference with you guys is you can relate!

Georgie, it could be Lyme. I have rashes and CFS symptoms, too. I also get some joint pain, sometimes, but that has gotten better going gluten-free. Muscle aches, too. The only way to know is to get tested as I don't know if you have LLMD's in Australia.

I think it would be fun having Christmas in the summertime, though it would be a little strange. This year is strange enough as we've had weather in the 60's! We used to live in Florida, but misteltoe and poinsettias grow outside there, so at least it looked a little like Christmas.

Ha, when I lived in Hawaii, it was really hard to get used to Christmas...it just didn't seem natural for it to be near 70, lol.

Speaking of becoming more sensitive. The one thing I DO remember the doctor saying yesterday, is that since I have adrenal fatigue and all this other stuff going on that it only takes a little extra stress to push me over the edge...stress can be anything out of the ordinary, and there was a whole list of things from the obvious to just eating something your system doesn't like or not getting enough rest. He is convinced Disneyworld put me over the top because I wasn't following my elimination diet, ate more sugar (in the form of fruit and maple syrup) than normal and wasn't getting enough rest. He thinks I did okay on the cruise because I was getting plenty of rest and my only eating sin was extra fruit. It's like how on earth can anyone get better if EVERYTHING turns out to be a stressor, lol. Truly, you all are the only ones who can related to it.

Georgie - could be Lyme. After reading about it lately, it seems like it might be much more common than people think.

Mia - I'm sort of opposite, since I've been sick having things to do makes me overwhelmed and a little mad, lol. I don't have the energy to do anything so I just don't do it.

I used to do things like Mia, "If I don't do it now, I certainly won't do it later." But now I find I physically cannot do things I used to do. If I try, I will get dizzy and worry about falling down. I've never actually fainted, but I've come close.

oh no donna-

I didn't mean I am overly productive- and I feel the sme way I get really overwhelmed and angry when I ahve stuff that I ahve to do so I freak out and feel like I have to get it done right away - this usally ends with me feeling really crappy but I just can';t stand knowing there is anything to do it drives me insane

I'm like that, too. Especially now, with the holidays and everything.

I go to the hospital for my surgery in 2 weeks. I am so afraid of eating while there. I plan to bring everything I need with me--but have no idea what shape I'll be in after the surgery. I am thinking this thing to death, and honestly, it's driving me nuts.

After I get home, the recovery period is 6 weeks. The last tme I had abdominal surgery, (a c-section), I did too much too soon and developed adhesions--which I still feel after 22 years. The doctor is fixing those and my old scar, but this time, I want to give myself time to heal correctly. I am terrible at asking for help--just yesterday I told my parents to wait to come down until after I was feeling better. Can't stand the thought of someone doing my housework for me as I lay around. It's just is the way I am.

My husband says he and Matt will pick up the slack--they will, but I know this whole thing is going to be hard. I may hire someone to come in once a week to do the basics. I'm just overwhelmed, and I haven't even let myself thing about the surgery itself--just all the other stuff.

I wish I could go to sleep and wake up in February!

Aw, thanks Judy! I'm ok, really. Just nerves :lol:

The woman 2 doors down from me has a cleaning woman--I may ask her for her number.

Didn't mean to sound tense--I was doing laundry, and had to run to catch the phone before the machine picked up. :)

Patti, my pregnancies were rough and I usually had to hire someone to help clean. Once I got better, I wanted to get back to cleaning my own house, but it was a HUGE help to have someone come in to do it. I would have someone now, but Adam says to just have the kids do it .... it's not that we can't afford it, I think he just wants them to have the lesson of picking up the slack and helping when needed. After the doc visit in January, if it seems I'm going to be like this for months longer, I'll push for hiring someone then. Just ask around, I'm sure some of your friends know someone.

I think the samento might be causing a herx ... I got up and ate, and was going to go to the gym with Morgan. I knew I wouldn't be able to do much at the gym today, which happens often, but I ended up going back to bed instead, which is where I would be now if we weren't having our regular service on our heaters (LOL :P ). I just feel achy and tired. A little nauseous. All of it is "normal" for me, but has wiped me out more than normal. Feels like a bad hangover, which makes me wonder if alcohol causes a herx and that's why it makes those with Lyme feel so bad ... I mean, we kill bacteria with alcohol, it seems possible.
