Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure but it seems plausible to me. I've had cats in the past and I've never had that problem, although we've not been gone through the week.

Andrea....I think I've seen mold grow on stuff in the yard before.....like dog poop....which I dont clean on a daily basis. I just never seen this happen in my house...and especially on the carpet. It was shocking! :o

I asked M. if this means we've got mold spores all over the house or something?? :unsure:

She said I should know by now that mold can grow just about anywhere. She said she doesnt know how...but it just does. :huh:

She said it doesnt mean the mold is everywhere....it just grew on the food that the cat barfed up. I hope shes right. I was scared. :ph34r:

Those parties were such fun, remember Floridian getting "spinached". :lol:

ROFL...

Who could forget SPINACH!! :lol::lol:

After Celia "spinached" herself there were pages and pages of spinaching going on....the word had multiple meanings! :lol:

I wonder what the heck lurkers thought when we were constantly making jokes about "spinaching" ourselves. :lol:

I think M is probably right. You did say the food was still whole. It's amazing how they can gulp food down whole. :blink:

Took a trip down memory lane....searched "spinached" in Rachelville. B)

Here is some of what I found...

What does "spinached" mean anyway?? :unsure:

Posted by Lisa Baker

As far as I am concerned or informed, it's the primary symptom of Celiac. But, I'm not as quick as others, but it has adapted well to my use. And use it every opportunity appropriate.

Posted by Rachel--24

Its meaning seems to have evolved into...well, just about anything you want! :lol:

Dunno what to make of it and actually I'm feeling rather "spinached" right now so gonna sign off for awhile. You figure it out. :P

Posted by Mango04

I hope everyone has a wonderful spinach-free evening (er- is "spinached" a good thing? I might have missed that). Keep relevating! B)

Posted by Rachel--24

Ummm...getting "spinached" would not be a good thing at all....just ask Celia's hubby. :lol:

Posted by JulieM

I still don't know the official definition of "spinach"

At this point it seems to be just about anything.

Posted by JenyAndreson

Maybe it's a replacement for cuss words. Kind of like the word "Smurf". As in..."My Mom was a real spinach at Thanksgiving last year."

Posted by DingoGirl

yes! or, it could mean you, um, soiled your bed, and I don't mean WET the bed....as in, "OMG I've spinached the bed again..."

Posted by Rinne

Okay, if relevations is the word for an OMG moment in Rachelville then I think saying, "I'm spinached" means I am rolling on the floor laughing my *** off. :lol:

Posted by DingoGirl

wellll, technically, we started out by saying something about laughing so hard we spinached our pants...I can't trace the actual etymoligical (sp?) origins of our new word....but our dingbat Cecile had it all over her bed, there may have been some mention (probably by yours truly ) of the fact that it was a good thing it was only SPINACH, and, um, not something else ("I spinached the bed")....I don't know....it's all hazy now as my brain seems to have turned to.....SPINACH.... :lol: and in that instance I mean MUSH....

Posted by TheDave

So pulling a "Dave" and "spinached" are similar? That's not good...

How to use "spinached" in a sentence....the correct usage:

Posted by DingoGirl

and please note that it can either be a noun - "you are such a little spinach" or a verb "I laughed so hard I spinached my pants"...

Posted by Mango04

Food is now the least of my worries. I am feeling a bit spinached over trying to find a job, but...oh well, I'm having fun. I still don't know exactly what spinached means, by the way, but I thought it'd be fun to try to use it in a sentence.

Posted by Robbin

Ok, he is the village idiot, geeeez, he doesn't even know what wordage is. I bet he never heard of being spinached, or even had a relevation, lol

Getting "spinached"....

Posted by DingoGirl

Ryan - was it you that posted something about Blue Diamond Nut Thins? Welllll.....finally tried them last night and am rubbish today (spinached) - - feel like lead and can hardly move

Posted by Picard

These do not sound like fun! I think I am going to be spinached and pulling a Dave all at once. The testing service just warned me I may be visiting the porcelain god after both tests. :blink:

Posted by DingoGirl

...but remember when it all happened, at that time I think our President was in a gluten coma, she may not have been working at that time and was permantly spinached to her bed....

Posted by Rachel--24

I was out of commission during that time. What else did I have to do with my time as I lay spinached out in my bed all day! There was nothing else on TV at that time....and yes, I was in a gluten coma....stuffing myself with Big Macs and Macaroni and cheese.

Posted by DingoGirl

where's Rachel? do you think she's spinached herself into oblivion from too much ice cream???????

Posted by Rachel--24

That is freakin hilarious!!! I cant believe Celia got "spinached" like that!!

Posted by Rinne

I cannot stop laughing about this. :lol: I am glad it helped given it made such a mess, not glutened, spinached. :lol:

Posted by Nikki-UK

Rachel-hope you're not laying in a spinached mess

Posted by Robbin

Who spinached themselves? :blink:

Posted by Penguin

As part of my last 21 days of gluten eating, I had a GIGANTIC greek meal, and nearly spinached myself because of it! :blink:

Posted by DingoGirl

OHHH GAAAAWDD and now I almost spinached myself..... :lol: or at least peed my pants...

Posted by JerseyAngel

How is my spinached, square-wheeled twin Celia this morning? I laugh whenever I read you clip-clopping along :lol:

Posted by DingoGirl

hope I don't spinach the bed tonight. ;)

Not getting "spinached".....

Posted by Rinne

I'm "lurking' along with all of you though not so talkative today, not a great day but at least I haven't been spinached. :lol:

Posted by MtnDog

Stay away from the ice cream, auxigro, NUGGETS, hershey's, bird poop, Bumble Bars, and ticks. But.... indulge in some romance. You can't get glutened, spinached, nuggeted or soyed by it! It's healthy.

Posted by Evie

Sorry you got broccolied, not spinached!!!

The second word in the Rachelville Dictionary....Spinach/Spinached/Spinaching

Posted by dlp252

:lol: Spinached! :lol:

Posted by DingoGirl

like, holy moly, Rachel needs to grow her own vegetables, and, I hope Cecile feels okay today, and how was Lynne's wedding, etc. etc.....and how some of my friends are usign the word SPINACHED now...ha ha.....

Posted by JerseyAngel

Great idea, Mia! Now "Dave" will go on the list of "Rachelisms"--right after "spinached"

How it all started....

Posted by Floridian

To lighten today up a little.... I HAVE to tell you all this......this morning Tony woke up with wet goop all over and on him and freaked out, he thought my insides were coming out.... all I had last night was a package of spinach so I used this instead of my ice pack... and this was a frozen cardboard box and I fell asleep with it on my tummy and of course rolled around during my sleep... well the spinach thawed and oozed out of the corners...

HILARIOUS!!! :lol:

It was his food that he barfed up and they were whole.....apparantly he doesnt chew at all?? :blink:

Anyways....when I went to pick it up underneath the food was completely black with MOLD!!! :o

I've never seen anything like this and my cat has puked a gazzilion times in his 13 years. The carpet was BLACK. I totally freaked out.

Not only was I staring at black mold but my light grey carpet was coated with it!! :blink:

I didnt even get a mask or anything....I just started cleaning it up. It didnt seem like it would come clean but thankfully its about 98% better.

Is this normal?? Like if my cat barfed earlier in the week and it was moist....could it just grow mold like that?? :unsure:

Well, yes, mold can grow quickly. I've never been gone as long as a week, but I know it doesn't take long. An example, I eat nut butters, when the jar is empty I fill it with water to soften up the left overs so I can rinse it out clean for recycling. I usually leave it in the sink with the cap on while I let it soak. One day a couple of weeks ago, I guess I had left the jar in the sink for a week, and decided it was time to empty and recycle. When I opened the jar it was full of mold! Even with all the water...what the stupid mold could find of the peanut butter, it grew on!!! And, there was a lot of it!

I am questioning my diagnosis. I really wonder whether or not mercury and candida are more my problems at this time than Lyme. I also had a filling break about three years ago and may have swallowed some of it, in fact I pretty much think I did though I wish I didn't. Anyways it was the winter before that that I had the tick rash and I think the mercury just took me down. I've been taking the chlorella for two weeks now and am noticing an improvement but then I am doing so much to lean in the direction of health that it is difficult to pinpoint just one thing and say it is what is doing it. I took the Samento for four months and did not see a signifigant change but then I got well enough to be willing to experiment and that in itself is a real leap forward. I'm not sitting round pulling the skin away from my torso because of the pain and I haven't been doing that for a while. I've also heard that taking Samento for too long can lead to the Lyme retreating to a cyst form.

I've just been thinking about all this...while I was talking to Scott yesterday he asked if I had lyme too. I told him I didn't think so because Anna's testing didn't pick it up, but that I have so many of the symptoms. Later in the day I was thinking about that again, and truly, the symptoms for all three things, lyme, candida and mercury are just to interchangeable that it's hard to know what's coming from what. I still don't think I could have lyme if Anna didn't find it, but heck, the darned symptoms are almost interchangeable!!! I don't blame you or Rachel for questioning what is causing your symtpoms, although I DO think both of you have lyme...it just may not be what's causing your symptoms.

I guess I am relying on ART to put the focus where it needs to be....I dont know of any other test that can indentify the problems as well as prioritize them. I'm hoping all that I've heard about this method proves to be true.

This is what I'm hoping for me and this is what I told Scott...I just need to know what to start with cuz I just feel like I'm a ship without a rudder now...adrift in a sea of symptoms which could be from any darned thing. :blink::lol:

I'm sure after my week of heinous mood swings my mom would disagree.....and most likely would ask that everyone please refrain from Rachelizing. :lol:

Rinne, the borrelia can change into cyst form (and two other forms), that's why my LLMD has me on three different antibiotics for it. I've also read that taking Artemisia on its own can make the babesia become more resistant ... that's why they generally prescribe Zithromax or Biaxin with it. I never had the night sweats nightly, it's always been sporadically.

Looking back I can see two things that I've done right, one is get my fillings removed and took the supplements to get rid of the mercury, the other is being proactive about keeping down the candida population. Back in 91 when I got the fillings out and went on the anti-candida diet, I put the Lyme into remission for over a decade.

In my opinion, if addressing the mercury and the candida gets your Lyme into remission, why bother addressing it? It's my understanding that it's unlikely to ever be totally eradicated, that your immune system eventually has to learn to keep it in check.

However, I don't think that just because you feel better getting rid of mercury and candida that there is no Lyme. I think it's more likely that you are just feeling better getting stress off your immune system. My immune system has been able to handle this Lyme all these years in the absence of stress ... stress is my trigger for symptoms -- big stress, not ordinary stress.

I went back :ph34r: ... Rinne, you had 31, 34, and 39 all show up as IND (not negative). They are all very specific to Lyme ... I wouldn't be questioning it too much ... but I don't think you're wrong on focusing on the candida and mercury. I think the three -- Lyme, mercury, and candida -- all play a role. You could always get retested for the Lyme .... now that you've been stirring it up you might test more strongly positive.

NGG, I don't pay attention to reviews ... in fact, many times if a movie has won an award, it's a clear indication I won't like it. :lol::lol:

This is what I talked to Dr. Harris about at IgeniX. I figure he's the expert at reading these tests right??

I had those bands as IND's too. He said this does not mean I have Lyme or dont have Lyme. It basically means nothing.

It means that the technician running the test wasnt sure. He puts IND when he isnt sure....it doesnt mean anything except that the test should be redone to hopefully get more clear results.

After my talk with him I believe that there is reason to question when the results arent clear. When I asked him if my test results suggest Lyme he said "No". He also said the results dont rule it out. The results are a big ?? when they are IND.

A person can have IND's on their results and NOT have Lyme Disease.

It really doesnt matter which bands are IND....what matters are positives and negatives.

I think its definately possible that me and Rinne both have Lyme but its not a "sure thing" by any means.

I did it the quick way....through a search. I could probably find alot more if I searched "spinach" or "spinaching". :lol:

It was hilarious. :lol:

The part that was time consuming was dealing with too amny emoticons and then having to "unquote" everything and color it green instead. The board wouldnt let me post that many quotes. :rolleyes:

I was thinking that since it was so much fun to put that together and because the "OMG" thread is almost 1 year old....if you guys want I'll get together some more clips. We can have more walks down memory lane to celebrate the anniversary of this thread and our friendships. :D

You guys can pick other words of signficance if you like....or I'll just pull up random stuff and see what happens. :lol:

No, not a sure thing. Even with a positive test, it's still a clinical diagnosis based on symptoms with the test as support.

Fun!!! Random would be fun too! It'll be like a surprise. We'll just log on one day and see a random "clip" of the Rachelville history. :lol:

I could use that after the last few days. :( I'm a bit down today. But also a bit happy. :huh: How can that be? Split personality perhaps?! :lol:

I think I am just rummy from lack of sleep. I haven't been sleeping well again for about two weeks, and then last night some yahoo keeps calling at 2:00 in the morning!!! I finally answered cuz I thought it must be something important for someone to keep calling. It wasn't. :angry:

But also my car was more than double what I thought it would cost because while they were working on it they found a leak in the exhaust. :( Stupid car repairs, I'm going back to Toyota, lol. I asked if I could run the car with it, and they said, well, you might get some fumes if you use the "fresh air" feature. Okay, fix it. :lol:

Then today I get a bill from Dr. Adams...I owe $300 MORE that my insurance wouldn't pay. I hope that's it, cuz the amount they expect from the insurance co. is $1700, and if the insurance won't pay then I have to!!! Yikes.

My neck really hurts...did I tell you that early Friday morning (around 2:00) I woke up on my back and my neck hurt so bad I couldn't move...I had to use my hands to turn my head so I could sleep on my side (which I usually do). Once I was on my side the pain subsided.

I finally got my bonus and back pay for the raise that was supposed to be effective January 1...it's all gone cuz of car repairs and bills. :(

BUT, it's an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day here, so I grabbed my Nano and went for a long really brisk walk, which felt really good and hence why I'm happy I think. :lol: And yesterday I bought some nail polish from Whole Foods and have nice fuschia pink toe nails...how can I be down with beautiful sunshine and bright pink toenails. :lol:

Donna, glad you're happy despite the financial concerns. :)

Yesterday Adam was telling me that his family was having a reunion this summer. We haven't seen his extended family since the last one years ago. He told me it'd be in NY.

I said I hoped it was in a place covered in cement in NY ... he laughed and said it was at a State Park, but he guesses we won't be going! LOL NO WAY am I going to a State Park in an endemic region for Lyme! :blink: Maybe there will be a resort close by so we can stay there and just go to the inside reunion functions.

I'm with you on the financial woe sadness. :( I hope your insurance comes through with the funds for the rest of the bill.

Glad you got out for some sun. I need to head out with the little guy before his nap. :)
