December 2008, while seeing improvement on the gluten free diet, I did not recover and so in December of 2008 began the SCD and now have hope for recovery.

Happy Birthday Julie!!!

Here's to a year filled with more health and well being.

100 pages!!! OMG :o

Someone posted on another thread that they never viewed this topic cuz they thought it was just about me possibly being able to eat dairy. :blink:

:lol::lol: I laughed when I read that....I guess there was a time I thought maybe I could have dairy....when was that? Oh yeah....probably on page 1. :lol:

Happy Brithday Julie!!!!!

Have a beautiful day!!! :)

I posted about this thread on Lynne's thread and someone (I forget who, maybe ChelsE) posted that this was like a bunch of girlfriends at a slumber party. :D I thought it was a good analogy.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Good luck with your appt, Rachel! Ask lots of questions ;)

This thread thing reminds me of when my sister and I talk for 3 hours on the phone. (we live in different states, and don't talk every week). My husband, or hers, will say--so, what did you two talk about? Well, only about 17,000 things, and I can't name one!! :lol:

Patti - - do you not have an unlimited long distance plan? My whole phone bill is $55 a month, covers DSL, all phone services, and unlimited long distance (in the US) - - - can't live without it as friends are scattered everywhere....just think, you could call your sister all the time! :rolleyes:

Rachel - - - hope it's a fruitful appointment!

Susan--I do actually :) I have Verizon that includes unlimited calling and my DSL internet connection (lifeline) :D I think we just get busy, and we know that every time we get on the phone, it's 2-3 hours regardless of how long it's been! She has a full time job and 2 young-ish girls, so we just don't talk as much as we'd like. It is nice, though to not have to "watch the clock" when making phone calls any more!

Patti, too true and too funny.

I think this thread is fabulous. It just strikes me that this is exactly what women do when we get together, we talk about everything and we do that because everything is connected to us. This thread has helped me to understand the frustration I have had on another board that seems to be dominated by men. The discussions are specific to the one topic and then they end which lots of times is just right but sometimes you want something that is broader and deeper than just one topic. This thread contains the community of, seems like, women who show up and anyone is welcome to. It is a gracious space, I have felt so at home and so happy to be here even though I kind of crashed in somewhere around page 76.

It is just the best darn pajama party I have been to in ages. :D:D:D

See ya later, off to pick up my sweetie.

Susan....you have to tell me about this. I'm still using dial-up and let me tell you...it sucks!!! Everyone tells me DSL is expensive. I already pay about $45 for unlimited long disatnce but how do I get the DSL thrown in too? I was told DSL alone costs over $50 a month. :unsure:

I jump into this thread to post the most random things....

I have cable internet (which I think is better than DSL?) and I pay $24/month. You should look into it.

Thanks....I gotta do something cuz I'm spoiled on my Moms computer all week with DSL and then I go home to my computer and I feel like I'm in the stone age or something. :huh:

I get impatient and frusterated.

Jersey...I also dont like to pin much cuz it takes too long on that computer..sorry. :ph34r:

I know you're picking up my slack. ;)

Rachel - - just call SBC and ask what is the best deal they can give you. Tell them your friend gets everthing - caller ID, call waiting caller ID, and one more feature (I think I have call forwarding but don't use it), PLUS DSL, and unlimited long distance. It's soo-per! Also - ask them about their "bundle plans" they were advertising a while ago. Don't know if those still work, but, you should be able to negotiate a good deal wtih SBC, and talk them down - - - they seem to have negotiating powers as I just got my DSL down from 20 to 14 a month, because I knew someone else who had that price.

Please note, it's a two-year commitment, I think, and if you back out early it's something like a $200 fine, so just make sure you can commit to the time. You will LOVE DSL if you've still been using dial-up!

So it's become a pajama party, and I can join in??? :rolleyes: It's such a long thread, every now and then I check in and see that it has nothing to do wtih eating dairy...... :)

:lol::lol:

Yeah....and for the record I cant eat dairy. It was just some crazy idea I got that didnt last more than a few days at most. :rolleyes:

Too bad I cant go back and change the title...to something like "OMG...I may never figure all this out" "but lets all have a slumber party instead". :P
