Hey Nikki:

Your Queen is coming to the Colonies. Jamestown is about two hours away, but I am enjoying the news coverage.

I also think that she is going to visit Virginia Tech, where they have had such tragedies. Looking forward to the visit.

Dear Alison,

Fruit 2-0 is gluten-free, but yeah, it does have Splenda. I know that those things can have neurotoxic effects. I use Sweet'n Low in my coffee everyday. I miss stuff with flavor. I cannot use the purified water from the fridge anymore. Our filter broke. :(

Dear Laura, Patti, and Andrea,

You are all so breathtaking in your wedding pics!

Dear Nantzie,

I cannot wait to see your pics!

Dear MommaGoose,

Hi!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

P.S. Today I developed a scratchy throat after eating Cocoa Pebbles with Soy milk. God, please do not tell me I am allergic to soy!

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.

Dear Patti,

I love to clean and organize too! I am good at it! I just wish my parents would keep things that I clean up neat! :angry: You spend two freakin' hours on a drawer for everyone to go screw it up again! It is like "That's it! If you want to keep your fingers, you will not touch anything unless I say so!"

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

P.S. Happy 1,000 + pages everyone! :) I SEE YOU RACHEL AND ANDREA!

OMG I am so in Rachelville, I am sitting here in eating peas reading about people eating peas. :lol:

I can't believe I posted on the 1000th page without even knowing it was. :blink:

It is truly amazing, thank you Rachel. :wub: Of course, you couldn't have done it without us. :P:lol::ph34r:

I didn't either.

Adam just emailed me that he's on his way home to take me to work out ... why do you think he thought I was on the computer????

:lol:

Hi Nancy! We'll look forward to seeing some photo's of you if you find any you want to put up. :)

I don't know either and I didn't have time to look at the link the day it was posted, and still haven't gotten around to it.

I got my dad's stuff dropped off last night. Old LP's are part of that so I need to see how much someone will pay for those. Mom said there are still people who collect LP's. Lots of stuff we would have no use for, but the photo's and annuals will be nice. :)

My dad's wife's son is a moving truck driver so he dropped the stuff off on his way through here.

Just thinking about you thinking about your dad. :wub:

WELL

Got to go eat more peas.

I got so involved in my epsom salt bath I totally forgot the danged peas! I guess it will have to be 1000 sunflower seeds then.

P.S. Today I developed a scratchy throat after eating Cocoa Pebbles with Soy milk. God, please do not tell me I am allergic to soy!

Oh I hope not, but I'm afraid it affects so many people!

Hey Everyone,

I don't know if you remember me, but for a little while I chatted with some of you and posted a bit on some of your boards :) I guess I was a resident of Rachelville for a while! I've just been thinking of you guys a lot lately and wondering how you've all been doing. I'd love to hear an update from each of you! Especially those doing bio energetics/accupressure allergy treatments. How's that going? Have you guys been able to introduce new foods? Has anyone discovered anything earth shattering? I really hope all is well with each and every one of you, lord knows you deserve it :)

I was starting to wonder about the peas......is it some new magic Celiac cure-all I haven't heard aobut yet? :o what is with everyone eating peas? and then concluded that I think it is is the need to eat a thousand of something as a celebration of this thread...... :lol:;) I think I eat nearly a thousand sunflower seeds every night, whilst watching silly dancing and singing competitions on TV..... :lol:

:lol: You said befuddling. :lol: You said befuddling and harrumph in the same sentence. :lol:

Hey Peace!!! I was just thinking yesterday that I haven't seen you around the boards much lately! How are YOU doing?

I'm still going to BioSET. We've been finding lots of infection and they've got me on all kinds of detox stuff.

I also had one ART (autonomic response test???--a form of muscle testing) session which I wanted to do so I could see which of mercury or candida was my biggest problem and they actually found that LYME was a problem, so I saw a doctor last week for the blood testing for Lyme. He is also checking for heavy metals, mold and candida I think. He's also checking for thyroid antibodies. That's about the most earth shattering I think, lol.

I haven't been able to introduce any new foods yet, we haven't gotten to foods yet...every week now I think this is the week but they find something else to test me on. :lol: We DID do the wheat panel a couple of weeks ago.

How about you, have you been able to eat anything new...you were so limited the last time you posted!

No, I think it's more like peas are one of the few foods that many of us can actually EAT 1000 of. :lol: I figure it should be easy to eat 1000 sunflower seeds tonight. ;)

Psst--you always entertain me. :P

Thanks! Those feet are my "grandma's". She wasn't really my grandmother, but she thought I was smarter than most of her grandchildren, so I took that and ran with it...she's my grandma, lol. :lol: Behind the giant panda I think is my mom, lol...not sure why she's back there though. :lol:

I KNOW!! holy cow indeed, I'm trying to think of a way to get enough money to fly Patti out here, to clean for me. :lol: oh, wait, guess it would be cheaper to just hire someone, eh? but not NEARLY as much fun as our dear Patti! :)

No peas or sunflower seeds for me. Can't chew the seeds because my back teeth don't touch yet! Peas? Not a favorite ... I only eat them when someone else makes them! But then again, I have a great salad recipe that's a pea salad with red onions. Yum.

Great wedding pictures! I'll have to dig one up ... mine was in 1984 ... I wore a BIG hat! :o:lol: And LOTS of eye makeup! :lol:

Peacenlove girl, I'm going through treatment for Lyme. I don't have any other food sensitivities than gluten, never did, but I've been really sick with the Lyme. I'm finally making some progress here. The fatigue is lifting some, but the other symptoms are still bothering me ... the fatigue was the most disabling though ... today is joint pain and muscle aches, minor fatigue ... would be major fatigue if I was healthy though, it's all a matter of perspective!

Susan, always fun to have you around!
