Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I think I will definitely call tomorrow

:lol: Sounds like a sure thing! :lol:

I thought it was in the cheek (not the ones on your face :lol: ) .

If you decided to give it there, be sure you have someone show you where. You don't want to hit the nerve. Basically, divide the cheek into four imaginary quadrants ... it goes in the upper quadrant on the outside of the body.

Thigh sounds easier.

Our man Tom is a hoot, we'd better keep him.

You two are both a hoot.

Tom, I think the additional question should be "Do you have a girlfriend?" You two seem to have a lot in common. :P

How old is he, late thirties ... same as you, Susan, right. ;););)

confession - - I have padded the OMG thread with nothing but goofiness. So sorry for the pages and pages you have all had to read......will compress. ;)

Don't! We like it this way!!!

Don't u dare!!

And I bet someone reversed something on the bone scan. ["What? We're supposed to get *all* of them perfect?"]

Um, just you watch, soon we will get busted and kicked into another 'hood. That is how R2 started.

maybe we can be silly on the Silly Yak thread? it's like a Seinfeld episode over there - we talk about NOTHING. :lol:

did you guys know how HEINOUSLY HEINOUS my doctor is (not my beloved GI)? that she looked at me during my "physical" (which lasted all of three minutes and I think she missed my wildly irregular heartbeat BECAUSE SHE DIDN"T LISTEN TO IT :angry: ) and said, What is gluten? What is it in? and she never even heard my answer...

so veyr well true indeed that misinterpretation is rampant there. No one cares.

:angry:

:o:lol: um, are you SURE about that?? :)

Absolutely positive!!! :D

forgot to tell you guys, had my bone density scan (per GI's request) two weeks ago....just got results. Shows medium risk in LEFT hip and upper thigh....that is so strange, bc my RIGHT hip and upper thigh are always killing me......maybe the girl at doctor's ofc. was reading wrong?

So what does the acticel (or whatever it was) do?

Do you think celiac caused any of this?

Don't you dare! :angry: We love you and all the pages you've padded on here. :wub:

:lol:;);) ;) yes indeed-y. ha ha ha ha

FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRST of all, Tom is GU (geographically undesireable, lives in PHoenix, WHICH IS HOTTER THAN FRESNO, for Pete's sake, but closer than my other boyfriend in GEORGIA)...........

Second, I will bet anything that he is married. :lol: The interesting ones always are.

:P:P:P

Um, BTW, it says on my page how old I am. am going to change that now. I was hit on by a 30-year-old two weeks ago at my pub, he thought I was 35, stayed for half an hour at our table, until I told him how old I actually was.......within 5 minutes he left.

LAST time I tell anyone my age. ;)

oops - I think I am re-telling stories.

:ph34r::lol:

and also, padding the pages with a whole lotta nuttin.

Do you think celiac caused any of this?

ABSOLUTELY! And I was quite blessed to have it diagnosed when I did, I was so malnourished that really horrible damage could have been done had I not been sent (by EEEJIT doctor) to a competent GI. My intestinal problems, after all, were not intolerable.....I didn't even care and just figured all of it was from nerves. :o

Where is Tom....he is going to be embarassed (CARLA!!!) when he comes back...... :lol:

He got diagnosed with Celiac in the early 60's......or was it just the 60's. I'm thinking around 40-45.

Reporting in doctor's appointment: I have my first meeting with my naturopath tomorrow afternoon. I can't wait because I'm so tired of feeling so awful all the time.

Hopefully, I'll be on the path to good health soon, and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for you all tomorrow night!

Thanks again for this thread; it's really like a gift for me at a time like this, as no one in my family or friends really "gets" it and what it's like to feel sick all the time, so I'm very thankful for all of you!

That was mostly due to the fact that those who needed help were being ignored while everyone else was busy having fun. As long as we keep the thread supportive of EVERYONE, we should be fine......am I right Rachel?

Oh sweet! I'm not ready for a game yet - was just shootin around a little.

Used to play in games 3-4x/wk b4 1st getting sick. Pretty often for a guy in late 30s. The whippersnappers seemed more energetic every year.

It's good to hear you can play again. Helps give me more hope. (But can ya "leap over a small forward for a single reBound"? Hehehhe)

I thought he gave a clue to his age ... I guess it all depends on when he got sick.

It is nearly impossible to embarass me.....

:lol::lol:

JULIE!!! we were wondering where you were. SO GOOD that you're seeing the naturopath!!

Um, hey, I"ll send you some seeds if you send me some delicious salmon. My mom and I went to Costco the other day, I unloaded everything from car except a huge slab of salmon and some chips, in the very back....didn't realize it until late that night. ALMOST cooked and ate the salmon.....who cares....but thought better of it and had to throw whole thing out. :(

dingo must sign off, 60 Minutes is on.

what a hoot! lots of fun today.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes for my mom, we had a very nice day.

Beverly, sorry the herxing is so heinous. :(

Susan, glad you weren't gone for long. :)

Donna - - my mojitos would not poison you. :) They have magical restorative qualities and are reputed to cure any condition. :lol: It's fun to sip with dingos, they're such lovely company. Just now and then, 'twould be nice to have someone raise a glass and stare lasciviously at me for something other than remnants of my food.

.....

I'll have one of those magical mojitos.

As to lasciviousness, I suggest you take that late thirty energy and exercise it :P before you find yourself fifty and preferring to shop. :lol::lol:

....

for once.....I am actually out of words......and just savoring the fact that it is no accident that we all find ourselves here together in this magical place.....we are all here, a family, for a reason, and the reasons just build and build.

....

Yes, yes, yes.

Rachel, so glad your appointment went well, great news about the treatment that you thought you would have to travel for being available right there.

Whew! I think I've been reading for an hour. That'll teach me not to go shopping.. :P ....we were only almost completely out of food.

:lol:

:ph34r:<_<

....

Thanks again for this thread; it's really like a gift for me at a time like this, as no one in my family or friends really "gets" it and what it's like to feel sick all the time, so I'm very thankful for all of you!

Julie, that is exactly how this thread was created, I'm so glad you found us. :)

and he is NOT answering girlfriend question, we know he has one, but it is NBA finals, so he doesn't have her today :lol: :lol: :lol:

ROTFLMAO

Jin, I love your use of language. I know I wanted to respond to something you said but I dingo'd it. :(

Leaving for a whole day is risky, I've been reading for nearly an hour. :lol:

I'm sorry about Alison leaving, I'm not sure what heinous thread it was. There were a couple that started to heat up :( but I didn't stick around.

I find I have very limited energy for conflict these days. I prefer to accept that others see things differently than I do.
