Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking we might be a couple posts short of being relocated down to the "Gab" category :lol:

Donna, was the book on inflammation you were looking at Dr Pericone's by chance?? Just curious.

:lol: Good one Mango, auxigro detecting geese!

Since you are an adventurous one, you like to go over the hill to the mall and to travel to distant lands, maybe you can bring us isolated folk news form other civilizations? You know, our hub to the outside world? Just a thought.

Good idea. I'll be the adventurer/researcher (or something like that). I'll travel to distant lands to bring back news and information...but I'm still only eating food that's grown in Rachelville :)

and I can be nice to everyone, like the Walmart greeter. I'll be the Rachelville greeter :lol:

Yes, yes, we'll need this after I finish putting the attack geese after unsuspecting glutenous folks who wander on to our cult farm!

I don't think so...I think I would have remembered Pericone...I think I did buy one of his books a couple of years ago, but don't remember if I finished reading it, lol. I'll have to see if I can find it online. Course, guess it would help if I could remember either the name of the book or the author. :lol:

If I can leave the dogs in charge of the geese for a few hours, I want to help with decorating the powder rooms in our little houses. I'm a faux finish and decorative finish artist, and I have quite a collection of paint, but I know my limitations. Powder rooms are just my size! I'm also pretty good at small repairs around the house, so I'm happy to know there'll be a Lowes and a Home Depot at the other-side-of-the-mountain mall. We'll need a good fabric store too, to add to my collection. I'm insane when around fabric! :rolleyes: I can't resist buying everything I fall in love with, much to my husband's chagrin. :angry: I can't help myself; it's a sickness. :P I'm leaving dear hubby in Georgia, by the way. Rachelville doesn't need an overly cautious, unimaginative pessimist, and besides, he'll be perfectly content hanging around here.

About our lake - What if we dam up our mountain stream to make a lake? I think we could do it so that the stream would keep flowing out the other side of the lake. Is there an engineer in our town?

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

This whole thing is just cracking me up more and more.....Cissie of COURSE your husband can come, we'll reform him....and yes, the dogs will be more than happy to watch the geese while you (can I help?) faux finish and paint the POWER ROOMS (such a civilized term, I love it)

FABRIC....I am going mad with fabric on ebay....just ordered an antique Uzbek ikat in raspberry and cream linen/silk - - am going to make (have made - you don't want me sewing) two pillows for couch w/ fringe....a great deal, you must check out ebay for fabric! If not we can send Mango to other countries for our exotic textiles - - she can get Maori prints from Australia, but we need someone from Africa to send us Kuba cloth, and England to send us fantastic linens and cottons - - - there will be no pedestrian fabrics in Rachelville.....

Julie, you are going to be the Ambassador of Adorableness and Good Cheer!!! :rolleyes:

Vincent, yes, exactly what Andrea said, you will be breaking adn digging up the ground...

Andrea, yes, I vote for Oregon!

Rachel - - - you are insane - - you will never see my shadow darken the doorway of a sauna - heck I am living in one now, why don't you come and stay in my very soothing guest bedroom and work in MY garden right now - - - 100-and-freaking-eight today, no planting allowed right now, just nursing my babies in thier pots until the right time....can't wait.....

Celia, bet your headache's getting better just from laughing at our goofiness.... :rolleyes:

I'm off to Home Depot for more paint.....

Morning everyone,

I'll be reading but not sure I will be adding... my head hurts so bad today... and no I didn't drink wine :lol: It started yesturday afternoon.... I hope I don't end up puking.... I haven't had a migrane since going gluten free... don't know what caused it.... I have Rx for this but it only helps if I catch it before it starts to hurt, when I first start noticing my tunnel vision.... I've had to go to the ER before to get help... didn't want to bum out Rachelville.... miamia you can definitely be our cook!! Love to all B)

Celia, did you have something to eat that had MSG in it? That crap always gives me a migraine! But, thanks to Rachel, I know how to check labels for hidden MSG. No preventive meds have ever worked for me, because I don't have any warning signs like the zigzag, pulsating rainbow or the blind spot. Funny thing is, I've had those signs WITHOUT getting a migraine.

I haven't had to go to the hospital in years, because I found something that works!!! It's a suppository called Cafergot. It works well for me, because I would vomit up anything taken by mouth. I also have Phenergan suppositories for the nausea, but you're supposed to use one about an hour before the cafergot, and I can't wait that long. As it is, the relief from the cafergot takes an hour! :(:(:(

Cafergot is very, very strong, so I cut off only a small piece of the suppository to take, and it works great!

I hope you feel better soon! :)

Celia,

You have to add somewhere in there about the protective guard geese that have the ability to detect auxigro and the Dingo dogs, (Annie and Tinka, I think? Susan can confirm).

Edit- Ooops, I see that's already in there, my bad!

No problem Julie, great minds think alike on this thread.

I sure hope Scott doesn't bump us....but I guess it doesn't matter as long as the thread isn't killed. Of course we have newscaster Celia so we can just start another thread about Rachelville and including our progress and setbacks with getting healthy again.

:lol: Andrea, that's why I was trying to throw something in here and there health related.

Ummm, I just don't have anything to go with here, my mind is blank. Rachelville has taken over.

Okay, to get this thread back on topic...I have D today, lol. :lol:

I haven't even had a Bumble Bar in over a week! (Maybe the intervention worked after all--I have 4 or 5 in the cupboard!) :ph34r:

We will definitely need modern facilities in our farm! :lol::lol:

I'll try for on topic...

Um...I can add that my body really didn't appreciate spending two days at Six Flags eating Six Flags foods (Remember, I'm on a challenge, only a monthish to go!).

My hips are killing me and my innards are rebelling. I'm living on Red Bull.

I definitely used up all of my spoons for the weekend and then some :rolleyes:

Wow, I love that spoon theory! I'm sending that to my friend who has fibromyalgia really bad...I think she starts the day with less spoons than I've ever had on my worst days. I know people don't understand and that is a great way to visualize it.

The spoon theory was linked a while back in another thread, but I don't remember which one. In the store for that site they have a whole section of "Celiac Disease sucks!" products. I want the apron :)

I printed the theory out for him and he seemed not to get it, but after a couple of days it's like a lightbulb turned on. He's always seen me run out of spoons, now he has a visual. Now we talk about spoons all the time :P

Did you have problems with bumble bars themselves or just wanting to eat too many....I forget. :unsure:

We just got into Lara bars...need to add some more fiber...especially when my daughter is off rice for a week. She seems to be doing ok. I also wonder how corn is with her since she still has a few tummy troubles. Would a glutening last this long...it's been almost 1 1/2 weeks. :(

Donna, do you tolerate nuts? I can't remember who all could or not. What is it about nuts? I would really like to eat them.

So you have been sober (Bumble Bar sober) going on 8 days now. One day at a time Donna, one day at a time :lol:

Thanks Cissie, I'll ask the doctor about it... I have my appt. at 10 tomorrow, my 3 month check up... I'm suppose to be writing my thoughts down on what to ask her but right now just interested in Rachelville :o:ph34r::lol:

:ph34r: don't tell her too much about Rachelville - she'll think you've gone mad..... :blink:

Julie - yes, cable, all the channels, yah! We can watch HGTV and food channel and then do all kinds of fun projects!

Chelsea - - loved the spoon thing - what a great site, had never seen it.

Donna - sorry about the D :( Would somebody kindly explain Bumble Bars to me?

Wonder what Scott thinks about our crazy rambling fantasty-land thread we've got going here....

Celia - how ya feeling?

:)

As far as I know just wanting to each too much. I did get a mouth blister after eating one, but it seemed like a one time deal. I love the fiber in the Lara bars! I haven't noticed any kind of problems with them for me. I don't have a problem with wanting to eat too many either. :lol:

I seem to tolerate nuts (well mostly nut butters) well too...I practically live on nut butters. I don't eat a lot of the whole nuts though. One of my doctors (the one who wouldn't touch me when I was extremely dizzy and had extremely low blood pressure, so don't know why I'm listening to her now, lol) once told me the whole nuts are hard to digest, great for fiber, not great for those of us with intestinal problems.

The spoons theory certainly put things in perspective doesn't it.

I'm sure I must be one of the few that doesn't know what Red Bull is. :ph34r:

It's okay...sh** happens, lol. :lol: Sorry, I usually don't swear, but I couldn't resist! :D

Bumble Bars are a type of energy bar. They have flax seeds, and other stuff which I can't remember now...hum, wonder if I have brain fog too. My favorite is the chocolate to which I add some kind of nut butter. Yummy. I am truly addicted to them. Truly.

Here is a link to the Bumble Bars:
