Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

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.....

Okay,although I'm not a regular poster on this thread I'm a regular reader!

No need to send Mango round the world,I can cover the English fabric angle-oh and while I'm there (Rachelville) did I mention I'm a trained hairdresser? ;)

I just know some of you ladies are gonna want to look your best when you go to that mall to get them beautiful clothes-or maybe not.Maybe your just gonna let your locks grow wild and go natural? :o

Whatcha think?Is there a job for me?!!(It does sound awfully nice) :D:D

OK, I told you guys about how I just got my tooth crowned and two cavities filled on thursday.

Well heres an update.

I decided to pay cash becasue I couldnt wait any longer, because I had a root canal done 3 months ago and had a temp filling in there.

it was starting to taste bitter in my mouth and I was worried that the filling was leaching out chemicals.

Turns out it was.

So went to see the dentist on thursday to get the temp filling tooth finally crowned, they drilled the old filling out and put a new one in and crowned it with a temporary Acrylic crown cap. I also let him fill two very decayed teeth in the back on the same side.

they really needed it.

After the appt. I felt ok but kind of sick in the stomach. starting shortly after that I was experienceing a bitter crappy taste in my mouth, espically when I eat. Sun, last night I thought I had a little zit in the corner of my mouth and was trying to pop it, and I never get those. It didnt pop, and it felt like it was real close to my lip on the corner.

I woke up this morning with a huge painful cold sore on my lip and awful bitter taste in my mouth, so I called the dentist, and he said to come in right away to see if the tooth was abcessing.

He looked and said that I have a cold sore, or herpes type one on my mouth, that was prob caused by the trama to the teeth and I said, that I have a bitter taste, he said that the temporary crown was made of Acrylic and metal based, and that could cause a immune reaction if I am sensitive to it.

He told me to get abbriva, and also wrote a script for some ointment, zivocor, or somthing.

I am allergic to acrilyic, im pretty sure so having it in my mouth sucks! Its so bitter and nasty.

The new crown in being made of porcline and ceramic, and not metal based. no acrylic. thank god.

I have to wait two weeks to get it in tho.

the acrylic momers are leaching out a little bit into my mouth and making me sick.....

I hope this doesnt make me wore, the cold sore is a bad sign, and so is the awful taste right on my tongue where it touches the crown.

my jaw hurts extra worse today,,,,

hopefully it gets better with the new tooth. its being made in a lab in California right now so I have to wait to get it in!

How is everybody else doing?

Celia, I saw that I would be the nurse in rachelville, thats cool, Where is it anyway.... :)

Im planning on moving to S. Cali after I finish nursing school in 2008, love it there. Im not really into where I live in ohio.Ive decided that once im done, There is really no reason to stay.

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

I need access to the food network as part of my job function :)

I also think we need more bathrooms than bedrooms, all with VERY POWERFUL FANS that are loud and industrial air fresheners.

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:

You've been living in organic-vegan land, right? Red Bull is an energy drink that is terrible for you but wakes you up and I justify drinking it because it has tons of b-vitamins and I need to function.

And reading over the butyoudon'tlooksick website, I was reminded that my doctor said the last time she saw me, "Are your cheeks always that red?" um...yeah? :unsure: She just kind of made a "hmm" noise and went about her business. I always thought I was always so pink because I'm so pale...maybe not? :huh:

Spoon theory??? Please explain. :blink:

Cissie

I'm having brain fog, so won't do the theory justice, but in ChelsE's post above, the word spoon is underlined...that's actually a link, so if you click on it it will take you to the spoons theory page.

:lol::lol::lol:

well maybe NOT, since we are growing our own organic perfect foods and livestock with vigilant geese and dingos on guard, and then our own team of highly-skilled chefs to prepare everything......

Oh yah. Had one on my way home from my biopsy last week...it had been in the car while my procedure was taking place so it was like a warm brownie! (can you guess chocolate is my fav)

Can we have unlimited dairy free chocolate on our cult farm?

Susan, I think you're on the Decor and Design Committee. I was just asking to join. I'll discuss my husband later, as I'm in the middle of fixing dinner now.

Nikki, welcome to Rachelville! I have to give up my Aveda hair products, but I'm sure you can come up with a substitute. MUST have the hair done once a week! :D

Thanks to all for the heads up on the spoons. I'll check it out.

Cissie

To save our thread: I haven't had the big D in weeks, but have had a few floating stools. :(

We're all in it together! we will all combine out talents and there will be no gluten contaminating our brains so all will be peaceful, everyone will be in a good mood all the time! (sounding more like Stepford now than Rachelville but we must ensure that it doesn't devolve into Lord of the Flies)

Hey, what does floating stool mean? Can't remember.....sometimes mine float and are grayish, I think that occurs after accidental glutening....

Yep, I'm starting to get the pain in my abdomen...I'm wondering if I didn't get glutened somehow. I did eat out on Saturday, and I had some of the new Lundberg Brown Rice Pasta I found at Whole Foods. I'm thinking it was the eating out thing even though I eat there every Saturday...maybe someone messed up.

I was going to say, can you imagine having bathroom duty in this community of celiacs. :lol:

I will be conveniently absent when that job is given out.

yeah, our community seems to change in tone from time to time, a mixture of The Waltons, Stepford, Pleasantville, Little House on the Prairie, Lost, the town in "Edward Scissorhands".....

Question

Mitch and I are soy intolerant (plus I suspect baby) and Talitha and Micah scored 9 with enterolab with 10 being an intolerance. We have gone soy free but my question is this....

If you were intolerant to soy would you use something with soy in it for topical reasons. I have a jar of older noxema and a jar of newer noxema. The newer one lists soybean oil as an ingredient. I'm going to use the old one on my son (his back is sunburned) but was curious as to whether anyone thought soy oil would be a problem topically. The reason I question this is because of topical uses of gluten that can cause problems.

I would say yes for the smae reason that we say ti aobut gluten... you get it on your hands and then eat food.

I believe I'm allergic and intolerant to soy, but I can handle shampoo that has soy protein in it. It's strange I can use it topically because when I injest it my skin breaks out. Soy oil honestly isn't as problematic, but if you're worried maybe you could return it to the store?

Community Events Coordinator: Rinne

Celia, I would love the job, we'll need a committee of course, anyone? We will have to have a community hall for events, the decorating committee could take charge of that and the gardening committee could do the landscaping. I love to dance so you can expect lots of dances. :D

Back to the CT scan, the reason I refused to take the chemicals was that my mother reacted very badly to the injection and given that many of my symptoms are the same as hers I didn't want to risk it. I went looking for information about negative effects and didn't find much. There is something about the contrast being iodine and that it can in rare cases cause kidney damage and also some relationship to Grave's Disease but I couldn't understand it. I was really tired this morning from our trip yesterday, so much so that I slept all afternoon. :ph34r: I'm glad no-one here had any bad reaction to their scans.
