Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Ooh! Ooh! I can get on topic, too!

I posted in another forum about bizarro pain I've been having. Does anyone else hurt a lot when someone scratches your back, gives you a massage, or you scratch your back? Or when you slide out of bed in the morning and your calves rub against the edge of the mattress? It's an intense soreness, like you just hit something really hard, only all of this is with avergage pressure. I've had it a few years, I never realized it wasn't normal :huh:

Since we're in the land of magical relevations, I figured this might be a more helpful place to ask advice :rolleyes:

Tika is autistic, so she's mostly interested in hunting for lizards and staring intently at people to get what she wants...

Um, off topic? I am so consistently off topic that I"m sure to be voted off the cult farm....

I can't help but be off topic today, lol. I had a dog named Teaka! We spelled it differently obviously. Neat name! :D

Haven't really had that kind of pain, but have had the kind where it feels like a really horrible sun burn when the skin is just lightly touched or even when clothing brushes against it...there's never any redness or rash or any other outward sign of anything amiss...the spots tend to differ from time to time.

I fell about a month ago and the bruising is gone, but my leg still hurts like it is bruised even with very light pressure...is that close to the pain you are feeling?

I had a massage on Saturday and thought I was going to die. Its a deep tissue massage and I always have her use heavy pressure and it's usually not a problem, but almost every spot she touched...even with lighter pressure on my feet hurt like crazy.

Rachel-

thanks for the support- perhaps we should be the cheerleaders on our island either that or we could hire Mr Clark to stop by once a weekend to come give us all motivational talks!!

Miamia

Andrea-

not that I dont support your role as mayor but I feel you would be very well suited in a motherly role.

I think you should be the motherly mayor - or something to that extent - we can fool with the official title.

Miamia

Miamia,

You can only be cheerleader if it doesn't take away from chef duties. :D You were one of our chefs weren't you...or is my memory failing me. :lol: Did you guys know that msg has been linked with autism? That's in Excitotoxins...from our discussion about 70-80 pages ago. :P

Motherly mayor....we can go with that. :P

Rachel- I don't know if you ever said what your OMG moment was yesterday, maybe I missed it?

I feel like I am missing other things, I apologize if I left anything out.

Yes, I must have missed it too, unless it was the follow-up on the C.Diff thing...Rachel? :D

That sounds pretty close. I can't tolerate anything more than a gentle backrub. Even a light massage on my shoulders HURTS LIKE HELL!! Not just during it, which could be tight muscles, but for a good 2-3 minutes after the touching ceases.

Interesting you should say scratching your back. My husband (trying to be nice) will come up behind me in the kitchen or something and rub my shoulders/scratch my back. These are things he loves, but I can't stand it--it hurts, and I just figured I'm just more sensitive. :blink:

Guess what? My son, daughter-in-law and my baby grandbaby Ana, are flying in tonight at midnight... can't wait to hold Ana again... they will be here for good now, they moved back home to sunny Florida!!

Celia--you must be over the moon!! Will they be living close by in Florida? I hope someday to have grandchildren--my sons don't seem to be in any sort of hurry, though :D

I just realized I made up a new word there - relevations. Kind of like revelations, only spelled wrong. Whoops :rolleyes:

I've been doing that a lot. Like, I'll intend to write "the dog chased the cat out of the house" and I'll end up writing "the dog chased the cat out of the credit card"

Man, this brainfog is so deep that no amount of red bull will save me now :rolleyes:

No, they're Malapropisms, and actually quite charming....sign of higher intelligence.... :lol:

Wow, fortunately for me it doesn't happen very often, but I can think of two other times recently where I was nearly in tears and in one case felt kind of nauseated. Did you notice it happening when you were gluten-free? I'm wondering if maybe it will get better once you're off the challenge.

Guess what? My son, daughter-in-law and my baby grandbaby Ana, are flying in tonight at midnight... can't wait to hold Ana again... they will be here for good now, they moved back home to sunny Florida!!

How exciting!!!!!

my gosh, your husband vacuuming.....how fantastic...be sure and post that on the why we don't need men thread...... :lol: Around here I don't look forward so much to the sound of the pitter-patter of little feet, but the sound of a man doing things for me (sawing limbs off trees, mowing the lawn, opening jars :lol: )

Celia and I must be doubly blessed. My hubby works hard all day and comes home and helps with whatever needs to be done. I just told him last night that I only eat 2 meals a day during the week but since he's home on the weekend I eat 3 because he takes such good care of me. :wub: He's always asking what I want for breakfast and if I don't know or don't feel like it, he figures something out. He also does laundry and vacuums on the weekends as well as doing the dishes that don't go in the dishwasher. And he let's me have most of the computer time so I can keep up with Rachelville. :P

Not to say the Celia and I are the only ones double blessed.....just no one else has written about it. :)

Ms Penguin, Just kind of goes with the territory! I managed to gluten myself (CC) right before we went away --a week and a half ago--and I'm still doing stupid things! Yesterday, I took a load of clothes out of the dryer, folded them and turned the drier back on--completely empty. A while later, I thought--what's that noise? It was the dryer running :ph34r:

When I am reacting to foods (not just wheat, but dairy and processed packaged foods/lots of grains does it for me too) and I amass a lot of swelling (rapid weight gain) I have this type of pain. It's like it hurts to be touched or to wear clothes, to even lay down because the weight of my body on myself hurts, if that makes sense?

It goes away for me when I lose the massive swelling and my body weight normalizes, it takes a while and it only goes down if I take out all the offending foods.

I just realized I made up a new word there - relevations. Kind of like revelations, only spelled wrong. Whoops :rolleyes:

I do that all the time, brain fog or nor brain fog. I think I am a dyslexic typer, always inverting letters.

I frankly prefer "relevations" to revelations. Here in the land of Rachelville, we make all the rules, and we have our own words and language, relevations must go at the top of the list :lol:

Celia,

That is so exciting! You will have so much fun with your grandbaby......will we still see you on here? :unsure: I know we will and I'm happy for you. :D

Chelsea,

It sounds like your gluten challenge could be the culprit. You still have a month left? I meant to comment on the weight watchers pages ago but forgot. :blink: I would think the weight wouldn't be too hard to lose once you are back off gluten. I don't know if you've been eating products with a lot of refined sugar, but going off of refined sugar and only eating the sugar that's no so refined will help with weight loss. You still need to watch all sugar intake, it's just the refined stuff that so bad as far as weight.

I don't think it's the gluten challenge, I've had this going on for years, and being gluten-free did nothing for it. It may have been worse, actually.

I'm thinking the weight won't be too hard to lose when I'm off gluten, especially if I start WW at the same time. Double whammy of eating retraining :)

I'm wondering about your OMG moment too Rachel. :)

Relevations, great word, what does it mean? I'm thinking: relev as in important and elevations as in higher places, so relevations is the sharing of an important journey to the uplifted and inspirational community of Rachelville. :) Anyone else?

Celia, how wonderful that you will be able to hold that grandchild more often. I am so happy for you.

Off all topics, even the off-topic ones -

I just got off the phone with our tech guy for our prospect managment software that's showing me how to use this labrynth of a system that's supposed to make my life easier. He's maybe 30, and works with all of the councils nationwide.

Should I be offended he called me kiddo? :huh::rolleyes::P

C'mon guys, I know I'm young, but sheesh!

Better than "hun" I guess....

Kiddo is usally meant in an endearing way, so probably not, but if it bugs you, ask him to call you ma'am instead :D

I'm alot older than you and get called "kiddo" all the time...I get called "hun" too. People call me all kinds of things...as long as they are endearing it doesnt bother me one bit.

Oh...one of my co-workers calls me B****....thats just what she calls me and she says it affectionately so it doesnt offend me in the least. :)
