Are you seriously that sensitive? You didn't hurt my feelings, takes much more than that. Sorry to disappoint you.

You didn't hurt my feelings. I don't believe I hurt your feelings. Just have a care when you post that things don't get taken the wrong way. :D:D:D

I'm only disappointed your informative posts will get taken the wrong way and people will choose the ignore user option.

(I promise, every vegetarian roommate I have had has shown signs of mental illness)

Sounds like a small sample size.

Tapioca intolerant

First cousin dx'd with Celiac Disease

Grandmother died of malnutrition b/c everything made her sick... sounds like celiac to me.

Gluten-free since June 2005

Dx with IBS February 2005

Blood tests both negative (or inconclusive?) for celiac (in 2002 and 2004)

N=2, and if you count the ones I haven't lived with there's much, much more experience. I'm stuck in uber yuppieville and everyone thinks veggie is "trendy" here.

Well I hope the OP has been able to get some good info from all of this. The only thing I would add is that if you havn't already had kids, you may want to wait. For one thing, you may not be able to BF with implants. Also, pregnancy, hormones, all that can change a persons body a lot and some people are bigger after having babies....even if they BF. Wasn't the case for me :rolleyes: , but it was indeed for a friend of mine. I have thought about getting it done myself. However, for me, this whole Celiac thing has turned out to be a bit more complicated than I would have liked. I am still dealing with issues and finding CC hard to deal with. I am so thankful for the level of health and wellness that I DO have, that it keeps me from focusing too much on the more superficial stuff. Still, I totally understand why a woman in our culture would want implants. They really are very tempting.

The other thing I would like to address is Ursula. I have done a lot of research on this subject in the past. I have read PRO studies and CON studies. I have frequented Mercola's sight myself. I havn't always agreed with everything there, but over-all it is a decent sight. THe facts are......breast augmentation is NOT a risk-free surgery. Plain and simple. The OP wanted feedback. Ursula was kind enough to go out of her way and provide a lot of food for thought. The word's against her were extremely confrontational and frankly if someone spoke to me that way, I doubt I would have as much class as she did.

As for the comment about hippies or hippie wannabees....whatever it was. COME ON!! Give me a break! I too, have a real low tolerance for "BS" and I just got a load of it reading through these posts! :angry:

I had silicone breast implants put in on Feb 27, 2006.  I developed Celiac Disease soon after and then developed Sjogrens Syndrome soon after that.  I decided to have them removed yesterday and it's a good thing I did as the surgeon discovered that one of the implants had ruptured, which I suspected about 3 years ago but didn't have them removed.  I'm at home recovering as I speak, but looking back I wish I never would have had them put in in the first place.  I'm still bandaged up, but know that I'll be back to my normal self soon.  I'm anxious to find out if I feel better (celiac) in the next month.  After implants I had no feeling in my breasts, couldn't lift weights like I used to before they were put in, and they were very lopsided.  I would be happy to talk to anyone to talk them out of it.  I was a 32 AA and after implants a 32 DD.  I'll keep you posted on my new look...I can't wait to see the results!
