Dumb Family, Doctor Gone...

*sighs grumpy sighs*.

Some of my family just never learns, and never cares!

I went over to my auntie and uncle's place today, and me and my Baba made some gluten-free pyrogies, so I was there all afternoon.

As soon as I got there I showed Auntie my marks from college, and she said they were good, but jumped straight to giving me a huge lecture about how I should be working. She pretty much said that my stomach is do excuse, and scoffed at me because I said I'm trying to run around with doctors. She doesnt even believe that I have anything wrong with me, that I dont need to be talking to specialists or nothing, I should be getting a summer job instead.

And then before we started the pyrogies I was wiping the cupboard, and seriously, 3 times today she actually MADE FUN OF ME because mom told her the one time I got sick from some bread comes coming in contact with me food. Not just joke about it, MADE FUN OF. She said "oh dont worry, these are just mushrooms, they are breadcrumbs, they wont kill you" in such a sarcastic voice.

GAH!!!

OH and I found out today that my family doctor has left town for good...I'm completely screwed now. I'm not kidding you. Since he was the one who referred me to the specialist, he was the only one who could send more letters (I tried to get other docs to do it before). I had gone in there before asking about the letters and none of the other docs knew anything about it...When I talked to that government Representative, she wrote down he was my doctor (because she need to discuss with who referred me)...now I dont know WHAT I WILL DO!

I'm sorry. Please ignore your annoying family members. They sound ignorant, and just because they are family does NOT mean that they are right. (You know that, of course!)

As for doctors, maybe you'll get lucky, though you might need to drive a bit farther. :-( I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Sorry to hear about your doc leaving, its hard to find one that really understands. And for your Auntie, she should feel awful about her actions. You should have said to her " Dear auntie, do you truly love me? If so then I do have an illness that makes me very sick. I know you may not understand it fully but please try to understand that I do know what will happen if I get glutened.You wouldn't want to be the one who causes me pain now would you!!" Maybe a guilt trip might soften her thought process a bit.

Now to the best part of your story!!!!!!! Can you please please send me your recipe for pierogi's. My family is wanting them sooooo bad.....And we will love you forever.............

If you are willing to share the recipe please pm to me.

I'm sorry you had this happen. I was worried my family would do that too, but so far they have been accomodating.... give it a few months and I may be in your shoes.

Now, what I want to know is about a gluten free pierogies recipe! My daughter is Russian, and I have a box of gluten filled ones in my freezer. I'd love to be able to make them where I could eat them, or even make pelmeni with it. Can you pass it on?

Honestly, if I had a recipe for the pyrogies, I'd give you them. Someone here in Saskatchewan (the company is called KayBee) makes a pre-mix for them, so I just buy those premixes and add eggs/oil/water to make a cup of liquid to each packag,e and then make them like you would normal pyrogies..

Wish I could help you more with that!

So that Client Representative called me this morning.

She talked to the receptionist of the GIs office, and they HAVE looked at my files there.

She said the problem is, my referral letters are not specific enough to give the GI reason to see me sooner.

I told her that the blood didnt start until after the last letter was already sent.

I explained that my family doctor who referred me in the first place is gone for good...

Her suggestion is have the ultrasound (next week), and when the results come back go and see my other family doctor, get HIM to send another letter to the GI or actually phone the GI to discuss my results and explain how I am getting worse and include the fact about blood.

She said I could always call her again if I have anymore questions...

Theres my update!

Oh Lisa, I am sorry you are still having such a hard time with this and getting the run around from Dr.s, hopefully you can persuade whoever needs to be persuaded to get you the care that you need. I'm so sorry about your auntie's insensitive comments, believe me, I get them from my family all the time. EVEN THOUGH they can see the obvious improvements in my health off of gluten. I have aunts and uncles and even my mom, sister, cousins, and nieces and nephews that I am convinced all have problems with gluten, but they don't take me seriously. My sister tries really hard to make gluten-free things for me and my daughter, but inevitably she conveniently forgets to check one critical ingredient and thinks it won't matter. (It usually does matter)... oh well. All I can offer you is cyber {{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}} and hope that this gets better for you.

Hi Lisa

Hopefully things will start to turn a corner for you soon, I will pray for that.....

Now back to the pierogi mix!!!!! You are saying you buy a gluten-free premix?????? WOW................Could you get the name off the mix or where you buy from? I will e-mail them to see if I can purchase by mailorder then. These two kids are driving me crazy for pierogi's so I will do anything to get them! Well maybe just about anything................

Maybe you should start selling pierogi's on the side!!!!!!I never new the kids would miss these things so much.....

thanks Lisa

Thanks Lisa & gabby & Patti for helping me !!!!!!

To Lisa:

I heard back from KayBee and they do ship to the USA so I,m almost ready to order. Do you use any other mixes from them and how are they? I don't know if the other stuff is good or not so your input would be appreciated. It's ten bucks to ship so I might as well get other stuff to if it is good....

thanks all

Perogies

Here you go, Rachel.

Lisa, I am awfully sorry for your troubles with your family and doctors. But it looks like at least your doctor trouble can be solved now, and that is good. Fortunately, my family is not too bad, and especially extended families, like aunts and cousins etc. are really good about my celiac disease. But I know it must hurt, when your aunt is so insensitive.

Pierogi's can be of polish, russian,ukranian origins plus there are probably others too. They are a dough that has a potato,cheese, onion, or sauerkraut filling in them , the dough is a circle shape and once filled it is folded over to make a half moon shape and the ends sealed.they can be boiled or fried and I serve mine with grilled onions and sour cream.some people also filled them with a prune mixture. thay can often be found at ethnic festivals doing the summer months.

hope you get to taste some one day......

Those sound really "yummy".

I hope I get well enough to try them someday.

Thanks for the explanation. :)
