Ugh, my stomach has decided that sweet potato is no longer good on my stomach tonight. I got halfway through it and yep.... To my defense it was a little grainy....

You are really stressing about finals and maybe even going home. So...it might have nothing to do with the food, Hon. You will be fine.

grass...greener

I love Sonoma in the winter....too many allergens in the air for me in the Summer -- my daughter lives in Santa Rosa :)

Hubs grew up there (high school) so had already been treated for local allergens. We lived there for 20 years and he didn't have much of a problem. Move down here and it was just a sneezing chorus, and because of undiagnosed celiac - sinus infections. Densensitized again, especially for cocksfoot grass, which was originally (early settlement days) a seed crop in our area :blink::rolleyes: Durned ssttuphph is everywhere !

I think you need some phun and company in your life so you can think about something else and phorget about papers and finals (and yer stomach). Life is for living :) It's been a tough semester for you, honeybun. Now go out and have some outrageous phun !!! over Christmas B)

Technically i'ma.... 4th year.... I think part of this is stress relating to that (which generally wouldn't bother me), loosing one of my favorite professors, being sick, not sleeping, etc.

I have not been getting enough sleep and its been throwing off my routine. So hopefully with this break, i'll be back to normal :)

Thanks guys.

Great advice, Chaser! I teach, as well -- adults. They stress themselves out, I am sure, more than kids do.....I'm constantly telling them simply to do their best. You'l be just fine, Wolfie! ;)

Back from root canal. Keep in mind, I am a black belt in karate - undefeated in competitive fighting. I have had a freaking metal stake jammed in my side, and have hit an oak tree at 50+ miles per hour.

NONE OF THAT COMES CLOSE! Worst freaking pain ever! I literally jumped out of the chair a few times. :

BUT it is behind me now... I can recover now right? Just need to get a crown... dunno what that involves, but cant be worse... right?

Please tell me you had them give ya extra numb shots. I've been known to wear out between them. Did it before on a cavity fix. No fun. Got praised as a tough one though.

Oh they tried their best, tried three or four different kinds of numbing agents/tricks - just I am highly resistant to the stuff.

Easy-peasy, little round thing they slip on your noggin. You may have to kneel down tho. Did ptaumn abdicate or sumfin? :)

Ifn it was a dental crown, they just take a mold and make it in the lab with all the other cyborg parts. Glue it on and shine a bright light in your mouth to set the glue and fry your tonsils. The glue tastes really good too! Try not to swallow it all before they zap it with the light.

If the anti-know stuff don't wurk you can always apply your own anti-aesthetic at home before going to the butcher, I mean dentist. Best to have someone else drive tho.

They put your tooth on your behind? Is that the part that hurts the worse - like you're sitting on a hard pea every time?

The hard part is over. The crowning is painless. Been there more than once. A crown sculptured to match the drilled tooth is made and attached to the tooth using a strong adhesive. No drilling. No pain. :)

I'm here, after being distracted for a while. It has been a busy and stressful couple of weeks. Some of you know from Facebook, and my moderator colleagues know as well.

My father-in-law was taken to hospital December 4 because he was suddenly vomiting blood. His health had been in a slow, steady decline for a while. On Saturday evening, he passed away peacefully in his sleep. We got a phone call just before midnight.

The funeral was this afternoon. The weather was cool, but the sun shone brightly. The service was held in a small church built in the nineteenth century. Bob planned the service himself a few years ago. In his instructions, he said: "Lots of music, nothing sad. I have done very well. I could have been buried in Holland, 1945 along with 3,000 other Canadians."

In attendance were Bob's widow, son and three daughters, two grandsons and four granddaughters, two great granddaughters, two sons-in-law and his daughter-in-law. Many other family and friends joined us.

May God continue to bless you, Bob.

My condolences to you, Peter.

Shadowicewolf, how are you doing now with the end of the semester?

(I have a truckload of essays to grade, and I am thinking of giving a bunch of default A+ as a sign of protest. Except that maybe then I would be fired.)

Thanks! The first two were good, one was actually awesome. I will miss this seminar - I had a wonderful group. Have been receiving grateful and heartfelt emails for the past couple of days, which is pretty moving. Yeah, I am a softie.

Personally, I think there should be no grades.

Sorry to hear about your loss. I am glad Bob's funeral went well, it makes such a difference when you know they would have been happy with it.

Take it easy x


- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol

- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.

- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.

- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)

- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.
