Sigh...I suppose... :rolleyes:

I'll work on getting a white egg-laying chicken. I picked my girls for their egg colors.

Wow. I just read about this, too. This is absolutely horrific.

Much discussion on fb. I hope that people are angry enough to start some political actions.

Staying off the subject so as not to get to intense on this thread.

What if said "adult" student has been in school since, oh, PRE-K with out any really break and is working on a 5th degree? NOT that I am thinking of anyone in particular, its really just a random example ;) ;)

Totally legit, says the lady who has been in school since elementary (too sick for pre-K) and is working on god-help-me-I'm-confused-what-degree-number-is-this, and secretly (or not so secretly) plans to get a couple of degrees in psychoanalysis...

My family called me from Italy to make sure my CT friends were ok. That's crazy. Poor families. I can't imagine that - feeling safe that your kid's in school, and then...


Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Grave's disease (2011). It must have been a Black Friday.

Intestinal dysbiosis. Suspected damage to my vili (2012). NCGS according to my dermatologist upon seeing my post-wheat rash.

Gluten-free. Sept 2012.

Canola, almonds, soy = evil.

Grain-free, legume-free. December 2012.

No peanuts and tree nuts. February 2013.

Erb-Duchenne palsy from birth trauma.

What will political action do? If a person wants something bad enough, they'll find a way to get it or alternative means.

I just don't understand how a person is not stopped when they come in with guns. Yes, you could get hurt, but in reality it is just one person.

(i'm not trying to start something or anything, just commenting)

I blame it on the mental health reform of the 70's (?). You used to be able to lock up your adult relatives with severe mental issues so they could get help. Now it is extremely hard to do that until they have done something really bad.

But anyway...this is suposed to be the place to take our minds off the troubles of the world (at least mostly).

Saw a list of things not to buy your wife for Christmas. Thought it might be fun topic. Could be not to buy your man or woman. Here's the first one:

Never give a woman any kind of household appliance or something that is going to make "housework" easier. For instance, a blender, a toaster, a new vacuum, one of those mops they advertise on tv that does everything but suck the life out of you, anything in a informercial. One allowed choice is a new washing machine with a turbo spin cycle. (Makes laundry day go by pretty fast when you can at least sit on it during spin-dry and end up smiling the rest of the day.)

This could be taken both ways but some would question a makeover voucher.

- 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.

Vydor - absolutely, says the lady who has been in school since K12 (too sickly a child for pre-k) and who's on degree number God-help-me-I-have-lost-counts!

My parents called six hours ago to make sure my CT friends were ok. I used to shoot, but I really think stricter regulations would be in order.

On a random note: my last loaf of gluten-free bread came out thyroid-shaped. How am I supposed to interpret this?

Shhhh... i'm working on two degrees at once :blink:

People who commit those crimes care not for regulations :( They'll find a way to do so regardless.

I'd say the bread was being artistic.

Are you ALLOWED to do that?!?!? Why did they tell me it wasn't possible?

They would... and they wourld't. If we look at hard data and compare #of firearms in the country, ratio per person, and deaths by firearm in the US and other Western countries (say, the UK), it is undeniable to see a correlation between how easy it is to get a firearm and how easy it is to be got by one. The occasion makes man a thief. And I am one who used to spend all her weekends in a shooting range with a rifle when I was an adolescent. One will still be an a**hole or a psychopath with a desire to harm, I do not deny that. But if it were hard for them to get a firearm, well, then it would be harder for them to have the means to carry out their harmful intentions.

This gab/chat fourm is described on the index page thus:

General Chat Unrelated to Celiac Disease - Discuss most things here EXCEPT Celiac Disease / Gluten-Free Diet. Keep it light and avoid controversial topics like global warming, gay marriage, gun control, euthanasia, speed limits on the Autobahn, prisoner torture, etc.

This discussion has strayed into one of the specifically prohibited topics, emphasized in the quote.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

psawyer - I think you are right, point taken. Though I confess it is very difficult to just sympathize, and not feel that expressions of sympathy will never be enough. At least it is for me.

On the topic of udesirable gifts: hideous sexy lingerie. Also, a one way train ticket to a far off place might be interesting. I am perverse, so I would like to give a cookbook to my host.

I've decided something....

Rice chex is far more superior to corn chex....

I mean its okay and doesn't bug me but.... i don't know how to explain it... Or perhaps its just a preference after only eating the rice variety for the past year and a half...
