  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. When you go grocery shopping, what always finds it's way into your basket? I have found that I am addicted to Uncle Bob's chocolate cake. It tastes just like regular cake, and even my kids help me eat it.
  3. Bob's Chocolate Cake Mix. My whole family loved it, and I couldn't tell a difference.
  4. As far as school goes, my husband's school tried to fail him when he'd missed too much due to his diabetes. I mentioned the ADA and they shut up pretty quickly.
  5. I want to make hash brown cassarole for tomorrow and it takes cream of chicken soup, which has flour in it. Does anyone know where I can find a safe alternative?
  6. The Trader Joe's here in Vancouver is tiny. I had a hard time just moving through the store, and I really didn't find a whole lot. The Wild Oats here is MUCH better, and bigger too.
  7. I Did A Dumb Thing

    I've been gluten free for a week, and I already know that feeling! I just HAD to try something, and that was all she wrote. If it helps any, I found a gluten free cake mix at Wild Oats (I can't remember the brand but am going back there for other things so I'll see what it is) that tastes just like regular chocolate cake. My kids couldn't even tell the difference.
  8. Anti-depression Meds

    I wish I could gain weight. Sigh. I usually weigh about 100 (I'm 5'5") but I'm at about 95 or so right now. I've never been able to gain, unless I was pregnant (or on bedrest after having an ectopic pregnancy). Oh and I wouldn't recommend Seroquel for just an anti depressant.
  9. Honestly it sounds like that nasty tummy bug that went around last year. I had it twice and had those exact symptoms. I never did throw up (thank goodness, as I have a SEVERE phobia of it) but I was sick for over a week. DH had it once too and was the same way. Hope you feel better.
  10. Anti-depression Meds

    See, I took Lamictal before trying Seroquel, and I was sicker than a dog. I was SO DIZZY I couldn't walk down the stairs without feeling like I was going to fall down. It was horrible. The only side effects I've had on the Seroquel is tiredness after beginning it and after increasing the dose (but that went away after about 3 days or so).
  11. Fuming...mil Doesn't 'get It'!

    I'd go buy her something with lactose in it and tell her that it's so good, it's worth getting sick over. I hate my MIL, but luckily they live across the country from us.
  12. I am bipolar, so I have a lot of bad days. I take it one hour at a time. Working is pretty much out of the question for me, as there are days when I can't talk myself up out of bed, but school was slightly better. And life really sucks if I'm having a bad depression day AND a diarrhea day. Then I just hole up in my house and be miserable.
