    I am interested in living a good life, not just existing. I want to explore who I am first and then explore everything else! I am an artist, Instructor and mother of two children. I am busy and at times appear to have ADHD....but that is just my life. I don't want to be restricted in life and refuse to be categorized. I am most interested in being crazy and laughing throughout life. It's a cool goal!

  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Canadians?

    I am a Canadian currently in Thunder Bay - the Land of the Sleeping Giant. I was diagnosed approx. 2 months ago from a suggested colonoscopy by my oncologist. Since then I have been experimenting and have come up with some neat alternatives to my old recipes. In order for me to cope I had to gain control over the disease and not the other way around. Sometimes it is a struggle with whose controlling who....but I think I am winning so far.....I have only been at it 2 months but it feels good.
  3. Well, I can trace it back to this past Tuesday.....had gravy with my fries. I don't know what I was thinking....it seemed so natural....didn't cross my mind that it was made out of flour. When I realized it...that I was having gravy.... I said in my mind "What the heck...might as well enjoy this". The sorrow of it all was the three days in the washroom three days later. hahaha I can laugh over it now but I was crying then. I drank peppermint tea yesterday, added honey in my tea, ate apples, and rice crackers. Blah. But I am much better now. Up until this episode I really started to question if it was all a fabrication made up by the doctors - maybe they got my colonoscopy results mixed up with someone else's. Guess not!
  4. Hi. I have been diagnosed with celiac sprue about 2 months ago. Since then I have had a fun time finding food that I can eat. I thought I was doing fine until today....I have had the runs for 3 days. I am not sure is it is the flu or the disease. I suspect it is the disease but don't want to believe it. My stomach makes an awful gurgling sound when it does not like what i have put in it. It's nice to know that there are other people I can bounce this off of. Do you think it's the flu?
