  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Yeah... I'm also missing something. If someone wouldn't mind PMing me, I'd like to know what went down. (Huh, I suppose I haven't posted in a while. But I'm still here! I always read along. ) Sara
  3. Woohoo! Go to the supermarket for those eggs with gusto! I'm so glad your surgery went well, and your tumor was benign.
  4. Wooohooo!!!! That's awesome!! :D
  5. I couldn't resist! The call of the Reese's peanut butter cup... or the Kit Kat... or the string cheese. I did eventually get an upset stomach, but not brain fog! But I will be a good girl from now on. Unhuh.
  6. I was a bad girl for Halloween. I ate a Twix bar. A gluten, casein, and soy challenge in one convenient little package! And I feel fine. I'm having a few reactions, but those are more my psychosomatic reactions (stupid anxiety ). It's very exciting. I'm not going to make this a regular thing until after I start the allergy shots, but it's nice to see I can tolerate it moderately without them. Also, report on my last LED: treated again for aluminum and gold groups. And I started on some heavy-duty detox support stuff. It put me to sleep for the first few days (so I took a day off), and after that I haven't had any detox reaction to it. Rachel, I'm so glad you've finally found out what *it* is you're chasing. Sara
  7. Hi Everyone, Just thought it was time for a bit of an update. I've been doing a lot better lately, even with cutting down on the abx a bit. However, the sulfates in the abx are really doing a number on me. Also, last Wednesday I went to the dentist (not biological). I don't have any fillings or need anything drilled, but they did put sealants on my teeth (plastic, basically) and then there was fluoride in the paste (I refuse the fluoride rinse). Plus, the hygienist was wearing latex gloves. Before I went I was tolerating a lot more things, but now... not so much. I'm also very suspicious of the sealants due to the random boughts of nausea I've been having. Ah well. I have another LED today, and will report back asap. Also, my prayers are with Donna today.
  8. It turns out I didn't get the mercury LED yesterday afterall. My last LED didn't clear, and I also had to re-do the Sulfa LED. At this point it looks like I don't detox sulfas well, so I'm going to have to do this LED monthly... and I might just skip the other ones and just do chelation on them. It's rather frustrating, because if I don't detox then I can't do those allergy shots, and I can't move forward. Birdy
  9. Hi all, Just thought I'd update you all. I'm having a mercury LED tomorrow... and I found out that I have OAS (Oral Allergy Syndrome). That's about it for now. Birdy
  10. It was explained to me, Sherry, that I needed to be on a PPI to reduce the stomach acid so the abx could get to it. I can't do the bismuth as it's related to aspirin and I'm allergic to NSAIDs. I have an herbal thing I'll be taking along with it, too. Birdy
  11. Kassandra, I hope the Reglan works well for you, I've been on it for several months now, and it's worked wonders for me. I'm also considering going back on a PPI. I need to get at the h.pylori bugs that are partying in my stomach, and to do that I need a PPI. Although I haven't had any reflux for a while. Birdy
  12. I'm back from Williamsburg now, and the mold patch is now OUT of my carpet! I'm glad surgery went well for Kassandra, but hopefully the pain will reduce soon so she can go home. Birdy
  13. That would be amazing if you were at the end of this, Carla! Glad you could make it through the games, Paula. Birdy
  14. Poor Kassandra. Ugh, yet another thing to deal with. I'm glad you've found a way to get the fluid you need, Carla. I hope the D lets up soon. Birdy
  15. Thanks, everyone! Kassandra, I hope things continue going well and that you're ferritin is in normal range. Carla, I'm having some D too, probably from the supplement I was having problems with. Sherry, I'd normally agree with you about the supplement being a problem itself, but I was tested for it with BioSet. So I'm fairly certain that's not it. Birdy
