  1. Depression

    Relacore is an otc cortisol blocker. It's marketed as a weight loss aide. I buy mine at Kroger because it's cheaper there than drug stores. Cortislim is about the same thing, but for me it doesn't work as well. I tried it because my doctor thought that my hives might be from stress. It helped with them, so I thought I had found the solution for a while. Eventually I ended up with my Celiac dx and figured out that's what was causing them. Relacore uses rice as a filler. I also take Oil of Olay vitamins (the energy pack) and if I take 2 packs those days it seems to help. They're the greatest vitamins I've ever tried. Oh yeah, and I eat a bunch of chocolate and ice cream and try to tell myself that crying is therapeutic.
  2. Robitussin meds and drops are ok too.
  3. I'd say that depends on each kid. My little brother stayed sick for 5 days or more when something knocked him down. My son is almost always better in 3 days no matter what he's dealing with.
  4. Girl Ninja or Girl Head are hubby's affectionate nicknames for me. If he has a specific reason for choosing those, I don't know what it is. What a weirdo, eh? It's cool, though. It could be soo much worse. kaycee - LMAO! That's awesome. My grandma has 4 daughters. Her youngest is my aunt Barb. She's in her 40's now and to this day whenever my grandma writes her name on anything she writes Barbarbara. We've all tried to fix it. She's really glad my grandma wasn't the one who wrote it on her birth certificate. Rinne - How do you know that? Is it another language? How do you pronounce it? I'm fascinated that I learned a new word.
  5. Depression

    In addition to a variety of other symptoms, gluten makes me extremely over sensitive and depressed. I spend at least a whole day crying, sometimes more. I stress about issues in my personal relationships (like my brother must hate me because he hasn't called me in a month) that really aren't there. I feel overwhelmed by even simple tasks if there's any obligation or deadline attached. At first, it's hard to recognize it for what it is, especially if I don't realize that I was glutened. Strangely, before I went gluten-free my depression symptoms were way more aggressive. I didn't cry or mope. I felt really angry and was combative, negative, verbally abusive, etc. That's pretty much gone now except for rare instances. The "other depression" is new to me and I'm still working on coping methods. If I know that I've been glutened, I take Relacore. It helps with the depression/ desperation feelings and also keeps my hives to a minimum.
  6. Ranch Dressing

    The Denny's I worked at used a powdered ranch we had to mix up ourselves and I believe the mix was from Hidden Valley. Aren't their normal ranch dressings we can get at the store not safe either?
  7. Is there an Asian market anywhere near you? I have looked for wonton wraps that don't have wheat gluten, but I haven't found any at the mainstream grocers near me. All the spring roll wraps I've found have wheat. I think I might have to find myself an Asian market. It's the crab rangoon I miss the most. As for the sausage, I think we need more info on what exactly her issue is. Whatever she can't have, I'm sure someone on here can help.
  8. The gold Dial always made me itch like crazy. But not the other scents so much. We use Irish Spring and Dove stuff.

    Irish and French-Canadian-Indian. That second one is all one. My great grandmother was Indian and lived on a reservation in Canada. She had a tribal name and also a French name.
  12. Deprovera

    I'm curious about the ring too. I got the Dep shot for a while. Made me gain 25 lbs. I liked it other than that, but I knew lots of people who had the extended bleeding problem. My cousin was on it for years after she had her daughter. Then she divorced, married a new guy, and started trying for a baby with her new husband. It took her 5 years to conceive. There's a new implant one I saw on the news last week that goes in your arm. I had the sound off, so I didn't catch the name or how long it's good for. Have you considered an IUD? One friend of mine has a copper one because she can't use anything with hormones. She loves it and it can stay in for 7 to 10 years pretty much maintenance free. There's a plastic one that releases hormones too.
  13. Dog Food/treats?

    Thanks, guys! I just got a puppy myself and I've been feeling kind of sick ever since, so i was wondering the same things. Does anyone have recipes for making your own dog treats? I'm gonna look for the Milk Bone ones tonight.
