Does anyone have a relative like this?

We live with my husbands parents. His brother and wife come round for dinner at least once a week and NEVER bring anything, and even take the leftovers for THEIR kid for daycare. They always ask us to take things to their house though.

Now they have decided to have an Easter egg hunt at their house. They want everyone to bring food, AND eggs!

Mmmmm think I might be too busy to take the kids round!

That's the thIng they are not poor, their income is at least twice ours,

Because we live with my inlays we have to be careful ot to rock the boat, but they seem to think everything is theirs! They even took one of kids tops because they liked it and hadn't seen our eldest wear it for a while, needless to say the next time we were at their house I just took it back and wrote the name of my youngest in it!

My stepdads brother is like that. If it's nothing something exactly to his taste or what HE wants to do, he b%$@#es and bails. It's the most annoying thing in the world. He always makes his mom who is in her late 60's, host ALL of the holiday events and now that Thanksgiving is gluten free and I cook EVERYTHING, he acts like a little brat that it's not what he wants and he's vegetarian and thinks everyone else should cook extra, vegetarian, dishes just for him. *rolls eyes*

Unfortunately, I know your pain!  Someone took off with about 1/2 of the gluten free chocolate birthday cake I worked my a$$ off to make.  Just took it home with them.  Iwas making about 3 cakes for kids birthday parties for the past few years.  Now I know people (who can eat gluten) were just sitting waiting to take it home.

 

I was recently sent an e-mail from a niece explaining about "name day" celebration for her daughter.  We are American, never had any ties to this before.  The e-mail went like this....  She and husband went through the added inconvenience of picking a foreign government approved name list for kid to have the added PRIVILEDGE of celebrating name day.  We are to think of this as "another small birthday" per year.  Date clelebrating will be this date and send chocolates or birthday appropriate gifts.  (Live in a different state)  Kid probably won't care much this year but, this will be a big "deAL" for her in upcoming years.  So nice of her to notify me I owe her kid 2 gifts a year for the rest of life with suggestions/directions for what to purchase.  Mind you there is more history to this situation that just makes this the straw that broke the camel's back.

 

Yes relatives have even taken the clothes we wear.  (Especially darling niece mentioned above.)

 

Now I have an aunt that is making up crazy stories about me.  I have not had any interaction with the fruit Loop for at least 3 years.  (These stories would in reality require me to speak to her to even remotely happen!!?)  I am concerned she needs medical help.  Maybe a brain tumor or mental illness? 

 

If family makes you miserable, don't go!  You can "love" someone (in a family way), but you just can't make yourself LIKE them.  Life is too short to get sucked down into this crap.  It's your holiday too.

 

Oh, and take it from me..  When you show up for a holday and this happens...  Pre gluten free days mind you...  I found this recipe.  It's kugel.  It's a Jewish type recipe.  Mother-in-law says Only you would bring something Jewish to Easter!!  Me responding with a shocked smirk  "You do know Jesus was Jewish don't you?"

I know there are a million trillion family variations for kugel recipes.  The ultimate in ironic?  This recipe goes very well with ham!

And I assume they don't have to eat gluten-free food and we all know regular food is cheaper!!!!

 

I have a cousin who had provision added to her mother's will (when my Aunt was unconscious) and it stated that if the Estate went below 2 Million she didn't have to honor any bequests. Well somehow when the Estate was probated it was $200 shy of 2 million. She also never sent copies of the will to anyone in it. The real kicker is the bequests (including to my elderly mother, me and charities) totalled $125,000. My cousin is financially wealthy but is one of the poorest people I know.

 

Vent away - we're all in this together!!!!!

 

Love,

Loey

Holy crap Loey!

 

I think thieving from inheritance is just one of the lowest things that can be done.  I have been so screwed over everytime there was an inheritance issue.

 

My dad never settled anything when my mom died.  He remarried and his wife has made sure NOTHING will go to any of the children from the marriage.  (I know that is HIS fault for letting this happen.)  My dad was diagnosed with cancer Christmas of 2011.  Guess where she was when he was in the hospital?  That's right, cleaning out all the banks accounts!  Now I do believe she is really POed cause guess what?  He lives on and is cancer free!

    • We rarely drink orange juice.  Why?  Because it is full of fructose which is not bad, but you would probably never sit down and eat more than 2 oranges in one sitting.  Makes you wonder why diabetes is so prevalent.  The other reason is laziness.  I have citrus trees and juicing them takes time and work.  I reserve that for special occasions.   Citrus is acidic.  It can be harsh on a damaged gut.   My non-celiac kid actually gets hives from eating too many oranges.  Moderation can be a good thing.   Consider getting your vitamin C by eating fruit and not juice.   
    • Hi duliano, Was he tested for celiac disease?  If he is positive for celiac disease, you'll need to spend some time learning about it.  Celiac disease tends to run in families, so you and your spouse should also be tested if it is celiac. There is another condition called NCGS which some people have.  Those people also get sick from eating wheat, rye, and barley, but they don't have the gut damage that celiac's get. Recovery from celiac disease damage can take 18 months or more.  It is not a fast process for most of us.  The antibodies that cause the damage slowly reduce in number over time.  Possibly weeks to months.  Even a small crumb of wheat, rye or barley can cause the antibodies to flare up again.  Then the damage starts again and it's back to recovery. It sounds like you are giving him a good diet.  Meat, veggies, nuts, and eggs are good for the first 6 months.  After that people find they can sometimes add dairy milk back into their diet.  You need to avoid cross contamination from shared foods like mayo or peanut butter or even a  shared toaster.   Think of gluten like a tiny germ that you can't see but it can be there.  It's really helpful to not have any gluten in the house, if that is possible.  Also you have to watch out for other people giving him treats that have gluten. Welcome to the forum duliano!
    • My RA blood test was negative and my dsDNA was negative too.  I think that the dsDNA is the lupus test.  I think.  I haven't been referred to a rheumatologist.   
    • Some people will always test negative on the blood test, odd and rare but it happens. You also have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the antibodies to show up for it in the test for at least 12 weeks. You can follow up with a endoscope and biopsy, if your having gut issues this might be a great idea to rule out other issues. I might also suggest a colonoscopy to rule out Ulcerative Colitis or other digestive issues there. Other thoughts you could have SIBO or NCGS. NCGS  can not be diagnosed...heck I was writing up a bit of a summary page for someone else about it might as well make use of the partially filled out notepad here.  Forgive any typos or misinformation still working it out for various sources. " 1. Acne, Flushed Skin, or Rashes
      Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity can manifest itself as a chronic skin condition such as a rash, acne, or red/flushedcheeks, but these conditions could also be hormonal. On the other hand Celiac disease also has Dermatitis herpetiformic or DH, which is characterized by rashes and chronically itchy, elbows, knees, buttons, and back. 2. Distended Stomach or Bloating
      A distended or bloated stomach applies especially after gluten consumption and is a fairly clear sign of gluten sensitivity. A distended stomach is also characteristic of malnutrition as well of celiac disease. 3. Diarrhea, Gas, or Constipation
      These three  symptoms can simultaneously occur after eating gluten and may be a sign of intolerance because,especially the former, is a way for the body to expel harmful allergens or other substances. Often, diarrhea(frequent loose or liquid stools) occurs with gas, resulting in a “feeling of a full or tight abdomen” as put by the NFCA. Constipation, essentially the antithesis of diarrhea, is also a symptom of non-celiac gluten sensitivity and is characterized by infrequent, hard, painful bowel movements from lack of physical activity or poor diet,namely a diet high in refined carbs rich in gluten. This can be made worse if one has a magnesium deficiency, does not get though hard fiber, or drink enough water. All of which can be made worse by the feeling of bloat/gas making one feel too full to need to drink or eat high fiber foods. 4. Brain Fog or Migraines
      Brain fog is a major characteristic of non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Chronic or debilitating migraines goes hand in hand with the idea of brain fog and results in depression or irritability. These again can be made worse by deficiencies, like B-vitamins. 5. Joint Pain or Numbness in Extremities
      Tingling, pain, or numbness in the joints or extremities is abnormal and should be a clear sign of a health problem like gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Colloquially, this tingling is described as “pins and needles” or a limbbeing “asleep.” If this happens frequently for no apparent reason, it could be a sign of gluten intolerance. Again these can help be alleviated and be made worse by deficiencies in Magnesium, B-vitamins
      Total elimination of the gluten protein for an extended period of time, say two weeks or a month, is the only true way to identify if these symptoms are linked to gluten intolerance, and even then, it would not be certain. If the protein is eliminated and any of the above symptoms dissipate, then it should be noted that gluten intolerance may be an issue, but be sure to consult a professional for solid proof."  
    • I have a friend who reacts to raw oranges, apples, and bananas. Funny thing is they are fine with cooked foods using them and pasturized orange juice. Some odd food allergy that gets broken down with heat. SIDE NOTE. I just reintroduced iceberg lettuce, and romaine after not having any in 4 months......I HAVE A NEW INTOLERANCE. even just plain iceberg organic, pieces from the core without chemicals make me horrible sick and vomiting....they used to be fine....WTF?! Oh well spinach is fine and the canned stuff is cheaper and more nutrient dense....but really WTF?! Yeah I tried 2 brands and even the organic one.
