Maybe the brain fog just lifted this morning?

 

" You're out of the woods

  You're out of the dark 

 You're out of the night. 

 Step into the sun,

step into the light ...."

 

:)

 

 

Nuttin' like that fog lifting for good.

I'm going into the light....

 

Oh,  I will need to strap some parasols onto my chair as I am terrified of the sun.  And, no offense Irish, I would like California since the humidity is lower, just saying...

I do not do humidity. Like... ever. There is simply no excuse for water in the air. Utah is beautiful year round. Plus we have skiing. Lots of people say we have the best snow on earth, better than CO anyway, all they get is our leftovers. :lol: I don't do snow either, but I can keep the cocoa hot for the snow bunnies all winter long.

 

Plus we have Moab and Arches National Park. Tons of forests and canyons and that sort of thing too. And cities for us civilized folk. The kind with In N Out.

 Nonsense!  it gives curl to your hair and makes your skin all dewey.

 

(but really, this is why they invented "central air")

 

hey, all I know is, I feel GREAT down there.

Wrong!  It gives kinks to your hair and frizzy ends and makes your feets swell :ph34r:

I must be "different". :ph34r: my "half-Mediterranean" roots and all?? Neither my Dad nor I felt this way in the humidity.

 

NOTE: We are coming NORTH in July and August to see the ponies at Saratoga and visit family & friends

in Mass, NH and Cape Cod.

BINGO! I think that some of us are just different. I couldn't stand the weather last time I visited PA and it was only in the 80s most days. It was all I could to to drag myself from bed to the shower to a chair to sweat in all day.

 

I hated the humidity growing up, and I hate it more now. To be fair though, my hair lost all its curl when I came to Utah. :( Straight as a board now, and totally tragic.

 

But hey, if it doesn't make you hate life I say enjoy it!

I want to thank everyone who responded to my post i really appreciate all your feedback. I don't know anyone else with celiacs. Alot of the time i feel like people think i am exaggerating about how i don't want any food with gluten around me. Trying to explain that a simple crumb can make me sick. When food gets brought into the house like pizza by my teenage boys makes me cringe. It's just nice to have people that understand and know more about the disease than i do. I can tell you all are going to be invaluable to me and i thank you.:)

    • If you're going to continue to push for a diagnosis stay on gluten! A break could lead to a false negative. It's a lot harder to go off it and then go back on...   
    • I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly.  I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic.  Moderation is key to most everything!  😊
    • I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.
    • I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these                                      * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free     AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah. 
    • Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess!  My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation. Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!
