So here's the deal... We need daycare, but can't afford it.  And right now, we can't afford for me not to be working...  And this is really the last week I'll actually have people able to watch my kiddo.  I cannot work full time cause of scheduling conflicts with my hubby, and SOOOOO my only option is basically to work from home... But I don't want to be scammed, so anyone know of good reliable companies that provide Work At Home jobs?

Too bad we can't Internet babysit! We could pass the baby around and all get our baby fix!

I know people who work from home, but they have their own businesses selling or doing book keeping/ medical billing. Not something you could start next week.

I don't know what hours hub works but could you at least be a waitress or work the overnight shift at Walmart until you can arrange something better? Our Walmarts always need overnight workers.

Hahaha internet babysitting... now THAT would solve ALL my problems lol!  I guess the thing I could do is try and find someone else who works and we could do a co-op daycare or something... Fortunately I work a somewhat flexible schedule right now, but its during the day when hubby works no matter how I work it.  I think we might just have hubby switch group homes because the one he's at now is just a pain in the arse schedule wise.  (He's also 'looking' for a new job, though not hard enough IMO)

As for waitressing, I suppose now that I'm... how old am I?  I clean forgot!  Anyway, I'm over 21 now, so I guess I could.  (Yeah you can't serve unless you are 21 or older in Utah.)  But Walmart I don't think I could manage, especially not grave shifts.  (Long story as to why... come to think of it, I'd probably have trouble waitressing... gah!)

One of the things that most companies require for employees who work from home is a home office. It has to be where the computer is, sometimes have a phone, and have a door. They expect their employees to work without interruption, just as they would if they actually came into a work office, so you would likely have to alternate your schedule with your husband's, working while he is home. Some companies also simply set up schedules, just as if it were a real office.

 

I know you've said that doing traditional college isn't for you, but maybe you could consider a technical college. There isn't any of that writing and stuff, just learn things, test for them and get out. Once you've done that, maybe finding something at home for medical stuff would be easier and employers are less likely to have demands on the time of day you work, and more likely to be interested only in the amount of hours you work.

 

Unless you work for yourself, working from home is not what some people think it is or spread rumors it is. And working for yourself is not exactly sunshine and roses.

just drop the kid here - everybody else does!  lolz!  and don't pay me - nobody else does!  :D  

 

i watch (my grandson, my neice & nephew, the kid next-door, etc...) the kids so their parents can work.  i always hope they're getting ahead, then i hear they do stupid crap with their $$ and wonder what i'm doing this for.......

 

you can probably do some sort of customer service from home - i toyed with the idea for a minute - you need to have a dedicated space, though, and you may not be able to take a break when you need to tend to your sweet baboo.  i was brokering freight from the house but it was too stressful - i wasn't eating.

I used to work from home.  I worked for HP on a network management contract.  Some companies use work from home employees for their help desk support.  My job was long hours even tho it was at home.  A help desk job / customer support position would most likely be fixed hours instead, which is probably better for you.

Before I opened my shop I used to give guitar lessons out of my home. Made a darned good living too.

 

Mom used to make and decorate wedding cakes before she got sick. Then she started making afgans and sweaters and baby clothes. She made a lot of money once she got going.

 

I have a friend who makes jewelry and sells it on consignment at a local jewelry store.

 

So, what are your talents? It takes a while to build up clientele, but if you can make something at home and sell it, eventually you might be able to make enough money to live on. Are you good at making gluten-free goodies? :D

I used to work from home a few years ago, but stopped because I had 3 very young kids and I was losing my mind! I'm going to be taking a few daycare kids now that 2 of my 3 are going to be in school. I start September 4th... I'm nervous, but excited!

Bartfull - I think you are a psychic or something!  I don't openly advertise that I bake!  And yet you figured me out! Hahahaha

 

notme! - sure thing!  Free daycare ftw!  (Kidding.  Don't have any idea where you are!)

 

Meanwhile, I think we've come to a conclusion.  Hubby's gonna find a second job and I'll STAY at home.

Well, I've never been called psychic although a few people have called me psych-O. :blink:  :lol:

 

How about you send me some of those baked goodies and I'll tell you if I think you can make money selling them? :)

No soy and no corn. Oh, and I'm off of dairy and sugar right now too. Let's see, what does that leave? Not MUCH!! Guess I'll have to wait a while until I get some of these things back. :angry:

Hmmm only thing that complicates my cooking is the sugar.  *thinks*  What do you use as a replacement?

(I use mostly rice flour in my cooking hence the reason why I say no soy and no corn isn't a problem lol)

 

Edit: Carob doesn't bother you does it?  (I use carob as a chocolate replacement since I try to avoid chocolate.  Sometimes I can't resist though.)

Stevia for a sweetener? I don't know about carob - haven't tried it. Chocolate seems to bother me though. I still think salicylates are bothering me so carob is probably out. (I had a Lara bar yesterday, the one with nothing in it but cashews and dates. Had a bad reaction and I know cashews don't bother me so it must have been the dates. The sals forum lists dried fruit as very high in sals. It's a shame because it was good.)

Okay, well I've got other recipes I can make without carob and probably without salicylates.

 

And oh yeah!  Forgot about Stevia!

 

*grin* I'm up for this challenge... it will be fun!

    • Hello and welcome You've found a good site for advice and support.  Google suggests there is a link between EoE and Celiac, but at the moment that seems to be as much as anyone knows: https://www.emaxhealth.com/12410/celiac-disease-increases-risk-eosinophilic-esophagitis https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-96 Although it's not true that having one means you have the other.  You may want to read this thread for the experiences and ideas of others here who have experienced Burning Mouth Syndrome: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/106704-burning-sensation-in-mouth/ There were lots more gluten and BMS articles, so if a direct link hasn't been made, there's food for thought there along with some interesting thoughts on B and Iron deficiencies and possible additional food intolerances. No please don't. If the biopsy is inconclusive they may want a second one or further blood tests (you don't mention if they already did these?). Once you eliminate gluten from your diet these tests are inaccurate. That's not to say you shouldn't trial the diet, just make sure with your doctor you only do so once tests are complete. I'd add that even if you test negative you have nothing to lose from trialling a gluten free diet and as someone who did test negative I highly recommend you do, but only once testing is done! In the meantime, start a food diary. Log what you eat, when, and how you feel. Just short notes but make it a habit and try to capture everything you put in your mouth.  Build a record that you can use to find patterns. Maybe a trigger for the BMS will become apparent over time. Best of luck    
    • Funny you should ask about Lectins because I am currently recovering from a recent run in with some pinto beans.  After reading soaking longer than overnight helps break down those Lectins, I soaked them for twenty-four hours  Then I cooked the spots off them!  And still, they have wreaked havoc in my tummy.  Ugh!   So while recuperating, I did some research.  While cooking can break down some of the lectins, the only way to get rid of them completely is to cook them in a pressure cooker.  I was surprised to find that Lectins are histamine releasers!  Lectins make Mast cells release all their histamine.  Aha!   The red wine and balsamic vinegars and the bottled lemon juice are all high in Sulfites.  Sulfites are histamine releasers, too.  Apple cider vinegar is lower in Sulfites.   Lectins stimulate the autoimmune system: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25599185 More on Lectins and autoimmune diseases: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1115436/ And for Enis' affinity for chocolate nibs...(as well as my own)... Chocolate is a source of copper.  Copper deficiency causes neuropathy.   My neuropathy has gotten worse recently and my chocolate cravings have increased.  Hmmmm...... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 More info on copper http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/minerals/copper So...I'm wondering if I've neglected taking copper along with my calcium and magnesium.  I'm starting supplementing this week. Is copper in any of your protein powders, Enis?   I hope this helps.
    • I have neuropathy. Mine is worse with cold. My hands and toes get so bad I cry. I don't know what to do to make it better but just wanted you to know you aren't alone. I hate feeling alone with this disease.
    • Just recently found this article about a woman suffering from neuropathy which was caused by copper deficiency caused by Celiac Disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19901719 Copper deficiency myeloneuropathy due to occult celiac disease. "...the authors suggest that some cases of ataxia associated with celiac disease are likely due to copper deficiency myeloneuropathy."
