Still nice and warm here in Croatia. Lush and very, very green. Back in Canada? Not so much...

You'll probably have a crust of ice on your windows when you get back! I can't figure out why you don't just stay in Croatia. A perfect paradise sure sounds better than living in a freezer box.

So sorry you're already getting hit with snow. It's cold in RI & that's caused the foliage to be lackluster. Lots of bare trees already. Praying the snow doesn't cause power outages or other bad conditions for you! Those of you in warmer climates have the right idea!

Starting next May we will be living here and cannot wait. Just one more icky winter to get through!!! There is a lot of residency red tape and such to get through but it will be so worth it in the end.

And I keep telling Love2 that May will be here before she knows it.

And soon, she will be living in her Paradise. Yaaay!! :)

 

I hate to report this, because I am not trying to be  a wiseguy-- honest--

but every day is a lovely sunny 80-something (NO humidity) and the lows are 71.

I used to live in Indiana.  I moved to Arizona to get away from the snow.  Now all I have is dust and a severe case of chronic hayfever.  So much fun.  I wasn't expecting that.  Still, I really hated the snow and truly understand what a pain it can be!

Sorry to hear of your hayfever. Not a great trade, is it?

So, we have had tons of snow on the ground for two weeks. Three blizzards with rain between so the streets are polished thick ice. Our coldest temp has been -22C thus far...soooooooooooo relieved this is our last Canadian winter!

Well a cold front moved through here and we were down to a frigid 79 on Wednesday.

I actually saw some people with leather jackets or hoodies and sweats on.

Really, people?

IT'S 79!!! I'm still sitting on the beach for crying out loud.

Good thing it went back up to 82 yesterday or these peeps would have been cranking up the heat.

Can't wait until my blood thins out like that.

Ha.  My Mom has lived in Hawaii around 10 years now and when they visit me in Ohio in August the heat, which really effects me poorly, has no effect on them and if the temperature drops below 80 they are reaching for a throw :lol:

Haha. I was talking to my daughter yesterday in AR and it was mid-60s there. She had to go outside and was getting a coat. Not a jacket, a COAT!!! I'd be out in a freakin t-shirt. And my kids both wish it snowed more. They'd probably both freeze to death.

 

We had snow yesterday. Instead of the overnight snow that melts away first thing we had snow all day long. It was sitting right around 33-34 though so it melted off the roads and only stuck on the grass. Perfect. ^_^ It'll be gone today though. Mid 40s which isn't even jacket weather with the sun out, just long sleeves.

Being used to really hot temps, then going to a place with a really cold winter is not fun.

Psh, they lived in PA before they moved. They should consider AR a tropical paradise in comparison!

LOL Ah geez! Our country's hot spots are in BC and it's cool and rainy there now.  

 

It was -20C today. I think that's about 80F less than you have down there, Irish! LOL  Winter has moved in.  :ph34r: <-- Forget ninja, dude is wearing a balaclava!

Gosh, snow on the ground last week and tornados last night.  I believe Mother Nature has "brain fog".

It was 60 yesterday and in the upper 50's earlier today. The temperature has just plummeted and it's supposed to rain/snow. They are warning that the roads will become icy quickly. I'll be heading home the minute it starts to precipitate. Supposed to be in the lower teens tonight and zero tomorrow night. By Saturday they say it'll be back in the 40's. Rollercoaster weather!

We've got cold and wet, but no snow. It's been drizzly and chilly for a few days and it looks to keep up with the same nonsense, only getting outright cold. Today it won't get much above 40, if it hits that at all. I'm fine with 40 in the sun but with drizzles? It's outright frigid! After I do a second kidney bean trial if things go well I'll officially have them and winter will be looking a little more appealing with chili in my future. Especially on days like today.  :)

This is going to sounds stupid, but I wouldn't mind a little snow right now. It feels warmer with snow than it does with cold and rain.

    • Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than the moment when you're in the middle of it. I forgot to mention, yeah, I have had a full vitamin, mineral, and general blood panel done and everything came back normal. Regardless I still supplement with a good (and expensive) multivitamin plus sublingual D3 and B12 every day, and naturally I scrutinize the labels on those and everything else for anything even non-gluten that sounds fishy, including the possibility of CC at the factory. I guess it will just take longer to stabilize.
    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).
