I can't tell if this website is slower today, or if its my computer? Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? :blink: Sometimes I have problems locating a post from a previous day, why is that? Someone wrote me from yesterday, and it took me a while to pull up her post, so I could respond to her post??? Is it something I'm doing wrong? :huh:

Hi Carrie,

My husband has been playing around with our cables, trying to get TIVO television that is in our livingroom in our bedroom, and having to go up in the attic and pull cables, it's probably that. I'm on his computer now, his is a little faster. I think I'll just stay on his, he he, all day, no kidding.

I was wondering though, do you know Carrie, why somtimes posts that you write just dissapear into Neverland?????

Thanks, :)

Kim

Nikki-

I'm still kind of confused what 'pinned' means, as a new member. I just know it's difficult to find your post after your post has been pinned because that's when it seems to dissapear.

Is that when whomever runs this site decides that not enough people are looking at it, so they move it??

I really have no idea what pinned is??

Kim,

When you post a topic it goes to the back of all the other topics in the forum until a moderator reads it and "pins" it. Then it will go to the front. Sometimes it can take a few hours until your topic is pinned. You can always see your topic (even before its pinned) in "today's active topics"....which is a link toward the bottom of the main page.

Hope this helps. :)

Let me add...........

When I read a post and go to back, it brings me back the the "click on message board", and not to the new forum site. I may be doing something wrong, but it seems to be changed. Those that make sense?? :blink:

Hello Rachel-

I'm just curious "who is a moderator?" is that someone who makes sure, that no one posts a how should we put it, obscene post? What is the point of the moderator? Just curious. And do 'they' decide if a topic gets 'pinned' or not?? :blink:

I now understand that you can always see your topic in "today's active topics" by using the link toward the bottom of the main page now, thank you.

I'm wondering, if you write a topic, and it doesn't get enough replies, if that's when they pull your topic off to pin it, and stick it somewhere else?

One more question, sometimes I will be looking for my post and see if anyone wrote anything after my post, and it will have on top of the page 2 pages or so, and I try to go to the second page, and it takes me backwards to a really old, sometimes completely off topic page, or it will ask me to wait while it moves me to another topic and I can't find my answer to see if anyone replied to me, because now I'm somewhere all together new, and not anywhere near where I need to be.

It's like they removed it all together? Does that make sense? If not, could you just answer the first 2 questions please.

Thanks, Rachel,

Kim07

A moderator approves the post and pins it in the proper section. If you did not post it in the section we feel is correct a moderator can move it to the section they feel is the best for the topic and pin it and thats why it will ask you to wait while it take you to that post.

Spam we will not pin and and anything obscene we will not pin.

Until a moderator pins the topic you can see your post under Today's Active Topics...when it is not pinned it will go to the back of the section and then when it is pinned it will move to the front and go in order of the times.

Moderators also deal with duplicate posts and get complaints about any posts, etc.

Hope this helps :)

Kaiti already gave a description of the moderator's "duties".

No, a moderator will not move your topic if it doesnt get responses. It doesnt get stuck anywhere else...but topics that do get responses will always move to the front so yours will get pushed farther back if noone has posted on it. Once someone does reply to your topic it will then go back to the front. Hope that makes sense. :)

I think I understand a lot better.

It just takes a while to learn how to move around a new forum.

    • Hey guys!  I have been suffering from NCGS for almost a year, and have recently been diagnosed with IBS.  Although I was finally getting used to the gluten free routine, this has been really hard to get used to.  I'm currently having a major flare, so I'm off pretty much all fodmaps (although mainly beans, dairy, nuts, and gluten). Additionally, my stomach can't handle more than a 1/2 cup portion per meal, and even then, I'll occasionally have pain after eating.  Does anybody have simple, fast meals that they could share? As if this isn't restrictive enough, I'm also allergic to eggs, so I'm pretty much living off smoothies, rice, and allergy free chicken sandwiches.  I know this is pretty restrictive, but I thought that if anybody could help, it would be you guys.  Thanks!  Claire 
    • Great advice everyone! So the envirokids gorillla munch by natures path is safe?. As for cinnamon Chex is that ok too? 
    • Alright, so I'm 3 months into being gluten free, And in terms of how I feel, the "best fit" line on the graph would be a very slow incline, which is good, but day to day, I would mark as all over the place. I don't understand. I pretty much do the same things every day, and eat the same things every day at around the same times, even in the same order. I cook all my own food and am super careful about CC. I even have my own pans, cutting boards, even my own sponge for washing my own aforementioned kitchen supplies. What I eat is very limited. I don't even do dairy, grains, or added sugar. (for now) Yesterday I actually felt okay. The brain fog was fairly thin, I felt more based in reality, rather than like I was in the matrix, on drugs, or in a dream. Today I'm back in the matrix again. I can't think, I have anxiety, I'm overly emotional, short fused, angry, and scared of my own shadow. This up and down for no apparent reason stuff seems to be the norm for me. Is this unheard of or somewhat common? It seems like how I feel is completely out of my control, and the disease just does whatever it wants. I know 3 months isn't that long in the usual recovery time frame, but I want to get off this ride. I just need to know if it's normal to be so up and down day to day during the recovery, or if I should give in to my assumed unfounded panic attacks and be worried. As a side note, I'd much rather have the typical gastro issues usually associated with celiac. Blowing chunks and crapping my pants constantly would be way easier for me to deal with than all the neurological problems mine manifested as. Ugh.
    • Ha, Ha!!!!!!  If I wouldn't get in trouble for practicing without a license, I would!     I get it because that is what they did to me for years.  I never had acid reflux but had enough other symptoms that all screamed Celiac but no.........they told me that my severe stomach pain might be acid reflux so take this script and go away. They never even tried to figure it out past the 10 minutes allowed for the appointment. I'll never forget one doctor that I pushed back on and told her I was not there for meds but to find out what was actually wrong and she got so mad she left the room and never came back. All they kept doing was trying to shove pills down my throat.   I am guessing that the procedure is the one where they tighten the sphincter muscle at the entrance to your stomach? I know so many people who had that done because it's become so common to push that if the meds aren't working well. Follow the money........ If acid reflux becomes that bad, then you have to start looking at food, period.
    • Here's a link that discusses Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (histamine intolerance) and recommended tests.  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/mast-cell-activation-syndrome/ This article explains how POTS is related to MCAS. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3545645/#!po=35.0000 "In another clinical situation, Shibao et al. and colleagues studied a small cohort of patients who had evidence of mast cell activation as evidenced by elevated urine levels of N-methylhistamine after flushing episodes and who had orthostatic intolerance (69). Detailed studies revealed a profound hyperadrenergic response to standing characterized by tachycardia and hypertension consistent with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, or POTS. This phenomenon is felt to be due the release of vasoactive mediators such as histamine that act locally on sympathetic nerves; autonomic function was assessed to be normal in these patients. The authors have used methyldopa, an alpha-adrenergic agonist, with some success in these patients along with standard medications to block mast cell mediators. They caution against the use of beta-blockers, which may exacerbate mast cell activation."   Vitamin and mineral deficiencies often occur with Celiac Disease.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption which results in malnutrition.  It's important to correct nutritional deficiencies after a Celiac Crisis like you endured with your gluten challenge.   Vitamin D is so important!  Vitamin D tells the mast cells to turn off histamine production.   https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4154631/ Vitamins C and E and B6 help, too. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21244748 The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  Not enough B vitamins can make one grouchy (or seemingly an alien).  Just watch "Naked and Afraid" on Discovery channel.  The contestants who don't get protein (chock full of B vitamins) get grouchy, depressed, and irritable.  Some contestants have to be removed because their personality changes to the point they become dangerous.  This is a drastic example of vitamin deficiencies that develop over a short period of time, three weeks.  Now imagine having a subclinical deficiency over a long period and a slower health disintegration.   I lost my faith in doctors when my deficiency diseases were not recognized and addressed.  So, I used my food journal and the low histamine diet guidelines to get my inflammation down and my vitamins and minerals up.  Hope this helps.
