Oh, HOW can you do that? My husband always wonders what takes me so long ... I say, I have to wipe off the seat, be sure every inch is covered with paper, etc. I'm obsessive about it, but I cannot hover!!

LMAO! I wish I kept a copy of the article that was out recently of testing that was done and it showed there was more germs on our cell phones than on a public toilet!

It also said you're more likely to get sick touching a co-workers keyboard than sitting on a public toilet.

Blue rooms are cleaner than picnic tables - BUT you will never catch me sitting on a public toilet in a blue room or not (I saw the thing on cell phones and my hubby used to think I cleaned my obsessively before!).

I clean my phones ... no one else uses my computer ... I have no coworkers ... okay, both my mom and dad are OCD! Six kids has cured me of much of it though!! I always clean the cart at the grocery, I love those wipes they provide, although I find it funny that some get their cart, then push it over to the wipes, it's too late then!! I'm actually more afraid of gluten than bacteria!!!! :lol:

Did anyone see the science fair project done by an 8th grader who got ice from public restaurants and water from their toilets ... she tested both and found in most restaurants the toilet water was cleaner???? :blink: Some restaurants changed their ice procedures, then invited her back!!

To anyone this is truth groning up I said sick my mom never let me touch a thing in an public restroom from the toilet to the doorknob nothing I thought the were pure poisen . Later in school I had to to a lab test we were all given test glass to grow something and the name it Well, I and my lab mate went to where I was sure we would get the bigest and best sample the school restroom I was in full gear mask gown gloves all took it back to lab to let it grow. some of the other lab students did things like put the desk smears on them spit or just let it set open in the room. after 3 days we jumped at the chance to see who had the biggest and best I just knew mine would be there , after opening the doors to see the on with spit and the open setting for just air won my lab test and not grown much of anything. but it still did not change my OCD I past it on to my daughter but she got help.

wow, if those legs weren't so tan and skinny, I would've had to say that was me at the dorms in college!

I get mad at people who hover....They get pee everywhere! All over the seat, the floor....everywhere! Way grosser than just other people's butt meat on the seat...I mean really...the dirty part is in the open hole! :rolleyes:

Ditto, you couldn't pay me to sit on a public seat and hubby will ask, if we are out, if a certain place is OK to pee - Wedny's are OUT, forever. Don't even mention Wal-Mart or K-mart unless I am totally completly dieing!!!

I too have passed this on to my kids - they have a hard time even pottying at school. Strangely enough, my step-daughter, who has to wash her hands every 5 minutes and keeps anti-germ stuff in the car, in her purse, and in her locker has no problem sitting on a public toilet but won't use a blue room to save her soul. We have chatted and I think she is better but not positive--she won't even pee in the woods (her mom won't let her when we are camping/hiking). EEEWWWW.

What legs, the ones on your pencat?

I hate that, too!!! So gross. I mean, I avoid public restrooms, but when you need one, you need one!!

A blue room (or green depending on where you are) is the portable toilet you see at festivals, along the side of the road at construction sites, etc... At Smokey Mountain National Park (green rooms) they had them at trail heads.

Oh, yea, yuck!!

This guy we knew, a country boy out in Owen County (I can tease people for that because we lived there), went in one and had his arm leaning on the arm rest for quite some time before he figured out it was a urinal!! :o

    • 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).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
