I was sitting near a guy who is clearly a dim sum aficianado so I asked if one particular bun was bread or rice. He said "oh, you don't eat gluten?" and proceeded to pick out all the rice based treats for me, and ask for two of everything, one without sauce. He even grabbed stuff and handed it to me first, and when he was combining plates for more room, he didn't mix the rice food with the breaded food.

And my biggest concern of the moment - red? or white? with peanut butter?

:o

:o

Do not know his relationship status, but he plays on the gay men's soccer team, so I don't think I'm his type.

Did not get a chance to ask him how he knew.....

this lady apparentlty smells quite strange and has a lisp,

Don't laugh. I, too have a slight lisp.

Tis true. People assure me it's quite "cute" but I tend to disagree.

Ummm . . . :unsure: . . . me too . . . you just can't tell over the internet . . . :lol:

Love that typing cancels lisping--unless typos count :unsure:

Missed this phirst time 'shroomy!!!

'Leucodendrons' eh??

Do we have these in Blighty???? :unsure:

Sounds like an atomic particle or summat equally scientific :rolleyes:

Oh help ME!!!!!

SAVE me from 'made for tv films on in the afternoon'.......... amgetttingsuckedinmustnotwatch..................

Nikk, you are just so darn cute ! Did you fire me today???

:lol:

I don't know what it means Suze, but it sure makes me giggle.

I had an equally bizarre dream last night about Olympia Dukakis (sp?)

She showed up at my Drs appointment :blink:

OMG, Joooools!!!

(SO fan-farking -tastic to see you here :wub::wub: ) But THIS IS HILARIOUS and ASTONISHING. .. . .......

I ALSO had a dream about Olympia Dukakis, two night ago. . . ... . .

:huh:

:blink:

Honest to gawd. . . . ... :unsure: . . . . ......she was in the hospital with my dad, in his room chatting with him about the television and movie industry. .. . .....not certain if she was a patient, or nurse, or had been cast in a hospital drama and was playing her role . . . .....

I thought briefly about it yesterday morning, then forgot about it until I read yer post. . . ....

:blink::blink:

Now WHAT IN HELL DOES THAT MEAN???????

You know, I had a weird dream about do ca-ca's in Olympia, too :blink:

Actually, I didn't. But I did gt a call from my doctor today. They scared me, said they needed me to call back regarding my test results that they wanted to discuss. Considering I just had a pap and they found cysts, you know what I was thinking, right?

Well, no worries. But apparrently my vitamin-d is low. WIH is going on?

What is this, the cold shoulder? :huh: How come everybody's reading and I'm the only one squiggling? :unsure:

I have decided my tiger/orange butter dream (I was slathering this balm into his large, wonderful paws - what does it mean??? ) has to do with:

I can just see the regal Ms. Dukakis posting llama links to get a larph round here.

Tiger balm :lol:

I'm tired and grouchy, but I did want to share my fab dim sum experience.

A previous lab member was visiting from the east coast so a bunch of us went out for dim sum. I was sitting near a guy who is clearly a dim sum aficianado so I asked if one particular bun was bread or rice. He said "oh, you don't eat gluten?" and proceeded to pick out all the rice based treats for me, and ask for two of everything, one without sauce. He even grabbed stuff and handed it to me first, and when he was combining plates for more room, he didn't mix the rice food with the breaded food.

It was the most incredible lunch.

And my biggest concern of the moment - red? or white? with peanut butter?

Sounds divine, and dem sum!

WoW! Peter, that is SO cool. That Flash Forward sounds right up my alley. Looking forward to it!

Has anyone else planted vegetable gardens this year? My dad and I collaborated and did a big one. We've got two kinds of bell peppers, zucchini, cantaloupe, green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins, and even CORN. :blink: Yeah, we kinda went nuts. The boys have been helping, too. It's been fun, but something has been nibbling on the green bean plants. :angry:

How is everyone???

    • Don't go gluten free until you find out if they want you to get an endoscopy which they should schedule. Eat gluten every single day until the endoscopy is done. 
    • Hi Johno,  fellow brit here. Crappy uk medical experience is par for the course unfortunately where this is concerned, so don't expect too much help from that sphere. Although with a positive diagnosis you should be eligible for dietician advice and monitoring of nutrient levels.  First, 4 month in is still early days. If you have cracked the diet and are not suffering cross contamination (v easily done) then you still have at least 2 and maybe 8 months of healing to come. So it's little early yet to be thinking that your celiac isn't responding to he diet.  1. Sleep issues. You don't mention what these are, but yes, celiac is definitely linked to sleep disorders. In fact it's linked with just about everything due to the way it impacts the body. Almost all systems can be affected. You may also find if the sleep issues are neurological in origin that they will be the last to go on the diet. I find neuro symptoms are the first symptom and last to go. Note also that although Gastrointestinal is commonly percieved as the major celiac presenting symptom, this isn't the case. So your not alone in not having major tummy issues.  It's not caused by mentality but it sure as hell affects it.  2. How long have you got? I tested negative so I'm in the ncgs category and some won't even accept that my condition exists. Even understanding of celiac is still developing. Research is ongoing as is levels of incidence. It's up 4 times since the 1950s so something is going on, better testing is perhaps revealing more. you have positive diagnosis, so you have good evidence to keep you strict on the diet. Eat as well as you can. Try to keep gluten free processed foods to  minimum  and eat fresh whole foods where possible. Treat this first 6 months as a one off healing period and help your body as much as possible. Take some good quality supplements, regardless of what the tests are saying. B complex, magnesium and a multivitamin are a good safety net if nothing else.  Read the newbie thread on this site and double check your kitchen etc for possible cross contamination sources. Could be seasoning, shared butter etc. You need to develop a sense of vigilance about this whilst staying on the right side of paranoia! finally, a warm welcome to a good site  
    • A freshly baked roll is as delightful as a soft, fluffy cloud on a summer's day. What gives bread much of its appealing texture is gluten, a group of proteins found in wheat, rye and barley. But in people with a serious autoimmune disorder called celiac disease, gluten damages the small intestine. View the full article
    • This disease is like a chameleon and seems to change symptoms on people and everyone is a bit different, heck some have no symptoms til it almost kills them with secondary issues like cancer, lymphoma, rupturing the intestines etc.
      I did not have ht classic D but constipation, I also had a bunch of other signs that I had grown into and considered normal. My big thing was neurological side of it. I had gluten ataxia where it attacked my brain and nervous system compounded by b vitamin deficiency, I had learned about the magnesium deficiency months earlier and was supplementing for that part of it. Anyway my health was getting bad, tired, random gut pains, brain looping on the same thought over and over driving me mad, bouts of anger and rage. I was running a bucket list before they got it diagnosed.
      Wish it was done earlier my immune system developed other issues like corn allergies, bunch of intolerance then years later learned I had also developed Ulcerative Colitis.

      There are some mental aspects to it, one part is the effects of vitamin deficiency like the b-vitamins, can be very detrimental to you mental health. Various others have cumulative effects or require others nutrients to work right. SO you have to find your balance and supplement til you heal, or sometimes for life. 

      There is also odd fight or flight responses I have noticed from me and others, your body starts to associate gluten and certain foods with discomfort, once off them starting to smell them or thing they might have contaminated your food brings out a panic like fight or flight as you subconsciously attribute that smell, thought, food, etc. with pain and discomfort.

      This disease is really not well understood, contradicitve....hell it is the only disease where you have to poison yourself to the point of causing major damage for them to learn you have it.....like "Here eat this poison so we can see if it makes you sick, but you have to be really sick for us to know it is this poison that makes you sick as it only effects some people"
    • I just quoted a little part but really much of your experiences could be mine. I won't bore you with it all, but chest pains came from 19, herniated disk came at 21, followed by 20 years of sciatic back pain. Depression at or about the same time. Brain fog little later. There was lots more, primarily neurological. Internally I expected to die in my 30s or maybe reach 40.  Nothing shifted any of it until I changed my diet and inadvertently reduced my gluten consumption. I went back on gluten for testing, confident I'd found my cause only to test negative. I did keep a diary however and that helped me and my consultant decide that gluten was off the menu for life.  Couple of things which may be helpful. There is more than one blood test. You may find that one of the others works for you. I never got them all and wonder sometimes if I would have tested positive on another one. You can post your results here if you would like some help in interpreting them. you mentions feeling relief when you ate less gluten. Are you sure you were eating it up to the test? Removing it may have altered the results. Finally, once testing is complete, go properly gluten free even if you tested negative on scope and blood. For some people, they test negative but still react. That could be you and give how closely some of my symptoms match to yours it may be the case. best of luck, you will find this site full of support and useful info. You are not alone in this. matt
