I'm an old lady now and most of these guys would be just chillens', I'm thinking :lol:

plus I have to take all my own food, AND I'm not camping there overnight so - a drive home late at night, which means little to no wine with the boys around the campfire. :lol:

decisions, decisions.

I am happy with who I am and want only to be the person my daughter believes me to be :)

Thank goodness I don't have that to live up to; hard enough being the person I believes me to be :huh:

We've run into a huge snag wif the house we're planning to have built :angry:

And, pray tell, when has there evah been a house built that hasn't run into humongous snags?? Coulda told you NOT TO DO THIS (if you had only asked). Talk about major aggravations and marriage breakupstressors--this has to rank right up there, maybe at the top. Two years from now you will look back and laff (if yer lucky). Of course you will probably also have a very nice house (I am sure you will take special care with air conditioning and mold reductionhumidity control :D

Daggone right! I used to be a people-pleasin' doormat.

Now that sounds about as true as a moon made out of cheese.

Suppose I'd have to be the one gagging and barphing from the sidelines to get their attention

Somehow or other that never quite made it onto my list of attention-getting devices :lol: Very cute video though. That barphin' cat was one of mine, I'm sure. She was an expert! Didna know they took lessons in kitteh school.

Well, I thinks I has avoided the dreadful H place with the IV line :) , because my cellulitis has bowed to the onslaught of double doses of flucoxacillin (and so has me stomach , I might add) Take on an empty stomach :huh: :huh: indeed.

Roll on June, because they are predicting more snow within sight of our house today; t'is becoming a very early wintah. And cold!!! Have to go bake some yeast-free bread because Dh has concluded his sinus problems are related to candida and is going on anti-candida foods. He's eaten up all my pineapple already. :( Don't know what that has to do with it, but he assures me it is recommended. Have to watch what I say now because I keep finding him reading celiac.com when I'm not looking.

nighty-night, Tea... :wub:

Well OMG, it's 8:30 and look who's already home. :lol:

My boss, I have figured out, always makes things sound WAY more exciting and fabulous than they really are. :huh:

Um......I drove 90 minutes to get up there (no big deal but the last 30 are on a VERY windy, narrow road - paved, thank God) and........we..........sat................around...........and that's it.

:blink:

I didn't even CARE about the stupid firemen.....there were a smattering of cute ones, but I could hardly be bothered (the cute ones were VERY young, in fact nearly ALL were very young, the old ones looked fat and sloppy - I don't think firemen are as hot as they used to be? :huh: it's just the ones in movies and on TV that are hot <_< )

It was VERY hot, humid, and......I got so antsy, crazed with boredom and discomfort (and all the flies) and had to leave. They were quite puzzled as to why I'd only stay - less than six hours? - but I just HAD to get out of there, can't even EXPLAIN it. But my boss was in the cook trailer the entire time (only room for one in there, and HOT AS BLAZES, his comrade was cooking the civkebs on the grill, the boys were sitting around just staring vacantly, and I just

COULD NAE TAKE IT - gahhhhhhhhhhhhh!! :blink:

So driving down the mountain I decided that I just have a really, really low tolerance now - unlike the past - for pain, discomfort, and misery. I want cool cotton sheets, air conditioning, and a shower :lol:

Not to mention good conversation, some yummy g f snacks, decent wine, a lounge chair, and cool breezes when I camp.

Would be nice to have me sills there. Can you imagine? :rolleyes:

very cranky. Off to bed!!!

oh - shroomie!! meant to comment on yer post - where is it??? but very funny, the marriage-wrecking house-building part :o:lol:

Good morning, Psills!

Sooozle's Project Phireman was quite disappointing. .. ...I was hoping for a great, rustic, sublime, Steinbeck-ian tale. .. .....instead it was rather Hemingway-ish. ...

Alighted at the scene. . . . ...served the food, reclined and pondered. Descended the mount.

:rolleyes:

And no DH for Mini-minimom! 'Tis fab. But then, what in hell IS it? :huh:

sat in my folding camp chair, stared at my young miscreant colleagues, swattted flies. Surveyed sweltering kitchen trailer and made my egress.

:huh:

<I don't know which author that would be - it's just Soozle on a tired morning :lol: >

dang!! so quiet in here!!!!!!!!!! :blink:

I awake to one post from em and nuttin' else?

WHERE IS EVERYONE??????

:huh:

gotta go kick Sophie's teacher's ass today. Can't wait. this master teacher is Satan himself.........such a semester she's had. Horrible, miserable, mean-spirited black-souled, sexually harassing, verbally abusive, alcoholic man. It actually made her physically ill, being around him every day - increasingly sick and miserable until she blacked out last week with searing chest pain as she could not describe, and ambulance was called. Did I tell you guys this already?

so - her gallbladder and giant gallstones were removed Friday....she is still in pain with some pyloric ulcer? 'tis EGREGIOUS. :angry:

so - get this - this EEEEEEEEEVILLLLE man (has a vendetta against her due to her WONDERFUL father and requested her as his student teacher <_< ) has now asked that she do lesson plans for the entire rest of the school year (almost a month). Um, the ba$tard's been teaching for 25 years, I'm SURE he doesn't need them. :angry:

So, we're gonig to take in what work she does have (she can nae lift it all) and *I* am going to put my foot down right then and there. *moo hoo ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!*

Should I take the Skull Cracker for extra affect?????

    • My son is 13 and we have been dealing with his unusual issues for years. By 3rd grade, he was The Hulk, breaking things, punching holes in walls and raging. He had depression, anxiety and panic attacks. His skin would have rashes or turn bright red and i didn't understand why (now i know it's salicylic acid added to conditioner, sunscreen, lotion, ect). We realized that dyes were a problem and cut those out. Little by little, we removed sulfur, sulfites, preservatives, salicylates (aspirin-we assume he will be allergic to this but he has never had it and we won't ever test it, most fruits, spices, veggies and honey), nitrates, soy sauce and many more. He lived on an all home made, special diet and he was better but not well. (We did the Feingold and Failsafe Diet but that wasn't enough). He was diagnosed with hypersensitivity to medication by 5th grade (tried anti-anxiety meds-big mistake). Consecutive doses of anything would get stuck in his body and then the real fun started, full body rash, suicidal thoughts, vomiting and my least favorite-hallucinations. He was in the ER for a fall from a tree and they gave ibuprofen and Vicodin. Within 30 minutes the rash spread up and down his whole body (including under the damn cast). The worst night of my life was trying to keep him from breaking his own cast off and talking him down from trying to hurt himself.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             We tested my son for everything and anything, hormones, vitamin deficiency (later found out they don't test for nearly enough to really know) and thyroid. Everything was normal but a mildly low vitamin D level. He was very unhealthy, he was sick a LOT, allergies were bad, asthma and he developed food intolerances out of nowhere. We did a gluten/dairy free diet (because his sister is gluten/dairy free) but it made no difference and his diet was already so restricted. We did a year long food journal and also found an issue with pork, apples, citrus fruit, cinnamon, ect.  I researched my kid like it was my job. We tried many vitamins and supplements and he had bad reactions to many of them. I finally found a man with several of the same gene mutations (we tested with 23andme.com) who's Dr. thought it was a PST-Pathway issue. We decided to try the protocol of vitamins, supplements and amino acids to see if it made any difference and OMG, what a difference. At this point, we didn't have a pediatrician that actually listened so I asked several doctors about the specific vitamin/minerals/amino acids and kept all the does to a child size dose.  We had always used epsom salts as a response to a reaction in something, not as a preventative measure. We now soak his feet twice a day in Epsom salt water (or in the bath), it gives him a form of sulfur that his body was missing and now he can eat anything he wants (except soy sauce but we'll gladly leave that out). He takes molybdenum everyday with magnesium/calcium and vitamin D3 (and when we stop that, panic attacks come back. Weekly he takes milk thistle (we tried L-Glycine but too much gave him terrible insomnia (like 3 days of barely any sleep) and milk thistle works just as well to keep his liver open and working it's best), B vitamins, Cod liver oil capsules with Vitamins A and D and liquid Zinc.  His personality changed on the L-Glycine in a more outgoing way but then in a manic, not himself way so that scared us. Since the supplements started (6 months ago), his anxiety and depression is gone (and it was really controlling how we lived). He would never talk to people before...he was diagnosed with selective mutism but we felt that was incorrect and he was just very shy. He never liked talking with adults. Now, there is no problem, he is not super chatty with everyone but all he adults in our family noticed immediately. He is ready to stop home schooling and start high school next year. He has become a responsible, sweet, calm and caring child. No more daily fights, no more holes in the walls, no more rage. Our daughter has anorexia and we have been very busy dealing with her behaviors and missed the daily vitamins on occasion for several days....old son comes raging back. It doesn't take too long to figure out the mistake and gets him back where he needs to be. We did some genetic testing with a neurologist who specializes in metabolic function and while he tested for some helpful issues relating to hypersensitivity to medication, I still got the impression that he thought it was a placebo effect. We have burned through many therapists, pediatricians, a neuropsychologist, a psychiatrist, a gastroenterologist and possibly this neurologist. I hate not being taken seriously because while they may not agree with my ideas, they have nothing to offer in return.   
    • Yep no fruit, juice, sugar, or grains like oatmeal. The sugars glucose, fructose etc. Are common causes of flares in some. Sugar free fiber like nuts, but butters, cocanibs seem to be great for me. Keto diet sugar free high fat, mostly over cooked to mush or blended works great for me......heck as a baker I had to invent low carb, grain free, starch free bread. Sorta lead to a god like revelation and business took off with diabetics and my bakery.
    • Gastritis was my initial diagnoses before finding out I had celiac. The pains from the gastritis were terrible. I had to wake up in the middle of the night to eat cause I felt nauseous. The Doc prescribed me omeprozole and antacids. I took the meds for about a week but I cured it mostly by not drinking and eliminated caffeine intake. Alcohol was one of the main causes for mine 
    • The UC is a whole different beast. I’ve been eliminating tons of food. Meat is definitely good to me. I can eat all the steak, chicken, and pork without problems. I agree that paleo would be great for me. I’m gonna look more into their recipes.  Have you had any problems with fruits and veggies causing flare ups? I make smoothies with mixed berries, banana, gluten free oatmeal, spinach, and a splash of juice. It seems to be a cause. Maybe it’s the high fiber? I’m not sure. That and caffeine. I’m having a hard time eliminating caffeine though  
    • Pain wise a glutening celiac gets me more central gut pain and much worse with sharpness, urge to vomit, gurgles etc. UC is more along the the outside edges of your abdomen from the sides, lower area around the belt line, and upper area right under the rib cage, and is more of a boat and pleasure pain like your intestines are huge feeling.  UC triggers alot more gas, and makes you want to lie down I get the urge to massage and press on the pressure areas as it seems to help.
      Timing wise Celiac glutening I notice within 20-60mins and main vomiting starts in 1-3hours after eating it. UC flare you get it like 4-18hours or later depending on transit time of your food. A glutening will normally result in both a celiac reaction and a later UC reaction. For me a gluten CC or consumption issue also causes neurological symptoms, this is not true for some people but for me I also have a gluten ataxia, so the anxiety, panic, fog, mind looping, numb hands, loss of coordination or straight up motor loss is definite sign for me. Others will have to keep track with a food diary to nail down there own as every person can have a slightly different reaction.

      I also find with UC I do not directly vomit, Sometimes with UC it can trigger constipation and if not remedied in 12-24 hours leads to m system backing up and vomiting. Celiac can also cause me constipation but there is a slight difference in where it seems to get stuck at first. Hard to explain but you can sort of feel it. Also I find a gluten celiac response will result in a week or more of constipation issues. Starting mid section then moving to the outside gut area and  but some people do not get these and get D instead. So this is not very reliable.

      UC flare ups for me with my damage also always have bloody stools, worse flare ups its not just streaks but clots. Red and Dark red show it is in the large intestines. If you get tar like black  and red it is either a sign it is way back in the large intestine or in the stomach or small intestine. This makes my Anemia SOO much worse. Imagine how you feel with the loss of blood coupled with inability to efficiently absorb nutrients like iron and magnesium

      Thing to recall is UC is mostly the large intestine while celiac is mostly the small, so symptoms and trying to get the feeling of where the problem is can help.  Also if you get a glutening expect to have the UC flare up right after the celiac flare up.

      NOTE it is hard for me to say still, on the exact details and clarity, it has been since june of last year that I had a major gluten consumption issue. UC I get more regular but without the direct comparison in a while my memory is a bit iffy. Just trying to recall those exact pains and feelings from that last time. Also UC seems to wax and wane in and out while almost always being present for months in the background you just feel a bit off in the gut. SO many triggers, I felt that for years I swear til I went to this keto diet and dropped all fruit, sugar, carbs, and grains. Could have been the anemia, but I think it was more of a combination of the inflammation, bleeding, gas, and just being uncomfortable.
