Hi everybody!!! It feels like forever since I've visited here. Or maybe I just dreamed you all when I had need of you the most. Dunno. Not a lot of silly in me these days...so far proving to be a really nasty year. Seems I've fallen into this truly unpsilly place and I can't get up. I've lost patience with everything (as I like to say....my camel is sipping on it's last straw), and am not liking myself very much these days. I know it'll pass, that I'll stop this pity party and being a blatbaby one of these days, soon. Sorry to be such a wet blanket here.

I'm hoping that you are all well and doing jest fine. I think I'll browse a bit through the psilliness here. Maybe I'll find mine wandering amongst yours.

Hi T :D Nice to see you here--I was just popping on to see what's new. I know it's been such a difficult year for you and it's good to recognize that--and that's not a pity party ;)

Seems kinda quiet as of late, though.... :unsure:

Great park, Great swimming area, Great weather, Great family! I just layed out on the beach for a few hours and relaxed!!! Annnnnnnd, I got a Cricut Cake decorator machine, which I'm soooooo excited to try out! My fav's though, were an incredibly beautiful tissue paper cherry blossom tree and homemade stationary--I'm a bit of a stationary whore :P -So I will have to use this very thoughtfully, maybe special letters to the kids from special times in their lives :wub:

Weather here is sucking up the place. Glad you had nice weather for the lake. Did they use the 40% Michaels coupon for the fancy cake machine?

That was hilarious! :lol:

I saw as much of SNL that I could stay awake for. Betty was great! Loved the part about Facebook being a waste of time! :P

Of course you can't use the coupons on anything Cricut <_< I will search craigslist for cartridges, the Expressions cartridges work for the cake machine too!

Rah-shyellle, I AM THERE. B):wub:

WooHoo!! I'll see what I can do....I still have her on my DVR, does that count?? :P

shouldn't they be called "un"sweat socks (or have I been reading too much Amelia Bedelia?). Seems to me you don't want sweaty boobies- or feet ;) I'm confused though

, if yer losing boob-weight, why are yer bras too small??

Jacquie came in with me this morning for a half-shift at the store. Just four hours, but it is a start. It will probably be a week or more before she can return full time. She's still not able to drive or lift.

I was just thinking about her & wondering how she was doing. Great to hear! Is she enjoying the relaxing or getting bored? To me a pet supply store would be a great place to work.

    • I highly recommend being tested for celiac disease before you go off gluten, if you haven't already done so.
    • Hi.  I'm new to this!  Please help me get started. I want to try..I mean DO...a gluten free life so that, hopefully, my health issues will go away. So, please help me.
    • Hello. I apologize for this being long but I feel I should explain the situation so you better understand where I'm coming from. I am here because I do not have the time or money to be galavanting around to different doctors offices. I spent time doing that already, lost money out of my pay from not working but never found A SINGLE ANSWER.  I am a 23 year old female and back when I was about 13-14 I was diagnosed with Mononucleosis. Prior to this, I had been having other issues, or at least the minor problems I had previously considered as 'growing pains' since that's what my primary at the time attributed my pains to. Well now i'm 23 and it's only gone downhill since then. Back then I was told by a GI doctor who had done two or three EDG's and two colonoscopies that I have "the enzymes for crohn's and need to be careful." No other explanation other than eat 'gluten free'..... Now, this was kind of when it was the new 'health fad' for people, so being so young my logic was 'I'm young, I should be able to do what I want and eat what I want without worry!" so that's what i continued to do, despite feeling overall unwell. (I had really always felt unwell so it wasn't really that big of a deal for me)  Now that i'm older, i've literally experience an entire swath of issues. The only reason I am here is because I am now thinking back to that conversation with the GI Doctor that maybe she was right. While I do have insurance, I honestly don't really have the money to be shelling out for these tests all over again as I was lucky the first time around when my grandparents had taken me since I was underage.  My symptoms over the years and continuing have been: (in full, some may have nothing to do with the another)
      Lower back problems, feeling like sciatica but never confirmed. X-rays, MRIs, etc show nothing despite the intense pain. Drs now refuse to do more tests for 'nothing'. So I am left to handle feeling like an elephant is sitting on my lower back, right above my tailbone. (I did fall on that around 12 or 13 but doc never called back after testing, assumed i was fine...)
      Stomach cramping/spasm feelings
      On and off nausesa, any time of day.
      Inability to sleep. 
      Constant changes from hot to cold. (Original doctor has said over the years my temperature seems to run higher than normal. I almost always feel feverish even if only slightly.)
      Headaches/migraines
      Fatigue
      Lightheadedness at times
      Restless legs (DRIVES. ME. INSANE. The muscle relaxers i've been given just made it 1000000x worse! I was so sleepy but couldn't fall asleep due to the restlessness.)
      On and off diarrhea / constipation (I don't know what a 'normal' bowel movement is)
      Costochondritis that has come and gone since I was in 4th grade. (I remember the day because it was April Fools day and everybody thought I was faking the serious pain I was in. I could barely breathe, it felt like my tendons/muscles were being torn apart on the inside) .  I believe this is what my original DR thought was 'growing pains', except they never stopped even after I was finished growing..
      I used to get sick very easily - for about two years it seemed to clear up then i started getting infections non-stop.
      There are some .... embarrassing things... Such as despite how many times I clean myself I feel like i'm.... leaking.......... 
      Sharp/ache like pains everywhere in my body.
      There are likely many other things that I'm just so used to I'm not listing because I'm not sure if they're even related.



      I am just so tired of feeling like dog crap. I've never felt 100%, ever. For as long as I can remember i've always had issues but I come from a family that kind of just.... deals with their problems and not complain 24/7. After years of that, I need help. I am absolutely fed up not being able to do things because I just feel generally crappy. It's seriously depressing and making my depression and anxiety worse. Is testing for a second time worth it? If it is, what tests should I really be focusing on to figure out if this is my problem?
    • Thanks for the responses raven and cyclinglady!  I guess we just have to wait.  Is it wrong that I want there to be no question that its celiac?  She has had so many symptoms for awhile now--seemingly increasing--but I want there to be no question in her mind that she needs to be gluten-free--you know? For now we are working on eating gluten-free but I haven't really tackled the whole cross-contamination thing yet and looking into my freezer, fridge and pantry I have a decent amount of gluten that the rest of us will eat.  Then I guess I'll decide how gluten-free the rest of us should be. On a side note--the gi ran a bunch of tests prior to the biopsy--I haven't seen the results--but they mentioned over the phone that her white blood cells were high--maybe due to celiac?
