Had a dream the other night that I was at a party. For some reason I thought the cake was gluten-free - might have thought it was for my b-day cake. Ate a piece, yum. Got a second piece and ate 1 bite and found it wasn't gluten-free! Woke me up, mad!

I had a dream like that once--I bit into a sandwich on a roll and didn't realize it was wheat until I swallowed it. It actually woke me up. It was so odd--like the whole thing happened in slow motion.

Thank goodness I normally don't remember my dreams....

Met hubby 'cos I was dating his brother ph34r.gifwink.gif

Me grandmudder eloped wif me grandfodder whilst she was engaged to another guy . . . :o I, of course, didn't hear of this juicy tidbit till shortly before she passed away so I was unable to hound her for details . . . apparently it was a big family secret such that no one would ever say who she was engaged to.

I met me hubby through a mutual friend . . . but we didn't hit it off until I impressed him be being such a good sport. On a big camping/water skiing trip, someone was trying to break a piece of wood in two for the fire by swinging it as hard as they could against a tree. The piece that broke off hit me in the face . . . I don't actually remember getting hit or the few minutes following it . . . Had double black eyes that were almost swollen shut. I didn't leave even though the option was offered and just wore sunglasses the rest of the trip even at night. Probably should have gone to the hospital but didn't. You may not know this, but alcohol was involved.

I met Mark whilst on a date wif another guy.....

I thought my first (deceased) husband couldn't stand me. He was assigned to train me at my job as a videotape editor at a TV Network. Turned out he was shy and had a crush on me. He asked for a ride home one night when we worked the 7-3 shift and we started dating right away. wub.gif

Wouldn't have met my current hubby wub.gifwub.gifwub.gif if I hadn't married my first. First husband's passing away was the reason for the alarm system (plus I never would have lived where I did if I wasn't with first hubby -it was midway between the Lincoln Tunnel and the GW Bridge and not a family oriented town). I always lived in communities with close knit families prior to that.

Going to the Haunted Motel tonight. Will tell you about it tomorrow. Plan on walking verrry slowly and NOT falling. Bruise a little better but still need to use my gluten-free make-up to cover it up. Witch Hazel seems to be helping the bruise a bit. Have errands to do today before going tonight.

Loey biggrin.gif

Bottom of face still looks like a zombie stick figure!

Nik- also hope you're pfeeling better. I had to have 4 surgeries to replace receding gum lines (they used cadaver gums - boy did that ever give Clark a lot of material to freak me out). I chose to use the cadaver gums because I had heard the skin grafting hurt worse than the procedure. Anyway- sending you healing hugs!!!

Loey

P.S. problems with teeth and gums are yet another problem caused by Celiac that I wasn't aware of before this forum!!!!!

Back from the Gluten Free Lalapalooza! Stuffed with free samples! Had to stop eating all the cookie, cake, muffin, opie, etc samples. Fortunately there were bread, pizza. BBQ sauce, Fried chicken, onion rings,chili soups, Bards beer, Woodchuck Hard cider, and Quesidilla samples to cut the sweet. :o

I have been reading along and loving all your stories of how you met hubbies! So funny! Jess- BE sounds like he's worth the risk. I am happy for you :wub: :wub:

I knew my hubbie since I was 16 (he was 13. His older brother Neil was one of my best friends. I cahperoned his high school band ski trip :ph34r: When I was 21-22 I dated Neil and thought Kurt was SO annoying- especially after he trapped me in a car for a 5 hour drive where all we listened to was Phish. The first known pic of the two of us is me (pretending) pouring Cascade on his spaghetti after that drive.

Then he dated my best friend and when she broke up with him, I gave a her a hard time and she said, "Why don't YOU date him?" I was like- EWWWW! No way!

Fast forward 2 years and 2 different coasts and I arrive in San Francisco, walk into his apartment and realized he was the guy I was supposed to marry. :wub:

Going to the Haunted Motel tonight.

Loey

Hi Loey- We haven't met yet. I've been reading along and wanted to say hello! I'm Beverly (Bev) and getting Bev'd means you got forgotten about :lol: :lol: <_<:(

A haunted Hotel? Can I come? I'd be so scared but totally intrigued. I'm all talk, no action.

Happy Halloween weekend all (eat more chocolate!). Love to all, B

Hello Dear Karraaaaang,

Where was it? As I'm sill slowly reintroducing food into my diet it probably would have been frustrating for me to be at a gluten-free Lalapalooza so I'm living through you vicariously. Time to shower, spend 20 minutes covering the bruises (a little better every day) before doing errands and haunted motel date with hubby, and let's not forget laundry.

Loey

P.S. Still plan on "rectifying" tonight. I think I need to find a word that's more Halloweenish. Also hope he stays awake. The stress of his new job and getting up early makes him tired really early. Perhaps immediately after the haunted house!!!!!!!!

Was at the National Celiac Sprue (hate that word) Association Conference in Kansas City.

Instead of rectifying:

Unwrap the mummy

Ride the broomstick

Soothe the ghost

Share your candy

Rattle some bones ( or a bone :ph34r:)

Trick or Treat? Both are good choices!

Witch Hazel works really well for bruises.

Giving you extra plusses because it is really helping (though I have a looooong way to go). Finally emailed my girlfriends who are visiting to tell them about it (they're use to my "klutziness" - before I knew about Ataxia) but I doubt it will be gone by Wednesday when they arrive. I'm so excited to have someone from my old home visiting!!!

Nice to meet you, too Bev!. I love this forum and particularly this thread!!!

I'm looking forward to the Haunted Motel. The story was that in the 1600's two ships crashed into each other and no one survived. The captain of one of the ships lives in the Shady Motel (called the Bates Haunted Motel). As I mentioned a few days ago on this thread we went to the Night of Terror at the Philadelphia Penitentiary last year and it was pretty creepy. I was talking back to the goblins after a while and even grabbed one of their hands (I'm somewhat ballsy). Most of them were in cells but a lot weren't. I would be surprised if tonight was as scary.

The only thing I'm not looking forward to is covering my bruised face. My girlfriend suggest I use Halloween make-up and duplicate it on the other side but that's not gluten-free. I also think it would look funny at Walmart.

Then I plan on treating Superman right (or rectifying as Jess put it)!!!! That's if we can stay awake.

Loey wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

    • So here's my adderall report.... I take it in the am, after my other melds and coffee. It's the XR version so it lasts all day for me, but the most helpful part is the first 4 hours. It takes a little while to kick in, and then I notice a calming effect. I'm usually very anxious so this is nice. I notice I'm more positive, and feel actually pretty happy, although I've got some major things pressing down on me I feel like I can think about them straight and get them taken care of, instead of panicking. I'm not starving all the time like I usually am. I felt hungry since I started taking my thyroid med and am worried I started gaining a bit of weight due to eating more. Now I don't feel like I need to eat between meals. I'm back to making every bite count towards nutrition. I've been better at taking care of more adult type duties. I'm happy to say that it's been a very good experience so far and I don't feel like I'm taking so much that I get a high from it. A decade or more ago I took double the dose I'm at now and I can tell you I was feeling that super happy high when it first kicked in, and although it felt great, it scared me as that is so on the path to some major addiction issues, you know? I can tell you that the current dose makes me feel like I did in my 20's, and I was pretty kick a$$ then, lol!
    • Thanks, I'll look into these. This is what I'd seen re: lanolin in d3.  http://www.livestrong.com/article/414363-difference-between-vitamin-d-from-fish-oil-lanolin/
    • Found this article about a 11 year old with celiac who was forced to eat outside after being told he could not bring and eat his own "Safe" food into Shields Tavern. Biggest point was the social impact it had on the kid and the way it was handled. I think this will bring up a new perspective and in the end perhaps open more restaurants to understanding that some of us have to bring own food to a gathering for our own safety and that ousting us for it is actual discrimination with legal implications. I personally bring my own food when I eat out, I tip big for it if they are understanding and normally order a 1 ingredient side to simplify it with the least chance of contamination. This is something many of us do to meet a compromise and interact in a social environment, and feel normal. While it really depends on person to person and how sensitive/comfortable you are eating out, heading out to accompany and eat with family, friends, and coworkers should be a option, even if we have to bring our own food as a compromise. http://wydaily.com/2017/07/20/family-of-disabled-11-year-old-sues-colonial-williamsburg-for-discrimination-nws/ On a side note remember not every chain and store are the same, always talk to a manager, or call ahead before bringing in your own food, or eating out with special requirements, dietary restrictions, or extreme food allergies/intolerance.
    • Lanolin to my knowledge is used in skin based applications only, if your needing D3 the best way is to get a sublingual in a dropper you can use there are many available. I personally use Liquid Health and just add it to a drink once or twice a week. https://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-95099-liquid-health-vitamin-d3-drops-1000-iu-2-03-oz BTW while your looking Liquid Health also makes a Stress & Energy Supplement, and a Neurological one I swear by. They have many other liquid based formulas if you wish to avoid pills (I already take a bunch anyway for other health issues)
    • Which D3 supplements aren't made from lanolin?   I had skin inflammation in the past from topical lanolin. I'm not sure if processed ingested lanolin in D3 should concern me, but thought I'd consider a  non lanolin version.
