Just got home from dinner. No words. Just good. I'd be smiling if I had the energy. Gotta study, and my instructor from Math 308 agreed to tutor me in calculus so another smile goes here. And I think I got invited for thanksgiving dinner, so I'll have to figure out what kind of face that gets. I didn't accept. Have to think about it. Daughter makes dinner for the whole family so I'd meet everyone at once, including the ex. Definitely have to think about it.

Have an amazing morning y'all. or whatever time o' day it is. :wub:

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.

:blink:

Wow.. . . . Low-eeee.. . .. ....that is rather spooky, fitting in well with all this other Hallowe'en talk. 'Tis funny, cadaver gums being surgically inserted would bother me considerably more than having a cadaver heart or kidney installed....wonder why. I suppose because it's....like, in yer mouth. . . . ... . ... .:unsure:

Jack your Lantern?

:lol:

Um.. .. perhaps Jerk-o-lantern . ... . . . . . . . ...

I need a vacation :wacko:

Crap, Leeeesargh, do you ever. :( Loved the video.. . . and I would love to watch you in one of these impromptu dances. .. .

Have to think about it. Daughter makes dinner for the whole family so I'd meet everyone at once, including the ex. Definitely have to think about it.

Go, Jyessss! And talk about us. Constantly. <_<:lol:

I was going to say go for it until the ex part came up. But it might be amicable. It's definitely a sign that you're special to him for him to invite you. RELATIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!

Had a great time at the Bates Haunted Motel. It was small so it only took about 20 minutes. Superman jumped and yelled a few times (me too). At one point someone got sawed in half and guts fell out (he was obviously in a box). They let 4 people in at a time and we were in with a young girl and her father. She got really scared. The Penitentiary was definitely better last year but it was great to get out of the house.

Then we came home and "did the deed, jumped the broomstick, or had our gluten-free cake and ate it too." The last time was the night our son left for college (August 28th) and it was WAAAAAAY too long ago. Won't let that happen again.

After that we watched "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown."

Yes, cadaver gums creeped me out at first but as I said the alternative was extremely painful.

Clark wants me to come to bed so I'll be back tomorrow.

Happy Halloweeeeeen to all tomorrow and to all a good night! ARRRR - dressing up as a modified pirate for when I answer the door.

HAPPY ALL HALLOWS' EVE, PSILLIES!

jack1a3_KWFLR9.gif

Back at you all my dear psillies!!!!!!

You are not going to believe this (or perhaps you are). I was putting the last part of my costume on and slipped off my chair smack onto the side of the face I had hurt. Hubby is going out for crazy glue to fix my glasses (only pair I have that covers the bruise - need a new pair as I had scratched d a god pair when I fell in Point Judith (before I knew about Ataxia) and I don't want to use my good pair because I'll be screwed if I had anything happens to them. So I'll have to get a new pair of backup glasses as soon as I pay off my credit card next month. I use progressive bifocals that also turn into sunglasses and they're VERY expensive. I KNOW I should go to the ER but I don't have a headache and I also don't want to miss the trick or treaters. I promise to go tomorrow!!!! I am just so sick of this and really angry at myself. i guess it's better that it's the same side.I also see an EAP counsellor (they deal with transitions from moving, unemployment, illness, etc) through my husband's company and I get 8 free sessions. My old therapist from home told me to be careful about what I tell her because she works for my husband's company not for me and there is no patient confidentiality until I begin sessions with my new therapist (not EAP) in 6 weeks. Do you know anything about this? I canceled last week's appointment and told her my son gave me a cold. My husband is the sweetest, kindest man and I don't want anything to go into his records.Thanks for all of the support. Right now I'm managing to multitask and put ice on it while I type. Also, the last fall made it hard to read and this one hasn't affected my vision. I think the glasses breaking saved me some trauma.

Lo, what is the purpose of this counselor? Is it someone to help you write resumes and get a job? When we moved, I had to see one because hub's company would pay 1 months salary if I was actively looking for work. If it's for career counseling but there is no money benefit, you could decline nicely, saying you are going to be a stay home wife for a while.

If this is a psych counselor, they do have to maintAin confidentiality. However, the fact that you are seeing one will be known. Also, anything they have to divulge to get paid.

If you want to message me & give me more specifics, I might be able to help you figure it out. Hub works for large company in human resources and I haven't worked in years, but one of my responsibilities dealt with medical information laws.

Wow... . . . . a good friend of DD's is working at getting a portfolio together for applying into visual arts at university. She has been working on facial portraits, and asked Sophie to pose for her.

Well .. . . ......the stills are awesome. When I look at them I do not, for a second, recognise her - - this is the little, mischievious urchin that has toddled through this house, sat on my lap, crawled into bed with me at midnight, a little frightened ball. ........ . .

Do they really have to grow up?. . . . . . . ... . :(.. . . . . . . ..:wub:. . . .

    • When you're looking for answers the negative endoscopy may seem like bad news in a funny way, it did for me when the doctor told me, but really as CL said it's good.  Keep working with your doctors.  From what you've said before gluten could still be the problem.  Now you've eliminated celiac you can try removing it from your diet, but it's important that you do it safely. You don't want to cause a problem while trying to fix one. Most people get a lot of B vitamins in particular from gluten foods. So if you make a change to your diet do it with your mom, ideally involve your doctor or a dietician and keep a diary of your symptoms too, sometimes called a food journal. You may still have found your answer, don't panic and don't lose heart. Best of luck Matt 
    • BoliviaB, DH rash can occur in Celiac's who reindtroduce wheat/gluten after a break from gluten. However I want to go/see that the parasite route has also been exhausted. The fever's (for most Celiac's anyway) are not typically but low grade inflammation is. I had annual bronchitis issues and ear aches that went away after stopping gluten. You did not say if your were a native Bolivian or not but if you are you  probably know about Chagas disease carried by the Kissing Bug. A blood test will confirm that the Chagas parasite's were killed with your AB's round. Though many AB's rounds can be as long as 2 months . . . not just two weeks for complete control. I wonder if you have Chagas (possibly) and it is causing you colon problems.  GI problems can be a sign of advanced Chagas complications. If you are having your blood drawn again it should be (re)checked. In the US (since it is not endemic) as it is in Bolivia people typically find out if they have it (Chagas) by giving blood. Chagas is considered a Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) in the US but in Bolivia it should be ruled out as a possible cause of your fever(s) and GI problems. https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/disease.html quoting "a dilated esophagus or colon, leading to difficulties with eating or passing stool" can be a sign of chagas. if you hadn't mentioned parasites in your regimen I might not of mentioned it.  And in the UK if they didn't know your country of origin or your home country they might not of think to ask about it since it is a Neglected Tropical Disease and therefore had no reason to suspect Chagas to test your blood for it. I was only aware of it because it has begun to show up in Texas and CNN run an article about it a couple of years ago. http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/24/health/kissing-bugs-chagas-disease/index.html  If you have an outdoor dog --- dog's can also contract Chagase disease from the bite of the Kissing Bug much like in the US dog's can get heart worm from a mosquito bite. The CDC (the US health agency) says most people are assymptomatic but GI problems can be a severe sign of undiagnosed Chagas in about 30% of the population. quoting again "In people who have suppressed immune systems (for example, due to AIDS or chemotherapy), Chagas disease can reactivate with parasites found in the circulating blood. This occurrence can potentially cause severe disease." . . (NCGS and/or undiagnosed Celiac Disease (my words) could certaintly complicate someone's response to the Chagas parasite). This might be higher in Bolivia. . . and probably is since Chagas is endemic to Bolivia. The good news a blood test can help you find out if undidangosed Celiac or undiagnosed Chagas is causing your problems or if it is a complicated mix of the two. **** this is not medical advice but it explains your fevers' better than Celiac (usuallY) but the rash defiantly could be a DH reaction to gluten. I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God, ETA: Here is the FAQ link from the CDC on Blood Screening for Chagas disease in the US.  https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/chagas/gen_info/screening.html Again I hope this helpful.    
    • Thank you for posting. Your honesty and openness is refreshing. My son is five years old and experiences the same as you, to include hallucinations, insomnia and stereotypies to name a few. His symptoms are all neuro psychological. Have you looked into trying a mild blood pressure med to control the accidental glutening? We were prescribed clonodine. It's not something to take all the time, just if you need to take the anxiety and insomnia levels down. I have only given it to my son during one episode and the first time I gave it to him he said, "finally!" and then fell asleep. He had been suffering from insomnia, anxiety, intrusive and dark thoughts for days. He needed the sleep. (Side note:  a lot of meds are made with lactose so you should always ask for dairy free and of course gluten free when filling a prescription). So my son responds very negatively to the following foods which are considered by some to be cross reactive to gluten.  Rye Barley Spelt Wheat Oats  Buckwheat Sorghum Millet Amaranth Quinoa Corn Rice Potato Hemp Teff Soy Milk (Alpha-Casein, Beta-Casein, Casomorphin, Butyrophilin, Whey Protein and whole milk) Chocolate Yeast Coffee (instant, latte, espresso, imported) Sesame Tapioca (a.k.a. cassava or yucca) Eggs   Our best bet has been to only eat fresh fruits, vegetables, grass fed meat and gluten free nuts. I highly recommend trying an AIP diet.  After a glutening I may give him one or two methylated B12 supplements. Have read studies involving the use of B9 in psychiatric disorders, but haven't tried it. Let me know if you want to chat or have any questions. I've been dealing with this for about two years now. We can probably learn from each other.    P.s. Just discovered recently that he reacts the same way to coconut as he would to gluten. Eliminated and now we're normal again. If you start feeling like you can't climb out of it then look very closely at your diet. Food logs are easier to make if you're eating very limited whole foods. You can slowly add things back. 
    • I am 33 and just diagnosed with celiac in July 2017. I am gluten free but still suffering from costocondritis and stomach acid issues. I am also dealing with some neurological things like pins and needles in my left shoulder blade that come and go. No deficiancies right now that we know of othwr than vitamin D which I have a prescription for. My symptoms were not bothersome until right after my first child and then everything fell apart. 
    • That is good news!  No celiac disease!   I would follow your doctor’s advice.  Consider adding in more veggies and fruit into your diet.  You can trial a gluten-free diet now that testing is over.  That might help.   Did they rule anything else out?  I would encourage you to obtain all your lab results and medical records.  It is a very good thing to maintain!
