(((((Whispery voice))))): Glad you had a good night, Rah-shyellle!

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:. . . .

Maybe an arranged marriage between her & Jeff? I'm sure that's how it's done these days?

Gah, Low-eeee.. . ....! What a crappy few days you've had.. . . . ....... :(:angry: Thinkin' about you. . . . . ... . .

Hope this will work for all of youse.. . . ....

Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement from all of you. You all understand Ataxia and how easily falling can happen. Today was the first day that someone said something to me about my hubby and the bruising. She's the first friend I made here and we've gotten very close. She's worried that I'm in an abusive relationship. It hurt to hear that (and also made me a little angry) when she said t because Clark is not that way. I actually think that I have a worse temper than he does (though it's much better now) and I use to be quite the door slammer. We NEVER spanked our son when he was growing up and Souperman and I rarely fight. As I mentioned before we've been married 19 years and together 22. I'm 58 years old and would never stay with anyone who ever raised a hand to me.

AAAARGG - I ned to find out my vitamin deficiencies , get new glasses (a wrong prescription could be causing the falls during the day as well as ataxia) and perhaps see a neurologist. I'm a mess.

Need to be psilly again!!!!! Don't want to be suspended from this thread. I start a painting class on Wednesday so I know that will provide some pfunny stories!!!!!

P.S. Also battling BC/BS and Magellan to get $420 in reimbursement from April through August. Ready to cal BBB or Consumer Affairs. Spent 20 minutes on phone (after holding for 20 minutes) and got cut off when they transferred me.

I woke up pheeling like my broomstick gave me some splinters :ph34r: I don't know exactly why and I'm sure that the tequila had nuthing to do with it.... :ph34r:

:huh:

:lol: :lol:

Ummmm, I realize it's 4pm here, but please stop shouting, I didn't get home till 330am and I'm not sure I was completely sober when I woke up :blink: We still have 1 more party to go to in a half hour. I will not be eating or drinking anything other than water! Twas a phabulous night though! :D

Did you go to the parties with BE (I hope)?

BTW, I'll be offline for about two days stating Wednesday night. I have two girlfriends visiting me from NJ (I know I mentioned it previously). I hope to take them to Mystic Seaport in Connecticut on Thursday and then show them my town (lots of quaint stores ) on Friday. They arrive late Wednesday night (sweet hubby driving me to train station a half hour away because lately my night vision isn't great - I definitely have to get eyes checked). They are catching a 5PM train home on Friday. I'm really excited about seeing them! As I also mentioned in a recent post I went to grad school with them (we did all of our group projects and studying together) and I'm old enough to be thier mother! Anxious to get their input on my tutoring the third grader with dyslexia. I want to make sure I help her and not do any harm.

The day has flown by and I still need to shower (I can thank BC/BS for eating up so much of my day - I think I'll either call them tomorrow or next week. I've been winding up in tears by the end of my calls to them. The owe me $420! I swear they try to wear you down so you give up on trying to get the money back. I won't do that and will take whatever measures I have to in order to get it rectified..

Talk to you later!

LOVE IT!!!!!!

Take a look at this. :)

A couple of pros came to our club last weekend and taught us this exact routine. We're gonna do the same thing sometime here in Indy :D

Don't know if you saw the first episode of Oprah's first show of her last season. The Black Eyed Peas performed Tonight's Gonna be a Good Night and there was a flash dance mob. I don't always like Oprah but I LOVE the Black Eyed Peas!!!!! Here's the link.

That looks SO cool (of course I'd worry about falling right now). I use to LOVE dancing. Hubby hates it. Only danced one dance at our wedding (he's a little shy like Klark). When are you going to try it? Hopefully they'll be a youtube of it so we can see!!!

OK, Now I'm REALY going to get my lazy butt into the shower!

She is seventeen... . .... . ....just got her drivers' license.. ...... . :unsure:... ..no boyfriend yet. It would seem that she is too busy with school work, her part-time job and competitive hockey to even notice guys yet. When I was seventeen, my priorities were, in the following order:

1. My boyfriend

2. Other guys

3. My two best girlfriends (old-fashioned BFF's, I'm told)

4. The party on Saturday night

5. School (if there was a test coming, otherwise, not even on the list). . . . ..... .

Gad, how in hell did I graduate, then make it through university?? Standards must have been considerably lower, then. . .. ... .. :rolleyes:

She sounds perfect for J. He would think the hockey thing was cool. Long-distance, they couldn't get into too much trouble. :rolleyes:

Can you image, we could be in-laws! :P

Loey- You've been having a hard time. hang in there- it will get better!

I'm choosing to ignore this! Do not want to get into the Thanksgiving/Xmas mess! Have been liking my peaceful life. :(

I try to ignore it every year, but it sneaks up on me, anyway <_<

......still trying to find my peaceful life :unsure:

That looks SO cool (of course I'd worry about falling right now). I use to LOVE dancing. Hubby hates it. Only danced one dance at our wedding (he's a little shy like Klark). When are you going to try it? Hopefully they'll be a youtube of it so we can see!!!

They want to get in a few more practices to make sure everyone has it down, but the club only meets twice a month.

I just found out some dancers I know went to Chicago to do it. Biggest one, yet. :jealousphace:

    • After doing some research, apparently there is a connection between Celiac Disease and sex drive. Here are just a couple of links I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnGq_Vz6TuE   http://www.naturalnews.com/037361_sex_bread_gluten.html
    • This article, and the comments below, may be helpful: https://www.celiac.com/articles/21721/1/How-Celiacs-can-Deal-with-Accidental-Gluten-Ingestion/Page1.html
    • Long ignored and dismissed as unscientific and crude, are intestinal worms destined to be the future of autoimmune disease treatments? Hookworms. Intestinal parasites. They sound gross. The thought of having one's gut infected with a parasitic worm generally makes people's skin crawl. Indeed, intestinal worms, like hookworm, have a bad reputation among health experts, and have been the subject of fierce public health campaigns seeking their eradication. However, researchers have also documented the gut healing abilities of parasites like hookworm. View the full article
    • well, we're in sort of similar positions but can l ask what made you go gluten-free 3 years ago?   You've kept the diet for quite some time so where the health problems serious? at the time was seeking testing not an option? For myself, l absolutely tried everything to gain weight after losing January 2017. By April/May l started wondering how on earth l could be eating : regular meals, Boost shakes, fast food and sodas and candy all day, pretty much daily and still be losing. Some of these meals at home were pasta packed which, at the time l really thought goulash and cans of chef Boyardeee would help me gain     And years of headaches, brain fog that l didnt know what to attribute to but never suspected celiac until the weight loss, and legs and feet that hurt constantly (l didnt really know this could be due to gluten but it relived after being gluten free).   l am only about 2 months in, l did take a really basic TTG ia test after getting a response that my GI would test ''at some point'' and not being clear when that was, and very tired of being 97 pounds and scared of losing more!   so l now also have to wait to be tested more extensively, but l have gained some weight  and gave noticed some changes.    Did you have any improvements after going gluten free? If the test l did take had just been a clear ''no'', l dont  know how motivated l would have been to do this. It wasn't a clear yes, either, but designed like a drug or pregnancy test so the weak red line  does signify at least some sensitivity.   Typically the longer you wait, if in fact you are sensitive or even have celiac disease, the harder the challenge may be so l can understand the anxiety. l am planning for about 6 months. l could not handle going back on a gluten containing diet with my current job as well, and especially not during holiday retail season!   l would start very slowly. Is your new job going to be stressful? You might want to get a feel for the environment first and how you're going to deal with it on days when you might be feeling like utter crap >.> A headache that feels like a band around the back of my head and eye pressure was something l dealt with on my bad days before being gluten-free. It's not easy to function and when l did, l wasnt a nice person or very efficient.   You can start slowly, and please font be too concerned about fitting all of your challenge into six weeks, IMO. l wouldnt think of it as just a short term binge. Yes, you want to get it over with, but if you really fall apart and dont think you can even consume gluten daily, maybe try to do what you are able to do and if the time period gets stretched to 8 weeks or maybe more don't panic.   it should be difficult at first and even a shock to your system, but  even though you will likely not feel well the entire time you're challenging to retest, maybe by a few weeks in the symptoms will be slightly less severe and you can find ways to ease them. Any meds that you have taken like nsaids, a steroid, even Flonase helped me but l really dislike the side effects.   If the process in general with doctors and asking about this also gives you anxiety l would really recommend the walkinlabs recommended here. After 6-8 weeks, order (around 300 so plan for it financially). That will be your answer, make sure you have truly waited enough time to be properly tested and order the most extensive tests.    It's not something you want to have to repeat but l know l am not looking forward to it either! You will have your answer though, which, even if negative will be satisfying.
