Donnatal is a combination of active ingredients. I was on it for a while for my "irritable bowel" in my early twenties. It has atropine (belladonna), phenobarbital and other ingredients. Like Immodium, it may help ease the symptoms of celiac disease, but does nothing to address the underlying problem.

Thanks Peter. Stopped taking it for now in case it was making me dizzy ad caused some of the falls. Levsinon gave me the runs.

Will be back online tomorrow morning for a bit. Miss my psillies!!!!!!

G'mornin' all. Met wif my new calculus tutor yesterday and he's perfect, as I expected (a grad student who was my instructor for matrix algebra).

Going out w' BE tonight, and we're going to a friend's open house on Sunday, so he'll meet some of my theater friends. Still finding out fun things about him. I invited him to go to see the Picasso exhibit that's touring here and he agreed. I thanked him for doing that, thinking he was indulging me in my silly art tendencies, and he told me that his mom's and artist and he minored in art in school. He then proceeded to tell me about taking his kids to Europe and making them go to all the big museums. :)

It's really nice when the new stuff you learn about people is more than you expected to have in common. :)

I took me a mental health day on Wednesday! Went for a really long walk in the sunshine, cleaned out all of the summer veggies from the garden and took a really long nap! Spent yesterday morning wif my BFF and the afternoon cuddling wif the little one watching movies :wub: Then the evening a nervous wreck watching the older one trying to perfect her front handsprings for an hour waiting for her to break sumphin :huh: Made a yumm-o veggie soup and enjoyed a nice hot cocoa after my run! Twas a very nice 2 day vacation :)

I heard you guys! Thanks for the birfday wishes!

Rachelle- That floating thing look cool. I want to hear more after you do it.

Hope you had a phab-oo day yesterday!! I float tomorrow. Had a panic attack thinking about it last night. Will have to do some pserious deep breathing exercises to get me into that coffin tank!

I invited him to go to see the Picasso exhibit that's touring here and he agreed.

Oooooh! That sounds phabulous! Wonder if it's coming here... I shall check! Maybe I'll bring Max. He's loves art museums for some reason :blink:

When I would "force" the boys to go to art galleries, we would play a game. Count the horses and dogs or all animals they see. When they were a little older (8 & 11) we went to the Hirschorn modern art at the Smithsonian. They complained at the first statue outside. Told them they were to count the naked people in the statues and paintings. How many male & how many female. Had a great time. Found about 90 females and 12 males. Cracked up at how the only way you could tell some were a person was they had boobs. :)

My older son loves that sort of thing (museums). We took the kids to The Smithsonian when they were younger and they really enjoyed it. When we lived nearer to Philadelphia, we liked to go to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Such a huge place, it takes a number of visits to see it all.

Got People's Court on. It's hysterical! A guy hired another to cut down brush and haul off junk. Paid the junk man $2000 up front. The junk man wanted his last $1000 before he finished. The guy wouldn't pay him until he finished. The junk man brought " suitable garbage" back from another job and dumped it on the property.

Hmmm.. . .. .during the last significant visit I made to the National Gallery of Canada, I ended up having to bring a margarine container in with me to collect my urine should I have needed to go. I had started my annual 24-hour urine collection that morning, forgetting I had volunteered to do this school field trip. So, did I throw out the partial collection of urine when I realized where I was going to be all afternoon? No. Decided to live on the wild side -- or the ridiculous side -- and keep going.

Did I collect urine while in the gallery? Yes.

Did security ask me what I was carefully holding as I tried to nonchalantly follow the children out through the atrium doors? Yup.

It was, uh...... . . . .. ....well, quite a field trip... . . . ..I think it was quite something for the two security guards that listened as I told them that my plastic container had urine in it. The funniest part was how I had to tell them whose it was -- mine -- and then it seemed okay. "Oh, so it's your OWN urine. Very good - - carry on......have a nice day".. .. . ..

:lol:

"suitable garbage" :lol: :lol:

Whoa.. . .. ....interesting to know what the criteria is .. . .what the standards are..... . . :lol:

He said it was garbage of a similar sort that he had originally taken off the property! He said that the junk man's code says that if they aren't paid, he can dump up to 3 times the waste they cleared, back onto the cleared property. He has a warrant out for his arrest for illegal dumping!

I'm Baaaack!!! Missed my psilly pfriends!!!! Had a phab time with my girlfriends. Spent a wee bit too much money considering I don't know how much longer UI is lasting and if I'll be able to get disability. I should be able to at this point. What I really want is to get well and get a job!!!! I bought little things for the most part (XMAS gifts and psilly things for my son's mid-term goody bag that I'll bring him tomorrow (a gorilla pfinger puppet in honor of Karennng, a floating eyeball, a sparkle thing that lights up when you turn on a switch, a brown bear eraser/sharpener - brown bear is his college mascot- and of course about 4 pounds of leftover halloween candy). He better share the candy or he'll be a walking zit!!!!

I took my girlfriends to Westerly yesterday (where I live) because the weather was horrible and I wanted them to see Mystic Seaport when it wasn't a cold steady downpour. One of my friends is a newlywed and the other is getting married next October. Evidently her sister was a b!@#$ when she went shopping for dresses with her. We happened to find a wedding shop in downtown Westerly and they were amazing. They spent two hours with us. I think my girlfriend found her gown there (or at least narrowed it down to 2). She might just have to come back up to visit me with her mother. She was beaming and my other friend and I were thrilled that we could help her enjoy the experience. Her fiance is in the National Guard and has already been to Germany and Iraq. We're all praying he won't be shipped out again (or at all) before the wedding. It's hard for her to get too excited because of that. I plan on being well enough to make the trip and Rob said he's come and drive me (he HATES weddings or going to big affairs where he doesn't know anyone).

Today we went to the seaport and walked all day long. A bit hard on my coccyx but I think it was good for me. Seeing them definitely was!!! I dropped them off at the train at about 4:30 and although my hubby says he didn't miss the time we usually spend together I know he really did. I do know he was happy that they came to visit and was a very gracious host.

They also were big help with my getting material from basement to use with the girl I'll be tutoring. That means I can return about $50 worth of books back to Birder's tomorrow.

OK - Multiple replies here:

Rashelle , BE just gets better and better and I couldn't be more thrilled for you! You deserve it!!!!!!!! Dali is one of my favorites (I have two signed and numbered lithographs) and we went to the exhibit in Philly a few years ago. Tony was very nonplussed (he'll learn one of these days). I also love M.C. Escher and SO many others.

Karannng - you're too funny with counting naked people in the paintings. Do you and your children ever discuss it today?

Patti - Philly Museum of Art is where we saw the Dali exhibit. Use to be members when we lived n Jersey.

Elye- you are a real pisser! Did the urine make it out of the museum safely?

Going to make Klark dinner and then watch Ironman with him (we missed Ironman 2 in the theaters so we're watching the first one tonight then we'll watch the second. I have a serious case of the hots for Robert Downey Junior and my son thinks it's gross.

So good to be back! I missed you all!

Was it Levsin? My doc gave me that early on--made me dopey and didn't do a thing for my cramping. Have you tried laying down wif a heating pad?

He gave me that first and it didn't make me dopey but gave me the big D so I stopped taking it. The he gave me Donnatal and i think that was the culprit (It's a mix of belladonna and phenobarbital) because I stopped taking it yesterday and walked around all day yesterday and today with my girlfriends and didn't get dizzy or fall.

    • Hi Michael and welcome The celiac diagnosis process can be a little confusing. Some time ago I tried to put together some info and links that may be of help:    The key point would be to stay on gluten until you and your doctors are satisfied that celiac has been excluded. In your case that may include another test with a more complete panel as CyclingLady says above. If you go gluten free independently during this time you risk invalidating the results and adding to uncertainty. The second suggestion would be that should you succeed in eliminating celiac as a diagnosis then you have nothing to lose from trying the gluten free diet. I tested negative on blood and endoscopy, but removing gluten resolved or greatly improved a whole load of symptoms including anxiety, depression and that feeling of not being right that you outline above.  I say greatly improved because I can still suffer from anxiety or depression, as anyone can, but if I do, they're nowhere near as severe as they were when I was consuming gluten.  In the meantime, one thing you could do is to keep a food journal to see if you can track any relation between what you eat and how you feel. It's good practice for if you later try the gluten free diet and you never know what you may learn.  This is a good site full of friendly help and advice. I hope you get the help you need  
    • “I was coming here before I was diagnosed with celiac disease, but after, it was one of the few places I could go to since they had gluten-free items,” ... View the full article
    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!
