Hey TomTom! Keep brushing away that brain fog -- eventually it will stay gone. :)

Next upcoming saga: The house sitter stole some of the Pirate's mail and took my truck joyriding. I tried to give him an out and let him blame it on a friend but he kept insisting he knew nothing about a missing package....until the officer showed up at his job and informed him that he'd left the packaging at my house...

He, and one or more of his parents are coming over tonight to return the bulbs and learn that "joyriding" in WA state is a felony. Should be an interesting evening.

light bulbs. led bulbs from China. Yes, dim bulb sums it up. His dad is disgusted and can't even talk to him. Not looking forward to lunch with his mom on Friday. She's one of my good friends, and I see this entirely as the kid's (24, not really a kid) problem. But I imagine that a parent would feel a lot of negative things in this situation.

I would be mortified if my kid did that at 16 or 36. I guess I would feel like I didn't teach him like I should.

J doesn't really have a summer job, so if you want to sail the 7 seas all summer.....he always liked the chickens at the petting zoo & The neighborhood Evil Kitty always liked him better than his own family. He could build an elevator for the chickies or build a robot to feed the kitties in his spare time. Maybe re- paint your truck?

Good to know. Maybe he could build a self closing door to the coop that's keyed to the amount of sunlight.

Either that or he could train Seuss, the rooster, to tap a button and shut the door when all the girls are inside.

Well.

Jess's saga ends with sunshine, chatting up the locals, a nice hot bath, and a 24 year old delinquent. Boy, unemployment doesn't sound too bad! (minus the delinquent)

Good to have Thoughmus,BunBun, and Rayshell back in the fold ^_^ Now all we need is Soozle. I hear she's been peeking in unnoticed. :rolleyes:

Soooo.....who here has today ever found a bullet in their bedroom with a hole in their wall and picture frame?

Bullet in yer bedroom?!?! MOOOOOVE!!

Wells, veg has known the caveman her entire life. Turns out, after 34 years they have a few things in common-other than their diets.... He has helped her understand that it's ok, and good, to be happy in her life. That she IS a good mom and a good person. And that she's not a dead fish..... That's as far as I'm going on that one... Lmao!! She goes fishing, 4wheeling in the woods, sleeps on a float house with NO indoor plumbing, sleeps in a cabin in the woods with no running water, propane lights, and NOOOOO INDOOR PLUMBING!! She snowboards and snowmobiles, she goes on freakin ROAD TRIPS-she thought she HATED road trips!!! She also loves his family (and grew up with them too. Caveman Sr. saved her life from drowning when she was 2). But most importantly, she smiles and laughs like a giggly little girl. And she's happy :)

Well there's a no contact order for the guy who stole my car awhile back, but I doubt he'd be THAT stupid :unsure:

I'm not known for pissing people off, but I come across quite a few juvenile delinquents working at a middle school <_<

Most likely a result of horseplay......I hope

This is all good :D She is living life and she is happy. We told you all those things too, you know :o - well, not the part about the dead fish - not enough information on that one :rolleyes:

Awwwwww.........that's awesome! Except.......

The only thing I hate more than being COLD is NO indoor plumbing! (picked up on that real quick, I did :P )

....and road trips depend on the driver and/or the company. Can't stand hubby's driving, so road trips are out for me too.

I'm getting the impresion that NO INDOOR PLUMBING is doable with the right company also :lol:

So glad the veg and the caveman are so compatible ;)

Well, she used to be called a dead fish. She is no longer called a dead fish..... :lol: :lol:

She doesn't mind the peeing in a bucket thing. Thought she would. But when the company is amazing and you gotta go... You gotta go!! And she's never ever worried about being cold!! ;)

It can be done -- this is exactly what old Mr. Guthrie has been trained to do at my mom's retirement residence.

My kid is a little delinquent. Not sure how much is him being a 6yo boy and how much of it is the divorce. He took a bark chip and wrote "ass" on the gym door a few times. He makes the worst choices and doesn't think AT ALL about the consequences. I don't know what to do. Therapist? Prison? I've taken away everything in his life except food and bathroom privilages and added more homework of my choosing...

Tell him if he's going to be vandalizing other people's property he'd better have nice writing and make him practice letters for a couple hours a day?

Have an extremely detailed discussion about body parts and tell him he needs to understand what he's writing? That next time you expect to see all the muscles and a picture of the structure?

    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.  
    • Ebetta posted this 6 years ago ... not sure she/he will respond
    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.
