-3 tide today. The pirate and I walked squelched around the bay and he pointed out all the boats at anchor that were now stuck in the mud. Very pretty day for the northwest in May. :)

About 10 yards from my kitchen window lies a would-be grassy knoll, with a couple of large decorative rocks and some shrubby shrubs capped by a pine tree intended to disguise the next condo building. Between me and the knoll lies a paved walkway along which a gent in red baseball cap and blue shorts over which protrudes a prodigious paunch parades every day. And not just once a day. And he always has a pooch in tow. The pooch proceeds onto pooch poop park where he drops his little parcel (retrieved by the paunch in a plastic bag) and off they go. Only to return - same paunch, different pooch, same poop park, a loaf is pitched and plastic retrieved, and so it continues. This paunch is apparently a pooch poop parader, his post-employment occupation. :lol:

Well, I don't know if this is funny or sad...

But I finally found a few bras that fit. And I went down a band size (almost two) and up two -three cup sizes to figure it out.

And I now know I have huge boobs (F cup). No wonder D's weren't working...

Now, all I had to do was say "F cup" to hubs and I magically got better looking. And even funnier - the right bras make me look slimmer and clothes fit better - sometimes giving me more room in a shirt. Other times - it looks obscene (but hubs finds it infinitely entertaining).

So I have bigger boobs that fit clothes better, and a tickled pink hubby with an F-G cup wife (and he didn't have to pay a plastic surgeon).

But I do have a pile of ill- fitting bras to return by mail since you can't find F-G cup bras around us. Grr.

Bra shopping sucks!! I like Lane Bryant, they tend to have larger cup sizes (and lower prices than Nordstrom's).

Their stuff doesn't work for me, unfortunately. It doesn't have enough support and the sizes are wrong. So far Freya and Dominique work for me. Fantasie SHOULD work but the problem is getting the right size on the right style and since stores dont stock them i have to guess and order. Aaack!!! Found a Panache bathing suit top-that's another adventure - bathing suit tops!!' must have a built in sized bra and am mailing back TWO today.

I still don't know of this is funny or sad.

My opinion on lingerie is funny. And I use funny words to describe the adventure, but in the end I just want vodka.

Well, I was confused for a while - couldn't figure out how I went from a C to a D and it still wouldn't work....til I hit the F's and G's....

Actually, they used to be C's til my son "gave me a boob job". It was called pregnancy....:).

C to an F/G. That usually requires surgery.

And the FUNNY part was the look on my face. I don't think they have a clean emoticon for THAT.

Well, I think this claim really calls for pictures to substaniate it. Then us males types can judge for ourselves objectively and see if we agree with the claim. But pictures are definitely a must. Lots of pictures up close in fact. Color of course. At least 8x10 glossies. Maybe a signature would be nice too.

Do we need to send you a camera and some film? B)

    • Update: for most accurate results, I am eating one piece of white wheat bread a day and am hating the symptoms. Less than two weeks until the endoscopy so I'm hanging in there.
    • Gaerty, I am glad to hear that you've ruled out the worst stuff. That at least helps clear any anxiety or worry you might have. I know that would clear up mine. I have good news! About three days ago my splinter hemorrhages cleared up 100%! The one that was on my right thumb was long and was there for about 2 to 3 months. I started taking this Vitamin C supplement 1000 mg once a day about 3 weeks ago. Whats crazy is that on the day I started the Vitamin C I noticed a small hemorrhage cropping up on my left thumb. It was very small. By day 7 of taking the vitamin C the one on the left thumb started growing out. By the second week I noticed the one on the right thumb shrunk drastically and by the end of week 3 they were all gone. By day 10 I also started taking 25mg of iron because all my muscles keep twitching. My B's and Magnesium came back good 5 months ago. I heard low iron can cause that symptom as well. So thought I'd give it a try.  I am not sure if it was a combo of the C and Iron or just the C that helped clear the splinter hemorrhages but for sure it was one of those things because they are the only things I have changed recently with supplements in the past 30 days.  
    • The nasal spray is safe, per the 2017 gluten-free drug list, but check the list as there are a few different manufacturers.   http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/newlist.htm Claritin is fine.   Get a Nedi pot.  Helps tremendously.  It is safe.....100% gluten free.  Just use pre-boiled and the cooled water.  
    • Thanks Ravenswood. I need the strength and encouragement to keep going. The last sessions fall out was 4 days of my body revolting on a nervous system level.  I'll look into your acupressure book suggestion. I have done sinus acupressure for myself and my daughter for years but did not explore more.  In the past when gluten-free my fibromyalgia symptoms improved but since they come back the concern is it might be actual fibromyalgia.  After 2016 I found out I have Barrett s esophagus, fibromyalgia, additional food intolerance plus the gluten. I had in my head I was ncgs and it was all related to  that and leaky gut that occurred after my challenge., So I wasn't prepared to digest all the above. Pun intended. Thanks for the encouragement Awol
    • So I'll try to keep this short and sweet.  I'm a 25yo male and have had GI issues for about 7 years. Through many years and many doctors visits, I've gotten potential diagnoses of IBS, post-infectious IBS (d/t a Giardia infection in 2014), small intestine bacterial overgrowth, GERD, and even a strong suspicion of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis). I've had two colonoscopies (no biopsies taken) and one EGD (biopsies only taken of STOMACH which showed chronic gastritis, not small intestine). Pretty much all of my tests have come back "normal."  I'll start by saying that back in 2014ish my blood results for Celiac were negative. My GI symptoms vary and fluctuate greatly... When I'm really struggling, I'll have chronic diarrhea, debilitating reflux, hours of burping after eating anything, epigastric and lower right quadrant abdominal pain, severe fatigue (nearly passing out), migraines, awful brain fog / depression, unilateral eye pain and photophobia, mouth ulcers, glossitis (tongue inflammation), and occasional bloody mucus in my stool if I'm extremely flared.   So my GP recommended I try a gluten-free diet after my IBD panel came back as negative. I reluctantly gave it a shot. I was gluten-free for about 2 months - slowly but surely, my chronic diarrhea relented, fatigue lifted, and my reflux nearly disappeared (to the point of considering stopping my omeprazole). Since eating gluten-free is so difficult, I decided to try a 3-day gluten challenge to see if gluten truly was the culprit. I ate gluten products 2-3 times/day for 3 days. It made my reflux a bit worse and gave me some pain, but nothing severe. My tongue however started progressively burning/stinging that week.  The BAD symptoms came about 2 weeks after my first gluten exposure... My acid reflux became MUCH MUCH worse, despite medication. I lost about 7 pounds over 3 weeks from not wanting to eat. I had much more abdominal pain. My tongue became very inflamed and sensitive to eating/drinking. I got mouth ulcers. I became very depressed, irritable, and brain-fogged out of NOWHERE. I was nauseous and having headaches. It was NOT fun. That's when I thought, "Ok, I am definitely more sensitive to gluten than I thought." That was about 6 weeks ago and my stomach is still feeling the effects of those 3 days. So, my questions: Has anyone experienced a similar story? Has anyone had lower GI bleeding with celiac? For those who have Celiac, are your symptoms typically delayed like that (2-3 weeks)? I know NCGS is supposed to have much more immediate symptom-onset. Has anyone tested negative to blood work, but positive on small intestine biopsies?
