I wrote a reply and hit the wrong key then POOF it disappeared into cyberspace. Anway, you should be extremely proud. My 20 year old has been taking Martial Art since he was 6. At times he wanted to drop out but we changed schools (Princeton Academy of Martial Arts). His Sifu trained under Bruce Lee and Dan Isanto came at least twice a year. I don't want to make this about my son - I want to focus on Tim. Sending applause to him. What a great accomplishment. KUDOS!!!!

Love, Loey

P.S. how old is Tim?

P.S. to yesterday. Dermatologist said it was a staph infection. It got into my blood stream, hence my breast lesions. I'm on Septra DS and Murpirocin. If it doesn't clear up when I see the doc in 2 wks I'll have to have it surgically removed. Thinking positive. IT WILL HEAL!!!!!!!! Time for me to go to my oncologist and then off to do errands (it's amazing how much I enjoy doing my errands again).

Love,

Loey

Timothy is 8, he will be 9 by the time (this November) he tests for his full Black Belt. My wife and I are taking class with him, so we all will be testing in November. Should be fun! They also just invited him to join the CIT program (Certified Instructor Training)!

This started as a way to treat his ADHD, and now had grown into a family sport. :lol:

Congratulations to Timothy!!

Change Timothy to Smackl (that's what I call my son on-line). Change Karate to Tae Kwon Do. Change a couple of the dates/ages and you've got my son . . . including the ADHD and the instructor training program.

I love it!!! Smackl was never destined for a team sport and this program has been perfect for him.

Congrats to you adults as well . . . that is something I couldn't do . . . really bad knees here.

Hiya Loey, good to hear from you and glad to hear you are out and about.

My son's friend's mom: " How are you? I know you haven't been well lately" Me: "Getting better, thanks. Found out I was full blown Celiac, so no more gluten for me. It's been really hard to get used to." "Really!? Because I went totally gluten free to get 'bikini ready' for our trip and it's SOOO easy!" Blank stare. (in my head: "Assholes wear bikinis??") Sigh. Celiac makes me cranky.

Hah, had to post this one to prove you are so right. And hot ones too!

I hope this balloon pic doesn't offend. If it does feel free to remove picture. My sister in New Mexico sent me this today. Said it was from the Albuqurque Baloon Festival

Yes they do!

Heh, we used to call him Tymber online.. but got dropped along the way. Between homeschooling, and Karate so far we have been able to work on teaching him to cope with his ADHD without drugs. I am not against medication when it is needed (heck, I have done the ADHD meds myself) but if we can training him to cope with out drugs, he will be much better off. Then he can harness the benefits of ADHD (drugs remove them to a degree) and overall be healthier. :)

And if not, at least he now knows how to properly kick someone in the face. Always a useful skill! :lol:

So my son is having symptoms again (we suspect some candy he got at a party...but anyways) and we are talking about what to do to with him. He wanted to stay home and do something he enjoys because he has a stomach ache. So my wife says to him "you can't stop living just because of a stomach ache.."

I think most adults would understand what she meant, meaning you cant let Celiac stop you from enjoying life, but not Timothy.. he was like "No, I don't want to die!" :blink::blink:

:lol: :lol:

English really is a messed up language!

Tired. The pirate is living here this week. His exhaust sprung a leak and he rebuilt it from parts from Home Depot. Just waiting on the heat tape.

While here, he's cut up most of my scrap wood and is burning it in the Weber with no legs.

Burn ban here . . . guess you don't get too many of those.

Ice cream is OK though :rolleyes: no ban on that . . . although there probably should be for me.

He's an eat-anything kind of guy, although he eats mainly gluten-free with me. He's also 6'2", so he made the "gluten shelf" on top of the cabinets where I couldn't possibly get into his stuff. :rolleyes:

The boat motor is inboard, so the exhaust is wrapped in heat tape to minimize the heat escape into the cabin. He had to tear apart the bed to get at it, and his mattress is in the walkway.

It was fun watching him and the plumber helper lady at HD. They sat on the floor putting together pieces of pipe to try to make something the same size and shape as his exhaust riser, which was one piece of custom bent pipe. The repair has 3 90 degree joint thingies and several pieces of pipe of varying lengths. He had to get one piece custom welded, but we found a guy with the right type of welder (tig welder, if that makes sense to anyone) in his garage. The welder guy also managed to save a flange that's being reused. Total repairs - less than $100, buying the custom piece from the boat manufacturer - ~$400, plus three weeks minimum to wait for them to custom build it.

We is thrifty. Next weekend we're volunteering at a bluegrass festival so's we can get in free. :rolleyes:

Jestman,

I'd so be there for the festival if you lived near Bainbridge GA vs. DC. Our RV (We call it 4 Sheets to the Wind, it's a 4 Winds) is a 1992 model and we're not good at engineering like your houseguest. B)

    • Cross reactivity is a bit of a myth type thing, but we do get food sensitivities and intolerance issues that do creep up and they are always different for each person. A food diary and keeping track of what causes symptoms is what you need to do. Here is a true gluten avoidance list and a article on food sensitivities.

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
