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)

    • Thank you for your help. I have had a few colonoscopy procedures done before and the bowel preparation started working near enough immediately. This time it made me feel awful and took a long time to work its way through. Can Celiac cause constipation as well as the opposite as my bowel habits have changed a lot and prior to the bowel preparation some hard stools caused bleeding. I also was wondering is it still possible for the TTG-IGA to be positive but the EMA not? My appointment to see the specialist isn't until 24th April so feel like I have such a huge wait and so worried about still being none the wiser or any chance of getting back to normality again as I am underweight as well.  Thank you for all your help and support and do hope I am not a nuisance on here. 
    • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT! I used to watch anime all the time and one day my brain just gave up on me! It was so hard to get through the day not being able to do the things I love the most. When I first started to have problems it started to affect my gaming too. I have such great dexterity and suddenly my fine motor skills had gone to crap. More recently I even felt dizzy trying to type my password onto my Iphone and typing. It was god awful.
    • It's forgot how long it's been since I've been glutened, but I think it's been about a week. Most of my problems are in my right eye. They're really dry too. I went to the doctor in January to get a b12 shot and my symptoms disappeared for a couple of days, including the dry eyes. Did you ever get this really uncomfortable symptom when you turned your head in front of a lamp? Like a light shining through the surface of your eye and blinding you a bit? I hate it. I think I have a bit of nightblindness too. Most of the digestive symptoms dissappear quick. Loss of appetite, bloating, feeling full after eating a little bit, especially anything that's mostly bread, like french toast. The b12 sublinguals helped with most everything so that's why I associated it with pernicious anemia. After I started to get chest pain, I knew that it was somehow the sublingual tablets, but I didn't think it was because they had wheat in them. But yes, most of my constipation is gone, and I don't get weird stools anymore. Way back in November I would get these really dry bowel movements that were solid and looked strange, and they would fall apart when they hit the bowl. (TMI I know but this is a celiac forum) When I get glutened, I start to lose feeling in my left arm/leg and my abdomen gets hard and uncomfortable. This happened a couple weeks ago when I accidentally ate these packaged "chow mein" noodles that contained wheat, and more recently when I went out to eat at a Japanese restaurant. That was on saturday so it's coming up on a week since I've been glutened and I'm starting to feel better. One other thing I noticed is that I start to get these creases on the side of my gums. I'm not sure if they're from my teeth but they start to slowly fade away when I don't eat gluten. There's also a whole list of other symptoms I could describe like my feet turning red in the shower, these tan lines on my legs that haven't gone away since september, pale nail beds both on my feet and hands, and sinus pressure that won't let me breathe through my nose correctly. I'm not sure if I've lost any hair, but way back in the summer, some of my friends joked around about how I was "bald" and I figured it might have been because I wear a hat all the time (I'm only 20 years old) but I'll just leave it at that for now.
    • Thank you to both of you! I will try to play around with those things!
    • Hi Len, you could also look at getting some DPP-IV or DPP-4.  DPP-4 is an enzyme reputed to break down gluten to some extent anyway.  Of course, the testing was done in a lab and not a person.  And it wasn't a complete and perfect thing because you have to know the correct amount of enzyme to add to the gluten portion to break it down.  At least DPP-4 is available at reasonable prices.  I use it if  I think I might have gotten a gluten cross contamination issue, or any digestion problem really.  It's definitely not going to let you eat a gluten food without symptoms and damage though.  It might slightly reduce the symptoms a little.  But a little bit of help is better than nothing.  DPP-4 won't stop the immune reaction from occurring.  Nothing we know of now would do that except and outright cure for celiac disease.  Or not eating gluten, which is a lot more doable at the moment.
