Keepin' me outta the wine... . . ...all I can say is, the raincheck better be soon.... :rolleyes::ph34r:

Since the big forum re-vamp, I have found the pages on here taking a VERY long time to load..... .. . .and it ain't my computer, as other sites I can zip through. Anyone else finding this?

I also notice that threads on the topics page can be labelled "HOT". Interestingly, Psillyville is always HOT, it seems. But then, that's no surprise....jus' lookit the regular contributors.....

Mine takes longer to load too, Em. I use Firefox, tried Chrome but that didn't help.

Just voted--didn't take long--only one lady ahead of me. Mark went before work, and had a short wait.

We voted by mail. You can also vote for several weeks a head of time at many locations. Love it! Friend said she dropped a kid at high school about 8 and then voted. 45 minutes.

I am predicting "to close to call" to night, and a long drawn out post election battle. Have been predicting that for months now. Time to test my prediction i guess. ;)

Diane Sawyer just said on The View that it could take 10 days or so.

Only if Ohio is an issue, right? If one person wins enough e-votes without needing another state or two, then provisional/mail in/reissue etc ballots are less important.

My prediciton?

I predict I'm gonna have to put the down comforter on the bed tonight. Seems that the weather is finally getting cold. It's been in the high fifties here. Haven't turned the heat on in more than a week.

What's it matter? We're going to have a Zombie Apocalypse in December anyway. :lol:

Better stock up on gluten-free provisions. I don't think Zombies like to eat gluten free brains!

I've had the comforter on the past 2 weeks. Our bedroom is over the garage--coldest room in the house even with the heat on.

I put the heated mattress pad on Sunday when I changed the sheets but I haven't turned it on. I still have my summer bedpread on, although I have an extra blankie across my feet. The other night I had the pirate on one side and the cats on the other. Was so warm I had to fling all the covers (and cats) off.

I only have to share with Tyler and Mark but that lil' kitty takes up as much room as a small person the way he sprawls out. I wake up contorted between the two of them. :rolleyes:

Yep . . . I agree. Just got back . . . no line as I predicted even though I was a bit early. Now I've got an "I Voted" sticker . . . where do I go for the free stuff?

I'm sure the pirate appreciated not being flung with the kittehs.

Yesterday Ohio Gov Kasich was practically already apologizing for how long it'll take them to count it up, what w/ all the new voter suppression attempts expected to result in record #s of provisional ballots.

Rock the Vote, stubborn, committed attempted-suppressees!!

(I'm leaning towards "supressee" actually being an actual word, btw)

Maybe we can get extra lucky & not have to care about Ohio's electoral votes. What can I say - I'm a dreamer. :wacko:

Can't remember who said it and it takes so freakin' long for the pages to reload . . . but whoever said that the forum is slower than preupdate needs to report it in the "bugs" thread in the technical forum. You'll see there are plenty of people already saying that . . . just need to add to the list.

I do want to point out that the "bugs" in THAT thread have nothing to do with Shadow's bugs in THIS thread . . . hopefully.

    • http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamadermatology/fullarticle/423327 Found this article that suggests a link between PD and the Mthfr genes (which are also associated with Celiac Disease).    Taking methyl forms of B9 (methylfolate) and B12 (methylcobalamine), and B6 (P5P), makes these vitamins more usable to people with the Mthfr genes.   Celiac Disease causes malabsorption.  Celiacs on a gluten free diet may develop deficiencies.  (Gluten free breads and cookies are not required to be fortified with vitamins like their gluten containing counterparts.)   Perhaps adding these vitamins would be beneficial. Hope this helps.
    • I'm not sure that this is the original study I looked at, but it does describe the different antibodies found circulating in the blood that is specific to DH (anti-eTG, which is analogous to anti-tTG in regular celiac disease). At any rate, it seems that they can test for it, but many labs do not have the ability to do so or doctors do not know to ask for this lab test. So I suppose if one was very interested in a diagnosis, one could go to a research centre where they would likely have the ability to test for its presence! https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4435051/
    • Welcome.  You might consider staying on gluten and seeing your doctor for a celiac blood test panel.  You need to be consuming gluten for several  weeks prior to the blood draw otherwise the tests can be invalid.   You could have celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity.   The only way to know for sure is to get tested as there are over 200 symptoms attributed to celiac disease and those can overlap with other illnesses.   Best to rule out celiac disease.  Learn more:  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Celiac disease symptoms are like a chameleon -- always changing.    
    • Yes, you can get diagnosed with biopsies prior to having a celiac (antibodies) blood panel.  That what they did BEFORE the blood test was invented.   Thyroid issues are common with many who have celiac disease.  It was prudent that your doctor ordered these tests.   The lipase test is linked to the pancreas.  Again, a poor result can be attributed to celiac disease.  
    • So where oh where to begin. I read all and everyone's post because as a community I think it's extra special when people have others they can vent to that understand how each other are feeling. Ok enough with the gushy stuff. Down to business. I have been gluten free for almost 9 months October 4 (im counting)  the relief I have felt is diarhea is gone. Another good positive symptom and sign is I'm 5'7 so at diagnosis I withered away to about 108 (very sickly all muscle was gone) I now I got weighed in at 122 today! And I'm literally eating whole foods some extra food maybe some chips here and there but I've always been a chip person. I haven't weighed 122 since I was 18 (Im 29) so that part had me excited. Except for the last few weeks my fatigue has come back with a vengeance. I don't know where it's coming from, i got my thyroid (just tsh until I see endo at end of month when she will check all thyroid hormones) and it was at 3.45 I'm not on thyroid hormone so I wonder if this is causing my fatigue and fast weight gain since I started gaining weight pretty fast (even though I needed it, it happened all at once over a month) I'm also having severe hair loss. I had my iron checked and it's all went up except my ferritin which was at 15 last week's blood test. My symptoms consist mainly of hair loss, shortness of breath, dizziness especially from sitting to standing, really bad raynauds attacks everyday all day (on feet) neck pain (severe) now new symptom started about 4 months ago the back of my shoulder bone to the elbow and clavicle bone are all hurting so so bad. I don't expect anyone to know what's wrong with me I just felt like venting. Also I was prescribed neomycin and xifaxin because a hydrogen breath test showed high methane in my test but normal level hydrogen so the actual SIBO test was negative but she was confused about the high methane and said I may benefit from the antibiotics. I still am waiting to get them from my insurance. I'm a seronegative celiac with positive biopsy. We've already gone through and rules out other scenarios for the villous blunting and IEL's. Any info would help me. I feel so weak some days. And all doctors want to say it's anxiety. I've heard that for far too long I actually went to a hematologist today because I've been freaked out the last year my wbc have been at 3.3 which my lab range is 4.5 and above to whatever the higher limit is. He told me to do a bone marrow biopsy because of the pain in my shoulder and arm and my "low wbc "which he wasn't even concerned about. Is this necessary right now or am I just spooking myself. Is it common to have low wbc. Could it be the extra methane in my breath or whatever. Any help would be great. Listen I have friends and family but they won't listen to all this. They think most of this is in my head.
