You're farther along then i am. I'm not planning on getting dressed lol.

So, i'm thinking of making that cake thingy today, however i have no toothpicks to check for doneness. Could i use a knife or something like that instead?

butter knife works well. Also check the edges, they should be kinda pulling away from the pan. Middle part should spring back when you touch it lightly.

Too funny - I remember thinking why would someone have a bust as their profile pic when I was a newbie - don't think I ventured into the funny pages back then or maybe I would have got it -- I don't think I've seen the one I vaguely remember, but maybe it was Jestgar's kitty -- keep 'em coming -- thanks for the giggles :)

Hey MindWarp, so what's the deal on the 21 units? Have you taken such high load before?

I don't know if I remember anyone finishing a semester w/ that many. Maybe your system is different, but you did say semesters, not quarters. (Learned long ago to not compare my sems w/ others' qtrs)

Loved my Astronomy classes to the point I almost majored in it.

Has meandering Psillyville's Memory Lane skipped The Snow Poodles? :o

And really . ....doesn't "digital pack rat" describe everyone who's owned a computer? :huh:

(unsure if this is directed at me :blink: )

Eh, i need to take 3 semsesters with 21 credits (7 3 hour classes per week) in order to graduate by the spring of 2014. Generally we're only allowed to take 18. This semester i'm taking 19, so its not that big of a jump.

At any rate, my cake plan is canceled at the moment. I feel a bad cold comming on and i had a coughing fit whilst i was cleaning up the kitchen (had a few things left out, etc)

Ooh a cool double! My anthro course would've been for non-majors, but it was fantastically interesting & a pretty popular course to boot.

I remember smiling at the time when I found I wouldn't have to take History of Western Civ after all, since all I'd ever heard was complaints about it, but in hindsight I know it would've been good for me to take back then.

Funny how confused so much of America is on what a socialist regime actually looks like.

I am in grad school, where 6-9 credits is considered a full load. I do have 3 undergrad degrees and I recall taking 19 credits more then once... but could not imagine that now! Struggle to keep up with 6! Might have something to do with not being a 19 year old bachelor any more...

    • Pain wise a glutening celiac gets me more central gut pain and much worse with sharpness, urge to vomit, gurgles etc. UC is more along the the outside edges of your abdomen from the sides, lower area around the belt line, and upper area right under the rib cage, and is more of a boat and pleasure pain like your intestines are huge feeling.  UC triggers alot more gas, and makes you want to lie down I get the urge to massage and press on the pressure areas as it seems to help.
      Timing wise Celiac glutening I notice within 20-60mins and main vomiting starts in 1-3hours after eating it. UC flare you get it like 4-18hours or later depending on transit time of your food. A glutening will normally result in both a celiac reaction and a later UC reaction. For me a gluten CC or consumption issue also causes neurological symptoms, this is not true for some people but for me I also have a gluten ataxia, so the anxiety, panic, fog, mind looping, numb hands, loss of coordination or straight up motor loss is definite sign for me. Others will have to keep track with a food diary to nail down there own as every person can have a slightly different reaction.

      I also find with UC I do not directly vomit, Sometimes with UC it can trigger constipation and if not remedied in 12-24 hours leads to m system backing up and vomiting. Celiac can also cause me constipation but there is a slight difference in where it seems to get stuck at first. Hard to explain but you can sort of feel it. Also I find a gluten celiac response will result in a week or more of constipation issues. Starting mid section then moving to the outside gut area and  but some people do not get these and get D instead. So this is not very reliable.

      UC flare ups for me with my damage also always have bloody stools, worse flare ups its not just streaks but clots. Red and Dark red show it is in the large intestines. If you get tar like black  and red it is either a sign it is way back in the large intestine or in the stomach or small intestine. This makes my Anemia SOO much worse. Imagine how you feel with the loss of blood coupled with inability to efficiently absorb nutrients like iron and magnesium

      Thing to recall is UC is mostly the large intestine while celiac is mostly the small, so symptoms and trying to get the feeling of where the problem is can help.  Also if you get a glutening expect to have the UC flare up right after the celiac flare up.

      NOTE it is hard for me to say still, on the exact details and clarity, it has been since june of last year that I had a major gluten consumption issue. UC I get more regular but without the direct comparison in a while my memory is a bit iffy. Just trying to recall those exact pains and feelings from that last time. Also UC seems to wax and wane in and out while almost always being present for months in the background you just feel a bit off in the gut. SO many triggers, I felt that for years I swear til I went to this keto diet and dropped all fruit, sugar, carbs, and grains. Could have been the anemia, but I think it was more of a combination of the inflammation, bleeding, gas, and just being uncomfortable.
    • Hi!  I wasn’t sure where to post this inquiry so I’m sorry if it is in the wrong place!  My blood work was negative for celiac although biopsy was suspicious.  I have severe joint pain and GI issues so have decided to eliminate all gluten to see if that helps. I hear I may need to supplement my diet with vitamins to make up for what I’m missing, but I don’t know what vitamins they are!  Can anyone help? Thanks, Sarah
    • Hello everyone Thank you so much for all your contributions and tips, I'm sorry for my absence but I've had a big project deadline to complete. Over all, I think things are on the mend for me too.  I was quite cynical at the doctors' approach at first. I'd have much rather had a scope to find out what was happening, instead of being prescribed three months of omemprazole or zantac to see if it helped.  Unfortunately the gen on the zantac contraindictaions list stipulated that zantac should only be prescribed if your doctor is sure what is wrong with you, as it might otherwise be covering up cancer!  Those aren't the things a hypochondriac wants to read!  Anyway,  during this that time I've taken one months of omeprazole (20mg) and as that gave me D I changed to two months of zantac (most days only 75mg a day, but doubling the dose on odd occasions when the burn seemed to come back).  During much of this period I've tried to keep my diet low in fat, spicy food, drinking very little caffeine, drinking strong camomile and slipper elm, and I think a key help has not eating for a 12 hour stretch overnight because I think that really helps the stomach heal.  I hope my system is finally recovering and hope to come off the zantac towards the end of this month.  It is hard to phase these things out slowly when you are already on the minimum dose, but all the tips about marshmallow, licorice and slippery elm etc will no doubt come very helpful then!   I have come to the conclusion that this is a new weakness in my system and I'll have to be very careful to avoid gastritis in the future, by no longer taking asprin (unless the doctor ever tells me I have to), not over doing fat, greasy food, etc.  The last time I drank some sparkling wine or fizzy drinks was awful, so I shall avoid them too. Throughout this time probiotics have helped me with the C, upper left quadrant pain  and wind that the zantac seems to have produced! And of course all the help from you guys. Will keep you posted Whitepaw on life post-zantac!
    • Ennis, can you tell us how to tell the difference between a UC flare and a glutening? It must be confusing for folks diagnosed with both to know at first which it is that is happening.
    • i ended up with dairy intolerance over 10 years ago, and celiac over 4 years ago, then this year got ulcerative colitis diagnosis.

      Dairy issues are caused by the fact the enzymes to digest it are produced by the tips of your villi, these are damaged first and most by the disease and you end up with dairy intolerance. Some people can add it back after a few years of healing. Other allergies and intolerance issues will also develop the longer your on gluten.....it will really just shorten the list more, as damage ramps up, digestive issues arise, and your body starts confusing other foods as a culprit and developing allergies.

      Your UC complicates things and is honestly going to make you much madder then the Celiac as per its flare ups. UC common triggers are gluten, soy, dairy, and in some cases like mine it is triggered by carbs and sugars like glucose and fructose.....yeah I had to go grain free and change to a nut, seed, leafy low carb veggies and egg white diet.
      Since you can not have nuts but do not mention meats I can say your lucky. I developed a issue where I can not digest meats due to my damage. I might suggest you look into a keto/paleo diet. Where you eat meats, eggs, leafy greens. a higher fat/protein diet.

      Now after 8 months on this diet I am seeing even more improvement and had have several issues resolve and am putting on weight.
