I have accomplished my 'to-do' list for the day:

1.) Get dressed..................check

Everything else that gets done is just bonus, right?

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...

I managed to string out my university years to 11, wonderful days, but you'd not catch me doing it again now! It just took me 3 years to get round to a 13 000 word imformal assignment... I get the smartphone issue :o :o :o :o :o

SIW

Sounds fun if hard work :) I did a load of anthropology in amoungst social science ane media stuff. I love the methodology side. Good luck, sounds like you've got a handle on it.

11 years? eeeeek i couldn't do that.

I started college in 1992... still in college. No serious time off (semester here or there when moving/etc). But I have 3 undergrad and almost done with 2 masters. I am planning on stopping in December 2013 when graduate... again.

    • This paper from 2015 suggests the opposite is true: High Proportions of People With Nonceliac Wheat Sensitivity Have Autoimmune Disease or Antinuclear Antibodies. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/26026392/ Of course correlation does not equal causation, but it is compelling and something worth watching. 
    • Thanks Matt again My Doctor just moved away so i dont even have a doctor at the moment, thats why its so hard, ill pretty much be going to some random doctor who doesnt know me at all and asking for a celiac test, hopefully i pick a good one ps you can have the ashes for being helpful    
    • Hello and welcome It can be scary and there's definitely a mental side to dealing with this which is at least as important as the physical. If available to you consider seeking out some counselling to help you process this. It was really useful for me, as were the people on this forum which is a great resource which you should use as much as you need to.  And, easy to say, try to be optimistic!  It may be that you've solved a huge health puzzle whilst you're still young and have lots of great years ahead of you, years which will be so much more enjoyable gluten free. Time will help you learn the diet and what at first seems impossible will become the new normal to the point where you won't have to think too much about it. We are an adaptable species and however hard it seems at the outset you will adapt and you will feel better. Best of luck!  
    • Hi again Long time since I lived down under but I'll give it a shot pending any Aussie members replying... Your naturopath has helped you and put you on what sounds like the right track, but now consider that you may be better off with a conventional doctor for the testing process.  Be wary of food intolerance tests. They are notoriously inaccurate and as you've found expensive. The first priority is to get a celiac diagnosis/exclusion, you can proceed better from there. The tests to request are:  Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Total Serum IgA Some practices will only test one. Request a 'full celiac panel'. Before you see the doctor make some concise notes / bullet points that detail: Your past medical history Your positive initial reaction to the gluten diet Your wish now to seek a medical diagnosis and willingness to comply with any requirements That should be sufficient for a doctor to request a test.   No! Your naturopath doesn't know what they're talking about if they're talking about the accepted celiac tests. You'll need to do 8-12 weeks eating gluten to ensure an accurate test. Otherwise you're throwing money away.  A local doctor should be able to request the tests so if you have one you're happy with try there. Alternatively you can search to see if anyone within a reasonable distance is listed maybe with Coeliac Australia or via some of the links here https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/coeliac-disease Again, *good luck with it all and keep asking questions, this place was very helpful to me and I'm sure it will prove so to you also. Cheers, Matt                               *ps But bad luck in the Ashes to compensate  
    • I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, but my Mom has Graves.  I have been both hyper and hypo.  Had crazy swings for a while while going through menopause and being undiagnosed with celiac disease.  My thyroid calmed down on the gluten-free diet.  My enlargement and nodules went as well.  Not sure if it was the gluten-free diet or simply reducing my immune response (inflammation)  by addressing celiac disease.  Does that make sense?   In the meantime, you might consider eliminating most dairy.  Celiacs tend to be lactose intolerant --- at least temporarily unless you are genetically predisposed (as are some huge chunk of the world's population).  It could bring you some relief while you complete testing.  You might however, be one of the lucky celiacs who can eat all the dairy they want!  Throw in some veggies  and some healthy fats to help off set your weigh loss.  Your body is probably starving for nutrients right now, so make every bite count.
