I had trouble remembering my own birthday when I was a kid. Not too big

on dates and anniversaries and the like, so it's nice that there are so many

internet and computer and phone things that remind you!

Alright guys i have a major delima......

So wasp #5 showed up whilst i was in the bathroom. I quickly shut the door and went to find something to clean it with. It was above my head and all i had was shower cleaner (works rather well for disabling them). I sprayed, it fell down, and i squished. But i failed to take into account all of my stuff on teh counter.

My retainer case (with said retainer in it) was sittng atop of a major spray doused area. I'm pretty sure none got in however, when i went to check there is a major possibility that it did.

How do i clean it so that it goes away? :( Right now its sitting in some hydrogen peroxide. I need my retainer and i can't afford to replace it.

I don't know, i think part of it is because of the warm/cold weather thing thats been going on. Then others in the building leaving the doors/windows open. I've contacted housing and thats the reason they gave me.

I'll do that after the peroxide. My mom said to just rinse it off really good, but i'd rather be on the safer side.

Wolfie- give it a good rinse with running water then a good soak. It will be fine. It didn't have the stuff on it for more than a few minutes.

Okay :)

I tried the viniger and baking soda, that was a fun experiment :lol: Right now the retainer is soaking in some water. I've got to go clean the case. I think with that one i can get away with some dishsoap on it.

Wow, you are way cooler than I would be!! That's at least flowers, maybe jewelry in my book. Or a book of course.

Very sweet though :)

Hope you had a lovely birthday. Good film?

I've always told Superman he didn't have to get me anything for my BD or Anniversary. He does so much for me year round. He'll usually get me a card and once in a while (when we have $ he'll knock my socks off (like the Christmas that he got me a gorgeous platinum, dark gold and light gold wedding ring and earring set covered in diamonds- I got him sweat pants that year). It's really important to me that I throw him a birthday party for his 1/2 a century birthday because last year when I was delirious I did't even remember his birthday - 1st time in 23 years I forgot). I have girlfriends that tell their BF's or DH's that they don't care about their special days but it's really a trap. I have no respect for them. I think your birthday call was very sweet and he didn't have to tell you it took fb to remind him. Anyway wishing you a HEALTHY year!!

Love,

Loey

So, I am getting close to 6,000 posts (this should be 5,998). Scott is a post ahead of me when I last checked.

Bad karma is already coming my way!

I drive a 12-year-old Toyota 4Runner. The hand brake cable is sticking. I use the hand brake all the time, because I shift for myself (manual transmission). 2000 was the last model year that you could get a 4Runner with a stick shift in North America. :(

We were going to bake pizza crusts Saturday, but the oven gave off a smell of burnt plastic and then died. Need to place a service call in the morning. The stove is an antique--we may have to finally consider replacing it.

And, as if we did not need more, the drain from the washing machine is backing up. I have checked the trap in the sink, and it is clear, so the problem is downstream from there. Need to call a plumber, too.

Got some laughs from watching Blazing Saddles on DVD this evening. Now to bed.

Update on the retainer: it has been cleaned as much as it can be. Even the dentist couldn't get it this clean O.O

On other bad related news. One of the moles on my back has decided to start an exploration. Right now its a oval shape multicolored monster about the width of a penny. The next time i can get to the doc isn't until later in december, so i'll ask her if i can just have it removed. I had one on my inner thigh (was born with it apperenlty) and it decided to get bigger. Long story short, had it removed, the doctor at the time took the stiches out too early, the site busted open in class (stupid hard desk), back to the E.R., also discovered during this time i had a problem with neosporan and bandaids, now have a nice large scar. Ugh. I also know the dangers of moles very well. Its in a spot where i'll have to be careful once i have stiches. And of course i can't badage it myself or take care of it.... grrrr...

on yet another note, my computers display keeps crashing. It was just in the shop in august-september for over a month for a motherboard replacement.

Looks like I may be superb%$@# wife from hell on this one then :o

Been together 12 years so must be doing something right :)

I did work out early on that by 'give me some hints what you want' meant tell me exactly what you'd like, preferably in writing!

At Christmas we often get each other tickets, and then enjoy a concert or festival together the following summer. We don't really need more stuff...

Mark the plumber is on his way to see about the sink.

Tony, our appliance guy, is on his way tomorrow to see if the 35 year old Harvest Gold Stove is salvageable. Yup that is correct Harvest Gold! ColoUr alone should tell you how old it is :lol:

Sounds good, hopefully the fixes will be simple and not too expensive:)

Don't forget the thumb reports ! :)

Here it is! Post number 6,000 by yours truly. Scott is still at 5,997.

The plumber and his helper are here, trying to get to the root of the problem. Well, that is it, you see. The drain is partially obstructed by tree roots that the plumber's snake is having trouble getting through. This is a condo, so the part of the plumbing outside the walls is the responsibility of the corporation. Hmmm.

    • Please check the date on post, you just responded and tried talking to a person from 7 years ago. On consideration to the subject Poatoes are a huge flare factor for my UC and cause my blood sugar to sky rocket...I am not even diabetic but for some reason potatoes (hash browns) that I tried a few months ago with some eggs shot it up over 400. not even a control test with table sugar managed that.
    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!    
    • I know for certain gastritis  is one of the main reasons I had the scope. That and my EOE symptoms . If it wasn’t for those I would have never been diagnosed 
    • Sometimes when those chilly winds begin to blow, and the temperatures fall, the days get visibly shorter, what we need and what we want is comfort food. Well, look no further than this simple, easy twist on scalloped potatoes. A little ham and a bit of cheese work wonders to turn that old favorite into a meal all its own. View the full article
