this was actually discussed many times during the siege. Somewhere, there is a photo of this leg, but it's long since gone. I do think we should have contacted the media, I could have made my fortune.....

Wow....a weeping Virgin Mary on yer leg.....

I can see the exodus...crowds of townsfolk on pilgrimmage from distant lands, all to kneel before S-oozie's envisioned leg.....

:lol: And you could have charged ten bucks a minute.

sillies, I've been given a prescription of steroids..........gads. May be awake for days on this.

Steroid......gad....no beard appearing over the running face ooze, is there?.... :o:lol:

Hmm. Logically, I would say that it is meant to conjur up the opposite emotion of this guy. -_-What in hell do they mean?!

I never had trouble sleeping while on steriods--I took them way too frequently years ago.....my doctors would give them to me as they had no idea what else to do. <_< Read: to get rid of me. :angry:

The worst side effect was the moon face--I would get that. :huh: (moon face)

I'll bet you sleep better tonight since the itching should start to abate.

Yes, I duno what's come over me......

...However, symmetry, I would say, is as much artistic as it is mathematical, n'est-ce-pas?

And asymptote??!! Gaaaaahhhhhhh........TOO MUCH MATHS!!!!!!!!

Susie, this is for you, with my apologies:

Asymptote (n): a straight line associated with a curve such that as a point moves along an infinite branch of the curve, the distance from the point to the line approaches zero and the slope of the curve at the point approaches the slope of the line...

Right, Ptaoughmn? :lol::lol:

Oooooooo ya got me there -_-^_^

(P'r'aps I could contend that the artistic side is also directly mathy, both in its necessary prevalence in nature and in the means of perception thereof, including the neurological aspects pre-existant in every modern homo-sapiens' cortextual ... ..oh who am I kidding?!!!!! :lol: )

Vet who treats Stepford cats. Although, after S-oozie's stories about the Stepford dog, maybe the vet I saw just indulges in absinthe after work and hallucinates those cats that calmly let you chuck a pill down their throats.

(I really just needed a reason to be able to write S-oozie :P )

Here are some instructions on giving a cat a pill. Hope it helps Jess.

And yet the precision brought by paragraph after paragraph I found delightful.

Conversely, a similar qty written on the finer points of your specialty would freak ME out!! :wacko:

<sniff> you even had a greek letter mathematical symbol - capital epsilon was it?

This is developing into a desperate situation. In case of escalation, do you have some Altoids handy? I believe that the optimum quantity is two, according to Karen (who has been missing for a while).

Times tables for the number 17--I didn't know that was the conversion factor.

In my undiagnosed days I had trouble communicating with people in the US about my sugar levels. They had no clue what 2.8 meant, and I could not translate. For the people who don't have to worry about blood sugar, 2.8 is dangerously low, and in my pre-diagnosis days was time for me to pass out while someone called 911. Not phun at all. Malabsorption combined with type 1 diabetes...

Things are much better since I went gluten-free. Jacquie is trying the diet to see if it helps with the headaches she has been having, but it is too early to make an assessment. I was gluten-free for a year before I realized that my migraines were gone (and still are).

    • About 10 days ago I think I ate most of a wheat tortilla (the restaurant stuck to their story that it was a corn tortilla like I had ordered, but I don't believe them - I'm pretty sure it was wheat). Nothing happened in the first couple of days, then I developed intermittent chest tightness, which was one of my primary symptoms before my diagnosis, the others being bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, and weight loss.  Anyone else get chest tightness as a symptom of being glutened? I haven't felt this symptom since I became very strict with cross-contamination.
    • I had 23andme testing which showed I have genes DQ2.5 and DQ8. When I learned this I decided to stop eating gluten to PREVENT getting celiac, but didn't worry about cross-contamination. A year later I got sick, and eventually had an endoscopy which showed Marsh 1. My blood tests were negative, as one would expect for anyone eating gluten-free. My gastroenterologist told me I could either decide to live like a celiac, or do the full 12-week gluten challenge. I cleaned up my kitchen and started being very careful with eating away from home, and my symptoms went away.
    • The beginning of your story sounds very much like mine. I stopped eating gluten regularly when I adopted a mostly paleo diet years ago (bonus: my lifelong canker sores disappeared!). When I got 23andme testing done and learned I have both high-risk celiac genes, I stopped eating gluten altogether, thinking I couldn't trigger celiac if I didn't have gluten exposure. But, since I didn't have a celiac diagnosis or symptoms, I wasn't careful about cross-contamination.  Then I got sick. My symptoms were vague: bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, weight loss, chest tightness. I had a bunch of tests, tried omeprazole, and eventually had an endoscopy. Because I hadn't eaten gluten in a year, I didn't expect any results suggesting celiac, but sure enough, my biopsies came back as Marsh 1: inconclusive, but all the other reasons to cause this result had already been ruled out or were very unlikely. I then had bloodwork for celiac, which was negative, as expected for anyone on a gluten-free diet. At this point I was sent to a gastroenterologist, who said she could not definitively diagnose me with celiac, and that my options were either to assume I have celiac and live like a celiac, or to do the full 12-week gluten challenge and then repeat all the testing. i didn't want to take the risk of triggering another autoimmune disease by doing the gluten challenge, so I cleaned up my kitchen, replaced my cutting boards, cast iron pans, and anything plastic or silicone, and confined gluten to one corner of the counter. I started being the annoying person at restaurants and potlucks asking a thousand questions. And my symptoms went away. i still don't know whether I have celiac. I struggle with the restrictions it places on my life outside of my home (travel, social life). Periodically I wonder whether I shoukd just do the gluten challenge so I know. But I'm afraid of the possible risks. Your allergist did you a great disservice my telling you to go on a gluten-free diet without testing you for celiac. But that ship has sailed. At this point I would say your choices are the same as mine: either do a complete 12-week gluten challenge and then retest, or decide to live as if you had a firm celiac diagnosis. It can be a tough decision. Good luck and I hope you figure it out and get better very soon!  
    • We do not have gluten in my home other then the bread he  Uses to make school lunch sandwiches.  however I am divorced so he spends a good part of the week at his dad's as well where he can eat whatever he wants. My son is a terrible eater and has been very picky since he was 2 years old, he's now 6.  Up until recently he literally would only eat 5 things. He once vomited all over my kitchen after I insisted that he try watermelon.   In the last several months he's been expanding what it is that he will eat however. Unfortunately still no fruits or vegetables, I have to sneak those In via juice.  it is actually one of the reasons that  I am not in a hurry to get him tested. I have to return to Boston to see my specialist next summer and we are going to take my son with us then for testing.  so it buys me time to expand his food list just in case we have to take half of it away.  my brother's children however, because he's a farmer, have always eaten a lot of Whole foods.  his house is totally gluten free but his mother-in-law will take his daughter out for treats occasionally. She does not seem to suffer any adverse reactions. My nephew on the other hand was always constipated and bloated when he was on gluten.  The kids will literally just walk out into the garden and grab a cucumber and start eating it basically.  I'm not even exaggerating. I am envious that his kids will do that and I wish that I had  tried harder with my son when he was younger instead of always defaulting to what he would eat.  I know my nephew will verbalize a memory of not liking some of the changes that were made initially at their house, like with the gluten-free bread. But then he will say he likes it now. So I think kids do definitely adjust  their preferences.  unless of course you're my son, and then the neighbors are wondering whether or not they should call Child Protective Services because  There is an awful lot of screaming next door at dinner time.
