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?!

Actually.......it's incredible........but this guy ^_^ looks astonishingly like Mr. Chong.

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).

    • I can definately identify with this. I half-laughingly refer to myself as an 'elder orphan'.   I can't afford anything like a secret santa but would love the opportunity to exchange holiday cards with others here.  It is comforting in a way to realize that I am not the only person who is isolated but kind of sad to know that there are others in the same boat. When I talk to folks with large close extened families who endlessly complain about them I just want to slap them sometimes.
    • Yes IELs can be linked to other things. However, increase in IELs, loose stools, and a good response to a gluten free diet would point to celiac.  Celiac panels vary lab to lab and not all labs run all of the tests so you might want to post here after you get your results. My brother was negative to the labs run but they failed to run the DGP test in him (which I have tested positive on before). He is a biopsy confirmed celiac.  Thyroid issues can give you the runs, and lipase can indicate how well your pancreatic and gallbladder system is working, both can also cause tummy issues. Both issues are also common in celiacs as mentioned by others. Sounds like you have a great doc.  Last, my initial last biopsy was read by a hospital pathologist to be increase in IEL. The slides were read by a celiac specialist at that same hospital after they were re-cut (don't ask, I have no idea) and read Marsh 2-3A damage with areas of normal villi.   
    • Hi Benjamin and welcome You've found a good site. Everyone above has given you good advice I just wanted to reinforce this point from Ravenwoodglass: Some people (like me), test negative for celiac but still have a problem with gluten. This is called Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and is not a well known or understood condition. Suffice to say if you do test negative, you shouldn't assume that gluten is fine for you, it may well not be. Best of luck! Matt
    • You're welcome I don't think any doctor should be too reluctant to request a blood test if you set things out for them in the right way. You have symptoms consistent with celiac/gluten sensitivity, you have anecdotal evidence (your positive reaction to going gluten free). So you have a good case.  If and when you get some tests scheduled you will have to go back on gluten. This can be rough. It helped me to come on here and document how I was feeling. Support from here helped me get through the challenge period. So do come back on if your doing the challenge.
    • I agree that you should keep eating gluten and get tested if you can.  The reason for the increase in symptoms after being gluten free is the antibodies flaring in response to you injesting what your body doesn't want you to consuming.  Your body is letting you know in no uncertain terms that gluten is not something it wants.  You don't have to consume a lot of gluten for testing. A couple slices of bread worth is enough.  There is a chance with most of your issues sounding like they are neuro related for a false negative. After testing you should IMHO go back to being strictly gluten free no matter what the results. Keep in mind that many doctors consider celiac to be a solely GI problem and won't test if you don't have gastro issues.  Sounds like your body is giving you the answer but a formal diagnosis can be helpful with family members and freinds taking the condition as seriously as you need to take it.
