Amanda--you in for the Sillie Summit? ....And yes, we must find a way to git our friends out west here for this historic meeting B)

I am in for the Silly Summit, but I am hoping it will be held somewhere outside the Philly limits, since I will be traveling alone and I cannot do city driving and I get lost....it is scary for me....We can meet in other places out side the city though right?

Amanda--we'll have to figure something out that's good for everyone. :)

Well....I didn't make it to the Chiropractor :angry: I've been sick to my stomach since I woke up and was struck with D for the third time as I was locking the door <_<:(:angry:

Felt terrible for having to call them so late and say I wasn't going to make it. This hasn't happened is a long time....I think it's the new creamer I've been drinking in my tea--it has a little casein :ph34r: . I knew sumphin was up when I didn't go for 3 days, and then today this. I bought the creamer last Friday, so I'm sure it's the culprit.

I told Mark that it probably wouldn't agree with me since it was so good :angry:

I hear ya.

Yesterday I had some nachos with rice and beans and hot sauce that was made from pure ground up pepper seeds. Many things that I shouldn't have eaten. Towards the end of the day my tummy hurt pretty bad, and I was musing over my list of acceptable foods that I could eat that would soothe my tummy. -nothing. I ended up having salmon and nothing else.

Oh patti and Jess- Sorry you're both feeling uggy.....Unfortunately, I'm on your bandwagon with you. This 8 week part of antibiotics is uhm...sucking lemons. Headache, super achey and no appetite. Is it over yet? (No- 5 more weeks) <_<:(

Clearly the preferred cat of Silly yaks.

Yep- our male has coon in him!

Last year I got a note from a girl that said, "Thanks for helping me become a better person". Things like that remind me why I'm there.....

OOH!....reminds me of a story.....

Two years ago, near the end of the school year, I read some poems written by a boy for a class assignment and thought they were awesome...so I asked him if I could copy them.

I always gave him parental-type advice in a way that I thought he would listen.

....Then he met someone and proceeded to tell me about this first encounter with another boy....Tongue and all!!!! :o TMI!!!! :o:o:o

Doesn't that just get you- I had a similar note from a boy I had who was described by his previous teachers as a lazy, good for nothing slacker. He wasn't- he was a recovering alcoholic (15) and desperately wanted to do well but all his teachers had been mean to him. I still have the note and will always keep it!

If they feel like they can share stuff like that with you, you got the MS mojo baby!

Oh!! I forgot the greatest weakness question.

Or "my inability to convince people of my infallibility".

Or "WEAKnesses!?? Do you mean lesser strengths?"

My favorite answer was that I'm too hard on and impatient with myself :P

Ugh--compared to what you go through, my tummy ache is just a minor inconvenience! Keep your chin up, Bev, you're doing great with all this and just know that there is light at the end of the tunnel :);)

I so truly loved working with the kids at the high school. (all this talk about schools and the kids has me thinking about it) We lived in a smallish town where everyone seemed to know everyone else.

I couldn't go out of the house to the grocery or whatever without running into one of "my kids"--who always greeted me with a big hug. I do miss that since we moved, although I stay in touch with one of my former co-workers who became a friend -- she keeps me up to date :D

Bev!! Hang in there. ...I so admire your attitude, your phunniness when you're sick! :)

And Bev says she's IN for the Psilly Philly Psummit, if she's not family vacationing at the time....YAY!!

Sun's out here this AM, more rain later <_< .....basement report: new sump pump is working beautifully (and constantly) as well as the new dehumidifier! :D Operation dry-out is working!

Yay! Patti, did someone suggest that you invest in a backup sump? We did after our big flood....good insurance, and it can be programmed to kick in if the main one fails.

Just got a response from the shelter. I appear to have passed the initial application phase. I'll go visit them on Saturday to see if we get along.

Yessssss!! How exciting! Jess, you may come home wif' yer arms full of homeless cats/kittens...like, ten of them er sumfin'. I know that this would be a very real and present danger for me..... :rolleyes:

OMG - - just picturing my students greeting me with huge hugs... :lol::lol:

The French, I would say, are Europeans who are generally not openly affectionate or physical. At least, certainly not professionally - - there is clearly a line drawn. However, the Venezuelans? The Italians? Unable, at times, to extricatre myself from their arms.... :o:lol:

I was discussing the merits of a one-eyed cat with my room mate. He's against it, so I told them I was just going to meet them on Saturday and decide. He rolled his eyes at me and said "Yea, right. As soon as you see them you'll want them both."

Crazy cat lady status here I come.

If - and it's still a big if - this becomes something that can ameliorate even 10% of the misery some of these people go through, isn't it worth it? Even if a few people get stinking rich as a result?

funny from the folks:

An elderly Texas cowhand went to the local drug store and asked the pharmacist for the little blue Viagra pill.

The pharmacist asked 'How many?'

The cowboy replied, 'Just a few, maybe a half dozen. I cut each one into four pieces.'

The pharmacist said, 'That's too small a dose. That won't get you through sex.'

The old fellow said, 'Oh, I'm past eighty years old, and I don't even think

about sex much anymore.

I just want it to stick out far enough so I don't pee on my new boots.

Here I was, suddenly struck..."Hey! Who's BILL IN MARYLAND? Mygawd...a real new Newbie has started reading, and then actually POSTED here??!" I got all excited. But he's way over in another section, a safe distance from Sillyville.

Elsie's appointment is at 3:30. I'm leaving in a few. Knots in stomach..... :(

    • Reality check in the past few weeks, looks like I got glutened at what should be a "safe" restaurant for gluten-free and gone right back to the beginning again recovery-wise Now too scared to eat anywhere and turning down social opportunities because of the food issues, what a miserable way to live this is.
    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice.
