You're home!!!!!!! Welcome Back!

I am!!! Finally!!! It was a long trip to be couped up in a little RV. I'm very glad to be home. Thanks again for filling me in on the Idol results. I was dying to know how things went. I can't wait to watch the show, we DVR'd it. :) We actually ended up coming home a day early because the RV sprung a water leak and the carpet inside was getting wet. Yuck!

I really think Jordin has a strong chance to win this thing. I'm a huge Blake fan, but i really think Jordin may have it wrapped up if she has a decent night tonight. Either way they will both be superstars, so it really doesn't matter. They both have incredible star quality. I think this is the first year in which both of the contestants in the finale have such amazing star quality. I'm even more amazed that Jordin is so young and has it. It's funny too because this year started off so rough with so many contestants that really should have never been there.

They not only sound amazingly good but they both have great personalities. Jordin's very sweet and loving and Blake seems to have strong character and very grounded. I liked how his dad is so proud of him it made him cry and Blake wanted to comfort him.

Really I don't care who wins like you said they're both winners already. Both will get record deals and both will have strong sales

I thought this was interesting:

Even Lewis appears to be on Team Jordin. "She's 17 and she's already a woman," he gushed, before going on to sabotage himself. "She performs, she's good-looking, she's got a fantastic personality and it reads really well on camera. And so I love Jordin Sparks. ... Regardless of the finale, I think she already won it in my mind and she was my pick in the beginning."

I so disagree with Randy and Simon that AI is a singing competition and therefore the best vocals win. I wish they would define that better. If that were true then yes Jordin would win she was great last night. I'm so happy Simon complimented her.....finally. He was alittle hard on her. But if we expanded the definition of AI to performance and entertainment and also things like how confident you are and how you move, how you act with the audience,(maybe you can think of more) then your not so hung up on whether you missed a note or not.

Well they were both good last night. I agree Jordin best vocals and Blake best performance.

I didn't care who won last night until the judges all pushed so hard for Jordin. Now I'm cheering for Blake. And that song they both had to do last night??? Horrible. I wouldn't want that on either of their first albums.

Yeah, I think Jordin might have it. I liked them both last night, but I really think Jordin put a lot of herself into her performances last night. I actually loved the way Blake did the songwriter's song. :P

It's really funny about the judge's comments on singing competition cuz they're always knocking the contestants for not having a "performance". :P

I DO wish the judges would keep their "predictions" a little less gushy...that can't feel good for any of the contestants. Even if I was the one they were gushing about...sure, I'd feel good, but I'd also feel bad for the other contestant.

I think Blake will actually do a lot better if he loses. If he wins that horrible song with have to be his single, right? That would not be good :lol:

I agree with you there. That song is not for him. I definitely thing Jordin deserves to win but I do like Blake more because he's so different.

I really don't care who brings it home. I just like the reaction when they announce the winner. Can't wait for tonight!

i take solice in the fact that the people who win dont generally do well with their careers. but the 3rd and 4th placers do, i will buy la kisha's and melinda's albums long before blake or jordins. and i know im not the only person out there that feels this way.

I'm going to end up watching both shows together again. I will be working tonight, but will TIVO it.

I do think that the ones that don't win come out ahead though.

I may catch the show but may not. My mom and sister and her new baby are coming to visit so I need to clean the house a bit. I also may make dinner for my future mother in law and brother in law. Due to our work schedules it may be a later dinner too.

The winners do very well in their careers too usually. Look at Fantasia Barrino, she's starring in a Broadway show. That's pretty big. Plus, her album is awesome! She's done other acting things as well. Carrie Underwood is unbeatable in the country scene. She's won how many awards so far? Kelly Clarkson is doing very well for herself musically. The only one that really hasn't done anything is Rueben and even he had a few hit songs. Plus, he was on Sesame Street. :) He he he...

Amanda, do you want me to text you the winner or are you recording it? Let me know. If you want to know who wins, just text me.

angie, I am so sorry I didnt see your message until the morning. I did catch the end. I have been so sick. I am not sure if it is allergies or what but ugh. My family is coming to visit today which is nice. Thanks though ;)

So everyone I guess this is the end of our Idol thread till next year. I think I am going to watch the So you think you can dance show. That looks good.

I don't really watch very much TV at all. I am on my computer more. I have to be real interested in a show to remain seated the whole time. So alot of times during Idol I was getting antsy in the last 15 minutes or so. I am just that kind of person. My attention span is not always so good. :) You should see me at work.

I am glad Jordin won, although it looked as if she knew she had won.

I did not agree with Randy and Simon basically saying Jordin you deserve to win. How do you think Blake felt, I know if I was in Blakes shoes I would have felt horrible. I think the way Paula said it was much more nice.

I think she knew she won to, and i agree it was mean that they said she should win. But i do think it did come down to that song, i think neither one song it great, but jordin did the best with it. I honeslty think when they wrote that song they were making it for melinda lol.

I am the same way, i never can sit for very long, even when im on the puter, i get up and down so much. There are many times i start an post and have to get up and then come to finish it.

I have a new laptop I bought just a week ago and didn't get to really to play too much with it. The keys seem a little farther away than my old one, so I can be writing a post and then I hit a key by accident and it either disppears or the words get all mixed up. Frustrating. LOL

Well my family is arriving,

Have a great day Paula!!!

    • Just wondering if you have an update at all? Going through the same thing at the the moment with my type 1 14 yr old. I would be interested to know what your gi said and how your daughters doing now? xx
    • 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!
