FaithInScienceToo-Yes I can see how you made your decision. Your reasons make sense and if you want to go for it. They need to be alerted somehow on what not to give you.

How was the day with your 4 year old niece? Little kids are so cute :D

Talk to you all later :D

I wear my medic alert everywhere because I am bery high compeditave in soccer, and if it is an away game, and my parents aren't there, and I get hurt,(which has happened...) I would make sure that everyone knew what i could/couldn't have, and if I can't talk, then the bracelet is a way of conveying it to them

I see your point, but I would think that if something really bad happens to you, you want people to give you whatever you need to get better--then you can deal with a gluten reaction.

Hi Faith,

Welcome to the board and good luck to you! I have a lot of the same intolerances and soy is a definate NO. I had the York allergy testing done which helped me to fine tune what I should be watching..It's still a challenge though and I have slips.

Eggs came up the strongest in so far as allergies and those seem to have been what I reacted a lot to! Milk also kills me. So....what I'm saying is that you could have a lot of other intolerances as a results of your celiac disease.

I recently started estrogen replacement (vivelle dot) and it has helped so mcuh with the night sweats and migraines....That could be part of your problem as you are perimenapausal. I had a total hysterectomy 2 years ago and was never put on any estrogen. It only messed me up more. So....I am fising one thing at a time.

Keep us posted as to how you are doing! Good luck with your new love interest too!

That in itself could be exciting!

Happy Sunday, all:

Thanks for the new posts, and continued warm welcomes!

I SO enjoy hearing your stories...reading your recollections of 'the bad stuff' makes me feel 'not so alone'...but, I most enjoy hearing of your triumphs!

"We, go, girls!" :) oops...and guys, too, 'out there' in cyber space....

Kaiti...thanks for asking about my day yesterday with my 4-year-old niece, Anna...

It was fun. I first took her to visit her "Nana and Poppy" - my folks (ages 76)...we brought Valentine's flowers and a balloon with love birds on it to them...

and then we went to one of my Bros and his family, so that she could play with my other little niece, Sarah, who is 3 years old. When we first arrived, my sis-in-law had to feed the baby, and my bro went out to buy pizza (luckily, I brought alone food I could eat)...so, I played soccer with the girls, and chase, of course...Having 2 little kids chase me around the backyard was a joy...

In the car on the way to my folks' house (a 50 minute drive) Anna and I talked about the various holidays that occur throught the year. She enjoyed trying to remember the order they come in...When I got to Memorial Day...well, it was, of course, the hardest 'holiday' to discuss...She had a lot of questions about war...I ended that part of our talk with, "I only hope that when you and the other little children grow up, we, and all of the other coutries in the world, won't be starting any more wars..."

Ugh...guess I'm back to 'politics'...didn't mean to...but, that was the 'most poignant' part of the day with my dear niece, so sharing it seems appropriate...

I most enjoy teaching her about love...at every opportunity I can.

Thanks for asking, Kaiti.

and....Thanks, everyone, for 'being there' -

Gina

Just wondered...do some people on here contact each other 'off the board?'

Via e-mail...for more personal support?

Just curious -

I do--I periodically e-mail/PM 3-4 people from the board, and exchange frequent e-mails/IMs with one person from here....I think I've made a few good friends so far-- :)

I've gotten a couple emails, maybe a dozen or two in the year I've been here. Nothing particularly regular, myself, but that's pretty standard for me.

Mariposa Brownies -- the triple chocolate truffle -- are bar none the ABSOLUTE BEST gluten-free brownie/baked good I have tasted. You could serve them to non-gluten-free people and they's NEVER know the difference.

I am on my second order from Mariposa. They are high quality gourment, as reflected by the price, but soooo worth it!!! I have tried the mixes and some store bought brownies like Crave Bakery in SF and NOTHING is even close to the Mariposa. I think the trick is they do not use a lot of flour so they are super mosit.

I am so happy I have discovered Mariposa Brownies!!!

    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
