I made a typo on a post and want to correct it, but I don't see the edit button.

ETA: It's here on this post, although my first edit didn't "take".

The post in question is this one:

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?showtopic=35643

The edit envelope has closed. :blink: The edit button will remain on a new post for several hours then it disappears. This is the results of the "tweaking" of the site several weeks ago from the administration.

I would vote for getting the edit button back. Having the option to go back and edit if I've decided that the medical info. I've posted is too personal / identifying is important to me.

Yes, I could do that, I just don't want to. I guess I'm just not a message board person - that's okay with me. I guess it's that I say things that I wish I hadn't, even though I really do feel that way - at the time - my bad. Part of it is that through these last 2 years gluten-free, my opinions have changed at times. I sometimes don't feel like I did last year, or eve 5 minutes ago. I wish i didn't care about people who are struggling, but I do, and so i let a little piece of me go out there. I offer it up because maybe it'll help someone, but then I realize how rediculous it is that I think I can take a piece of me and help someone else with it. Nonsense. I own this.

I think I won't be back here to post again, but there may come a time when I feel differently.

thanks for everything, Safe Travels, Take care, yadda,yadda,yadda ...

Kat,

We all share pieces of ourselves with the hopes that we can help someone. That's what this board is about. There is a lot of support given here. It's here to take or here to give.

Thank You, I appreciate that.

I guess the fact (if you'll all indulge me) is that communication is much more than a bunch of words in a post. Believe me, I'm a huge fan of words, context, grammar, if you will, but readers can't hear Vibe. What I'm communicating now is just more of the same ... will it be misunderstood? Possibly, in fact, probably, it will - at least to some degree. Am I over-thinking? Maybe, but what happens when the wrong person says the right thing and it's taken the wrong way? I make so much more sense in person. I don't think I'm alone in this - I just think I'm less of a risk-taker than most. I'm just decreasing the odds of accidentally making someone feel crummy. I don't want to be responsible for making someone else feel crummy just because they can't hear the inflection in my voice. I'm not bummed or anything. I'm happy as a clam to stay out of forums, where things such as this exist for me. Nothing happened today or with the other thread that hasn't occurred to me many times in the past. The only difference now is that what I said before can't be changed - at least not without the type of effort that I'm not really willing to put into it.

{{{{Insert emoticon: Left eyebrow raised, head slightly cocked to the right, mouth opened slightly, half-smiling and a deep breath IN that suggests that I'm not really stoked about it, but that's the way it is.}}}}

{{{{Insert emoticon: A content smile with a message:}}}}

LOVE

The risk is the same for all of us. You have no control over how people interpret your words, no matter how carefully you choose them.

I just figure if somebody wants to put a negative spin on my words, it's just a reflection of their own unhappiness. Maybe I can change that, maybe I can't, but I know I'll feel bad if I haven't at least offered my opinion. And my happiness is something I can control.

I hear what you're saying, and I feel the same. I suppose that's why I do reply, and why I'll most likely continue to reply, despite my desire to withdraw myself from the forum. Everyone here takes that risk, and I know that. Thanks for offering up your opinion ;):lol:

    • Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as things like barley pearls and wheat berries are often sold as dried goods and would probably be done on the same lines. I would agree that dry beans could be problematic depending on source. 
    • No, Armour has always been gluten free.  The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage.  That has long since resolved.  Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015.  They increased the price!  Now it is comparable to synthetic.   Imtried to find a good and reputable source about the history of thyroid replacement.  Here is one link -- the story is pretty accurate, but the site is trying to sell you stuff.   https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/the-history-of-natural-desiccated-thyroid-medications/  
    • If she is now at a public school, accommodations can be made for disabilities.  Here is a link that explains a 504 plan and an IEP, but you will have to investigate based on your state.   https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/advocacy-resources/section-504-and-written-management-plans https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/504-plan/the-difference-between-ieps-and-504-plans http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/504-plans.html https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html i am not very knowledgeable about this subject, so I encourage you to contact your school district for help.  Your doctor might be a good resource too.   You might consider homeschooling until she has been diagnosed and has received treatment.  The Department of Education can direct you to homeschooling resources.  There are lots of wonderful programs out there and you can get financial support.   I wish you all well!  
    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he found out he has issues with corn. Corn has identical genetic make-up as gluten.  Corn is sneaky and everywhere. Contact the manufactures, ask them if there is a chance of contamination or corn ingredient in their products. My son gets neurological problems when gluten/cornized. Anxiety, obsessive thoughts, can not think. He had to be taken out of school and homeschooled. He just found out the digestive enzymes he was taking contain an enzyme that is grown on barley. Enzymedic basic.  My suggestions for you are, seriously go find another place to live. You need your mind and health to continue school. If you don't and continue living where you are, school will suffer. In your spare time, find out all you can about gluten and what other foods act like gluten in the body. Like I said, corn has the same genetic make up as gluten, some people can not eat rice either. This is something that is doable, it is just becoming very aware of what goes in the mouth. Please find another place to live. You don't need to deal with those jerks, you have enough going on with school and health. There might be other people in your school that are celiac or gluten sensitive. Find them, post notes up, start a newsletter about gluten free lifestyle. I bet there are many people that would welcome that newsletter.  You don't need to do this alone!   You are the most important person in your life, you deserve to feel good and be respected! Stay away from those that don't respect you. Search out those that will.  Eating out is something that can be done, find those places that will work with you. Ask to have burgers or meat cooked on aluminum foil. Fresh veggies, fruits all gluten free. Again, research restaurants in your area willing to work with you. Even call the manager and talk to them. All the best to you!  Hang in there.
