Death Of Mother

Hello

As many of you have noticed I have not been posting much here for about 6 months. My mother was very ill & sadly she has passed away at her home (her wish) on Nov.22 2010. I know she is in eternal life with all her departed love & her Lord... she is where no illness, no pain , no sadness can hurt her ever again. I am thankful I was able to take loving care of her for the last 6 months.

My heart aches for me but I know she is in God's keeping.

blessings

It's a big change losing a father or mother. They guide us in so many things and in some ways we don't even understand until later. I am sorry for your loss but I agree she is in a better place and probably happy as a clam. That doesn't make the missing of her in your day to day life less important, or less noticeable, but she would probably want you to cheer up fairly soon. But grieving is a normal thing, and we all go through it.

I think this verse is a real hopeful thing to look forward too.

'Romans 8-36 to 39.

36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I"m sorry for your loss, MamaW. You are right, she is now free of illness, pain and sadness and has moved to a beautiful place of peace and joy. Nevertheless, it is still painful for those of us still here as we miss the physical presence of our loved ones.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    • It's not the Teflon that is the problem. It is the tiny amounts of gluten that are hidden in the cracks of previously used cookware. Personally, (and I have had this confirmed by the UCLA celiac center), it is not necessary to purchase new cook ware when going gluten free. Once you have cleaned the cookware well and cooked on it a couple of times with gluten free food, all of the gluten will be gone. What IS necessary is to not continue to cook gluten containing items in those pots and pans. Now that you have your new pots and pans (and hopefully a gluten-free colander and a toaster), label them all gluten-free or not). Don't cook any gluten containing foods in your new pots and pans and you should be good to go.
    • Short answer to this:  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating? All of us!!!!!! It's mourning & it's normal. Breaking down in the grocery store & sobbing? Yep. Normal & I think we've all done it at least once if not multiple times. I would love to say more but dinner is calling me to go make it so I have to run for now. HUGS!
    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.  
    • Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.
