I had some errands today that couldn't be put off. It seems I have decided to become allergic to the sun. I have a positively beautiful rash from it. <_< I don't think I want to play the is it just from exposure or is it from a product/food and exposure combo game. I will simply avoid the sun midday.

 

Now that I am home, and totally beat I am just going to do some reheated pasta and meatloaf for dinner with some fried garlic green beans. I picked up some Moroccan mint and some mint strawberry at the garden store today since the herb shop doesn't sell mint.  :blink: I suppose I have to wait until close to sunset to go play garden hero.

or from me... I can tolerate the sun without overheating, rashes and bumps. Maybe it is one symptom  I "escaped"?

( that would be a first, since I have everything else on celiac, food intolerance and HIT symptoms lists.)  <_<

IDK you guys, sounds like the sort of thing that could be contagious. :P

 

I managed to get my mint in pots and all three (short) rows of corn in the ground tonight. My husband probably thinks I'm a little weird for gardening barefoot. Oh well, he can think what he likes. I like walking in the dirt in my bare feet.

Well, you got THAT from me. :D  I have always played in the yard barefoot. And I have the bee stings to prove it.

What can I say? I hate shoes. (not a girlie thing to say, I know) 

 

Going back to the gym today (although lugging things up the stairs for 5 hours and hurling them over my head into the dumpster  sure seemed as if I were at the gym the last few days) and then, the monthly BJs run (oh boy!) and then, my workout with the PT/MT and then, to Sherry Lynn's Gluten Free cafe. Yup, all G F all the time. I am so lucky to have her nearby and to call her my friend. I am trying to convince her she needs to open a franchise in Florida, Colorado, Kansas, Utah, California etc.........

 

Dinner tonight will be: whatever we do not finish for lunch. Her son gives us portions the size of Texas. And I hold him entirely responsible for my postDX weight gain (because I certainly did not shove those Boston cream  donuts, carrot cake cupcakes, cinnamon raisin bagels and almond cookies down my throat)

I have self-control. :ph34r:

Hubs is working tonight til 8 so we have a very small window to eat and get out of the house. Burgers and fries and out the door when he gets home. It may not be healthy, but it will get us through our night. I forgot to get up early to do errands before the middle of the day. Oops. :ph34r: I guess I can go this evening before dinner.

 

Last night I was standing in the kitchen in my bare feet covered in dirt. My shirt, my pants, my super dirty feet and I managed an epic belch. My husband was like way to be lady like. I just looked down at myself and and back at him and asked if I really look like a lady. :lol:

 

And there really is something magically special about being in the grass and dirt in bare feet. I don't think my husband understands because his mother probably never let him be outside barefoot after he was 9. :( I'm not sure he would find it wise to be out without shoes at this point which may be wise but is still sad.

Thanks for everyone's good wishes about my Mum. For what it is worth, I went for an approach of slow drip feed, transforming my health, and major emotional blackmail, when I told her as I couldn't get a diagnosis, but if she did, it might help if the kids ever needed it. Not proud, but desperate and happy.

Dinner is whatever goes out of date today.

When i was younger i always went barefoot. I learned how to run quickly across the dark road in 90 degree heat. When i moved, however, the area  i lived in was really rocky so i couldn't really do it.

 

Pasta tonight. Very little time on my hands.

Mothers have been emotionally blackmailing their children for untold centuries. Besides, in the words of every mother who has ever done this to her child... "its for your own good!" :lol:

Skipped dinner for the past couple of nights...some sort of allergy type fun prevented normal life....am feeling a bit better after resting this morning so I think ill make something nice for the men....steak, oven fries and asparagus with some kind of desert.

High point from the past few days....on my biology field trip the other day I had the Professor's ear so I was teasing him a bit about there being no As in his class...I suggested that I didn't think his computer was calculating grades correctly .... and I was right!!! The formulas for weighting tests was wrong....everybody's grade went up 4-10%. The old chick in class is now the hero :)

Old chicks rock! ;)  hope you feel better ASAP.

 

Making bison stuffed peppers, fresh green beans and sitting down after a week of more hard work and declaring it's "miller time". A startlingly cold bombay sapphire on the rocks with a few olives...ah, that's the ticket!

Histamine be damned.

 

Whew. All done. I even mowed the front lawn (which takes an hour) and I am feeling smug (despite banging my head on the half open garage door this morning--thanks dear hubs, I'm challenged enough without setting up land mines for me LOL ) and then, nearly poking my eye out with a tree branch as I ducked under the pin oak.

 

I should get hazard pay.

I rethought last night's plans. I forgot I had grabbed a pork loin at the store on sale so I just threw that in the oven for dinner. Tonight we'll do burgers because I'm subbing a night class and won't be home til about 9ish. I have no interest in anything that takes more effort than my counter grill and microwave tonight.

 

You should get extra credit for being generally awesome. B)

 

And most of us should get hazard pay just for getting out of bed. :lol:

    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
    • I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition.   Thanks
    • @Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks
    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a GOOD article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/ And, finally, I would strongly encourage you to review the articles you are posting and using legitimate news sources. The National Catholic Reporter is widely known to be a source of inaccurate Catholic news and most Catholics disregard the information that comes from their paper. The Catholic church is not excluding anyone from receiving Holy Communion.
