Yea...my mom thinks I do too much of it--and I do...a few days ago, my status was as follows:

- Celiac.com board (where I post most often--loyal to my roots :D )

- Delphi Forums board

- Listserv

- 6 Yahoo Groups (which I was getting by e-mail--3 in digest form)

- Numerous gluten-free newsletters and the like, such as Clan Thompson

...and, I'm embarrassed to say, I was eyeing two other forums, one in particular. I don't post a lot at other forums, but I do a lot of reading (at Delphi I have maybe 60-70 posts, lol).

Anyway, my mom told me to try to cut some of it down since I don't have a life, lol, and so I dropped three Yahoo groups, converted the last 3 into digest form, and resolved not to join those other two boards.... <_< oh, and to keep my daily visit count to this board below six, lol.

I do love this site, though. :D:lol:

    • Thanks. Still figuring it all out. 
    • I've had plenty of uti's in the past, pre knowing I couldn't eat gluten, so I know how they present in my body. Peeing every 5 minutes a tiny bit with extreme pain. Not fun. They were so bad for awhile I had to take a prophylactic antibiotic every time I had sex, with lots of water. It was like, sorry honey, can't cuddle. Gotta run to take my meds! But thanks for the idea!
    • 1. I think the pain is more diffused than on one side or the other.  2. Sacroiliac joint sounds familiar to me, from when I was doing pt? I think this was something where one side was lower than the other. She would correct it, but it wouldn't stay put for long.  3. I haven't had any scans in ages!  4. Every pair of pants I have are elastic or tie right now! I'm at my mid weight. I guess I've got fat, mid and skinny clothes, lol. I'm losing a bit of weight here and there because one of my meds causes me to have a lower appetite. 5. Are you getting any help from the chiropractor? 6. Thanks so much for this food for thought. I do so hope you find an answer to your issues asap. I hate stuff like this that is seemingly so ambiguous. Much easier to just have kidney stones and get them over with, lol.
    • Many celiacs can eat 10- 20 mg of gluten per day (10-20 ppm in one kilogram of food) without adverse effects.  That is roughly equivalent to 1/16-1/8 teaspoon flour.  More than a trace, but still a small amount.  Some of us cannot handle that amount.
    • Everything with the gluten-free certification must be below 20ppm in a lab test. THAT is much much less then a crumb. Toasters are cheap just get a new ones. If you eat whole foods only your chances are much much less of getting CCed. We normally suggest no gluten-free processed foods (dough, mixes, chips, crackers. breads etc) for the first few months only eating whole foods to boost your healing also remove dairy and oats as they can be hard to process with the initial damage (Diary requires the enzyme lactase which is produced by the tips of the villi in the intestines which are the most damaged).   To make it much easier clean our your microwave really goods, put down some paper towels in the bottom when you use it and get some nordicware microwave cook ware, a new mixing bowl. measure cup, spatula, and some basic eating and cooking utensils and you can start fixing stuff that way starting off without worry. I love steamed veggies, omelettes, etc done this way so tender and easy to digest.  I might also suggest using freezer/butcher paper for a clean prep surface starting off also makes clean up a breeze since you just trash it when done.  You can get the rest of you appliances, pots, pans and everything else changed over later. And this makes it simple to get started....PS crockpot liners are a life saver and making huge pots of stew, or roast in them from raw ingredients is super simple and you can eat on it for days.
