Mommida brought up some old memories of mine of when my cousin and I use to stay up all night making up funny words whenever we got together. I was wondering if anyone else here could be creative enough to do that (it's been years for me... :rolleyes: ) The 3 that I remember the most were:

Rimbobadoobee

Clibberdipple

Terapoothamite

Unfortunately, it may not be quite as funny typed out as spoken, but I thought we might give it a try. :P

I think we make up a few words on this forum:

Glutenous

Glutiginous

Glutenateor

My son used to call cookies " coochies"

A " Goo rag" - the cloth diaper you put on shoulder so a baby can " goo" on it.

My son use to say pista for pizza, yourgut for yogurt, and waygle soup for swim suit (waygle meant water).

My family used to add the suffix -age on to a lot of words, ala "drainage".

If it's snowing, there's a lot of snowage going on.

I got sick at the local pizza joint because there was a lot of glutenage in the air.

I'm having trouble healing because there is so much cornage in our food supply.

I have kept my sanity through all of this because of all the supportage you folks on the forum have given me.

Ok, maybe it's not so funny, but it used to crack my family up. Sometimes there was so much laughage going on it was hard to breathe.

Husband and 6 year old: yogrit = yogurt

My 6 year old when he was a toddler: garjib = garbage he was facinated with the garbage man and the garbage can. He still likes to pick up random "stuff" when we are out and about.

My 10 year old when he was in the 1st grade: N = Ian There was a new kid that came and he came home and told me there was a new kid in his class and his name was N. I asked him if the kid's name maybe was Ian. He was so insistant that his name was N because that is what his teacher said. I realized that the teacher was saying Ian, but with her accent he heard it as "N".

Me messing up: heart arrest = combination of heart attact and cardiac arrest(I guess I was tired)

Here are some I hear a lot at work:

diarearer = diarrhea

vomiking = vomiting

testes(not the male appendage :blink::lol: but pronounce the "es" like in houses) = tests

MIR scan = MRI scan

mammieogram = mammogram

Not exactly 'making up new words' but I have had a few giggles lately with my 9y/o sons interpretation of song lyrics.

"Gotye" has a song titled 'Somebody that I use to know' which is one of my favourites at the moment.

http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/gotye/somebodythatiusedtoknow.html Look it up on youtube great video & interesting song.

When it comes on the radio Gotye sings 'But you didn't have to cut me off' but my Liam sings "you didn't have to cut me up" and does all the hand actions of chopping off my arm. :blink::lol:

    • This - I agree with all of this. I have also twigged that if oats are a problem then certified processed gluten free food is out. And I got really sick from drywall. It's such a relief to hear this as there was a time when I was feeling like an alien for thinking these things. Well I agree 99.9%. I had a skin problem, possibly DH, which got better when I gave up gluten, improved further when I gave up processed foods but it wasn't until I stopped eating dry beans that I stopped getting any flares. I am also sensitive to egg though (although that does something different to my skin) so I'm a bit a skin-reactive person. Could be worth cutting it out just to see if that helps?
    • Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. Once I get glutened I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I have carbs once a day rather than every meal to save time. I can hear in your tone this tired, fed up tone that I recognise so well from when I get glutened. I know what it's like to dream of living in a far away gluten free bubble. I felt like that but after a couple of months (which were a hard adjustment) I got to a stage of knowing what I needed to do. Your medical background will help you methodically work out what you need to cut out and what is safe and you will get there. Stick with college. Don't let this crappy stage take that away.   The thing that saved me though over everything was finding this article: https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40
    • Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr added on the celiac test and it was indeterminate. So I was sent for endoscopy and colonoscopy. I consumed gluten for just over two weeks, then went back to my grain free, dairy free diet. I saw my Dr this am and she said my bowels were healthy, that the Dr had taken 'several' samples and that all is well on both ends.  (No celiac, but also not H Pylori, crohn's, etc). She is running all kinds of other bloodwork, because I am still feeling terrible, and obviously the assumption I had made was that it was celiac. I'm going to stay off gluten for now, in hopes that I'll start to feel better. My GI symptoms are worse this week than they have been in ages...so something is up, but apparently I'm healthy??! I am pretty sure my Dr. would not refer me to another GI. She's not the best, but it's very hard to find another Dr. here, especially if you already have a Dr. (Canada) I am going to ask her for a copy of the report though, as well as the rest of the bloodwork she's sending me for. 
    • This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
    • I'm confused. You don't have celiac? Have you had a blood test or biopsy? Have you been diagnosed with DH?  What were you diagnosed with 9 years ago? If it was celiac or DH why have you only been gluten-free for 6 months? We need a better picture of what's going on here to help you more successfully.
