Spilled Milk? Seriously?!

So I promised my hubby I wouldn't tell anyone yet that he agreed to having another baby(except on this forum), so I'm sorry if I'm boring you guys, but I just have to vent this somewhere!

We just got back Saturday night from vacationing in small towns, and I was really looking forward to eating more than just canned gluten-free soup for a change. Yesterday morning, I wanted something quick so I poured myself a bowl of Chex but the milk soured while we were gone even though it was not past it's expiration. I was so frustrated I slammed the milk down on the counter, forgetting that I had not yet put the cap back on. Some of it spashed on the wall, but I was so hungry, I was more concerned with making myself some eggs instead of cleaning it up. It actually felt relieving to make a mess in my frustration anyway.

So, after arguing all day about him blaming me for not checking the messages on our cell phone (he missed several calls from his boss while we were away), he tells me last night that he doesn't think it's a good idea for us to have three kids at all because he just couldn't believe that I didn't want to clean up the milk that morning. Are you kidding me?! :o I couldn't make him believe that I was going to clean it up and that at the time, it was more important that get food into my stomach. (I have a tendency to be a bit hypoglycemic.) I couldn't even talk about it with him. I'm so upset, I've been giving him the silent treatment ever since.

I think I might agree with him. He stood there and watched your troubles and didn't help? He blames you because he didn't check for messages from his boss? He is too immature or mean to have more kids with.

Tell him to grow up! :o

He may just feel over-whelmed being responsible for 2 kids and afraid he can't take care of them much less, another.

But I still think he needs to grow-up!

Yeah, that thought crossed my mind last night while I was fuming. Do I really want to have another baby with someone who can be so irrational?! I really do want us to have another one though. He can be really great most of the time. It's just when he gets stressed, he doesn't make any sense. We had such a wonderful week in North Carolina enjoying the leaves turning colors. Yesterday, all the happy relaxed feelings were blown apart. I've been so irritated thinking about it all day, that it was strange to have my mom call this afternoon to tell me what a great visit it was and how nice Leo was to her.

It sounds like he was trying to get back at you for the phone messages thing, which is immature and petty. Silent treatments are NOT going to improve your marriage. That's just passive-aggressive and breaks down communication rather than improving it. Have you tried falling back on the "when you say ____, it makes me feel ____" pattern? It can be very effective.

(My marriage fell apart when he started saying "I didn't say that" in response. Rewriting history is abusive and crazy-making.)

    • The follow up report to the colonoscopy can't diagnose, that would come from the dr/consultant. They're just flagging the high ttg and possible celiac to you and your Drs. Good practice all round  
    • I was just diagnosed a little over a month ago, so I'm not sure if I'm the best person to reply, but if I were you I would get the panel redrawn and make sure they include EMA and DGP.    I am a 24 year old female and had a similar (although not nearly as drawn out) situation about a year before my diagnosis. I had been having symptoms for several years with no answer, and went to another primary care doc who wanted to test me. I'm not sure if she ordered the wrong thing by mistake, or didn't know enough about it, but she ordered 1 test-- just the TTG IgG (instead of IgA) and it was positive. I was referred to a GI who said that test wasn't the best one, but he would do a biopsy anyway. It was negative so he said I didn't have celiac. I wish I had asked him to redo the whole panel back then, but I hadn't done enough research at that time. This past December I went to another doctor for the same problems, still trying to find an answer, and my blood work showed anemia and other vitamin deficiencies, so I asked her to run the full celiac panel and I was positive on everything. I went to a different GI to have the biopsy done it was positive (he said he would be very thorough so nothing was missed and took 11 biopsies).    Anyway, long story, but if I had pushed to have all the tests done and found the right doctor, I would have had my diagnosis a year earlier. Keep fighting until you get all the answers you need (and before you give up gluten for good). I've read some posts on this board of people who are only positive on the DGP. Its interesting that you had a high positive before and now its been low or negative, but I would think that has to mean something. 
    • Palvyre-  There are a lots of things that contribute to osteoporosis. I am wondering if you had your testosterone levels checked as well? There are many treatments for osteoporosis, depending on the cause. Fosamax (bisphosphanates) are certainly not the only ones! Hormones, Prolia, Forteo and there are several new ones ready to be approved by the FDA right now. If you haven't seen an endocrinologist, you could consider it. I figure it never hurts to ask a specialist a question.  They could say there's no extra treatment right now or they could know of something that was meant just for someone like you. My fourth grade teacher taught me there are never any dumb questions! Good luck!    
    • An antibody flare up will keep causing damage for weeks or months after a exposure even if you have no symptoms, I am sure someone else will show you the document ion on this on another post. My suggestion is invest in a testing kit or a Nima kit to test stuff if you have to. Pack some sealed nuts, seeds, dried fruits, bars, or a container of meal replacement shake for the trip. Nuts.com for nuts, Gerbs for dried fruit and seeds, and I would suggest kind, julian bakery, or many other bars, as for shakes pioneer labs makes a celiac shake, MRM makes some good shakes and there are several others.
    • Hi, I'm a young 20-something living a gluten-free life in the UK. Socialising can be very difficult as I don't like wine and don't trust the distillation process used on liqueurs such as Jack Daniels (previously my favourite option). Does anyone with a severe gluten sensitivity have any trusted mainstream brands of alcohol which are 100% gluten-free (aside from wine)? Preferably ones that can be found in a typical UK pub.  Thanks in advance!
