President Obama is giving a speech in our Parliament (Canberra, Australia) as I post just now. He is a great public speaker. He fits our laid back style very well!

Will be glad when all the helicopters and fighters clear out of the airspace though :lol:

At least it brings some excitement to Canberra......

Don't get me wrong, I love Australia and absolutely loved the architecture in Canberra and the way the city was so perfectly planned and laid out. But Canberra was sooooooo quiet. The city was dead after 5:00 and on weekends. But, I admit, I was only there for a week....

I won't ever ever ever mention politics or politicians ever ever ever again on this forum. I promise :blink::lol:

We're a pretty apathetic bunch here is Australia when it comes to politics. Mandatory to vote but some ridiculous amount of people who dont or don't both ticking a box. So.. I hadn't anticipated the response. Was just an otherwise boring ol' day in Canberra :D

When were you in Canberra HelpMe (but hopefully with a new name soon)?

At 3.5% unemployment a lot of Aussies don't mind about the rest :D

oh and the Irish like it here at the moment.. infact lots of Europeans like it too. mmm and Canadian. More and more South Americans in town. Asia Pacific. Africa. Middle East. Not a lot of folk from Iceland yet but they will come.

One of the rules here is that you must respect other people.

That rule applies to identifiable persons who may not be members of the board. That includes President Barack Obama.

Whether you like him or not, this is not the place to judge him.

Good rule Peter!

You guys must have spent a lot of time in Canberra walking around in circle and around roundabouts:)

There is loads going on around Canberra in Autumn and especially Spring. Winter is hybernation and summer is at the coast. It is one of those places that you really need to know a local to know what is going on around town. Another problem is that a lot of people visit the Australian capital and expect it to be big and busy like WashingtonDC, London, Beijing etc. And a lot of foreigners have the Sydney impression of Australia :(

Oh and you do need a car. Public transport disaster IMO. no offence to busdrivers ;)

Canberra boring? I am absolutely certain, Helpme, that you have NOT ever been to Ottawa.. . . .. . .. we make virtually every other capital city seem like Mardi Gras....

It is such a long bloody trip for my family and me, and that's why we haven't been yet. One day we are coming Down Under -- I have vowed this! We have good friends just outside of Perth.

Just need to wait for an enormous tax return... . . .....or inheritance...... :rolleyes:.....

And hey, ya never know -- in all of the nightmarish challenges that have faced President Obama in the past three years, his skyrocketing stress level may have triggered the onslaught of an autoimmune attack and subsequent symptoms.... . .. he may well have dropped in here! .. . . .. ..IN FACT.........(((((eyes narrowing))))))........we all need to carefully reread diandliam's opening post to this thread.... . .....

....Does the wording, the tone.. . . . ...seem......somewhat........presidential?.....

Yup, methinks that diandliam is President Obama. Craftily feeling out his general popularity.. . .. ...quite brilliant, actually. Who would suspect a celiac forum member posting from Canberra? Yup.....gotta be him.

:lol::rolleyes:

OMG... . . if anyone hits Ottawa with those kind of expectations.. . . ...gaaaaaaaahhh!

    • I had my endoscopy first - I was anemic and having Restless leg syndrome and palpitations.  The doc came out and said "You've got this scalloping of the intestines that we sometimes see in celiac. I took biopsies. I'll order some blood tests" My antibodies were off the charts high. I had no GI symptoms. Pathologically, celiac is divided into 3 stages:  Grade A/Type 1: increased intraepithelial lymphocytes but no villous atrophy Grade B1/Type 2: villi still present but shortened  Grade B2/Type 3: complete villous atrophy Most people that have untreated, symptomatic celiac have some degree of villous atrophy/blunting. But your biopsy still could be celiac. But, I agree with ironictruth. If the labs are positive and you get better with a gluten free diet, I think you have your answer. When I had a repeat endoscopy 15 months later, I still had IELs which apparently can take several years . Or it could be from the NSAIDs I take for my aches and pains...... Let us know what the labs say....
    • A half-time report on what we've learned about each other so far in the Relational Aspects of Food Sensitivities research. The study is geared toward gaining perspective on the perceived impact one adult's food restrictions cause in a household when cohabitating with other adults. It may ultimately yield strategies to address the social and emotional impact of living with food sensitivities. It aims to provide coping strategies, solidarity and empowerment to our community.

    • Feel free to discuss ANYTHING here. Nothing is tmi! We have heard it all. And you can be as dramatic as you like, we will still be here for you.  SSRI's are a bear to come off of. I got off one and for MONTHS I had the zaps in my brain. I must say I did not do it slowly or carefully and put myself in the throngs of withdrawal. Did you get off your med with the help of a doctor? (It's best to do so.)
    • If you do have celiac disease, antibodies can continue to rise and attack for days, week or months after a gluten exposure.   I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Thanks for the thoughtful replies, everybody!  I want to highlight that it's just been almost 4 weeks since I've eliminated gluten (and I've been very strict about it) - prior, I could eat gluten with no issues that like this. A sandwich would rob me of energy, but not in a way I could associate with having eaten the sandwich. How insane that four weeks off of gluten could produce this new exposure reaction for me   1.5 weeks into being gluten-free I felt well enough to taper off my OCD meds and so, while I haven had had any noticible negative reactions, SSRI withdrawals can resemble gluten exposure (although the symptoms I don't think are often delayed) - so I wonder if a weird mix is happening there.  And also... I'm mostly just stunned that my body could react so extremely now to what it used to take with relative ease a mere 26ish days ago. It's good to know this is an actual thing and not me being dramatic about my new eating regimen.   It literally feels like death and like I'll never getting through it - but I'm staying reasonable about it and woke up this morning feeling less terrible (although I've had to make several trips to the bathroom - tmi I know).  Thanks so much!
