Isn't she sweet! There goes that inheritance. :lol:

I was so stunned and flattered when my grand niece saw a pic of me from 20 years ago and pointed and said "hey, that's Auntie!"....I gave her my car. (she is 6)

Yes, she is sweet! And helped me clean yesterday...she needed more money to spend at the beach next week. tongue.gif

Out of the mouths of babes...your grand niece must be a sweetie, too. laugh.gif

I haven't seen any older folks pipe in yet.

(we're the young'ns ....right?? unsure.gif )

When I hit 40, I decided to start counting backwards, so.... I'm 25.

I'll take the honors at 68. Ooops, can't remember anything else. Something you young'ns can look forward to. :)

I've recently turned 30. Given than in my home country that's the highest grade you can get in college, I just say I've reached near perfection. From next year on, I'll just say 30 cum laude ;) People usually think I am 22 or so, though. And I personally feel like I'm still that age.

For me...age is truly just a number.

When I turned 47 last May - I felt like a very ill 87 year old.

As 48 approaches - I'm feeling better than I did at 18.

Oh and I've always looked younger than I am - which has been both an advantage and disadvantage at different times. Now, I must say I am very pleased that I look much younger than many of my friends ;) Hubby is only two years older than me and folks think he is more like ten -- he hates it -- I love it.

Hi

I'm 51 (had to work it out from date of birth as I make a point of not remembering) but I'm sure there is some mistake with it as I have never felt my age.

Kind of got stuck in 20's/30's and haven't moved on in my mind.

I mean, 51 ?????????????? that can't be right :ph34r: !

I am roughly 15.5 stone, hard to tell precisely, the scale is broke! Made kind of a groaning sound last time I used it.

That's about 215 lbs.

6'1" or 185 CM

55 solar orbits for the Earth since I was spewed forth.

Four-eyed or wear glasses if you are not a grade schooler.

Haley's comet has passed us twice since I was breathing air, once on the way in and once on the way out.

I have 3 living sisters and two living brothers.

And a cat, Muffin. Meow! :)

After my mom turned 40, she always told people she was celebrating the anniversary of her 39th birthday.

I just celebrated the 9th anniversary of my 39th birthday.

Perhaps I'll switch to dog years . . . I'm almost 7.

I think along the same lines as your mom. I celebrate anniversaries too. In May I will be celebrating the 19th anniversary of my 29th birthday!

Oh my goodness, I've lost track of my age! I first put 20th anniversary then thought, no that makes me going on 49. Put in 18th, and that makes me turning 47.

LOL then I actually had to count the decades then use my fingers to add the additional years from my birth year to figure out what my age actually is! How sad is that? LOL

I've had this exact conversation with myself - hubby has too and he doesn't have celi brain fog to blame ;)

Just curious about the average age of the c.com users.

 

61 and proudly wearing purple!!! My DH is 11 years younger. Do I get to subtract that from my age since he's keeping alive and young?

Loweee!!! I didn't know you were a cougar! ;)

 

Just turned 54 and proud of it. I have no problem telling my age, especially at work (high school). Gotta keep those high school boys in line. I was told by one recently that I look like a student (Just a little bragging, but at my age, I'm entitled) :P

    • First degree relatives of celiacs should be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms & immediately if symptoms present since celiac can present at any age. Celiac affects every cell in the body & inflammation is common. My inflammation began in my lower back and the bend of my leg (on the back side of the knees). It progressed to literally everywhere. You name it, back, neck, arms, legs, ankles, hips, wrists, fingers. Excruciating pain as well as swelling. So excruciating that opiates didn't even phase it. I just had to bear it. I would take ice packs & use them until the area was pure D numb. You're never supposed to leave ice on that long but if I hadn't then I would have shot myself. I can not begin to describe the intensity of the pain. The last year before diagnosis, I was sure that within a year, I would be confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of my life. Now, 5.5 years gluten free, I can't tell you the last time I took a Tylenol or any other anti inflammatory. In fact, I'm not on any meds at all. Nothing.
    • Thanks for all that info and the links.  It would be such a relief if I could know what is causing the fever, and that maybe it will go away as I stay gluten-free.  Both my gastro dr and rheum dr said to still stay gluten-free even though I apparently don't have celiac.  They are saying to give it 2-3 months to see how I feel then.  My fever has been down to around 99.9 the past two days, instead of over 100 and 101 like it's been since February.  That is the most exciting thing so far.  My stomach is not as severe or bad, but certainly not great, and I don't feel out of the woods at all concerning that yet.  I still hope to feel a lot better as more time goes by without gluten....I hope.  I seem to get bloat and also discomfort in my ribs more in the evening, even if I ate the same thing at lunch.   I started a food journal.  I guess I need to keep being patient. My rheum dr wants to see the journal in October when I see her again. She said she loves detective work.  It sounds like we all need to become food and symptom detectives when dealing with this.  Now if we could only get an NCIS episode where they investigate how gluten can "murder" our stomachs, and figure out a cure for gluten issues, besides going gluten-free.  It actually hasn't been too bad so far, other than foods that you are iffy or unsure about with all sorts of weird ingredients listed in it.  The internet and this site here helps a lot with some of that.  Luckily there is a whole lot we can still eat, but corn and corn products are an iffy for me too at the moment, and my dr suggested trying to avoid soy, and that xanthan gum, and a few things like that. Only thing that has shown in my bloodwork so far is chronic inflammation that may mean an underlying autoimmune disease.  Ya, I've been hearing "it seems like something autoimmune" for the past few decades.  It'd kind of be helpful to figure out exactly what.  I'm so tired of being tired.  I am sure you all can relate to that.  You just want to wake up and feel good.  
    • HEB organics does not bother me at all. Their plain one has to be boiled before I can drink it so I tend to use it in moderation in cooking...it also has xantham gum which explained that issue. MALK gives me no issues (Local Only Brand I think). Used to drink something called Mooala but could not find it unsweetened after my UC dia.  Almond Breeze is next up but I can only drink about a cup of it before I start getting burping issues, silk bothers me the least but still causes some issues. Silk cashew is alright and I use it all the time with NO issues at all...but I use it in cooking and do not think I have ever used it without boiling it first either in a icecream base or mixing it in a soup, cheese sauce, or adding a bit to eggs for fluff.   Hmm there is one other brand of macadamia milk that dose not bother me and Good Karma Flax milk I have NO issues with....been a good 6 months since I had any though. http://malkorganics.com/products/   https://www.heb.com/product-detail/h-e-b-organics-unsweet-vanilla-almond-milk/1741526 ^ Two that give me the least issues  
    • Oh goodness me so do you guys bother to get histamine level diagnosed or do you just treat it as you did the food diary ? taking note of high histamine time of year/ season and diet into your seasonal food diet? I'm pretty good at rotating foods I've done that longer than I've known about my issues from a nutritional standpoint I rotated which is why until the gluten challenge derailed my immune system entirely. it was challenging enough to do that gluten challenge I am not really up for more testing. I have symptoms of IC, POTS, fibromyalgia, and now you reveal that yes histamine threshold are part of the celiac autoimmune party bag too. how do all branches of medicine not find this group the most intriguing group of people ever? Really?Or Do you just all avoid them and go on your merry way? Ennis - what almond milk can you drink ? the almond milk 3 we tried/ bought prior to making my own (had unlabeled ingredient  fortified and thickeners corn derived added. ) I was shocked to call and discover it had it in (not labeled as it was corn not top 8) it finally explained why the right elbow joint hurt but it was a small enough derived amount of derived  corn not to trigger the Full blast corn intolerance symptoms. For this reason and now the orange juice incident I'm really leery of unidentified corn or corn derivatives or highly processed any additive for they are prevalent in processed land.  
    • Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms. I keep one under the desk and pedal on it for hours a day, really helps with my restless leg issues and stress (just gotta keep moving or I start feeling like a panic attack is coming on trapped by life like a rat in a cage. If you need to know were to find the ground cocoa nibs look up crio bru, they sell it as a coffee replacement for $23 for 1.5lbs they have different origin and different roast levels so you can get different flavored cocoa nibs I get several and mix them up.
