It's almost fall here in Northern Maine, leaves are changing, the air is crisp, nightfall comes earlier, and I've managed to get tonsilitis, yet again...it should be a national holiday after all of these years, my contracting tonsilitis marks the beginning of fall and spring each year, how awesome...not. 😳😳 Anyone noticing any fall changes where they are?? I refuse to decorate for another week, or so, well perhaps when I feel better lol (a week or so lol) I <3 fall, it might be my favorite season. If you've never seen Maine in the fall I highly reccomend it, it's absolutely amazing! Mt. Katahdin is absolutely breath taking this time of year! Happy almost Fall to you all!! ☺☺☺

Other than the food (especially seafood) and my friends, the thing I miss most about New England is the leaves in the fall. Not only the color, but what I miss most is the SMELL. A friend actually sends me a box of leaves each fall so I can smell them!

It won't be fall here in South Dakota for quite a while yet. It's still HOT!! Today it's only in the high 70's but it's supposed to go to 90 again later this week. The fire danger is still high. It's unusual for this time of year, but nothing we can do about it.

When fall DOES come it is beautiful. We don't get a lot of reds, mostly every shade of yellow you can think of, from deep gold to bright, almost florescent yellow. The Needles Highway and Spearfish Canyon are a lot like the Kankamangus Highway in New Hampshire - it's where all the leaf peepers go, but the traffic isn't nearly as bad.

I noticed a bit of red and yellow in the trees yesterday, when out for a drive. Of all the season transitions, this is both my most favorite and my least fvorite. It's the prettiest, best weather, and the SMELL! I'm so with you caselynn. I love walking in the fall so much. But it's also a transition to cold, my least favorite season. Blechh... Stupid CT snow. I know they get more snow in Maine, but at least in Maine they know how to plow.....

We've had leaves changing for quite awhile already. Our night lows are getting down to only 6-7 Celsius. And you think Maine and Conneticut winters are bad - they are nothing like ours here in Alberta! We have snow on the ground for a good six months and the temperatures are often -40C OR -40F for weeks on end. Our vehicles have square tires, even when in the garage, and our eyelashes freeze in 90 seconds. It is just not right! :angry: But I am enjoying Autumn while I can. We go to Croatia for a month soon - when we return it will be winter here. Double :angry: . Oh, well. At least our winters kill off many insects! :D Have to look at the bright side...

2 reasons CT winters are bad: because of the deplorable disorganization of the plowing system. And, I used to work in the industry of wrecked accident vehicles. Yeah, people in CT have NO IDEA HOW TO DRIVE!!!! You're taking your life in your hands to drive from late November to early April. Well, anytime really, but boy does it get worse in the weather...

So, it's really got nothing to do with the weather. You totally win there.

Bunnie, I WISH our roads here were plowed as well as they were in Connecticut! In my town they don't plow if there is less than four inches on the road, and if it falls on a weekend they don't plow at all! (They don't want to pay the overtime.) The state roads get plowed, but none of the city streets. And they don't use salt at all. That's good for the cars and the environment, but really bad when you get to the stop sign at the bottom af the hill and it is glare ice. They don't even drop some sand! (too expensive) I have many times, slid right through that stop at the end of my street and right into traffic. And I can't tell you how many times I have slid down the big hill on the way to my house, backward or sideways, while cars climbing up it steer around me.

I'm fortunate that we don't get much snow here. In the eight years I have lived here we have only had one major storm. It dropped two feet of snow on a Sunday, and by Tuesday it had all melted. But we do get two or three inches frequently and every year I swear I'm going to get studded snow tires. And every year something else comes up so I can't afford them.

Haha oh you guys are cracking me up! Plowing is a disaster everywhere I think, but I must admit, most people know how to drive in the snow here...after the first couple storms that is! I only like snow for the first couple storms, I guess until Christmas is over, then I'm ready for spring lol so I pack up and visit my brother in Tampa! It's a pretty decent winter getaway, if I may say so myself! As for the cold, we get -40F from time to time, most days are 0- -20 or so, theres always a flippin wind chill 😖last winter was rather warm, 20's a lot...heat wave!! Haha it usually lasts around 6 months,Nov - April, but I prefer less haha! As for right now, it's still 70ish during the day and 50's at night....winter is coming, ereekkkkkk!!!!!!

    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
