Yes, celiac3270 and I both live in Boston now, but he's finishing up his first semester of senior year at Harvard, so he's been working a lot so we haven't had time to hang out, but still keep in touch and will see each other soon! Yes I graduated, degree in chemistry (I don't really know how I did it), I'm taking some time off enjoying life before applying to medical and PHD schools for graduate work, so hopefully starting one of those in the next few years!

It's nice to hear that things are going well. :)

so. Over the summer I made blackberry fruit leather. Basically you squish up blackberries, smoosh them through a colander to remove the seeds, and leave pans of juice sitting on the picnic table for days, allowing the juice to pick up all manor of pine needle. Being miss super-frugal, I didn't want to just toss this mass of blacberry seed pulp that I had, so I divvyied it up into jars and poured in some vodka. Left it in a dark closet, turning over every few weeks (when I remembered) to mix.

Today I poured myself a glass, and I'm happy to report that blackberry seed vodka is quite tasty. I don't think I added any sugar, and it doesn't taste sweet, just a slightly fruity, slightly tart taste.

Can't wait to try the plums preserved in vodka. :rolleyes:

Never guess who is doing a gluten free trial--Mark (my husband for anyone who doesn't know). Seems to be helping greatly his reflux and a couple other things. I'm packing him a gluten-free lunch every day :rolleyes:

Way to go, Wolfie! :) That's a great opportunity to educate people -- I'll bet several students left your presentation thinking, "Gee, that could explain my migraines, constipation, depression and rashes... . . ..I need to get that blood work done".....

Well, we have been doing some out-of-season spring cleaning around here. It is our turn to host the family Christmas dinner for my family. We are slowly sorting through stuff, some of which is related to our now-closed retail business. We filled the garage with gems and detritus prior to closing the store in late June. July was a rest period, and from early August to early September we did some travelling, and met up with a few pholks phrom psillyville.

Today marked a major milestone. For the phirst time in six months, there is enough room to park one of our vehicles in the garage. Tonight, the Ford will be sheltered. :D

Wow, a VEHICLE in the GARAGE? I have been my house less than a year, but it never crossed my mind that was possible (genuinely :)). Well done, good work.

Visiting psyliville folks sounds fun.

Hope sorting business stuff out is helping.

Detritus is one of my favorite words. I considered having a band called Clam Detritus. Then remembered my lack of musical talent

Wow :o

We eat mostly gluten-free at home and when we go to PF Changs we all order gluten-free so we can share. So a teenager & a Hub plus a college student when he is home....not quite the same but the 3 of them probably equal 1 whole gluten-free person?

So we added soy back in to Tim's diet and he seems fine on it after 3 months. Now we are trying mammal meat, and he is sick. So is he sick, or is he reacting to the meat? GRRRR.

Dave is the only non-celiac in the house hence he eats mostly gluten-free and has seen health benefits over the past three years. He has increased his bicycle riding to hundreds of miles per month -- before my diagnosis he was fit but packing a lot of unexplained weight -- sound familiar?

Yay Shadow!!! It is amazing how much easier it is to public speak to a subject you know well. I agree choosing this topic whenever possible is helpful to many. My son has given three Celiac speeches now. One in HS and two in college.

Parking in the garage - congratulations!!!! I have not parked in our "shop" since our first rental home in Santa Barbara back in '85. Somehow that garage addition has got lost in the game of life with my contractor hubby.

Careful Mw -- you may have a Silly visitor one day ;) I am onto another piece of my silly health puzzle that docs and labs don't test for in the US :blink: -- believe it. Unfortunately I don't have the funds necessary to visit my friends in Oz or Europe so I'll figure my way around our silly health care system.

That makes three of us here, Clay and I are on the list, too. How many more of us are there??? :blink:

Dave is mostly gluten-free - he does eat out about once a month or with clients when necessary.

Yeah! Blame it on us!

Edited -- doh lost this one in the multiquote haze --

Add Dave to the partial group.

forgot to also say -- do celiacs attract other sillys? Dave's Mom had Sjogren's Auto Hep and RA -- no wonder our kids hit the AI jackpot

:(

So sorry to hear Tim is having a tough time reintroducing food....awful when you don't know it's food or just a virus -- also -- I had a delayed reaction when I added the few foods that passed my elimination test last year. Don't want to suggest re-removing soy - just it is tough to figure it out. :(

So sorry to hear Tim's having trouble re-introducing foods. I went through the elimination diet (only eating rice, vegetables and some fruit). It got extremely boring. Re-entering has to be a slow process but it's SO frustrating. Kareeng helped me a lot when I was going through it. You might find he had=s an easier time with chicken than red meat. Just know we're all pulling for him and sending lots of positive energy. It took me three years but now I'm able to eat a wide range of for. I don't seem to enjoy meat. I'll have an occasional steak. Thai food is tasty and tolerable to most.Keep us posted and remember we're here for you and your family.

No, but "mammal meat" seems to be, based on my understanding, a category that if you can not stand one, you likely will have issue with all of them. We might try some other mammals at a later date if it does turn out to be an issue with mammal meat, but for now we looking at the rest of his list and trying to get some relief :)

In addition to the garage event, I have been working on a replacement for my slowly dying desk computer, which is over nine years old and struggles. The optical drive no longer works, and there has been no sound for many months. This post is coming from a new machine which UPS delivered today. I am just getting it going. I updated IE to IE8 so I could download and install Chrome, from which this post is coming. Tonnes more stuff to install and configure. Byte me!

Nine years...you beat my record...I collect everyone in the family's cast offs and make my kids build their own -- before I get shipped off to the "bad mom island" they do have three year old netbooks for school use.

    • Your first post stated that it took you 7 days of continuously eating gluten to get symptoms. So maybe it's not related to gluten at the hospital at all? Maybe you picked up an illness from the hospital? if I hadn't read your first post I'd say that the hospital food probably glutened you. Imho they don't do a great job at following dietary restrictions. Which may have still happened, and your symptoms kicked in faster this time. fyi any gluten exposure, even a crumb, kicks in the autoimmune response for celiac.
    • Hospitals and the ER....will normally ignore your dietary requirements with celiac. If they gave you so called gluten-free food...it had gluten. You have to have your own brought in or ask for plain whole foods. I wear medical dog tags with emergency contact info, allergies, blood type, and medical info on them. And my emergency contacts have been told where I keep emergency room stashes...IE Julian Protein Bar, MRM meal shakes to take up there if I get stuck in the hospital.
    • Hello- I was DX Celiac 2 years ago.  Last week I had a terrible accident, broke ankle and had to be taken to emergency. I was pumped full of drugs mostly Versed and Fentanal  via IV. After the usual couple days of constipation following these sort of drugs I began having GLUTENED intestinal issues.  I've had non stop bathroom runs for 2 days now and everything about it feels like I've been seriously glutened.  I've done some research but found no conclusive answers.  Did any of those things stir up my Celiac disease and cause me to have an autoimmune response? Has anyone had any similar experiences they can share with me?  This is my first post.  Thank you
    • All the issues you said came up after going gluten-free. Three points
      1. Are you sure you eating gluten free? If you eat out good chance your getting CCed, and is everything your eating really gluten free? There are many that are iffy on the market now days and CC can get in on some of the oddest aspects like shampoo, make up, lotion, medication, sauces, spices. etc.
      2. Sounds like your have deficiency issues, what are you eating? Your supposed to eat a varied diet when gluten free, most gluten free processed foods are not enriched...most gluten food is essentially sprayed with vitamins. SO you need to eat a varied diet eating leafy greens meats, eggs, etc. I myself have other limitations and have to supplement what I would get from these. ALSO celiac makes it where you do not absorb all the nutrients from your food I have 2 suggestion of stuff you NEED to take. Liquid health Stress & Energy, Liquid Health Nurological Support, and Doctors Best Magnesium.... these will help with stress, muscle aches, and energy issues. NOW you might need some other things like D and a few others.
      3. Sugars can cause all kinds of issues I know the issues with the craving.....I can not avoid them myself. I use some sweeteners like erythrol, stevia, monk fruit, etc to avoid the real sugar and the chemical BS ones. I make grain free, dairy free, gluten free baked goods, nut butters and snacks and even make a living off of selling them......I have a focus on making everything super moist as I know that is a huge craving for those of us with this.  Try moving to a healthier option if you can spiking your insulin and glucose levels is going to raise all kinds of havoc and the excess sugars can lead to candida or sibo in your intestines.

      Oh and yeah if you think death is bad we had a member have to get a emergency colonstomy. They ignored it and ate gluten and kept on doing it.....yeah having to poop in a bag sounds worse then death or cancer to me....and those are your other options.
    • Your daughter is only 7 years old.    I believe with a strict gluten-free diet, and some time, she will grow. My daughter was diagnosed at age 10.   When she was younger, she was always tall for her age.   She was in the 90% percentile as a toddler.   When she was finally diagnosed at age 10, we noticed that she did not grow at all for a little over a year, and she was at 25% percentile, and shorter than all her girl friends.   (She used to be one of the taller kids in the class) She is 14 years old now, still growing, and she is catching up with her friends, (no longer the shortest).   She is 5' 3'' right now.   She does not have her period yet, so we hope she will grow another few inches.   If she can be 5' 6", that would be a very good height for a girl. I think your daughter will be fine.  With a strict gluten-free diet, of course.
