He actually tries a back-flip, but, unfortunately, turkeys are anatomically unable to back-flip.

Perhaps I could be a knight?

Yeah, he seems about right! I'm going on a week of three hours a night,

don't you get too tired to wake up anymore at some point? What the crap....

PTSD sucks.

Bun, I am gonna be honest with you here. In order to heal, sleep is vital. Vital. I went through an extended period of awful insomnia in the last year to where even Ambien didn't work. I was desperate to sleep, and the only thing that helped was Ativan. Unfortunately, it is also extremely addictive. They say "causes dependency" but I say addicted since it took me 7 months to get off of the small dose I took for probably 6 months.

What did help me is Zoloft. I didn't want to take it, but was out of options and had a professional by then whom I trusted. Took a leap of faith, and within weeks I was sleeping normally and my appetite and interest were back. I take a very small dose--but it made a ton of difference. It doesn't take away your feelings, but gives you (me) the means to have the energy to cope, if that makes any sense.

Try the OTC stuff I suggested on FB, as it was helpful to a couple people I know but if it doesn't cut it I wanted to let you know all this and did not want to do so on FB. ;)

Thanks Patee. I have gone through a couple cycles of not-sleep and it has resolved itself inside of two weeks,

so I'm pretty thankful for that. So far I've just been riding it out when it does happen, if I find myself inside an

extended insomniac sleep cycle I will definitely consider those options.

We posted at the same time! That's great that yours resolves on it's own--hopefully an OTC or similar "home remedy" will offer a bit of relaxation.

Gotta get your sleep! B)

I've tried that counting sheep thing, but they start coming faster and faster and I get all tense trying to keep up. To keep them at a reasonable speed I have to institute military-like strictness, and who can fall asleep whilst keeping sheep in strict formation?

Ahhhh--a nice new fast 'puter! Have phun wif it B) And congrats on cleaning out the garage--we kinda dumped stuff in ours when we moved in, and are now in the process of going through everything, selling the old kitchen appliances, and phiguring out what to do with the rest.

Do you have a salad spinner?? I neeeeeed a salad spinner

:P

I wasn't FOR A MOMENT thinking of anyone roasting our yeti! ... . ....Just other, ya know... . ..wild yetis. . . . .. :huh: . . . .. . . ..... :rolleyes:

We have been LOOKING for the wild yetis at the country house!! Out on the quads. Max is DETERMINED he will find one! There's a way to look at broken tree limbs and determine the difference between Yetis and elk...

Sigh... psillies all have lives... lonely Friday night *sniff....

;)

Mine was a boring Friday night. But it was most welcome since the 24 hours leading up to it weren't so boring :rolleyes:

Ok. This is serious! I sat on the couch for a minute to check my FB and the accidental Kitty sat on my lap. That was 20 minutes ago? My wine glass is about 8 feet away on the counter! help! M is upstairs doing homework and hub is in the basement tying flys!

Text... Send email... I know I'm a few days late but this is what I do to Madeleine :P

...Actually, I kinda want bacon now...

:lol: :lol:

They say it's the vegetarian's gateway drug back into meat. My fav bar in town has bacon night on Wednesdays. At 9:30 you will find a bowl on every table and for every 2 people seated at the bar. Then this very large, jolly man comes at you with a giant stainless steel bowl FILLED with bacon! He fills your bowl, tells you what kind of 'flavor' he's made and then every 15-20 min comes back with ANOTHER bowl of a different flavor! Captain's fav was the 'peanut butter cup'... :unsure:

If it makes you feel any better, I haven't been sleeping either.

The cake and bacon help with that.... :ph34r::D

    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
    • The L-Glutamine may have gluten in it.  Try drinking bone broth daily instead.
