Omfreakingawd! Just tried Glutino Genius Bread fer the phirst time. Hands down the best bread I've had since gluten-free. Made grilled cheese sammies, and asked Mark if I was remembering correctly, that this tastes "real"-- he agreed it does. Wow.

I think I left my new official horn there. Hope the movers got it but wish I'd put it back in its case.

Well, we'll have to listen carefully for the sound of your curly horn, Ptaoughmnn, coming from the distance of other threads.. . . ....it could turn up anywhere. Could be in the "Publications" or "Dermatitus herpetiformis" sections.... . . . or in the section where the mods can only go -- you guys keep an eye out, will ya, Paghteigh, POeter, Jyessss et al?....

There's a fracture in the time-space con-psilly-um.

Gawd, 'tis true....my whole life has completely....well, shifted, since the Psillyville closure and restart ... . . . .. ..it all feels different, somehow......like the grand vertical hold has been tampered with....

Hey...what ever happened to the vertical hold? No one ever speaks of it anymore, and none of my TVs ever have this flipping picture anymore. My kids would not know what I'm talking about, I realize..... . . ...

I kinda miss it, actually...

:huh:

Hold that Victrola.....

Vinyl is back! My 19 year old is collecting now -- bought him a turn table last Christmas with USB connection so they can transfer their vinyl to digital...yep...stay tuned we are not as old as we thought - well that may be going a bit too far ;)

The current vinyl comes in a wide variety of colors, transparent, opaque, etc. -- not the solid black of yesteryear - kinda cool.

We kept our turntable and it is inserted in our "stack" for all those old vinyls... no USB though :( It gets to be hard to stay up-to-date as PeOter found out recently. Especially when you get to be of a certain age and not that hip anymore (as I am finding out :P ) Lots of modern stuph just passes me by, I'm afraid, even stuphh I have in me house!!!

Shrooomie, you constantly surprise me at your knowledge of modern/pop music -- I often read one of your song titles in ANOTHER THREAD (can you IMAGINE? ME, in another thread??), and think, Whoa... . . . ....is that, like, Top 40 rapper stuff? And I ask my kid, who says that indeed it is.

Or maybe you got a wasp with celiac :):o

nah, it acted like it was somewhat drunk.

It's like a mini cross-species celiac quiz! :wacko:

And the answer is .. ... ..[hey what's a King gotta do to get a drumroll around here??????] [Not to be confused w/ a durum roll]

. . . ....Ataxia!

I might be inclined to appoint a Royal Commission . .. . .hmmm .. .the Wasp Ataxia Special Project . .. .yeah, I did it.

Is it the poison or the zapper or a uniquely ratioed combo?

Is the ataxia wasp in throes of death or a superwasp survivor, stumblecrawling away to find a supermate, rendering future EMF attacks innocuous? Yours may be the wasp world's Cornelius in Planet of the Wasps . .. ..

Gotta launch these things early in an administration. Not sure when lame duck/drunk wasp status begins.

My gawd, I am so cool and hip and hot I am afraid to post a pic as my av due to the reactions it may engender. And I am espoused to a super sugar daddy which allows me to spend my days on idle frivolities (and keeping my trophy-wife bod in shape :P (my night-times are of course committed). Think Hugh Hefner and a cool hip playboy bunny (Ewwwww :unsure: ); think.....

:huh:

I am having a hard time coming up with another example; Silvio Berlusconi (no, the sod's a carouser) Jacques Chirac (nah, they're both too corrupt) -- well, anyway...... I is kept (for the moment).

Yes. Clearly a lame duck has either a left- or right-wing injury.

A lame duck can be a very precarious state, whether on the left or the right :rolleyes:

can you tell i'm tired :lol:

At any rate, i did something stupid... i left some water on to boil as a makeshift humidifyer right? It was fine when i last checked on it (like 20mins ago) right? then i start to hear this pop pop sound. I get up and the enamal (which was already weak to begin with) poping off all over the place. Luckily, my pot of soup in front of it had a massive lid on it completely sealing it from the poping enamil going into it. Lucky lucky, i would have had to toss it out otherwise (the lid is about a half an inch bigger than the pot is so it goes over a bit on all sides and it also lips upward, normally this lid is used in a fry pan).

The pot was already ruined by the dishwasher (took the main layer off, leaving a rough texture). So no big loss there (i should still be able to use it as a water pan though, its cast iorn underneath kinda looks like the pot in this http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=40568744&RN=816& (actually my bigger one is exactly like that :lol: )).

soooo glad for the lid on the soup, else i'd be without dinner right now (of course i took the lid off after i fixed the other pots issues just to check :blink: ).

Lesson learned.

I got a little humidifier at CVS for travelling, it's a sound-wave humidifier, no filtration,

you just tip a bottle of water into it and turn it on. It has a little adapter thingy for the

bottles of water. I think it's fantastic. Plus, no boiling! :P

Personally, I do not like those. They leave a film on everything in the room. I do not know what that film is, but I sure rather not breath it in. I much perfer cool mist, even if you have to keep up with the wicking filter.

It does give a cool mist, and I know the film of which you speak- this one has not

done that. I am, however, giving it filtered water. So, I dunno.

    • Hello all! I am new on here, and I was wondering if it worth a look for me to get tested for celiac disease. I've been experiencing severe stomach aches accompanied by issues with loose stool, constant fatigue, lots of infections, worsening of skin on my face, frequent nausea, lots of trouble losing weight. I'm asking because I was feeling better at home from vacation after having a very rough semester at school and I'm not very good at keeping track of what I eat typically, but at home it is mostly vegetables and meat, with the occasional rice thrown in. This morning I had my first bagel in months and was extremely nauseous with severe pains and urges to run to the bathroom.  Do y'all think it is worth a try to get tested for celiac disease or some type of gluten intolerance? I'm so tired of being sick and not knowing why... Thank you <3 
    • LexieA, I agree with Plumbago. The symptom's of low stomach acid and high stomach acid are similar so it is easy to confuse the symptom's of one as the other. Dr. Myatt explains this well in her online article about stomach acid. http://healthbeatnews.com/whats-burning-you/ quoting "But My Symptoms Feel Like Too Much Acid…" Strong stomach acid and pepsin quickly "emulsify" fats and proteins, making them ready for the next step of digestion, passage into the small intestine. When these digestive factors are weak, food remains in the stomach for longer and it begins to ferment. Gas pressure from the fermentation can cause bloating and discomfort and can can also cause the esophageal sphincter to open, allowing stomach contents to "backwash" into the esophagus. Even though weak stomach acid is the central cause of this, even this weak stomach acid, which has no place in the esophagus, will "burn." This burning sensation confuses many people, including doctors, who then "ASSuME" that excess acid is to blame. Too little acid, resulting in slowed digestion, and gas which creates back-pressure into the esophagus is the real cause of almost all "heartburn" and GERD." so  you can see how they can easily be confused for each other. you no doubt are having stomach acid issues but it is because it is too little or too much? Timeline helps us determine which it is. If it happens when we eat something it is already to low to  digest the food we are eating. if eating something cause the heartburn/gerd to improve (especially meat) then your stomach acid is really too high especially if this happens between meals. because eating something will naturally dilute/lower the stomach acid pH. I wrote about my stomach acid being misdiagnosed on my celiac.com posterboy blog. ( have summarized most of what you need to know in this reply but the post is still there if you want to study it more for yourself. if your not taking an antacid now then taking BetaineHCL should improve digestion. If it does then raising your stomach acid by lowering you pH should improve your digestion. study on the best way to take powdered stomach acid before trying this. but I found taking 3 to 4 capsules in the beginning was easier than taking only 1 or 2 in the beginning .. .  until I could back it down to only needing one per meal or now none per meal to aid digestion. which is what we are shooting for.  The place where our body is now producing our stomach acid naturally at a healthy level. if you feel a "warm sensation" in your stomach you have reached a good level. I hope this is helpful. I only know it helped me. *** this is not medical advice but I hope you have as a good experience with it as I did. Usually peopledon't  have a trouble taking BetaineHCL unless they have an ulcer or already taking PPI's which are actually lowering  their stomach acid contributing to a viscous cycle of being locked into taking PPI's long term. if PPIs are taken for more than 6 months they can be almost impossible to stop/quit because of the acid rebound people experience when trying to stop taking them cold turkey and why they recommend stepping back doses by 1/2 gradually so they don't get overwhelmed by the stomach acid your stomach is  able to produce again naturally itself (hopefully). . . if taking betaineHCL jump started your ability to produce stomach acid again. . . if not taking betaineHCL (Powdered Stomach Acid) can replace what the body is missing much like taking a hormone. chris kresser has a good online article on this subject as well. https://chriskresser.com/what-everybody-ought-to-know-but-doesnt-about-heartburn-gerd/ he says it well. quoting chris kresser. "If heartburn were caused by too much stomach acid, we’d have a bunch of teenagers popping Rolaids instead of elderly folks. But of course that’s the opposite of what we see." **** this is not medical advice but I hope it is is helpful. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2:7 "Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things".  
    • Lex_ I agree with Ennis_Tx. You need to take some Magnesium.  It works best as a Magnesium Citrate or Magnesium Glycinate. Magnesium Citrate are easiest to find. Take it 2/day for the first couple weeks to see how much more energy you have. Then you can take it with each meal or 2/day and one hour before bedtime if it is not convenient to take it at work. If it is working you (right form of as a Magnesium Citrate or Glycinate) you will will experience vivid dreams. And wake up with enough energy to take on the day. **** this is not medical advice but it really helped my chronic fatigue symptom's. It is good for leg cramps too also known as charley horse's. posterboy,
    • I am sorry that I was not clear.    I only mentioned  your diagnostic background, not to discredit you, but because without any lab results (other than a positive gene test), how can you be sure that gluten (shampoo containing wheat protein) was the actual culprit (not a guess) of your symptoms?  It is common for celiacs to receive follow-up antibodies to monitor their dietary compliance.  This is not perfect, but it is the only tool in the toolbox for now.   My husband has been gluten free 12 years prior to my diagnosis.  He went gluten free per the poor advice of his GP and my allergist.  So, I am not trying to discount your diagnosis at all.  I am just trying to see if other lab tests (e.g. liver tests that were elevated previously for you when you were still consuming gluten) were measured after your shampoo exposure.   I am curious because I have had issues over the last year.  I was glutened last January, had the flu, a tooth infection, a cold and a tooth extraction, three rounds of antibiotics (verified to be gluten free) within a month or so.  Like, you, I am very careful.  I have no idea as to how I was exposed.   The last time I ate out was a year ago and even then it was at at 100% gluten free restaurant.   My hubby did not have any symptoms at this time.  He is like my canary.    I went to my GI and my DGP IgA was off the charts even some three months later.   My celiac-related symptoms diminished in three months, but I struggled with autoimmune hives for six.  My GI offered to do an endoscopy in the summer.  Instead I chose to follow the Fasano diet.  I still was not feeling well.  In December, my antibodies were 80.  They were either on a decline or they were increasing again.  I opted for the endoscopy.  My biopsies revealed a healed small intestine (you could see the villi on the scope too).  But I was diagnosed with chronic gastritis and had a polyp removed.   So, all this time I thought my celiac disease was active, but it was NOT the source of my current gut issues.   Again, my apologies.  I just wanted to know how you know for SURE that hydrologized wheat protein from someone else’s shampoo and conditioner could reach your small intestine to trigger an autoimmune reaction.  Maybe, like me, Gluten was not the actual culprit.    
    • The reason I think it was the shampoo? Process of elimination. Our house is almost entirely gluten free (except for this shampoo which slipped through the cracks until I read the ingredient label). My husband has bread that he eats at lunch, but he practices something that resembles aseptic technique from the lab when he's making his sandwiches. He's been doing this for years now and I've never been glutened from within my home. The previous week I hadn't eaten out, I cooked all my food, I don't eat processed food and I never eat something from a shared facility.  Usually if I get glutened it's a single dose sort of thing and it follows a very predictable course, to the point where I can estimate when I got glutened within 24 hours of when it happened. However, this time, I was feeling achy and arthritic and moody for about a week before it got bad enough for me to recognize it as the result of gluten exposure, at which point we went searching and found the shampoo (and conditioner, which does leave more of a residue than shampoo), which he immediately stopped using. Within three days I was feeling back to normal (which is the usual course for me).  Sure, it could have been something else, but I know how sensitive I am, and, as silly as it sounds, it was the only thing that made sense. The other thing you said: You're correct, mine was not a rock solid celiac diagnosis, but I have no doubt that gluten is the problem. I was SICK. I went through two different gluten challenges in an effort to get a more straightforward diagnosis during which I was a barely functioning human being. Consuming gluten may not have given me blunted villi or elevated antibodies, but it did inflame my gut, and actually started to damage my liver. If you look at my diagnosis thread, I had elevated liver enzymes, which have been correlated with celiac disease in the past. There was no alternative explanation for the liver enzymes, he checked EVERYTHING.  I too am a scientist and I have spent a lot of time with the literature trying to make sense of my condition.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26150087 I also have no doubt that gluten was damaging my intestines in some way, as any prolonged gluten exposure in the past has inevitably been followed by a severe FODMAP intolerance that goes away once I've eliminated the gluten and given myself a month or so to heal.  I also had a very fast diagnosis following the onset of symptoms (~1 year) so it's possible that the disease never had a chance to manifest as full celiac. I wasn't willing to eat gluten long enough to find out. As a result of my diagnosis, hazy as it was, I am *meticulously* gluten free. It is not a fad for me. I don't occasionally cheat. It is my life, for better or worse. All of that being said, I'm not sure what my diagnosis has to do with your question. You say you're not trying to be rude, but when you bring up my diagnosis in a thread that has nothing to do with diagnostics, it seems like you're trying to undermine the validity of my disease or the validity of my input in this forum. If I'm being hypersensitive, I apologize, but that's how you came across on my end. I'll admit that the fact that my diagnosis wasn't more straight forward does make me a bit defensive, but I promise that even if I didn't have a solid diagnosis, I interact with the world as though I did, and I'm not out there giving people the wrong idea about celiac disease by not taking it seriously. If there was a connection between your question and my diagnostics that I missed I would appreciate you giving me the chance to better understand what you were asking.
