Hmm, you're asking quite a bit there, lady ;) Better call on your good fairies for help, I'd say. Course, you could always say that valium improves your blood pressure (probably does!)

Five year plans?? Dear gawd.... . :unsure: .. .. ...I have trouble planning my day.

I admire so much people who do this....actively map out where they want to be in a set time.

I'm so lucky, and life is currently so great for me, that I guess it's just full steam ahead, trying to keep this fabulous status quo going.

Forty Year Plan: Continuing to keep any and all diabetes complications completely at bay. This has been my life plan for many years, but it's nice to actually see it written out...

Man, it ain't sailing around the globe..... :( . . .. . ....perhaps I could add this to the plan. Not an easily do-able combination, I fear -- very tough to perform constant blood tests and insulin injections during the famous South Pacific swells....I'd be jabbin' everything BUT me arm or leg........ . :rolleyes:

A 5 year plan? Hmmm.

I found my first grey hair on 12/21/2012.

My son is 13. So for the next 5 years I will be busy raising a young man to adulthood.

My daughter is 10. So I am raising a young woman. (These are considered the toughest years for a female.)

Trying to stay healthy. Keep up with the husband and kids. Knit some stuff for fun and gifts. (Looking in to "prayer shawl" or "Operation Linus" I think it adds some mystery to knitting. I'm going to try a special little shrug sweater that is for mastectomy recovery, haven't found the right yarn yet.)

5 years, hmmm.

Getting 2 small children going through school, seeing if I can rebuild my health to get back to part time work. I would love to take a 6 month sabbatical when the kids are old enough to appreciate it, and travel as a family. I''ll be sure to pop by if I am passing :

Edited to add, mommida, the shawls and blankets are such a lovely idea x

I have to admit I am intrigued by the prayer shawl. I bought a clearance Prayer Shawl book, because the patterns looked soo easy. I did not expect the personal stories would be so interesting. The story on page 59 caught my interest. A wounded soldier at Walter Reed was asked what he had wrapped around him. He said he didn't know, someone just gave it to him. He likes it because it keeps him warm. He then added a confession to the monk, he hears praying voices when he wears it.

Even if I only make 1 a year, I think it will be worth it.

I think I'll take my chances ;):P

In 10 years Max, God willing, will graduate from high school and then other than an occasional birthday party, wedding, etc. here and there, there will be NO reason to have to speak with or deal with Jesse. THAT, my friends, will be a big part of that happily ever after!! :D

Coconut, since I cannot have almonds because they make me drowsy. I think it was 55 grams of coconut for 2 cups of egg whites - plus some salt, baking powder, xantan and psyllium... You get six 6-inch bagels. The texture is a bit odd if you are looking for a chewy, dense bagel, but I am not fan of chewiness, so I appreciate their crunchy, golden crust and airy inside. Yum!

BC--thanks! (I can access the board now from my computer, but have problems posting after a quote :blink: ) Even now, I can't "return" to form paragraphs, but I digress :D I'm the opposite of you--allergic to coconut, but eat loads of almond. Since I also prefer light, crispy bagels (like Udi's), I bet I'd like those--will try with almond flour :) .

Glad to help :) I think you will have to play around a bit with the proportions: coconut is high in fibre and absorbs a lot of moisture, so it requires more egg than almond flour.

I simply poured the mixture in my donut pan. I know that's not how you make bagels, and I used to make-boil-and-bake my own back in the days, but I personally don't think I could make a coconut batter that would be good for boiling.

Let me know how it goes!

I'm way behind on posts. Still thinking about my five year plan and responding to the posts I haven't read. The party was beyond my expectations (except I wish it was nearer to some psillies- I'm determined to start meeting my dear forum friends). It wiped me out for a week because, as usual, i OVERDID IT (big surprise). hey, I was celebrating two special birthdays (3) and my living! Didn't cost quite as much as i expected so we can throw Tony a nice party with his friends at Brown for his official 21st. He only had 3 friends at the party but he more than made up for quantity with quality. These friends either waited a week to go back to school (the theater major parlayed it into an assignment) and the other 2 drove back from school.

Anyway, since thee isn't a set psillie group email and i don't have everyone's I wanted to share this with everyone in case I didn't have your email to send it to:

    • Certainly seems likely if those levels dropped due to gluten removal. I am just curious, when you had the scope eventually, were you eating it?  Are you feeling any better? 
    • 1. Double checked your antibodies? 2. Those of us with celiac have issues with some nutrients for various reasons, being either we can not absorb enough of them from our foods due to damage to intestines or the new gluten-free foods you changed to are non fortified and do not contain the nutrients you which is especially true if you eat a bunch of processed gluten-free foods. A combination of both of these can lead to extreme fatigues. I found taking Magnesium, and B-Vtitamin supplementation helps (Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with Neurological support same company, Liquid version is easy to absorb and no pills). Look into KAL Nutritional Yeast also, I use it to make condiment cheese sauces, toppings, blend it with egg whites. it contains many nutrients we are lacking and is a great supplement/food to have in your diet. 3, Look into what cycling lady mentioned, this could also be a issues. 4. Had your blood sugar checked?
    • I'm going to play Captain NCGS to Posterboy's Professor Pellagra (No doubt the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes will soon be bidding for our services) and say that regardless of the blood test results, this: is exhibit one. You have a reaction to the gluten free diet. That doesn't necessarily eliminate fodmaps or issues with other components of wheat, but it's at least suggestive and the main reason I think you need to get back on it and give it a longer go. In fact, as I hinted at in the previous post, I'd be doing my 'goodbye gluten' top 10 croissant and bagel bucket list because I don't think you should go back to it simply based on exhibit one. It's messing with you in a way that it shouldn't. I had sciatic back pain for 20 years which I attributed to a disk injury. It was left sided and when bad travelled down my left leg following the sciatic nerve. I had all the scans, treatments, exercises etc. Nothing really worked and it was at times intensely debilitating.  Drum roll... Gluten free diet cured it. My new theory is that gluten related inflammation was localised in that area and it caused the pressure on the nerve. Now why there and not elsewhere? No idea, but it could be inflammation causing your pain? I went for several diabetes tests because I would suddenly become very weak, hungry and I would feel unwell. Weak, hot, light headed, on the verge of passing out. The tests were normal but I knew that I seemingly had a blood sugar issue. Another win for the gluten-free diet.  It sorted the tremors in my hand (begone thoughts of early onset parkinsons or ms) and the nerve twitching under my eye and etc etc. well you get the point. I've said above I sometimes wonder if I'm undiagnosed celiac but there are certain aspects of NCGS which seem to fit me and maybe you too. My digestion stomach etc is much better now but I wouldn't have said before all this that it was particularly bad. I read this http://www.bmj.com/content/345/bmj.e7982 and I have a similar experience that neuro symptoms were more apparent than digestive in the 'classic celiac' model. (more of that sort of thing here though I already sent you the Umberto Volta I think. I would be fascinated if you, your brother and myself were to do the gluten challenge and then take this test: http://www.medicaldaily.com/non-celiac-gluten-insensitivity-blood-test-392850 what the result would be. But you know what, unless the scientists put out a call for more volunteers I won't be doing it. In the search for answers, validation, certainty, it's easy to forget the real goal, feeling better. After several years on the gluten-free diet I feel better. I'm no longer thinking that the next bout of chest pain will be my last minutes on earth. I no longer worry about going blind because half my vision has gone grey, I'm not trembling, I don't have cardiac arrythmia, I don't have rheumatic pain, I don't have crippling back ache like I'm 40 years older, I don't get  faint, dizzy and heart pounding when I stand up,  I don't have brain fog, anxiety, depression (well sometimes!), painful stomach cramps, weird white tongue, rashes on my torso, horrible greasy skin on face, horrible dry peeling scalp, sores on my scalp and neck, white spots on my fingernails, I'm not sweating so much I have to douse myself in antiperspirant, I don't have all this and more and I don't have a letter from a doctor saying I have celiac and I don't give a **** about it. I don't have gluten and as the Godfather of soul would say...  I feel good  Feel good IT. You've done as much as anyone could to find an answer. Maybe there's one around the corner or maybe there'll be one in 5 or 10 years when the likes of Marios Hadjivassiliou, Umberto Volta or Alessio Fassano have completed their research. Or maybe not or never. It's in the 'nice to have' than the essential's for me now. Do the diet, note your symptoms, stay connected with your doctor so that if there is anything that sticks around suggestive of other things you're on top of it, but feel good and focus on that and enjoying life.  All the best!    
    • I think he's right. It's a hard burden at times at any age but there will be particular challenges for your daughter as kids don't want to stick out or have to be continually monitoring things like their food. Check out this advert from a UK retailer. Beware it's so sugary it could probably give a diabetic person a sugar crash! Maybe you could do similar? Just get or make a selection of kid friendly foods but don't say anything about it to your daughter, just everyone go in and start filling their plates.  If she asks you if you've done anything for her you just tell her that she can eat everything on the table. At least this would show both that choice is still available to her and that because everyone is eating the same thing that she won't feel like she's being singled out?
