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:

    • I wish they didn't use " gluten" as a headline.  People abuse and starve children for a variety of " reasons".  gluten-free was just one they picked, it could have been paleo or kosher or whatever... 
    • Ugh!  This again..... first ...it was one person...not a study... just someone's speculation. if I am remembering correctly - no one actually tested the retainer. The kid was a 12-16 yr old an drew could have gotten caught eating gluten, etc, etc, etc.   And then those internet folks who love to spread " bad news" or  use that stuff to further their purpose, jumped on it.  And then let's talk to a chemist or plastic scientist - if the plastic leaches our actual proteins, like gluten, wouldn't the plastic piece break down after a while? welcome to the world of Celiac internet myths.   adding - none of the Celiac Centers, Associations, etc have warned people not to use a retainers.
    • Ok, so, here goes. Today I had my teeth cleaned, and this was my first time there since I've been diagnosed. I double checked that their tooth polish is gluten free, and they told me it's safe. I feel fine. Tonight I was at Walmart looking at buying some mouth wash (I was scolded, as per usual), and I Googled gluten free mouth wash. I stumbled upon an article about gluten free products and dental stuff. The person mentioned a study that was released stating that a child's retainer was making her sick because it contained gluten - in the plastic. I had braces when I was a teenager and had them out about 12 years ago. I got one of those old school retainers. The kind with the plastic part for the roof of your mouth and the metal wire that goes around the front. It's cuuuuute. Let me tell you. Anyway, I decided to delve into this more, because I don't know if my retainer is safe now. I found an old thread on here where it looks like people were debating this, and for the most part, seasoned Celiac's agree that it's a bunch of bunk.  Do people have opinions? I know that many of you do a great deal of research into Celiac and that you may have some information. I'm looking for real science - not fear tactics. I wear my retainer religiously, My mom paid almost $5,000 for my teeth to look like they do, and I'm not about to let them get shnaggled again. I'm 29, but they still move if I don't wear my retainer. I've been debating getting a new one - one of the plastic ones that you can't really see, but I don't want to shell out the dough for that until I have to. I'm shocked mine has held up as long as it has.  When I was diagnosed back in November my TTG was >100. Two months later it was 12. So I assume that my little retainer isn't causing much damage, as that's pretty significant. I have to go back in July to have my blood tested again. In the meantime, is this something to stew over? I have no idea where my retainer was made, or who made it. It was a long time ago and I bet if I called my orthodontist to find out who the manufacturer was they wouldn't be able to tell me. Maybe I'm wrong. It was 2004 or 2005, so I'm assuming they won't know at this point. But I could check if people think I should. I feel fine, for the most part. But I was a silent Celiac when I was diagnosed so I don't trust my body to not tell me if I'm being glutened. I'll just say that.  Thanks!
    • They are awesome! But they are not available at Starbucks at some places--like hospitals. Pity!
    • Howdy, No stranger to forums as I've found them to be a great tool for my interests in motorcycles and old trucks but now find myself needing to educate myself in dealing with Celiac Disease. I'm a male in my fifties now and have had to deal with eczema since I was about six years old that was mostly contained to my feet and legs and outgrew it for the most part in my teens. I would have occasional flare ups but about three months ago my elbows and upper torso broke out in blisters and itched like no tomorrow. I hoped it would go away and used Cortisone for relief but finally made an appointment with the Dermatologist. As I'm sure most do, I began researching the internet since this outbreak seemed different than my eczema as a child, and wondered if DH was the culprit. When I showed the Doc and expressed my concern he said, "I have dozens come in that think they are Celiac and are not...but you, most likely are". He did two biopsy's, one for a local lab and the other he sent to the Mayo Clinic and a week later it was confirmed. At the time of the biopsy results I had been gluten-free for two weeks but to my surprise they told me to start eating gluten again as they wanted to do a upper GI scope and needed some lesions to biopsy. I took full advantage and formed a bucket list that ended with pancakes the night before the scope. Still waiting for those results that should come any day and started Dapsone the day after. They have me doing blood work weekly to start and I hope to be off that stuff within a year. My wife has been gluten-free for the better part of ten years as gluten and dairy just don't agree with her. This has been helpful to me since she knows what the good stuff is and we both do the weekly shopping together and so I've learned a lot already, I am somewhat concerned about hidden gluten though, so I still have much to learn. Looking forward to meeting other members of the forum.
