I hope all of you in the path of the latest storm (is this one Q and when the H!@# did they start naming snowstorms?). I'll keep you all in my prayers. Right now it looks like we're just getting rain and snow but I don't trust Accuweather as much as the Weather Channel. We could be in for it. I kept the number of the snowplow guy in case of another Nemo. Superman is great at shoveling but when it's the size of Nemo it's just too much.

 

DH went grocery shopping for me and bought all the ingredients to make paella (he even read all labels since what I originally put on shopping list had soy in it - my worst trigger). We're getting close with a couple up the street and we've been planning a trip to Newport with them that keeps getting put off because of snow and cold temps. We went to their house last Sunday and I invited them over for paella this Sunday. Haven't made it in years - fingers crossed. It is so nice to have a couple we really relate to. They were original Pfizer transfers from Michigan before they got laid off so there's a real connection.

 

STAY SAFE!!!!!

 

Love,

Loey

Its nice to have a snow day. This is only the second time in all of my years here. It takes a lot for my school to cancel :) But right now the official snow count is 5-8 inches out there. When i watched the news earlier, they said it felt like 0. And then the wind :blink: I have no doubt there are snow dunes moving about.

You go Vincent!!! We've been having trouble with our washer and DH has to literally pull it out and take it apart. The most recent time it was not letting us unlock the door and the clothes were still soaking in suds. The first time we had a repairman come and it cost $160 for him to show DH where to go to fix it. This time he was determined to fix it himself. After an hour he discovered a color catcher sheet was clogging the hoses. Hopefully your blow torch fixed the problem. I pheel for you.

 

Hugs,

Loey

So far so good! No leaks! Fire work good!

Serves me right.... Been feeling good, got most of my problem food groups back, don't seem to be as sensitive to cc...... you know what's coming... lol

Had to stop at CVS to get a card and saw the Snickers beckoning to me in the check out line. I figured, what the heck-- ..... 2 hours later the cramps started. Right on schedule. What an idiot.

lol!! It was good, though.

I hold on to clothes too. I am determined this spring to go through and donate what I realistically don't wear anymore -- I don't have as much closet space as I used to.

You are not an idiot. I picked up some homeopathic pills to deal with the UTI pain (ladies {and gentlemen} you know the side effects of antibiotics on females). It said it contained trace elements of soy protein (my worst trigger is soy) and I took it anyway. Wound up sending DH to CVS to get me Benadryl after he was dressed for bed. My lip had started to swell. So, if anyone's an idiot it's me! At least Snickers taste good. BTW, I hope your cramps are gone and I'm glad that that you enjoyed the Snickers. We all sometimes have to feed a craving. 

 

Love & Healing hugz,

Loey

 

P.S. I also lifted the laundry basket when it was overflowing  :blink: (a big NO-NO for my back) and pulled it out a little. I wanted to at least start folding laundry before Superman got home from CVS. Now I'm headed back to the chiropractor. I was ready to go to every two weeks and now I'm seeing her two days in a row. I know she'll straighten me out (no pun intended).  :lol:

Ouch! Low!! Hope the chiro fixes ya up:). Ugh, soy in the Homeopathics.. I use a few things by Boiron-- the only carriers I've seen with them are lactose and fructose.

The only symptom I got from the Snickers was cramps. A few hours worth, but that was about it. Amazing!

Glad it was just cramps although those ain't no picnic. Hope you've recovered already. The chiro did a great job and said I caught it in time. 

 

When in doubt, always have benadryl on hand.

 

:D  that's something I always had in the house when DS lived here.

We do have the best men on this forum. I'm pretty lucky on the home front as well. OK, let's see how my first multi-quote experience turned out.

I'll touch base later. Superman is ready to taste my lentil stew.

 

Love & Hugz,

Loey

 

P.S. I finally crossed into the thousands and I didn't even notice   :blink:

Any of the "best men" of this forum still single? :D

 

Speaking of which - one of my smartest freshmen proposed, was accepted, and is now getting married: darn them kids, they always make me feel warm and fuzzy! Feeling old in the age of Facebook.

    • Update: for most accurate results, I am eating one piece of white wheat bread a day and am hating the symptoms. Less than two weeks until the endoscopy so I'm hanging in there.
    • Gaerty, I am glad to hear that you've ruled out the worst stuff. That at least helps clear any anxiety or worry you might have. I know that would clear up mine. I have good news! About three days ago my splinter hemorrhages cleared up 100%! The one that was on my right thumb was long and was there for about 2 to 3 months. I started taking this Vitamin C supplement 1000 mg once a day about 3 weeks ago. Whats crazy is that on the day I started the Vitamin C I noticed a small hemorrhage cropping up on my left thumb. It was very small. By day 7 of taking the vitamin C the one on the left thumb started growing out. By the second week I noticed the one on the right thumb shrunk drastically and by the end of week 3 they were all gone. By day 10 I also started taking 25mg of iron because all my muscles keep twitching. My B's and Magnesium came back good 5 months ago. I heard low iron can cause that symptom as well. So thought I'd give it a try.  I am not sure if it was a combo of the C and Iron or just the C that helped clear the splinter hemorrhages but for sure it was one of those things because they are the only things I have changed recently with supplements in the past 30 days.  
    • The nasal spray is safe, per the 2017 gluten-free drug list, but check the list as there are a few different manufacturers.   http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/newlist.htm Claritin is fine.   Get a Nedi pot.  Helps tremendously.  It is safe.....100% gluten free.  Just use pre-boiled and the cooled water.  
    • Thanks Ravenswood. I need the strength and encouragement to keep going. The last sessions fall out was 4 days of my body revolting on a nervous system level.  I'll look into your acupressure book suggestion. I have done sinus acupressure for myself and my daughter for years but did not explore more.  In the past when gluten-free my fibromyalgia symptoms improved but since they come back the concern is it might be actual fibromyalgia.  After 2016 I found out I have Barrett s esophagus, fibromyalgia, additional food intolerance plus the gluten. I had in my head I was ncgs and it was all related to  that and leaky gut that occurred after my challenge., So I wasn't prepared to digest all the above. Pun intended. Thanks for the encouragement Awol
    • So I'll try to keep this short and sweet.  I'm a 25yo male and have had GI issues for about 7 years. Through many years and many doctors visits, I've gotten potential diagnoses of IBS, post-infectious IBS (d/t a Giardia infection in 2014), small intestine bacterial overgrowth, GERD, and even a strong suspicion of inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis). I've had two colonoscopies (no biopsies taken) and one EGD (biopsies only taken of STOMACH which showed chronic gastritis, not small intestine). Pretty much all of my tests have come back "normal."  I'll start by saying that back in 2014ish my blood results for Celiac were negative. My GI symptoms vary and fluctuate greatly... When I'm really struggling, I'll have chronic diarrhea, debilitating reflux, hours of burping after eating anything, epigastric and lower right quadrant abdominal pain, severe fatigue (nearly passing out), migraines, awful brain fog / depression, unilateral eye pain and photophobia, mouth ulcers, glossitis (tongue inflammation), and occasional bloody mucus in my stool if I'm extremely flared.   So my GP recommended I try a gluten-free diet after my IBD panel came back as negative. I reluctantly gave it a shot. I was gluten-free for about 2 months - slowly but surely, my chronic diarrhea relented, fatigue lifted, and my reflux nearly disappeared (to the point of considering stopping my omeprazole). Since eating gluten-free is so difficult, I decided to try a 3-day gluten challenge to see if gluten truly was the culprit. I ate gluten products 2-3 times/day for 3 days. It made my reflux a bit worse and gave me some pain, but nothing severe. My tongue however started progressively burning/stinging that week.  The BAD symptoms came about 2 weeks after my first gluten exposure... My acid reflux became MUCH MUCH worse, despite medication. I lost about 7 pounds over 3 weeks from not wanting to eat. I had much more abdominal pain. My tongue became very inflamed and sensitive to eating/drinking. I got mouth ulcers. I became very depressed, irritable, and brain-fogged out of NOWHERE. I was nauseous and having headaches. It was NOT fun. That's when I thought, "Ok, I am definitely more sensitive to gluten than I thought." That was about 6 weeks ago and my stomach is still feeling the effects of those 3 days. So, my questions: Has anyone experienced a similar story? Has anyone had lower GI bleeding with celiac? For those who have Celiac, are your symptoms typically delayed like that (2-3 weeks)? I know NCGS is supposed to have much more immediate symptom-onset. Has anyone tested negative to blood work, but positive on small intestine biopsies?
