Just started watching an unbelievable TV show called Touch. Posting a quote below that really resonated with me: 

 

 

"If two points are
destined to touch the universe will always find a way to make the connection.
Even when all hope seems lost certain ties cannot be broken. They define who we
are and who we become across space, across time, along paths we cannot predict.
Nature always finds a way."


I believe I was meant to meet all of you - even if it took Celiac to bring me here.

 

I'm going to start a thread for this show. If you don't watch it and have time it's extremely uplifting. The first season and beginning of second season can be found on Hulu. It airs on Fox.

 

 
Love,
Loey

That's really sweet, Loey :)

 

Second day in a row I wake up with eyes semi-closed by an allergic reaction. WHAT on earth is causing this? The only new thing I ate these nights was coconut butter, but I am usually ok with coconut in any form? I am so, so tired of this. As soon as I think I mastered one allergy, something new comes up. This sucks big time.

I am so sorry that you're having an allergic reaction. I ate something yesterday that triggered my celiac but haven't figured out what it was yet so I can totally empathize. Hang in there and take some Benadryl if you have it (or if not see if someone can pick it up for you). I usually go back to the very bare bones diet when I can't figure out the trigger but that sucks more than your reaction. Could it be another type of allergy (dust, dander, mold)?

 

Sending you a big dose of positive energy, healing (((hugs))) and love,

Loey

Hi GFinDC (tried typing in just gluten-free and it kept auto correcting to gluten free). Long time no talk! What is the Eli Stone Program called? Is it just Eli Stone. Been watching Zero Hour and it's not as good as Touch but still well made.  Hope  you're doing well my friend,

Hi Loey,

 

Yep, the show title is just plain Eli Stone.  It's about a lawyer of all things.  But he i has "prophetic visions" that affect

 people around him.  Kind of fun and odd.

Thank you Loey - and I am sorry you got CC'd. My body is in alert-mode: I think what triggered the puffy eyes was a Neutrogena wash, because soon after gaining sight again I realized that my face was burnt red and sand-paper rough. It b****y hurts. To even have facial expressions. I also have a bright, boil like strip on my wrist, where I carry my watch. So, yeah, pretty much anything I use causes me a reaction.

 

On the psillie note: I am ready to baffle my baristas once again! Known in the Heights as 'the woman with the teeny-tiny travel mug' (8 ounces), I have recently got a new mug that measures 4 ounces. I feel so cool. B)

 

I have met other scholars interested in the problems I tackle in my dissertation. Weirdly enough, they are all in cybernetics. :blink: How on earth did THAT happen?

Saw this on facebook. Had to share

 

Grandmother says... Carrots, Eggs, or Coffee; "Which are you?"

A young woman went to her grandmother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for
her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give
up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem
was solved a new one arose.

Her grandmother took her to the
kitchen. She filled three pots with water. In the first, she placed
carrots, in the second she placed eggs and the last she placed ground
coffee beans. She let them sit and boil without saying a word.


In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the
carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and
placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a
bowl. Turning to her granddaughter, she asked, "Tell me what do you
see?"

"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

She
brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted
that they got soft.She then asked her to take an egg and break it.

After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.


Finally, she asked her to sip the coffee. The granddaughter smiled, as
she tasted its rich aroma. The granddaughter then asked. "What's the
point,grandmother?"

Her grandmother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity--boiling water--but each reacted differently.


The carrot went in strong, hard and unrelenting. However after being
subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had
been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior.
But, after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became
hardened.

The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water they had changed the water.

"Which are you?" she asked her granddaughter.

"When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?"

Think of this: Which am I?

Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity, do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?


Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the
heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a
financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and
stiff?

Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and a hardened heart?


Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water,
the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it
releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things
are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you.

When the hours are the darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate to another level?

Thank you Loey, that's amazing! :wub: 

 

Vydor - that story is fantastic, and now I finally have a morally upright justification for my caffeine addiction. YAY! I would also add "coffee" to the survival grocery list :)

 

So... one of my hobbies is upsetting social expectations on dating websites (it started off as a joke, but I'm often considering making this into a writing project). Now, this morning I saw a loser writing this about himself:

 

"Food: The most important activity is eating. I love food. I don't date vegans, vegetarians, or people on a gluten-free diet."

 

What the effn' effe? :angry:  I wonder why you are single *facepalm*....

 

If any member of the celiac community would like to convey to this... thing... their sentiments, feel free to post your mind here.

Dating things can be hilarious.  Whe we're really bored, the bf and I sit around and read each other Craigslist ads.  One guy's post started out "Looking for a woman who can read and do finances".  Dunno.....pretty high expectations there dude....

Was he looking for a date or for an accountant??? :blink:  I like the missed connections section. Sounds like a very rude British comedy (not that there's anything wrong with that from time to time).

    • Dairy is a major issue with celiac, due to the enzymes to break it down being produced by the villi tips being mostly destroyed or damaged first. Eliminating for a few months may be critical. I might suggest digestive enzymes, I am taking Jarrow Enzymes at 2x the dose, Jarrow Bromelain, and sometimes some extra papaya enzymes. I have issues breaking down the large amounts of foods I consume otherwise (I am trying to body build bulk). I also would look at some protein powders if I was you. Vegan protein powders are easy to digest most times an can be great. Pumpkin Seed protein is the easiest on the stomach, being a balanced PH, high in zinc, iron, magnesium, it is very good for recovery and putting on weight in addition to others. Might also consider blends, try not to get anything with too much gums in it. I like NutraKey V-Pro and MRM Veggie Elite. I also buy a whole list of others. On her food, veggies, and meats should be cooked to almost mush, try using a crockpot and stewing them. This will make them easier to digest and break down.
      Is she having any other issues? Like Bowl issues? I find I can loose hunger if I back up, and I have to take magnesium like crazy and eat a whole lot of fiber to keep it moving. Take it you already read the newbie 101 section about getting all new cookware, and deconing the house? Bit of a extra tip I swear by to everyone, Freezer Paper/Butcher Paper. Makes a nice clean prep surface and easy clean up.
    • Hi Kirsty, Gluten messes me up in a lot of different ways, some of which I recognise in your first list. You can find a massive list of symptoms associated with celiac here: https://glutenfreeworks.com/gluten-disorders/symptom-guide/ and it may be that some of your other symptoms can be found there. It's also worth searching this forum as it's been going for a long time, in internet years at least.  It certainly messed with my blood sugar and like you I'd take tests which didn't reach the extreme values, but that didn't stop the symptoms. The only way I realised this was when I removed it from my diet, for other reasons and found that a load of different other symptoms also resolved.  After this happened I then went back on to gluten for a test, a gluten challenge. My symptoms came back, but my blood test and endoscopy were negative for celiac. My consultant told me to avoid gluten for life.  In your case you need to decide whether to push for more celiac testing or not. If not, please consider fully excluding gluten. My own experience is that it's not something that you can have a little of and get a health benefit, you are still engaging your auto immune system. Obviously if you're experiencing extreme symptoms when you remove it you should do it in consultation with your doctor, but maybe if you could just get through those difficult first few days you may experience relief from some of your symptoms? Best of luck matt    
    • So... his gp did a genetic test - positive - and has referred him to a gi. His paed and diabetes educator have ordered the genetic test and another coeliac screen for 3 months and then they will decide if he needs to see a specialist because they're still convinced its most likely a false positive. Why test at diagnosis of diabetes if they don't believe the results anyway? Why is this disease so confusing for the medical world?  Anyway we're sticking with the gp and hopefully it won't be too long before he gets into a gi.  It seems that blood tests don't matter in any situation. If they can find any excuse to invalidate them they jump at it.  Makes me so infuriated I just laugh about how I already seem to know more. 
    • Thank you! I have been considering lactose, though I'm reluctant to remove more things from her diet. She has not had the classic lactose intolerance symptoms of diarrhea, gas, or bloating, though I know she could still have trouble with it. She's been on the medication for less than a week, so it's not the cause of her symptoms. I did not call the manufacturer but it is listed as safe on glutenfreedrugs.com (under the brand name periactin). It was prescribed by a pediatric GI who specializes in celiac. The first question my daughter had for the doctor was whether the medication is gluten-free, and she told us it was.   
    • cyclinglady, I think Joseph is hoping to exclude celiac disease.   I feel for him, as I also had a hard time accepting my daughter's celiac.      I had this gene test done hoping our GI doctor made a terrible mistake.   But now I have triple prove that my daughter really does have it! I agree with you and others, that if biopsy confirmed celiac disease, you do have celiac disease. (But on occasion, doctors can be wrong, right?) However, I have a distant relative (not related by blood) who thought she had celiac diease for 10 years (no biopsy done), lived a strict gluten free life style, but still suffered from health issues, ended up in the mayo clinic, and found out that she did not have celiac.    She did not have the celiac gene.
