"The Other Woman"  is a great name for a sailing blog.  I have seen one or two boats by that name.  A gentleman's ship is truely  a mistress.  Um, maybe a good thing? :rolleyes:

You guys are so nice!

 

Here's my first post:

 

The usual thing is to start out with "test test" or "hello world" or some other mundanity, but I'm  not up for that.  I'm just gonna hold my nose and jump and hope it all turns out alright.

 

I suppose the first order of business is to point out the the first woman is a sailboat.  I know, there went 90% of my readers but they would have figured it out anyway the first time I posted a picture of "her naked bottom" and they realized:

  1. We scraped the bottom paint off the boat and she isn't too stimulating when naked and 
  2. The humans involved are actually plump and middle aged.  And will likely never appear naked in this blog.

Ok, so no nudity and we're all happy about it. Then.......what's the point?

 

Well...I want to track my journey.  Part of this will be the sailing thing and part will be whatever sort of random thing seems to be connected with the sailing.  Since we aren't yet on the water much of the early blogging will be random and probably introspective. 

 

I do want to make this fun for anyone reading, partly because I like to be entertaining, and partly because I'm just an ordinary person who had this wacky idea that she could dump her life and do something completely different.  I want other ordinary people to realize that they can do the same.

 

I hope you'll keep reading, and I really hope I'll keep posting.

This is the 3rd time I've written this post and lost it before I sent it! You better not stop blogging or posting because this is NOT ordinary (it's awesome like you)! It's well written & hilarious. How many women get to ride on top of the mistress with their hubbies?

Okey dokey.  Giant chickens have been stuffed into the freezer.  "Ha!" I here you say.  "Just how giant could they be? They're just chickens!"

 

Well, my skeptical friends, the roosters were so big that they had to go into 2.5 gallon bags and my freezer barely closes. The hen is crammed into a gallon bag that can't possibly close but she's in the frig and we'll roast her on Tuesday.

 

Sadly I have no scale so I don't know how much they weigh, but they are hefty and pretty much fat free.

These guys were destined for the table from the start.  They're bred to grow to (beyond) full size in three months and they aren't really healthy.  The hen's liver was already in poor shape and the boys had these weird, long hearts.  Their joints just can't handle the weight of the birds and they would waddle a few steps then sit down.  Well, plump down.  It was kind of a controlled fall.

 

I decided that my options were to either give up meat entirely or participate in the process that brings it to my table.  Harsh, and I don't like it, but I'm not yet willing to become a vegetarian.

Good morning, and welcome to August.

Back in the day, Nikki would do a first day of the month post, but she hasn't been here in months.

Woke up this morning to find (well, Jacquie found it first) a "present" on the bedroom floor. One of the cats caught and killed a mouse and left us the trophy. Riley had been after something in the kitchen recently, and we set out some traps after finding evidence, but the traps remain unsprung.

I am wondering if there is a correlation between cats and celiac/NCGI??

My cat died on Friday, under 10, no obvious reason :(

She was a useless mouser. I once saw a mouse run between her front paws, and she didn't even notice.

There do seem to be an awful lot of them about here.

This seems totally beyond possibility, but you made my brain go out of normalcy. WTH?

Cats and celiac disease.

I probably had celiac disease at a low level for decades before it flared up big time in August of 1995. Diagnosis did not come until July of 2000--five years of celiac hell.

On July 1, 1995, our first cat adopted us. A long story, but he was lost and wandering and we took him in--intending it to be temporary until we could find where he belonged. It turned out he belonged with us. :wub:

But now I wonder: was the timing a coincidence, or was there more to it?

And even if it is so, it won't change my love of the cats who allow us to share their home.

Hahaha, always glad help freak someone's head just a little bit, especially if it involves cats.

Ours was a rescue cat, who I knew was coming to live with us as soon as I saw her little face on the website.

I hope some new cats choose us soon....

Took our puppy to the vet last night... he has been having problems walking and stuff... he is 14 or 15 years old (was a rescue so do not know)... dx was arthritis... not sure how much time we have left with him... our son has only known life with our puppy around (we got him the year before our son was born). Gonna be rough when the time comes. BUT for now, got him some narcotics to try.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss and illness of Psilly pets.....they have been a HUGE part of our lives in Psillyville, right from the start.....  ..Dogs, cats.....even a yeti....and I do wonder how he is faring -- do yetis get osteoarthritis?....Do they get taken in as strays, and put up for adoption?....Quite a commitment, that...        :rolleyes:

Well the puppy is acting a bit younger on the narcotics. At least he is not falling over when going potty and can shake himself out again. So I guess that means it was a good call on the drugs for now.

Definitely no cat involved with the Celiac here, I've been terribly allergic since birth.

 

 

As to the yeti, he's sore and creaky but moving better then before. ;)

http://southbrunswick.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-respond-to-mvc-after-man-refuses-to-remove-pas250cc0dc13#comment_6446963

 

At about noon on Feb. 2, South Brunswick Police responded to the MVC facility on Route 130 in Dayton on reports that a man renewing his driver's license refused to remove the pasta strainer he was wearing on his head for his license photo, according to a police report.

 

According to the police report, an MVC employee told Williams that it's against policy for people to wear head coverings in license photos, unless it's for religious reasons. 

"As a Pastafarian, I believe the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster," Williams said. "The strainer is a showing of my devoutness to the religion."

    • Not on Dapsone, but have found that OTC corticosteroid cream helps lesions clear more quickly and helps with the pigmentation a bit. You don't want to overdo it with the cream as it thins your skin, so only apply to affected areas for a short period of time. Coconut oil (the kind you eat) applied to your skin helps with the dryness and seems to help healing a bit. I would recommend Squirmingitch's advice - go with the Fasano diet. At the very least, avoid eating foods prepared by anyone but you at all costs and try to stay away from open flour/baking. Many celiacs claim to get away with doing these things (and maybe they truly do), but when your reaction manifests externally, it's difficult to pretend that risky behaviours are going below your immune system's radar.
    • The Rash and various other symptoms are strong signs of Celiac, multiple people in your family also have it. I see several of your symptoms as very familiar to me myself, and I know that supplementation will help resolve the rest of your issues with a gluten-free diet. While we do suggest getting tested for confirmation if your limited as you say with insurance, and money then doing what is best for your health should be your focus right now. Go ahead and remove the gluten from your diet if you wish and go gluten free. If something happens later you MIGHT be able to put up with a gluten challenge and get tested at a later time. I feel for you and see the issues, I have Medicaid myself and my severe gluten reactions and allergies got me on disability for a good while. Testing was a pain in the ass for me as finding a doctor that takes Medicaid is bloody near impossible where I live. I do suggest supplementing Magnesium, Iron, Vitamin D,  and B vitamins primarily right now. Others you might be low in are folate, E,C,A and various others. The nerve issues are strongly related to various b vitamins, magnesium, and D.  I will share a link of what I take for a example. BTW have you checked out the newbie 101 thread? And if you need help finding gluten-free foods I have a huge list that I have complied for people although we normally suggest a whole foods diet only for the first month or so. Might want to drop dairy and oats for a bit, by the sound of your deficiency issues I would say it would be a huge help doing so.   https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/  
    • It is meant to show you are a real person not a spammer.  Not sure if it works anymore.  Only Admin can see it and he doesn't do anything with it.
    • MelissaNZ,  Has your daughter been checked for vitamin deficiencies??? Vitamin D deficiency symptoms include urinary incontinence, oral candidiasis (thrush), skin rashes, bumps on the backs of arms, joint pain, distended stomach and short stature.  Bones can't grow much without vitamin D.  Vitamin D deficiency causes delayed gastric emptying (food doesn't move through the gastrointestinal tract at a normal speed and the intestines bloat) which explains your daughter's delayed reaction to the cake.   Vitamin A deficiency is also a cause of bumps on the back of the arms. Vitamin A deficiency causes vision problems. Vitamin A and D are both fat soluble vitamins.  Absorption of fats is a problem for Celiacs.  So is absorption of B vitamins and important minerals. B Complex vitamins are water soluble and must be replenished every day. Skin rashes are associated with several B vitamins like niacin (B3), B12, and thiamine (B1).   I went through a period of severe malnutrition prior to diagnosis.  It was not a pleasant experience.  I had symptoms similar to your daughter's, including the incontinence, which resolved on vitamin D supplementation.   Please, please have your daughter tested for vitamin D deficiency.  And have her B vitamins checked as well.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption.  Malabsorption causes deficiency diseases.  Newly diagnosed Celiacs need to be checked for deficiencies.   I hope this helps.  
    • I will try to make my long story short, I have been searching my whole life for a diagnosis,  I have seen pretty much every doctor possible I even went through a spinal tap recently because they thought I had multiple sclerosis,  when I was younger I was always throwing up and having stomach problems, a couple hospital visits they thought I had appendicitis, I started having a neurological symptoms as well as  anxiety and depression,  The fatigue was just over bearing,  I was having numbness and tingling and muscle spasms all the time eventually started having seizures,  which kind of cycled through and stop happening after a couple months,  and then it dawned upon me my brother has celiac pretty severely, my grandmother also has celiac, my dad does as well, I don't know why I never thought that it could be my issue, for the last week I have   Been gluten-free and steering clear of cross-contamination,  my dizziness is improved my fatigue is improved as well as rashes I was getting on my arms  and sides,  I have no more muscle jerks or spasms, The problem is I have horrible insurance and I cannot afford testing, so I am at least trying to do it an home blood test,  I know it's not very accurate on telling me if I have celiac or not,   But the thought I may never know for sure if I have it is very daunting.  My family keeps telling me you don't need  to spend thousands of dollars to have a doctor tell you you can't eat something you already know you can't. Just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has a vi just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has advice,  I don't want to be known as one of those people who believe they have something and people with the disease frown upon them it's a very scary thing to think about.
