  1. Hey there! I hope you're doing well. Long time no see!

  2. Has anyone tried one of those giant circular-shaped cookie forms? I think I am going to try one, since I can't find pre-made crusts with no tapioca starch. And I am not graceful enough to toss one and form it with my hands hehe I'll let you know how it goes! lovelove, sickchick

    Pizza Crusts

    Thank you everyone!! I can't have dairy, so I will try to make David's crust without the milk granules. And Rachelle, I will try yours with coconut milk and see how it works! So psyched. HAHA xoxo sickchick

    Easy Lemon Tart

    Yummy!!! I love lemon.
  5. fun to come up totally vegan recipes and salad dressings with exotic fruit

  6. Thanks, Doing pretty good. Got back after almost a month in a clinic in Calif. Nw I'm off of all salt, sugar, oil, dairy and animal protein of any kind. It made a big difference in the last 7 weeks with my energy starting to come back and no problems walking or with circulation. A-fib much better too. Will do this for 6 months then get tested again.

    What Do These Symptoms Mean?

    I avoid Md's as much as possible. I have been seeing an ND since 1997. Good luck, again, Doll!

    What Do These Symptoms Mean?

    I was digagnosed with systemic candida in 2003. I did the diet, and took all the anti-fungals, and got really sick, but it took about 2 years to start to clear up. I still take probiotics, and after I was diagnosed with celiac disease (2007) my digestive issues cleared up. Have you ever had your thyroid tested? Hang in there, Sweetie!! lovelove, sickchick

    Gluten? Dairy? Neither? Both?

    Hi Doll! Dairy makes me so sick, I understand how you are feeling. Tapioca and soy and carageenan all make me just as sick. I was getting so sick from all grains that I went off everything for about 2 months. (I am down to 100 pounds but I am feeling better) I am tolerating rice flours again fine- I have not bought rice itself, yet, but I am hoping it will be fine. I think tapioca is my problem, not rice. I ate an amy's gluten free pizza and did fine with everything but the cheese. It's brown rice. Not the blend that other companies use. We'll get you all figured out. :)

    I was actually making artichoke-lemon pesto and spreading that on the crust when I was still having troubles with nightshades... was very yummy but not the same. Be well! lovelove sickchick

    I was feeling sorry for myself yesterday, so I bought myself one of those rice-crust pizzas, and I did not get remotely achy from the tomato sauce!!! I am back on nightshades... I went off them March 2008. HAHAHHAHA so happy. BE WELL EVERYONE!!! lovelove sickchick

    Want To Cry-So Frustrated!

    Always trust your intuition (and your body). You will figure it all out- you are in the right place- and don't let your DR get you down. I had to beg my ND to have the blood test done- she was pushing a Thyroid diagnosis- but ALL my tests over the years were perfect. My blood test was positive for celiac disease. Breathe and hang in there! I know how stressful it is.

    Adrenal Glands And Celiac

    I have Adrenal Exhaustion and Celiac Disease. I sleep 12 hours a day- so I am the opposite of what is happening to you! I can't drink coffee and I am off all stimulants. Are you having mood swings, too? When I first started showing symptoms, I was mood swinging all over the place- 3 days down- 2 days up... and I was having very intense psychadelic dreams HAHAHA Hope you get it all under control! lovelove sickchick
