  1. One of the other implications for me has been financial, it costs a fortune to buy the gluten free stuff. Is it the same for you guys or are things just as cheap or cheaper?

    Stick to the basics like fruit, vegetables and meat for now. It is more cost effective and you get more nutritional bang for the buck. The processed gluten free stuff is expensive so I don't buy too much of that.

    I spent 36 years in a gluten induced brain fog comatose like state. It cost me my marriage and almost destroyed my career. It's been five years and life is good now.

  2. Your's is a familiar story. I went through all of that but was twice your age when I found out what was wrong. The first 36 years of my life are like a big black hole of nothiness. Now that you know what is wrong I can assure you that things will get better, much better. My life now is like nothing I could have ever imagined and it just keeps getting better.

  3. Janetw - Thank you for the link.

    Mommida - Michigan is an absolute disaster area right now and I don't see how this state will ever recover. It is going to end up becoming a low rent economic backwater. The only job opportunities I can find are in the South. I still have my current job and am only working every other week though. My brother was just told that his employer is leaving Michigan and he has a choice of Texas, South Carolina or unemployment by the end of April.

  4. I am about 99% certain I will be moving to Birmingham later this year to start a new job. I would like to know how readily available gluten free foods are and where to buy them. I used to travel to Huntsville a lot with a previous job and liked it there a lot. Any gluten free requests were readily accomodated. It was when I asked to hold the salt is when I would get funny looks from people.

  5. I was once morbidly obese and can say that weight loss doesn't happen quite the way you would expect. There would be times when I would lose a lot of pounds but my body stayed the same shape. Then there would be times when my body would change drastically but no pounds came off. I started excersizing a lot and I reached a pont where my body got smaller and the pounds increased. This was from increased muscle mass.

  6. Been there. My wife filed for divorce becuse I was too sick to take care of her. Men aren't supposed to get sick. I almost lost my job because of it. The only thing that saved me is the company I worked for at the time was so poorly managed that I was able to squeak by. When the management situation was changed I had found out what was killing me and was able to save my job. I left for a better one shortly after. Losing the wife turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. It has been a long hard fight but I managed to survive and prosper.

  7. Deb,

    This is probably difficult for you to understand because you are very much the exception rather than the rule. Most women are conditioned to live wasteful, extravagent and consumerist lifestyles. Achieving social status is the #1 goal for most women. As a man who makes a very large income and back in the dating scene the gold diggers have come out of the woodwork and I have absolutely no clue as to how they know becase I don't advertise my financial status. They all get very angry when they find out that I have a really small house and drive a reliable but non-descript car. Because of this I have voluntarily pulled myself out of the "meat market" because I am just appalled and dismayed at the behavior of women of all ages. Given the current state of the economy all of my money goes to my son's education and retirement savings.

    As to why men put up with gold diggers I have no clue because I don't tolerate them at all. It could be that most men are clueless about women. I know I was at one time. Good women are out there but there doesn't seem to be very many of them.


  8. I am not able to participate very much because I got healthy (thanks to this forum) and was able to start a new life. I was days away from getting fired from my previous job and found a new one that pays a six figure salary. Of course that means I work 60-70 hours a week but I am healthy enough and grateful enough for a second chance to do that. 2008 looks to be as busy as 2007 was but that is a good thing considering how bad things were at one time. Overall things are good and I have no reason to complain.

    I still check in from time to time but that's all I have time for.

  9. I think I'm in love.

    The Xmen evolution cartoon was suckage in a can. The original series? Was what got me into the comics in the first place. I never saw the suck in the 90's stuff though until recently when I started picking up the back issues. Damn but things did change...

    In the 90's the writing was really dumbed down and poorly done. The artwork changed and was also poorly done. Prior to the 90's comic book writers and artists had a real passion for their craft but that has sadly disappeared.

  10. Comics or series? You're looking at a die-hard Gambit/Wolverine fan here...

    I like the comics from the 70's and 80's. In the 90's the comics changed and I just didn't care for them anymore. In the early 90's there was a Saturday morning animated X-Men series that was excellent and I never missed it. A few years ago there was another animated X-Men series that was terrible. The three movies were quite good. I didn't have any particular favorite as far as characters were concerned,
