  1. The restaurant next door to me is really into the green movement and started using those corn-plastic utensils (they're biodegradable). Which is good on one hand but since I react to corn, I avoid them completely. I'm not sure what to think about them and would like to read more info. If it has been...
  2. Is anyone familiar with the Trader Joes B6/B12/folic acid sublingual? It has stevia in it, says no corn or starch in it, but has natural flavors. I had one yesterday (I had gotten them for my husband and he gave me one, and I wasn't really thinking so I took it) and maybe 8-10 hours later I started...
  3. I use Source Naturals. It tastes fine and is small. Stephanie
  4. It's really hard to eat at the fair. At my fair there is one booth that sells salad, but that is highly unusual, and the dressing would be suspect, also the possibility of having croutons in the salad or deli meats with wheat. And who goes to the fair to eat salad, anyway? It is hard, because...
  5. I haven't seen wasabi with wheat, but I have found it with citric acid, which I can't have. I buy the powdered kind which is not true wasabi (true wasabi isn't the most common - there is only one place in the U.S. that actually grows true wasabi, all the rest comes from Japan) but doesn't have citric...
  6. Sushi is just about the only place I eat out regularly. I bring my own sauce (Braggs Liquid Aminos, I can't have fermented tamari) and get simple rolls, fish, avocado, asparagus, etc. Last night we went out and for the first time I ordered the eel but when it came out I saw the brown and asked -...
  7. I wanted to point out these are CLASSIC hypoglycemia symptoms. Just testing your blood sugar once won't tell you much. I used to get like this all the time, then started chaning my diet. The proof was in the pudding when I got my own tester for blood sugar (Freestyle) and did two days of testing...
  8. Have you had your B12 levels looked at? Many people are B12 deficient and this can present in many neurological ways. If you are deficient, you need to be taking sublingual B12 or getting shots. It can be several months of supplementing before you notice an improvement but people have had many neurological...
  9. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That totally made me laugh! I'm with you on this one... Ehhxxxcellent..... I have wondered about this condition, too, because I get chest pains. I have what I was beginning to think were pleurisy pains, mainly on the left side. But the rheumatologist didn...
  10. Ahhhh, living on Gas-X. I had a yard sale last weekend and was going through old porses, etc, to sell, and kept finding all these gas-x and other anti-gas pills stashed (and in some, Imodium as well!) You don't know when you're sick until when you look back sometimes... Stephanie
  11. Yeah, you know how you put up with things when you're in love but at some point you start thinking, ok, that is down-right weird. I think he had a dysfunctional family so it was probably nice to hide out in the bathroom, but as an adult? Uh... time to get over it... I have a friend in England...
  12. Same here. Really, even his farts are worse. What's up with *some* men??? I think it's the beer. Man, I may need to change my avatar *again*! HAHAHA! Bathroom time is a good time for a chat? Well, they know what they're in for, I guess that's ok. I used to have a boyfriend, who, as an adult...
  13. I honestly didn't think anything in this thead could shock me but I read the part about poop in jars and I quickly sat back in my chair and my jaw dropped! Wow! Now that's poop-obsessed! Not fond of the orange stuff. I don't think I've seen that before. I keep wracking my brains - did I have...
  14. HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not crazy about it and only have in front of my husband when there's no option, but he doesn't seem to have a problem going in front of me! But he usually waits until I get in the shower, which gives some semblance of privacy. I have been having...
  15. B - Glad you're feeling better. Yeah, that klonopin can be nasty - when I was on it (about 6 months) my medical insurance kept changing around (off my parents, onto the county insurance at the time) and they took me off klonopin - COLD TURKEY! Four days of pure hell, then the next month was uncomfortable...
