    The Lyme Disease Thread

    With symptoms I would bet a lyme doctor would give a diagnosis based on this test. It's a clinical diagnosis. Bands 30 and 31 can actually be retested to clarify whether it's positive from Lyme or from cross-reactivity. I would bet gluten sentivity as a result of Lyme. Once I treated Lyme, my gluten sensitivity went away.

    Yes, my bird just wants out. He doesn't like being caged up. He's been out all day, so he's happy.

    Great question!! I have a beautiful cockatoo. I should have name him "Houdini". We broke a couple of the ceramic bowls, so I bought new ones. Same thing but plastic. Well, he figured out how to get the plastic bowls out of the place where they go, then how to take off the hook holding the part of the cage closed where the bowl goes, then how to take off the whole section of cage off after the hook was removed, so that he can get out. I think I finally outsmarted that bird .... I put bottle lids underneath the bowls so he can't lift them up at an angle to get them out. So I'm wondering, how did he keep any of the birds on the arc at all? They surely only stayed there if they wanted to!!

    The Lyme Disease Thread

    The Lyme can be a trigger for the celiac just like any stressor can. Mainstream medicine will only treat Lyme for a month, but often it requires longer treatment. Also, it's considered remission when you are feeling better, so if you're feeling bad now, you may need more Lyme treatment. Testing won't show if the disease is active or not, only exposure, so unfortunately, there isn't a blood test that can show you whether your Lyme is active again. There are herbs you can take if you don't care to go back on antibiotic treatment, which is hard on the gut, especially since you're already fighting celiac. Interestingly, I was first thought to have celiac disease. Then the testing came out negative, but I had improvement on the gluten-free diet. Then the improvement stopped and I backslid. Eventually I discovered I had Lyme Disease and with treatment the gluten intolerance went away ..... that wouldn't happen with celiac. It's just interesting. I still cook a lot of gluten-free meals .... after two years of no gluten, it becomes habit and I find I like them better.

    It is boring, and unfunny, too. Still says 2:32 on mine, but my computer says 1:39.

    I'm tired and unfunny today, too .... and I can't quite figure out why it says this was posted at 2:32 and it's only 1:37

    I've recently tried to drink again .... all tries, no matter how little, it keeps me up all night. If I drink too much (like 2 1/2 glasses of wine), then I am not only awake, but feel bad. Not sure if one glass of wine is worth no sleep ..... Good idea! Hubby just made me brunch!! Waffles and eggs!

    Can't you have potatoes? Or do you think he used something he shouldn't have? Sounds delicious. I'm anemic right now, I could use a steak, but instead I'm making chili .....
