Another OT- I'm probably about to get banned (and even if I don't I probably won't be back because I am pretty f-ing sick of being censored for silly shit... on top of this signature thing really irking me), so you guys can find me on FB. JR, Kathy, Pat, Carren, and Margo have me on their friends list, so they can help you find me if you want. (Or if there's any newbies that you think I should chat with.) Or you guys can email me at *****. (will be back later to delete if I'm not banned first.)

i'm with ya, jessica.

ILs are gone, but we're dealing with the dog and now we suddenly have to move 4hrs south for 4m so dave can take a class and actually finish his degree (suprise, the class we were told would transfer didn't. so he didn't graduate. we thought he graduated nearly TWO YEARS ago.)

as much as i love all of you, i cannot devote as much time to this board as i have in the past. i will keep up on FB for sure, though.

Yay on corn! We actually bought some more corn on the cob for dinner :
Yes, you inspired me to try corn, your tamales just sounded so darned good! And thanks for the thorne powder, tasteless is good, I can hide powder in his yogurt if it doesn't taste. I also have a sublingual methyl B12 on the way - I think I'm OK, but I assume DS is low, and I figure it can't hurt to try it for both of us. Now that zinc/hcl is maybe working better, if I can get his deficiencies patched a little, maybe he can keep them filled!

I'm excited
Just did that 3 months ago. My back still aches, LOL. It's awesome to look at your new floors every day, you'll love it. What kind of wood did you get?

I think our corn reaction might be to skip the usual 6:30/7pm bedtime, and end up with a tantrum building until she crashes. Tonight we let it loose and she was out by 9. Last night we tried to keep her happy and it didn't work and she was up until 10. I have such a hard time convincing dh that reactions like this are real. He's more inclined to blame the drop in milk supply. Even though that happened like 3 weeks ago... Or 'normal, well adjusted terrible twos.' Sigh.

It always makes me so sad to see people go.

I just learned something cool from FitDay that had never occurred to me before. If you use the aluminum free baking powder, it contains monocalcium phosphate. MonoCALCIUM. It never occurred to me before as a source of calcium. Duh.

Hi everyone,
we were away for an extended weekend and I am still trying to catch-up here. I don't know how you ladies keep up with FB, I get totally lost everytime I go there .

Were were doing so well being wheat free and corn free, until MIL cooked this weekend. She not only put wheat-flour in the stew to thicken it, but also totally artificial stock-cubes. Not sure how that constitutes additive / wheat / corn free. DS2 has been miserable all day, just wanting to nurse and having one tantrum after another : Well at least now I am sure wheat is a no-no.

Has anyone tried sprouted wheat (Essene) bread? Aparently sprouting the wheat kernels breaks down the gluten, making the bread easier to degest even for gluten intollerant people.

I think Essene flour is a lovely idea, but should probably be reserved until healing is complete.


I stink. I've been stinking for at least a month now. I *know* this is detox. What exact nasties I'm eliminating I know not. If it were going into my breastmilk, Taslyn would show it, right? But she's in a good patch...

Get this. I stink but only my left armpit. What is up with THAT?

OK, sometimes this place just cracks me up.

Shannon, sorry about the corn reaction . Behavioral stuff sucks. My DH gets it for gluten and casein (both of which cause "autism" behaviors to get stronger), but things like sals making him head butt me more are harder to convince him of ("maybe it's his teeth/lack of nap/had a long day/too much TV").

Okay, I obviously haven't had my coffee yet, so to speak. I had to re-read this a couple of times. At first I was like "Her DH headbutts her and has autism behaviors?"
Shannon Sorry about the reaction.

LOL - I should have had coffee before posting (if I drank coffee...). Nah, DH has other behaviors, not those ones .

Paging Kathy,

So I'm thinking of doing creme brulee for DSs actual birthday (just us). Do you use sucanat, turbinado or another form of cane sugar?

yeah guess I will wait with the Essene bread for a bit.

I have been stinking lately too, since I started taking supps - I wonder how long it will last? I usually don't even need to use deodorant, and now I smell 'sweaty' even with a natural one. I refuse to use anything stronger, guess I will just have to stink...
I have the same concerns about my little ones nursing, I keep hoping that if there are any nasties going into my breastmilk the kids would show it, and that I would actually recognise it for what it is.

I used cane sugar (regular old processed stuff). A lot of the recipes I saw used raw sugar for the top crusty part. Which reminds me... I have one more in the fridge.... I'm thinking next time I'd actually scape some vanilla bean into it to make it even more vanilla-y since the coconut taste is pretty strong. And jiggle it when you're taking it out of the oven to make sure that it's "set". DD2 saw the extra one in the fridge this morning but I said it was MINE. Hee hee.

DS couldn't have it because of the eggs, so cane sugar was fine for us. Beet sugar would also work. Not sure if palm sugar melts the same way (though I could take out the torch and try it!!).

So Ds tried to juice a marble this morning. I am so impressed. Apparently, a marble is harder than the auger in my BRAND NEW masticating juicer.

Bummer!

I just want to pop in and say hi, from the little I skimmed, I think I missed a lot! And not in a good way.

Will read the rest of the old thread and the first page of this one, just wanted to get back to a place where people talk my language. I think I almost ticked off my SIL by suggesting that health things happen for a reason, maybe the doc doesn't know, but there _is_ a reason, and looking for that could be useful. Tried to be tactful, really tried, but I think she's not really interested. Sometimes reality smacks me upside the head and I realize just how far from normal I've strayed.
post #40 of 1021
Carren, ACK! hope the auger is cheaply replaceable. Taslyn is forever sticking things in my mill and my juicer. I continually have to check the hoppers.

Welcome back Tanya...

I took T for her 2y WBV today and got the pedi to order the MTHFR test, lead test, iron test, stool bacterial and reductase test and urine metabolite tests!!!
