Oh honey, that sucks.  Really sucks.  I'm so sorry they don't understand both how hard it is for you and how important it is to talk about these issues.  It's so hard to feel misunderstood.

 

Hugs.

(I guess because for some reason he might feel he was responsible.) So because this topic might scare another child, we're not welcome to talk about food allergies openly (ftr- I wasn't planning on talking about death AT.ALL. I repeatedly stated that I wanted to be open about it so that it WASN'T scary or weird for people.) I guess that watching her actually have a reaction would be completely unfair to the other children too, and would be really selfish of us to want to expose other kids to that. sigh.

I don't know whether to start screaming obscenities, or bang my head on a wall, or just sit and cry all day. greensad.gif Probably going to choose option 3.


eta: hug.gif Kathy. And I think it's an excellent idea for them each to have their own Amazon xmas wishlist. lol.gif

Thanks you guys. I've already unsubscribed from the entire group, so there won't be any more emails to read. It sucks though... except for the couple parents that had a problem with this, it was a really great group of people. greensad.gif

JR, the mouse has to be long dead.  It has been about 2 months now.  If it were still in there, having survived 85deg heat for a few weeks, and no food or water, it would definitely have been killed by the below-freezing temperatures the past week.

She has done nothing.  Although she just had a full celiac panel done.  So other than that, nothing.

I'm sure it is.

I think I might be extra paranoid this week. bag.gif

dd's just about eaten the whole loaf of bread.  dh will be disappointed.  I think I'll be making more.  I think it's in my best interest to make some sourdough starter right about now.

I'm officially tired.  This new ALA round is, um, on the high end of the dosage I can tolerate, apparently.  My body temp is about 1*F lower than it was several days ago and I'm in the same part of my cycle, I am assuming my thyroid function is taking a temporary hit.  Kids are great, but we are having a TV day today with semi-pathetic food (glad to have leftover lentil soup from a few days ago).  So my sleep was weird last night (thus I was responding to lots of threads when I should've been in bed), but extra sleep the night before didn't help.

 

Oh, and a mini-rant?  My dad just sent me a URL for a guy's website that talks about brain function and stuff like GABA, serotonin, all that good stuff.  And he sells supps, which is fine--but dammit, why do you need to put 300 mg of ALA into a brain boosting supplement?  I hope my parents haven't ordered any, 300 mg would still mess with me, and for my parents?  Yeah, bad news.  :fingersx that they are just learning and using the dietary modification parts as something to start thinking about (which would probably be a good, helpful thing).

CS grouphug.gif  Oh those people suck so big-time, I can't even say it.  That attitude, what the hell are they teaching their children--really, THAT'S the attitude that they're learning?  I am stunned and appalled and want to write all sorts of things that are just mean.  Well, I'd say accurate, but some could interpret as mean.  I am so sorry, and since you guys have really been needing social outlets, I'm doubly sad for you.

For me, reducing stress was a biggie, and I quit work, even when it wasn't a great financial move for us.  And you're pregnant--not sure how you usually work things postpartum, my DCP only took a week off (and scheduled her induction, I could've been ok with the uncertainty but I guess not everyone could and she didn't have complications from her inductions), but only a week off seems rough with a new baby.  If you can cut back on your responsibilities, I'd say do it.  And earlier, with the BP, I totally blanked on you being pregnant.  Salt, stress reduction, salt, more liquids, salt, what are you eating/not eating?

 Could be hypothyroid and a food intolerance. Not necessarily celiac (or even gluten). Could be any food(s). Has she tried keeping a detailed food diary (down to ingredient level) to see if she can pinpoint a food or foods? But while she's still consuming gluten, it's not hard to test for celiac.


 

But Chlobo's DH has celiac, doesn't he?  I assumed SIL was DH's sister... our language is not that precise with family relationships, not sure if I could be wrong.  If it is someone related by blood to DH, then I'd say cut gluten, get a few good supps going and then see how she's doing in a bit--some things should resolve.  Well, in normal people.  :hug

OK. THAT - the bolded part - made me laugh out loud. thank you. And you need to cut your DH down to half an advil a day, because you don't want him addicted to pain killers. Give him a bit of rope to bite on. I say that sort of in jest.

We've had 3 mice nest in our grill this past summer. DH finally left the grill cover off. There were little babies attached each time. I'm ok with mice (don't love 'em in my grill, but they don't freak me out), but DH does research with mice, so I left him to handle them.

Much better than the quarter-sized hole I had been imagining.

post #170 of 770

LOL Susan!  I totally agree about Kathy's DH.

 

A few years ago, we went to my parents' summer house, and our cat was very interested in the barbecue grill.  We opened it and there was a nest full of baby squirrels.  The mother relocated them over the course of the next 2 hours.  

 

I'm not afraid of mice.  Or snakes.  The only thing that really gets me is roaches.

Hugs. I don't know the details but it sounds awful. I'm so sorry.

Yeah. Ate half a can of beans for lunch and had bean soup yesterday (and the day before). Guess I'll go pop some MTHF.

What're co-factors for folate recycling again?

Folate recycling?  B12, serine/glycine, b6, b2 I think.  But that's just based on vague memory, so don't take my word for it.

Thanks Tanya!!! your perspective helps.

 

I was planning of taking about 2-3wks off depending on when I deliver. If it's at the beginning of March, then the 2wks before March break and they are taking March Break off anyways, so that would be 3wks total. My daycare families all plan for all the mth just in case i need more time off, so it's not a prob to take the whole mth off. I will continue to do b/a school, just because it's not much problem at that time either. I have ot be awake and functionning for my girls anyways.

 

I just don't see how I can do all of those plus taking care of a newborn. Now my newborns are pretty good once i find what is bothering them but you still need to care for them alot in a day and be waken up at night a few times, etc...

 

Last night, i mentioned to dh that i wasn't feeling well and that maybe for my health and for the baby, plus for the girls, that maybe I need to stop daycare. :( He listened and said that my health was more important and if i feel like that then i should give my notice.  We probably will make it if there isn't any big expenses like needing a new van right away or a new fridge. lol

 

I'm trying to eat more salt. Drinking was a bit hard when i was sick the last few wks because of ummm :blush: that prob that you can get when you are pg and cough at the same time. So I guessing that mentally i reduce how much I drank. I'm just now realising how much i stop drinking and inscreasing it by alot. Now i'm going to the bathroom often. what a pita. lol I'm also on declectin for m/s, nausea and gag reflex, so i'm eating more but that doesn't mean it's all healthy. I think that i need to do a grocery shopping and get all the good food and start eating healthier. I really do want to but ugh nothing is tempting but junk food that are salty or sweet.
