Kids build model rockets and learn about newton's laws and trig.

I agree on the coolness of rocket class.

The pain and stuff seems to be related to nerves rather than my joints. I’m not really clear. But I have a test on Friday to test the nerve function from my neck to my fingers. I think that’s what it is anyway. It involves needles and maybe small shocks, so overall a really good time. Super pumped for that. 
That's some scary stuff. Hugs

Yikes, Amanda!  I do not envy you... I'm sorry it's so bad that you're willing to put up with shocks and pricks to find out more.

 

Sara, rocket class sounds awesome. 

 

Becky, glad to hear you'll be able to get the kind of care you always wanted.

Some encouraging news regarding the group privacy issue... Cynthia said she will push the issue and have an answer for us within a week.

That's awesome thanks Jaimee!

Amanda, have you ever had acupuncture? The pricks aren't that bad, just twinge a little. And the shocks aren't shocks they are more like the sensation you get when you stick your tongue on a 9 volt. Or I have a high pain tolerance and I'm lying lol.gif Either way, I'm glad they are taking care of you!

Funny snaps from Ari.

Just had conferences. My kids are kids. DD1 is advanced in everything and gets bored and has to do extra work or tutor other kids in class. And DS is the opposite and is scraping by at everything except math, where he is way behind and has to start taking supplemental classes. But he is super popular and funny so at least he has that going for him! Lol.

I'm going to get a tattoo drawn up in a bit. Should be gettig it next week. Super excited.

True story. It's probably just because as far as common allergens go, the only ones in the paleo diet are nuts. It's gluten, soy, dairy, corn free. My husbands asthma and psoriasis completely went away. I however felt like crap on paleo, lost too much weight too fast, and had no energy. I will take my cake...

I think it's good to experiment.  It's also been my experience that doctors end up having no idea what is wrong or how to approach fixing the causes instead of treating the symptoms.   Joanie, I know you were sort of doing GAPS at one point... were things better when you were doing that?

I think the family is pretty serious about buying our bus..  :)  This is from their Facebook page.

We started with paleo a year ago and we were doing the whole no grains and limiting starches. DH did really well but I needed more carbs especially since dd is still nursing. We eat potatoes along with sweet potatoes, and the occasional rice based cracker or bread. I make pizza crust with tapioca and potato flours. More and more paleo and primal people are adding safe starches. And you can have cake, it doesn't have to be made with wheat.

Yes, things are 100% better on a completely GFCF diet. I have virtually no allergies, asthma, fibro or raynauds flareups. I just can't figure out how to eat like that while working so much, though. Stress changes my entire willpower structure. Health suffers. Ya know. Broken record over here...

Yay, Abra! Good bus news!
post #1973 of 2728

Abra, that's so awesome! I loved the video.

post #1974 of 2728
Glad to know it's not too bad, Ash. Thanks! I'm jumpy, though. So that might suck. Lol.

Jaimee, thanks for the privacy update!

I'm not really thinking diet has much to do with my issues right now.

I don't know what I'd do if I ended up with carpal tunnel. I'm sure it's only a matter of time, seeing as I type at a computer 9 hours a day. Heh. The shoulder pain I got last year from repetitive data entry was HORRIBLE. I've been having hand pain this week in that web between my thumb and pointer finger. Freakin' annoying.

I hope things get better, Amanda!

Abra, that is awesome!  I loved the video!!!  FX their loan goes through smoothly!

 

Joanie, do you think it might work if you came up with a game plan?  Like sat down and wrote out menu plans and grocery lists, then pre-cooked some staple dishes for freezing, and simply rotated the same 7 dishes every week?  You could also rotate the same snacks every other day or so.  You could look into buying some items/ingredients bulk once you have a menu plan- through a co-op or even Amazon.  I bet you would feel a lot more in control of the diet if you kept things simple and planned out.  I know you're a planner and list maker, so this would be right up your alley.  I also know you're super stressed with work and school and this sounds like adding another project.  But the reality is, if your health and life are much better when you're on this diet, you'll be saving yourself time.  Time that you spend sick, anxious, depressed, out of energy, etc. instead of time you can be productive and happy.  You also have a great resource in this group of people that are eating this way already so you all could brainstorm 7 meals (or more!) and formulate the grocery lists together.  You could call it Joanie's cookbook.  Maybe Nicole could illustrate that.

Thanks, Joanie. It's no big thing really. I mostly just ignore stuff. It's been worse recently, so I figured I'd look into it. It's carpal tunnel like pain, numbness, and tingling, but it's not specific to that area. All parts of my hands and wrists feel like that. It's weird. But I'm seriously not very concerned. I'd just like it to be slightly better, which likely won't happen! Lol.
post #1978 of 2728
Oh hey, Becky, I meant to ask earlier... Would it make sense to maybe have your DH claim an extra allowance on his W-4 elections so you guys see more on his paychecks throughout the year rather than get such a big payout at tax season? $7K is huge. Like unheard of huge for someone making what I guesstimate he makes, and that makes me think he is having far too much withheld from his paychecks.

Been reading along, trying to pay attention, but unfortunately my migraine is making it impossible.  I just want to puke... Well time to start supper prep while Eli sleeps for a bit more otherwise we are not going to eat today lol...

post #1980 of 2728
Amanda, quit downplaying it. You deserve to feel better and I'm glad you're looking into it. :-) You can't ignore health stuff. That's my thing.

Jaimee, thanks for suggesting the meal planning. I really appreciate the support here. It helps me get out of my "denial" space. Even if I don't respond all gung-ho to take charge and make changes right away, I take the suggestions to heart and think about it.

Something I thought about today while laid out on the couch with time to really think is this: I have NO IDEA what the heck I truly want to do with my life, and my mind is racing about it for hours a day. Every single day. I'm so tired of trying to figure it out, and I have no idea where to turn anymore for guidance. I'm almost done with school in 5 weeks, right, and I was actually browsing master degree programs online today when I should've been relaxing. Because I'm THAT LOST. Ugh.
