Hi all,

I finally went over my results with my GI doctor this morning. Everything was normal except the celiac panel. I discovered that I was IgA deficient, which makes the other two celiac antibody tests inconclusive. Perhaps I have it; perhaps I don't. GI is going to do a biopsy in a couple of weeks, and will also look into my gastritis problem. Whether I have it or not, it feels good that at least a doctor is bothering to investigate, as my last GI did NOTHING except put me on potent drugs that it made no sense for me to be on (entocort-ec).

Arthritis is holding--take the full 15 mg of mtx tonight. I took 12.5 mg last week and didn't suffer any side effects that I could tell. This week I have a full 3 days to recuperate from the mtx before heading back to work.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day!

El, it sounds like things may finally be progressing in the right direction for you. What exactly is IgA deficient mean?

I just spend the last 2 1/2 hours at Chuck E Cheese....isn't that nice?  tongue  My kids have been dying to go, so I figured we'd celebrate the 3 day weekend (today was a 1/2 day of school for my 1st grader) by going.  My throat is not wincingly painful now...it's just hurts enough to still bother my ear and ensure I have a drink most of the day. I'm getting ready for my 2nd dose of antibiotics soon.....to have this much improvement in one day is amazing! 

Well, my weekend is filled with cleaning the house. I've barely gotten back on my RA drugs, so the lack of them has already started kicking in  sad ......hopefully I can do well enough to get the house in order and all the sickies aired out before it starts going in to quarantine status. nono

Have a great weekend everyone.

Hi CaMama--glad to hear that you're on the mend! I haven't taken my girls to Chuck E. Cheese in a couple of years now, but I think we may be due for a trip. I'm not really sure what IgA deficient means, but I've read that it is common among those of us with AI disease. And it can mask things like Celiac disease, which is why it rendered the rest of the panel meaningless. Doctor assured me that if the panel was positive, he'd biopsy too. The only time he wouldn't biopsy is if it was negative.

As far as I can tell IgA deficiency is the most common immune deficiency problem, and it makes you more susceptible to respiratory and GI infections? Other than that, I don't think it's that big of a deal, unless with me it is masking Celiac Disease.

Hope you get back to your RA drugs soon. Those drugs take so long to kick in, I would hate to have to stop them like you did!

Hey Ducks and Erin, I don't want to be the school snitch heree but there are a lot of threads being used to advertise an individual's commercial product - well that is what it looks like to me. It hasn't appeared on this thread yet but i guess it is only a matter of time. I'm sorry but I just don't think it right. I'll shut up now and go sit at the back of the class. It's stair rodding here in downton Apsley so I'm off to lie in my straw and watch the rain drip off the roof.
Stay well y'all.

I'm really really REALLY depressed today.  I guess if I do my best to get through it all, it will pass eventually.......but most of today I have just wanted to cry....maybe tonight when the man is at work and the kids are in bed I can cry it out of my system. sad   I think it is just stuff that has been building up these last few weeks making me sad and possibly the antibiotics are putting me over the edge topped with a little female timing thing (sorry guys!)......<sigh>

Yes thank you BEAR!  i just read it myself.  it's not "illegal" to talk about personal use of products, but there's a fine line...like you saw, when personal experience & sharing isn't the issue and soliciting is the hidden agenda. nono
 
it's always safer to never put an email address right on a post, our username has a little biography section one can fill in...it's to the left of the post here on the screen, click on it if you haven't seen yours yet! :-) ..too easy for spammers & viruses and all to find ya if an email is written plain outin the open.
thanks for the heads up Bear! :-)
 
sad  awe Camama...just late last night i had written a loooong post here...and my PC overheated & shut down before i submitted it!  you would have appreciated it however, as i wrote what's been going on with me the past 2 months. (i haven't written too much medically about what's been going on with me here as to not be a major downer nor scare anyone off treatment)...
BUT I ALSO feel "isolated" and left behind & left out of things ya know?  i had a good cry thursday & friday too.
definitely sad...can't say i'm very depressed...but really feeling isolated & alone.
{{{{{{{{{{{{{{hugs camama}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
i mean...this is hard! it ain't easy.
you hang on in there tiger.  you do & i will too. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
 
if all else fails i will UPS you a Jackson-5 tongue
peace/love

My son would love a Jackson-5! I would like a kitty as well. Sadly, my dog would probably eat the kitty (she hates cats for some reason) and my husband (who is severely allergic and does not like them either) would probably serve it to her! tongue sad (I'm not sure exactly which emoticon is appropriate here!)

Man, misery apparently loves company - Erin, though I'm not happy you feel the same way (isolated and alone says it all) - it did give me some comfort like you were holding my hand across the states with comoplete understanding......so, here's a squeeze back (I won't squeeze too hard!) <<<SQUEEEEZZEE>>>> Now I want to cry again.

oh boy, just got a call from mother-in-law....more to add to my sadness (maybe my telepathic abilities already knew this and that's why the depression hit me so hard today)...apparently my husband's uncle was found passed out this morning in his chair not breathing. He had a massive heart attack. His wife (my mother-in-law's sister) found him and called 911 who got him breathing on life support. It's not looking good and I guess the wife has to make a decision in the morning if he's not breathing on his own by then. They just lost their mother last October.......

I'm sorry for such a depressing post. I hope everyone has a decent weekend. I got no cleaning done today - though I did make it to the grocery store. <sigh> ****

Erin, camama, what can I say that will be of any help to you when you have to suffer so long in relative silence My flippancy isn't appropriate here but I wish you both swift cessation of your pain. I have got the gong bashers and chanters in the back room of the cave workng overtime to help you - mommy bear is a buddhist - each to their own but f t works for you don't knock it..     darn it I must get ths i key fixed.
Thanks for beng understanding about the ad thread Erin, I just thought it funny that 6 threads were hit on the same day pushing a product..........
Well t's Sunday morning here in downtown Apsley and the rain is still falling so it must be a public holiday weekend. This is called a bank holiday here in the UK from when the banks used to close for a rest day for staff back n the mists of time [ that's how I was told it when I was just a cub]. They were usually based upon liturgical dates, Christmas, Easter, and this one, although called now the spring bank holiday, was originally the Monday after Whit Sunda but they play around with the dates these days. Anyway, it traditionally rains on bank holiday weekends. I believe someone said it was memorial day over there?
Is it raining where you are?
 
It is now only 8 weeks before the bear is due to fly to the states and I am really looking forward to it and meeting soe good people who work in the same field as I do but I hope to have a good social life while I am there. I have found one person who wants to go with me when I vsit the Laughing Lizard Lounge in Old Town Alexandria at lelast once while  am there. I went there 4 years ago and saw a cracking band there - Andrew Brown Band - you heard of them?  Who knows who I will see this time? I am just hoping the body will hold up long enough - I've put off a hip replacement once so that I can go and I really am having trouble walking most days now. Iwas thinking of asking my doc to give me a shot before I go to ease the pain and if you knew me well enough to understand my aversion to needles of any description sad ............and even the mere mention of it....... eyes get the picture? Bg bear afraid  if pne needles lol. tongue Blasted i key.
 
Well it's time to mosie down to the paper shop and pick up my daly fix of news around the world - I watch CNN and Fox occasionally but Fox s so ............what's the word?  No, sorry, no poltical comment allowed is there? nono   Naughty bear. I was talking on another thread where the topic was cats and I used the Englsh common word for a cat and it goy blanked 
out tongue   we call them ***** cats but I'm expecting the same to happen here. Words have such different meanings this side of the pond.
Well it's bye from downtown Apsley wherre the bears are hairy, the cubs are good looking and the mommy bears always right.
Stay well people.

Hugs, CaMamma.  I too have had a lump the size of an orange in my throat.  Last night the dam broke.  Hubby was gone to a roping and I had the house to myself.  And as someone? mentioned, it feels as though I'm being left behind as everyone else continues on with life.  I'm no longer able to ride and I sure can't spend the day watching ropers chase a cow.  I have decided that as I'm not getting any younger I need to go back to the basics...doing the things that bring me pleasure.  Hubby is set for the rest of his life, new pickup, new trailer, 3 horses, new tractor, etc.  Sitting on my brother's boat dock with a fishing pole is a dream to me.  2 of my brothers have side by side lake "cabins" that are nicer than what I live in.  So I think one of those new T@B camper trailers is just the ticket for me.  Plug in to one of the cabins and have myself a ball.  I'll have to order one as they are in demand right now.  They are re-inventions of the old teardrop campers.  Can you see me going down the highway in my VW Bug, pulling a teardrop?  I can. 

In dire need of R&R here.  Think hubby has another roping today or tomorrow.  Been having "tummy attacks".  I guess it's part of the autoimmune gift we all have.  Planning to take it easy today and get rested up.  Grandson is staying the night tonight as both parents work tomorrow.  He's 9 and maintenance-free. 

Bear, I too saw the juice pitch.  I use the stuff but would not dream of promoting it here. 

Have a great (what's left of the) weekend.  Boo

Ok, Guys....Happy Memorial Day.  Last day of long weekend.  Spent most of yesterday looking at options for new back yard fence with the hubby.  Could have gotten thrown out of a couple of places.  Hubby thinks corral panels make a good back yard and I'm tired of his hillbilly ideas.  Yes, I was cranky and hurting but if I don't go along I'll end up with something stupid for a back yard.  mad He frustrates me.  Picked out the wooden picket fence and said it's that or nothing.  Then had to come home and step everything off and put in markers.  Saga continues..."We could shortcut here, I could use corral panels here, tie this into pasture fence, might want to park the trailer back here.....Ugh!  Finally told him "never mind, I'll get a little house in town and you can come visit me".  devil

As you can tell, I'm not very good at these couples decisions.  Yup, I'm going to need to get back on the antidepressants soon as I can really see a difference in my sleeping and pain management, not to mention being allowed to go to public places (lol).  My Sweetie is a doll and trying to make me happy.  Bless his heart.  It's got to be so hard living with someone with chronic pain.  I expect him to load up his pony and find a roping today after our ordeal yesterday.  He deserves it.  We were married in 1973 so he usually knows "when to hold'em and when to fold'em".  Heehee.

I hear ya, Boo.

We've been inside all weekend. Kids are sick. Gonna have to take son to doctors tomorrow. he had the flu over 2 weeks ago and his nose is still spewing out sticky green stuff (ewww!) we noticed last night his neck on one side is severely swollen. His energy level hasn't been 100% since he was sick, though he says he feels fine.

Have a great last long weekend day!***

Oh my goodness, CaMama. I hope he gets better soon. Green stuff sounds bacterial (such the medical professional am I).
I put out more daylillies today. They are so beautiful and maintenance-free except for watering. I've had some in front of my house for years and they just bounce back every spring. It's been raining on and off all day. Glad I didn't load up and go to the lake.

Isn't it nice when your garden cooperates!? :-)   We have a bunch of daffodils that bloom every year. They are so nice. I wish they'd last longer. We have a handful of them that grow the stems, but bulbs never bloom. I keep hoping one of these years they'll bloom! The white and yellow ones bloom, the ones that are not blooming are supposedly different colored ones.
 
Yeah, the really swollen neck is kind of spooky and knowing how painful my neck was, I can imagine his is pretty sensitive. He had scarlet fever a few years back (which, if not treated w/in 7 days can be fatal or cause life-long problems), and since I was treated for strep this past week, I'm a little freaked out now worrried he's had something that needed to be treated a week ago.
 
Speaking of, I took my last antibiotic today. Throat has a small lump in it still, but the RX did me WONDERS and it doesn't hurt!!!! Maybe it'll all be gone tomorrow. yeah
 
Nite all.

Moanin..


Camama...I'm sorry you are down :( sometimes I wonder if the whole autoimmune thing just gets to us, and adds to our feelings of depression or feeling down.

Boo...reading your post made me think of my first husband! When my children were very little, we bought a house (cute house) and my then husband decided he was going to renovate it...well....a year later, he had it completely gutted, and a huge hole in the floor. It was ridiculous. He would go from room to room, tearing apart without fixing one first. When we divorced, I gave him the house (who would want it?) and to this very day, it is still in the same condition it was then! My family still gets a laugh out of it every now and then:)

Bear..I have not "met" you yet, but welcome. I didn't get a chance to reply to your other post on the other board, but yes my husband would like to have a child and is very set on another IVF. This weekend was a holiday and my childrens dad came and picked them up for the long holiday since he is working in a nearby state, and my husband became sullen and pouty because of it..he always gets that way because he is jealous of the fact that he has to share the kids with their dad, and that they were excited to see him and wanted to go. He tells me if he had a child of his own he wouldn't feel this way...*sigh*. I also wanted to tell you that you write very well, I enjoy your posts!

I'm still doing the MTX and I feel yucky but not nearly as much as the previous weeks, so I think it is getting better.

My oldest son has a presentation today called passages that will determine if he passes into high school, since he goes to a non-traditional school, and he was dressed up and looked so handsome. My oldest is going to high school next year and I asked him if he could just say 9th grade for me, because the thought of him going into high school..well I'm not ready for that!! But he said no mom, its HIGH SCHOOL! Where does the time go? this makes me sad :(

WHAT THE HELL IS IT WTH MEN? I'm not perfect by   nono any means nobody is, but in a relationship that is also a PARTNERSHIP, wehave to put aside some of our one sided and deeply held views where there is conflict and opposition. It is called compromise and, yes, love. I stillfear for your health momto3 if you go ahead with another IVF the way you feel, just to please your man. The emotional blackmail he is appearing to exert on you is not helpful to you here. Have a go at me if you thnk I am out of order here and I wll shut up about the matter but that is what this forum is for, supporting each other by hook or by crook and it is surely up to each other how we police this. There are little other things that deeply worry me [maybe unnecessarily so]. Jealousy isn't an emotion that can be turned on and off at whim and it is the most powerful and potentially destructive of negative emotions. I am thankful that a. your kids dad still takes an interest and sees them [so many don't] b. The kids are excited at the thought of seeing their dad no matter how much of a hand your current man has had in bringing them up. Your current man should be grateful there is a bond there not resent it it. Having been down the road  explained I had to encourage mommy bear to accept the small mercy we had been given. I knnow your circs are different but for your sake your man could showsome understanding of your situation. 
You didn't have a go at me after the last ostng so I sense some sympathy with my views although love and loyalty would prevent you outright chopping him off at the legs. Iif you really haev had enoough - even for the time being, get your doc to write him about the dangers of anothersesson at this stage in your life. This looks to me like the needs of a man who maybe is scared of losing you cementing his insecurity [and you maybe agreeing IVF to keep him?].
I'm sorry momto3 but there is so much more I could have sad but not here - next time we're shooting pool maybe?
I'll shut up for good now on this topic but you know where my mail address is if you want to use stronger language to tell me to 'butt out'.
 
Apart from that it has finally stopped raning here in downtown Apsley but apparently that is because the clouds that were last week forming over eastern USA are going to dump American rain on us again tomorrow, American rain that has been denied to the poor American farmer who I am sure wants and needs it far more than the residents of Apsley do. You can just imagine it, as we leave home going to work we look up at the sky and say 'yup, the stars and stripes in the cloud formation are a dead giveaway- those Americans are stair rodding us again'. The prevailing winds come from across the Atlantic and if you stand on the beaches near Lands End in Cornwall you can pick up all sorts of thngs: soda bottles, mickey mouse gloves, 'vote Nixon' hats, teeth braces, 'maid of the mist' pins, icons all of americana. We do drollery here.
Boo, you wouldn't have lasted long living inEnglang with a man who destroys the wainscotting to get rid of mice. You'd have been flooded outfirst taste of rain. I once lived in a squat where I gotstranded upstars because one wnter night a resident [bloody i key again] got colod, lit a fire, got the house warm and  I nearly fell through the hole left where the stairs used to be. Foiled the bailiffs for a whle though.
That's all from Apsley, where the rain is American, the residents have big mouths and the bear expects death by wording squad.
Good evening and stay well

Oh, Bear. I'm sure you won't get clobbered for giving your opinion. You just care deeply.
More rain expected today. I'm wondering if I'm England or Oklahoma. Flowers are growing great though. It just makes for sluggishness and joint pain. I made some really stupid mistakes at work yesterday and kicked myself more than usual. Just can't get on top again. Not only the physical production has to get done but I also have accounts, daily sheets, IRS, bills to pay, supplies,...... The list goes on and on. I finally had to leave early and just leave the paper work sitting there. Sometimes all I can do is get under the covers and sleep the pain away. Really was physically depleted after just a few hours at work. Maybe a flare of some kind. Hoping today is better. Boo

Bear!!!! As Boo said its fine to speak your mind...Aside from my husband, I don't talk about the IVF with anyone. My mother in law feels that we attempted before and it failed and we should move on, plus she doesn't think it is a good idea all the way around. It's not that I don't understand where he is coming from about having a child of his own..I remember it took me a long time to get my first child, and I really wanted to be a mom. Having said that..when I met him I was very honest and upfront and told him I could not have anymore children, so he knew this going into the relationship, that I was a single mom with my 3 kiddos. In the beginning he was fine since he was in grad school, and had never thought about having children until he bonded with mine and that is when it all started. Although a few months into our relationship, I didn't really feel it was fair to him to be with someone who already had children with no possibility of having more. I tried to tell him he should find someone single, because he deserved to get married and have a family of his own. (he really is a wonderful guy) I knew down the road he would change his mind and sure enough here we are!

I would like to pursue adoption as a possibility, but he knows that 38 is my cutoff age, and after that I don't want to pursue either one!! At that point I will feel that my time has passed and my children are getting older, my oldest will be 17! There are things in this world I would like to do and starting over after that just isn't an option.

Boo..it has been raining here as well and it does make the joints hurt! Yesterday it poured all day, and I hurt all over. I hope you were able to get some rest, and are feeling better today.

Happy Hump Day everybody!

iHi momto3 I dd post a really long piece saying sorry f  upset you but just as I was going to post it my puter crashed and so I'll have to do it again. I'll shut up from now on and I never doubted your partners lovev for you it's just that sometimes it gets lost in all the othe smeg that goes on n a relationship - to hell wiith this i key!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have come to be very fond of all the people on this thread and I stick out more as I am the only bloke on this thread unless one or two of you are men so far in to your feminine side that you've gone native. I would just hate anything bad to happen to peeps for what I consider to be the wrong reasons. Tha's all.
 
Happy HUMP day???? DO you know what a hump is in the UK? It's the sort of thing if done in public would get you arrested under public decency laws - it's good old rumpy pumpy that's what t s. SEE? no I agan.
 
What is a hump to an american? Anything to do with all this american rain we're getting over here?
It has finally stopped raining here in downtown Apsley but we have been told it is only a respite to allow us to look at and remember what the sun looks like. I felt the same way about my father when I was a young child. I lived n the same house as hm but sometime I would go to bed Sunday night and then not see hm until he came home from work on Friday . My dad was a docker - I think they were called longshoremen in the US. He worked hard and was made redundant after the last really big national strike in 72 and he was dead by the end of May 75. He was a good man. I can only tinker at the edges.
Mommy bear is cooking tonight so t can be her feet that swell up tonight. We got the ice pack ready for my ankles first.
 
Hey people of the thread, there is someone I would love to find and she lives/lived n New York, worked as a child psychologist in a clinic in Brooklyn, went to college in Rochester and had a flat in Queens when I last saw her in 87. Are there any web sites you can direct me to to see f I can trace her? Like wise some photograhs I have of my late mother's relatives in the US - don't know where exactly but a wedding photograph has a Philly address on the back. Any advice on which sites to use would be most welcome by this bear and loads of bear hugs will be sent your way.
I would just love to see that old friend of mine again no matter her 'status' and as I am visitng.......and that aplies to all of you - just jump on the bus and get off at the hlton on the Hill and ask for the Bear and we will have a few beers in the bar cave. It would be just awesome to actually meet some of you - is that against the rules Ducky/Erin? I must admit I haven't read them thoroughly but did pick up on the non-commercial aspect of what you can and can't do. Having said that have you heard about...........................

Bear cub's just walked in - total none recognition -what the hell I love him just the same.
momto3 hang in there and something wll work itself out but each party must compromise; Boo I hope you are starting to get well and by tomorrow you willbe chasing the postman; Ducky and erin K, my most 'umble apologies if I have been OTT in my practice but I say things how I feel them and then go back afterwards and try to repair the damage - there are someamazingly tolerant and understanding people on this thread - the best.

It's goodnight from downtown Apsley where the trains run through the gardens - sorry, yards, all the music seems to be Cuban and Dubya is a thing  you scare the bear cubs with [who said the evil Sauron perished in the flames of Mount Doom?]

Oh, Bear! You are a funny guy! Wednesday is Hump Day (not what you're thinking). Half the work week is over so if you get over the hump, you've got it made. Can't figure what's happened with my computer. Can't see the whole message without moving back and forth. Arrgh!
