You know, saying "ignore this thread" to this group is like saying "don't push the big red button!" 

Homeschoolers.     They always think the rules don't apply to them.

Coming out of my long time lurking because I couldn't ignore this thread..  :leaving:

Oh my goodness.  A neighbor and her ADHD son (who dd babysits) came over to see Juliet.  This boy was starting to come into the house (which I don't mind in theory but his mom obviously did not want him to come in), climbing our tree (much to his mother's dismay), flying here . . . flying there. . . .  Mom doesn't seem to have a lot of control so I had to use all my tricks to keep him from killing himself.

Not unless I duct tape his mouth closed and duct tape him to the wall. He won’t stay in his room alone or with sisters, so now quiet time is his sisters get to have quiet time while I sit on the couch with him and watch mighty machines and pray that he gets droopy enough to fall asleep. That happens once or twice a week. But today he was being a real pill, talking constantly, flopping around, kicking me. I’m really tired of being a punching bag.

 

Bribery worked at my house. Just sayin'. A timer and a box of matchbox cars and fruit roll-ups made my 2012 and 2013 a lot saner.

:grouphug: Slache. I hope you do feel better tomorrow. Two more weeks of gluten, right?

No. I'm done. I'm supposed to, but no. I have migraines daily, I can't stand up straight because my back hurts so much, my step count went from >6,000 to <1,000 and I almost cried lifting Alex to change his diaper. I'm risking a false negative but I'm done.

I wish I had done the right things to find out if I have Celiac.  It would help me to know if my kids are at risk for it.  I'm not going to tell you to keep eating gluten, but I would talk to your doctor about what benefits there might be to getting a conclusive test.

 

Are they planning to do a biopsy?

 

I'm sorry for whining. I know some of you go through worse every day.

 

Just because other people go through worse does not make your pain insignificant.

 

Whine away if you want to.

So... I keep having piercing pain shooting above my right temple and the top of my scalp. I went to the chiropractor tonight to hopefully fix it. I’m home from chiro and the pain is still shooting.

My plan is to have the test tomorrow. If it's negative I will still go GF and eventually pay out of pocket to see if I even have the genetic markers for celiac because that could rule it out completely, anyway. If I have a (potentially false) negative but have the markers for it I will consider taking the test at a better time. Like when I'm dead.

I am sorry to hear that. The virus going around starts with headaches. It is a beast of a cold but it does end eventually so I'm not sure whether I should hope for that or for something that could be fixed more expensively?

 

Feel better soon. You too, Slache.

Thanks. This isn’t a virus. It is nerve pain. My neurologist said that we should pursue it further if it continues. If it doesn’t go away, that’s the plan.

Argh!

I need to get dd11 some "all purpose" (indoor/outdoor/seasonal) allergy medicine that won't make her sleepy. Would that be Claritin? And maybe have her start taking the ClearLung stuff.

Some people do best with Claritin. Some with Allegra. Some Zyrtec. We like Allegra.

I'm glad it's not a virus.

So it looks like tomorrow is an absolute deluge with hurricane force winds.

 

 

I still think dh is a wuss for not biking to work.

Around here wind is my only 100% no go. I can bike in snow and rain but if there are projectiles going through the air, I will. not. ride.

:( A woman on my team has nerve pain in her head and migraines (related, but unhappily, two separate phenomena). I hope it goes away.

Better. I think 4 hours in a building with no heat and it being like 35 outside really did me in. Normally I do my job really quickly and get out but I'm training this chick who lied about her abilities and it's taking her 4 hours to do 20 minutes worth of work. I still have so much to do! I can do the rest from home but this woman will never be trained!

Junie, I was wrong. Apparently you can not have the genetic markers for celiac but still have the disease, it's just less likely. So if I get negative results I will have to decide whether it's worth it to test later. I had mentioned it in case you wanted to go that route but it looks like it's a waste of money.

I have a horrible tension headache. The snappers have been extra snappy and that didn't help. They have been sent outside to exercise the chickens.

 

ETA: It's a Teenage Grumpy Turtles Booyah!

How do they exercise the chickens?

Funny, I was just wondering if heat would help.  I didn't know you LITERALLY needed heat yesterday!  Anyway, if heat does help your pain - do you have a heating pad?  Or throw your bathrobe in the dryer for 10 minutes and then put it on.  Hot shower.  Hot tea (the kind you drink).  Hair dryer.
