Sick From Talking On Phone?

I know I have a weak immune system but can someone get sick from talking to someone over the phone?  I start my New Year with the same crap I alway’s get.  I’ve been talking to my sister a for the last few days who has had this crap.  Although, the girl at the Lab has had it also and I have had  to go there twice within the last week.  I woke up this morning with a terrible cough and grabbing for my inhaler which I got when I had this last time.

I’ve learned an advantage to being Gluten-Free (although I really don’t recommend it unless you really need to).  In order to go to dinner, I look for places that have gluten-free options and yesterday, I really wanted Pizza.  I found a place called Bueno Guesta in Huntington Beach, CA. and we went there.  The pizza was okay and a medium actually gives me 4 meals since I eat two pieces at a time and the girl said any pasta dish can be made gluten-free.  My husband ordered pasta and the portion was large.  The point is that it is a bit fun trying new restaurants.

One of the disadvantages (I could make a list) is going to the store (Fresh and Easy is one) only to find they really don’t carry many gluten-free items at all.  I have a relative that gives me gift cards for there all the time for holidays and I am learning to buy most things for my husband there.  I was really disappointed in their gluten-free selection.  One of the manager’s did say; as more people request it; they may get more in; but…

Anyway, today I plan to relax, try to stay warm and get some paperwork done maybe.  Also, need to take more cough syrup which has Codeine so I may be taking a nap.

Restaurant Reviews

For my birthday we went to Red Brick Pizza for dinner.  May have been a mistake since  I should not be eating Olive Oil.  Olive Oil is bad for my system due to my metabolic disorder, but I digress.  Oh my gosh, the pizza was so good.  Yes, mine was gluten-free.  They have a large gluten-free menu.  They have the freshest of ingredients.  I don’t remember CPK (California Pizza Kitchen) being that fresh.  Then, my husband took me to Sensitive Sweets in Fountain Valley, CA to get dessert.  Everything at Sensitive Sweets is made gluten-free, dairy-free, allergy-free, etc..  It is my favorite place to go.  However, it is quite expensive..  We spent $20.00 on 2 cupcakes, 4 cookies, a donut, and a muffin.  Mind you, these are like really small in size but they are good.

I think I am helping two families on  Aidpage.com this year.  You know in a way this isn’t any riskier then when I sent boxes to help homeless people or victims of floods or hurricanes, etc. in the past.  It’s even safer because people are actually asking for the help and you are getting a name and address..not to mention a background story.  You just have to choose who to believe.  The one lady already received my box and thanked me.  I think I am going to mail all my packages off today or tomorrow and get them out of here.  I cannot believe Christmas is coming so quickly.

Not A Flash To Be Had

Went to my Primary yesterday and got put on Z-Pac.  Usually, that’s like a miracle drug for me so I really hope it works this time.  Getting really tired of feeling like crap.

Threw chicken, chicken gravy, cheese and Ruffles Potato Chips in the Crock-Pot for my husband for his dinner.  I hope it tastes like something and not crap.  We didn’t have any bread crumbs which is why I used the potato chips.

I bought myself a Purple 8″ non-stick frying pan and some red utensils plus my girlfriend is going to give me a large non-stick frying pan which I am going to use for my GF Foods to start cooking some of my stuff separate from some of my husbands stuff.  We don’t usually eat at the same time anyway but sometimes my stomach acts up and I swear I haven’t eaten anything with gluten in it.

My stupid Flash Player on the computer has stopped working and refuses to download no matter how much I try.  It will say it downloaded but then it still won’t work.  I don’t know who to call in to help.  The Geek Squad costs money.  Maybe they are worth checking into.  I totally  need the Flash Player as I cannot even play FB Games anymore or do much needed research on things.

 

Doc Update and Other Things

I need to find a non-stick saute pan with a lid.  I bought a saute pan with a lid that is not non-stick and the first thing it did was made my  food burn and stick to the pan.  Can we say Annoying!!!

My theory came true but not because I mentioned it.  I got a really bad headache last night and had to take my strong medicine.  I think it was because of my mental day on Wed.  A lot of times when my brain acts up; I pay for it later.    I am praying I am not getting sick today though because I woke up feeling like crap.  I shouldn’t be to surprised because while at the hospital, people were coughing, sneezing, etc. and I still have my wonderful immune system.

I saw my Gastro yesterday and he said the main way to confirm I have Celiac would be a biopsy but the biopsy would not come out correctly unless I stopped eating gluten for a while which I am not going to do.  Plus, if the biopsy came out positive the treatment would be to go on a total, gluten-free diet which I’m doing anyway so we may as well just things alone.  I just term myself Celiac and live this way.    It’s easier to say I am; then to say I have a wheat intolerance.  I don’t know about Rye or Barley anyway.  It’ s not something I’ve really tested on my system.

My Gastro also checked my Anal Skin Tags.  Luckily, it was quick and he didn’t have to use the invasive tool because he can SEE them.  He confirmed they are Skin Tags and gave me a new cream to try out, plus he said if this doesn’t work he will refer me to a surgeon.  Please pray it works..

Today is the B-Day of someone I am not in contact with.  She is 7.  I don’t know if I can wish her a Happy Birthday on Facebook or not.  If her father announces it,  I suppose I will wish her one in the comments section.  This will be the first year ever that I did not get her a birthday present.  She will alway’s be in my thoughts.

Gluten Free Info

So I found another site that sells Gluten/Wheat Free foods for like 50% off retail price.  Unfortunately, not a lot of actual meal type foods so I have to get creative;  but I am saving a lot of money anyway.

We did go to B.J’ Restaurant & Brewery and Claim Jumper lately and both have Gluten Free Menu’s.   I wish more take-outs did.

I purchased the book, “Gluten Free For Dummies” and it is very informative.  It talks about how you can have all the tests done (which I haven’t) and they can all say you are negative for Celiac but technically, you can still have Celiac Disease.  Sometimes, I wonder because I still have stomach issues even when having had no Wheat or Gluten.  However, I’m not sure it’s been two months yet since I’ve been on this Gluten Free diet so it may not be cleared from my system all the way.  I also read that Gluten can cause headaches, osteoporosis, and even early menopause..all of which I have experienced.  I have noticed lately the headaches have been getting much better. (knock on wood).

Every time I say that I seem to get a migraine within a day or so.) .
