Tew's Day!

Hello to new reader wavesandmoon!

Same, basically.

Lots of celiac research yesterday. The problem here is the inverse of some of my other medical things - there's too much information! Lots to absorb.

Elephant Walk is right out, as everything that isn't Deadly Poison is tainted by foul citrus. I am looking at this menu like "why would you willingly put that in your mouth?" I mean, I could have the flank steak, I guess? But I worry about citrus stench. Soy protein and shellfish = anaphylaxis. Citrus just makes me sick to my stomach. I know, I know, with even more dietary restrictions, I need to not be picky, but I'm not kidding when I say it's hard to keep from throwing up when I smell or taste citrus. Some foods I just have texture issues with, and will have to push through, but this one, not so much.

We're having dinner at Stone Hearth Pizza tonight.

Ways to Not Contact Me
We don't pick up our phone. Almost ever. Just when we're expecting a call from a doctor or someone. I just checked our voicemail? 27 messages, dating from as far back as October 16.

So... not the way to reach us.

Second worst way is via LJ message, as that requires several steps just to reply to the e-mail. Really, just e-mail me. If I only have to hit one button to reply, you're more likely to hear back from me. (Is there a way to disable LJ messaging?)

Texting's also good if you know I'm not home; I don't keep track of my cell phone when I'm home. It's a 3G, so I get e-mail away from home as well. E-mail = still the best way.

Out of Sorts
Quite out of sorts today. You can tell, because I am curt. Combination of figuring celiac stuff out and that mass of voicemails, and just being generally exhausted.

Daily Science
Advances in tissue bioengineering have enabled lab-grown bladders, tracheas, cardiac patches and now penis parts.

Yes, your Daily Science today = lab-grown rabbit penises. You're welcome. :)

Agh. Still trying to wake up. Today needs to be a writing day, as tomorrow Elayna has no school. Going to Mind's Eye later to fix my shawl with the infinitely-patient asciikitty, and then Diesel + dinner.

There is an option in the profile that allows you to select who can send you an LJ message - one of the options is 'nobody'...

I don't know if it will notify the sender that the message could not be delivered but I would hope the system is smart enough to do that...

If I ever did try and message you, it was probably through LJ message. At least until I get an internet connection at home again, I don't have option. No emails from work. I'll try and refrain from messaging at all, as per your preference. :)

This is going to sound dumb, but it would be very helpful me as I am looking through recipe books for you to have a list of your 'Nos' -- I know no soy, and now no gluten, but also no citrus, etc -- textures that are no good/tastes that are no good/ And they don't have to have a reason for being 'nos' I just need to know what they are so I am not offering not helpful stuff. (And it might be handy for other helpful types too) I've been collecting recipes for thirty years, I should have some things here that will give you perfect joy and make your tummy happy and also not cost tons of money nor hours in the kitchen (unless you want to)

Slimy textures. Eggs gack me - just by themselves, I can have them as ingredients. Yogurt is ugh. Tomatoes (again, by themselves; tomato sauces are fine).

Citrus is the big thing so far as flavor/smell. And strong-smelling/flavored fish like salmon. Tilapia and tuna are okay, but I tend to steer clear of most fish.

And shellfish are out, yes? Shrimp/scallops/lobster/clams?

I wonder if your texture filter is like my younger daughter's -- she's very anti-slimy, so I shall test things on her before reccing them to you!

Yep, all shellfish.

(And thank you so much!)

I have a friend in England who's been diagnosed with Coeliac's. He's also an experimental cook who's been adapting recipes (he's a wedding planner, professionally) to suit his needs. Would you like me to initiate contact & see if he can help with both the information overload & the relearning how to eat?

As someone who recently contacted you via lj-message..oops! Sorry!! [in partial explanation, I was having trouble logging into gmail.]
13th-Nov-2009 01:19 am (UTC)
I don't have your e-mail.

I have pointed my multiple food issue savvy friend at your "official tips" post and I have told her "celiac, no soy, no shellfish, and citrus avoidance strongly preferred".

I hope she brings you useful advice of adviceyness.

ooohhh... can they grow me a penis?

I'm not trans, but I admit, I do want a penis. Guys seem to have so much fun with them.
