Thanks to David's investigatory powers, we have discovered Lundberg Family Farms' Bean & Rice Chips, specifically the Pico de Gallo flavor. They are yummy, vegan, and gluten free. They are quite good. We will probably try their other flavors as well.

My test results show no change in gluten related anti-bodies. Some might think this good news. I don't. With a positive diagnosis I could go back on the GF diet, feel better, and know I was doing the right thing. I just feel better when I don't eat wheat. But we have yet to find a clinical reason why. Sorry [ profile] derien, but I can't go back on the gluten-free diet yet. At least another month.

Brain? No brain.

I'm not certain what it is but I'm fairly miserable. Not my mood. The mood is pretty good. But physically I'm completely toast. Burnt, charred, smoking toast. I wish I could be certain it was gluten. Sleep consists of lots of tossing and turning and waking up feeling like I haven't slept in three days. Quite a bit of the time I feel like I spent the previous night in a moshpit or under the toes of a troupe of tap dancing elephants. Had a blood test on Tues. Have a doctor's appointment next Monday. Oh, I hope the tests show something useful.

In the meantime brain function is declining at a precipitous rate. If this keeps up I'll be drinking Bud, listening to country music, and voting Republican within a month.

... for tomorrow we die of intestinal lymphoma.

I had a brief chat with the gastro doc today. For the next four to six weeks I will be off my Gluten-free diet. If it makes me sick enough, I'll have a diagnosis of some sort. If it doesn't, cheap food will be back in my diet. I am looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time.

Now the most pressing issue is what should I have to eat first? Oh, a world of choices are spread before me. I don't think there are enough meals in a single month to sample all the potentially poisonous possibilities. (I'm all about alliteration.)

Okay, I'm officially working a lot and working hard. Today it was only 8 3/4 hrs, the previous two I finished out at 10, which is the company requested limit. Tomorrow will probably be heavy again because of the weather, stormy weather means people don't want to go out to the malls so they use the web or phone to do their shopping.

I had my appointment with the gastroenterologist on Monday. He was stunned and amazed that I have followed the Gluten-Free diet for two years without being diagnosed. It will take a lot of visits to actually confirm the diagnosis, but the process begins anyway.

Don't think I said this before:

Got my test results back, they came back negative for the antibody for Celiac.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the rules, this doesn't mean I don't have celiac. What it does mean is that I've been following the gluten-free diet well enough that my small intestine is no longer being destroyed. Yay!
