Did Lakswimr ever make it over here?  ???  I was just thinking of her, and I don't think I've seen her post since the move.

She hasn't signed in here with that name.   :(

I keep hoping to see that she's been here, but I haven't seen her YET.

Hmmmm... I know her town, but not her last name, address or phone number.  I suppose I could go through her town knocking on every door until I find her.  Might take a loooong time, though.

battles? No I think what we had recently in OT was no-drama good 'ole discussion of topics that have many different viewpoints and opinions. I didn't have the "sense of battle" in the higher-ed threads/topics, just a lively respectful discussion.

I spoke with Arkadia the other night.  I was concerned that it had been awhile and wanted to make sure she was okay, prior to realizing she was banned.

She is doing well, the kids are keeping her busy and she laughs that she actually has time to work now :)

I saw Peg pop in the other day for a few minutes, so I know that she's still 'around' occasionally... you might try sending her a PM.

I've not seen MommaB in a while, and I know that they were wrestling with a few things at the time.

Hey!! I'm checking in.   :bye: :bye:

Just been a bit depressed about all this allergy stuff and needed a break.  DS has dropped out of the SLIT study.  Funny thing, his mouth ulcers have mysteriously disappeared once he stopped those dreaded drops  ~)   They did not *think* his mouth ulcers where related to the drops, no other reported cases.  However, it is evident to us that is why he had so many, so big, so much of the time.

I'm still working out of town, and no computer (except work computer) so I RARELY can post, but I do read on my iPhone.

I feel like Eeyore,  thanks for noticing me (gone)! LOL
Title: Re: Where are you? Hope all is OK.
Post by: CMdeux on July 09, 2012, 09:04:06 PM
 :bye:  It's great to see you again!
 I completely understand your need to hunker down a while.  We  :heart: that you (and your DS) were willing to be in the study, MommaB.  :grouphug:  I think that there are a wider range of responses to desensitization than have been fully explored yet, unfortunately-- from what our allergist has told us, actually, your DS' story (mystery symptoms... probably not related, but really, who knows...) is not uncommon across all immunotherapy trials.  That's not scientific, of course, because mostly the N's are too small, but there are these worrying little hiccups in individual participants.  It's concerning.

It's amazing how stressful daily dosing is anyway-- even when it is going well, it's like always having that shoe in the background waiting to drop.   :-/

I wonder how Janelle's summer is going?  Maybe her DH will pop in and let us know.

I've also been thinking about Alt to Main/Cindy.  Anyone in touch with her off-board?

Hi guys!  :bye:

Summer is going well and kids are having a good time.  Three more weeks until I head home.

Currently hiding out in the health center where there is ac-the humidity has been brutal the past few days.

Asthma has been up and down. Good reminder for me that going back to work full time isn't really an option - I have to rest a lot.

Hope everyone is having a good summer. You'll be seeing me around again in a few weeks.

Going Nuts, thanks for thinking of me.  Let's just say that since last October my life has been so extremely stressful...and that stress increased every single month.  Not that I didn't have stress before but...  The depression has been unbelievable. It has been difficult to handle.  I'm currently in the process of getting my son's 504 rewritten for high school and there is no cooperation, IYKWIM.  However, I did receive good news, not related, today which has lifted me tremendously.  For the first time in weeks, I have COOKED wonderful food for my family!  With all that said, I do count my blessings for I deal with far less than some do.  I will try to respond to posts for I do need to get back into cooking--it really does keep me sane!

I was in touch with Peg off-board about 6 months ago.  All was well.  She is working a lot!

Lisa from Australia posted in OT within the last couple of weeks, maybe in the Prayers thread.

I think of Syd's Mom, Jacob's Mom and Katiee often.  I've also thought of Claire - her kids must be so grown now!  I think of California Mom every time I pass her in-law's house, LOL.

I really miss Syd'smom!  We had been in regular contact and then she sort of disappeared.  I hope she pops on here and there and gets in touch.  She had been in touch maybe a couple of years ago, now.  But then slipped away again. 

I have seen Peg post something on FB yesterday.  Lisa also posts on FB.

I sent an email to Janelle and she responded.  All is fine, just crazy busy with baby and life after returning from camp.  She hopes to post within a day or two and thanked all of us for thinking of her.  She was flattered.  :)

She's doing well. She just doesn't get the chance to Coke to the boards very often. We text fairly frequently--and did so two nights ago.

I got to see her DD in a performance a couple of months ago. I imagine I'll have the opportunity to see all three of her kids next weekend if they have the same Speech schedule as last year. DS will be competing against two (maybe all three) of her kids.

Pretty freaking cool.

I'm still here, but don't check in much as dd is all grown up (23 on Sun). She starts her nursing career in Feb, is engaged to be married. Lives with us  during week, with fiance on weekend.  Currently working for an optical dispenser (SpecSavers). Had a big holiday to Zimbabwe just over a year ago, with no problems re allergies (she took her own food on plane). Got to meet her fiances extended family :clap:

MIL and SIL's hubby both passed away in the last month so it has been rather difficult over the last few months :-[

yes.. so many people from many years ago who have dropped out of site. such a long list :( :( :(

I don't drop by as much anymore either as too busy with my job and the two kids, but still make a point of occasionally visiting so I won't be vanishing without a trace! :)

I mean, I can't go away, as I have duties to fulfill here..  like, who is going to post photos of the PA.COM allergy free ice cream facility once every few years...... if not me??!!  LOL  The most recent update that I have on this facility is that they are still working on the planning and doing a feasibility study so if you want to move things along, maybe Becca can look into it to see if any progress has been made ;)

Hi Purple Cat!

oh, I think the computers at the PA COM control centre are UNIVAC models purchased by C.P. at a garage sale in upstate New Year so it may take a while for them to process your resume since these are old models with only have 4K of memory.. very slow processing speed! :P

Macabre:  I wrote a light hearted and fun post that new members who were not here 10 years ago would have no idea why I am posting pictures of an abandoned ice cream facility.  So how is that inaccurate?  Inaccurate = "not true", "incorrect"...  How would a new member who joined during the past 10 years know what I am talking about? I have no idea why you say what I wrote is inaccurate.  Perhaps you don't appreciate light hearted and fun in the main discussion board or think that I am confusing new members here so I will stick to off topic next time.

Sorry--wrong word. Yeah, I don't know what word would work.

I love the ice cream factory stuff--cracks me up. I guess I just worry about what it looks like to miss people from this group out loud when they haven't been here (I don't know Geoff. I came occasionally from 2000-2004 and got more active in 2005).

I don't know--it makes me sad, like people don't want to be our friends, lol.

I guess I have had really bad personally experiences of people at churches I've been a part of who long for folks who left five years prior. In those particular situations, those people focus on who is gone rather than who is there, including all the new people. In those cases, there is unspoken finger pointing at the minister, even though it's a natural cycle in church life. People come. People go. Focusing on those who have gone doesn't help the community move forward.


So--that's a LOT to lay on a lighthearted post here, I know. ;)

Just explaining my post a bit and the stuff I brought to it.

OH so sorry,  I have been popping by now and then to see whats up but just haven't had much time to start posting. It is Monday of the second week of school but I know it is more like three weeks since I have been around much. We are all safe and ok. Mother's property has had some damage and yes we had to cancel the first day of school we had street flooding and some homes in the community were damaged nothing like what they are seeing in Louisiana though. Part of the ceiling in my classroom fell in   again.  Again they just stuck another ceiling tile up and the leak is still there. It is raining again and I am watching the water stain grow. My conference time is end of the day this year and it is taking some adjustment. I tend to be a high energy teacher and boy am I warn out after six back to back classes. My mom is going back and forth to Houston her mother has been day to day for over a year. My Aunt had some kind of accident and ended up with a detached retina. DD started high school this year and CRAZY schedule  ;).  Have to run have a meeting in five will make some time to drop in tonight.

Hi guys. Don't know what prompted me to drop into tonight after so long...maybe the extra glass of wine at dinner. :) Glad to see this community still exists and seems to be thriving.

I see Ginger on Facebook. Her daughter and my son are about the same age...getting through their college years.

My son is doing really, really well. He has had no relapses or issues since the clinical trial. He still carries an Epi for the peanut allergy (or at least as often as I can shame him into it), but he eats everything else on that former list of allergens without trouble. Was it the medication? Did he just outgrow and I (and his doctors) were overly cautious in terms of challenging him? We'll never know, and we definitely disagree. While I believe the trial had a huge effect, I think he believes that most of his restrictions and allergies were more minor than I made them out to be. Stories about his reactions from others don't seem to make a difference. He really believes I got my personal identity from starting this board and the FAB blog, and that I was invested in him being allergic. Those are hard things to hear, and harder to admit there may have been some truth in them. Of course I don't believe his allergies were imaginary, but I honestly don't know whether I was more afraid than I should have been. How can you possibly gauge that? But I did have to take time away from all FA things to lick my wounds after those difficult conversations. So hard to know if the good you do in the world ever outweighs the bad.

Boo, my son, is a senior in college now, studying history and all things Middle East. He'll be going to Jordan over Winter Break (something I could not have even imagined 5 years ago) for an intensive Arabic program. My daughter (Brina) is a senior in high school now and taking the world by storm. She's a talented linguist and is hoping to study international business in a big city somewhere far away from home. Hard to let go of your children, but mine are eager to get out there and I'm happy they have the confidence to do it. So much easier without the specter of MFAs hanging over his head.

We have not heard much about the clinical trial, other than they never published because results were inconsistent. The 30-pills-a-day was very difficult and one of the program people said they had a lot of difficulty with compliance. I heard they were reformulating the drug to a more concentrated form, but nothing after that. It seems there are a lot of promising therapies on the horizon, so who knows which will will the race? I just hope that they find something soon that works for more kids.

Can't think of much else to report. Trying to figure out what life with an empty nest involves. Hope all of you are doing well and that your kiddos are growing up safe and happy. Such a long way FA advocacy has come since we started in the 90s! Was very happy to put that teal pumpkin on my door this Halloween. :)
Title: Re: Where are you? Hope all is OK.
Post by: GoingNuts on November 04, 2016, 09:58:05 PM
Hi Boo - so glad you stopped in!

Great to hear your kiddos are doing well. We've really watched each our kids grow up here, and it feels more like family than our actual families at times.

My FA DS is now 22 and in his first year of Law School.  I secretly thought he might have outgrown because he hadn't had a reaction in so long, until he had a reaction this summer.  So I guess not.

I hope you'll stick around awhile!

So happy to hear from you!  Often wondered how things were going.  Glad your children are thriving and that you are doing well. 

Nothing about food allergies is ever black or white, we are always guessing, assuming, and an overabundance of caution is necessary, bodies behave differently depending on circumstances, hormones, you name it.

I hope you never doubt how much your efforts, your shared experiences, knowledge and education have been appreciated. 

Your son is an adult and ready to take on the world and whether he agrees with how you chose to do so or not, you got him to this great place he is at and helped mold him into the adult he has become!

Boo!  I am so glad to you stopped in and so incredibly happy to hear how well both of your kids are doing.
Your posts here and your blog really helped me to take the plunge and move to Mt. Sinai and to trust the allergists and do food challenges.  We have had successes and failures.  Both kids can eat baked milk and DS (12) can eat pizza which has been life changing.  DS also kicked beef years ago.  Both failed baked egg and thats ok.  Thank you for updating us and thank you for your advocacy bc it really helped changed our lives.

Has gvmom been around?  I hope shes OK.

I'm around.  DS1 had a medical emergency a couple weeks back and it has kind of upended everything.  Not FA related, though we are still lucky he is alive. 

But, as happens most times in life, we've had other things sprinkled on top of that which have kept me pretty overwhelmed and just trying to keep my nostrils above water. 

So.... ya know.... I'm just  :-/ these days.

 :grouphug: gvmom.  I'm glad you stopped by, but so sorry to hear about your son!  Hope he is doing well and you get your head above water soon!

Is anyone in touch with Foxy?  For some reason she has been on my mind.

I was thinking about CMDeux.  Hoping things are as okay as they can be.

I see her posting regularly on FaceBook.  Hopefully she'll check in around here at some point.

I don't think I've seen Tabi around lately - hope she and her family are well.
