Cleaning out the kitchen

Now that I cook every meal in the kitchen I figured I better clean it out a bunch. I threw out all the old disposable plastic tupperware which I am convinced is cancerous and replaced it glass in a similar fashion to throwing out all the teflon (e:paul,39134) a few months ago and replacing it with stainless steel.

These are the lids, the actual containers didn't fit in the pic.
image

Here are the new ones.
image

I even threw out all my candy supply.
image

Yes, even the candy canes.
image

I ate clams and pills for dinner. I am feeling so much better.
image

image

3 pills are asacol but the rest is all spirulina, fish oil, friednly bacteria dn a mashmellow root which really seems to help.
image


There is no snow anywhere - how crazy is that?
image

This dude at the Galleria needs help.
image

Damn, this tower is ugly. I know I have already talked about it ten times but the rust drips just take it to the next level.
image

We drove down Dodge street today as directed by my brother's GPS a few weeks ago and saw this building - what was it? It is on Dodge, in the east side right near the 33.

The pigeons really like McDonalds on elmwood near the Regal. I like to call it Mc Shooters.

image

Back in 1997 - on elmwood near great arrow, the only time I was hit by another car. It was my fault, the other driver was black - the firemen who worked there screamed at him and took me inside to rest. I tried to explain. Racism at its finest.

I started working at age 12

I stopped by my mother's house today to drop off some artichockes as they are too high fiber for my low residue diet. She had some old papers for my and I seriously have worked my whole life.

My father was particularly good (pronounced - god damnit paul get a job) at making me have a strong work ethic. Same with (e:hodown)'s mom and her. And I guess both of us have stable long term jobs, so maybe it pays off. However, the point of this is that I have worked pretty much non-stop since 1989 - almost 20 years ago - when I started my first paper route. Yes, there were a couple months here and there when I was between jobs but all in all, I worked every year I could and that is insane.

Searching Craigslist

I found this guys website flyer on craigslist and I seriously cannot believe that anyone would do a website for $100. Not as in $100/hour but just $100. For how much work? Is that like slave wages - I man honestly you could make more as a cashier on hourly payments when it comes down to it. Or maybe I am just overestimating quality into it. I guess maybe it is just a CMS but it sounds like s/he customizes to their needs.

Tastey food - I tried

i had a good day at work today. With everyone gone I got so much work done, lol.

I hated being at the hospital
image

image

This is the you have crohns face
image

For breakfast I ate these pill with an egg, a banana and some apple sauce
image

So I am trying to make my low residue, low fiber diet taste good

For lunch I had my favorite, Dr. Praeger's potato coated, gluten free fish sticks

image

For dinner I ate potatoes with squids and asparagus. Notice the lack of potato skin. For some reason asparagus is on the low residue diet list. It must be low fiber. Everything is boiled to death, don't worry.

Prednisone

So I picked up the final Crohn's medication today - a steroid called presdnisone . Theis brings me to an even 17 pills a day.

The side effects sound terrible. Not to mention it says right on the bottle to avoid contact with sick people as it suppresses your immune system. How the hell am I going to do that working at a hospital, in Buffalo during winter and living at a house where (e:matthew) nannies children. I seriously am going to need to be in a bubble. So basically, I can expect to get really sick on top of my really sickness. I want to just be put down. I feel like I should just go on vacation.

Low Fiber/low residue diet

ANyone know of a good nutritionist in town? I get, I know why I have to eat it as part of my low reside/low fiber Crohn's diet but it seems to hard to think about eating the crap on my copyright 1998 list of food I can consume. According to it.

Fats I can eat:
butter, margarine

Fats I can't eat:
all others

That freakin' cannot be right. Haven't there been so many studies showing that mono and polyunsaturated fats are good for you. And clearly no fat has fiber. When I looked it up online , which I am good at and have the ability to do, it says all oils are fine. But for many people getting this stupid piece of paper they might think they can only eat butter as a fat. It is such a disservice to people to have inaccurate information. The whole sheet has tons of contradictories and is missing commas all over so some of it makes no sense.

Thank god I can eat crispy bacon

Here is the whole list

Crohn's Disease, Great ;(

Well the doctor is pretty sure I have a long term chronic disease called Crohn's disease now that will probably make me go insane. That is not a side effect but knowing my ability to cope with stuff I think insanity might be in store.

Apparently, it is really bad that I didn't take the medicine before. I promise I will now. 9 Pills a day of asacol and I don't know how many yet of steriods. I never took steroid before - do they make you feel weird.

Here are the insides of my colon looking all sick and yucky.

image

I guess it helps to have a doctor who is a cousin. He told me it is genetic and when I said I didn't think anyone in my family had it, he said I was wrong.

It was so nice of (e:jenks) to shows up and check on me as I woke up. It meant a lot.

I'll huff and I'll puff and...

blow your house down wih my 50mph wind.

I woke up this morning at 6am for the other half of my yummy lemon-ginger phoso-soda and heard this crazy smashing noise. Turned out the be a doll house from our yard blowing into the air and into the church.

image

Then all the garbage can blew down. Then this super loud thud which was the attic escape pod hatch. A 100lb metal and wood creation, blowing off the roof and 30 forward and like 100 feet down into the front yard. It was so scary to recover it because I was afraid other things would hit me. I guess (e:terry) never tied it down after going out on the roof at the party. There is no way I can get it back up there without someones help.

image

Something is exciting about being in strong wind. But also really scary. I wonder what it sounds like in a smaller house.

The clear liquid diet day

More love for my new carrier
First another bonus to ATT. I just called a number I saw at our Human Resources for ATT discounts and when I called the representative, she applied a 24% discount to my account. That is a seriously significant discount.

Clear Liquid Diet Day
I didn't even start with my first clear liquid drink of the day but decided to weigh myself just to see how much weight I will lose through the whole laxative process before the scope tomorrow. Looks like I weighed in at 138 - and that is before. Just how little can I weight, like how much is (e:paul) without the food in him. I really don't know how laxative are going to help get any more out of me. Seeing as my body seems to take care of that by itself.

Here is an example day from

Breakfast Hot tea with lemon juice and 1 tsp sugar (no pulp); Apple juice (8 oz); Gelatin 1 cup
Lunch     Hot tea with lemon (no pulp) and sugar; Grape juice (8 oz); Fruit Ice (1 cup); Consomm√© (8 oz.)
Snack     Fruit juice (apple, cranberry or grape, 8 oz); Gelatin (1 cup)
Dinner     Hot tea with lemon and sugar; Apple juice (8 oz); Consomm√© (8 oz); Fruit Ice (1 cup)

I think I am just going to need to be sedated. Does vodka count in clear liquid diet? I seriously get crazy just missing one meal as I don't have much reserves.

Mind you just before thanksgiving I weighed about 150. So I figure at this rate I should be down to 100 lbs by summer. I think that is my target "die at" weight. That was supposed to be a pun on diet but it just sounds sad. Kind of like (e:vincent) said - if you get down to 150 and then you get sick it's too on the edge. Welcome to my life.

I am so freakin' scared. Things like this scare me to death. For some reason I am not really able to handle this so well. How are other people so good at coping with body based problems? They just make me feel so temporary. I think had it been anything else I could have lived with it. Save for maybe some injury to my penis. But messing with eating and sleeping ruins everythign for me. In my sad, non social existence, going out to eat was probably the only fun thing I did - and now that is ruined. There is nothig else to do in the winter fr me. I guess i oucld program more, or pick up some other stupid hobby but I really miss the social interaction that is eating.

At least I have a job that I can do without much physical effort. Imagine if I had a physically stressful, non-union job right now. I would probably end up being fired and losing my health insurance if I had any to begin with. I guess I am lucky in a way and should stop complaining. But it doesn't make it any less scary. I suppose it would all be much better if I had a doctor I communicated with I think the scariness is not really knowing anything or what to expect.

I cannot wait until my gastro appointment on the 24th. I will call tehm today and ask if there are any other earlier appointments.
