New Doctor and Allergies

Dr. Bartolone believes it is crohns too. Says it doesn't matter either way as the meds are the same. I guess I really am on asacol for the rest of my freakin life. I am going to do a time lapse of my 270 pills in a bottle going away to 0.

At least it doesn't have any real side effects for me. He said if I am not experiencing them now, I won't probably later.

So seriously, no one knows what causes this and I am at least lucky that mine is manageable. I think I will just east healthy from now on and hope for the best.

I hope medical science figures out some more details, someday.

And I got a copy of my allergy tests. I am way less allergic to dogs than cats. It wasn't just in my head. I am as allergic to maple and birch trees as I am to dogs. Cats I am way allergic to but even more than that I am alergic to mold that grows on plants and ragweed. In fact I am almost 5 times s allergic to ragweed as I am to trees.

They are sending me for a celliac disease test too s the other allergy test only confirmed an allergy to wheat and not that I am gluten intolerant.

Dr Bartolones office is so the future of doctors offices. It was beyond clean and formal. Everything was digitized and all the nurses carried portable tablet PCs. Even the screen had privacy screens. Morever, all the signatures were digital.

GPS 7

This is my seventh GPS device and I think my favorite yet. There is something ironic about taking a picture of this new device and talking about it from my windows mobile device.

Oh god, how I am going to choose what mobile devices to carry with me. I think the tilt but really be the best one ever. The keyboard on it is just so damn good. If only it ran something besides windows mobile.

On The phone waiting

I spent so much of the morning on the phone waiting on hold to try and get all my medical records and test results to one place for a doctors appointment this afternoon.

Luckily, you can program and wait so it wasn't so bad. I am going to try and get my own copy of it all, now that it is in one place. This should be exciting to see one gastro enterologist who specialized in these types of problems, with all my test results (CT, colonscopy, and blood test) all in one place.

The doctor is Dr. Bartolone over at Buffalo Gastroentrology Associated at 60 Maple Rd.

Tears of flour filled sadness

I knew it. I am freakin' blood test certified allergic to wheat and corn. I am totally not surprised as I am such an allergic person and I am sure that Hay and grass are one of my main enemies. This morning my stomach was all gurgely, squishy which is not a good thing and I did eat wheat yesterday for the first time in weeks.

image

I have a doctors appointment to discuss this on Friday Feb 1. I wonder if anything else is wrong with me - I took so many tests last week.

Finally, I have an appointment with a gastro on Thursday. I wasn't going to go but now I might go to discuss this with them. What if everything is my allergies. I am really only a step away form bubble boy. What the fuck happend to me that made me so allergic to everything. It seems liek my immune system is so over the top xenophobic.

Gluten causes damage to the intestinal lining by eroding the villi and microvilli essential for digestion and absorption processes. This damage then increases the likelihood of partially digested gluten proteins passing into the bloodstream. Certain proteins cause our immune systems to react. Undigested partial proteins found in gluten cereals have morphine-like properties once they enter the bloodstream, suggesting an origin for the phrase 'comfort foods' and its addictive nature. Once an immune response has been initiated, inflammatory reactions can cause a whole host of wheat allergy symptoms. A gluten/wheat allergy may not always be a severe frequent reaction but can result in many digestive symptoms � flatulence, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, pain etc. � and may aggravate a host of other symptoms.

Not the phone

For a minute I was having some anger about my Nokia n810 not phone not working right with my windows mobile ATT tilt phone. Bluetooth DUN costs $70/month and I only pay like $40 but then I discovered this article
talking about Windows Mobile Wifi Router which really works perfect. I can't believe how awesome it is and for free. Now my phone can act as a wifi router for any device and it gets some serious speed. I am able to surf mobiley at about 1000 kbps download /70 kbps upload.

Go windows mobile. However, much I complain about the windows mobile OS - I am seeing the most innovations in both hardware and software coming out on that platform. I mean just look at what is available on windows mobile for free, this doesn't even get close to how much you could also buy. I can't wait to see the same phone running Google's android - whenever that happens.

Recently, one of the most innovative interfaces I saw on a mobile was this one that let you take pictures of a UPC online and then would instantly install the application over your air on your phone.

Now I freaking love the not phone again.

Here it is skyping The sound quality is great.

Here they are being friends.

Whole Foods, Laptops, and Birthdays

Today was so far the most uneventful birthday ever. Which was fine with me. We might go out to dinner later. The exciting part was that I ate a chicken hogie sub for lunch on wheat with cheese and I am not really sick right now. I figured I would just try it for my birthday.

Toys
My new Nokia n810 not phone is on its way tonight. I cannot wait to play with it.

Laptops
One of my coworkers got a new Dell XPS laptop that almost puts my mac to shame in terms of beauty and brawn. To bad it runs the wrong OS. I think Mac OS would looks great on it. It has a 64GB solid state drive. Must be nice but I am not sure that is enough space for me yet and also sports a finger print scanner.

Bye, bye plastic bags
Whole Food grocery store got rid of their plastic bags. No more plastic bags at checkout. What will the coop do in response?

The New Estrip Server Is Deployed

i switched server's today. I am sure there are somethings that need ironing out but generally I think it is all good. Hopefully, I will not need to stress out for my birthday tonight/tomorrow. It is an exciting first step in estrip v6 coming to life.

Here is the server at home before we left
