If you have to call yourself a name, try "nork." As far as I can tell, it is a cross between nerd and dork and (at least with my HS friends) it means a smart person doing something stupid or without thinking.... Hang in there!
Hey - I'll move to AK anytime in the SUMMER! :) Where do you live? I used to live in Anchorage.

Thanks Martha and others! Don't worry, there arent any left because Ive eaten them all. And really I meant stupidhead in the nicest sort of way, I don't really think Im stupid, just forgetful sometimes (most of the time, LOL?) Oh well, I figure I should be mostly back on track and feeling good by Friday, but isn't it silly how easy it is to slip up? Maybe we should all gang up and move to one place and then all the food will HAVE to be safe or we won't buy it. There we go, that's my new plan to save the world, but I really like Alaska so I hope you are all starting to pack, because I'm staying put!
I hope you're feeling better. We ALL make mistakes, you know. Can you give the rest of those granola bars away? If it's not around, that helps me a LOT. And PLEASE don't call yourself Stupidhead. That's not accurate. You may be a Rushed Person or TooBusy, but not Stupid. Since you're here, you're smart!
ARGHHHHH! I have been having some very "off" days lately, but I figured it could be any number of reasons: I've been fighting a cold, I stayed up too late studying for a test, there's icky stuff going on at home, I scheduled too many appointments and meetings the last few weeks and I keep running out the door so I won't be late because Ive forgotten what day it is and which appointment goes where, the list continues. The results of the "offness" are that I feel extra stupid and sluggish and my bloodsugar is out of control, which is too bad because I had a very nicely controlled week or two in there... Ill bet y'all can already figure whats going wrong here, because if it wasn't something gluten related, I'd be posting on a different board! But it turns out when I went to the store last week and stocked up on the granola bars without wheat in them (I only avoid wheat, but I often eat GF because then Im positive its safe) I bought the wrong kind! I knew that there were two colors of a certain brand and I could eat one but not the other, and I grabbed the wrong ones and I've been eating them like crazy, which only makes things worse and I'm pretty sure its a self-feeding cycle! The more bad stuff I eat, the more I crave, and the more I crave the harder it is to resist, so the more I eat, and the more I eat the more I crave.... I guess its better to find out now than after 3 more boxes of the stupid granola bars. And I just reaffirmed to myself that I ALWAYS need to read the labels and not rely on my foggy memory. And in the mean time I will make extra sure to clean up my diet so that both my wheaty cravings and my bloodsugar get back under control and I can resume a (semi-)normal life again. Now excuse me but I guess I'm off to go eat some emergency cottage cheese and hope that it helps....
