Day is Done

This photo was taken seconds before the entire flock of cockatiels decided to put themselves back in the cage. I guess they were done!

Candy Crush Saga: Easter Bunny Hills

Episode 6 of Candy Crush Saga is called Easter Bunny Hills.  It appears to be the Easter Episode of the game.  This episode, like the previous one, starts with a crying resident of Candy Crush Land.

I started playing the Easter Episode of Candy Crush Saga in February.  It was too early for Easter inspired portions of video games.  Then again, the Easter candy was already in the stores, so maybe the game matched up with reality after all.

So Much for That

Recently, I was diagnosed with “probable Rheumatoid Arthritis” and given a prescription for medication that was supposed to help with inflammation.

After having some really nasty side effects, I started doing some investigation.  Sulfasalazine contains an ingredient called “pregelatinized starch”. The starch can come from corn, wheat, potato, or tapioca – and there is absolutely no way to check to see which one is is from.

Based on my symptoms, I am absolutely certain it came from wheat.  I’m highly allergic to wheat (and rye, and barley) and my body cannot process gluten.

So, my medication that was supposed to help me become healthier made me sick as hell – and I have stopped taking it.

And now, I’m wondering why my rheumatologist didn’t seem to want to know anything at all about my food allergies.  This could have been prevented!

Climbing

Morris and Poke decided to sit on the couch with me.

Marvin would rather climb the cage.
