Hej/hello, medavida   . Are you or have you been a blood donor. Then you can go to your blood central and ask them to print out all your data they have from you as a donor for free. Then if you're lucky they may have done a Lewis phenotype test on you. They usually don't do that on every blood donor but sometimes they do, in my family they did that on my father because some recipeint of his blood needed a Lewis phenotype to be done they explained to us. You can however find out if you are A1 or A2 for instance and if you are Rh-positive or negative. Otherwise if they haven't typed you for Lewis you can do a so called private "blodgruppsbestšmning" including Lewis. You have to pay for that though. I payed 590 SEK for mine.

Hi Vista,
I read a book about Fibro by Chantal Cabrera that was very helpful because she is a Dr + she also had fibro.  I say HAD because she now feels she is cured.  She lives in Canada & did it by life style change, diet, herbs & supplements. She also happens to live in Canada.

Hello all,
Very new to the forums (first post) have been doing the BTD for about 3 months, and feel fantastic. I didn't have any major issues to start with, except for bloating, but that left me within days of starting, and have lost about 5kgs.

Oh my! I have not had my secretor test done, but if thread is anything to go by, I am DEFINITELY a nonnie! I never realized how many of these weird quirks I had.

I cannot sleep if there is any noise (tap dripping, snoring, persistent coughing) yet I cannot sleep if there is deafening silence either! I keep my tv set to timer when I go to sleep on a low droning volume for about 30min, which is usually enough time for me to drift off. But God forbid if something wakes me up after I am asleep. My husband drifts off anywhere, anytime, anyhow, mostly on the couch, whenever he stirs he gets up and comes to bed, 99% of the time waking me up in the process! Ahhhh!    One son sleeps like his father, the other like me (poor soul)

My family are all able to have conversations over eachother while the TV blares next to us, I have to turn it off to understand anything thats going on. I cannot read a book in the living room, too much noise, have to read in peace and quiet.
With all this noise sensitivity, I don't know how I have survived working in a noisy hair salon for 20 years! (I had to laugh about the hair tickling peoples faces, try getting cut hair all over your body eeeekkkk   )

My teeth are fine though? Not one filling  

I sooo distinctly remember as a child, complaining of my clothes itching (wool, lace, tags) and I still have to cut my tags off.

Have always been colder than the others around me (hands and feet especially) but that seems to have gotten better (mind you I still have winter to go )

Headlights - yes, I wear the sunglasses till dark too.  

One question, Does anyone else have restless leg syndrome? It drives me CRAZZZZY!!!

Quoted from angelighte
..., for some reason the word "nonnie" really annoyed me + it still does.
I think cos I didn't know what it meant but Im investigating more for myself now I will get used to the word more and hopefully become friends with it.

I often felt isolated and different as a child.



haha.... me too (on both)

I think the word is just (oh I can't think of a proper neutral word for it): lame, silly (all the other fitting words sound too harsh)

You don't have to be freinds with it; you can just use something else: NON, NBTS, N-Sec, etc.  : )

I felt the same way about the word nonnie when I first joined the forums.  I don't use the word in my daily speech--I say non-secretor.  But it takes less time to type nonnie, so I use it here.

I have been noticing how many of my patients have blue eyes ( I am a nurse).
They sometimes not always have multiple health issues, I often don't have room on my  history paper for all the allergies and surgeries, they have had.
An association exists between blue eyes and non-secretor, so many are but not all ( like one of those associations on the SAT)

I think 'Nonnie" in my head  as I take the history and of course smile to myself.
Even though I am not one of you:
I am watching out for you guys.

Maybe I could be an honorary memeber

G'day!  I'm a suspected nonnie and really love finding out I'm not the only hypersensitive one!

The term Nonnie doesn't bother me because it sounds more friendly than the medical non-secretor.  The word secrete doesn't have such a good connotation.  Most body secretions are gross.  So I would be proud to be a nonnie.  Sounds like you're not like everyone else which is true.

You suspect you're a nonnie when (tried to highlight some advantages):

Your hearing is so good that you can hear people talking about you in the next room or next building even.  People should go far away or just say nice things!!  
BONUS - You can hear mosquitos and judge where they are.  Not so good if they keep you awake at night though.

You tuck your feet out of the bed in summer because you don't like the to have your feet constricted.  Shoe shopping is a major chore and not the pleasure that apparently most women enjoy!  
BONUS - you can feel when the mosquito starts to bite you and send it to kingdom come.

Everything is so bright sometimes that you never leave the house without sunglasses (just in case you can't get home until daylight even!)  BONUS - The optometrist notices no damaged retina, you also have less wrinkles from squinting.  You can spot mosquitos and zap them quickly.  

You hate the feeling of anything getting under your fingernails.  Have trouble gardening because of it.  Maybe it's a defence mechanism because you can't repel germs as much?  Can't handle dirty hands.  BONUS: you're hands are clean to apply salve to mozzie bites.

Hypersensitive in every sense, you can cook without looking at the food and tell when dinner is ready by the smell.  Very fussy about food, sometimes difficult to dine out.
BONUS - you are a good cook but you end up doing all the baking for everyone!

My baby girl got bitten by mozzies yesterday and I'm not happy with them right now as you can see.
-----------------

Somewhere I read on here that someone as a kid used to make points on the satin lining of a blanket and rub it on the top of their fingertips because it feels nice.  I thought I invented that!!!

Ha ha! Thanks Tomatilla !  

Baking is too tempting, sugar sugar!    I love doing it.  Will investigate using fruit juice instead of sugar and non-wheat flours and making bread.  Will be interesting.

Maybe people won't want to eat them till I iron the recipees out.  More for me!

Ghee W., I got a kick out of reading your post.  My ankles got chewed up last night while I was eating dinner.  Grrrr, mosquitoes.  At least I heard the one in the bedroom last night and ended its miserable little life before it had a chance to suck anybody's blood.

Can you get frozen juice concentrate in Aus?  I use pineapple or apple juice concentrate sometimes in my baking instead of honey or agave, which is expensive.  One or two Tbsp. of concentrate and you've got the job done.

Thanks Ribbit.  Congratulations on your beautiful baby, what a face!

Mozzies are the bane of my existance!  We have no flyscreens.  Our neighbour collects water in a wheelbarrow (water shortage) so they breed in there.  To open a window or not to open a window, that is the question!

Thanks for the great idea!   Good economical option too.  I know you can get orange juice concentrate here not sure of apple.  Will find out.  I've got a one-page list of explorer foods to take to the supermarket with me now.  Guess I'll be in there for a while! It's all fun.

Do you know the blood type of your new bub yet?  
Sorry so offtopic.

You might be a nonnie if:

The phrase: "Treat other people how you want to be treated" does not apply.

Any physical activity causes you to sweat.  I was given the nickname of "Sweat Monster"
back in the day when I played basketball when it was shirts vs skins. No one wanted to post up on me or face getting slimed.

You have to smell food or beverages before you eat or drink it.

The glass is neither half full or half empty.  The glass is just too big or too small.

You check the temprature of soups / pies etc.. with your pinkie finger.


I didn't think any of what I do was odd, but my wife and others....  



Be who you are.  Those who mind don't matter, those who matter won't mind.
