Just had some random passing thoughts about nonniehood and thought I would throw something fun out there for us.  If you can think of more "You might be a nonnie if's" just add them on!  Have a great weekend all my special nonnie friends (and of course you wonderful secretors as well!)  

You Might Be A Nonnie If:

1.  Your standard mantra at all outings, festivities and gatherings involving food just to get people off your back has become "Oh, I'm allergic to that..."

2.  Foods that others consider wonderful, tasty treats look more like rat poison on a silver platter.

3.  You've been accused of being a little overly sensitive and cautious about food and life in general.  Can we say hypochondriac, anyone?

4. You can feel the presence of an avoid around you like a 6th sense.  (Where is that pesky breadcrumb hiding?  Why, I oughta...)  Before an avoid even enters your mouth, you are already looking for a bathroom saying, "I knew I shouldn't have eaten that."

5.  Sights, sounds, and smells affect you like no other.  (Can you please chew your applesauce a little more quietly, I'm trying to watch this show!)

6.  You are a little envious of others who can rake in the junk, never get sick a lick, and then look like they just walked off the runway, yet you are so thankful that eating healthy and living right will increase your lifespan and enhance your overall life in general.  You are thankful that its "in your blood" to be the way God made you!

There are plentiful in Typebase - my own creations have my name in the title, but some are from the Nonnie Recipe group or modified from online or books.  Check out recipes under chocolate, bananas, sweet potatoes, almonds...

Those folks who eat the junk & look great will not look great in middle age.
Then they will blame it on hormones, general aging, stress, etc,----but not diet.
We all have those things, but diet as well as other good habits sure slow them down.
We hopefully, don't gloat.  We thank God for the wonderful info we have recieved!

Thanks for the encouragement, Miss PT... sometimes I get so weary, feeling different and alone, but this friendly community always boosts me up.

Could you elaborate on this one? †It sounds like you just quoted my Father; I NEVER could chew quietly enough for him. †Are our senses heightened because weíre nonnies? †I like bland food because tastes come across so strong.

Yeah, I want to know more about this too.  My siblings always told me, growing up, that I was too sensitive to everything physically and emotionally, but I couldn't help it!  I couldn't help it that I was either too hot or too cold or that all shoes were too tight or that waistbands itched or my hair tickled my face or that the insides of my cheeks itched.  I'm still hyper-sensitive to sound (I either hear it too loudly or I don't hear it at all) and temperature (low thyroid talking) and the words people say to me (what did they mean, and what could they have meant?)....but I'm better now that I have the BTD.  And I get better the older I get.

I have two to add:

You might be a nonnie if......you people-watch just to try to diagnose their food allergies based on the color of the bags under their eyes and where they wear their fat.

You might be a nonnie if......you can accurately guess your friends' blood types based on their health complaints.

WOW! †Although not tested, I BELIEVE I am a nonnie; and reading this post pretty much convinces me. †

The sensitivity part really hits home, boy. †I find the new headlights in cars too bright and am blinded by them when I drive at night; †have to protect my eyes when approaching them - and that's kinda dangerous! †Also, cannot handle any wheat, be it kamut or spelt; nor most sugars, including honey, agave, maple syrup. †Ingesting any of the aforementioned sends me into such an emotional tailspin, it takes days to become balanced again. †(I swear, it's how my recent "relationship" fell apart . . . had some food that had sugar in it over Christmas and became weird and emotional . . . well, weirder than normal . . . † . . . )

Stormy, just wondering, have you ever been diagnosed with rosacea? †This is a pretty mysterious disease which they don't really know the cause of, but it apparently can have one or several combinations of different causes and it certainly can present with different symptoms and progress or not progress along in different ways in different people. †I've been diagnosed with it myself. †In case you are not familiar with it, the vastly oversimplified and overly-generalized description is that your face would most likely sometimes "flush" red in certain situations. †But another thing with rosacea can be that it can have ocular involvement, which they call "ocular rosacea". †I have not been diagnosed with that part, yet I do have a sensitivity to bright light, just as you describe. †The way you describe yours just made me want to ask if you do have rosacea. †If so, you may have "official" ocular involvement or you may just have more sensitivity to light than most people, as I do, which I suspect is all tied in with the rosacea, even though I don't officially have ocular involvement.

If you read this and think you might have rosacea, relax, as being on the BTD is one of the best things you can possibly do for it. †In fact, that is all I do for mine, other than now trying to stay out of the direct sun, which is a tall order in Florida. †I'm lucky because I seem to have a rather mild case that is not progressing much, if at all, in the past few years.

Ack!  The sensitivity!  I remember as a kid the trouble my mother had with me when it was time to buy new shoes.  NOTHING was comfortable.  Shoe shopping was such an ordeal.  And keep that scratchy wool ten feet away from my skin.  I almost jump out of bed every morning when the hot water heater in the closet clicks on.    Oh.....I could go on.

You know your a nonnie if...

The aroma of crispy, hot bacon makes your body swell.

No, I don't think I do . . . I've never experienced the redness associated with the disease. †However, I just read a bit about ocular rosaceas and they say it's something that can develop later in life (40s and 50s - moi!) and one of the treatments is to eliminate spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine †. . . †interesting . . . so, could have it but be asymptomatic (except for the light thing).

Yes, I am so super sensitive, but definitely better now on BTD, just around my monthly times I am still pretty bad!    My dad was always like this, on the edge all the time!  I find myself doing the same.  I also have to run a fan at night because of the constant whirring sound.  I can't stand the total quiet because I hear everything around me, even breathing.  It has gotten better though, but I still much prefer my fan.  (My hubby doesn't care for it too much!  He says, "Why do you want noise to sleep?"  He thinks I am nutsy!)

Slurping soup just grates on my last nerve as well, slurping anything, hot tea, whatever.  Just thinking of the dental drill noise makes me want to scream.  It's like I can feel the noises itself.  Yikes!  I think it is a nonnie thing because we are just so sensitive...period.  I am finding that magnesium, calcium and tyrosine does help though.  

P.S.  That catechol about knocks me out!  It makes me sleepy...
