Not really, I always knew I was special...  

But seriously, it was more of a "ah, that makes sense" moment.

I worked at a major university blood bank and also went to school there, so I had to learn how to do Lewis antigen typing along with all the other blood group phenotyping. My family has never been tested for secretor status.

I knew nothing of the effects of secretor status until I read the LR book.

With all my health issues I would have sworn I was a Nonnie.  Nope, I'm a Secretor.  I think by following this diet I will actually be able to enjoy my Secretorhood soon.

I just love this board and the people here. So nice and warm and friendly. Feels like home.  

Well, officially my home is still Aruba, I am only working in Holland... The commute is terrible  

But to make a long story short, beginning 2006 divorced, project I was working on in Aruba stopped end of 2006, had to find new job, met a great man who lived in Holland, decided to find out if he's the one and got a job in Holland. So that is why I went to Holland and the money here is much better then I would make on Aruba, with the extra cash I make we are renovating the house on Aruba so we can move there. When? I don't know but I hope soon because while Holland is a nice country to live, the weather just sucks. I need sun and warmth!

In the mean time I am trying to make the most of my time here. Am going to school (photo academy) to become a professional photographer and I am working on a new book. Maybe I can work as a photographer back home, that would be great.

And yes, we are still together and got married end of 2008.

I was totally shocked I was a nonnie as I am super-healthy and never get sick...well, recently anyway.  I just started the diet in January, but have been gluten free for several years...interestingly my "hardiness" seemed to coincide with the GF diet. (Suprise!)  But now that someone has mentioned it, I am super sensitive to tactile stimulation.  I can't wear lace of any kind, or anything even remotely scratchy...my skin actually turns bright red.  Tags drive me crazy (hail to whoever invented tagless underwear!  ) And I have my hair short now because I couldn't stand it on my neck.  I also get physically over stimulated by touch...like if my kids insist on sitting or leaning on my all the time...I can only take so much of it before I take a short hiatus in my room by myself (haha!)  Of course, when I hit that point I have to tell my normally touchy feely husband to "go away"..   He knows I can only take so much before I go off the deep end....   Gosh, I had no idea that was a nonnie thing!!!  How interesting!!!  I guess now I can tell my husband that is't my DNA's fault.....haha!

Fascinating reading this - I was as surprised as hell even though my partner was non but not me turns out we are both nons.

I also put this on another thread but will copy here

Does bleeding gums have an issue, does it make you a semi secretor?

Also I get sore throats if I use mouth wash, but stay pretty healthy if I don't? what's that all about

I have trouble with mouthwash, too, but that's because I have periodontal disease and my mouth is sensitive. The mouthwash has to be alcohol-free, otherwise it's too harsh to tolerate.

My gums bleed, and I've never had a cavity and otherwise very
orally healthy....don't know what that's about. I have a feeling that
I might be a slight secretor - strange that you would say that

I was surprised since I thought I wasn't that special maybe just too sensitive to everything unlike most other people.  Well Doh! That's nonniehood in a nutshell!

Quoted from Captain_Janeway


Yes, I know for sure that I have a super enhanced tactile sensation.


Me three!  It's good in some ways, like an extra awareness.  Sometimes it prevents you from getting hurt if you feel a mozzie on your skin for instance and get it before it gets you.   I wonder if it leads not only to increased pain, but increased pleasure sometimes?

I feel allergic to my own hair, can't stand if my fringe (Bangs) get near my eyes.  Always putting my long hair up as can't stand little bits blowing on my neck.

Just realised I don't think my Mum is a nonnie since she buys us clothes sometimes (gotta love her) but chooses polyester and nasty fabrics alot.  I can't even stand touching them with my hands let alone tender bits!  

Also hate static build up from polyester, which makes your hair stand on end and stick to you even more! Scratch scratch this morning for some reason.

I found out my secretor status just a moment ago and I wasn't surprised because I always have felt I'm an "odd ball" and am supersensitive compared with other people. But being a nonnie is something I dreaded because that means there are more favorite things I cannot eat now!

Nonnies, do you find that you gravitate to cotton clothes and things like that?

Welcome to nonniehood Balletomane!  When you do your SWAMI though you may get some of your favourite foods back.  I haven't been reading everything on here and sorry if you already have SWAMI?

If you're like me, it takes a few days to sink in and then it's ok!

IMHO we are fortunate to know how we a different to the norm and have the knowledge to stay healthy.  How many people are suffering out there not knowing that giving up wheat or corn (being nonnies) would improve their life so much?

Yes!  Sometimes fabric and comfort is more important than colour or style to me!  What a dag.

Forgot to say before that I only really started suspecting when I got acid reflux long after reading LR4YT and then reading the Genotype book saw how much Explorer suited me with all the health conditions (yeast infections, liver and kidney problems especially).  Then I realised I must be a nonnie and an explorer.  So glad to have found this now so much makes sense!

Thanks so much, Symbi! Nonniehood sounds warm and fuzzy   I have ordered SWAMI and waiting for it to arrive.

This is so true! We are lucky to be "in the know."  But it will certainly take me some time to grief the loss of my favorite food and staples, as well as to find substitutes.

Oh, that's definitely me! I love cotton. I have always wondered why I love the unsexiest underwear... and the unsexiest shoes! Comfort is more important to me than style.

hi everybody

i am very new to this secretor and non-secretor topic. I did the test  recently and as most of you here i am a "nonnie". I really had no idea that we differ so much from the secretors. When I was reading your posts everything seems so like "that is exactly how I feel". I am extremely sensitive to tags inside clothes, cannot stand it when people make strange noise when they eat or when they walk (I live in Asia now and people here tend to drag their feet when they walk....oh this drives me absolutely crazy - I feel like screaming "lift your feet pleeeeease"   ), and last but not least, when I want to sleep I cannot be touched  

so are those typical characteristics of the Nonnies? Where can I read in the forum more about that? i have the Eat Right for your Type book that was printed in 2001, they do not mention anything about the secretor status in that book.

I have, so far, never had any problems with my stomach, I can eat almost everything and I never had any problems. But I often feel tired and I would not mind loosing a few kg (I really only need to loose 2-3 kg....but still) that's the main reason why I would like to start to follow the blood type diet. I have no idea what kind of GT I am, I think that is way to complicated for me to figure out.

So that's it for now - will keep following this post!

Welcome to Nonniehood NCA!

Nice to know we aren't that strange after all!  

There is a nonnie clubhouse where we are all members.  It's a forum under lifestyle.  or here http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-nonnie/.  

Also lots of info on secretor status in the Live right for your type forum here http://www.dadamo.com/cgi-bin/Blah/Blah.pl?b-lr4yt/

Sorry to overwhelm, but there's also info under scientific writings.  Like Lola said the book LR4YT is a good place to start.

Yep. And more than once I've looked at my underwear and wondered if I'm going to end up a nun.
