BTD Forums  /  Nonnie Clubhouse  /  Looking for Type A Non-Secretors
Posted by: 150 (Guest), Tuesday, November 13, 2007, 4:33pm
So I just looked up my results from the lab and I am

dah dah DAAAHH!

A nonnie.

I came back to the site to see that there's a whole new test to get, other secretionaryisms, or something, so that will be fun. A1? A2? MN? Rh? Oh yeah.

In the meantime, where are all my A nonnies at!? :D

I am going back to reread LR4YT for the nonnie stuff, but I also wanted to add that I have found amazing cheddar soy cheese, and made a veggie shepherd's pie with 100% type A friendly  food, and it was so good. I'll post the recipe soon. First I wanna see if there's any chance in h-e-double-hockey-sticks that an A nonnie can eat Dairy Queen's cheesecake blizzard..........................guessing not. lol.

Welcome kateland - another A nonnie like my hubbie.

Interesting about the noise and crowds - we're both the same. I kind of cringe up inside and get smaller when I should be getting bigger (I'm talking auras), and he just gets plain cranky.

I also hate being startled by loud noises. That turns me from mellow to cranky in one quarter of a second flat. He isn't fussed like me. I suppose that's the difference between O and A adrenal reaction?

Anyway, he's given up tennis and squash and taken up playing the guitar ::)  ;D and he's so much more cheerful.

Ahh the guitar is a favorite of mine, too. I also just discovered Yoga - this one instructor Seane Corn (got it from Gaiam) is awesome. She's actually living with OCD and I kept thinking, "you are SO blood type A" during her interview, lol. She has a great mix of spirituality and focused Vinyasa (uniting breathing and movement). I have never felt better in my life after doing an hour of that. And Lola - you're right ;) I've been doing the yoga breathing when I am stressed, and it is wonderful to feel me relax.

Hi, found out I was a Non-Secretor in Feb. and even though I've been "eating right" for 4 years now, it was still dramatic.  I've been trying to get a support group going on yahoo and also checked with my doctor.  So, Hello!  I hope you are out there.  It is nothing short of a miracle that I am alive (and 48 years young!) so, if I can't round any of ya up Here, I may have to assume you have passed  :(  Give me a Holler   :)

A-nonnie here- alive and well in sunny Wisconsin. :) A yahoo group sounds great, let us know when you get it up and running. Now, what makes you think we all "kicked the bucket"?  :o :D And what were the dramatic improvements that you have experienced?

Greetings Jan:

I am 48. Whether I am alive or not is subject to debate. I do post occasionally in spite of my questionable state of nonexistence.

Dead or alive, I do not secrete.

If only secreting was the only definition of "living", I wouldn't be paying taxes.

Welcome Jan.  Not an A, but an O...non-secretor.  As Isa says...'half of you.' ;)

This forum is a wonderful BTD/GTD family support group.  You will find none better. (woot)(woot)

After two years of calling myself an "O-nonnie", I found out recently that I'm actually an "A-nonnie".  

Technically speaking, it's correct to say that I'm a non-secretor of O, because I don't secrete O.  What's more, I don't even secrete A.  So, although I'm not an "O" who simply doesn't secrete, I'm an "A" who doesn't secrete "O"... or "A" for that matter.

It is correct to say that I don't secrete "O" because I don't even produce it, so, of course, if I don't even produce it in the first place, I certainly can't secrete what I don't even produce.  

However, I also don't secrete "A".  But that's not because I don't produce it in the first place... apparently, I do.  I produce it, but I just don't secrete it, so it can't be detected in my secretions, just as "O" also can't be detected in my secretions, either, but for completely different reasons.

The phrase "A non-secretor" is, therefore, apparently a controlled sort of language meaning "makes A, but just doesn't secrete it".  It could, however, be construed, simply by means of looking at the phrase without prior knowledge of the controlled use of the terms, to mean "doesn't secrete A, for whatever reasons".

...In that sense of meaning, I'm also a "B non-secretor", an "AB non-secretor", a "gravel non-secretor", a "two-headed cat non-secretor", and a non-secretor of just about any other person, place, or thing you could or could not even begin to imagine.

Confused yet?  *L*  Welcome to the Wonderful World of Semantics!  

(Maybe I was meant for law or MBA school.)

Jan, I don't sleep either (thanks to hyper-sensitive ears which hear every movement any of my children makes during the night, plus a baby who wakes up nearly every hour) and I can say that even if you're doing everything right diet-wise, if you're not sleeping you're still going to have a heap of complaints.  I think most of the current [few, admittedly] issues I still have stem from the fact that I don't get REM sleep.

yes, sleep helps restore and repair the body......
the muscle skeletal structure and all......it says so in the arthritis book....so the lack thereof, can lead to unnecessary issues later on.

Are A-nonnies tense people?  Are we overly sensitive, hypervigilant, and oftentimes worn down?
Posted by: Heidi, Wednesday, August 20, 2008, 2:31pm; Reply: 27
I don't think I'm tense. I suppose I might be a little overly sensitive though.

I just read your wisdom teeth story Ron, and sometimes feel -like you- that nothing is ever simple for me. Everything that happens to my body has to be the worst case scenario.

I choose not to let my "bad luck" wear me down though.  ;)

Yes, that's it...

It's nice to finally be understood for a change.

Not tense, but definitely sensitive. I suppose that comes from me being an explorer. In fact, I think for me being an explorer overides many of the blood type tendencies that are supposed to be common place for type A.

Yeah, the nonnie trait does seem to impart unto us the more "Hunter" kind of hypervigilance... hence my similarity to the Hunter personality.

We nonnies really are a whole other dimension unto ourselves:  It appears to me that we seem to require a deeper and more personal intimacy and sense of order in our lives than secretors necessarily do.

I've finally gotten to the point where I can laugh about being the odd one out and the one who receives all the "bad luck."  I used to feel sorry for myself, then I got sarcastic about it, then I got used to it and could accept it, and now I laugh about it.  BTD has helped free me from a lot of the worry I used to have about life in general and the feeling that people were out to get  me.  I used to spend a good bit of time talking myself out of the sarcastic depression that sometimes came....but it gets easier and easier, and I find that the more I can laugh at myself and at life, the better my "luck" gets.  I put "luck" in quotes because I think it's a silly word.  I believe all things happen for a reason and we won't necessarily know what that reason is.  But if I can laugh instead of getting upset, everybody's the happier for it.

That's the same reason I used the quotes. I don't believe in good or bad luck, but for lack of a better term... ;D

I too believe that everything -the good and the bad- happens for a reason, and that we are not given more then we can handle.  :)

Actually, on the quantum level, everything operates on the randomized bell curve principle.  And if there's an algorithm to the randomness on that level, no one's yet found it.

Sorry to freak anyone out by pointing that out, but the universe seems to be build on the perfect blending of chance and predictability.

Well, then, perhaps the only thing that changed me from total madness was my unknowingly being a "Teacher" because if there's one thing my father loved to do to us when I was trying to grow up as a kid, it was move us around!

Sheesh.
