I keep astonishingly busy with a wide variety of things and this blog may seem random in consequence. Expect Mass Effect fanfic (including the ongoing saga of pilot-lovin' Rhi Shepard), thoughts on disability, politics, and a liberal helping of goats. Especially baby goats.
I can start playing again!
the blood test isn’t actually conclusive. You can get a negative and still have it. The 100% conclusive way to find out I think is via a biopsy. Maybe consider asking your doctor about that? :/ I really hope it is definitely negative though
A single blood test isn’t, but the whole panel is pretty much supposed to be, or at least, it should be able to prove you DON’T have it. (Not that you don’t have any reaction to gluten, but that you don’t have celiac). The exception is if you don’t produce the correct type of antibodies period, but they tested that too, and my numbers — if it WAS my numbers — were just fine. :P So whomever the negative sample was, they’re pretty damn negative. We’re just not one hundred percent convinced it was mine, anymore.
EDIT to add: If you mean dad isn’t 100% diagnosed, then yes. The tests do throw false positives. It’s more likely than a false negative.
Back in my day we played this game where you’re a Hershey’s kiss tank and the other guy is a Hershey’s kiss tank and you have to input the right angle and velocity values to hit the other guy’s tank. This is my gaming roots this is what made me who I am today.
I’m extra glum at work today, after spending yesterday on the water with @Aiyestel and then having a lovely evening with @thenoisyfrog.
I think it’s withdrawal.
