This is an email from my celiac support group here on Long Island. I thought you might all like to see this too:

Hi Everyone,

Please read the following - it concerns and affects all of us. This was originally posted on Delphiforums:

"I bought a book the other day, "Talk to the Hand" by Lynne Truss, She's the lady who also wrote "Eats, Shoots & Leaves". I bought it because it looked as though it might be quite funny.

I was really irritated by that remark and just put the book away. I now have no desire whatsoever to carry on reading it.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

"The calm river of your life approaches the rocky chute of the rapids - flow on through. You are the same water. The rocks cannot hurt you. Remember, now and then, that you are the water and not the boat. Flow on!

Thanks for sending this Deb.

Obviously that ditz thinks this a fad diet and we are all trying to be part of the "in" crowd. She is only demonstrating how ignorant she really is and how self-centered. As she is such a princess she doesn't want to put up with "this gluten crap."
She should try it from our end of the fence.

Well I have written to the publisher and the agent.

TALK TO THE HAND is something I feel I have to do living with celiac disease. Ha!

I did send an email and invited them to read my blogg how I had to pull Auntie's feeding tube. In cyberspace do people read emails or wearout their delete buttons?

Write your own 'talk to the hand' review. Don't think people want to buy books that get bad reviews. [lol]
