This poor woman is getting her ass kicked and celiacs everywhere should be blasting CBS with emails.

"CBS cares"? No, they don't.

We are not hearing the whole story here. I only know it because I read the Gluten Dude's blog and he met with JE on Saturday.

This is BS. She agreed to a part time role while she heals and her part grew as her character became more popular. She tried to keep up, but it was too much and she collapsed from fatigue on the set. Her doc said she needs a reduced work load, but they will not accommodate her.

They claim she is "doing this for more money". No, she isn't.

So they are writing her character out ---and she's been blocked from working elsewhere.

Does this seem fair?

Nope.

I'm so disturbed by this! We love Blue Bloods and we love Jennifer's work on that show!

Seems like she would have grounds for a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

I stopped watching it a few weeks ago. Just curious.....How did they "explain" Jackie's absence?

The thing is, she just wants to work, but they have her tied up in a contract dispute now.

The whole thing is just wrong, IMHO but more disturbing were the comments from fellow celiacs

suggesting she should be able to work because "they do without any problems". Lucky them.

To them, I say....if you know anything about this disease, you should know some people suffer more long term health

problems and they do not always rebound quickly.

In an extremely awkward scene between Jackie and Danny. Jennifer was looking down and mumbled something about needing personal time and Donnie was stiff - very awkward compared to their normal chemistry. Her first female replacement was on the same episode - CBS goofed big time on this one - both with the unjust treatment of Jennifer and for the chemistry of the show. I removed it from my DVR after her last scene.

They messed up; they let go of the only actor who isn't "wooden" in her delivery or overly dramatic with a constant scowl on her face and lacking in personality.

Really--every one of them always looks pissed off.

She balanced Danny's explosive, "I must be perpetually right" character.

And for pete's sake---Bridget Moynahan---get a hairdo! You''re a former model and your hair looks flat and unkempt--- like you just rolled out of bed.

grumble grumble... :lol:

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
