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:

    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet.
