In Topic: The New Celiac Drug Is Out There

25 May 2013 - 10:29 AM

I agree with what Meatballman wrote about big pharm and doctors.

I suspect when this drug or better ones comes out, the doctors will stop being in denial about Celiac 

and will get a good educational push from big Pharm to diagnose more people for Celiac.

That's what bugs me the most.

They don't listen to undiagnosed Celiac patients now but will listen to the pharmaceutical reps.

Hey, I know this is off topic . Maybe a bit personal but nice car . Is it yours ?

I would rather just continue a gluten free life style . I put my trust in doctors and big pharma. for many years . All they did was make me more sick . I'm skeptical when it comes to the relationship between dotors and drug companies . Are they really there  to help . FOLLOW THE MONEY .

In Topic: Disney Thinks Bullying A Gluten-Free Kid Is Funny

20 May 2013 - 02:22 PM

Laughing at yourself is one thing. This is a CHILDREN'S show. Laughing at CHILDREN with a disease isn't funny.  Do you have kids?  Have you had your child bullied because of medical issues?   Bullying happens to most kids and kids with food issues (Celiac or allergies) report an even higher rate of bullying. And it can be deadly.  

It isn't funny.  Would you think a kid who was bald because they were going through chemo was funny? Doubt that would ave hit the airwaves. Why is this different?

As a matter of fact I do have kids . My intent was not to stir up any anger . I am sorry if I did . Disney parks takes Celiac very seriously and goes out of thier way to cater to us . My children watch Disney channel almost exclusively . No I wouldn't think a kid going through chemo was funny . But occasionally we have to look and laugh at certain things . Sorry if I sounded insensitive .

Just change the channel and move on . Sometimes we have to laugh at ourselves . Disney is a great . When visiting Disney they take Celiac and other diseases VERY SERIOUSLY . Heck making fun of things is just part of life .
