#855850 Advice On Giving A Speech About Celiac

Posted by on 25 February 2013 - 04:27 PM

I wasn't really sure where to put this post so if it's in the wrong place, I'm sorry. I'm taking a speech class in college and we have to do an informative speech, I've chosen celiac disease as my topic(I was diagnosed a year ago). I am having some trouble finding articles written by professionals (like a article written by a doctor) I need statistics, expert testimony, and a story to really capture peoples attention. I have three main points in my speech which are 1.Symptoms/Effects on the body 2. Diagnoses/Misdiagnoses 3.Treatment/Gluten Free Lifestyle. I could talk about celiac disease all day but I have to have sources to back up my facts whether its from online or a magazine or journal. I'm also having trouble coming up with a catchy title for my speech. I'm going to bake some gluten-free cookies to bring to class as my "visual aid". If anyone has any advice or thoughts on this I'd love to hear it

#730481 A Tattoo To Symbolize The New Me

Thank you all for your replys, I'm going to find a good artist to draw me something out. This isn't my first tattoo, I've been wanting another one for a while but just wasn't sure what to get. I didn't want to just get something random I wanted something that had meaning behind it. and thanks for all your safety concerns, no worries there though I will only go to the best, most professional tattoo parlor I can find (since its going to be there for the rest of my life!) I can't wait to get it drawn out! I'm so excited!

A Phoenix rising up from a pile of wheat...this is what my son suggested when the question of a symbolic tattoo for Celiacs came up about a year ago. I thought it was perfect.

I absolutely love that idea! I think that is what I'm going to go with. I know that all tattoos sag with age but I would never get a tattoo that I can't cover up if I need to.

Being diagnosed was a life changing moment for me and I want to get a tattoo to symbolize getting better and feeling better. I have no idea what to get or where I was thinking maybe getting it somewhere on my back or side. Any ideas?
