I'm a huge pet lover as well, but I totally agree, there are so many different pet publications. I voted for the allergy one of course and it was winning but not by a whole bunch so please go vote! There are so many different allergies/food sensitivites that I believe this would have a huge readership, especially if done by Martha Stewart.

To my email buddies: All of you know that I rarely send out "mass" emails or jokes or stuff like that. I get them, read them and sometimes pass them along, but that's rare for me.

Today's email is to ask you to go into the Martha Stewart magazine site and vote on behalf of me and my husband that her magazine should add more information about food allergies and food intolerances.

As many of you know, Mike has been suffering with this for many, many years and I can attest there's just not enough information or publications out there about it. the General Public is so in the dark about Celiac Disease.

So your help in voting on this would be most appreciated by all celiacs like Mike. Perhaps if there was more publications about food intolerances, more restaurants and food manufacturers would be more agreeable to make their products "gluten free." And as a result there would be more food choices and restaurants for celiacs like Mike to go to - and the further result would be that we could finally take a vacation after so many years as restaurants would be more aware of food intolerances and be able to handle providing "gluten free" meals.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and making a "vote."

Debbie

Just a sample of what I am emailing to my friends and relatives...... I want to push these numbers even higher.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

I just voted again! We're only up 1% now to the pet mag. I don't much care for Martha Stewart, but a magazine for folks like us might help to change my opinion!

My celiac support group sent this around to the members last night in an email. I voted then and Pet Lovers was at 37% and the Food Allergies was at 36%, this morning, the Food Allergies is at 54% and Pet Lovers has dropped down to 28%--it's looking good for us. Now let's hope they do a good article covering celiac. You would think with a member of her staff being a celiac, she could have done an article without a vote.

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!

I think there should be a vote to get Martha a new computer monitor. That's one piece of junk she's using in the picture of her "taking time from her very busy day to vote". :lol:
