I don't know. I am an avid reader. I read about a book every five days. I read all the previous Dan Brown books and like them. But Inferno is hard for me to get in to. I don't know why. It just doesn't have that I can't put it down allure that his other books do.  I actually started it a few weeks ago and read about 50 pages and haven't been back to it. That is very unusual for me. I usually devour books.

 

Does it just take some time to pick up???

I'm a slow reader, but as the Divinci Code, it only took me a  weekend.  But in my mind, I'm trying to reconnect the pieces.  Not to say that I did not like the book.   I LOVED the book.  I would just  like to discuss certain issues within the book.

 

I can't convince anyone to read the book, but it is a fast paced and not without intriqued book . As well as moral-legal-ethical-environmental issue to ponder, kinda book.

 

I loved it, but I would like to discuss it with another reader.

I'd like to read that. I'll put a hold on it at the library once their IT service is up and running - the central branch is under water from the flood still so services are pretty limited.

Are you in Calgary? If so, I hope your family is holding up well and you suffered little damage. It's just awful what Calgarians and those in High River and other Alberta areas have gone through.  Terrible, just terrible.

Nicole, can I send you a copy, or my copy?  I apologize...Canadian news does not always filter down to us, or perhaps I should pay more attention.

Yes, i'm in Calgary but i'm up on a hill in an unaffected area (just damp basements from rain).  We have friends and family who didn't fair as well, but the clean-up is well under way.

 

I feel bad for those in High River too. For some dumb reason, the town and military wouldn't let people back in to pump out thier houses because there was no gas or electricity yet (who cares-it's summer) so those houses have been under water for a week... they won't be salvageable. 

And the worst part is that insurance doesn't cover flooding up here. I'm not sure if that's a Canadian thing or just in Alberta.  :(

 

Lisa- LOL Oh no, don't send me your book! I'll get a copy of it eventually; it will just be a few more weeks.  It's no rush.  Thanks so much for offereing though - you're very sweet!  :)

 

I just hope their interlibrary loan system is up and running by the fall; we homeschool, and are at the library for resources a couple of times a week for books and videos.

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
