One more day to subscribe (or renew if you got a notice) to be on the list for the Fall issue.
It's one of our best and calls for ... a banana dance.

I just read this on the email update from Allergic Living.
I can't wait to read this article!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quote:
Last year, humour writer Joel Stein scoffed at the rise in food allergies among kids as "a yuppie invention" of over-zealous parents. Well, Stein is eating his words. And his one-year old is no longer eating nuts.


...the words eating nuts at the end are in red bold print. Am I supposed to be able to click on them for the rest of the article? Nothing happens when I do click.

BC 2007 - that one's actually right in the NewsReport, you just need to click the red link "eating nuts" to reach it.

Bonus in the Fall issue - however, photos of the 2 most photogenic children ever accompany an article by hers truly – BC2007.

Great article, too, on a sister who becomes super advocate for her little brother.
I'll say no more, don't won't to be a "spoiler". But it's really good.

My DS is a "super advocate". He filled me in on a lot of legislative stuff as in grade six as they get to spend a " classroom week at the leg." What a great program. He was so dissappointed when we went in March of this year to hear the MLA's discuss anaphylaxis.

He also administered her epi-pen when we had an accident w/Laffy Taffy.

Little halloween candies - no egg

Regular big Laffy Taffy - egg

Live and learn, thank goodness.

Looking forward to the whole issue.

Another superb issue with endless new ideas, information and products. I really appreciate the work Beatrice and Susan put into the birthday article. All three party articles were wonderful but having a little one heading soon into the world of birthday parties this article was really very insightful for me. I have often wondered where to begin and I have to say that Susan and Beatrice through their experience really gave an excellent outline to work with. They really did think of everything and I know I'll be able go approach the party situation in a much calmer productive manner using their suggestions.

I also was extremely touched by Lauri Harada's article on her mom, 'A Mother's Wisdom'. What a beautiful tribute to her mother. I thank Laurie for passing on to us the beautiful way in which her mother approached life's challenges. There truly was wisdom in her life phylosophy.

To Joey Rao (p. 60)
I wish you all the best. We all feel alone at times especially dealing with issues not greatly understood by general population. I bet there are others at C.U. who are going through similar situations as yourself. Find a network of friends who will be able to support you and you them. You sound like an intelligent, kind young man, don't sell yourself short of life's experiences. :huggy

Joey I can't stop thinking about your write up. Now what I am about to say comes from the mom in me.
Quote:

"I use the disease as an excuse to avoid going out"....."I don't know how to cook that well and I"m still learning to read ingredients.....I make pancakes. That's it."
First off, that's awesome!! Instead of seeing this as an end see it as the beginning. You can make pancakes today, what will you make tomorrow. You will be amazed at what you will be
'whipping up' in a few months.

Joey, I understand completely as many on this forum do the challenge in reading ingredients. To a person not dealing with food issues it might seem to be a straight forward task. But those us who spend and extra hour at the grocery store reading, re-reading and deciphering ingredients all know it isn't so straight forward. It will get easier and like anything practice,practice,practice. I keep a little note pad to write down anything I want to go home and check or companies to call to confirm ingredients. Others I know take their blackberry to the store and call right then and there, I'm a little technically challenged so I stick to a pad of sticky notes. :lol: Bottom line, it does get easier.

I also have to add that not many of us were able to bake, cook (or decorate a cake) before food issues left us no choice. You will find it becomes not just a journey but a journey full of amusing mishaps (my salad dressing phase :roll: ) and excitement the first time something tastes great and works out as planned.

I have benefited enormously from other allergic families who have shared their experiences making my families journey easier. Think how many out there would benefit from your experiences.

Your are able to do this and the more you try the more your confidence you will have in yourself and in your cooking skills.
The reward, self empowerment.
An idea: You could even find a few friends or with your mom start a blog on learning to cook with celiac and crohn's.

All the best Joey. Maybe we'll all be reading your blog soon???
