It’s been a long month here at the Dude Ranch.
Lots of blog posts for Celiac Awareness Month. And lots of BS that went along with it.
Some saying I’m being too negative. Really? Helping 30 celiacs in 30 days is being negative. Why? Because I don’t say how awesome Udi’s bread is?
Some saying I’m being too positive. “Dude…celiac sucks. Can’t you talk about the realities of our disease instead of always shining a bright light on it?” (Yes…that was an actual email.)
Made me think of this…
Too many comments of people posting their own agenda. Yes…I know you believe in the SCD diet. Start your own blog and tell the world about it.
And of course the media chose Celiac Awareness Month to do an all out assault on those eating gluten-free for their health. This will be discussed shortly.
But the biggest reason for the break is my amazing, wonderful, beautiful, adorable, special Mrs. Dude.
She got diagnosed with breast cancer a few weeks ago. We believe they caught it early enough so long-term, she should be good as new. We just have some tough decisions to make right now and the next few months will be challenging, to say the least.
It’s funny…while I was writing this blog post, Mrs. Dude called me. I told her I was going to mention that she’s had health issues but nothing specific. She said to please share the news so people understand the need to get screened on a regular basis.
She skipped a few years of getting her annual mammogram. Imagine if she skipped this year too?
So please folks…get screened. The breast you save may be your own.
See you next week.
