|« Day 35... How I'll come off of the fast, and, a movie review...||the little big blog that could »|
I was flipping channels on the TV the other night, which is a rare occurrence these days, and caught an NBC Dateline special on Jane Pually (I don’t know if I spelt her name right)…who is one of the hosts of the show. They had a feature on her re: her medical problems. Apparently she suffers from hives, which is an allergic skin reaction…when the hives appear on her, they usually appear on her face, which for a TV newsperson, would be a severe detriment. She has had the condition since she was a child and from time to time they spring up. Apparently she had spent some time in Florida recently, when she had the worst outbreak of the skin disfigurement…maybe too many oranges, who knows?
Anyway the news feature dramatized her treatment with oral steroids (the drug of choice to control any hyper immune response)) to control the hives which caused her to gain weight and change her personality. She was than prescribed something to bring her down from the hypersensitivity caused by the steroids until finally she stopped both of the drugs and than was treated for depression. As she was treated for depression she was diagnosed with Bi-Polar disorder…. good grief.
Anyway, they made a drama out of it and not once did they mention if she was tested for food allergies…. obviously the producers of the show felt it wouldn’t be good for ratings.
She is on drugs now to control her Bi Polar depression (very high occurrence in blood type O…see ERFYBT Encyclopedia).
You would think that a person like Jane, who is very concerned with what comes out of her mouth (choice words and good questions), would think to question what she puts in it.
