Did you know that Spring 2011 marked the launch issue of Why Bother To Go On Living magazine? (I did. Because I had to spend time in my mother’s doctor’s waiting room & it was either this or Boy’s Life magazine.) Finally, an information source for people who suffer from Allergies, Asthma, and Gluten Intolerance! (What did they do before this? Probably just exploded around trees and in restaurants, I guess. Probably just tortured everyone around them with their sneezing and gastrointestinal distress and anaphylaxis and stuff.)
But thanks to Allergic Living all the bubble-dwellers of America now know that Yes! You Can Dine Out! And they will tell you which trees you are allergic to, where they are located, and which ones are the Bad Boys of Spring! Aaaaand there’s news on Peanut Allergies! And a new scary Gluten Disease! And allergy-free wine! (Seriously? People are allergic to wine? This is a real thing that is happening now?) All this AND a recipe for gluten-free carrot cake! Oh Boy Oh Boy!
I’m a little concerned, however, that they’ve already blown their wad, so to speak.
I mean, there you go: the Top Eight Triggers for people suffering from severe food allergies. Thanks. Now what? The launch issue covers how to dine out if you have food allergies, how to cope with seasonal allergies, how to cook without gluten, and what might happen to you if you come into contact with things you are allergic to. Sooooo……what goes in Issue #2?
Hm, yeah, I thought so. Oh dear, yet another instance in which we should just stop trying to do things and make things and let the Internets take over. Truth.
