A brave member of our community has produced an article about TMAU which will be featured in the British paper 'The Sun' next week on Tuesday 24th May 2011 or Wednesday 25th May. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT. The article will convey the emotional turmoil we go through as a result of our condition and will highlight the seriousness of having an odour problem.
CONGRATULATIONS TO HER FOR DOING THIS. IT WILL HELP ODOUR SUFFERERS (WHATEVER THE CAUSE OF THAT ODOUR MAY BE) EVERYWHERE.
THANK YOU ELLIE

Thanks All - it hasn't appeared yet - I have gone back to the journalist to see if they have updated her. A Sun photographer came out on Sunday to take the shots so it is definitely going ahead. Sorry for the disappointment - will keep you posted!

Well done Ellie.
Let us know when it is appearing.
I was in a magazine article in April (Pick Me Up), but did not publicise it as they were not very kind with me.
The titles were terrible and they plastered my face all over it, when I asked just for two small pictures.
I gave them the information, but did not have much say in how they used it.
Never mind hope yours is better.

Still not out yet.

Sorry to hear about your experience SK. The Sun initially wanted me to pose with a fish, but I refused; partly because that isn't my primary smell, but also because of the cheap gag element.

The journalist however was very sensitive with me and she has assured me the article will still appear so watch this space...

You were very wise to do that.
I gave them a lot of detail thinking I would choose what they wrote.
But I was wrong, they made it sound so much worse if that is possible!
They got me to send lots of holiday photos. I wondered why but was assured only two small one would be used by the person who originally contacted me.
They enlarged the most unflattering picure saying help I smell of poo!
It was all for shock value.
Never mind I tried. At least I look nothing like my photos anymore.
