FIRE UP THE GRILLS!
It’s August … time for another sumptuous BBQ recipe from Chef Andy Lalonde at Custom Catering (www.
customcateringli.com).
Brooklyn native Barbara Cataletto was a gym teacher who
later became a medical coder in the spine field. Today, she
is a noted author, lecturer and recognized subject matter
expert in spine coding and reimbursement. The Lloyd Neck
resident founded her own company, Business Dynamics LLC,
a Mineola-based business that has grown steadily over the
years. To date, BDL has submitted more than 300,000 surgical spine claims, totaling close to 1 billion dollars in revenue,
and spinning off three subsidiaries: Business Dynamics Consulting – customized consulting for the spine industry; The
Business of Spine, advanced education for the coder who
wants to specialize in spine, and Business Dynamics Online
– webinars and online courses for the spine specialist.
When Barbara started her career in this field, there was no
footprint to follow, so she blazed her own trail. To ease the
burden of spine coding, Barbara developed CaseCoder™ the
only web-based “spine specific” coding program available
today. Barbara is also a patient advocate who has taken appeals for payments to various Attorneys General offices and
CEOs of health care companies when she felt a patient was
wrongly denied coverage.
With all this, Barbara still finds time to be philanthropic,
including helping to build homes for returning servicemen.
She believes in mentoring and supporting women of all
ages, encouraging them to be the best they can be. “There
is power to be harnessed when women work together,” says
Barbara, and that is why she is so passionate about helping
women succeed.
Barbara likes living on Long Island because it has the same
sophistication as New York without the constant chaos. Living near Caumsett State Park gives her the opportunity to
spend time with her family in a peaceful place!

Under Your Skin
Varicose Veins
Varicose veins affect half of people 50 years or older,
according to the Department of Health and Human
Services. These enlarged, twisted veins near the skin’s surface, occur most frequently in the legs, but can also appear
in the ankles. While not a serious condition, it is often an
uncomfortable condition and may lead to more serious
health issues.
According to Mark A. Schwartz MD, FACS, RPVI Board
Certified in Vascular Surgery and Medical Director of The North
Shore Vein Center in Lake Success (www.longislandvein.com),
“Over 80 million people have varicose veins. Females are
affected approximately four to one over males. These conditions are often hereditary, but
hormonal factors including
puberty, pregnancy, menopause
and the use of birth control pills
can also play a role. The development of varicose veins may occur
at any age but usually occurs
between the ages of 18 and 35
years, and peaks between 50
and 60 years. As one ages, the
cumulative effects of advancing
age will lead to persistence or
worsening of the condition.”
In some cases,
varicose veins
may be
completely nonsymptomatic and
still appear. In
certain cases,

issues.
Cause
One-way valves found in veins
keep blood flowing from the
legs towards the heart. Issues in
the valves, causing them to not
function and blood to collect in
the legs, creates pressure build up resulting in
varicose veins. Veins become frail, bulky and distorted. A primary reason
behind varicose veins is because the legs endure the most pressure from
the body to carry blood back to heart.
Most commonly caused by genetics and aging, 50 to 55 percent of
women and 40 to 45 percent of men in the United States suffer from
some type of vein problem, according to the Department of Health and
Human Services. The valves in veins weaken and do not work as well as
they used to, due to aging. Being born with weak valves may also increases the risk of contracting varicose veins.
Varicose veins are also symptomatic of pregnancy due to the increased
amount of blood in the body, enlarging legs. A growing uterus also adds
pressure on leg veins. Three months after delivery, varicose veins may
improve, but may return with each pregnancy.
14 • August 2011 • LONG ISLAND WOMAN
A job that entails standing for long periods of time, consequently adding
pressure on leg veins, can cause varicose veins to occur. Also, being dramatically overweight can also be grounds.
Symptoms
Typically varicose veins have a dark blue or red color, are swollen and
have a coiled appearance underneath the skin. Mild symptoms range from
burning, tenderness or leg pain. After standing or sitting for long periods,
symptoms may worsen. They commonly develop on thighs, the back of
the calves or inside the leg. During pregnancy they can form around the
vagina and buttocks. In certain cases, they are symptomatic of a deep vein
thrombosis, a blockage in the deeper veins, which may need treatment.
“Initially, varicose veins may only appear as bumps or lumpy protrusions
under the skin. Eventually, these veins may become quite tender and cause

Health
Varicose Veins
symptoms of fatigue, aching pain, and heaviness, relieved by leg elevation,” explains Dr. Schwartz.
When patients develop swelling, skin changes or leg ulceration, Dr.
Antonios P. Gasparis, MD, FACS and Director of Stony Brook Vein Center
recommends they see a doctor. “The skin is an organ, prolonged swelling
leads to organ damage over time and advanced disease presents with skin
damage, pigmentation or ulceration,” according to Dr. Gasparis. Veins
can also become swollen, red, tender and hot to the touch. Sores or a
rash on the leg or ankles can develop.
Side Affects
In some cases, varicose veins may be completely non-symptomatic and
still appear. In certain cases, varicose veins can lead to more serious health
issues. Skin sores or ulcers may develop due to chronic blood back up.
These sores are slow to heal and sometimes cannot ever fully heal, until
the backward blood flow in the vein is repaired.
“Left untreated these symptoms may progress to more severe problems
such as chronic leg swelling, eczema-type symptoms, skin thickening and
discoloration, as well as ulcerations,” warns Dr.
Schwartz. “The early signs of pain, swelling and
heaviness must be recognized so that the condition can be treated before irreversible skin
changes occur.”
Superficial thrombophlebitis, which is a
blood clot formation in veins below the skin, is
also common. Skin will become scarlet, firm
but tender and feel hot around the vein. Deep
vein thrombosis is a blood clot deep in the vein
that can cause a pulling sensation in the calf,
pain, warmth, swelling and discoloration. In
cases where, deep vein thrombosis causes no
symptoms, the blood clot can travel to the lungs and be fatal.
While not all
varicose veins can
be prevented,
there are steps
that can reduce
their occurrence.
Diagnosis
An examination by a doctor will allow proper diagnosis. Patients usually stand up and then sit with legs dangling in order for the doctor to spot
the varicose veins, which are evident due to the physical symptoms of
darker veins, dry thinning skin and inflammation of the area. In order to
rule out other disorders, tests may be performed. Ultrasounds are used to
see the structure of the vein, investigate blood flow and check for blood
clots. Sound waves are used create images of the structures in the body.
There are several types of doctors that can treat varicose veins. A phlebologist specializes in vein treatment, a vascular doctor focuses on the
blood system, an interventional radiologist specializes in using imaging
tools to see inside the body and can often treat issues with little or no surgery. Dermatologists are also capable of treating varicose veins. Many of
these doctors perform some of the procedures used for treating varicose
16 • August 2011 • LONG ISLAND WOMAN
veins. A good starting point is inquiring with your general physician
regarding which specialist he or she recommends. Inquiring with your
insurance provider about which type of doctor is covered under your policy may also be beneficial.
Treatment
Lifestyle changes, in addition to medical treatment can relieve symptoms, prevent complications and improve the appearance of varicose
veins. A doctor is likely to propose lifestyle modifications if the varicose
veins are not causing many symptoms. Should symptoms be more severe
a doctor may suggest a variety of management options.
Many treatments of varicose veins can be done in the home. For immediate treatment to decompress varicose veins, Dr. Eli Anker, a vascular surgeon with a practice in West Islip, recommends patients wear prescription
surgical compression stockings. “They are best worn throughout the day.
Obviously this treatment is only temporary since the veins return to their
usual size and extent once the stockings are removed,” describes Dr.
Anker. Many patients complain the stockings are difficult to put on and
may be too hot to wear during the summer months.
“In the past, patients have avoided treatment as they are most familiar
with out-dated stripping procedures that were painful and came with a
prolonged convalescence,” explains Dr. Schwartz. “Recent advances in
vein treatment now offer patients an easier alternative. Procedures are
now being performed in an office setting.”
Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for varicose veins. A liquid
chemical is injected into the vein causing the walls to seal together and
remain closed. This stops the blood flow, converting the vein into scar tissue. The vein fades in a few weeks, but may need treatment more than
once. This in-office procedure may cause red or raised skin, bruises at the
injection site and groups of fine lines around the treated area, which will
also disappear in a few weeks.
Radiofrequency and laser treatments treat deeper leg veins, called the
saphenous veins, and can replace surgery for severe cases of varicose
veins. This technique can also be done in a physician’s office and requires
a catheter, a very small tube, to be placed into the vein. A probe travels
through the tube that heats the inside of the vein to close it via radio frequency or a laser. Local anesthesia is required and slight bruising is common after treatment.
Prevention
While not all varicose veins can be prevented, there are steps that can
reduce their occurrence. Apply sunscreen to protect the skin on the legs,

LONG ISLAND WOMAN • August 2011 • 17
Meredith
Baxter
Owning Up
by David Lefkowitz
There’s an old motto that goes,
“It’s not our drinking that gets us stinking; it’s our stinking thinking
that gets us drinking.” In fact, one could blame misjudgment for a
host of wrong choices made in life and relationships. And if you’re
actress Meredith Baxter, you can fault stinking thinking for three
failed marriages and a bout with alcoholism while enduring years
of verbal and physical abuse and decades of self-abnegation.
Yes, that Meredith Baxter: the perky, blonde, golden girl who
embodied the shikshe goddess of Bridget Loves Bernie, the determined, divorced young mother of Family and, most memorably,
the nurturing post-hippie mom of Family Ties. In her just-released
autobiography, Untied, Baxter not only rips the cover-girl surface
off those seemingly ideal years with her tales of spousal abuse and
marital woe, but she also recounts her bout with breast cancer and
decision, in 2009, to come out publicly as a lesbian.
“I thought (the publisher’s) the initial request for the book had
been about the whole coming-out process, and that was a little
disturbing,” Baxter says in our late-winter phone conversation,
“because I thought, `that does not warrant a book.’ It’s not all that
interesting, and I’d like to think I’m more than that. Although, if you
Googled me, you’d think that’s all I’ve ever done.”
When I counter that sex sells books and that when a woman who
was straight for decades suddenly declares she prefers ladies, prurient curiosity is likely to follow, Baxter laughs, “You, too? But seriously,
“As it happens, I like men much better now that the
whole sexual component is out of the way.”
there were no conditions on the book. I simply had to write what I knew. If I had to write
this book 20 years ago, or even 10, I wouldn’t have known what to write because I really
hadn’t learned anything. I’d never done any self-examination. I was just trying to keep my
head above water. It wasn’t until I decided, “Okay, let me take a look at what I’ve learned
about myself in my (then) 62 years. It turns out, everything I’ve learned I’ve learned in
therapy and in a 12-step program.”
The main thing Baxter says she’s gleaned from digging deep is taking responsibility
for her role in her own history. Whatever the circumstances of your victim-hood,
throwing yourself a pity party doesn’t cut it. “When I got out of my third marriage [to
late actor and screenwriter Michael Blodgett],” Baxter recalls, “I had a kind of breakdown. And it was not because of the loss of the relationship because I knew that had
been a disaster. All I could think was, `How did I find myself in the same place yet
again?’ I remember howling in my living room in despair because I had created such
disaster. It was horrible. I don’t mean the marriage was all horrible, because he wasn’t
a bad guy, and sometimes there was a lot of fun to be had. But there was dissociative behavior on his part, and there was a terrible price to pay at the end because of
stuff that went on. So it was the first time since I started my 12-step program that I
realized I had no answer for my next step. I was broken. I had hit bottom. And that’s
when I started asking for help.”
Continues Baxter, “I was guided to a therapist I’ve been with all this time who has
been remarkable for me. I redoubled my efforts in the program and started doing
the work I had never done before. Well, some of that was taking a look at what my
part was in things. If you’re a victim, you don’t have a part; it all happens to you. To
illustrate my thinking, I was at a meeting, and I heard a woman talk about how we’re
trained as children to go to the parental well for food, nurturing, sustenance, love
– but some parents’ wells are empty. They’re not empty at us; they’re just empty.
“I was blown away,” Baxter says of this revelation about her unhappy childhood as
the daughter of sitcom creator Whitney Blake and radio announcer Tom Baxter. “I
had always thought it was empty at me, that I had been a target. I had lain all my
troubles at my mother’s feet, so I had to go back and say, `Who was my mother?
What did she want out of her life that she didn’t get, that put her in a situation
where she had to look only to take care of herself and maybe not take care of me so
much?’ And I came to understand her. But I couldn’t forgive her yet. So I had to look
further and say, `What about me? How did I handle my children?’ I looked at all the
times when I wasn’t able to show up for them. When I was afraid and didn’t protect
them because I was taking care of myself instead. Was it shabby? Sometimes. Was
I doing the best I could? I had to allow that yes, I was. And if I could allow that for
myself, I had to give that to my mother, which totally changed the way I saw her.”
Asked if she was beaten or molested as a child, Baxter allows that she had a stepfather “who would switch us, but I would not call him an abuser. He was a very rough
guy, and he did sexualize me very early, just in the way he treated me, but no, I was
not abused. My childhood wasn’t bad; it’s just that stuff happened that was very
painful. I lived my life as if it had been a tragedy. Kids who had grown up in foster
homes with lots of brutality and cigarettes put out on them – somehow, because
they didn’t have the same kind of self-perpetuated thinking, came out and went,
`Boy, I grew up with some motherf**kers. But I’m okay!’ Me, I imploded. I didn’t want
to let an opportunity for pain and despair pass by.”
And so, her first youthful marriage crash landed, followed by marriage number two,
for 15 years, to Baxter’s Bridget Loves Bernie co-star, David Birney. And that’s where
things get ugly.
“I never called David any names in my book,” Baxter says, but she stands by her
public statements that he was both verbally and physically abusive. “Yes, he hit me
before we were even married, and yes, he’d been rough with the kids. But I pretended
not to see that. I pretended not to call it what it was. But this is not about him; I’m
not trying to demonize him. It’s about the narration I had in my head that allowed
me to go there. And I had to continue this narration as more violence happened. And
there wasn’t a slew of violence. You don’t have to get hit every day to know that’s
in the deal; it can come out at any time. It was the daily derision, the mockery, the
put-downs. That’s the stuff that’s so corrosive.
“As for why I didn’t just leave,” continues Baxter, “talk with women who have been
in abusive relationships. Your sense of choice is just not there. There’s a story I cited
in my book that I remembered so profoundly: Hedda Nussbaum and Joel Steinberg.
Remember, the couple in New York about 20 years ago? He abused her for four years
and then killed their six-year-old daughter. I’m not saying my life was on a par with
them. However, everyone was saying to (Nussbaum), who was a pariah and blamed
almost as much as he was, `Why did ya stay?’ WHY DID YA STAY?’ And I remember
her sobbing and saying, `I didn’t know I could leave.’ I sat there sobbing watching
this, `cause I felt the same way. I had a car, I had a job, I went out in the world, but
still, I didn’t know I could leave. That choice never occurred to me.”
(On his official website, Birney contests Baxter’s portrayal of events in “Untied.”
While not denying any specific allegations, the actor accuses his ex-wife of constructing a mean-spirited “fairy tale,” one which hurls accusations that tend to crop
up suspiciously often in bitter custody battles.)
Asked how she finally got the gumption to exit the marriage, Baxter recalls, “We
had a Thanksgiving dinner that was no different from other Thanksgivings. I assume
people were at the house; I don’t remember who was there. And it was after the dinner, and I was cleaning up. And David came and sat down and said, `Well, what are
we gonna do next year so it’s not a disaster like this year?’ And I remember thinking,
`I don’t know. What did I do this year?’ And I’m just standing there crying over the
stove. And my daughter, Eva, who was around 18 or 20 back then, she just leaned
into me and said, `What are you waiting for?’”
“I didn’t feel some surge of activism,” notes Baxter. “I just had no defense against
what she had told me. So I said to David, `There’s not gonna be a next time.’ I didn’t
know where those words came from. He just kind of laughed at me, and the mockery
started: `Oh, the little darling, are you feeling bad?’ You know, that kind of shit. But
it started a conversation where somewhere I said, `I’m not happy.’”
For all the obvious acrimony, Baxter at least attempts to shift the focus back to her
own journey. “Yes, I had anger about what transpired. David is not someone whose
process I respect because he treats people unkindly. However, I knew who he was
before I went into that marriage, so how can I blame him? The main idea is that I
cannot see myself as a victim. That’s a toxic position to be in, which is why I would
go back and do it again.”
Alcohol was a helpful crutch, but even getting clean wasn’t the answer to Baxter’s
deeper problems. “I’ve been sober for 21 years, but I didn’t do any of the work the
first ten years, because I really didn’t think I was an alcoholic. I thought everybody
else had a problem. I thought, `I’ll stop drinking because it seems to be bothering people.’ My life got
better, and my relationships with the kids were better,
but it was still my thinking that was the problem. And
my thinking was, `find something outside myself to
solve my problems. And if it wasn’t gonna be alcohol,
then it would be…a guy! I’ll marry this guy, `cause he
seems to want me.’ And I’m thinking, `If you just love
me, I’ll pretend that I don’t see that you lie, that you’re
unfaithful’ – when we met, he was having an affair
on his wife with me! So I knew this was a guy not to
trust. That was my third husband.”
When Baxter finally did the heavy lifting of therapy,
Meredith Baxter continued
she not only realized the vicious cycle she was on but learned something revelatory
about her sexuality. “Look, I was attracted to men,” she explains. “I mean, you listen to
Ricky Martin interviews – he had very happy and successful relationships with women.
It doesn’t mean that you can’t; it’s just not where you want to be. As it happens, I like
men much better now that the whole sexual component is out of the way.”
And as for her partner, building contractor Nancy Locke, the actress says, “We’ve
been together five years, though I’ve known her longer than that. I basically tortured
her at first,” she laughs. “Because I was so distrustful of the way I thought, and I
wanted to make sure I wasn’t lying to myself again. I was attracted to her, and I
enjoyed being with her, but I didn’t trust me.”
Though not overtly political, Baxter does believe she’s making a statement simply by
being open about her homosexuality. “I’m not out there going, `GO GAY!’ Just because
it’s right for me does not mean it’s right for anybody else. But if you’ve known me all
these years, and you liked me all these years, then the fact that I’m gay doesn’t change
anything.”
Also on a happy note, Baxter, cancer-free since the late 1990s, has been a vegetarian for nearly 30 years. “I used to be a big-time runner, but because of back problems,
I can’t do that anymore. Still, Nancy goes to the gym absolutely every day. I go with
her probably three, four times a week. When does it happen that a girl goes from
being a lithe young thing to a little-bit-older woman who has to hold her stomach
in? I never appreciated how thin I was!” Baxter laughs. “I’m a healthy girl, though
vegetarians can still eat a ton of ice cream, dontcha know!” ❖

Meredith Q&A
Any fond memories of Long Island?
There was a lovely family I knew out there on Jones Beach 25-30
years ago. They were friends of David’s, and we went sailing with
them. Growing up in Los Angeles, I’d missed so much because I
noticed these kids understood, from a very young age, the tides, the
tables, the dangers of the water, and when it was good to take the
boats out. It was very foreign to me and wonderfully attractive. We
had a great time out there.
The dream role you never got to play?
Juliet. It’s such a winsome part, and I love the language. But then
it was, `Well, I’ve wayyyy outgrown Juliet.’ Maybe I could do it at
someplace like the Muny opera house in Kansas City that seats
10,000 people. I’d be small enough that they wouldn’t be able to tell
how old I was.
Your thoughts on celebrities being “outed”?
I personally don’t believe in it. It’s none of anyone’s business. This
country was based on freedom of religion, so why can’t it be the
same for your sexuality? We have Methodists and Hindus and Baptists and Jews and Protestants, and we can all go to any church we
want and think, `What dogma speaks to me? Oh, I like their music.
Or, that priest? Ehh.. a little judgmental. I think I’ll try the Baptists.
Oh, too much hellfire and brimstone – that doesn’t speak to me.
Or the Buddhists. That’s very gentle; I like that.’ Where I am now
speaks to me. I feel a comfort in the level of connection here.

A Grown Up Haircut
The names have been changed to protect
the innocent.
Last spring a dear friend told me, before she
sent her teenaged daughter off to college,
that she was going to treat her to a “real haircut.” That meant one of those $100 minimum
Long Island salons. The same salon where
“Mom” goes.
Daughter came home looking great. Fast
forward a few weeks. Mom and Daughter were in the car and Mom was
laughing about that day’s “Ask Amy” newspaper advice column (the
replacement for Ann Landers.)
Mom said, “Can you believe the trouble this girl had when her Mom sent
her daughter to her salon? Mom quoted the “Ask Amy” letter.
“I am a 17-year-old girl who has gotten herself into a very awkward situation … (my Mom sent me to her stylist)
… The stylist was extremely flirty. At the
end of my appointment he asked me for
my phone number. He’s 24. Mistake No 1:
I loved the attention, so I wrote my phone
number on his tip. When he actually called
that night and asked me to meet him at a
party in the city, I was totally taken aback
and I told him I was busy. He asked me to
call him this weekend to set something up.
I’m freaking out because I have absolutely
no desire to go out with a man more than
six years older who seems to think it’s fine
for a high school girl to meet up with him on a Thursday night in the city!
I can’t tell my mom because he does her hair!”
Mom was hysterical. The laughing kind of hysterical. Daughter was hysterical. The hysterical kind of hysterical. Seems young Daughter had also been
feeling kind of grown up and flirty the day she went to her Mom’s salon. So
when the stylist hit on her, well, she wrote her phone number on his tip. He
called. Big party in the city. Freak out. You know the rest of the story.
Daughter was so petrified she accessed the best advice around – a bunch
of 17-year old girlfriends. Their experienced solution: write to “Ask Amy.”
It’ll never get published anyway. Or will it?
Today Daughter has a year of college under her belt. She’s learned a lot
about the world – including that Mom is a great first stop for advice in crisis. Oh, and Daughter’s hair – she’s growing it out these days. Really. ◆

Jerusalem Maiden
by Talia Carner
Life for a twelve-year-old girl at the beginning of the 20th
century was difficult enough, but for young women who
were members of an ultra-Orthodox sect, there were few
choices and little to look forward to. As soon as she
reached puberty, a “Jerusalem maiden” was expected to
marry a man she had never met and begin a life of hard
work, repressing rituals, frequent childbirth, and living as a
second-class citizen. Esther Kaminsky dreads the day when
her family marries her off because she is an artist who
wants nothing more than to practice her
craft. Creating art, however, is strictly
forbidden by her religious sect, and
although she is able to study in secret
with a teacher who recognizes her talent, she knows that once she is married,
those sublime hours will end. With
Jerusalem Maiden, Talia Carner has written an exquisite tale that recreates a city
and its people and beckons the reader
to follow Esther through her adolescence in Jerusalem, married life in Jaffa,
and a visit to Paris that transforms her
life. Learn more about the author’s fascinating life at taliacarner.com.

providing links to restaurants mentioned in the book, plus recipes, photos of characters’ clothing and jewelry, and more.

The Warmth of Other Suns
by Isabel Wilkerson
This powerful book tells the epic story of a migration few people have heard of, but most have lived
through. Between 1915 and 1970, six million
African Americans migrated from the Jim Crow
South to northern and western cities to change their
lives—and eventually, the fabric of America.
Wilkerson weaves the stories of 1,200 people she
interviewed along with the three main characters of
her story: a Mississippi sharecropper, a Florida laborer, and a Louisiana doctor.
It’s a sweeping story, at
times heartwrenching and
cruel, at times uplifting
and triumphant. The Great
Migration hits close to
home for all those who left
their families, friends, language, and familiar landmarks behind to escape a
society of cruelty, inhumanity and fear. As
Wilkerson writes, “The
actions of the people in
this book were both universal
and
distinctly
American. Their migration
was a response to an economic and social structure
not of their making ...They
did what human beings
looking for freedom,
throughout history, have
often done. They left.”

Merlin’s Tour of the Universe

A book on astronomy may not sound much like a beach read, but
what about a book about wizards? Merlin is a traveler
from the Andromeda galaxy. While his homeworld of
Draziw may be fictional, the facts he dispenses are anything but! Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, writing as
our extragalactic friend, adopts a friendly Q&A format as
he tackles some of the most interesting, insightful, and
occasionally hilarious topics in astronomy. Ever wanted
to know why the air is thinner at higher altitudes? Does
a full moon really create “lunatics?” And just what the
heck is a black hole? Merlin’s responses range from math equations to
jokes to poems. With his
signature down-to-earth
language and goofy
sense of humor, Dr.
Tyson helps curious
readers – from the
mightiest astrophysicist
to the lowliest stargazer
– understand a little bit
more about the universe
