All good ideas Amybeth....but we must also make them understand our PAIN and SUFFERING while having these big food parties!!!

I wonder if we should make the gluten-free food we serve them taste really ghastly, so they feel even MORE sorry for us? ;)

this is fantastic....

oh and by the way, Bev and everyone, I think CRAZY is actually when you fully lose touch with reality, right?....unfortunately that never happened to me, because I think that would have been enormously more enjoyable.... ;)

OH I HEAR YOU!

Well hopefully then you are like every other celiac you wan toto do more for the cause.... Before I knew I hab celiac I was a Caterer, challenging yes.... so now I am trying to make my desserts gluten free and sell them.. This disease is so new getting involved now is going to be a very very great thing. Do what you can use your skills and your heart to help. I wish you the Best of Luck.. Good for You!

OK- so I NEED something to get me going again after everything that's gone on the last 3 months (quick version: had gall bladder out, took PhD exam, 36 year old husband had stroke, and now I have C Diff). I need something to look forward to, to strive for..... no, finishing my PhD is all well and good, but something more than that. That's like my career.

So, I was thinking I wanted to do something to raise Celiac awareness and money for Celiac research and be the first person with Celiac's to..... and that's where I get stuck. I want it to be something challenging, that I have to train for, but not too extreme. Don't want to be the first person with Celiac's to climb Mt Everest (too easy :P ). Something that I can raise money for and traon for between now and June 2007 because I could do it over next summer.

So, of course I've come up with silly ideas like:

1. First Celiac to try every gluten free beer in the world :P (OOH YEAH!!!!!!)

2. First Celiac to swim her way cross country (not literally- but drive from state to state and swim in at least one river/ocean/lake in every state (check out www.swimmingholes.org)

3. First Celiac to eat a pizza without keeling over (not worth it)

But I'm having trouble thinking of ideas that aren't too outrageous (like surfing on every continent which I would KILL to do but I have a hard time believing anyone would give me money to do this. Too fun!)

Marathon running is out (no back).

Someone biked across the US last summer to raise Celiac awareness so that's already been done.

Lets see- I like to swim, surf, ski, photograph, travel, walk, hike,

Looking for inspiration

Funny and outrageous ideas totally welcome!!!!

If you want them to feel our pain, then let's do this: Have the world's largest Celiac pizza-eating convention . . . . and then hold the Guinness Book of World Record for the largest number of port-a-potties used during a 24 hour time period!!!!! :lol:

That's funny, my mom was going to go to a gluten-free vendor fair in NY for me but she had a UTI and didn't want to go because she said, "I don't want to be somewhere and have to worry about there not being a bathroom."

I laughed and said, "mom, think about this for a second: It's a building full of celiacs, trust me, there will be bathrooms EVERYWHERE!" :P

OMG THis sounds like so much fun! I really like the book idea. I looked on the chickensoup.com page and they have proposal ideas. What do you all think? I would love to be a part of putting this book together. I would also be very interested in a photography book...avid photographer here! :D I'd do a bike riding thing too...that would be fun!

Even better news...I have no life!!!!! So, if anyone is really serious about any of this, email me, cuz I'm all over it! I say let's start crackin' guys! Who can we get to help fund this, what should we do...LETS GO!!!

Seriously drop me a note, I'm so full of energy and ready to spread the celiac awareness to the WHOLE WORLD!!!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
