A friend of mine has made the following statement:

Someone asked me if I would be willing to eat a croissant and film my reaction to it and offered to pay me $150 for it! :rolleyes:

I said no way! But having thought about it for a little while, I'm thinking it might not have been such a bad endeavour. I'd want to bargain with them a little bit and I think I'd want a higher price though... More like 10-100 thousand dollars maybe???

What do you think? Would you eat something laden with gluten so that you could earn a certain amount of money?

For $150, I wouldn't do it, but I think would do it for a lot more money.

It would have to be more than $150 but I've got a kid going to an out of state college. :D

And it has to be something really tasty!

It's the filming that would make me ask for more money. I mean, what are they going to do? Follow me into the bathroom? Seriously?

There is too much depersonalization fostered by the internet and reality television, so people are thinking that games and gambling, combined with voyeurism, have the better outcome than real life doing the right thing.

I recently was glutened at my daughters wedding reception and the "effects" are still very fresh in my mind (and body).

No I would not.No amount of money is worth that .Not to mention the fact I would not want a camera there during the explosions :blink:

I may do it for $10K or more but would feel conflicted inside knowing what I did after being soooooo careful for nearly six months. :o

I would be all over that. But it would need to be a hell of a lot more than $150 for me to purposefully eat gluten. I'm thinking over $3000.

Reminds me of an old joke

He: Would you have sex with me for a million dollars?

She: Yes

He: Would you have sex with me for ten dollars?

She:What do you think I am?

He: We have established that, Now we are dickering over the price.

I think I'm going to hell for snickering over this one as loudly as I did. :lol:

You know, for a million, I'd do it. Think I could advertise on craigslist and find a willing rich person to offer? I've got some student loans and medical bills...

At this point, absolutely! Not sure about later when I've been completely gluten free and feel better though.

After being to hell and back, health wise, and now living each day as a gift and a day of grace, there is no amount of money you could pay me to ruin what is otherwise priceless.

If someone gave me 100K, I'd definitely eat gluten. I'd do it for as low as $3K but I also have a wedding and honeymoon to pay for :)

I'm with you, kiddo.

No amount of $$$ can compensate me for the the years I have spent in gluten-induced hell. If you lived what I have lived, you would not even find this question amusing..... :unsure: and I have a gigantic sense of humor. B)

I suppose some people think watching someone have "potty issues" is entertaining or funny?? (if so, geesh, get a life !!!!)....but loss of brain function, burning nerve pain, ataxia, hair loss, insomnia and joint pain, needing help with getting dressed or being picked up off the bathroom floor because I am so drained of energy, head banging from a migraine and soaking wet and trembling from nervous system impairment? feeling totally disoriented??...wow...that's not so much fun nor very pretty to watch...just ask my husband how much "fun" it's been....

Not sure celiac disease symptoms should be considered a "you tube" event. :rolleyes: WTF??? It's hard enough to be viewed with credibility as it is....many people thinking Gluten-free is "just a fad" and some people told--for years-- "it's all in your head"...

Man, if someone I knew asked ME that question, knowing all I have been through, my husband would probably punch his lights out. :lol:

I wholeheartedly agree! I would have to be pennyless, homeless and very desperate for the money before I let someone film my reactions, one of which is seizures. Medical suffering should not be a source of entertainment.

For $10-1000K? I could possibly stand the (at least) day and a half of seizures. Then the couple of days of recovery would be pushing it. For $150? No! I'm not trying to bragg or boast about anything, but I make $150 in four hours at work and hopefully even less time after my annual review. So,,, $10-100K, maybe. $150,,,,,,, no, not worth my time. :D

Later!

    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      Hello,  I am currently 20 months, 1 day gluten-free. I stopped consuming dairy a few weeks after going gluten-free when I realized I was having lingering symptoms. Since going gluten-free dairy-free each day has been a day closer to feeling like my old self. As a child never had any issues with gluten or dairy. It wasn't until a year before my blood test/endoscopy that I began getting sick or noticing any issues. Diaherria, nausea, abdominal pain like I ate a sparkler, shaking and trembling. My whole experience before going gluten free was a nightmare. That year I lived in fear of leaving my home because I would be so sick and restroom hopping and uncomfortable at work. As of now, I m doing much better. I can tolerate things I couldn't following my diagnosis... Orange juice, coffee, salsa... And have gained 10 pounds back. I do miss cheese dearly but am afraid to try and see if I can tolerate dairy again. Is there anyone who can give any advice about reintroducing dairy? When is the best time to try? Should I wait I until I hit my 2 year mark? Any advice, successful or unsuccessful stories would be much appreciated so I can decide what the next step is for me... Or if I will even make a step. That ks in advance. ~Nora.
