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.



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:

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?



Lol ! How much do I need to eat? A bite of cake will cost you 100k. Film the results ..... don't think so. :o

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.

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


We can go together :P

um, one croissant.......not for $150 no way. Maybe for £5000 or more. Hey kids, come watch the lady do the incredible inflating lady magic trick. 0-9 months pregnant in 30 minutes! Actually, no I don't think even 5k would be enough.

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.



Now, THAT's FUNNY!!!! :lol: :lol:

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!

$150 NO way, not ever - $100K absolutely, especially if I get to choose the item!

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

See, I'd do it because I don't suffer from seizures or anything that severe. I've been a celiac for 7 years now and on my worst glutening I deal with severe abdominal pain and D but no seizures. If I had that type of reaction, I wouldn't do it either!

I'm sure they'd be more than happy to film it in the pot if you asked them to... You might even get paid a bit extra if you're lucky... ;)

Well, now, don't I feel like a cheap w****? While I don't think $150 would be worth feeling like cr@p for the next 24 hours, I think $500 would get my attention. But only if I get to pick the day and clear my schedule first.

Of course, I wouldn't like that to be my steady income or anything :).
