Anyone have thoes few things that you can't resist? My dh brought dunkin donuts munchkins for the kids. When no one was looking I ate like 5. them after dinner no one was around and I found nutter butter cookies stashed. I had 8 :-(. Now I'm having gi symptoms as well as neurological. And sleep- forget it. It was so not worth it in retrospect, but at the time it tasted so good.

Anyone have thoes things you can't resist, no matter how sick they make you?

So far, no.

My rash (or lack of it now) keeps me on the straight and narrow.

I can understand the desire to indulge now and then if you can't see or feel the damage...human nature I guess.

My skin rash and neuro symptoms are so severe I'm just not tempted.

I don't have the slightest inclination to make myself deathly ill by eating something for which I know I'll pay a severe price.

We must have different diseases. I have celiac disease. If I eat 5 munchkins, I am out of commission for months and am doing severe damage to my body. Heck, if I eat one munchkin, I'm in serious trouble. What is possibly worth that?

So far I haven't (only been diagnosed since august) but I have had my first gluten dream-I ate a big fat dinner roll! But seriously, I made myself so sick the last few weeks before my biopsy that I can still remember and avoid (purposely)glutening myself. Also I know what I crave-brownies- and it is almost the only "gluten free" product I make sure I have on hand for just such emergencies! I heard kinni(sp?) makes a couple good gluten-free donuts, they are frozen so maybe you can keep an emergency stash available at all times too!

I used to indulge once in a while, because I could eat cereal all day every day, and I'd eat a bowl of Mini Wheats or Special K Vanilla Almond, or even Golden Grahams, but the pain was too much to deal with eventually that I gave it all up 100%. Now, I'm not even tempted anymore. I remember the pain and it's enough of a reminder to stay away.

Except for when I have dreams I eat things I can't. My subconscious can be so cruel.

If it weren't for gluten free Chex cereal coming to Canada, I'd still be going bonkers.

Although I did not get sick from eating gluten before my celiac diagnosis, I still refused to touch it (and still do) and always will. So, no, I have never done this because if I did and did not get sick I may find myself slacking a bit. Not only that but I need my villi to be strong and healthy. Plus the thought of potential future problems keeps me on a straight path.

Hell no. I lost my career due to celiac and my personal life has suffered greatly, too, not even considering the terrible reactions I have to cc. When I look at known gluten culprits, all I see is poison and suffering and loss.

I grew up on dunkin donuts, and their taste isn't worth what I've lost.

Hope you feel better soon.

I've been gluten free for about 6 weeks... prior to this, I would get a starbucks java chip light frap about 5 times a week. It was my one guilty pleasure. i travel for work (no office, so i would go to starbucks to get my work done and didn't mind working extra hours because i could have my treat). i have driven 45 minutes out of my way on more than one occasion to get it. i've had 2 in one day before. they never made me sick. i've never been a smoker, but i think my addiction to them/pleasure they provided! has to be similar to omeone addicted to cigarettes. i haven't had any since i was diagnosed and today i really, really, really wanted one. i'm afraid if i have one and don't get sick, i'll start to make exceptions (knowing that internal damage is occuring, but not feeling any symptoms). why can't starbucks make this drink gluten free? it can't be that hard :(

I saw something saying that Starbucks was going to a light Frap mix that was gluten-free. I cannot find where I saw this. I didn't repost because I think it was a response to someone elses inquiry so I can't verify. Maybe you would like to email Starbucks. In the US, they don't want to say anything is gluten free but they seemed to say it had no gluten ingredients.

Edited to add: post a copy of the response, please.

OMG. I'm still sick almost 4 weeks later from a tiny crumb of crouton in my salad. I really hope your symptoms don't last long! That was some serious glutening!

I would definitely find a guilty pleasure that is gluten free for emergencies next time! :) There are some awesome donut recipes out there that are gluten-free.

I've been back on gluten for 5 weeks now and get my scope and biopsy two weeks today. I can't wait to go back gluten free and re-start the healing process. The fatigue, joint aches,bloating, gas, anxiety,stomach and bowel issues and the concern about long term damage - once I've had my scope you couldn't pay me to eat gluten!

I get different symptoms every Tim I consume or cc. This time from all that I have horrible constipation, increase of mucus(sinus issues) sleep problems, bloating and gas. I am seeing flashers in my line of vision. Yesterday I had a horrible burning/ gnawing at the top of my stomach and really bad reflux also.

I was cc on sat night at a restaurant and I lost feeling in my toes.

How come I react differently everytime I consume gluten?

I didn't get really sick this time.

nope, I can't say that there is anything on this entire planet that I would just have to eat, and then suffer the agonizing pain for days or weeks afterward. Nope Nope Nope.
