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? ;)

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

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!!!

    • My question is, how long does it take for the anxiety to fade? My anxiety is out of this world. It's horrendous. I have health anxiety and it's real, and it's bad. I thought going gluten-free would help me and I think it's actually gotten worse. But I don't think that's from being gluten-free. I think having an AI disorder panicked me. I've been on the diet 6 months and it's going well for the most part, but like I said, the anxiety is no better. Does that just take a really long time?
    • Thank y'all for the info! His doc said he may not have celiac bc he doesn't look the part whatever that means I guess bc he's a big boy lol but he did the panel anyways And said he'll prob get false neg even if he has gluten issues . He also testing for b12 iron and his vit d, and inflammation. We already know his vit D is low he's been taking high amounts of D3 with magnesium for months now. Doc said could be possible MS but he had spinal tab a while back and physical test also nurve and muscle study and Nero said the results were perfect but he did have some white matter change in MRI but could be from head trauma he's had or high blood pressure or migraines . It's all too much to process sometimes. He's 26  But I would think bc his stomach issues have improved so much in the past weeks bc of going gluten free it makes me lean more towards gluten issues rather than MS wouldn't u think? 
    • Thanks  I didn't pay attention to how long ago this study came out and wasn't sure if anyone had any "recent" data or information. Plus, my retainer is a Hawley retainer and I think it's made of acrylic. I'm not sure that would even have gluten products in it. I'll keep wearing it.
    • My husband bought some McCormick's skillet sauce on Sunday and it says it's certified gluten free. We always use the gluten free seasoning and I've never had an issue. I've just noticed the last couple days that my tummy has been kinda funny and I can't really think of anything that I've eaten that would have caused it, so it may very well not be gluten. But I went to their website and checked out the ingredients and it lists worscestshire sauce as an ingredient. It also lists the ingredients in that and I don't see any malt - just distilled vinegar. But I haven't eaten worscestshire sauce since I was diagnosed because I thought it wasn't safe. But I trust McCormick and know they have a good reputation. Thoughts? Oh, and here's the link to the product.  https://www.mccormick.com/spices-and-flavors/cooking-sauces/skillet-sauces/fajita-skillet-sauce
    • First STAY on gluten til you are done testing, you need 12 weeks for blood test with it in your system and 2 weeks for hte follow up endoscope.  Second yes, if he has celiac then his intestines are damaged and he will not be getting all the nutrients his body needs, so even when off gluten you can have issues show up like this. These can be helped by supplementing I suggest a full B-vitamin regime, and magnesium myself, there are others he might be low in like iron, folate, potassium etc. You should probably see about having his levels checked and talking to a dietician about what me might need. I personally love this blend from liquid health called stress & energy and another one from them called neurological support that I take 1tbsp of each 3 times a day. Best part they are liquid so you just add them to tea, water, or juice. Another I might suggest is Doctors Best Magnesium or Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium Supplements. Doctors best is easier on the stomach while calm can cause gut issues and a laxative effect and it is suggest you start off with 1/4tsp doses and step it up from there to the full dose. I take 2-3 times the dose on this but we are all different in the levels we will need.
