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 :).

You're very fortunate if your reactions only last for 24 hours. Mine last a week at minimum, up to two weeks. And the last time I had a large amount of gluten on accident I ended up getting brochitus which turned into pnuemonia, requiring several pricey breathing treatments at Urgent Care, chest x-rays, consult with a pulmonologist, etc. I was sick for 3 months because of a restaruant mistake. Even if I were in need of the money and decided to do this I would require that they also sign a contract that they are responsible for paying any medical bills incurred. But even then I just can't see giving up my dignity (in allowing them to film my suffering) for some money.

Sure! It might not be fun for a few weeks but eventually it would pass.

Heck yeah. I'd enjoy my delicious pain au chocolat (that's what I'd eat for sure), earn enough to pay for any further schooling I want to pursue, and they'd get... a six or seven hour video of me passed out, probably snoring.

Sounds fair to me!! :D

I would love to have a 100k at the moment but I am so terrified of developing some other autoimmune condition or disease that I'm not sure i could get myself to do it. Although, I wouldn't recommend people do it maybe it would be a good PSA or something to show the rest of the world what gluten does to us. I know most of my family members use to not take my celiacs very seriously until they saw me get sick from some cross contamination. After that little incident they took it a lot more seriously. So maybe it would get good to get a gluten reaction on film for everyone else to see.

nope, not for a million dollars. No amount of money is worth the pain.

A friend of mine has made the following statement:

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

I understand that there are some very sick people in the world................ but surely no one is so sick as to want to pay for the pleasure of seeing someone violently ill from eating gluten........surely there are other ways these people can be entertained.
