I Lose My $&!@*( Cool

Ok.  Not Zen today.  Not Zen at all.

Today I went to the allergist in a desperate attempt to figure out what is going on with all of the horrible food responses I’ve been having lately.  I have had to miss a half day of school because something I ate for lunch sent me to the doctor ASAP.

So I’m finally going and hoping for some answers.

My answers suck.

The appointment basically went like this:

“Oh, you tested negative for shellfish and fish!  You’re still deathly allergic you just haven’t had them recently enough for antibodies to still be in your blood stream.”

“Oh, you had a reaction to what? Do you have seasonal allergies too? Oh, ok, well  because of food-inhalant cross-reactivity you can NO LONGER EAT:

  • Kiwi
  • Melons
  • Tomatoes
  • Watermelon
  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Wheat
  • Corn
  • Milk
  • Bananas
  • Cucumber
  • Lettuce

WHAT?!?!?!? ARE YOU %(#&% KIDDING ME!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!  DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH MILK, CORN AND WHEAT ARE IN?  WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO EAT?  I’m going to cry and go to bed.  Bad assess don’t whine and it’s not sexy but today…I’m having a pity party.


  1. I want to cry for you. That's worse than the diet I did with Bella. I suppose one positive, you still have soy and that opens up some possibilities... But more so, is it just milk or all dairy? Same with wheat. Is it anything with wheat or things that are primarily wheat?

  2. Ugh, I don't even know. The doctor was not nice. He was extremely condecending to the point that Doc went into a "this is what's wrong with medicine" speach in the car. I actually didn't even get the list until the doctor had already left.

  3. Ok so Darla had to deal with some of this should call her and talk to her about this. Not to mention Josh saw an allergy specialist too. They also gave him a long list of things that they said he's allergic to. Including shrimp....which he ate a ton of in corpus. Talk to Darla...I promise she will make you feel better about it!!

  4. I'm really sorry girl, but to piggy-back on Bethany, definately talk to Darla! Maybe this will open doors to all sorts of new and exotic foods and fruits that you have never tried...
