Everything started off fine. Exbf brought peanut butter from home because I am out. He knew ahead of time I had one loaf of whole grain wheat bread for a pb sandwich and a bunch of grapes. I had a banana with Miracle Whip and some of his pb and the last cup of milk.
Remember? Friday was the day of my birthday dinner. I had already postponed it once. Friday, I was doing well, no allergy problems.
Walmart had cantaloupes on sale for $.98, so I ran in and picked up a ripe one. As I went by the sample lady, I received a 1" piece of some sort of turkey sausage. My instinct was to spit it out ANYWHERE. No, I chewed and swallowed. I would have had to spit it into my hand! I chewed and swallowed, yessiree.
As soon as we returned home, I spent the next solid hour in the bathroom. This went on for four hours. In the end, I decided I could not eat out and enjoy it. I might have to spend the whole time in the bathroom.
He ate a cheese sandwich and a large slice of cantaloupe for dinner. I went to bed as soon as he left, slept until he called at 6 pm, saying he was home and I slept until 2:30 am Saturday morning.
I cut and peeled and deseeded the cantaloupe for him and put it in a plastic bag. The last time I sent an unripe cantaloupe home with him, he dropped it, ripened, on the carpet. It split open and splashed all over the place, soaking the carpet before he could get it up. So, he was not volunteering he would just take it and prepare it himself.
He took home his peanut butter, the loaf of whole wheat I cannot eat, and the bag of cantaloupe.
It's 4 am, and I must get up and wash the clothes I wore out yesterday. I cleaned the floor and commode yesterday. My stomach feels as though I never want to eat again.
Even though allergies appear to rule my life, health, and happiness/comfort, I need to listen to the voice in my head that says, "Spit it out." That is what infants and little kids do.
It was only one bite! But, the adult me said, "Don't spit it out."
Do you ever have violent reactions to food because of allergies? Do you ever have the urge to spit out food that really does taste okay?
