I’m cuddling in bed with my laptop catching up on last weekend’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” and I feel like my throat is swelling up. And then I remember I have very strange food allergies! I guess eating that slice of watermelon wasn’t such a great idea after all… Not only did my throat swell up, but I know my lips will be swollen and itchy very soon…
Being how paranoid and obsessive compulsive I get, I googled my weird allergic reactions to fruit years ago and diagnosed myself with oral allergy food syndrome. My allergies only act up when I eat fruits like kiwi, mango, bananas, all those fruits that end with melon, and almonds. Don’t get me wrong, I can still drink a smoothie every now and then but my body just hates me when I’m eating it with my mouth. I know…where else would I eat it, right? Lol. Thank goodness I’m not allergic to all nuts because this girl loves her peanut butter! I call it food, comfort food to be exact! Oh, and I love almond butter! Sadly I can’t eat it or else…well I’ll spare you the details!
Are any of you guys allergic to fruit or nuts? Or have any strange food allergies? Do share! And if you are unsure, I can google a diagnosis for you :)
