But alas they are not. I broke out yesterday with a case of the hives after lunch. I am normally very good about what I am eating and today and the balance of yesterday I racked my brain, as to what I could have eaten that would have given me the hives and the acute headache.
I have no answer. I had eaten seared tuna, some homemade pickles (made by me....), some fruit and a wheat free cookie. Yeah..... so what oh what caused the scary food reaction????
Before we had isolated what was causing my mystery maladies, I had had an outbreak similar to yesterdays a few times before..... and this one was mild, it only lasted a few hours and by dinner time and our dinner party, I was right as rain. It is scary however..... for it to come out of nowhere like that. (I turned beat red all over, as if I had had too much sun. Get a hot feeling on my skin, followed by feeling really cold. Then as fast as it happened - it went away.)
At least H was home. It is most scary to have a reaction like that and be all alone. Not a good feeling. At all.
So now I am back to being super extra vigilant and calling my doctor....... because seriously, I check and double check and when in doubt - I do not eat!
Here's to fruits, veggies, brown rice and chicken. I guess I cannot go wrong with that menu alone!
