I never really liked that anyway.
Bread? Nah, I can take it or leave it. Corn? Who needs corn on the cob? Ice-cream? I can live without that! Prawns? Well, they are a lot of work to prepare.
Does any of this sound familiar? Yeah, they are lies that I tell myself too because it pains me too much to realize that many of my favourite foods now pain me a lot more to eat them than it does to go without them!

It was New Years Eve. I had eaten a tonne of baked goods and breads. I felt horrible. Like really, really bad! I was up all night in pain.
My son has type 1 diabetes. I had heard of coeliacs disease. I knew what gluten could do to a person, but that person couldn’t be me could it? Yes, it could.
Next was the shell fish that caused my lips and then my throat to go numb. There was the popcorn that required me to have a washroom close at hand. Finally there was ice cream that caused horrible cramping in my stomach. I worried that I would never be able to eat “real” food again!
