I am going to miss you. You have been a steady companion, we have met at least weekly (and often several times a day). I am sure I will miss your more indulgent pals vanilla ice-cream and sour cream as well. Still you, my dear cottage cheese, will be the one my heart will long for the most.
So there you have it. My allergy tests did not go as anticipated. I really did not even consider remotely the chance of reacting to milk at all, and it was the most violent reaction to boot. From now there will be no more rolling in the grass and no more eating dairy.
What will I do for protein now? What am I going to eat along my muesli? Rhubarb soup is just not the same without the small dollop of ice-cream. Ugh, even my go-to protein bar contains milk.. But then, I really would like to have less inflammation and eczema, not to mention trips to the ER, so I guess I just need to find new ways to meet my protein needs. At least I can still have soy and fish!
I am already slightly anxious about the next round of tests Friday. I hope not to react to tomatoes, carrots, celery or garlic, nuts, ..or anything else really. (Well, I would not mind if I reacted to bananas, yuck.)
Keeping my fingers crossed!
