Maybe because my allergies are not life threatening I feel compelled to rebel - must stop that way of thinking, now!

It's hard ... but welcome to life in the fast lane.

Thanks everyone!

I only have one food allergy - shellfish. I am unable to rebel against my NO-NO list. Anaphylactic shock isn't worth the immediate gratification of a shrimp salad.

Dance with the flow of life.

I can understand the rebellion against the NO-NO list. I have been dealing with food allergies for close to 30 years now and they have changed over the years so it is tempting at times to try some of the foods, "just to see if maybe the allergy has changed" or at least that is the rationalization I try to use.

Sometimes it is just a frustration of feeling it isn't fair I can't eat it when everyone else seems to be able to. Of course the feeling sick afterward is always a good reminder of why I stay away from the foods but sometimes I just need that reminder of why I am staying away from the foods.

I don't have life threatening reactions so I just feel sick and get migraines for a few days but if I had a life threatening reaction to something, I wouldn't consider testing the food.

Hi Everyone. I've been dealing with food allergies for well over a year now but lately it seems my mind wants to rebel against what I call my NO-NO list.

Anyone else have this issue in the past or present? How the heck do you stay away?

Can't understand it and trying to wrap my head around the "why" part of it. I don't crave the foods and I certainly don't miss them or the side affects once felt by them.
