HI ALL!!! This is my first time on the site, and I think im in heaven. FINALLY a place I can talk about my allergies without some doofus saying "SO YOUVE NEVER HAD A REESES?" so quick intro, im 24 and had my first reaction before 5 yrs old, i was with family and got a dollar for candy machine, got PLAIN m&m's and puked all over the place, since then ive never had to use my epi-pen but have had a few stupid incidents, most recently about a year or two ago came home, very inebriated, and started woofing down ice cream, that had peanut butter cups, i was hungry and all we had was ice cream, it didnt say they were peanut butter cups and i swallowed a few whole before i bit into one and noticed, first thing i did was puke it all out, felt like my insides wanted to come outside, worst night in a while. I found this site today because of a first for me, i ate a fresh cherry and felt the itchy tingly feeling in my throat, the other day a fruit salad did the same thing. i got pretty depressed about it because theres alot of foods that make me feel sick, dont rememeber ever getting the tests but from my studies i thinnk my allergies are mainly peanuts, legumes, preservatives, and now recently alot of soy products and these fresh fruits. WHATS LEFT FOR ME TO EAT!!! Ive always been a meat and potatoes irishman but i started expanding and thinking healthier but stuff like this really sets me back. dont have any questions ill explore the site as the days go on, just letting you all know your not alone after discovering this site did for me.
