One Week

Today is one week of going without the foods I am allergic to. No ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, french fries. No pizza, spaghetti, hot dogs with chili. No tacos, burritos, taco salads. No mashed potatoes, baked potatoes. No barbeque, neither cow nor pig. No small tomatoes to pop in my mouth. No spicy foods from Chinese restaurants and no sweet and sour either.

I’ve eaten nothing I am allergic to, not even a bite, in seven days.

So why do I still have aches and pains? And how long will it take before I know that the aches and pains are NOT related to allergy foods?

I remember my mom was told she had to go without for two years.

I don’t think she’s gone a week yet.
