This week is crazy for me. I have appointments every day but Monday. I am so tired. Yesterday I saw a sleep specialist and have to go back on the 23rd to spend the night so they can test me. I don’t know how that’s going to go because I have to sleep, but I haven’t been sleeping so that’s why I saw them. Poop. Today I saw an allergy specialist and found out I have Oral Allergy Syndrome. Which explains why I get gut wrenching pain when I eat some foods. So I have a list of things I shouldn’t eat:

  • Alder pollen: almonds, apples, celery, cherries, hazel nuts, peaches, pears, parsley, strawberry, raspberry
  • Birch pollen: almonds, apples, apricots, avocados, bananas, carrots, celery, cherries, chicory,  coriander, fennel, fig, hazel nuts, kiwifruit, nectarines, parsley, parsnips, peaches, pears, peppers,plums, potatoes, prunes, soy, strawberries, wheat; Potential: walnuts
  • Grass pollen: fig, melons, tomatoes, oranges, celery, peach 
  • Mugwort pollen : carrots, celery, coriander, fennel, parsley, peppers, sunflower
  • Ragweed pollen : banana, cantaloupe, cucumber, green pepper, paprika, sunflower seeds/oil, honeydew, watermelon, zucchini, echinacea, artichoke, dandelions, honey (if bees pollinate from wild flowers),hibiscus or chamomile tea
  • Possible cross-reactions (to any of the above): berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc), citrus (oranges, lemons, etc), grapes, mango, figs, peanut, pineapple, pomegranates, watermelon

Yeah that’s lovely. I also talked to him about Fumiko because she too is allergic to apples and pears and other various foods give her stomach aches. He told me it’s very likely she has the same thing going on. Ugh. Why life? Why? So I am to pull all these things from our diet and slowly add stuff back to see which things we react to. If we react to it then we don’t eat it. He said I may have issues with the whole damn list or just certain things. Lucky me, I can already cross a few things off that I know I can’t eat. This is going to be fun. Tomorrow I have a meeting at NARA to deal with my disability stuff. Woo. My body is protesting everything right now. My bones ache, my muscles burn and have shooting pains, my joints are stiff and hurt and the joints around my fingers and wrist are swollen. My brain is out to lunch. I had little and big dots all over my arms earlier from the allergy test. Dude some of those spots itched and burned like a mofo. It was all I could do not to scratch the crap out of them. d= But hey at least I have some answers. Now if only I could get answers on the rest of my body. *sigh*

Next week I have a doctors appointment, then a home visit that afternoon, then therapy the next day, then therapy for Sascha the day after that. So much for my poor body. At least our brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes and spinach and kale are okay. We just have to do more now. xd I’m so grateful my kids like vegetables and will eat them. And chia seeds they like those. Oh and hummus. Om nom nom. Tonight for dinner we shall have buffalo chicken and broccoli. I found a mild buffalo sauce and the kids are all over it. Fumiko wanted me to buy every bottle on the shelf. Thankfully there was only two. I must go now. My arms are beyond screaming at me right now and are threatening to protest me.



That’s all. Since I have nothing to post at this moment because I have photos to edit, and upload and edit and illustrations and labels to make, and reviews to write and swatches and and and. Halp. I shall leave you with a list of things I need to post! I’m sure I’ll forget some. But yeah.

I has a busy. Halp? Sascha goes home in the morning. It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. :( I wish we could have done more, gotten more for him. I only got him one book. But between my health, doctor, chiropractor and now acupuncture visits, not enough money, hospital visits, etc, things just didn’t go the way I wanted them to. That’s okay. Next year we shall hopefully have money saved up, hopefully my health will be better(oh please dear universe, please), hopefully my mom will be doing better, hopefully things will just be better. I already miss him and he’s not gone yet. Poop. I keep telling myself it’ll be okay, but I already want to cry. I need to gather up his clothes clean the dirty ones and pack up his suitcase. Homemade tacos and strawberry cupcakes with strawberry puree as topping for dinner. Sascha’s request. Bleh. I’m already teary-eyed just typing this. HALP. It’ll only be a year, it’ll only be a year, then he’ll be home for the summer again, then only one more year and he’ll be home. Boy I love him.
