Good morning and welcome to Monday. Thanks to everyone who voted for Past Promises at the Long and Short Book of the Week contest. It didn't win, but that's okay, I'm still thrilled it received a 5-book review.
This weekend was interesting to say the least. Friday evening, I developed a mysterious food allergy that caused me to break out in hives. Not pretty, but not life-threatening. No sign of breathing problems or anything like that.
Thankfully, hubby went out to the pharmacy and brought home something that cleared them up. The problem: I hadn't eaten anything I hadn't eaten a thousand times before. No new food that I could pinpoint and say "Ah ha!"
It happened twice on Saturday and again on Sunday after breakfast. Sunday lunch and supper was all fruit and vegetables, which I'm happy to report, are all okay. This morning, I'm trying multi-grain oatmeal. I want to see if it might be a wheat problem. If that's okay, I'll tackle dairy next.
I've been keeping a food diary of everything I've eaten, but there is absolutely nothing new. I have no idea where this new allergy came from. I guess I'll have to make a doctor's appointment at some point.
It's strange when your body suddenly rebels and does something totally unexpected. Thankfully, I feel totally healthy other than the hives. It could be worse.
I'll keep you updated on the search for the mystery food.
Have a great Monday!
