My youngest daughter suffers from the most severe celiac disease of all of us (me and my other 2 daughters). After more than a year of seeing many different doctors (investigating things like refractive celiac, interstitial cystitis, and other things) this child finally found exactly 5 foods that she could safely eat and ate them for more than a year: white rice, apples, plain chicken (no spices whatsoever), cauliflower, and eggs. She lost about 40 lbs. but was finally able to start bringing one food at a time back into her diet. She can now eat a lot more but has many sensitivities still... things like certain nightshades, some oxalate foods, dairy, etc).
She went to an old favorite haunt in Portland, OR, on Christmas day/evening because they were having a karaoke contest and she'd won one there a few years ago. She had to sing 3 songs and the audience were the final judges.
She told me she had two (very mild) drinks and a soda and a water. She sang her first song and while she was waiting her turn to sing her second one, she made it to the bathroom to throw up all the liquid in her stomach. She sang her second song and while waiting for the third had to run to the bathroom and barf again. She sang the third song... won $100 and left to go home praying the whole way that she wouldn't throw up in the car. She made it home, threw up in the parking lot, and spent the better part of the night w/ a waste basket next to her bed. The ONLY thing she can think might have caused her sickness was the possibility of cross contamination with bar drink dispensers or maybe the bartenders having beer on their hands while they dispensed her drinks! Yikes!!
When she told me this whole story... she was laughing about her Christmas miracle... that she won $100 and didn't throw up in public!!
Ya gotta laugh!!
