But, if you think that way, hon, you're going to find yourself eating nothing. That's not good.
Let me explain something. Maybe it will help.
On this site, for every single product that is posted about ---there will be SOMEONE who will say "I got sick!!" from it. And then, panic ensues.
Why? Because people may have different food intolerances or another reason why it affected that ONE person. I have a weird histamine intolerance going on right now. I cannot tolerate too many foods with high histamine levels--which means no eggs, cultured or fermented foods, soybean, berries, citrus, fish, Wine (dammit! ) and chocolate! arrgh! I have burning skin, swollen eyelids, neuro problems, musculoskeletal pain, D, etc. that flared up in the past few weeks.
I KNOW it is not gluten I am ingesting causing this.
So, if I "react" to Glutino crackers or mayonnaise, for example, and come on here and declare "Glutino crackers and Hellman's mayo made me sick!" does that mean it has gluten in it ? nope! Does it mean it is not safe? Nope. Does it mean I am so super sensitive I cannot eat packaged foods? Nope.
It just means I can't eat it right now. (I was accidentally CCed nearly 8 weeks ago --because I AM a sensitive celiac-- and my system is still jacked up and inflamed.
I just discussed this with my doctor yesterday. He told me it will pass and to give it time.
It's not always about gluten CC in products that is the reason why we feel sick. Honest.
And so, you may be intolerant of many foods --as I seem to be right now, but it does not mean you cannot enjoy some packaged foods from dedicated facilities and it does not mean that just because one person became ill from one product, that you will, too.
I hope this puts your mind at ease a little?
Thank you for this, it does make me feel better. I ate just plain rice a couple of hours ago and still feel really sick, I think I just have to take it easy, it seems like when I get sick I just can't eat things for a while and it sucks. omg yeah that sucks, blah. I get SUPER bad joint pain too, mostly in my hips, it makes me feel like i'm 80 years old. It seems like there are other things I am having reactions to and can't pinpoint what they are. I'm wondering if I should cut out allll dairy and soy, I haven't cut out soy before and never really paid attention. idk. it sucks it's so up and down brown rice noodles seem to make me nauseas, it seems like only quinoa pasta sits perfectly with me, everything else makes me feel kind of sick. I sometimes wonder if I'm developing a problem with rice? ughh
