That Entirely Random Allergy

1 1


So a while ago, (Sometime between the last time I was active and now) I discovered I've got a VERY random allergy/intolerance. Since I've not actually had a doc say anything about it because I keep forgetting to bring it up, we'll just call it a 'problem'...


I don't have very many 'problems' that make my throat close up... But there is one problem that does. It gives me cracked lips (in the corners) and my throat becomes very swollen. Swallowing? Forget it. So what is it? Randomly, its Rosemary. Yeah, the herb. Don't ask me why, but its true. I suppose it could be worse... It could be something like, oh I dunno pepper. Oh wait, I can't have a lot of that anymore with my esophagitis anyway... So better example... uh... salt?


But seriously... Try finding Italian food without rosemary! (In fact, pretty certain my mother puts it in her spaghetti sauce... And she makes spaghetti almost every time our family gets together since its easy to make and easy to make in large quantities...)


Okay, just had to get that out, because I crave those multigrain gluten free crackers, and my favorite flavor? THe one with Rosemary. (Which I actually have double reason not to eat now since they contain Milk in the flavoring)
