Darn It!

I think (not totally sure) that all my dad's crawlers are Olivers. *shrug* Whatever floats his boat. He does that hunting things down in weird places thing too. Yeah, I don't do grass tall enough to hide snakes. Thankfully from 2000 miles away he can't try to drag me out into snake country any more. :D

 

And hey, at least with things like crawlers (too big) or guns (you'd have to be a complete MORON) you never have to worry about someone stealing your cool stuff. :lol:

I've been feeling better and gaining foods back. Last night I tried blueberries, my favorite fruit. These were USA blueberries from the grocery store. I washed them thoroughly, cut the big ones in half, then cooked them on the stovetop until they were juicy. I didn't add sugar or anything. Just ate them as is.

 

A few minutes later I had stomach pain. Within less than two hours I was in the bathroom, pooping blueberries. (Sorry.) This morning I have a new outbreak (minor) of psoriasis.

 

I have no idea why they give me so much trouble. I thought for a while I had salicylate sensitivity. But it doesn't seem to matter how much broccoli or sweet potatoes I eat, and they are very high in sals. I mean, some days I eat two sweet potatoes and a TON of broccoli with no problem. I know sals are cumulative so I had backed off on these two things to "make room" for the blueberries. Didn't make any difference.

 

Besides, the sals problem first surfaced with asperin, and I didn't get stomach distress or D from it, just psoriasis.

 

I guess I'm not looking for an answer. Just reporting that blueberries don't work for me. Maybe this will help some of the folks here who have reactions to foods that shouldn't by rights bother them. I guess even after over two years, some of us react to foods for no known reason.

I've found that i've developed several fruit sensitivities since going Gluten-Free. My GI thinks it has to do with the fructose...my small intestines can't tolerate it any more. (fructose intolerance). A few slices of watermelon or a handful of grapes and I'm done for.

You know, maybe that is the problem. I'm not a big fruit fan so I don't really eat it. Blueberries are the only ones I really like. Since I went gluten-free I haven't eaten any fruit except bananas and they're not really very sweet.
