Six Word Saturday

It's Six Word Saturday again...and my six words are:


I have multiple food allergies and food sensitivities, and I am discovering more issues all the time. I carry an Epi-pen in case it goes into a shock situation. If I catch it when it first starts and take some Benadryl I can sometimes calm it down and get over it. Well last night I had to send my hubby to the store after midnight to get me some Liquid Benadryl. I was so miserable. My stomach was all bloated and hard and hurting. I laid down and put the wheat heat on my tummy and drank some Natural Calm Magnesium. After taking the Benadryl, it eventually lessened.
Not Fun!

Today I am feeling better, but not wanting to eat, so that it won't return.

My list of things I am sensitive to continues to grow. Are any of you like me? Or am I one of the few with these kinds of issues? I eat healthy, and a lot of it is organic...but not always. I think GMO foods (Genetically Modified) are becoming a problem, and causing allergies and illnesses. They say GM corn and soy crops and sugar, and canola along with some others are in so many processed products today. I am careful...but not perfect about reading labels...and I guess I am going to have to be even more strict. Yikes! My episode wasn't fun...but like my Momma always said..."I lived to tell about it!" (wink)

Have a good weekend!

And please visit my friend Megan's Blog

And read about the Infertility Fundraiser someone is doing for her!
It would be a blessing if you would read her blog and pray for her, and help if you can. Thanks!

Ouchy!! I don't have any known allergies, but every now and then I'll eat something that totally does not agree with me and that is not fun at all! I hope you feel better today!

Jeanie said...

I hope you are feeling better....I don't have any food allergies and from your description I hope I don't develop any. Take good care of yourself.

Owwwwwyyyyyy! I'm not sure if I have food allergies but I have always had a difficult time with my stomach. Have you tried activia? No I am not really Jamie Lee Curtis. I have been a yogurt lover forever and I have been a Yoplait lover on top of that. Well I got REALLY sick two weeks ago - so sick that two days ago was the first day I wasn't nauseous. I have been trying anything I can think of and I finally tasted Activia for the first time - - its really good! So- maybe it might help you....just a though

So sorry you've been hit so hard with those allergies. A number of family members have food allergies and need Gluten Free and Casein Free food. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Shrimp is the only allergy of which I'm aware, but I've had Irritable Bowel Syndrome for a long time. Now that I eat one Activia every morning for the past couple of years already, I've observed noticeable improvement. Those little probiotic bugs are so helpful!

You take care! Hugs!

I have an allergy to Lady GaGa. I can't help it; I was born this way. I think GaGa's genetically altered.

Seriously, sorry to hear you're struggling. Hang in there.

Sorry to hear about your discomfort. No allergies to food - only an allergy to morphine.

Hope you're feeling better soon

Grandma Becky said...

Food allergies are no fun. I have to be careful with wheat germ and bran. My daughter can't eat clams or shell fish. I find that yogurt with active cultures help as well as papaya enzymes, it's a natural digestive aid. Hope you are feeling better soon! Hugs and prayers!

Jenilee said...

oh! I hope you feel better soon! tummy problems are NO fun. I hope you figure it out soon and can eat again without any problems. praying!

Karen S. said...

May our immune systems get tougher and stronger.
