AHHHHHHHHHH IT ITCHES!!!

And I can't scratch it unless I want my gums to bleed! D:

I have Oral Allergy Syndrome which means I'm allergic to certain fresh fruits and raw vegetables. Such as:



-Apples
-Pears
-Grapes
-Carrots
-Bananas
-I think Pineapple

and that's all that I can think of at the moment. But I still eat them :D My reaction to each of them is very different, so the ones I eat all the time (grapes) only cause my lips to slightly swell- I'll never have to buy a lip plumper again! But APPLES I DETEST! They cause my throat and gum to itch and if it touches my lips, that'll swell too. (You can probably guess which fruit I ate now)
The reactions generally do not last so long, just a couple of minutes because the protein I'm allergic to is quickly broken down by saliva. I don't notice the itching anymore and it gives me the greatest excuse to not eat my fruits and veggies (besides broccoli, I love broccoli! I know, I'm not a normal kid >.>)

See! In the minutes it took me to write this post, it's gone now :D
Oooh look, carrots! :DDDD


P.s This puts a serious pothole in my journey back to (semi)vegetarianism.

I love veggies always have. I'm a semi veggie too except meat is good, well some times. i feel like denying it is like punishing myself and nobody puts baby in the corner!

P.S. I'm semi allergic to cantaloupe..which we discovered yesterday. FUN!

OMG, so starting sophomore year of high school I started becoming allergic to raw carrots...then I noticed it went on to raw pears, then some raw apples (organic ones work alright for me) and other things I can't remember...my mom didn't believe it because I've never been allergic to anything in my life. SO IT'S A REAL CONDITION??? lol...yikes. I thought I was the only one.

Dear oh dear, I'm terribly sorry for you! I never know about this medical condition. However, it does make a good excuse to not eat your veg & fruits.

Mariiam: It tastes soo good with ranch :D

PerplxinTexan: LOL, it's the goat meat which always puts me off track and the lasagna... and a whole bunch of other things. Ehh cantalope, never liked that or papayas D:

A'qilah: No not mangos thankfully! I love mangos! <3 Too much

Sarah Alaoui: I kinda diagnosed myself and apparently my mother also has this. SO NO YOU'RE NOT ALONE! :D

Hajar: Saying medical condition makes it sound way more scary than it really is, lol and yes, yes it does B) Too bad I love veggies.
