I recently discovered a severe allergic reaction to raw tomato.
Not severe as in OH MY GOD I CAN'T BREATHE I HAVE HIVES AAHHH GOOD THE ITCHHIIIIING. Severe as in, Jesus H Christ get me a gallon of water and a bathtub of ice, I'm burning up and my stomach is doing the tango with my intestines!!
Severe gastrointestinal distress that lasts for over 12 hours. Gurgling stomach/GI tract, alternating constipation with D, and a massive headache as a result of dehydration and not eating out of fear I had a stomach flu. Ate chicken nuggets from the store just fine though.
All of this because of a roasted tomato in my sandwich. ;__;
I looked it up and apparently, there's a small group of people that can eat tomato products - ketchup, sauces, soups, pasta stuff - but can NOT eat a tomato regardless of freshness, whether it is cooked (fried, mashed, roasted), and so forth. I fall into this category because I used to pretty much drink ketchup (used a lot when I was a kid), I love pasta with a passion and I freaking love tomato soup.
So, yay, I have the world's weirdest allergic reaction to tomatoes.
High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life. Fight fear for the selfish pain;
It was worth it every time. Hold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this ends.
A clock ticks 'til it breaks your glass and I drown in you again,
'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need. Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why!
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy? If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
