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.
I KNOW THE PIECES FIT, CAUSE I WATCHED THEM FALL AWAY, MILDEWED AND SMOLDERING.
FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERING, PURE INTENTION JUXTAPOSED WILL SET TWO LOVERS' SOULS IN MOTION.
DISINTEGRATING AS IT GOES, TESTING OUR COMMNICATION.
THE LIGHT THAT FUELED OUR FIRE THEN HAS BURNED A HOLE BETWEEN US SO WE CANNOT SEE TO REACH AN END...
