As I write this I am suffering the undesirable effects of indulging in one of my favorite snacks, the super delicious almond . Even though I know the outcome I continue to munch away and try to get as much enjoyment as possible before it all turns to ****e . Fortunately I have not had a life threating allergic reaction since I was a kid but it always produces a moderate level of discomfort and I was wondering do other folks out there have allergies they refuse to accept? I have found that if I toast the almond thoroughly it will not produce a reaction but I prefer them raw. Another one is peanut butter (almost died eating my first pb and j samwich) but I am not bothered by peanuts. If I even touch one of those disgusting mobile garbage filters of the waterways(all seafood) I break out in hives and my hands swell to the point my skin splits when I try to bend my fingers . Fried chicken also kicks my ass, I can't drive by a KFC whithout getting sick, and yet chicken prepared any other way is fine. My allergies seem to be constantly fluctuating with no rhyme or reason (all of a sudden avacodos bother me now ) so there is often no way to isolate and determine the cause of a reaction. So do yall have any quirky allergies and if so how do you combat them?
