Disastrous Experimentations!

Those of you who have been following my blog know that I have become stronger and am able to eat food with salicylate here and there.

My latest experiments have been organic grapes and ginger.

A bit more than adventurous, I know.

But I have to keep on pushing myself to overcome this.

Sadly, not this round.

Both experiments ended in disasters.

Migraines from Hades have been my constant companion. And waking up in excruciating pain is no joke. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. And migraines caused by food sensitivity have been a very rare affair.

Well, I am currently paying a very heavy price for experimenting.

Hubby is on emergency leave today as I am in no shape to drive. Yesterday was bad as my chest even felt tight.

It's back to 'salicylate-free' diet for God-knows-how-long!

But I'll be back for sure.

Grapes! Yum-yum. Worth every bite!

    Worth every bite!! HAHAHA You are so funny! Risking death for grapes. Be careful!! I'm curious - how many did you eat?

    I've been toying with the idea of cheating. I'm fantasizing about pie or something equally as deadly.

    1. Each time I washed some for Joel, I'll pop few. Wash, pop a few. Wash some more, pop a few. Imagine how much went into my system. That's why I'm still suffering right now.
