Yepper, that's what I feel like, and probably look like too.
First, "the boy" is home for spring break. After that ride to go get him, I decided to make him his fav food... TACO'S!!!
Being the lazy butt ass I am, I figured I would buy the prepackaged shredded cheese to use on them. BOY, WAS THAT A MISTAKE!!!!
Now I can't eat the TACO part of the taco. Can't eat corn... no matter how cute they form it into shells..... but I could eat the meat.
So I made myself Taco's without the shell, and of course heaped a ton of that tasty shredded cheese on my meat! Hot, yummmmmmy!
On till a few hours later my neck /outside and inside/ started swelling!!! Popping benadrylls... and having no clue why I'm so sick.... same thing next day, except add the "runs" to the swelling!!!
I actually started "TALKING" to my wall paper in the bathroom..... I was seeing it for so long and so often...... and in between I was laying on the sofa, moaning and bitching, and feeling like shit!!
THEN... I decided to try to ferret out what was causing the allergic reaction....couldn't find a damn thing that I could have eaten that would make me sick
Until I checked out the "shredded Cheddar Cheese" package!!!!
CORN STARCH!!!!! AND POTATO STARCH!!!!! WTF!!!!!!
I guess they use it to keep the cheese from sticking.... and also to try to MURDER ME!!!!!
Now, I'm slowly recovering, though I still feel like shit... and it may take a few more days for that crap to leave my system!!!
And to top it all off, I feel like an idiot for not checking the ingredients... but cheese... why would I check for ingredients in cheese????
