Oink oink


It took me a little while to realise that I had a pork allergy. I kept thinking that I had a touch of the flu, every few weeks with a general aching body and high temperatures. After I took DS to Melissa’s to celebrate him getting his learners I wondered what it was that I had been exposed to that made me sick but not him. After the roast pork I cooked and ate I was certain. I googled it and I am one of those incredibly rare people who are allergic to pork. Arachnoid acid builds up in the joints making them swollen and incredibly painful. When my ankles were affected I could only hobble around, a few toes were also afflicted, then my hands, wrists so painful I couldn’t lift a pot or pan to cook, my fingers too swollen to wear my wedding ring. The last straw was a very sore jaw, just on the left side, mind you, talk about random!

Things I will miss and take a moment to mourn the loss of:
Bacon, esp Eggs Benedict with bacon, bacon opesies and pork sausages at a braai, viennas, frankfurters, salami, country ham, gammon on Christmas day,  deluxe meaty pizza with pepperoni

Fabulous LO. I love the design of it and the journaling is great. I never knew anyone could have a pork allergy!
