The Irony

That will be a personal message today.
I didn't really know if I talked about this here. Probably not.
Since I was born, I was suffering for plenty of little disease.  I got everything from all the diseases ending in -itis (sinusitis, bronchitis) to more severe one. I had a hard case of mononucleosis, epilepsy ... I fainted sometimes. Anyways, it would be easier to say what I didn't have than saying what I had.

My parents tried everything during the first years of my life. We went to every doctors, no one could tell what was the problem with me.

As an adult, I also tried to get better 'cause my symptoms would go heavier each years. By the time I was 25 I was told my bones have aged to the point they were 45 years old ... That I was having more and more arthritis and that constant pain that would later be named Fibromyalgia.

In 2009, my system crashed down. I was in a deep depression, the pain was constant and I couldn't take it anymore.

We decided to try another lifestyle (homesteading, or wannabe homesteading) I started to feel better everyday.

Though, even if my situation was improving, I was still having major episodes of my disease. I would sometimes not be able to do things for days.

I tried again to find something to help me out, I found nothing.

One day, I found that clinic with the help of a friend, and ... I've decided to go. The approach is trying to find food allergies who could bring all my symptoms.

I received my results last Thursday.

I am allergic to eggs.

...... The irony.

(I am also having a yeast infection in the digestive system, some pseudomonas, and I am allergic to a bunch of other things. But, I'll get better! At LAST !!!! after 33 years !)


  1. Allergic to eggs? Wow, I'm sorry! Does that mean you can't eat any eggs even IN stuff (like cakes, pasta, etc?)

    1. Yup, even in the stuff. It's just so "funny", the minute I start a lil egg business. I discover I am allergic to them.
