I just had my first taste of apple in almost 3 years and it was happiness fucking personified in a paper-thin sliver of fruit. Technically I’m only supposed to eat it cooked—which is what I’m doing, I’m cooking the apple down—but I was weak and helped myself to a piece and nearly started crying from how good it tasted.
Fingers crossed for me, fam. It’d be truly wonderful if I was able to get a second fruit back into my diet without needing to stab myself in the thigh with my epi-pen or take a trip to the ER in the wee-woo-wagon.

So. My name is Basil. I am a genetic nightmare and have a plethora of chronic illnesses, one of which causes me to be allergic to life and frequently develop new allergies.
Guys.
I'm officially allergic to myself.

Playing chronic illness bingo like am I hypomanic? Do I just have energy for the first time because now I’m on antihistamines? Are the antihistamines causing hypomania? Am I just in a good mood? Have I finally dealt with my chronic fatigue? Do I just have enough energy that my hyperactivity from ADHD is kicking in? What’s going on????

Folks with thermoregulation problems, how do you help keep yourself cool?
This is the first time my conditions have worsened this much because of heat.....and we're in the middle of a heat wave.

When I was a child I was once diagnosed by an allergist as "allergic to histamine." My parents didn't know what that meant and neither did anyone else. Whenever my parents would say "She's allergic to histamine," to someone asking about my allergies, the person asking would respond in confusion or assume my parents were mistaken. So my parents assumed that they may've misunderstood the allergist. After all it's impossible to be "allergic" to histamine...right?
Now let's flash forwards to the present day. There's a little boy — For legal reasons I am not allowed to say how I know this child, or give certain details about him — and he is also "allergic to histamine." God, I wonder. Do he and his parents go through the same shit my parents and I went through? Do they deal with people, including doctors and pharmacists, telling them that his allergy doesn't exist? That someone must've made a mistake?
Last night my allergies were acting up again, so I decided to look up "histamine allergy" and — I cannot express in words how angry I feel. Not only is my condition real (though from what I've read, it's not actually an allergy), it's considered incurable and potentially deadly???? And to make it worse despite it being considered a "common" condition, it's so poorly understood that it's unknown to the general public and even to most medical professionals????
Is it any wonder that many chronically ill people don't trust doctors? Some of us are quite literally living with conditions that our doctors may have potentially never fucking heard of

Food intolerance is spending your entire lunch break in the toilets, praying that your guts will heal and swearing that you won't hurt them with shitty food anymore. Even though said shitty food is usually considered healthy.

There may be no treatments to help my illness but if that's the case I still need to stay alive. I will adapt to my new normal.

So I was trying to figure out for a looong time why coffee makes me sick. It’s not caffeine, because I can drink both regular and decaf, and it’s seemingly random when it makes me sick. It makes my breathing kinda labored but my heart rate isn’t high. And soda and tea don’t do the same thing.
Histamine! Apparently there’s a such thing as histamine intolerance, and a lot of the foods on the list do make me feel funny randomly. Like I put spinach in my smoothies and I’m usually fine, but sometimes it makes my tongue tingle and I feel worse.
Also after taking Benadryl I felt much better, yesterday.
So I need to make coffee a rare treat I guess.

I’ve been able to eat a tablespoon of scrambled egg with my breakfast two days in a row now, without breaking out in hives or dealing with any worsening gastric issues. Which probably doesn’t sound like much, but as someone with histamine intolerance (egg whites are high in histamine) this is a huge and exciting development!
I’ve been able to eat eggs for a while now, though only in cornbread or in the cookies ETD makes. So this is the first time in over three years I’ve had them separate as part of a meal. I’m not overly sure I like them? I’ve never really been a fan of eggy tasting things by themselves, but they’re so densely packed in nutrients and excellent for ADHD brain power* that I’m willing to tolerate it. I’m not going to eat them every day, cause that’s how histamine intolerance gets worse, but if I can have them 3-4 of times a week? Fabby. I’ll take what I can get.
Also hi to any vegan friends who might feel compelled to offer substitutes, as is so often the case when I make posts like this. Thank you for thinking of me, but I cannot eat any vegan substitutes. Yes I’ve tried. The majority of them are incredibly high in histamine and set my MCAS off, resulting in anaphylaxis. Thank you for respecting my right to live and eat by not sending me messages about what I should be eating instead. Cheers.
(*protein, b6 and b9, zinc and iron are all necessary for the production and stability of dopamine, which ADHD brains are chronically deficient in)

Today I learned that just because I can have plain black tea cold, I absolutely can not have it warm.
It took two EpiPens and multiple IV infusions to stop me from passing out.
MCAS is wild y'all.
