I discussed in the #21 thing how touching certain items sends these uncomfortable shivers throughout my body.
But it's not just through touching - that spine-tingling, hair raising reaction also happens when I eat certain foods. And unfortunately for me, it covers just about every vegetable I like!
Here's the current list of foods that are on my no-no list:
- Bell peppers
- Green Beans
- Snap Peas
As I eat these foods, you can actually see the hair standing up on my arms!
I feel compelled to set an example of eating my vegetables for my children, so even when they are served at home, I labor through eating them. Plus, I really enjoy these veggies and don't want to miss out on their health benefits.
As I do my best to eat my veggies, the wincing and expressions on my face as I try to ward off the impending chill can be theatrical to watch.
Life with MS: It's a constant game of adjust, adapt and abide. As a result, there is rarely a dull moment. Even when you are just trying to enjoy a pickle with your sandwich.
And that is the #26 Thing You Might Not Know About (My) MS.
