No allergies thank goodness - but I have some foods that don't agree with me so I avoid them, like raw cucumbers, fried eggs, and watermelon. Other foods I avoid because I can and not for any health reason - animal organ meat of any kind (offal, which is awful). I would probably get hives if I did, so maybe I am allergic?

Dairy and most frozen desserts are my enemies, along with bananas.

I'm allergic to Mangos. Growing up in Florida they are everywhere and I would climb them as a child and get rashes all over my body.. We had a poisonous oak in our yard and my mother figured it was that and I wasn't allowed on it along with poinson ivy I was always in rashes.. Years later in high school I was at a friends yard and I walked past it and brushed on the fruits.. I broke out in rashes everywhere, big lumps.. I cannot eat it, touch it or touch the trees. Sometimes people just walking within a couple feet of the trees will break out because it has some kind of pollen or whatever that is airborne. I have to avoid it at the grocery store and can't eat any fruit surrounding the mangos

Default Mangos

If I touch a mango, but tongue swells and I get a raised rash all over. Difficulty in breathing when your tongue is as big as a cows. When I shop in grocery store, I steer clear of them and make sure not to even stand and pick fruit next to it.

When I worked in a restaurant years ago, I developed a bad allergy to lemon slices that I had to put on edge of tea glass. That one has improved over the years though.

Gluten (anything with wheat, barley, or rye), alcohol, and all forms of dairy are the worst. I have sensitivities to soy, artificial sweetener, sugar (yay for Stevia.. only "sweet" I can stomach), and cranberries but it's not full blown allergies.

So basically, my life sucks and I go into debt trying to feed myself. :P

I'm allergic to Taco Bell. It's the only place I know where I can still get gas for under $1.00.
