Echoing/agreeing with u/emiliegrey. Some random points. Allergy testing isn't accurate. Your elimination diet is the best way to figure things out but you have to reintroduce foods slowly. 5 days between foods that way you aren't "filling your bucket" so to speak. Also I always have to mention this, all those foods you mentioned have corn so if you have a corn allergy, bad news. Yes the rice and bananas even. (And water though that's on the extreme end of things).

Never seen the "exception", just tons and tons of people waste their time on someone who never commits to them.

I guess I'm old, I don't know what rolling means. Anyways, you don't have to stay with someone. You feel as though his views on things is not true and don't want to see his side. It's an issue he hates your friends, accuses you of cheating, and you view him as a privileged white guy that is lying (probably because he was on drugs and may have a warped view. Possibly).

Surprise your spouse by having their car professionally detailed so that it looks like new.

I would love this actually. My birthday is next week and I'm considering gifting it to myself.

I would rent a cabin in one of our nearby state parks for the weekend - they go for about $60-$75 a night.

Thank you for solving my "what do I do when I'm homeless" problem.

Crosswired2 73 points

$60 a night is about $1800 a month. Am I missing sarcasm or...?

Well it's easy to rule out something like corn. I eat corn and I don't have a reaction.

I have been able to consistently recreate the reaction my simply having a glass of milk or cheese. Oh or ice cream. Oh or non-dairy creamer.

Crosswired2 1 point

Eating whole corn is different than having, say cornstarch or citric acid. Whole corn doesn't really break down in your body much (think about seeing whole corn in poop) so someone with a corn allergy or intolerance might not have as bad reaction to other forms of corn. Also you might not have a typical reaction or it may be more delayed. For instance if I have corn syrup, it's an immediate anaphylactic situation, feel as though I'm going to die, swelling in mouth, issues breathing. If I have something with citric acid, takes about 30 minutes (still not too long) and it's a headache and muscle weakness. Other forms I get vertigo, joint pain, fatigue, migraines, wheezing, etc and sometimes it takes 3-4 hours to react. It used to take more than 12 hours. But anyways, like I said it doesn't mean you have a casein allergy but best you can do for now since that's your top suspect is eliminate for a while and then reintro. You can find some casein-free dairy to trial once you have cleared up.

Im_K1dding 1 point

Your story is just so unfortunate, I am really sorry, clearly my "reaction" is no where near what you are going through. Thanks for the suggestions. I will check out casein-free dairy, I didn't know it was a thing.

I keep experimenting and I bought some hot chocolate and after I had some and had a reaction I went through the ingredients and count that it had Sodium caseinate. I am sure if I go to an allergist they should be able to test me specifically for casein. It also does not mean that it's the only thing I am having a reaction to.

You are on the right track. Keep in mind that allergy testing is not very accurate so listen to your body, read labels and keep track. It's the best way to figure things out. Good luck!

This may sound stupid to people without dogs or without stupid dogs, but turns out it's actually an issue. My dog has a crate that's left open for her to use as she likes. Once she was going in and snagged her collar on the latch. She freaked out, pulled so hard against it she twisted the metal crate frame and eventually managed to slipped her collar. She still wears her collar 24/7 but she doesn't like to use her crate as much. Shell run in and out of it crouched down like she's avoiding something trying to grab her :/

This also happened after she managed to get her toe stuck in the crate so I'm sure she's convinced it's evil. I had two other dogs with the same crates, one for 13 years and the other still with me at 15, and neither one of them ever had an issue with an inanimate metal box. This dog... Well at least she's cute

Dogs aren't suppose to be collared when they are inside, mostly for this reason. Get a place to keep the collar that's near the door.

Disig 34 points

I don’t think there’s any “not supposed to” rule. Just pay attention to your dog and if they can’t handle the collar then sure, leave it off.

Crosswired2 0 points

Dogs aren't supposed to be collared when inside for the reason that if the owner isn't around, a collar can get stuck on something and harm or kill the dog. So there's no way to pay attention to your dog when you aren't home and they are collared, that's my point.

Here's the rule: if someone you don't know approaches you with some kind of deal, it is always a scam. Always. Every time.

Crosswired2 1 point

If anyone ever approaches me to sell something I tell them I don't have money. I've never had any persist.

Is it just me or does it seem weird to be using the other person's name so much when talking to them? Texting especially, since you don't need to use their name to get their attention. I don't think I ever use people's names when I text.

Crosswired2 1 point

I was thinking the same thing. I might say a lot "hey babe - do you"... or whatever but never "hey [husband's name]".

i thought aspartame soda was safe?

Crosswired2 2 points

Ah see I personally wouldn't touch aspartame with a 10 foot pole so I didn't think about it. I don't see it listed as not safe as far as something someone with fructose intolerance can have but I don't know. I don't have the intolerance myself, a friend does so I'm not versed on everything.

why dont u touch aspartame

Crosswired2 3 points

I'm allergic to corn and it's made from corn, so it's a no but also if you google it, it's a bad fake sugar, not really good for anyone.

Mine is a Portuguese podengo and everyone always asks if she's part fox as well. We never tested, but I think she has some corgi too. It's the color schemes and the sharp muzzles.

The fact that one of her favorite pastimes is hunting birds adds to the confusion, I admit.

Crosswired2 1 point

Our "fox" pup definitely has a corgi butt and sausage-y body lol. I'd love to dna test him but... $$

Crosswired2 3 points

I have a swear he's not a fox dog also! We think he's corgi, yorkie, and...shrug.

I have a dog that looks JUST LIKE the one with the blue bandana in the front. We also live in Texas:

There are times that during high stress I react to almost everything I eat. You didn't say what you are allergic to, but I wonder if you have a handle on all your allergies. Blood testing isn't accurate. Are you keeping a food journal? Reading labels and thinking about cross containmentation?

Crosswired2 commented on a post in r/FoodAllergies

Yes this is not uncommon in the corn allergy group I belong to. We call it corn rage. I wouldn't call it blackout angry but it is very difficult to deal with. Now that I know what triggers it and know what that feeling is, I can somewhat control it. The crying and overly emotional is hard to contain but when I'm irrational angry I try to stay away from people and do constant self talk. Benadryl, Epsom salt baths, and activated charcoal might help.

One time my wife was asleep and I farted. She went "mmm-hmm" like she was agreeing with it. This happened several times. I'd fart, and if she was asleep, she'd agree with it. And, no, she doesn't agree with them when she's awake.

Crosswired2 31 points

My husband was sleeping (snoring away) and I farted. He said "hmm?". I tried to silently laugh and wait for him to go back asleep but but I laughed out loud a little and he said "what?" So I said "what?" And he said "You said bro?" I couldn't stop laughing for a while.

You don't teach a child that hitting is wrong by hitting them. There are so many studies about this, or just logic. Spankings, whooping, etc don't make a little shit less of a little shit. Period.

I'm a server at a theme park. I try to see every table as a family from Michigan. Dad, mom, two kids. They don't have a lot of money, so they drive to Florida. Overnight so that mom and dad can switch off driving while the kids sleep. No stopover other than pee breaks and fast food. They get a motel instead of a hotel, and when they go to the park, they get a one day, one park pass for each of them. They come in, get a soda and a churro, maybe a corn dog. Then they get to my restaurant and sit down.

Scrimping and saving, doing without souvenirs that the kids want, they have already spent over one thousand dollars to sit at my table. So I try to give every table a one thousand dollar dining experience. Does it work every day for every table? No. But do I do my damndest to make their experience memorable and amazing? You're god damn right I do. I'll dance with the kids. I have a pocket of my apron designated for toys for fussy babies that I sanitize after every one. I have a million jokes you've never heard and a bunch you have. I care only as much as I'm paid, and I'm paid by YOU.

I leave work smiling about the magic I spread and the parents that didn't have to worry about their kids because I took them on a walking tour and gave them 5 minutes to breathe. I think about my hungry babies (everyone is a hungry baby. You can be 95 years old and you're my hungry baby) and how I did everything I could to feed them and allow myself only the amount of time it takes from walking out of the door to when I get to my car to fret about the tables I didn't do great on. Because tomorrow is another day.

I know most people are more involved with what ride they're going on next than the server that's keeping their sodas refilled. That's how it should be. But know I love you guys and I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to dine with me. Especially if you have a baby. Double points if they have those chubby cheeks. Talking seriously to babies about the day is how I keep sane. Sorry for the giant wall of text. I just love my job and my guests and I appreciate you guys.

Edit: I'm reading through these responses and I am just... You are all so great. From now on whenever I'm having a hard day, at work or otherwise, I'm coming back here to read these responses and remind myself that what I do does make an impact. You are all wonderful. And the gold, my god. So much gold.

Edit 2: stop giving me gold. I really appreciate it but I have enough. I'm already jazzed to post about this on Twitter because my life is awesome like that. Use the money to tip an awesome server.

I went to Disney with my mom and daughter (so yes, i was an adult) and the guy checking bags at Magic Kingdom and called me Princess made my day. It was that small, stupid thing that was great (and yes, I'm guessing he calls almost everyone princess!). But just an employee noticing you is nice, not sure how to explain it. So thanks for what you do!

Yeah mine were pretty easy too. Except for The Lumineers, I couldn’t decide which one I wanted between Gun Song and Ho Hey but I went with Ho Hey because that’s always my go to happy song.

I also wanted a Twenty One Pilots song and an Eminem song but I couldn’t decided which one I wanted either.
