Dear my Beloved Dairy and Wheat,
I loved you from the moment I met you. I thought you loved me too, but the way you treat me is no way to treat someone you love. Throughout the years you’ve hurt me over and over again. When I was a child you gave me hives, stomach issues, seasonal allergies and chronic sinus infections. I always felt tired, full of snot, bloated and my joints ached all the time. Even with all that torment you caused me I kept coming back for your sweet lovin because I thought, “It might be different this time.”
I’ve broken up with you many times and when I did, I felt great! I pretended I didn’t like you at all and it worked. All my issues went away almost overnight and I thought I had it under control. Until it didn’t and I found myself sitting on the floor in front of the refrigerator eating a pound of pepper jack. Not only did my stomach feel like I ate crazy glue, but after that day I experienced my first migraine. Another time after giving up wheat for a month I accidentally ate something with gravy in it and had hives for three full days.
I have gotten at least 1,000,000 clear messages to kick you out of my life, but I keep on ignoring them because you really are that damn good.
Even though you are mouth watering delicious, today in this moment I’m choosing to not let you in my body.
And don’t feel sad. It’s not you, it’s me. We aren’t a good match and that’s ok. There are plenty of more fish who can digest you with ease in the sea. I’ll always remember our good times fondly and I may even creepily stare at you at parties and in grocery stores from time to time.
I’ll miss you more than you’ll ever know, but I hold the power now. Have an amazing life. ❤❤❤
The awesome in me sees and bows to the awesome in you,
