Now that just sucks!

Scallops Pictures, Images and Photos

Last night, Joe and I had a "date night". We went to see Seven Pounds with Will Smith and ate at Hananoki. I ordered Shrimp(I always do lol) and Scallops(a new favorite food of mine). It was sooooo good. However, around 11pm last night, I got really sick.I probably puked like 6 times. After I crawled in bed and I began thinking about why I was so sick. Food poisoning? No, Joe was fine. Then it hit me!!! The last time I had scallops, I got sick. Joe mentioned the time I got really sick after eating clam chowder.

OMG I am allergic to Scallops and Clams. Do you know how bad this sucks? I have found a new food that I absolutely LOVE and can't have it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I really thought that I had just gotten a hold of bad clams, but now, we think I have an allergy to certain shellfish. I can totally eat shrimp(thank the good Lord) but every single time I eat Scallops(good little devils) I get sick.

Now some of you may be wondering, "how on earth are Scallops a new food to her?"

Growing up, we ate a lot of Shrimp. I never would try the Clams b/c they just looked so gross. My granddaddy would eat them raw(insert ewww here) w/some hot sauce. I was not brave enough to try them. So as an adult, ok so many years OVER haha, I decided to give them a try and OMG I fell in love. Very tasty and so simple. WELL leave it to me to be allergic to them. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

What were my symptoms? Well, besides the horrible nausea, I was light headed,dizzy and my heart was going nuts. I also felt like I couldn't get enough air but didn't feel any swelling. Then the puking began.

So I will never eat scallops again( I have not even tried eating clams again after that lol) and I am so sad about it. BUMMER. I will stick to shrimp.....
