Way Too Many Allergies

 When I was three I discovered I was allergic to peanuts, peanut butter, and all tree nuts. Then, this summer, I found out I was allergic to soy. A few months ago I had been getting really sick and so my mom took me back to the allergist to get tested again. This time it turned out I was allergic to corn (Corn, as many people do not realize, is in absolutely everything. Go in your pantry or refrigerator and you will find that over half of it has corn syrup, corn starch, high fructose corn syrup, etc. Its even in sodas. All of them. And aspartame.), oranges, beans, apples, rye, barley, milk, broccoli, wheat, egg whites, egg yolks, tomatoes, grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, and many many more. They tested me for I think around sixty outdoor allergies such as trees and grasses. It turned out I was allergic to fifty-five of those. Now, we have to make our own bread and shop for our groceries basically at the health food store. It doesn't really bother me anymore though, I just have to eat really healthy.
