  1. I remember I dated someone who got a blood allergy test and almost creamed herself when they said she was allergic to gluten, eggs and tomatoes.

    I was like you eat those all the time though and do fine with vaccinations. But the ship had sailed. I mean I understand sensitivities are different than allergies but idk. It was bizarre and really annoying.
