Avoiding Avocados


Yesterday night was to be a night of fellow shipping and learning valuable information in leading a life group.  I should have recalled my reaction to avocados though the thought did not cross my mind while I was munching down on the homemade Mexican food, ever so graciously put together by the blessed members of my church congregation.

I did not notice a reaction to avocados till after I gave birth to my daughter. After eating them, my stomach would begin to hurt, I would feel queasy, and my throat would feel slightly swelled.

My evening was not at all what I expected it to be…bending over the porcelain bowl with what felt like a knife to the stomach. Let’s not forgot to mention the excessive sweating of my body due to my one hundred degree apartment. Bleh!

I’m going to do my best to avoid avocados in the future.
