Robin's NestMushrooms: 02/08/07

Sometime over the course of last year I seem to have developed an intolerance to mushrooms. So far the ones that bother the most are the Portabellas. I've spent an agonizing twelve hours or so feeling very sorry for myself and trying to sleep it off on the couch.

Now within minutes of eating mushrooms I'll get terrible stomach cramps, gas and back pain. Because of all this I ended up going to bed at eight before finishing my blog posts for February 8th. Later I moved upstairs to sleep the rest of the night on the couch.

As a kid sometimes mushrooms would bother me, specially sauteed mushrooms. I didn't think much of it as the tummy trouble then was pretty light and we so rarely ate sauteed anything that the problem didn't come up much.

It was only after Harriet was born and we went back to making our own spaghetti sauces from scratch that I started to notice the problem. Of course at first I thought it was just the usual post C-section intestinal weirdness but more recent meals where the main ingredient has been mushrooms and the symptoms have been worse than just after Harriet, I know the problem is the mushrooms.
