Life without Chocolate or Coffee? Can I survive?!?!

Well over the last two days i have had two hectic, and not fun days, of allergy testing. I am not one for needles, but i survived and really didn't cry ;-) I did whimper a little though.

The Doctor told me he would send me a more in depth list later, but here are my food allergies:
Cola--Aka, no coke or pepsi (but thankfully i can have Dr. Pepper)
mushrooms (which i'm fine with)

What they told me to do is get off of all those things for two to three months and then, like you would do to a baby's diet, slowly add them back one at a time and see what i react to. So, three months without chocolate, coffee, corn, or peanuts :( Well, life goes on i suppose.

Ok, now here are some of my stories for those readers who have time and want to read.
I went in today and they had a little boy there (he was there yesterday with me too) and he asked "why are we here again? can we go home?" Poor kid. Then I tried the same, it didn't work. Then, he screamed the whole time, and for those of you who don't know, i used to (and still sometimes am) that kid. Then when i came out to wait for the doctor, he was there again. He went back in asking his mom, "this is just to talk right, no more pokes?"
Hahahaha, i felt like that kid the whole time. He was about three, and i'm much older, but i wanted to say everything he was. It's amazing how certain fears never really leave us, they just lessen slowly.
Well, i may post more about this later but that's all for now!
