When people find out my diet restrictions, they often ask me "Well what CAN you eat?" and when I was diagnosed with 4 genetic gastric/food related diseases nearly a year ago, I thought the answer was "not much". Imagine having a doctor tell you you can't eat 95% of the foods you've loved your whole life, and being so desperately ill for so long that you'll do anything to make the pain lessen. Less than 6 months ago an amazing person came into my life, who saw my restrictions not as a flaw, but as a challenge. A challenge to make me love eating again. This week alone @isildur_unchained made my friend @nickezee and I so much delicious vegan, allergen-free food with his original recipes. Thank you, Noah, for making me realize it's possible for me to be a foodie again.
