I'm allergic to milk.

I'm not lactose intolerant. That's when your body lacks an enzyme to break down the sugar. Nothing happens, it just goes right through you, if you know what I mean. It doesn't have the potential to be fatal.

No, I'm actually allergic to milk. That means my body prepares for battle when milk hits my throat. It feels like it's closing up and that it's hard to swallow. I don't know if anything actually happens, but it sure feels uncomfortable...

When people are normally allergic to something, they get hives or something. Not me. There's not a sign that anything is happening to me. So people feed me dairy, and I quietly suffer in a corner, hoping it will pass soon so I can enjoy life again.

It sure makes eating these (very tasty things) very difficult.
I just accept the consequences.

But one day, it's going to really take it's revenge on me.
