Why can't I just be normal?

I decided to try a new juice this morning but it turns out I'm allergic to it. Now I get to feel sick all morning. I really wish I weren't allergic to most fruits and vegetables. I'd love to be able to eat them. I'm also allergic to tree nuts (like almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc) so 90% of healthier alternative foods are just off the table for me.

I hate this ;_;

Much of that "healthier alternatives" are not really than healthier than a humble apple. Remember than until relatively recently most people ate whatever was available around

Apples, thankfully, I can eat! Grapes and oranges too. I can't eat bananas though, or canteloupe, cucumber, melons, most fresh veggies, etc. It's frustrating.

I'm sorry, that sounds like it sucks. Especially when the easy mode of vegetable consumption involves premade or premixed stuff.

You can't fly either. And how long can you swim underwater? Or even sit naked on a rock in Norway, just as any baby seal can do.

If there were no variety in the world, things would be much less interesting. Take your allergy as a challenge - see what strange foods and combinations lie barely beyond the cusp of your abilities.
