    Default Weird Food Intolerances

    I was tested by scientists as a young child and they confirmed that I have some sort of nutritional intolerance to Casein (a milk protein). I took a blood test.


    Every psych I saw at that time said it was highly probable that I was an autist and that I matched many of the traits of what was then called Asperger's Syndrome.
    Food intolerances and autism have been allegedly linked by fringe theorists and homeopaths, which means it's probably garbage, except my results came from a fucking lab test.




    Years later I've done some personal testing and discovered that every time I eat any milk, I go completely batshit in my mind and start storing up all this anger that's otherwise completely inexplicable by any apparent cause in my environment. And about 24 hours after I consumed said Casein-containing product, the effect wears off and I'm normal and unflappably optimistic again. Could this really be caused by some outlandish food intolerance?




    Is this bullshit?

    Actually, it's not. Have you heard of GMOS? They alter your brain and body and are KNOWN to cause cancer. It's still legal in the US, and 70% of all foods are GMO. Chances are. It's the GMOS. I may not be correct, but just putting that out there.

    No, that's not it. The blood test confirmed that I have an intolerance to the milk protein Casein. As in, a lab-performed, scientific medical test by qualified professionals.

    Woah that's actually kinda badass. It's like you're in a sci-fi movie.

    It's nothing major, it's just that I exhibited all these weird aspergery behavior patterns and nothing could explain it. My parents were run-amok trying to find a solution and we went to a simple medical testing center.


    Kinda annoying, I can't just say "I'm lactose intolerant" because it's not Lactose at all, it's Casein, and the intolerance is so specific, rare, and undocumented that no one else ever reports the symptoms I had. So you either have to explain to every dumb stranger you meet that you just "can't eat milk," or you do eat milk to be socially acceptable, and then you descend into your own mental hell for 24 hours.


    As an added bonus, you have to get dumped in with the health freaks who praise the Sun and do spirit dances for the Dirt Gods and other bullshit I don't believe in, stuff that wasn't confirmed by a professional medical blood test. Yay for social popularity.

    yeah but isn't casein in just about everything even non-dairy creamer? even things that aren't dairy may contain casein? used as an additive. I'm not saying you shouldn't commit but if it makes your life easier and you less angry......it makes sense to put out the effort

    My understanding is that casein is an intolerance to milk protein. This could be any milk or any product made from milk. Lactose intolerance is a bit easier to deal with because you can still have the protein, just not the lactose, or you can take lactase.

    So yeah, I'd get retested to know for sure.
