lisamarie Posted December 10, 2011 Share Posted December 10, 2011 I noticed about a month ago that I had a day where I was soooo spacey. I couldn't sit still, I could barely write straight, I couldn't focus on the computer, reading felt like a real struggle because my eyes were totally unfocused and all over the place, I was irrationally angry (almost enraged angry), etc. I figured it was just a weird day. Until today when I feel exactly the same way. Something clicked in my brain (the tiny shred of it that's still working properly) about my reading about a study of food allergies causing handwriting to get sloppy. Looked it up and now know it's from the book, "Is This Your Child?" something, something about allergies. Anyway, I obviously have some allergy that is turning me into a crazy lady. Don't know what the culprit is, but I am starting to wonder if my allergy is something that is also affecting my Jekyll/Hyde daughter. Some days she's super sweet, other days she is a total terror--I never know what child I'm going to get when she comes home from school. I will be keeping a food diary on both of us from now on so I can figure this thing out. Anyone ever experience this/have a child like this--did you figure out what the allergen was? I am going to do a hard core elimination diet on myself, but am less inclined to do that to my DD. I'm thinking I'll find my trigger food(s) and then start with those on her.
