amy g. Posted January 29, 2012 Share Posted January 29, 2012 My oldest has been really over worked for the past two months. She had goats kidding, then bottle feeding and selling kids, then 3 of the does got sick. Two are well now, but that was extra hours of caring for them and giving shots, not to mention, schoolwork, writing papers, maintaining her website, and making and shipping products. Even though I firmly believe in eating only whole and natural foods, I found that she was skipping meals because she was so busy, sometimes only eating once a day. I thought I was doing her a favor by buying a couple of boxes of gluten free cereal bars. Well this last week has been much worse. It is hard to describe, but she has been in a daze, we have actually had her tested for absence seizures when she has been this way in the past. Her face has been slack, and her eyes droopy. It reminds me of how you can tell by a person's face when they are drunk no matter how much they deny it. Yesterday, her friend called me and said that she could tell my Miss Good's voice that she had eaten something she reacted to. We haven't been to any restaurants, so that couldn't be it. Sure enough, everyone of the cereal bars I bought have MSG in them! We threw them away, and she is already improving this morning. Does anyone else have such a strong reaction to MSG? Even though I saw it with my own eyes, I'm incredulous that her reaction to it is so extreme. It is a good thing we are going to the farmers market this morning. I'll buy out the produce stand, and quit looking for an easy short cut. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
