more sunday

Soon after writing the above I made a stunningly good curry containing a squash, four or five potatoes, broccoli, chili, garlic, ginger, coconut milk, etc the usual, and soon after eating it felt extremely strange and rather unpleasant, and had to lie down. I then slept pretty much straight through until this morning at 5, waking up only to realise I still felt terrible. It was a combination of the way one feels at the onset of a cold, but more nauseous. The first part of that condition, I would say, is a little like I feel when I consume MSG (but I didn't), and in fact I am pretty sure that we were partaking of all natural ingredients, indeed the only pre-prepared ingredient was from a very specifically all-natural company the name of which I shall not use here because the product was good and I'm pretty sure they were not to blame. Also some delightful lime pickle. Anyway, Mia had as much of all of this as I did, and felt fine. So what's this all about? Advice please.

A reaction to the coconut milk? It's very rich. As i get, ahem, older, I find I am a bit allergic to more things.

Coconut milk, really? It was LITE coconut milk... and surely not the pretzels! That'd be the end (a four hour delayed reaction, seems unlikely)

Thank you diagnositicians. I still feel crappy but I expect full recovery by tomorrow.

While it might seem the way I labelled Sam Sejavka's link is a little flippant, it isn't meant to be. I really enjoy his blog and you might too.
