Yesterday was Sunday, May 25 2014. I woke up and decided that it was high time that I give Will Power the day off.
Breakfast started great. My husband and I are based in Malaysia, and bacon here is pretty expensive. But the night before, we ate dinner in Jalan Alor, a street filled with hawker food. We bought some jerky type bacon. Sooo, for Sunday morning breakfast, I decided to make Bacon pancakes. I’ve seen photos before in facebook but I wasn’t quite sure how they made it. What I did was I dipped the bacon in the pancake batter and then on the pan it went. It turned out great. We ate it with butter and maple syrup. It is still in the “pancake family” anyway!
The rest of the day was pretty much healthy eating. Then came 5pm. Marco was sleeping. I was alone. No one was watching me. I had a craving for cheese. We had cheese in the fridge. Will Power was suppose to be back from his day off already! He was late! The next thing I knew, I was slumped on the sofa watching The Trophy Wife and I had 2 empty cheese slice plastics in my hands. WHAT HAVE I DONE?!?!
As I have mentioned before, https://kymalupa.com/2014/05/10/may-10-is-world-lupus-day/ I try to avoid dairy products as much as I can. And this is why…
At around 6:30 pm I stared to scratch my face. I dared myself to look in the mirror and there they were, itty bitty rashes popping out here and there, they were ready to come out and play!
I took this photo this morning. I woke up with this skin. This is going to take a few days..
Oh, I forgot to mention that I used milk for the pancake batter. So I had 2 episodes of milk intake during the day. A small amount wouldn’t usually result to this. It was probably the cheese slices that did the final push.
I am not sure how dairy products can cause this reaction to my skin. It has happened before and I really try to avoid them as much as I can. It could be that dairy reacts with my Lupus. Or maybe just that my body wants to reject dairy. I really don’t know. But..
I sure am blaming this one on Will Power.
