At a nearby candy store they have begun to ask me if I want "the usual" (1/6 pound of skittles and 1/6 pound of sour watermelon, and yes I do know that that's a weird amount.) Instead of seeing this as a sign that I need to cut back (or at least diversify) I feel like the workers and I have formed a friendship through my candy obsession.
But lately after eating things with sugar in them I've been really sneezey and phlegmy. (I know that's gross, that's why I'm writing this.) So, I've been seriously considering giving up sugar for a time and see if these symptoms go away. Even writing about this decision feels daunting.
The thing is I actually have a lot of allergies already. Wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, peanuts, and there are still more. I have been able to give these things up and still be fine and happy and eat. But what about bread and cookies and chocolate chip cookie dough ice-cream? you ask. Well, there are allergy friendly options and some other alternatives. Same with sugar I guess; honey, agave etc. I've just never thought about living without sugar.

The same will be true of sugar for awhile, until I know if I am allergic. And who knows, it could not be sugar that's making me sick. Maybe it's just Nick's cologne or something else expendable, like air.
Until this experiment is concluded, do you know of a good support group I can join. Recovering
