I need to be more careful when I am away from home. I recently realized that I have become more comfortable with some foods, especially homemade foods, when I really should not be.
The reason for this? When I am at home, my foods are safe. The products are carefully screened at the supermarket so they do not contain my triggers.
The problem with this is that when I am at other peoples houses and they offer me something to eat or drink, I don't think about the product and ingredients they are using. When I prepare the same foods at home, everything is safe. So although their foods look the same, they may be totally different and may not be right for me. I have learned that I have to either make sure I eat before going out or bring a dish that I can eat when I visit.
One thing you'll get to know about me is that I tend to get on a subject and stick with it until I can figure it out or get it out of my system. I know I'm not going to figure this out any time soon. Triggers have been on my mind a lot lately as I really need to get the number of Migraines I am getting down.
At my last Migraine Specialist's visit, she even mentioned that we need to work on finding the right preventative combination since I do have so many triggers. It made me feel so much better having a doctor tell me that rather than having a doctor tell me that 'sometimes you can find too many triggers' as I was told by one of my previous doctors. As you could imagine, that previous doctor only lasted the one doctor visit.
