You have NO idea how this made my day!  Coffee is a KILLER for me and I have had to go from 1-2 cups a day to zero! Today I passed by Dunkin Doughnuts and picked up an iced coffee and no reaction.  Hot coffee would give me 30 seconds before I would start running to the bathroom.  I am trying to drink it slowly just in case and I probably won't have it except for about once every other week just because I know it's not good but atleast it's an option!  I am a happy camper today! Thanks for letting me jump for joy here, it's not often I get to post something good! =)

I can't touch coffee either. Ditto for tea or cola - basically anything with caffeine. Sometimes I cheat, and seem to be OK - only to suffer for it later.

So I've had to say "good-bye" to caffeine. I should mention that I can't eat hot peppers either. Definitely unfair, but I suppose it could be worse - at least I can still eat solid food.

Happy Halloween to all,

Awe, I was so excited for you, till I read your follow-up post. I also love coffee (both iced and hot) and find, like most everything else, I can be ok sometimes and not at other times. But...I do enjoy it frequently since, even though it may give me some discomfort, I know it won't give me a blockage, and that's my major concern.

What gives me joy in life is by no means related to food. To me, food is an enemy, not a friend.

Hope you find your joy.

Dang it Crapster, My monkeys were partying for you...and now they're aggrevating the crap out of me again!

I know it doesn't sound as good but try a Chai Latte Ginger tea made with soy milk next time you're by the "coffee" house. That's my alternative. Just stay the heck away from any thing called pumpkin spice...whew....no further explanation needed!
