I can’t live in denial forever

I’m afraid I have become lactose intolerant. It’s weird because I drank so much milk and ate my fair of string cheese while pregnant and never had any problems. I craved ice cold milk. So much that our 4 frozen beer mugs turned into my 4 frozen milk mugs.

Since giving birth, my body just can’t tolerate it. I turn into Farty McFartson a few hours after drinking milk or eating pretty much anything dairy. I have been in denial for almost 12 weeks now. I go back to work on February 8th and I can’t just walk around the office crop dusting the place like I have at my house for the past 3 months. That is probably against some sort of policy.

I’m not sure how to deal with this now that I’ve had a come to Jesus moment. What about my mochas? Ice cream? Pizza?

The worse part – cookies. I can’t enjoy cookies without milk. Downing a glass of soy or rice milk after 3 delicious oreo cookies just isn’t the same. I might just crawl into a ball and pout. This isn’t going to end well for anyone involved.

  1. You can crop dust me anytime baby. 😉

  2. NOOOO that can’t be. I am sure its something else. Maybe veggies. Maybe you should lay off veggies and I am sure all will be well.

  3. p – I’ve been drinking Lactaid for months and LOVE IT. I cannot tell the difference between it and regular milk. It’s a GODSEND. And Target even sells their own (cheaper) brand! DO IT.

  4. SAVE THE COOKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Beano?

  6. Once daily lactaid from drugstore.com have saved my dairy obsession.

  7. Awww, I feel your pain. I wen dairy free last week because my baby can’t process milk protein right now. I guess it’s easier for me since the consequence is a really upset baby, but yeah… I miss my ice cream!

  8. I don’t even know what I would do if this happens to me. I go through 2 gallons of milk a week on my own – have since long before getting pregnant. Becoming lactose intolerant is my greatest fear (besides the dark, of course).

  9. Lactaid you say? Interesting.

  10. i feel your pain. i haven’t had aglass of milk in months.
    i picked up some rice milk…yeah. major dissapointment there.

    i heard that lactaid stuff is good but i think it still has milk- so i don’t know if i can have it.


  11. ditto the lactaid.

  12. lactaid- buy the OTC pill that you take before you have dairy.

  13. Almond milk. The vanilla kind tastes like a milkshake. Yum.
