I feel so sick!  
So I was dairy free for about two weeks and I felt sooo much better that I'm pretty sure that's been a huge part of my digestion troubles all along.

I tried some lactaid milk this morning, which is supposed to be milk that I CAN digest and well...I feel like I'm going to throw up apple jacks all over my keyboard. I guess there's something else in milk other than the Lactose that I can't tolerate. Bummer.

Plus, my nasty cold is still nasty. There is no justice in the world.

Maybe the casein. That's what triggers my daughter's allergies. Have you tried soy milk? 8th Continent is her favorite, and they make a calcium supplemented version, which is nice. Just don't get the "light". It tastes so watered down. I have a hard time finding the regular version, though.

soy milk, although a bit more expensive (probably there with lactaid) is supposed to be good.

I developed lactose intolerance as an adult, so I try to keep tabs on this sort of thing.

Hope you feel better doll face

I agree with ivydoor. It's probably the milk protein. I'm allergic to it too. I don't react to lactose. Good alternatives are goat and sheep products or anything made of soy.

I've got an alternative for milk and ice cream. What I really miss is cheese and the soy stuff is gross. Do you have any alternatives?

And can I really say I'm allergic when I don't break out in hives or start breathing funny? It just makes me sick. What do you call that?

That's allergic too. It mostly upsets my stomach. I was nauseous almost every morning for years before I found out the cow's milk was causing it.

As for alternatives: I eat a lot of goat's and sheep's cheese and if it's really the protein you're allergic to you should be able to tolerate that just fine. And as weird as it sounds, goat's ice cream is very good.
