Lauren Marvel SOC101B 1/30/19 Sociological Imagination Until recently I was unware that my issue had affected other people besides me. For the majority of my life I have suffered from a numerous amount of food intolerances. When I was younger it started out with just the basic junk foods like box brownies, cookies and fruit snacks accompanied by an upset stomach. Slowly over the years I had to cut more and more from my diet. Bread, sandwich meats, certain fruit juices, ice cream, everything with high fructose corn syrup and even certain vegetables. I would be sick for days with stomach pains and vomiting and diarrhea. For the better part of my high school years I ate only had crackers water and supplements because I was so afraid to be sick. Everything took a turn for the worst my sophomore year when my body started to reject all the food I was eating. I was eventually hospitalized for three days with phenomena also anemic, dehydrated due to a compromised immune system. By the time we knew something was wrong. I went from a healthy hundred and thirty pound teenager girl to an emaciated ninety-six pound almost skeleton.
