[IP] Language (Was: ALLERGIES)



Cee Dee (and all who don't speak French :),

Quebec is the only Canadian province that you *might* have a problem in if
you don't speak French.  The entire country IS a bilingual one, but Quebec
is the only really French part of the Country.

Come visit Canada.  Your dollar is VERY powerful up here, and (much like the
great diversity of the USA), it's a beautiful country.

Susan,

My real curse is my allergy to eggs.  It affects me through EVERY sense.

If I touch it, like liquid marshmallow on my skin I break out in HUGE hives.

If I accidentally eat it, like taking one lick off a frogurt ice cream cone
when I was 16, 4 hours away from home, and with a friend and her parents
(they were clueless-but were also very patient with me upsetting their day).
I spend about an hour vomiting, about 3 hours with stomach, then intestinal
cramps.  Then it finishes off with diarrhea for about two hours.

If I go to a friends house where they have been baking a cake, I get asthma.

This more so than my diabetes is my curse.  I would love to visit some
foreign countries but the language barriers (due mostly with me being
terrified of getting sick) has limited me to Ontario Canada.  I am even
afraid to go to any other Provence because I do not speak French.

Cee Dee
