I've been a member of this forum but just recently found this message board! I gotta tell my story.
My whole life I remember hating vegetables.
I don't remember why. At all! I literally have no memory of when I first tried most veggies and my reaction to them.
These are the veggies I love...which are also the unhealthiest...
Carrots-my dad said I ate so much as a kid I turned orange. I love em!
Potatoes-but only when they mashed or baked with cheese and butter!
Green beans-my grandma used to make string beans and then add ham hock and Crisco.
So as you can see the only veggies I can tolerate are ones that aren't that healthy, especially the way they're prepared.
In my entire 19 years of life I bet I've never ate more than 4 square inches of lettuce. I hate the stuff with a passion. I gag on it every single time I taste it. I've tried it plain...I've tried it with every salad dressing imaginable...I've tried it on burgers. The taste of consistency of it makes me wanna hurt.
The same deal with tomatoes. I love the sauce but can't eat them raw. I remember one time I tried to force myself to eat one on a turkey sub. I got sick.
Any other vegetables that I haven't mentioned I hate as well.
I tried eating broccoli slathered in cheese the other day. I thought maybe the cheese would break me into eating it. But I ate maybe half a cup and felt like crying. I couldn't do it. I felt sick at my stomach.
What causes this weirdness?
