There are a few articles on this website that discuss food.

Personally, I have a few allergies. They seem to change with stress, so I assume they are linked somehow to my overall situation, including my ADD.

The bad reactions are mainly skin rashes. Beer does Not help me sleep. Chocolate (without milk) and also cola drinks do hype me up, and this is what I self-medicated on before being diagnosed. Only when I needed to be wide awake.
