Cereal. Is this even cereal anymore?

Every since I can remember pulling the bag of Cheerios from my grandma's cabinet when I was 4, I've been eating cereal every day. Well, not throughout grade school, but ever since I've been making my own breakfast (basically forever, right?). There is maybe a day or two that I miss a month. But on some days I eat 2 bowls and it makes up for the missed days.
Obviously, tastes and values have changed over the years. It used to be all about warm 2% milk with cheerios. Then honey nut cheerios. Then god knows what horrible kids cereal the corporations manufacture. Somewhere in middle school I realized how unhealthy 2% was, so I switched to nonfat. Then a little while later realized that organic or natural milk was so much better. As was Trader Joe's granola. Hello granola and milk! somewhere in this time period came excessive consumption of yogurt and granola as yogurt is superior to milk.
Then, about a little over a year ago, I found out I was lactose intolerant and the world of soy, rice and almond milk opened up. The, about 3 months ago I found out i was super allergic to cane sugar and almonds. Good bye beloved vanilla almond granola and vanilla soy milk.

what am I left with?
All natural Shredded Wheat (two ingredients: wheat and vitamin E) and Wheat&Barley with UNSWEETENED soy milk.

my life has become so bland!

Dead arm

I got the hep[atitis] A, meni[ngococcal] and polio vaccines today.

In two weeks it'll be the typhoid and yellow fever vaccines.

At least those won't make my arm incredibly sore! this is ridiculous.

I find it weird that there is a shortage of yellow fever vaccines in the United States. And also with rabies vaccines. They are so expensive! Pharmaceutical companies are making major bank.
