Can't escape my genes

I have been miserable for the past 3 weeks. Unexplained stomach aches and bathroom troubles I won't go into details about. And then I figured out that I had sudden onset of lactose intolerance. That blows! I love dairy.
I read somewhere that like 90-99% of all Asians have some form of it or other. Someone at work remarked that most of us develop it by their 20s, that I got an extra decade or so to enjoy dairy.

I can't drink milk now, either. I don't think most adults can consume dairy--don't feel too bad.

I just read in the paper that they think milk causes acne--so, look at the bright side!

Um, well, you are in Thailand... upset stomach and bathroom issues aren't exactly out of the ordinary. But if it is lactose intolerance, those lactaid pills are very effective I hear. My friend loves going for milkshakes after popping one, and he suffers no consequences, whereas without the pills he has likened the experience to that of swallowing a live hand grenade...
