Recently we got more members from Kobe city. They came our meeting with kids, it took 1 hours a half and more. This time LFA will go there to have the meeting! First time! We will have it to use a donation by Sompo Cikyu (Earth) Club Social Contribution Fund. Thank you very much! I would like to give them an opportunity to meet food allergy moms in the same town. If they can do a meeting by themselves in the furture, it would be great. Anyway let's start from LFA.
This is what ‘going to a party’ looks like for us. For our family, the only safe way of being able to go to parties, is to bring along our own party food. It takes all of the pressure off what there might be there or ringing ahead and eliminates any risk of contamination. At age 3 and 1 we can easily get away with this, I am wondering if as they get older though that they might not want their mum to whip out a lunchbox 🤔 Anyway, I’ve got enough to worry about without thinking about things that haven’t even happened yet 😂😂 Do you take along your own food to parties?
Mate, JB just blew. our. minds 🤯🤯 Here is 15 mins worth of new spelling words, flash cards and the accompanying Reader chopped down to just 1, but you get the gist! Sitting 💺still, background🚰🍽 noise, the end of a shocker of a week and with an even shocking-er attendance record and she still smashed 💥💥💥it! That 🧠 brain of hers more than makes up for all its shortcomings in memory because when something goes in it never everrrr EVERRRR comes out 👉🏼👂🏼💆🏽‍♀️📚🔒🔒🔒 (Good, bad or otherwise! 😬🤫🤭🤐) Hahaha #braille #blindlife #justwaittillyouhearherspanish 🇪🇸 #savant #allthemapplesdamo 🍎🍎🍎 🍏
Breakfast! • 💙 Potato waffles 💙 Toast teddy bears 🧸 💙 Hoops soaked in soya milk 💙 Guava fruit • • Little man went straight for the waffles first! He was funny with eating the hoops. He held the spoon in one hand, and used his other to put the hoops one by one onto the spoon 😂 in the end, he gave up and just used his hands 🙊 first time having guava, and he seemed to enjoy it! • • Been feeling quite upset ever since I read the article about the little girl who died whilst on holiday in Spain from suspected anaphylaxis. I’d read the article a few days ago, but seeing a picture of her little face just seemed to make it all so much more real. Realised when I read the article, the family lives in a city quite lovql to me 😨 this is exactly why I’m so anxious regarding little man’s food! Allergies are so so serious! Before having an allergic child myself, I’ll admit I was clueless about how dangerous they can be. The risk from cross contamination never even occurred to me. We need more awareness! • • #babyleadweaning #blw #cmpa #dairyfree #dairyfreeblw #nodairy #eggfree #eggfreeblw #noeggs #nonuts #nococonut #freefrom #babyallergies #allergybaby #igeallergies #allergylife #livingwithallergies #multipleallergies #whatmytoddlereats #whatifeedmychild #babymealideas #littlemanis15months #feedingmybaby #allergymom #allergiesuck #toddlerbreakfast #allergyawareness #anaphylaxis #epipen #alwaysanxious
So here it is....my T-shirt is in the post, the fundraising has begun. Last year I ran for myself. This year it's about my boy. Toby has been allergic to cows milk since about 6 months old. With hopes of him outgrowing it by school age soon vanished as he was then diagnosed with several other food allergies including my worst fear. Peanut. We've gone through food challenges in hospital to rule out reactions to certain foods so we can be safe. Hiis reactions to milk and contaminated items have increased not declined. He has epi pens in case of anaphylaxis. He relies on support and people that know how he feels in situations where his life can be in danger. As you will see on my just giving page, it's difficult to have days out, holidays or even just visiting a cafe. But Toby has the right attitude. He doesn't let his allergies rule him. So please help support my challenges this year and donate, even the smallest amount makes a difference to what this Charity can do to help those affected. Thanks for listening!

I’ve had a really busy week this week but thought that I would mention something that came up during the course of the week. Some of the people in one of the groups had attended a brief first aid session a couple of weekends ago which had been delivered by a nurse. They were told that they had to check for a pulse. When I said that checking for a pulse went out years ago in First Aid guidelines I got some raised eyebrows as ‘surely a nurse is more qualified and knows better than a first aid trainer’ And yes absolutely a nurse is. But the difference is that a nurse is following medical guidelines and as a first aider we follow first aid guidelines. How many of you can find a pulse on someone else? How many people can actually find their own pulse? Trying to find a pulse wastes valuable time when you can very quickly establish if they are breathing normally or not by looking, listening and feeling. So for any of you who still think we should be wasting valuable time trying to find a pulse here are the exact guidelines from the resuscitation council. Nowhere does it say to check for a pulse infact it states that “Checking the carotid pulse (or any other pulse) is an inaccurate method for confirming the presence or absence of circulation” Happy reading!! https://www.resus.org.uk/resuscitation-guidelines/adult-basic-life-support-and-automated-external-defibrillation/ #lovemyjob #savinglives #cpr #cprtraining #firstaidclass #firstaidgroup #training #aed #life #firstaid #choking #paediatric #firstaidatwork #firstresponders #preservelife #anaphylaxis #asthma #diabetes #allergies #epipen #northernireland #workingmum #mumtrepeneur #follow www.goodytrainingsolutions.co.uk
Finally confirmed! - The exact two aneasthetic drugs that took my life for 13 minutes in Jan this year. And Yes, according to my file I have had the same ones before in previous surgeries, & never reacted. & this was a one in a million risk of reaction. My praise, thanks, greatfulness and any other words that can describe complete admiration to my aneathatist, the staff, nurses, the ICU dr's and nurses @ SJOG Subiaco, that didn't waste any time in bringing me back to life. I will never get to meet all of you to thank you in person. But you are incredible at what you do. #eternallygrateful #surgery #allergytesting #anaphylaxis #cardiacarrest #cpr #fracturedribs #icunurses #anesthetists
When the fantasy of your child “growing out” of #foodallergies goes down the drain... and then you try not to react because you don’t want your child to pick up on your vibes. Sometimes it takes all my energy to #staystrong , but inside the fear, anxiety, sadness and hurt are #raging . You know the challenges your #allergykid will face. But no matter what- #you continue to do everything in your power to #advocate for his #safety and for a #normal #childhood #whatevernormalmeans @allergypartnersnj #allergyawareness #foodallergyawareness #allergyawareness #foodallergies #allergymom #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #allergyaware #anaphylaxis #allergykids #foodallergykids #allergymama
*** I love someone with multiple food allergies *** For many food allergy moms, the anxiety is crippling. For 8 years I did not get a babysitter (only my mom or qualified relatives), I did not go on vacations, and I never separated from my daughter in any way. It’s been quite the journey with extra meetings with teachers and nurses, bullying and exclusion experiences at school, week long hospital stays 🏥 and 7 times of almost meeting death 🚑. You’ll never know it seeing the smile she wears on her face just like her mother 😊 My second child is allergy-free, lucky guy. So if you ever catch me in the grocery store taking forever, it’s because I’m reading the labels on every single item of interest for purchase 🤷🏽‍♀️ - #allergy #allergies #asthma #health #foodallergy #pollen #foodallergies #dogallergy #naturesupplements #allergytesting #allergymom #lovek #allergyawareness #k #healthylifestyle #food #mg #healthy #dogallergies #allergylife #acne #allergyseason #eczema #breathe #anaphylaxis #propolis #gutissues #glutenfree #breatheeasy #bhfyp
Too soon to joke? Real Talk: We spent A LOT of time vascillating between hurt + disappointed (borderline angry) when it came to family functions, holidays and social situations after our son’s diagnosis. Inevitably, someone was always hurt. Someone was upset about something ~again. It was rough. It was challenging. On all sides. Food allergies are just plain hard. For everyone. Parents want support + understanding. Family members want Thanksgiving traditions and the holiday celebrations they’ve envisioned for decades. Someone was miffed about at a missed birthday party or we were sad about an event loaded with our son’s allergens. It was a difficult few years for everyone to get their footing. BUT, my friends. It does get easier. I swear! Education and communication are your greatest resources, and if at first you don’t succeed… try, try again! It is not always a clear path and it can be a little messy, but love and inclusion will prevail. And…eventually…you will all be able to joke about it. Promise💙
For parents of children with life threatening food allergies.....There’s no putting our guard down. Food is everywhere! No one understands why, but food allergies in children are increasing ... 1 in 15 experience complications. For some of us, it’s life threatening! 90 percent of allergic reactions in the United States are milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, soy, and wheat. We are not “weird” “overprotective””healthy” “dramatic ..... but we do live in daily fear in a very uneducated world that minimizes this very real struggle! #foodallergymom #anaphylaxis #peanutfree
I MISS PUMPKINS. Looking at the photos from last years fall makes my heart hurt 😭 ••• I feel the itch to change my hair again but I have no idea what I want to do...Do I change the color??? or the cut??? shave my head maybe??? Who knows 🙃 ••• Today's the first day in ages I have been able to eat without doubling over in pain! Its still uncomfortable and I am still bloating, but its at least something! ••• My submission to @themightysite is being published! I have a new youtube video up all about my medical binder! Plus I have a @redbubble shop open with cute stickers and notebooks!

"They say don't go out, don't get lost in the dark. Don't go in too deep, don't swim out too far. They say don't go out, don't go out too fast. 'Cause I feel it all and I need to live a little at last." -Live (Billie Marten) ••• My chronic illness makes it difficult to 'live'. Yes, I'm alive. But sometimes, when you're dragged down by unending pain and complete exhaustion, living just means surviving. It definitely meant surviving when I was at my worst, and that's okay. ••• But I don't want to look back on today, this week, this year as wasted time. As wasted life. Some days I can only focus on surviving, but when I can do more than that, I will. I want my life to tell of the God who gave me it to me, I want to truly live. ••• "'Cause I feel it all and I need to live a little at last." 🌦
When you finally find a diagnosis for a seemingly mysterious and undiagnosbale set of extreme symptoms which require me to carry an epi-pen, but have no known cause. Thanks instagram and @digestingthefacts for helping me figure out what several emergency room visits and easily a dozen medical professionals couldn't. That makes twice this year I've self diagnosed what no one else could. Do I get a fucking medal? Or just another slew of medications. Also, sometimes there are no triggers and #idiopathicmastcellactivation syndrome is just like a ghost hanging out in the shadows waiting to show up without any warning. Awesome. #wheresmyhonorarymedicaldegree Reposted from @digestingthefacts - Mast cell triggers can vary widely and change suddenly. Avoiding triggers entirely is pretty much impossible, so treatment includes using medications to prevent reactions and treat symptoms while avoiding as many triggers as possible. . . . . . . . #mastcellactivationdisorder #mcas #mastcell #raredisease #mastocytosis #anaphylaxis #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #spoonie #invisibleillness #dysautonomia #POTS #gastroparesis #tubie #feedingtube #zebrastrong #disabled #ehlersdanlossyndrome #ehlersdanlos #EDS - #regrann

#Repost @cowsdontlayeggs with @get_repost ・・・ {LIGHTBULB} A few weeks ago, we had a lightbulb moment. My husband and I were talking about my daughter’s allergy anxiety and how we could help her feel more comfortable with food choices. He simply said, “Let’s teach her how to read the word ‘egg’.” 💡 Of course. It was so simple, yet so smart. Imagine having to trust other people completely to tell you if your food was safe. How scary that must be. In these last few weeks, I’ve seen her confidence skyrocket as she reaches for new foods to try and is able to search for that key word on the label. Teach them. Empower them. #allergyawareness #foodallergykids #eggallergy #foodallergy #allergymom #foodallergyawareness #foodallergylife #empowerkids #empoweryourself #awareness #power #anaphylaxis
Dinner time! 👩🏼‍🍳 Look at all that sauce 😍 ⁣ Tonight I made turkey in a creamy garlic sauce with brussels, coliflower and parmentier potatoes 🤤⁣ ⁣ I haven’t posted much in the last couple of weeks cos I’ve been back home looking after my dad who had a procedure done on his heart and there were some complications beforehand.⁣ ⁣ It was a very scary time for awhile especially because it’s just me and him, doesn’t bear thinking about if anything happened to him ⁣ ⁣ But! He’s home and getting back to his usual self so I am back to uni for a week before we have a week off for reading week (am I even at uni?) 😂⁣ ⁣ I am noticing that in the last week or so I’m becoming fixated on specific foods again and I know this happens when I’m really struggling with my eating so I’m trying to make a conscious effort to listen to my body and what it’s telling me instead of listening to my eating disorder 💪🏻⁣ ⁣ Hope you all have lovely weekends! 💞 #bulimianervosarecovery #bulimiafighter #bulimia #bulimianervosa #bulimiarecovery #recovery #relapse #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorders #eatingdisorderrecovery #recipies #cooking #university #glutenfree #nutfree #allergies #anaphylaxis #dinner #mentalhealth #mentalillness ⁣ ⁣ ⁣
To have my 5th book now included in the resource library at CHEO (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario) is truly an unreal realization. To see the pride on my son face as he found the allergy section and pulled out ‘our’ books was equally an emotional author as well mommy moment! 💙 ALLERGY BOOKS FOR KIDS www.allergybooksforkids.ca 📚 #allergies #childrensbooks #bookstagram #author #foodallergies #ottawa #childrenshospital #ontario #canada @townofprescott @food_allergy_canada #anaphylaxis

With absolute pride my son sharing book #5 ‘SCHOOL RULES’ with his allergist. Nolan has been in Dr. Ham Pongs care for 10 1/2 years, his first anaphylactic reaction being at just 6 months old. A decade ago my first office visit was emotional and overwhelming as I sat holding an infant who was struggling with eczema, asthma, multiple anaphylactic food allergies as well environmental allergies. With the guidance of an amazing allergist our understanding of allergies grew allowing our anxiety to diminish. Moments such as today allow me the reward of reflecting upon how my son has learned confidence through his allergic lessons as well how far I have come on my own journey from that of anxious allergy parent to that of author sharing awareness. 📚 ALLERGY BOOKS FOR KIDS www.allergybooksforkids.ca #allergist #ottawa #ontario #canada #author #foodallergies #anaphylaxis #asthma #childrensbooks #allergyawareness

So it’s doubtful that I’m going to win any awards for being the most organised mummy today. Get to the swimming baths with everything you could ever imagine...apart from the swimming shorts. Boys are already half changed, we’d already got over the drama of passing the soft play and not going in. Put undies on top of swimming nappies or put clothes back on, load up the car, go home, get swimming shorts, return and start again? What would you do?

I hesitated to share this but since it’s plagued my mind for the last couple days I’ve decided it’s important. . . Our sweet Henry went into anaphylactic shock from a peanut allergy on Wednesday. We were at the doctor doing a food challenge since his blood levels showed he may be able to tolerate peanuts. He tolerated them for an hour and then a reaction started. He was first treated with an antihistamine and we continued to watch him. . . You guys things changed so fast. He started wheezing so we gave him one epi pen. He then seemed totally fine. He was laughing and talking and then things turned quickly. He suddenly was covered in hives, swollen, itchy everywhere and passed out in my arms. The doctor immediately administered the second epi. I am so grateful we were there because I am not positive I would have known what to do since things changed so quickly for my little guy. . . Please be mindful of your kids and friends with allergies. I saw firsthand that these situations can be life and death. I am so grateful that Henry was in a place to get the help he needed. Allergies are no joke, my friends. We must be vigilant in protecting those that are faced with them. Even as a parent of a child with allergies I’ve learned so much in the last few days. Education for allergies is so important. #lifeofhrm #foodallergyawareness #foodallergymom #anaphylaxis

Leaner - Yes⁣ Happier - No ⁣ ⁣ I want to talk about something I’ve never spoken about before... ⁣ ⁣ And TBH is embarrassing considering how irrational my fear was at times. ⁣ ⁣ And that is.....Food Anxiety. Many people suffer with it, although usually it’s under different circumstances. Mine ruled me for about 2 years. ⁣ ⁣ When I was 18 years old I found out that I was anaphylactic, now this wasn’t the end of the world. I felt invincible, nothing was going to get me and certainty not a piddley little prawn..... although it can kill me in 15 mins. ⁣ ⁣ For the first few years I didn’t take it seriously, I would continue to eat what I wanted to, pushing the limits until I had numerous allergic reactions, one was on an airplane on route to Europe with no way of landing in a hurry. ⁣ ⁣ This was a turning point. The shift was polarising, I never left the house without my eppipen, I obsessed over who cooked my food, what was in it and if there was ANY possibility of seafood traces in my food. ⁣ ⁣ I became anxious flying, anxious eating out and to be honest a pretty boring eater. ⁣ These days things have TOTALLY changed, I eat all food, I don’t let fear hold me back in anyway shape or form, life is precious but its not worth stressing over the things you cannot control. ⁣ ⁣ Since then I’ve travelled to 15 countries, eaten all the local food (where possible), and not let this this thing rule me. ⁣ ⁣ Don’t waste your youth living in fear. Push the limits. Test yourself and get out of your comfort zone. ⁣ ⁣ If anyone has struggled with this feel free to message me. Hell, we can even compare Eppipen sizes.... ⁣💉💉 ⁣ ✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻 #RealTalk
Excitement plus to get her hospital bribe 🏩🌟 I mean “reward” for tolerating a physical today (a very big deal for our JB who doesn’t take kindly to being shut in a room or being touched OR both!) But the results are in.... we do not, I repeat, DO NOT HAVE PUBERTY 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🥳. . It’s been a rollercoaster 🎢 suddenly having to be worrying about things we thought were yearssss ahead of us, and that are uncomfortable to think about and even more so to say out loud / pursue, let alone try and explain to the 6 and 353.5/364.25ths year old what and who is going on and why ...but I guess that’s just another part of The #septoopticdysplasia Card 🧠👀🌀🃏 she’s / we’ve been dealt and have to get used to!!. . Although I wasn’t quite sure how to act when the Doc 👩🏼‍⚕️📊 delivered the heavily anticipated verdict.... because it’s not often we don’t get the baddest of the news’, *snort*. . So tonight we breatheeeeeeeeee 💆🏻‍♀️💆🏼‍♂️and we celebrate 🎉 with whiskey 🥃 and soda water dregs and can put our minds to more enjoyable things ...like her birthday 🎁 YIPPEE!!! ...The finding what she wants online within 10 days bit - not so much Hahahahahahaha
Nearly 6 million U.S. children and teens — about two per classroom — have food allergies. In children, allergy to peanuts, which can be life-threatening, has gone up more than 21 percent since 2010. (Source npr.org) How many people do you know who have food allergies? Now how many of you know how to use epinephrine (epipen, auvi q, etc)? If your friend or family member had an anaphylactic reaction right now, could you help? Videos coming soon! Learn what you can do to help.

Many people are using these terms interchangeably but they are very important differences. . > Food intolerances present primarily with gastrointestinal symptoms - bloating, gassiness, diarrhea - and is due to an inability to fully digest certain foods. . > Food allergies, on the other hand, are due to activation of your allergy cells that can present with various symptoms - hives, itching, breathing difficulty, vomiting and low blood pressure which can be life-threatening. . > Food allergy reactions occur every single time you ingest the culprit food - it doesn’t take a large amount to activate your allergy cells! . More to come on these topics! If you’re having reactions with certain foods, talk to your doctor so he or she can refer you to the right specialist - an allergist or gastroenterologist! . 📸 credit: American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology . #foodallergy #foodintolerance #anaphylaxis #food #allergy #pnwallergydoc #drmelmd
This pic is everything! It’s been a very tough, heart wrenching last few years for this #FoodAlleryMom . I’ve struggled, questioned and doubted, regretted, triumphed, cried, celebrated, survived... And then something I had been working towards finally came to fruition. I wanted to celebrate and document this huge event in our lives-and so when I saw the grey, rainy weather on the day I had scheduled for this photo shoot I felt defeated. But my amazing photographer @photojenic1013 said #life is about #singingintherain . In a way can’t we all relate? You wait your entire life to meet your child. He or she is the most amazing thing you have ever done. All of your hopes and dreams are realized with this miracle. But then, something isn’t right. You see your child struggling, suffering, in discomfort or pain - it’s like waking up to a cloudy, rainy day. But, it doesn’t have to be. We can make sure that our child is the sun that brightens even the most dreary of days. We can show them how to jump in the puddles and sing in the rain! It may take a little extra, but look at how wonderful the final picture looks. #family #love #smile #photooftheday #family #love #photo #kids #followme #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergyawareness #foodallergymom #foodallergylife #allergymom #foodallergykids #allergyawareness #anaphylaxis #epipen #blessed #togetherwerestronger #teal @hatley
😥Real talk - Managing food allergy and anxiety. 😥 When you live with severe food allergy, it is likely you will experience anxiety. Maybe it's when you eat out without your parents, or try a new food? Maybe you experience it when you're hanging out at the shops with your friends, or when you forget to take your EpiPen out with you! It's important to know that anxiety is a normal human response, even though it is uncomfortable. We like to think about Nadi Fernando's (Psychologist at the Sydney Children’s Hospital Westmead) smoke alarm analogy. Nadi talked us through this at the 250K Youth Camp last month: "Anxiety can be thought of as like the body’s smoke alarm system. A smoke alarm can be triggered when a piece of toast is burning as well as when the house is burning down. Our anxiety can be very protective, but it can become a problem. It is worth addressing anxiety when it feels excessive, uncontrolled or intrusive, persistent or impacts on everyday life by stopping us doing things we really want to do or need to do. Addressing anxiety means seeing a doctor or psychologist and learning some skills to help manage anxiety before it slowly restricts our lives. " If you feel that your anxiety about your food allergy is impacting on your life, speak to your parents and see your GP. #weare250k #youarenotalone #foodallergy #allergyawareness #anaphylaxis #teenlife #anxiety
It’s ok!!!! . • I commented recently in a Facebook support group that someone should consider therapy to help with their anxiety over test results. Then I realized.... I don’t actually go to therapy. I talk about mental health a lot on here and decided I should be more transparent. . • Before I do, please remember these are purely my unlucky experiences and circumstances. Therapy can be so helpful, and I plan to try it again in the future. . • In the past year, I’ve tried therapy twice. In the intake evaluation, both therapists said I had great mental health- no problems with anxiety or depression. I expected this. Even though my physical health has deteriorated, I’ve known my mental health has never been better. Then, the first therapist said I needed to just get a boyfriend and everything would feel better. The second one doubted all of my physical health diagnoses and talked to some of my university officials behind my back, without my permission. Both of those were through free programs, because I can’t afford anything else at the moment. So, if you haven’t already guessed, I didn’t go back to those people and haven’t gone to therapy since. . • I have a ton of good habits (pictured: journaling) that I use instead for my mental health. I refined these after having panic attacks through middle/the beginning of high school. I haven’t been in a bad place in a while, and to be clear, if I was, I would try therapy again. I get sad and angry and frustrated and anxious about things that happen to me. But those emotions are not inherently bad, especially when the situation calls for it. I consider myself a positive person, but right now my circumstances kinda suck so I’m not going to be happy about them. And that’s ok. I know if I’d had better experiences, then I’d be in therapy right now, even though I don’t “need” it, because life can be hard. Bottom line: it’s ok to not be ok. There’s no shame in getting help. Do what you need to do. • What do you do for your mental health?
Pfizer Canada has announced that EpiPen and EpiPen Jr are now “fully available” at pharmacies across the country. If you’ve been carrying an expired device due to the EpiPen shortage, you should be able to go get a new one now. Or two.

It is important that my family and I know how to use epinephrine but I am not always at home or with them. If I am at a friend’s house, it’s very important that they know how to help me if I have any anaphylactic situation. Be sure everyone around you knows what to do in case of emergency and what signs to look for. They could save your life. #mylifewithfoodallergies #foodallergy #foodallergies #foodallergyawareness #anaphylaxis #anaphylaxisawareness #epinephrine #epinephrineeducation #epinephrineawareness #epipen #epipenjr #auviQ #allerject #evzio #epifirstepifast #epifirst #epipenlife #alwayscarrytwo #benadryl #antihistamine #allergicreaction #wearenotalone #allergytips #autoinjector #epicares #rebekahreacts
Me in my natural habitat. Looking tired with greasy hair. 📷: @romanpersephone ••• Continuing with my AmAzinG universal luck...My gastroenterologist is booked solid until june after that they aren't even scheduling. Since they just switched systems they also do not have a cancelation list and asked us to call 1-2x a week to see if they could fit us in. ••• I am tired. I am nervous. I am in pain.

I’m not going to change your life with this one…but DRESS IN LAYERS when you go to the SoCal office. The office is the temperature of Alaska in winter. Seriously. I am always freezing and my nerves definitely exacerbate my temperature, so my opinion probably doesn’t mean that much, but my toddler and my husband, who both run hot (like swim in the ocean in the winter), get cold in that office (~really~ cold). I think it has something to do with all these brave little bodies dosing and not overheating them (pure speculation) ….but when it’s cold…it’s cold. The two appointments we had last summer that were stressful (~abnormally stressful~ blood draw days) I was no joke dripping with sweat by time they were over. Again, nerves didn’t help, but I’ve never wanted a workout top and a sports bra so bad (and hubby was definitely in the same boat, but probably didn’t want a sports bra. Ha.). . This little tidbit isn’t going to break the internet, but hopefully someone will be a {tiny} bit more comfortable.

Exercise-induced anaphylaxis; anyone with me? The text is from my clinical picture/history I wrote up a few years ago to help my doctors understand the complexity of my problem. My exercise intolerance was something that puzzled everyone, including me for a very long time. Yet another mystery solved in the light of #dysautonomia #MCAS & #anaphylaxis My neurologist asked me to co-lead a few shared medical appointments with him, given my experience both as a patient and a healthcare professional; and given that my story is so surprising & unusual. Nevertheless, it is a SUCCESS story. I am happy to participate both in sharing my journey with disappointments, failures and victories, and as someone to LISTEN, because dysautonomia patients NEED TO BE HEARD, first and foremost. #itsnotinyourhead #thisisdysautonomia My therapist wants me to write a book about my journey to encourage other patients that although no cure, there IS light at the end of the tunnel, and to never give up. On the other hand, to get medical professionals understand the dangers of not diagnosing/misdiagnosing and/or simple arrogant ignorance. Ultimately, I am a science person, to me numbers speak more clearly than words, hence my draw towards research. #MCAD #mastcells #mastcellactivationsyndrome #MCAS #mastcellactivationdisorder #thisisdysautonomia #dysautonomia #dysautonomiainternational #POTS #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #spoonie #spoonielife #EDS #ehlersdanlossyndrome #rarediseases #tmsforacure #themastocytosissociety #notalldisabilitiesarevisible . #invisibleillness #chronicillness #ehlersdanlosawareness #badgened #dysautonomiaawareness #genetictrainwreck
Where are all my allergy moms at?? ———————————————————————————It can be such a TOUGH road.. we are still finding more allergies out, yesterday his lips swelled eating chicken and had to write down the seasonings used. Talk about an anxious mom. ———————————————————————————Every 6 months he has his back pricked checking on his allergies and testing for any new ones we question. From anaphylactic responses to digestive, respiratory, and skin reactions. Some don’t come up on the tests. He struggles through a long list... from food, to plants, to animals...breaks my heart when he feels left out or sad he can’t try something. ———————————————————————————This past year we also learned about Oral Response Allergies. When certain trees are in bloom there is a list of fruits and veggies he will also be allergic to during that time. WHAT? I’m telling you... ———————————————————————————Of all my kids... he LOVES FOOD! literally eating all the time!! He says I’m hungry at least 60 times a day. Such a strong boy, always asking first if he can eat something and knows his allergies. ———————————————————————————We love our @rawboho bracelet and need to update it with his anaphylactic allergies. Praying this boy grows out of some! ———————————————————————————What are your kids allergies? Tips or advice you would share with mamas going through this journey?

A reaction caused by an allergen exposure could lead to anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that requires immediate care. Knowing the signs/symptoms, administering the EpiPen, providing further care and calling 911 guarantees the best possibilities to save a life in an anaphylactic crisis.
