So you’ve received your welcome letter into the food allergy community. I understand. The despair, hopelessness and confusion that comes with that letter should be forbidden! And of course, you’ve probably heard the golden question hundreds of times; “will your child grow out of the allergy”? You want to say yes, but unsure how to answer. Don’t panic, there’s hope!For now, let’s place that answer on a shelf and focus on what can be done now. The present is where changes are made, and those changes greatly impact our future. It’s time to get you adjusted to your new lifestyle! A life that is still filled with hope, peace, love and joy. When I received my welcome letter I also received one word of advice, “don’t wait to enjoy your child”. I knew that was the foundation to our journey. It was the reality check to my envisioned life. I also knew that it was a choice that I had to make daily. I had to make up my mind to not allow food allergies to be the focus of our life but to become the best darn food allergy mom! You can make that choice too.
