For those of us who grew up with nut allergies
Do you think we should start a topic on this board or in the main discussion board about growing up with this allergy?
What I mean by that is the different stages we went through?
ie. As children how we told adults we had this allergy or how we told them we were in trouble?
Did we go through stages of food avoidance or aversion?
Trust issues? sibling problems? not taking it seriously? Teenage defiance stages?
me, I went through stages of paranoia (everything was nutty), food aversion, Lying (saying that I just didn't like a food instead of explaining my allergy), sibling rivalry (brother threatening to tie me up and force feed me peanut butter), and I went so long without a reaction that I got complacent.
I don't know I just thought it may help some parents on the board with pa/tna children to understand their child a little better from people who dealt with it as children.
If you think this might be a good or bad idea, or want to add or clarify questions, please respond
