forming a community for adult-specific resources and support
I'm considering starting a livejournal community (possibly to expand into a website) specifically for adults with severe nut (and maybe general food, depending on feedback) allergies. I've been frustrated with the lack of adult-specific resources and support; I can find a million and six places with advice on how to talk to my (nonexistent) kid's teacher about epi-pens, but almost nothing on workplace accommodations, navigating bars, and the like. While I know parents of PA kids deal with a lot of similar issues, being a severely PA adult is very, very different on a practical level--and the social isolation that comes with food allergies is only amplified when you're being compared to someone's six-year-old.
So, would anyone else be interested in a group like that--Something focused on support and useful tools for navigating the world as an adult with life-threatening peanut/food allergies?
