Writer looking for input from young adults and college students
Chris has given me permission to request interviews from the membership here on occasion, thanks for any help you can provide.
I'm a writer (and mother of a 9-year old PA girl) looking for input from young adults (say 21 to 25) who can give 'been there, done that' advice to today's severely allergic teens. Stories about how you find your allergy easier to deal with as an adult than as a teen (i.e., perhaps you're not so hesitant to ask servers about ingredients in restaurants) or any stories you want to contribute are welcome.
I'm also looking for input from college/university students, present or recent. Was it an easy or hard transition for you, allergy-wise? Did you feel confident in your ability to handle things on your own or was it a rude awakening of sorts?
