Hi-My little boy was just diagnosed with Severe Peanut Allergy. I'm just looking for help in understanding this and encouragement that I'm not the first one to be there.

frasiers mommy-glad to see you here-thanks for joining us and for posting.
You are definitely NOT the first person to feel overwhelmed by a peanut allergy diagnosis. It can be frightening, confusing, upsetting all at the same time.
I remember when my son was diagnosed-we sort of already knew from reaction history-but hearing it confirmed-we sort of went through a grieving process. There is enough to worry about in life with our children without adding life threatening allergies into the mix.
Do what you are doing-read here-on other sites-ask questions, complain, whatever it is you need for help in getting through this.
We've all been there and I promise it will and does get easier. We are all here for you-so stick around and let us know what you need. :)
