Hi there AnnaMarie. I hope you're still doing well. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Thanks for stopping in. I figure I'm due for another visit in three more years, at the rate I'm going. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Ok, [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img] I believe ya [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
I haven't had time to read everything in this thread or the other that was raised and after I made my post I realized that I missed these in the first place because I think it was right before I came back to the board after having my 3rd child. You had just left and I never saw them.
Anyway, Welcome Back! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Not to be a pain, but it helps if one has lived with lions to know where lions live.
I don't have children. Therefore I have no idea. Ok. In that case, send your kids to a nut-free class, or even a nut free school, and rest your mind that they are safe. **** , you don't even have to worry about telling them that they've got an allergy yet, because they're safe in their nut-free class. Save that kind of information till their older, till you decide it might interest them. Because, after all, only your infinate experience can tell you where the lions lie, and if someone tells you there are no lions it must be true.
As much as I'd like to care about a child growing up with the same thing as I, and share what I've learned, it's parents like you who make me just not want to give a **** . I'm sure you know better. You've been there, you've seen that. I'm sure you've even experienced an anaphalectic reaction. You do know how it feels. You know how foods taste. You've seen all the foods that someone might hide things in. I apologize for thinking you might not know it all.
I apologize. I didn't realize that because I didn't have a child recently diagnosed with PA that I didn't know squat about it. Lions? What lions?
I stand corrected. And good luck.

Nah. Not sticking around. It still looks like the same environment as last time, though I thought I'd pop in and check.
The good thing is that it's not the same folks trying to tell me I have no idea, so that does encourage me, but it looks like those folks are figuring things out well enough on their own. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Maybe in another three years, I'll pop back in again..
And no. I haven't been in that magazine.. Yet. *grin*

Heh. I can't believe both heck (h.e.c.k) and **** (c.r.a.p) are four letter words here. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Anyhow.. Good luck all. I wish you all the best.

oh, LOL! [i]how little you *think* you know about me or my cubs[/i]. Interestingly enough, I think I know where the lions are. Maybe very close.....
besides, I'm not the one who used the analogy of "lions" in this thread first. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]
I'm so glad my school got to know my cubs and my family before they ever heard someone say:
[i]"In that case, send your kids to a nut-free class, or even a nut free school, and rest your mind that they are safe. **** , you don't even have to worry about telling them that they've got an allergy yet, because they're safe in their nut-free class. Save that kind of information till their older, till you decide it might interest them." Anyone here who has read *squat* about me knows that 1: I am point blank blunt. With you, with my cubs. (Not tell them about their allergy because they have a nut free or peanut free classroom????[/i]
[b]Give me a break.[/b]
I think I know how people feel when they hear the "false sense of security" argument now. LOLOLOL. Maybe you don't, since you seem to believe it. Am I wrong? Do you?
As far as anaphylaxis, maybe *you* don't know how *my* cub feels when *he* has an anaphylactic episode. I can tell you it's severe enough he wouldn't even attempt to *smell* peanut butter let alone be able to eat it. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] He's been in full blown anaphylaxis from eating fruit snacks manufactured on the same equipment as nuts and peanuts. He's also an Asthmatic.
Burning sensation on the lips? Try blistered airway from a taste of something that maybe shared the same square inch of space as something that contained nuts or peanuts.
[i]Lions to me, live much closer than you seem to think.[/i]
But whatever. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Anywhoooooooooo. I've taken care of probably far more individuals with anaphylaxis than episodes you've experienced. And not all from peanuts. Actually, *none* from peanuts. Iodine, contrast, latex, environmental allergens, excersize induced, blah blah blah, some just idiopathic. And I don't necessarily assume all lions to look like peanuts, either [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Who knows, maybe I can recognize more different types of lions than your expert self. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]
When my oldest had an anaphylactic reaction to some soup I made from scratch, guess what? My experience wasn't limited to thinking *it had* to be from peanuts or nuts, just because had an allergy to them. I did the math and figured it was [i]the lentils[/i] in the soup. Even tho he had eaten them without incident prior to that bowl of soup. Guess what? In my cubs highly individual, personal, and unique situation, given his his history, [i]I was right.[/i] Individual Mileage May Vary. His rast to lentils just about equals his rast to peanuts and various tree nuts.
How much does my cub know about his allergy? hmmmmmmmmmmmm. At age 10 he's even explained sequelae such as multisystem organ failure to his teachers.
FAH. What do you know about me? [i]Or my cubs.[/i] Pfllllllllt.
ps....cleaning up links? um... ok.
