smack, you may be onto something here. I also noticed that Lisa's posts on this thread seem so different from her others. Pardon me for saying so, and I truly mean no disrespect, but I was thinking that perhaps she has a personality disorder or some other type of mental problem. (I am truly serious; I am not making light of mental illness.) Your idea makes equal sense and could be correct.

Have you really read any of these posts? I still don't understand why you think this young man is ill-prepared. I really can't imagine how you got that impression, unless you have jumped to a very erroneous conclusion, and dug your heels in rather than admit a mistake.
This truly is becoming quite bizarre.

I think what we are getting is that you feel compelled to tell us how we've been handling things all wrong.
To my PA.com friends, I'm behind you 100%, trying like heck to respect everyone's right to blurt their own truths.
Peg, you sound like a devoted mother, helping, not hindering Paul. Best of luck, and I hope you will keep us up-to-date on Paul's progress through college.

Hi Peggy - I have a 14 year old son who is tree nut, peanut, coconut, egg, milk and shellfish allergic. Like your son he is in advanced classes and earning high A's. I'm certain college is in his future and I'm looking to learning from you and your son how to successfully navigate college. Like you I plan to model for him the kinds of preparations he needs to make to continue the transition to adulthood safely. My son being a boy, being a teenager, being asthmatic on top of being anaphylactic to peanuts puts him in an extremely high risk group of danger. There are so many new and exciting changes at 18 and I will gladly offer as much support and wisdom as I can but encourage independence at the same time.
Does anyone remember the college freshman (in Michigan maybe?) who posted here about a year and a half ago? I thought his username was something like "quinopio" but couldn't find old posts. It would be really helpful to hear from someone who's been there recently with like concerns (and his parents!). Good luck and keep us posted!

She seems to want to stir up controversy by being critical of others.
The members will no longer pay attention to her postings as ZERO members have agreed with the way she has been presenting her points by attacking the parenting of another member:
Lisa wrote "Does anyone "get it" yet?" Well...
Peg541, Cynde, Syd's Mom, Nutcase, River, Helenmc, Cindy, CVB in CA, mae, Going Nuts, California Mom, becca, Kim M, MommaBear, Claire, synthia, katiee, DebO, Dawn, erik, Jana R, and Smack [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I think we all get it that she is the one out of sync with everyone else as not one person agrees with her as the way she is posting is not polite to the other members due to her personal attacks. If she is not happy with our postings at PA.COM maybe she should join a different support group.
And what's so bad about him baking his own cookies anyway? Much safer than buying store bought ones that may contain traces of peanuts.

Lisa, I "get" that you are concerned about Paul, but what I don't "get" is why you have decided that he is unprepared to face the world. Maybe your perspective has been colored by the story you related about N, but I think you have made a huge and unjustified leap of logic based upon the information you were given. And for you to say the things that you have about Paul and his parents based upon that leap of logic is just not right. It's simply a matter of how you are expressing yourself, and how you are treating other posters who have come here for help and advice.
[And a big "hee" to eric for his cookie comment.]

TO THOSE IN THE PA.COM FAMILY. not including LisaM.
I just highlighted and deleted my current thoughts on this post. But only out of respect for Chris and this site. oooboy. you owe me a pat on the shoulder Chris. And maybe a bottle of Shiraz. I prefer that none of you ever see the business end of my wit. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] i did save it to read over and over again, though.
PS LisaM: Just how fast after your son reached age 18 DID HE HEAD FOR THE MILITARY???? I would be interested to know.
