I just came across this website and am so happy that I did. We found out my son had a PA at 14 months. What a scary experience. Now, I have so many concerns and questions. I'm glad I found a place gain some knowledge and share with others.

Sorry your son has a food allergy. How old is your son now? How did you find out he had PA?
This can be a very helpful site and the people here very helpful.

Sorry for the allergy. But it is managable and you find a comfort zone after a while. you will also change that comfort zone as your child grows.
this is a great web site.

My son is now 16 months old. We found out he had a PA through a PB&J sandwich. I was unaware of introducing PB until 2 (and feel so guilty about it). He ate two bites, broke out in a rash and hives, then off to the ER we went. He was later tested diagnosed with the PA. It is a bit overwhelming, but I'm learning so much from this site already. Thank you for the warm welcome.

Welcome ethansmom and thanks for joining us!
My boys are now 6 and 5. They are 17 months apart. My oldest has all the food allergies. My youngest has NONE! Boys are great fun. :)
Things will get easier for you in time. I'm sorry to hear you are dealing with a difficult family. Give them time, help in educating them, and hopefully they will come around.
I'm glad to hear you want to help with the community. If there is one thing I've learned out of this whole food allergy thing is that there are a LOT of great people within the community. I've made some wonderful friends.
Just be sure that you take time out for yourself. Don't make food allergies your whole life. It can get overwhelming--especially when the kids start school. For now take it one day at a time.
