I am glad to have found this site. My son, Jake, had an anaphylaxic reaction after eating a peanut butter sandwich 2 weeks ago. Since then, we have had the RAST test done and it came back positive for peanuts. We are scheduled to see an allergist tomorrow.
I have been overwhelmed and having extremely bad anxiety because I feel like there is so much I don't know - things I need to know to keep Jake from ever having another anaphylaxic reaction, or death.
I am not one of those who doesn't realize how deathly this allergy is/can be because I saw firsthand how quickly it could go there. I will write about what happened under the stories topic... I need to vent!
Well, I am glad to have found this community and hope that you all can help me learn everything!
