Sorry for crossing into Canadian territory, but I'm having problems finding a site more local than your own. I'm sure there is an Irish or UK peanut allergy site that some of your members have come across. If so, please forward.

Hi Mike
I'm from Ireland too, and have been looking for a local site myself, but to no avail. I did find a UK site (I'm really sorry, but I don't remember what it's called), but it is not very interesting. It gives you all the relevant information, which you are probably already aware of, but doesn't have a discussion board or anything like that.
I know this site has issues which don't affect us directly, but it really is the best one I've come across.
I'll keep looking though, and if I do come across one, I'll let you know, and could you do the same for me too please?
Good luck.
Gwen

Hi Gwen and Mike,
I live in Surrey UK and have a pa daughter of 15. I had begun to wonder if there was anyone else from UK or Ireland looking at this site when I found a message from Lin.
You can find her message under support groups. She is running a support group for people with allergies, it was called Nonuts, but has undergone a name change to I think Allergy Awareness UK.
I have found it difficult to find U.K. specific information, and I too would like to see a UK based site.
I am working on the problem now.
This site is an excellent resource, and I am so grateful for all I have learned. It is different for us in the UK as we have a health service totally unlike the US and food names etc that are very different. We need to network like our US friends !

Hi I just came across your message
the UK address I found is
anaphylaxis.org.uk/
It doesn't have a discussion board which i
find fantastic, but there are a lot of
general "f a q" and details.
Hope this helps
