Is PA the #1 stress in your life? If it isn't, do you find that it can be the thing that just kinda sends you over the edge?

(Again, another question I needed to ask tonight rather than have it whirl around in my head, but my answer tomorrow [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] )

Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Yes! Except right this moment, it is my dd's 5th or 6th cold and her coughing in her sleep that is stressing me. becca

cindia, I am very concerned [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] What did you feel and with becca's good advice, you had to remove from your post? If you would ever like to speak with me off-the-board about something that is stressful to you that you don't feel you can post here, please feel free to contact me. I know that when I post my answer tomorrow, I certainly won't be mentioning the #1 stressor in my life [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
becca, does your daughter have asthma?
I hate the night coughing. It just makes me feel really sad for both of my children when it starts up. I had to call Jesse's school to-day at lunch to ask them to give him his asthma puffers. He seems to be catching yet another cold and we were late for the breakfast program this morning and I didn't give him his puffers (I *should* have said toss the breakfast program and done the puffers). At any rate, it's super cold here right now and certainly not good for asthmatics and I did make sure to make the call at lunch.
The cute thing was, when the principal called Jesse up to the office to get the puffers administered he wanted/needed to hear from me why he was being given puffers (he has asked for them himself at school when he has felt he needed them). I explained that we had been late this morning and that I felt he needed them twice a day right now rather than only at night and that because of the coldness of the day, I felt he should have them. I just thought it was kinda cool that he needed to hear it from Mama and not the principal.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I wouldn't say it's our #1 stressor, but it is the 'worst' thing we are dealing with in our lives.

It is more like the #1 bummer. So many of our plans have to be made around this allergy. We likely would have travelled to Florida this year but I'm nervous about vacationing in the States because of it seems so backward when it comes to this allergy.
It's easier than it was but it still stinks.

Yes, PA is a BIG stress in our lives.
My 95 year old MIL has been living with us for almost three years now. She is almost blind and deaf. She does not like me, never has. You'd think after 22 years she would have seen by now that I am a good person!!!
That is the biggest stress in our lives right not.
Oh, and to everyone, the coughing does go away. DS has asthma and most colds turned into awful awful respiratory infectons and constant coughing. He has a cold right now, a little mild sneezy, runny nose, little cough and it is about the third year now the Asthma has not grabbbed the cold and ran with it.
Take heart, some of it does get better.

I would have to say no, it does not cause alot of stress. I will add that DS has had only 2 reactions, neither of them life threatening so I think that may be the reason that it doesn't cause alot of stress in our lives.

No. Probably because I also don't have PA very severely. The biggest stress in our life used to be DH's job, but then he was laid off last year and now it is that DH doesn't have a job.
I suppose it was a case of be careful what you wish for. :P

No, it is not the biggest stress. It's more like constant background noise that sometimes gets louder, and then recedes again, but never goes away.
