Long-time Lurker, thought it was time to say hello

Publish date:
Updated on

I've been a long time lurker and thought it was finally time to say hello to everyone.

I'm in the US and my 5 year old dd has pa. Our dd has only had 1 reaction (very long ago) as we have been very careful about what she eats, reading labels, etc.

Everything now is much different than what it was when we first found out she had the allergy. We used to be extremely scared about her pa but now we are very relaxed although still very aware of everything she eats. We don't let pa run our lives.

She is very active in sports and we have never encountered any issues related to food. She is quite the little girl and I often refer to her as my princess [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Anyway, our hope is to continue for her to have a happy life and not be frightened by her allergy.

Glad to meet you all.

Welcome! Sounds like your situation is much like ours: 5 yo daughter whose first reaction at 14 months was her only one. Hope you get lots of help and support from the board.

Thanks Erik.

My wife, my princess #1, well, I completely adore her and she knows it. She gets a good laugh out of this board.

Welcome Cyberguy!

I'm glad you found us. It will be nice to have another male perspective on the board. Erik must be feeling ve-r-r-r-y outnumbered lately!

Welcome, Cyberguy!

As another one of the male minority here, it's nice to see another guy join the boards. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

DS is also 6 and currently in Kindergarten. Hard to believe the school year is almost over, and we're planning for 1st grade.

Looking forward to your posts....

Thank you Going Nuts and Nutternomore.

Yes, being a minority here, well let's just say that it makes for interesting conversation as there are many emotions strewn about.

Hi Cyberguy,

Well I'm in a minority too - but not the male kind!! Female through and through I'm afraid, but I'm from Scotland, which puts me in a minority all of my own....!!!

Hope you get as much out the boards as I do,

Scotland, what a beautiful place!

See you around on the board.
