Need for Adult PA Support

I am a 44 y/o recently single woman in the Boston area with TN & Oral Allergies. Most of the support groups here focus on PA children and parents of PA children. Is ANYONE interested in an adult support group for those adults suffering with food allergies? The issues we face as adults are similar to those of children but, many are quite different. I am at my wits end and need adult support. I started an "Adult Topic" section but, it is at the bottom of the list here and maybe that's because there are fewer adults here as members. Is there anyone else struggling as an adult sufferer who can relate? Please feel free to email me at [email]cdesign99@yahoo.com[/email]

Thanks for listening. This is very frustrating to deal with.

Hey there! I'm 22 and have dealt with this all my life. Since 99 I have had three major reaction and like you find little adult support. I would love to join you in getting an adult peanut allergy sufferer perspective.

Dec. 28, 2006 I JUST found this! It's been quite a while and I am AGAIN actively trying to start an Adult Support group in the Boston Area. An email to [email]cdesign99@yahoo.com[/email] is the best way to contact me.

Please pass this information on to any other Adult with PN/TN or other serious food allergies.

hi Christine,

If you check the Adults Living with PA area, recently we did a "ROLL CALL" (I'll reraise). We have quite a few adults on here, some lurk (just read) and some post a lot. I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout of the roll call...so I think a few questions or topic starters will help get people talking.

Anything in particular you are needing support on? Wait...don't reply here, reply in the Adults area [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I want to keep this post active. I have replied to Christin via e-mail. I am very interested in an adult group in the Boston area. This is a very underserved need!

Just FYI... This is a for-fee group therapy group run by Christine's therapist in Marblehead.

I was hoping for a peer-run support group. I am willing to organize one if anyone is interested in getting together with other adults with food allergies in the metro Boston area. This is a big need for a lot of us and simply isn't out there (no, the groups for parents are NOT the same thing since the concerns are so different).

If anyone's interested in a support group or a penpal, please let me know. Thanks.
