Hi,

I am so glad that I found this board! We just confirmed 2 days ago that my 20 month old DS has a PA. I have just begun to read up on all it entails, and I must say, I am a little overwhelmed. I think I have already gone through the 'Why my son?' stage and am now in the 'Okay, let's figure out how to manage it' phase. There is definitely lots to learn! Perhaps, all of you experienced parents or PA sufferers would be able to give us new persons some words of wisdom, or advice that you live by, or have learned in your experience. So far, I was able to learn (with great relief) that Nestle Canada makes 4 types of chocolate bars in a 'peanut free' environment....thank you Nestle, my son can still eat Smarties!

Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and once again say how happy I am to have found this board. It is so nice (and comforting) to talk/write with people who are experiencing the same thing you are!

I just wanted to add that I noticed alot of Canadians post on this board. I was reading some posts from people who live in the Toronto area. I live just outside Toronto and it feel so great to hear that Loblaw's or Fortino's has a nut-free section of baked goods! I think I am going to learn so much here!
