pB's Mom; I remember all too well the feelings of despair when I first learned the severity of this allergy. That was over a year ago. It gets better with time and with equipping yourself with knowledge. You begin to feel more in control and you are not so much groping in the dark so to speak. I'm glad to hear that the support group was so helpful. I was hoping someone would post a positive note about it. Do you know if they are meeting again next month as it is July 4th holiday weekend. Don't they meet the first Monday every month? Thank you for your post and good luck./p

pHi! I am looking for a support group close to my house. I live in Middlesex County. I'm hoping I can find other parents with children my son can make friends with. I had to quit working to stay home with my son when we found out he had PA. Other than that I am just hoping to find other people who I can talk to about this. Halloween is coming up and I don't know how I'm going to do it this year. Do I make him watch from the window?/p
