This site is such a great resource! My son has a severe PA and my husband and I have been looking for a site that would be helpful in dealing with this deadly allergy. It can be overwhelming at times, but I have found this site to be very helpful!!!! I have picked up tips and also got the names of some good books. I am also new to the web and have searched for a good site but have not found it until recently. This has been a god send!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

pWelcome also! I've been on the "net" for 3 months and found this site about 3 weeks ago. I have one warning though - it can be both addictive and/or obsessive! It's such a great site and so much caring, support, sharing, and information is going on that we all have thirsted for for so long, it's wonderful. So welcome, and enjoy. Just don't stay up 'til the wee hours of each morning posting!/p

dear chrissy,
welcome !
I am from the UK, and have a son of 6 with allergies.
How long did it take for you to see an allergist?
Have you contacted the anaphylaxis campaign ? Or allergyUK?
They have lots of info that can help.

[img][/img]Welcome! There are plenty of newbie parents to PA here, just like you. We've known about my son's allergy for 5 years now, (he's 7.) It has gotten a lot easier for us, as I'm sure it will for you.

Welcome, mattchrismom!! We are here for you! This site and everyone involved have been my source of inspiration, the shoulder I've needed to cry on, and the absolute greatest resource on peanut allergy in the world. My daughter is 8 yrs. old & peanut allergic. With knowledge and education you will learn how to deal w/ food allergies. Read the boards, check out the search engine for topics and be sure to post. Mostly remember that you are your child's best advocate and it isn't always going to be easy to educate others about this issue, but never give up! BTW, be sure to check out the info on vaccine/cures (IgE Trials) for peanut allergy that are underway (Research board here). There is hope! "Until there is a cure, education is the key". Also, be sure to join FAAN (the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network) and support PeanutAllergy.Com if you haven't done so already by becoming a member. Together we are strong and being heard. Also, look into 504 Plans by searching the School boards here (wasn't sure how old Matthew was??).
Stay Safe,
