Hello All,

I am so glad to have found this board relatively early in my journey through this world with a PA DD. Her name is Chandler, age 4. We just starting finding that she was PA in Oct. 2005 (thought her first strong reaction was a fluke); but soon had confirmation when she had a full-blown anaphylaxis attack in November!

Chandler has two older brothers ages 20 and 9 that are asthmatics. Along with the anaphylaxis, Chandler was also diagnosed as a silent asthmatic; meaning she's had it all along but the allergies just brought it to light.

I am glad to be here with this awesome support and wealth of information that I have found while lurking around for the past few weeks. We are in Chesterfield. Already noted that I have a few "neighbors" on the board. I look forward to chatting with some of you real soon as I need guidance in how to handle the upcoming school issues and getting a 504!

God Bless,
