Although I've known for quite some time that I have nut and peanut allergies, it has only been in the last two years that they have become severe and very scary. I am 45 years old and have been doing a lot of research on the topic. I was happy to find a place to share and learn.

I've already learned a lot of new things from this website and look forward to spending more time here.

Welcome. I am sure your joining the board will give hope to many members that our kids with food allergies can grow into adults who handle the challenges of living with food allergies. Sorry yours seem to be getting worse.
Anyway welcome.

Hi missholly, I'm sorry to hear that your PA/TNA has worsened. We are the same age, by the way! I have a 10 year old daughter with PA/TNA. She is not growing out of it, and she will more than likely be an adult with PA/TNA one day like yourself.
I have learned a lot from this board and from other boards out there. What kind of precautions do you currently take? For example, do you eat out, call food manufactorers, etc.? We used to eat out, but we've cut way back on that after some scary episodes.
