Did you ever get any responses? I am new to this board and in your geographic area. I am particularly interested in support group for my son in future when older and myself in dealing with public school system.

I am new to this allergy thing and live in the south bay Blossom Valley area. My 18 month old had her first peanut reaction a few months ago and we are starting to feel overwhelmed with all the info and things you have to watch out for. She had her first visit with the allergy doctor today. They did a RAST test, we should know the results within a week or two. I would like to be involved in a support group, I am already seeing how people take this allergy for granted, and I am not feeling comfortable leaving my daughter with anyone. Please email me or post on the board. Thanks in advance.

I have been hearing from quite a few people who live in the San Jose area and are
interested in getting together to discuss living with PA and the possibility of starting a
support group. I have a 6 year old with PA and I am 36 and have lived my entire life with
this allergy. We will be planning a first meeting within the next few weeks. Please
contact me if you are interested! Cynthia
