Just to clarify......... I didn't' think the way you quoted skewed or misrepresented particular words. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Ya know [b]that[/b] kind of "out of context". I mean, literally speaking, anytime one quotes something it's "out of context" right? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Would you say it almost sounds like a _________ if you do, _________ if you don't type of thing?
I'd have a tendency to *believe* if there is a quote feature, it's "OK" to use it. Repeatedly even. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Can't remember if I've been accused of taking something out of context. Yet. You know, [i]that[/i] "out of context". But I do know I have been accused of quoting too much, posting too much, remembering too much in my posts, posting about [i]nothingness[/i], posting "off topic", posting [i]tangentially, posting too many questions, posting in a confusing manner, knowing too much in my posts, or just [i]sounding[/i] a particular way in my posts and posting in multiple syllables. Add to that some glaring spelling errors and [i]there you have it[/i], I obviously don't do things *the right way*.

...because of people like you who can't find it within themselves to ADMIT they were harsh in their responses and could have answered the question with more compassion!!!
I am done arguing with you...that was not my intent to start with. I merely wanted to point out that this board exists for support for people dealing with PA. I am not saying you can't have your own opinions. What I am saying is that there are more supportive ways to get one's opinion across. Somehow you seem to have a problem understanding that. Oh well - I tried.
Jodi, I apologize that this thread went bad (as I previously stated, it wasn't my intention). I hope you know you have my support and, again, I don't think you are being "paranoid" at all. Oh, btw, check out the thread entitled, "So irritated about EpiPen commercial..have you seen it?". This is not to make you more nervous about T-ball - just to reinforce that you have valid reasons to be concerned. Take care.

No, Mama S, it's people LIKE YOU who do not know how to read!

If you are done arguing with me, then why are you still arguing about something that has already been taken care of. Seems to me that you just want to "stir the pot".
Ok, so if you are not saying that I cannot have my own opinion, then what are you saying? That I should word everything like you and the few above because you are all perfect?? Hmmmmm. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Think that some of you people just enjoying bickering as you keep beating a dead horse!

Let's see....who is the one that is "still arguing"; who is still "beating a dead horse"? I already told you - I am done arguing with you. Geesh - let it go. If you must have the last word - fine by me...I'm done!

Sadly, I don't wonder at all.
Thanks, Mama S, for saying what I was thinking. No need for me to add anything further.

Okay I'd like to take a wack at the dead horse!
For me I can honestly say that I have been flat out PARANOID by my sons pa! In every sense of the word.Espeically when it was new to me.
How could I not be paranoid? This is my sons life we're talking about!When it first came about, I suddenly got a whole new outlook on things from day to day living to special circumstances.I thought death was lurking at every corner! I thought my eyes would never be open enough and I'd miss the small little detail that would come and bite me in the behind.
Even now when I am presented with a new situation I get paranoid. I have no problem with the word because it does fit my feelings at times.I embrace the paranoidness
that overcomes me.It is a part of pa and handleing it. For me.Thankfully it is not round the clock and everyday now [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]or I'd have went insane.I was a wreck when my sons first year of hockey was over. I'd run on high vigil for 6 months then ran on relief when he made it!
Well, that's my whack at it.

Hello ladies, noticed something here, MamaS and Kim if you are done arguing with e-mom about this then why do you keep coming back into do more arguing?
Seems to me that you are just being petty now.

Well, guys....my PA son, now 8, has played baseball since he was 4. He is a very talented ball player. He plays not only ball during the spring, but also fall ball and All Stars (June & July). Our fields are in very good condition and the dugouts are kept nice & clean. The boys are allowed to have drinks in the dugout. However, snacks/food are not allowed in the dugout. Occasionally, depending on the coach, snacks are provided AFTER the game for the kids as they leave.
Now that we have moved to a different state...I have noticed things are a lot different here with their sports. This may be something that I am confronted with this year. I try to raise Jacob to be aware of his surroundings. I also do NOT make people change themselves or their customs/habits for me. If the team/coach is accustomed to these kids eating snacks during the game then we will adjust accordingly.
This is something he will probably have to do forever. Sometimes life is not fair for him...but it never is for any of us. I do not want people always changing for him. (As an example, my church occasionally had meals after the morning service. There are times when the desserts are not safe. There are also times when there is NOT a safe dessert for him. Many times people are so embarrasses or ashamed that this boy can't eat it and they are heart-broken for him. I think it is the perfect time to teach him that he will not always get what he wants.) I want him to be safe!!! This includes not just as a child, but also as a teenager, and finally as an adult. And so I want to raise him to be allergy aware, careful, and know when it is something we can or can not change.
He is not 4 years old though. I do think you have to treat a 4 yr old a little differently...they might touch things they don't realize might be dangerous to them. Good luck and I hope your little boy enjoys his first year of ball!!!
