pI'm looking for a support group in Dallas, Texas. I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter who is severely allergic to peanuts. She went to Little Gym the other day and hugged another little girl who had just eaten peanut butter. The hives came, and I used the epi pen and rushed her to the allergist. What a nerve racking experience. She is fine now. I sure could use some friends who have kids with allergies, not only as a support group, but also as a play group./p
pIs anyone interested?/p

pC'mon! Is there nobody on this website from Texas? I'm in Dallas, and I'm really trying to get something started by way of a parents group. I'm currently contacting allergists in the North Texas area and asking them to post a flyer for the parents group in their office. /p
pEven if you are not in the Dallas area, I sure would like to hear from other Texans./p

prebekahc, thanks so much for your reply. Could you please email me with your email address so I can fill you in on my effort to start a parents group in our area? I've gotten some great response from our allergist, and have sent flyers about the new group to allergists in this area. My email address is [email]donnacowman@earthlink.net[/email]. I look forward to hearing from you./p

pHi there, or maybe that should be "Howdy". lol I'm Chris. Mommy to Meagan (2.5yo) and Matt (21mo, PA). We live in Decatur, which is about 40min from Denton. About 80mi NW of Dallas. So far, my son is the only person we know who is allergic to peanuts. We don't do the playgroup scene, but not so much because of the PA, but because we only have one car, so I only have access to it on Mons and Tues. I don't know ANYONE around here though. My mom, and that's it. All my friends I have met via egroups.com, and they all live out-of-state. I'm glad to see that there are other North Texans on here, though! =)/p

pI've just started a local parents group in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for those who have children with food allergies. I sent the following letter to every allergist in the DFW area (I got on the internet and found their addresses--it was easy), along with a flyer announcing the formation of the group. I've gotten great responses! In fact, one allergist is contacting pharmaceutical companies to help fund the group. /p
pHere's the letter I sent to the allergists:/p
pI am forming a local group for parents of children with food allergies. After learning that our two year old was allergic to peanuts, eggs and milk, my husband and I were surprised to find that the DFW area does not have a local parents/p

pHi I am a mom of a PA 3 year old daughter and I am also new to this site. I live in Houston Texas and would love to find other people to talk to. Sometimes I do feel like the only one and I could deffinitly use some support. This has been a very educational site for me and I an so glad I found it.br /
I had an experience this week trying to find a mothers day out program since my daughter has been at home since birth. I told the director that she had the PA and she said it would probably be a better idea to keep her out of a group setting because 1 out of 4 bring some kind of peanut product. I left the school so disappointed and felt helpless.br /
My daughter really wants to be around other children and didnt want to leave the school. She said as I put her in the car "Mommy, Im a kid too" yes baby I told her and cried all the way home. A friend told me to look on the computer for some information and I was so happy to see this site. Ive been reading for two days straight and I no longer feel helpless. Thanks for letting me let off some steam.br /
Glad I found this,br /

pThanks, Monica. I'll check to see if your coordinates are on the introduction board. I recently talked with a doctor from Houston about nut allergies, and would like to visit with you about it. Otherwise, can you email me at [email]donnacowman@earthlink.com[/email]?/p
pThanks, and believe me, I know just how you feel./p
