pHi all! I just found this area of the board! I had not realized that there were quite a few people from Virginia. I live in Chesterfield County and my daughter is supposed to start school in the fall. I am terrified. I really am interested in knowing if there are any support groups currently in progress. If not is there anyone interested in starting one or even talking on the phone. My email is [email]shawnbeth@home.com[/email] if you would like to contact me. Thanks so much!!/p

pJana - Looking at that group's website, it seems to be focused on what I would call food sensitivity or intollerence, rather than "true" (i.e., IgE mediated) allergies./p
pFrom their mission statement:/p
p"The main focus of the support group is for children with learning and/or behavior problems due to allergies and nutrition." /p
pI also didn't see anything on the website warning parents of the danger of anaphylaxis./p
pNot that I discount the possible serious impact of nutrition on behavior, but it bothers me when "allergy" is used to describe both the potentially fatal physical reaction and more chronic behavioral issues. It makes it harder to get others to understand about the dangers of anaphylaxis./p

pHello All,/p
pI 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!/p
pChandler 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./p
pI 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!/p
pGod Bless,/p
pPS-I also posted this on the introduce yourself page./p
