Hi everyone!

I just discovered this board, it looks full of info and resources!
I am from Gatineau, Qc, mother of 2 girls which will turn 6 and 4 in a couple of months.
Although we were living "as is" for almost a year now, we recently received the diagnostic that my youngest, Victoria, had a severe peanut allergy.
I never had anybody in my circle with such an allergy so I will be coming here for help!!! :)

Hi from Alberta. I love Quebec, we are huge Habs fan. My husband was in Montreal to watch them win the cup back in '93. ( had to send him, as I wasn't prepared to spend the rest of my life listening to "I wished I had went"....so glad I did, it paid off) We now have the chair from the forum that he sat in. Anyhow, he liked Quebec so much that we have returned often and look forward to going again and again.We like to rent a car and drive. In fact, I'm trying to talk him into moving there for awhile when we retire. Sad to hear about your DD's diagnosis, but so glad you found this forum. Many knowledgable people here.

Michele

Dom-Vic, Welcome :huggy
Glad you found us. I know you fill find tons of useful information and support on the forum. I talk on the forum to parents of children with allergies but in real life the only connection I have personally to allergic families is our Ottawa Anaphylaxis Support group. In my own circle of friends I am also the only one with an allergic child (which is actually a good thing). This forum is my link to 'allergy sanity'. :lol:

Dom-Vic,
If there are ever products you are looking for feel free to post or PM. Hopefully I can help you locate whatever it is you need at a specific store in Ottawa. You are also more than welcome to join the OASG, there are other members from Gatineau. I mostly use the OASG web chat forum again, for locating specific products (restaurants) etc. within Ottawa.
