Hi all! I am so happy to have found this forum. We have been dealing with my son's peanut allergy for 3 years (he's now 5 now) with no support. It has been maddening at times. He has just started school (where they have to eat lunch) so it's a whole new set of challenges.

Thanks to forum members who posted great tips on finding safe baking coconut and the epipen pouch at MEC. I'm still reading all the posts but just wanted to say "hi." I feel like I have finally found people who understand my parenting challenges.

I am very glad to meet you, you will have no lack of support now. This forum is the glue between my sanity and the allergy world. :lol:
All the best with Kindergarten this year! If you need any specific school related help be sure to post on the school age forum. I have to agree, we love our MEC epipouch, that was a great find!
I look forward to getting to know you better. :huggy

Hi Jennifoo!

Glad to meet you. Quite a learning curve eh? I remember I learned about my DD's allergy. I lived in rural Alberta, and remember being really happy when I went to the agricultural office in our nearest small town at the courthouse and lo and behold - they had info on egg allergies. It was the first time I had something real to hold on to (other than the ana kit the dr had given me - boy I read those instructions over and over and then moved to town when we realized this was nothing to fool with). Oh yeah, the emerg. dr looked us in the eye, gave us a prescription for an epi-pen and said "USE IT".

BC2007 is right when she uses the word "glue" and her hugs feel great too, don't they?

I only joined this forum a short while ago and am so glad I did. What a great bunch!

Try to make time please to come and chat (or just read) my favorite thread in Advocacy and Accommodations regarding school policies.


Michele
