Allergies

A memory has popped up on my phone today about this time last year. My husband and two daughters were on a cruise with some friends. Despite our best efforts to protect my eldest daughter, she had her worst anaphylactic shock yet. Luckily she was fine after receiving treatment in the hospital onboard.

My eldest daughter is allergic to cows milk protein and my youngest is allergic to peanuts and eggs, so eating out is always interesting!

Since dealing with the girl‘s allergies, I have come across some who don’t understand what their allergies mean. I have had comments such as ‘oh is she lactose intolerant?’ ‘oh just a little won’t hurt surely’, ‘allergens can’t pass from what a mother eats to her breast milk to abe able to affect a baby’ and people thinking that milk allergies can’t be anaphylactic.


These comments and the severity of her and my youngest daughter’s allergies have motivated me to write some books about allergies, based loosely on their journeys. I am hopeful that this will educate not only children, but adults as well, I know I myself have learnt a lot since the girls were born. I also hope that other children with allergies can relate to the books and use them to help explain to their family and friends.


I’m hoping to have at least one finished by the end of the year, but here’s a sneak preview of one of the front covers….
