It is with great delight that I introduce my friend Saaraa. This is a special post: Living With Food Allergies – Saaraa’s story. Saaraa isn’t a blogger, she’s a SAHM living in New York with her husband Neil and her 2 beautiful children Hannah 8, and Adam 3. Saaraa’s daughter Hannah has severe food allergies, and I asked if she would share her day to day experiences and what it’s like living with food allergies. This is Saaraa’s story.
Living With Food Allergies Resources
My resources at the time for my daughter was very limited, but my first is faith!
You just have to hold on to hope. It has helped me a lot when I felt so alone. When I felt that family, friends, schools didn’t understand how I was feeling. No matter what you believe in, hold on to what makes you feel safe and strong.
Not every family member will understand, but there’s always a few. They are the ones who will be there for you when you need them the most.
The internet is a big help. It has come a very long way. Eight years ago there was not much I could find. But now social media has a lot. One of my favorites is Kids with Food Allergies. It’s an amazing website. There are so many families talking about their experience. This site has helped me the most!
Whole Foods Market
Whole Foods is amazing it has so many products that not many places have. It’s definitely more expensive sometimes a bit EXCESSIVE, but it’s the only place I could get supplies for my kids.
And my last resources is our allergist. You have to find the best Dr for your family. Ours is Dr. Mark Sicklick he’s AMAZING. We have been working with him for 7 years now, and I will not change anything about him.
