I have been an allergy parent now for over two years and as food allergies are constantly on the increase, I want to raise awareness and try to give other parents an understanding of just how us allergy parents feel on a daily basis and at social gatherings.  I started writing and it turned into a letter, so here it is, my letter to the friends and family of an allergy parent. Dear friends & family, The moment I realised something wasn't right with my baby I was petrified.  Being a parent was new, scary and exciting for me but becoming an allergy parent was even scarier! Every time we see the GP he has no idea what's going on and it's been like this from day one. I have to fight for special formulas, referrals to specialists and different medications to help with various symptoms.  I have to go over everything each time we go to the doctors, pediatrician, dietitian and gastroenterologist.  Being an allergy parent is truly exhausting without having to remember every detail of every symptom, what was eaten at what time and then to repeat this to various medical professionals over and over again to feel like I’m getting nowhere. So when you ask me ''what happens if he has milk?'. The last thing I want to do is explain the various symptoms because I am exhausted. I've already gone over and over it and tried my hardest to keep a...
