    Hello, all!

    My kids and I have a variety of allergies ranging up to anaphylactic food reactions and EoE. Recently, my husband (and his sister, states away!) developed a very obvious birch pollen OAS reaction. It's been hard on my husband getting used to avoiding foods, because he never had to when we all did. His OAS extends from apples/cherries/typical fruits to raw almonds, too, so we've started baking them in granola or chex mix...seems to be enough to keep it safe and enjoyable for him.

    I blog on all types of our food reactions and diet issues at foodallergypantry.weebly.com, and I'm excited to participate more here at Freedible, too!

I think maybe we are too hard on my husband. And maybe it's harder in one sense; even though his OAS won't send him to the ER with anaphylaxis, he remembers how good apples, cherries, and peaches are and misses them. My daughter's never had ice cream or pizza and doesn't see what the fuss is about them. What a twist...  More ...

      I think that's certainly harder when you develop something as an adult. Otherwise, you don't miss what you've never had. We wish him the best of luck I think that's certainly harder when you develop something as an adult. Otherwise, you don't miss what you've never had.
