Our Food Allergy Journey Continues

Its so fitting that this week is Food Allergy Awareness Week. Because I am aware and I am taking action.

Or trying to.

Its hard. I’ve been down this road before so I should know my way but I’m in denial. I was so hopeful we wouldn’t have to travel this path again.

Less than two months ago, there was light at the end of the food allergy tunnel for my son. He passed his peanut challenge. And his doctor thinks he’ll likely outgrown his milk and egg allergies within a year or two.


Then eczema reared its ugly head again.


This time on my daughter. And I feel like we are back in the dark.

If I’m honest with myself, I knew the signs the first time around. But I tried to ignore them. I didn’t want to face that reality.

I’ve been doing it again – ignoring the signs. But no more.

I’ve cut out dairy completely.

I stopped eating eggs.

I avoid nuts.

I am at a loss, though, as to how to eliminate soy and wheat, if that’s even the cause.

I’ve got three months until we can wean, although, I know the road doesn’t end there.

So we wait. And hope. And take it one step at a time.
