Yes.  We’re still here.  I know things have gone dark since this past food allergy awareness lighting season. It takes an enormous amount of time and energy to make it all happen, and then a while to recover. We rolled right from the lighting season into the summer fun times.  Our family has had some […] Read more...

Life is not cheap.  Expenses often include rent, a mortgage payment, insurance, utilities, medical expenses, clothing, and so on.  As a kid, my parents were not wealthy, but we had a home, food, and clean clothes that fit.  I don’t remember wanting for anything, aside from that one toy that always seemed out of the […] Read more...



We have had our share of issues in Allergyland.  We’ve been through skin and blood testing for both environmental and food allergies.  We have passed and failed, miserably failed, food trials.  We’ve had scopes and testing for this, that, and the other.  I don’t say this as a “woe is me” at all.  We have […] Read more...

Have you ever walked into a room and looked around and wanted to walk right back out?  You wonder “What am I doing here?”  I think it’s happened to us all at one time or another. Sometimes we just aren’t in the right place or the right time for whatever reason. It can shake you, […] Read more...



Getting laws changed. Enacting new regulations. Starting a global movement for X, Y, or Z.  These may be things you think of when you hear the word “advocacy,” and they are amazing efforts. But they are not the only ways to advocate. Not at all. There are many ways you can be an advocate, and […] Read more...



      I had the amazing opportunity to attend two FAACT meetings last week.  I learned so much that I could go on and on about: the amazing resources FAACT has to offer; labeling information; the latest information on OIT and quality of life for those with food allergies. I learned more last week […] Read more...
