On Being Allergic

So, this blog isn't really for me. I'm a 30-something girl who has had allergies, asthma and eczema for her entire life. Enough with the 3rd person. I have food allergies, environmental and chemical allergies. I even have anaphylaxis.

I've had a few good specialists over the years and a health care worker for a mother, all of whom have done what they could. But, in the end, they couldn't figure everything out.

So began the process of trial and elimination. If I had known now what I knew when I was younger, I think it would have been easier. Not perfect, because it can never be, but better.

I would like to at least impart some of my experience on what has worked and not worked for me, hoping that somehow it will help some other atopical allergic person like me a little bit.
