I am a prisoner to this allergy. I live in a bubble where avoidance is possible and safe. I can’t leave my bubble without feeling unsafe. I spend too much time and mental energy on avoidance when I’m outside the bubble and it is completely exhausting. If I’m lucky I bring one of my angels with me to keep me safe and sane.
If you have a kid with ANA you absolutely need to empower them to advocate for their health and safety so they can avoid, but you should also try to lower their risk. How to do that? I don’t know, but for me, I’ve been waiting 49 long years for OIT.
