Allergy Support Group – Wed 14th March – 7 till 9pm

This evening, Wednesday March 14th from 7pm until 9pm, I’m hosting my first ever Allergy Support Group near Wendover in Buckinghamshire.

This Allergy Support Group is in association with The Anaphylaxis Campaign who have kindly advertised the event to their members but anyone is welcome to attend, not just those who have joined the campaign.

The evening will be an opportunity to meet others who either live with or have a child living with allergy and to share experiences and advice in an informal environment.

Hopefully it will be the first of many and will give support to those struggling on with allergies alone or newly diagnosed with lots of questions.

I hope to invite along dieticians or specialists to some meetings so that we can all learn something along the way.

If you would like to attend please email: ruth@whatallergy.com for further details.

  1. A huge thank you to Rick and Sharon for coming to the first Allergy Support Group last week. It was, let’s say, an intimate affair. I need to make more effort to get people along next time. Posters in the library and hospital surgery were not enough. Or perhaps the people of Bucks don’t need one… Would you like at attend an Allergy Support Group in the Bucks area? Near Aylesbury? If you do let me know and I’ll make sure you are informed about the next one. Email ruth@whatallergy.com for details.

  2. Hi Ruth. I run the Hertfordshire Allergy Support Group with the Anaphylaxis Campaign. I’ve only had one meeting thus far and our second one is in July.

    My biggest fear is that one day it’ll be me talking to myself and the four walls. Eek!

    • HI Madison – lovely to hear from you. Four comments in on day too! Very nice. How did your first one go? Only one couple came to the first one I did despite quite a few bookings. I wasn’t sure whether it was going to work out but had four at the second one so a good mix of different experiences, views and allergies. So far it’s only been parents of kids with allergies but I want to make everyone welcome at my meetings. I don’t have kids and have found that most support groups are for parents. I need more support than the people coming along though – they don’t realise how much they all help me! He he. Keep up the good work and good luck with the next one. Let me have the details and I’ll post on here and my facebook page.

      • Hi Ruth. For the first meeting I had 9 people turn up. All but one of them was a parent of an allergic child. The next meeting is in July and thus far I have 19 confirmed attendees. Purely because I have a couple of medical speakers coming to the meeting. All the attendees are parents to allergic children because the medical speakers are from the Hertfordshire NHS paediatric allergy clinic. I think you’re right in that it’s mostly parents seeking help for their allergic children who attend support groups. I wonder why that is?

        Thanks for offering to promote the next support group meeting. That would be fantastic and very much appreciated. I’ll email you the poster. It has all the details on it. Off to find your email address.

        Madison
