This is a massive achievement for me and I’m so proud. I have always dreamed of being a writer, ever since I was a small child and documented my aspirations in my teenage diaries. Sadly, then, I was not really encouraged to follow that dream and never had the confidence in my ability, but I got there in the end.
It was like a huge dose of therapy writing this book and I learnt so much through the writing process. It helped strengthen my own resilience and acceptance of being at risk from anaphylaxis and made me even more determined to be push for change. There are still so many people who just don’t understand how serious anaphylaxis can be which always amazes me.
As long as I’m still being asked questions like these I still have work to do:
So how bad is it really? What happens to you if you eat a peanut? How many nuts can you eat? A little bit is OK though isn’t it?
I really need people without allergies to stop saying they’re allergic, especially if they cement these misunderstandings above by claiming an allergy and then eating the milk laden pudding, taking an antihistamine before eating or explaining how they risk eating their allergens sometimes because it’s not that bad! Please educate yourself and stop doing this! Now! People are dying because we don’t take allergies seriously, especially in food service establishments.

I wanted to give something back to you guys as I know not everyone can afford to buy a book and many of you are struggling to make sense of your diagnosis. It is difficult to make that leap from finding out you could be at risk from anaphylaxis and learning to own it, live with it and feel totally confident to move forward in life positively. It can be overwhelming for both you and your child.
