An action plan for living with life threatening allergies.
(Previously called The Reluctant Allergy Expert – How to kill the fear that anaphylaxis could kill you)
Living with one or multiple life threatening allergies or caring for someone who has them can be terrifying, relentless and exhausting.
Every aspect of life seems to be driven and controlled by you or your child’s allergies.
‘Anaphylaxis – The essential guide’ was written to help you understand fully what and why allergies occur and give you all the tools and techniques you need to live a full life, despite these challenges and limitations.
The psychological impact, the fear of an anaphylactic reaction and the very real trauma and memories of past experiences can cause long lasting and difficult mental health issues. I’ve struggled with panic attacks, anxiety and depression about my own reactions and I wanted to share the experiences and steps I took to wrestle back control over my life.
It hasn’t been easy, but I’ve learnt so much about how to advocate for myself and others, in all areas of my life and I hope this book will help many to live a full life an take back some of that control. Don’t be ashamed of your allergies – Own them!

Reviews would be lovely…
I hope you enjoy reading it and find it useful. Please, please write me a review on Amazon if you find my book helpful, it’ll help me sell more books and help more people find it too.
I also have an author page on Goodreads so if you use this website please also consider reviewing on there too. Just a few lines about how it helped you.
Please let me know what you thought on Instagram, my social media channel of choice @whatallergy
Share your book selfies too, I want to see my book babies going out into the world and am planning to create a book selfie collage.
Every review means so much. It helps others find the book, it helps rankings on Amazon and will mean I get a little income to help me keep writing and blogging. I’ve not earned any money from the book yet, this is not a moan or a plea, it’s just the state of authors in the UK. Amazon, the publishers, the editor and everyone else gets a cut before the author sees a penny so all reviews are most helpful.
