The holiday season means so many happy things, like vacation, family reunions, eating some of the most favorite food of the year, board games, traveling and making memories, that talking about ‘surviving the holidays’ may seem unfair.
Overall, there’s so much information about allergies and asthma, that why bother reiterating it and concentrating on the risk of ending up at the ER?
Because the N.1 rule with allergies (and asthma) is awareness. Knowledge brings power and inclusiveness, no kid or adult should feel isolated or different because he or she cannot enjoy the eggnog or the pecan pie.
Not everyone knows what a food allergy is. If you think about it, before being diagnosed, did you really know what gluten was or that lactose intolerance is different from milk allergy? What’s most important is that anaphylaxis is serious; it’s a scary-sounding word and can be life-threatening.
