I need a moan.

Just that really.

My DS is allergic to lots of food.

In RL I don't moan about it, just get on with it. Provide his food for ALL activities and outings. Always having to give him cuddles when he is upset he can't have something his friends are having (despite me always having alternatives).

But I don't think any of my friends really understand the constant worry and stress it causes. This weekend for example my DH had poached eggs, gave DS a cuddle and hey presto his face swells up. He has started recently reacting to beans. Something that was an easy meal for us.

Supposedly he will 'grow out of them' but this does not seem to be happening.

I sick of it. I'm sick of being constantly vigilant about what he eats, about having to fight for medication and appointments, having to meet with childcare providers to go over and over what is OK for him to do and not do. I am sick of the middle of the night hospital visits because of his breathing difficulties.

I just wish allergies would piss off.

There I feel better. Going to have a ☕️

flowers for you OP. I think that unless you have personal experience of allergies, it can be hard to understand how serious they can be and how you need to be constantly vigilant and checking everything for allergens, and how it affects everything you do. It is such a stress.
