FPIES

FPIES Foundation

Sometimes a hug from another allergy mom is really what I needed. What a relief to have a trusted resource on the web for all the information we need. Sharing with those that are ‘walking in the same moccasins’ gives me the courage I need. I cry every time I watch that FAP video. It’s powerful! Will we ever be able to not worry? Those power emails are saving me. I just can’t keep up with all the current info. I don’t know what I would have done without MOCHA. You really are the source for food allergy Cliff notes! I feel relieved to be able to laugh and cry with others like me. How did you do this without a support group years ago? Does this get easier? I have to admit, I’m really glad Anne and Denise went through this with their kids before me. How do I make a cake with no milk and eggs? Do any fast food places have anything safe? I enjoy the “Cheat and Eats” because we have no allergenic foods in my house. Thanks for training me with the Auvi-Q and Epi-pen. I feel more confident knowing I at least know what to do with the “real thing. So I’m really NOT crazy? I was so excited to find a resource for moms like me and my food allergic child. Where do I find… How can we travel? How will we ever send our food allergic child to college? DATING?!!? I need more info on OIT… Can you connect me with a doctor that… I enjoy the comradery at the Conferences, Walks and Luncheons.
