Allergy Talk W/ Mom & Dad: What questions do you have for my parents?


This post originally appeared in July.

Each Saturday I call home, and my parents and I have a brief but honest podcast discussion about the challenges of raising a child with an allergy. I’ve never really talked to my parents about the challenges they had raising me. I’m eager to find things out. Maybe their experiences might help someone else, too.

My parents are on vacation today, which is the perfect opportunity for me to ask you two things:

1. For future podcasts, what questions do you have for my parents about their experiences raising me with a food allergy? 

2. It would be cool to have a food allergy talk with others from time to time, too. Any suggestions? I'd love to call them and have a short talk for this podcast about anything food allergy related.
