My Life Journey Living with Multiple Allergies:

Over 21 years ago. That was the last time I was given a box of chocolates. Changing your life to accommodate life-threatening allergies takes up so much of your time and energy that you don’t realise the little things – like not receiving flowers or chocolates anymore.

A few weeks ago, my daughter came home with this beautiful box of gluten-free and dairy-free chocolates! She had been interviewing a team at All Souls College about their homemade cleaning products and she mentioned my health. They took her on a short tour of the college grounds and just before she left they handed her this box – for me!! I was so touched, there were people I’ve never met but they were so sympathetic to my situation that they wanted to send a small gift.

They’re a mix of raspberry and orange flavoured chocolate set in a case made of rolled oats.

Such a small gesture made me feel so special.

We often forget that people living with allergies have to deal with them every single day. We don’t get a day off. So when a total stranger can recognise that and act in kindness it reminds us that there are considerate people out there.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.

  1. It is so true that strangers can be the most compassionate about food allergies! I was meeting with an old work colleague who had lactose friendly milk waiting for me. I felt a bit guilty admitting I am not lactose, rather have an allergy to milk protein. But just the fact that they had tried! I’m glad to read about your experience with the chocolates. Hope they were wonderful!

    1. Thanks so much, they were really tasty not like any other vegan chocolate I had tasted before. I know when you’re not lactose intolerant you tend to feel guilty admitting that you’re allergic It’s nice when someone do try to make an effort that’s all we need a little bit of compassion. Thanks for reading my post.
