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.
