“I am the exception, not the rule”
“I may be the exception, but my unique journey with over 200 allergies has inspired me to make a difference. With my experiences, I aim to ensure that no one with any allergy feels alone or excluded. Together, let’s create a safer and more inclusive world for all.”
My Early Challenges
My dad died shortly after I turned 5, and the stress that I had to endure increased every day. Hindsight it was probably during this time the leaky gut started. That amount of physical and emotional stress on a child is simply too much.
As a young child, I struggled with several allergies and sensitivities, including:
- Eggs, chocolate, and milk
- Grass – Yes you read that right, I was allergic to GRASS
- Soaps and detergents
These sensitivities, combined with a predisposition to gaining weight, led to me being overweight from a young age.
I was the fattest kid in kindergarten, weighing in at a whopping 60 pounds. By grade 4, I was in the 140 range.
Middle School – A Turn For The Worse
“I was unable to fit on rollercoasters”
I went on a school trip, and on the second to last night of the school trip, I had the most delicious meal ever – soft pasta. It was creamy, filling, and perfect The next day, I experienced uncontrollable shaking that started with just a little tremor in my hands and lasted for hours.
A flight journey later, an emergency landing, blue lighted to hospital, and numerous brain scans, with no answers.
DUH! It was the wheat and dairy overload.
My Weight ballooned to 450 lbs
“I didn’t have a scale that could hold me.”
Enter the greatest doctor ever, a chiropractor. he suggested I could have a problem with gluten. I began to remove ingredients from my diet, and it wasn’t until I started to remove corn that I started to feel so much better. I tested positively allergic to just about everything. I also tested positive for having more food sensitivities than I can count. When you added it all up, there wasn’t much ingredients left.
10 years ago, I never knew this allergy world existed. Now, I’m determined to make it a better one. My dream is to make it so there isn’t another kid that gets looked over, and that we can stop these problems before they start.
