    hey, our son will be coming to UND in the fall as a transfer student. He will be starting (soon) a modified atkins diet-we found out he has an abnormal eeg when he had a seizure in his sleep and broke his arm. Anyway, keeping carbs very low MAY help reduce or get him off seizure meds, in time.
    Are you still a UND student? Great to read this on your blog! thank you!

    Hi – I would love to chat! I have never met anyone who is airborne to dairy like my daughter is. She is 7 and we are having one hell of a battle to get her accommodated at school.

    • Chef Froggie says:

      I’m going to honestly say I don’t feasibly see a way for her to be safely accommodated in a public or private elementary school with an airborne dairy allergy. 😦 With that said though, I grew up homeschooled (not due to food allergies) and I loved just about every minute of it. I loved how we could adapt the curriculum to be something that was a match for my learning style (visual) and I could do a bunch of cool projects and learned a ton from them in addition to reading a ton and really learning a whole bunch for the joy of learning, not to cram info in my head to spit it back out on a test. When I first got to college, an older student told me that it’s the homeschoolers who did better at that school. 🙂

      Also, you should look into getting a service dog for your daughter that would alert you to trace amounts of dairy in her environment to help keep her safer. (Check out Allergen Detection Service Dogs)

    I’m a teacher and my youngest child has airborne anaphylaxis to foods and some random environment things. It is a very tough situation. Despite my tears and hours upon hours of 504 meetings to make accomodations for my child and keep him safe with people I know and have worked with for years, he was still exposed to allergens and had a terrible anaphylactic reaction on Dec. 19th after school parties. For six and a half hours he was unresponsive. I don’t know where to begin with the school and their disregard for his health. I’m not sure I’ll send him back or ever trust anyone to care for him. As much as I want him to feel like a ‘normal’ kid and be a part of regular kid activities – he just can’t safely. Homeschooling is becoming a very real decision. I want him to have a future.

    • Chef Froggie says:

      So sorry to hear about your experiences! I actually grew up homeschooled, but not due to my food allergies. Everyone would ask, “but how do you socialize??!” Haha. We homeschoolers know how to socialize pretty well! Once you get into the homeschool world, you’ll meet others and you won’t be on your own. Hang in there.

    I want to thankyou for writing about your experiance. Two years ago my husband had a horrible allergic reaction and went into anaphylactic shock. Since then he has not been quite right. He he struggles with memory loss, he a hard time with processing to the point he is not able to work. He is being seen by a neurologist. I am so glad read about your experiance because when we go to my husbands next appointment i am going to mention to the Dr my husbands allergic reaction. Again i cant thankyou enough for sharing your experiance.

    • Chef Froggie says:

      Glad I could help you guys out. I think memory and processing issues are not talked about enough post anaphylaxis. People think it’s no big deal. Or that it’s due to something else. But I actually have been rather surprised at how many people I’ve talked to about it who admit they’ve been struggling a lot too post a major reaction. Your husband is not alone.

      • Rebecca says:

        I think its a big deal. My husband is unable to work because of his memory and processing issues. I am going to fight for answers. We have two special needs children that love there daddy. He gets so frustrated because he cant do the things he used to with them. I am defifinitly going to share our experiance. Its been two years and its not getting better but worse. I wish dr would listsen and know about the effects of anaphylactic shock. Thank you again.

      • Chef Froggie says:

        I hear you. I’m finally doing better, though there are still days that are more of a struggle, and I especially struggle more again for awhile after a reaction (I’ve had several since writing that post). It’s going to be a fight to improve. My neurologist told me I’d have to work at it. I worked some with luminosity, some other stuff as well, but right now my job actually gives my brain a workout of remembering things and where they are in the bookstore. I’m constantly learning and I keep fighting. Oh, one other thought that might help, have you heard of Sport Stacking? It’s a real sport. Trust me. But it’s also reallllly good for strengthening the brain and helping with processing. Go check out speedstacks.com
        And, feel free to shoot me an email if you have other questions. I don’t update this blog as often as I’d like, but I do stay active in the food allergy community on twitter (@gf_froggie).

    Btw i homeschool my children. If we arent careful we would not be home at all with all of the kids social events my kids have and field trips. We homechool our children who have special needs and food allergies. They are on a very strick diet. Gluten free, dye free, limited sweets( candy) they can have all the fruit and veggies they like. I am so glad i found this page i dont feel so alone anymore. Thank you again. We really appreciate you taking the time to do this and respond so quickly blessing to you for all you do.

    This has nothing to do with allergy. I read the FROGGY blog telling how vital gluten is made so I decided to try it.I followed the directions.I put the glob in the oven to dry it and there was a very white and very hard plastic like bottom. With a small os tan stuff on top. What did I do wrong? what the heck is that hard plastic stuff
