To start, just want to clear up, I can spell, and I’m not a hyphen junkie, the – in This Happ-y Mumma is a play on my surname, Happ 🙂
It has taken me some time to really focus on the ‘about the blog’ side of things.
When I started this blog I thought I would run it as a catchall type of space, where all of the day to day parts of our lives can have their little spot out there in “webland”.
Our now 3yo daughter was diagnosed with multiple life threatening food allergies at 6 months, after she had an anaphylactic reaction to milk at 5 months of age.
Since then my life, and my husband’s, has been consumed for want of a better word, by food allergies.
We were thrown in the deep end, with not much information, no real support in place, and with the information that certain foods could possibly kill our child! (I will delve into the whys, wherefores and whatevers of our life since our daughters anaphylactic reaction soon.)
I want this blog to serve a few purposes:
- to connect with other food allergy families
- to discuss and to brainstorm ideas about food allergies
- to provide valuable information and resources for families who have been thrown in the deep end like we were back in December 2012
- to get ‘stuff’ out of my head about allergies, not to vent, but to share, ok to vent probably too!
So for now, the above is my “about the blog” blurb, I hope you’ll stick around for the ride! If you’re after a bit more info on me, zip on over to the About Me page for a quick read.
I would love to hear from anyone else out there navigating their way through the minefield that is food allergies! Feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
