My transcriptionists are not only good at what they do, but when they hear me talk as much as I do, it’s almost family.
I am reading a book called, Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl by Sandra Beasley, and I thought of you.
- It’s a memoir about the author’s life with food allergies, what it was like growing up with allergies, etc. She has a variety of food allergies along with environmental allergies.
- It’s not very long but it seemed like a book parents who have kids with allergies or individuals suffering from allergies in general would really be able to relate to. Good advice Stephanie!
- The author is really honest about what it’s like living with allergies but she’s humorous about it at the same time.
- The one thing that shocked me is that when the author was a teenager she thought about overdosing on Benadryl because she was tired of living with allergies. Don’t kid yourself, the quality of life in patients with allergy isn’t very good….much worse than heart disease or even diabetes.
- I think this book could help people with allergies, so they don’t feel alone. I don’t feel alone but I know I’m the only one in my family with allergies and none of them get what an allergic reaction is really like so I’m really enjoying this book.
Stephanie, thanks for the suggestion and I’m sure many of our readers will also enjoy the book. You’ll have to ask her permission to “friend”, but here’s her link—>profile.php?id=1192230038&sk=photos
