“What’s a Food Allergy Mom Army“, you ask? It’s what happens when you ask your twitter friends about air travel and Epi Pens. I was served with an onslaught of what would later become known as nagtweets, demanding that I get a 2nd Epi Pen, and that I carry it on the plane, not in my luggage. Most all of my replies were from moms of kids with food allergies, some with food allergies themselves. Even though I bet we’re around the same age, I had an instant army of adopted moms looking out for my well-being.
I’ve received advice & support on food allergies from other sources on the web, but they’ve increased exponentially since I’ve joined Twitter. Now, I use twitter to keep in contact with other friends, and to follow fun stuff like music, Star Wars, Fringe, & local Pittsburgh stuff… but it’s definitely my go-to resource for Food Allergy support. That’s support on many levels… whether it’s information, advice, or sympathy.
So, if you’re on Twitter, and you have food allergies, check out my allergies list, and the #FoodallergyMomArmy will eventually make themselves known. (Maybe the’ll even comment here.)
