Being Yourself Is More Than Enough

Posted on May 14, 2018


"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." -Member of MyFoodAllergyTeam

Members of MyFoodAllergyTeam experience the burden of food allergies physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear 'fine' to avoid the stigma of food allergies. Other times, we experience relief and support from other parents who've been in our shoes, trying to keep themselves or their children safe and healthy. For some, striving to keep their children safe is their main focus.

"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my struggles anymore. If I'm uncomfortable at a party, I'm going to leave. Hearing from others with food allergies has taught me that I have to prioritize ME." - Member of MyFoodAllergy
Team

Here are recent conversations from MyFoodAllergyTeam:

"Finally my doctor diagnosed me as having Mast Cell Activation Disorder!!! Hopefully, the meds help! It was gratifying to finally have someone acknowledge that I have more than allergies!"

"Never assume when you're having a bad day that you have the worst of all problems. You really have no idea how much others are suffering out there in life. I need to be more grateful for all the little blessings in my life."

"Today with how I feel and today being the first day of the month, I am going to make myself find something I am grateful for. I am grateful for the foods I am able to eat."

Have you found yourself striving to appear as though you have it all together? Have you discovered ways to surround yourself with others who make you feel that you are more than enough? Share what you've learned in the comments below or directly on MyFoodAllergyTeam.com.
