What's more disappointing than the doctors dismissing me? My mom dismissing my airborne nut allergy. For whatever reason, even though it's happened for over a year now that if I breath in nut particles I get trouble swallowing and breathing and stuff.

My parents even saw it at a family gathering at Easter. But my mom assumed it was something I ate earlier. But I know my body and they got bad in the presence of nuts. I had to leave the room just now because my aunt is making peanut brittle right now and I started having trouble swallowing and breathing so I went in the other room so it wouldn't get worse. I didn't tell my aunt but I am sure my aunt knows what my mom thinks about it and dismisses me too. Prayers for protection. I'm at my aunt's house for a family holiday party and I know everyone will eat some and if they breath on me I'll get the same symptoms or worse.

What I don't get is she believes me about all my other health issues except that. I can't eat anything processed with nuts and I know I get worse breathing in nuts. Yet she still believes that it's something else. I guess my throat has to close before she will believe me...

Perhaps show them this? My family doesn’t believe me either, & just thinks I’m being ‘dramatic’ when I have to inject myself with an Epi-Pen
