Good Afternoon, Team mates. I have an allergy to shellfish. In the past this was not really a difficult allergy for me to deal with. Actually, it rarely affected me with family or friends, eating out or at home.

But I married a man who's family eats shellfish with the same enjoyment that my family loves fresh fruit. Needless to say, things changed.

I've had a number of reactions just by helping in their kitchen. Some crab juice casually left on a counter that looks like water. Getting a kiss on the check by my father-in-law caused a 3-day rash.

Also, there is a new trend in the food industry. Since shrimp and crab are now farmed, more restaurants are incorporating these items in a number of dishes. I don't order them, of course, but a splash of crab juice on the rim of my plate is immediately obvious. (Thank God for liquid Benadryl or a pen to the neck in emergencies.)

Anyway, I found this group and I thought I'd commune with people who understand the situation.

Glad to meet everyone, and I wish you healthy eating.

Dance with the flow of life.
