I'm sure they didn't mean it like that  :heart:


FA can be a burden ... physical, emotional, financial, etc.  Most here would love life without food allergies.  They are trying to study FA  ... trying to help us ... trying to lessen that burden.

Still. Hoping for more awareness and a better future will come of events like this.  FARE does some amazing work.
