Are we alone?

At her 15 month pediatric appointment I explained to the doctor about her allergy diagnosis and asked if I could take her off the formula yet. The doctor responded with “Yes, of course; as long as you give her yogurt and stuff like that to supplement”. WHAT! ! !  2015-08-25_0020 I am pretty sure my mouth fell down to the floor. I was literally telling her 15 seconds ago that she has a dairy allergy. My gut feeling with her was that she though we were overreacting with her issues, and her comment proved she truly wasn’t invested in the actual child/case in front of her. Calmly I walked out of the doctors office, right past the receptionist, and immediately switched pediatricians. Seriously at this point we were beginning to feel a little alone in this. The pediatrician was disconnected, the allergist didn’t think her symptoms were related… are we Alone?

    I know this is an old post….your blog was just shared with me today and I have some reading to do to catch up but you are not alone!! We are going through the same struggles with our 9 month old. I have celiacs so we are not strangers to food allergies but what a trip. Doctors brush off her symptoms and tell us shell out grow it but seriously….what do we do now??? I’m interested to keep reading your blog and to learned from what you’ve discovered. Please pass along peditirician information if you have a good allergy conscience doc Shayla sees. Thanks!!!
