Looking to chat with others who have children with eczema & allergies
Hello, my name is Jody and I am the mother of three and have 2 grandchildren. I came across this site in search of others who have a child or children with the same or similar issues as my son Keagan.
I am a 43 year old 44 in November mother of a 25 year old son, 21 year old daughter and a 3 year old (Keagan). Oh an I must not forget my two little grand babies, Caleb 4 and Chloe 2... Wow a lot right.
am divorced from my older two children's father for about 13 years now,
and I am and have been with my son Keagan's dad for going on 12 years.
We are not married by my choice, but committed just the same. We have
Keagan who was, lets just say not expected or planned and as a matter of
fact I found out when I went for my consult in 2009 to have my tubes
He is an amazing child, brite, and much more than I could have ever planned for. However, Keagan has a sever case of eczema and is allergic to it seems like, everything... Every time we go to his allergist (every 6 months) he test positive to something new... :(
I know I am not alone, but I can sure tell you that I feel as if I am. Keagan has had eczema since birth, and the allergies have always been there as well. I can not even express how unprepared I was to handle all that Keagan has going on. And 3 years later it has not gotten any better. I am sad most of the time, and my heart breaks for Keagan daily.
I could go on for days even years about Keagan, because even though I sometimes feel like I just can't do it another day somehow I do... Some days are better than others but most of the time it is a struggle to have to see my son go through this.
I have not reached out until now and I am not even sure why? I would love to talk to others who know what we are going through. As I said before I know I am not alone but feel very alone in it most of the time.
So with all of this said, I would really like some one to talk to who can relate... All of my friends are my age and none of them have kids Keagan's age (no surprise) or have children who had any of what he does.
So if you are like me and are looking to talk I would love to chat anytime...
