Life is tough...

So, yesterday I wrote about how I had an allergic reaction to a drink I had and my throat closed up. I have since gone to the doctor and have been given an EpiPen. This has really helped my state of mind until I'm able to see the allergist and find out exactly what it was that gave me the reaction...although, we think it's mango. 

Even though I know tons of people with severe food allergies, going through this process at this stage in my life is crazy. It's one of those things that you can't understand until you've lived through it. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit {okay, a lot} paranoid about eating. I mean, I eat mangoes all the time and this never happened. Anywho, when I saw this quote on Pinterest, I thought about myself and so many others I know who are going through a difficult, scary or change in life. It really helped lift my spirit and remind me that I'm tough enough to get through certain challenges in my life. And the best part is, so are you!

But Now.....Let's Party!! …...


  1. Im sure glad your going to be ok Ashleigh, it is so scary when your throat goes closed. Glad you have the EpiPen for emergencies.

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. That's so scary! Glad you were able to get help!

    I love the picture/quote. Just what I needed right now. :)

  3. have a wonderful Wednesday, Ashleigh :)..you sure are a tough girl :)

  4. Awe Sorry Ashleigh..hope you are ok...I turned 50 last year and have experienced a lot of allergieds to food Ive never had! Feel better ..I love your linky party! I wish I could get the techy stuff right to host one!

  5. I'm so sorry about your new allergy! My friend had the same thing happen in Costa Rica with mangoes as well! He'd had them all of his life and then one dinner his drink made his throat close up. He told me he's heard similar stories with people developing mango allergies. He hasn't developed any more allergies since so hopefully this will be your only one too!

  6. Other people have food allergies, but it's something you have to adjust to. In time, it will get easier, but its definitely a change and it is scary! I am glad you at least have an epi pen for now!

  7. Allergic reactions are scary! I have an issue with hives tied to my thyroid function (and body heat aka sweat) and have an EpiPen to carry everywhere.

  8. Oh no, an allergy to mangoes, ugh why couldn't it be to brussel sprouts or something like that 😉 Hope that made you smile a little as you go through this new chapter of your life and they're able to figure out what's going on. You're quote is spot on, you'll find a way to get through.

  9. "Even though I know tons of people with severe food allergies, going through this process at this stage in my life is crazy. It's one of those things that you can't understand until you've lived through it." Yes, this problem is very vivid nowadays, I've known about this from http://stopallergyguide.com/ and I understood how to avoid it :)
