Last night I was thinking how I got to know about her, the medical specialist. Then I remembered, it was the family Doctor who 'did all he could" and then "threw his hands up" and said he could do no more. He claimed, people like me, went to a certain specialist and some of them had success with her. So I went to her. At that time, as far as I knew, there were no doctors specializing in environmental illnesses. shortly after the first visit, I found out she had written an array of books and papers that were very helpful.

She practiced for many decades. It was till only recently that her critics finally "got to her". They weren't able to do her in but they did leave an impression.

Her critics would say such things as chemical sensitivities do not exist. Cigarette smoke can not hurt somebody. Products that have formaldehyde will not cause any problems and the list goes on and on. I could see where they were coming from but I know how I became chemically sensitive and I know I haven't been that way for several decades. As far as I am concerned, she "healed me".

Here our Doctors are very aware thankfully... Sensitivities are really uncomfortable but Allergies are life threatening...

Sensitivities are not Allergies, Epinephrine is only use for Anaphylactic shock so you wouldn't have been given it back then or now...

"Sometimes referred to as “multiple chemical sensitivity” (MCS) or “twentieth century disease,” environmental sensitivities can result in symptoms that look like those of allergies. The key difference is that these sources of irritation do not directly affect the immune system. In other words, there is no allergen."

I know that.

As I said, I had allergies and also chemical sensitivities. To many people: they seem to be the same. They aren't. In my case, I was sensitive to epinephrine, which if given to me inadvertently, could have been fatal.

That is all in my distant past. I know when I had those 'problems', they were controversial and probably still are controversial. But then, I suspect that is what 'life' is all about.

As I've tried to explain, being 'Sensitive' to Epinephrine would not be 'Fatal'....
I am emphasising this continually because I don't want anyone especially our younger members to be afraid of using an EpiPen if one has been prescribed by a Allergy Consultant. You cannot be Allergic to your EpiPen but you can be Sensitive.
If you need it, use it. It saved my life.....

I guess we "agree to disagree".
