For a while, masto made me afraid of my own shadow. Now that I know more, I feel safer and it has become a blessing to me. Without it I never would have met wonderful people like you!
Masto turned my life upside down and I haven't quite gotten it right side up. I am taking it one day at a time.
I don't have mastocytosis, but I have an anaphylactic allergy to cat & rodent fur. I grew up with rabbits & guinea pigs and not only can I not have those anymore, but I always dreamed about letting my kids have tons of pets and now that won't be able to happen. I also wanted to get a kitten from the shelter and raise it as soon as I moved out on my own, and that wasn't able to happen. I have to carry 2 Epi-pens with me everywhere I go. My asthma/allergies to airborne things like vog (volcanic fog that blows in from the Big Island of Hawaii-I live on Oahu) and pollen have impacted my life in a positive way because the few weeks a year when it is difficult to breathe make me so much more appreciative of the days when I can go all day without even thinking about breathing or reaching for my inhaler. I would love to hear your answer to this question!
