Emmy’s Food Allergy Journey

Emmy’s Food Allergy Journey


(happy music)>>When I was born I was allergic to eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, rye, barley, gluten, wheat, and sesame. (music) When I was in Kindergarten, we had this huge long
table that my class sat at. I sat at the corner of the table and no one else is allowed
to sit in that corner. It was my space because my teachers were so worried that I was gonna get allergic
or have an allergic reaction to something that my
classmates were eating. So, I was in first grade when
I started my clinical study at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. My mom… I remember her coming up to me and I was asking, like,
what is it gonna be about? And she’s like, you’re gonna eat wheat? And I’m like… Really? (laughing) I’m gonna be able to eat wheat? And so, I was a bit nervous because, all my life people have been
telling me that if I eat this or if I eat that I’m gonna just die. So, it’s pretty scary. The staff is so, so nice. They were just amazing. And they supported me and took care of me. And always are looking out for me. I can now eat wheat,
rye, barley and gluten. And so now, I can sit wherever
I want in the lunch room. So, it’s pretty fun. I love the exhilaration
of trying new things, but in my heart, I also know that deep down, I’m doin’ this for like all those people out
there who feel isolated because of their food allergies. Because of you, I can eat Triscuits now. They’re my favorite. From kids like me, Thank you. (happy music)

    OMG SHES LIKE ME LMAO IM ALLERGIC TO GLUTEN, DAIRY, PURFUME, GRAINS, EGGS, CORN, SUGAR, NUTS, SOME OILS, ESSENTIAL OILS, WATER (only if I have eczema on my hands) POTATOES AND SO SO MUCH MORE (i can only eat meats and some veggies) so can one of these tv shows hit me up cause i wanna be famous lol (if any of you are allergic to this kind of stuff, its okay. I mean, at least we won't get fat and besides there are foods that we can eat and enjoy along the way 🙂 Im 11 and its super hard to deal with this stuff because you see everybody eating all of this junk and your over here eating chicken and Brussel sprouts lol. My brother is allergic to way more foods than I am and its super easy for him to deal with it because he's only allergic to stuff like chlorine and bird poop. But anyways if you are like this, your not alone, I have over 500 food allergies and it sucks. If you have this life will get better, promise

    I’m allergic to gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, rice, and most nuts. And I am a sealiac or however you say it so I can’t really get rid of my gluten allergy. But I am fine.

    Some one I loved dearly passed away due to a milk based toothpaste!
    Please everyone look at all food
    Labels
    Especially non-food items such as toothpaste !
    She was only 11 years
    Old. God bless this little girl and all food allergies sufferers you are the true warriors facing many obstacles you live fearful every day.

    It is not my, my kids or the communities responsibility to safeguard your kid from allergens. I’m tired of the bans on everything tailored around allergy kids. We have the population catering to the 1%
