Each month I write an article for GoodTherapy.org. They’re a great site with bunch of helpful resources for anyone seeking support. I strayed a bit in September from relationship and parenting issues to talk more about something affecting more and more people I meet—both in my office and outside it: food allergies and how others can react so negatively to this. Adjusting to life with a food allergy or sensitivity is difficult enough without the heaping helping of shame that often comes with it.
You can find it here at: Life with a Food Sensitivity: Would You Like Shame with That?
