Michelle began writing in hopes of providing a fun yet informative manner in which to share allergy information. Her son Nolan since infancy has had eczema, asthma, multiple anaphylactic food allergies as well as multiple environmental allergies. Michelle's son also has autism, ADHD and a severe language delay. Michelle sees not disabilities but celebrates different abilities and sees the beauty found in thinking outside the box!
