Behind the Name

Well, I went through a lot of names for this blog before I found one – actually, my mom found it – that was not only available but really fit what I wanted to say.

Indirectly, “A Need to Breathe” relates to my own food allergy which causes anaphylaxis.

Directly, however, “A Need to Breathe” relates to the struggle of every person living with a severe food allergy. We need to raise awareness for food allergies because we want to keep breathing. And for some of us, our allergy is that serious. Life and death. Tomorrow’s not a promise. But we’ve survived this long.

Now we want to thrive.

And that’s where I am. Desperately trying to thrive and sharing that journey with you. 🙂
