Traveling with Food Allergies

I try not to make a big deal about JMonster's food allergies. It is what it is. But there are times when I panic...not huge run around and flap my arms kind of panic, but internal make my stomach feel in knots kind of panic. The kind that has you awake in the middle of the night thinking about how, what, where...

We are heading out on a family ski trip. To a ski resort in a very small town. JMonster will be in ski school while The Rev and I ski. (deep relaxing breath...no hyperventilating...)

I'm panicking.

How should I handle this? Will they for sure allow him to be in ski school? They provide lunch...is it typically pb&j? We'll bring most of our food with us but if everyone else is eating peanut butter... We'll leave them his Benadryl and epi-pens. But, what if?

I try not to live in the land of what ifs. I try and trust that he is going to be okay.

He will be okay.

But a small part of me is still panicking. Just a little.

You're so calm compared to what I think I would be! I've actually thought about this a lot and wondered what, how Maybe it's something you figure out when you have to go through it so it's not as bad as I think it would be ... alas, deep breaths. He will be okay.

He will be fine. You'll have a better feeling once you are there and talk with them about his allergies.
Where are you going??
