A thank you letter to my Mum on Mother’s Day - Robert aged 14:

Dear Mum

When I was born, you weren’t expecting your third child to be allergic to about every food your other two children could eat.

I am lucky to have a mother who checked every ingredient, read every fact on my allergy and protected me from danger.

My brother and sister could have chocolate and Nutella – although I can how have chocolate, I would still really like to know what all the fuss about Nutella is! When I was young, you made sure I knew what I could and couldn’t eat and why. I could never leave the house without my bag of inhalers, antihistamines and AAIs. You made sure I didn’t miss out on parties and we designed T-shirts for me to wear that alerted people of my life threatening allergies.

Although I have outgrown some of the allergies, I still can’t leave home without my bag. You never made me feel different, you encouraged me to learn all about what I could and couldn’t eat and on this Mother’s Day, I wanted to say, thank you for everything and for getting me this far.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Love Robert
