ABOUT ME


Hi, I'm Angela and welcome to my blog.

I've been interested in allergies and how to manage them since I was diagnosed myself after years of struggling with different conditions. I thought I had to live with them forever, but over time I learned how to control and manage them.

I have compiled in this blog articles that helped me to go through my allergies and get to the other side of the tunnel.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something to help you along the way.
