Interview with Nubian Simmons
The following are my life experiences and my opinions. They are not intended to offend or offer medical advice.
1. What are you allergic to, and when were you diagnosed?
I am allergic to milk (age 15) and wheat (age 34). I can remember being 6 or 7 and always at the doctor’s office getting tested. I do not know how prevalent food allergies were 30 years ago, but my mom, a retired nurse, was determined to figure it out. Once we realized it was the milk, she searched to find anything I could eat or drink that would not cause a reaction.
