The Girl Behind The Hive

Growing up with food allergies isn't easy, and sometimes you feel like nobody gets it. Well, I'm the girl who does. Growing in and out of different allergies over the past twenty three years makes me a bit of an expert on living with allergies, so I am here to help by sharing my own personal experiences and answering any questions you might have. I have found the easiest way to handle food allergies is learning through other people's experiences. There weren't any people for me to look up to, learn from, or ask questions of when things felt overwhelming or I was just plain confused. I'm the Girl Behind the Hive, because I've had many, and I'm here for you.


My name is Sarah. I'm twenty four years old and with a laundry list of severe food allergies, "there's a hive on your face" has probably been one of the more common phrases heard in my life. 

Having anaphylactic food allergies since 1995 has put me at the forefront of food allergies, and when I was growing up there were no resources to answer my "growing up with allergies questions" or to help me get through it. 

I'm here to change that. I'm sharing my experiences going through life with severe food allergies and hope that it can help you.
