The puppy is begging to go out into the snow, my daughter wants to discuss golf and hubby is musing over what do make with chicken legs. Me? I’m sitting at the breakfast bar debating if I should slide on some long underwear and walk the dog before or after reading twitter to see what little soundbites from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) are waiting for me to read. Those soundbites make me crazy. Imagine holding a beautifully wrapped birthday gift in your hand when you notice some of the paper is torn and a small piece of the gift is showing through. Sadly enough, you can’t quite make out the writing, but it looks promising. Very promising, maybe even spectacular, but you can’t tell at this point. Yup. That is what all of these AAAAI tweets are like to a lay person like myself. I need to know more! Is there research being presented that will ease my asthma? More information on therapies for my kid’s food allergies?
The good stuff is coming.
Smith is on the ground there at AAAAI with thousands of allergists, researchers, scientists and people impacted by allergy, asthma and immunological conditions and disease. I looked at the abstracts and my eyes went crossed. In my most annoying of traits, I usually start emailing my friends and family who are scientists, MD’s, researchers, basically, anyone who I believe can translate this data which may impact my life.I’m holding back on those emails since Allergic Living Magazine is going to focus on full coverage in the next e-Newsletter. I know, I know, I just wrote about it being a great best kept secret just the other day. BUT, you might miss out on this important AAAAI report if you don’t sign up to receive the newsletter!

I truly appreciate everyone who has been tweeting, posting on Facebook and in social media in attempt to share information that might have a significant impact on our lives. I am grateful for all of the attendees who have traveled far and wide to attend the AAAAI Annual Meeting and to the presenters and exhibitors for their hard work to dispense information and solutions.
Looking forward to this month’s e-Newsletter from Allergic Living Magazine for more than the obvious reasons!
