I have a Latex allergy, from occupational exposure in Dental Nursing and Veterinary Nursing careers; along with the associated food crosses with Latex. I am now airborne to latex, and I need to carry EpiPens.
Additionally I am a Coeliac Disease sufferer and have many environmental allergies.
I’m now studying to be an SLSO, Student Learning Support Officer. My dream of Nursing; in any capacity, has been laid to rest. It is sad to come to terms with that. However, I’ve refocused the way that I can support others.
