Patty's Story

I had been an ER nurse for 9 years before I began having problems with latex.  The time frame from my first severe reaction to my having to leave nursing was only 6 months and I am on Social Security disability as a result. My case started out as just latex but expanded to include cross-reactive foods and other chemicals.  I am about 1 step away from being home-bound; I have a full face respirator that I wear to go shopping.
