A few days ago I posted about a young woman who has been forced to quit school because of an allergy to books due to dust, mold, and chemicals. I wrote that could empathize with this young woman because of my allergies to mold and dust and my extreme sensitivity to chemicals.
A dear friend and fellow blogger, Michellina, from the-labyrinth is a student at Victoria University in Australia. Despite having similar allergies and sensitivities as I, she has managed to get the most amazing accommodations at her university allowing her to continue her education. I am in awe of all that she has managed to accomplish for not only herself but her fellow students who may or may not know how to go about getting accommodations or who may be afraid for fear of being labeled “crazy”. Please read Michellina’s post and learn all that she has managed to get done while a student at Victoria University.

I am excited to share with you a 5-Star review that Allergic to Life just received from Nonnie Jules at Rave Reviews Book Club. I am excited to be a part of this book club. As a group we read the selected book and review it and then post our reviews individually as well. Nonnie Jules posts her own reviews on her own page of the site, Nonnie’s Reviews. These reviews are separate from the Book Club’s Reviews, Current Book Selection, or Author Spotlights.
I am honored that Nonnie Jules chose my book as one of her books to review on her page. Please head over and read her review of Allergic to Life. For those of you are avid readers or authors, joining the club is free and the main membership requirement is to read and review four books during the year.
