Allergy members - how do you shop for food?

Can you talk me through how you go about food shopping for yourself or a member of your family that has a food allergy. Do you go to the local supermarket or specialist store? If a supermarket, do you buy from the health food aisle or regular aisles? Do you have to check every ingredient label or do products advertise themselves well enough? Do you have to buy specific foods? Is your food bill more expensive as a result? And finally does your household all eat the same meals, or does the person with the food allergy eat separate food?

Do you know what it is like to never remember what you can or can not eat , For years all that I ever ate was very basic food .Grilled chops , mashed potatoes and peas . I had the misfortune of waking up out of a long coma , with my total memory wiped .It is worse when you have to think of how sick the food is going to make you . A allergy is only one aspect of what we can consume .
