My name is Erin I am a single mom with 2 girls, 16 and 11. My Daughter Mariah(11 yo) was diagnosed with mastocytosis when she was 17 months old. By the grace of god she has only had to be hospitalized once for this. I was told Mariah would grow out of this by the time she was 5 or 6, needless to say she has not "grown out" of this, but she does very well on a day to day basis. Her main problems tend to be when the temp drops below freezing, she does not sleep well, and she has been diagnosed with a stomach ulcer this year.
