As someone who has a highly allergic disorder and has been to the ER many times with life…

I’m sorry for your allergies. They are unfortunately a very real threat to me and I count myself lucky for only being deathly allergic to shellfish. I carry an epi pen because of them. A thing i say at the outset of the piece. The point, and hopeful joke, of the article was more on the many minor food allergies I discovered late into my 20s that I had never known about because they were minor enough that they were things like never knowing carrots weren’t supposed to make your head itchy. The tag at the end may have been what angered you most but it wasn’t meant to say you shouldn’t manage your allergies, especially life threatening ones, just that you shouldn’t avoid the unknown.

Best of luck to you, I’m aware that life threatening allergies are no joke.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
