Make sure you know the plan before you step into a place where exposure might happen, because allergic reactions can come on quickly.
I know that a lot of people think of a nice date as going out to dinner and a movie, and while the movie part is great, the going out to dinner can be extremely stressful for food allergy sufferers.
At the time, it stung less than it does now because I was told I’d grow out of them, and it didn’t happen.
I never asked to have anaphylactic reactions to common foods and fillers or hives from simple side dishes like rice, it just happened.
The truth is, most people who have food allergies know it is our responsibility (and will readily tell you as much) to take care of ourselves and manage our health.
