As promised, here are my answers to the many of your questions.
A lot of the questions were about going out with friends for dinner, sleep overs etc. So I will start there.
I have a great group of friends that understand my allergy and are very aware of the problems it could cause. I always pack my auto-injector (of course) but I make sure that the friends I go out with know how to work it. If it is a new restaurant or friend I will check what the food is like (e.g. that it isn’t a thai restaurant and that the parents know that I can’t have peanuts). And just to double check I will ring the restaurant and tell them that I was coming and to wash the equipment for me, as well as asking them to be very careful when it comes to my dish. Then I just enjoy myself.
Probably that I can’t make all my friends be completely nut/peanut free all the time. I will just sit away from them and not touch them. Haha sounds mean, but that’s what I have to do.
When did you first use an auto-injector?
I have answered that in my first blog post. You can read it here.
I hope this has been useful for some of you.
