Maggie answers your questions!

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.

What is your biggest challenge being at high school with an allergy?

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. 
Talk later,

Do you have any other questions you would like to ask Maggie? Leave them down below in the comments section!
