Hey everyone! How’s your weekend going? Mine started out a little scary. We went and ate pizza and then decided to go for frozen yogurt afterwards. Well, I’m pretty seriously allergic to peanuts. My mom gave me a spoon of peanut butter when I was 8 months old and quickly found out when I had a severe anaphylactic reaction. As I’ve grown older, I can manage it pretty well by taking Benedryl if I accidentally eat some. I quit carrying a Epi-Pen partly because I am usually cautious and Benedryl works in time. (Now if I were a child, this would completely call for an Epi-Pen).
Well, I decided to put some crushed cookies on my yogurt. Apparently a peanut had gotten mixed in because on my 3rd or 4th bite, I immediately tasted it and my mouth started itching severely and my tongue got really thick. It’s funny how one little peanut can cause such a reaction. I didn’t have my Benedryl with me (so bad, I know)! My mom and I loaded up all the kids quickly and I rushed to the pharmacy down the street. I grabbed a box of Benedryl and took it while waiting in line to pay. It works pretty darn quickly for me. Within about 5 minutes, I could feel the symptoms of the reaction begin to subside. It scared my kids.
Luckily most of the time, I can visit places like that and I’m just fine. Every now and then, I get a reminder that I still have this scary allergy.
